Andrew Bolt rips teen climate activist Dr. Greta as ‘deeply disturbed’ – ‘I have never seen a girl so young & with so many mental disorders treated by so many adults as a guru’ – Greta Responds

  • (Watch: Teen activist Greta Thunberg on her climate worry: ‘When I was 11, I became ill. I fell into depression, I stopped talking, & I stopped eating. In two months, I lost about 10 kilos of weight’

    Greta Responds to Bolt:

    Greta: “I am indeed ‘deeply disturbed’ about the fact that these hate and conspiracy campaigns are allowed to go on and on and on just because we children communicate and act on the science. Where are the adults?

  • Why do greens find Greta so fascinating? I think Andrew Bolt hit the nail on the head, the certainty is the key.

    Certainty is alluring to people who are tormented by their own unacknowledged doubts.

    That doubt must be there; if the millions of people who claim to be worried about climate change wholeheartedly believed the world was about to end, the way Greta does, they would abandon their normal lives and march until the world changed.

    Greta’s certainty is a taste of the freedom from doubt they yearn for. Greta’s apparent purity of purpose, her refusal to fly, her innocence, is an inspiration to climate believers who feel shame for their personal weakness, for all the carbon compromises they make in their daily lives.

    This in my opinion is why any suggestion that Greta’s certainty might be a product of her mental condition draws such a furious response; if Greta’s certainty is unfounded, if her certainty is a symptom of her mental disorders, then Greta’s certainty is false. The magic is broken.
