Greta urges climate action: "When your house is on fire you don’t wait another 10, 20 or 30 years before calling the fire department."
But Climate Skeptic Pierre Gosselin responds: "You certainly don't call the firemen when the room temperature rises from 14.5C to 15.5C and hysterically insist the house is on fire. If you did, they'd call the mental health authorities and have tou brought to a nuthouse!"
Michele Stirling of Friends of Science: "In 2007 just three years after the SARS epidemic hit, WEF had listed pandemic as a critical risk for global economies. By 2020 climate change hysteria by the wise men and women of the WEF had pushed pandemic off the list.
One reason is that in 2019, WEF surveyed stakeholders to see what other people thought were risks. In their survey of 800 stakeholders, they included 200 global shapers kids. That's literally a quarter of their survey, asking them what the greatest global risks were and all those Greta indoctrinated youth said climate change of course. So that's like asking your babysitter about how to manage your investment portfolio. That's a big fail."
Greta Thunberg denounced world leaders for their main focus on what she called “the fairy tale of eternal economic growth.” ...Now Europe’s main scientific body, the European Academies Science Advisory Council (which comprises of the National Academies of Science of EU Member States, plus Norway, Switzerland and UK), has followed in Greta’s footsteps, hitting out against policy makers and governments who prioritise economic growth.
“Generation Greta gets it. Our focus should be on well-being and welfare, but our economic system puts all focus on growth and GDP which adds fuel to the climate and biodiversity crises.” That’s how the European Academies Science Advisory Council press release highlights the main take of its report that calls for “‘transformational’ change that is necessary if policy-makers and their public (sic) are to support the conclusions of the advocates of change.” ... Tracking happiness could be the key to beating climate change, a group of European scientists has said.
Tony Thomas has a disturbing piece over at Quadrant.org, concerning an Australian organization allegedly run by child activists. It’s now urging kids to initiate creepy conversations with adults as a means of spreading climate propaganda. ...
These statements call to mind 17-year-old Greta Thunberg’s assertion that “We can not have climate justice without gender equity.”
Climate justice. First Nations justice. Racial justice. Gender equity. What does this collection of causes tell us? That these young people aren’t rebels at all. Nor are they independent thinkers.
WWF International: "Transformative change is urgently needed in our productive sectors, including our food systems, forestry, fisheries, infrastructure and extractives, and in the finance sector. These transformations need to happen fast if we are to limit risks of higher restoration costs and irreversible damage, including new pandemics and species extinction. We must transform our food systems so that enough healthy and nutritious food is produced for all, within planetary boundaries."
Since the 1980s, 29% of human CO2 emissions were cancelled out by the CO2-induced greening of the Earth. The post-2000 vegetative greening expansion has been so massive (5.4 million km²) its net areal increase is equivalent to a region the size of the Amazon rainforest.
