"Ignore for a moment both the grotesque cynicism of egregiously exploiting a clearly troubled and vulnerable child to advance an eco-totalitarian political agenda, and the incongruity that few of us can whistle up a $4million, 18-metre (60ft) yacht."
Morano: "The Green New Deal is nothing more than the same solutions they were peddling in the 1960s and 70s for the overpopulation scare for the resource scare with limited resources. All of that is the same exact solution. They're using is global warming as the latest environmental scare to have the same solutions of wealth redistribution, sovereignty, limiting treaties, and massive intervention is central planning.
Arnold Schwarzenegger, when he was governor in a video address to the state he told Californian's they should air-dry their clothes for six months on the clothesline -- for six months in order to reduce their carbon footprint.

“So, I’m a senior at CSU Chico, said the student. “So, my question is, you seem adamant about climate change.”“Of course,” the student continued after Sanders assented. “So what ways would you take to practice what you preach if you were to become president?

NYT on Hollywood's portrayal of environmentalists: "The trend of linking environmentalism to eco-terrorism is not confined to superhero and genre flicks, Svoboda said. In the 2017 indie “First Reformed,” Ethan Hawke plays a radicalized pastor who plots to blow himself up at a church service attended by a polluting industrialist." ...
“It plays into conservative talking points that environmentalists are out to reduce the pollution and restrict lifestyles and are genocidal,” Svoboda said. “They create mass murderers who are the only ones fighting climate change.” In a contrarian piece for The Washington Post, the film journalist Sonny Bunch said as much himself, opining that environmentalists made for ideal bad guys because they want to make our lives worse by banning straws, large families, plane travel and red meat.
Greta Thunberg's trans-Atlantic voyage on a 'zero-carbon yacht' has been rocked by revelations that crew will fly to New York in a gas-guzzling plane to bring the boat back to Europe.
