According to Kalhan Rosenblatt of NBC News, “Teen environmental activist Greta Thunberg delivered an emotional and scathing speech at the United Nations on Monday, accusing world leaders of stealing her dreams and her childhood with their inaction on climate change.”
First of all, who exactly invited a 16 year old to speak at the United Nations about “climate change?”
How exactly do you get on this docket?
We’ve got almost 8 billion people on this planet, and we have to put up with a 16 year old lecturing us all on “climate change?”
How about some scientist, who would at least have some semblance of a little credibility?
This kid still has two years left of high school!
I think we can all recall how stupid and immature sophomores in high school are.
But hey…, let’s have this ignorant little girl, who still hasn’t even passed high school biology or chemistry, lecture us about how irresponsible, stupid and evil we are regarding the environment.
Won’t that be fun?
Maybe we could have her lecture us on our sexual and reproductive issues next week?
‘“How dare you! You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words,’ Thunberg said.”
Hey Greta…, how dare you?! And newsflash…, your childhood IS basically over already, and you are the one who has allowed your dreams to be hijacked, if you had any besides allowing yourself to be tool, to be used by these globalist climate whackos.
‘“I shouldn’t be up here. I should be back at school on the other side of the ocean,’ the 16-year-old from Sweden told the United Nations Climate Action Summit.”
These are the only two sentences you said that I agree with!
‘“Yet you all come to us young people for hope. How dare you!’”
Uhhh, who exactly is coming to you for hope?
We’re not a tad delusional are we?
“Thunberg slammed the members of the U.N. for caring more about money and ‘fairytales of eternal economic growth’ than collapsing ecosystems, mass extinctions and people suffering due to climate change.”
“Fairytales of eternal economic growth?”
That’s a nice line, Greta…, who came up with that for you, and what video game world are you living in?
‘“You say you hear us and that you understand the urgency, but no matter how sad and angry I am I do not want to believe that because if you really understood the situation and still kept on failing to act, then you would be evil, and that I refuse to believe,’ Thunberg said.”
What exactly would you have us do Ms. Thunberg?
You seem to know exactly what is going to happen to our planet.
Please, please tell us we need to do…, I mean besides going back to living like we did in the stone ages.
I don’t suppose that would even suffice you, as I believe they ate quite a bit of meat back in those days.
And you know, they burned wood to keep warm as well.
Perhaps we should all just kill ourselves in order to save the planet?
“She also said that the ‘popular idea’ of cutting emissions by 50 percent in 10 years only yields a 50 percent chance of keeping the earth’s warming trend below the 1.5 degree Celsius threshold, which could set off ‘catastrophic chain reactions beyond human control’ if breached.”
Ha! Another newsflash for you Greta!
THE EARTH IS BEYOND HUMAN CONTROL!
The idea that you and your whacko friends have that WE can somehow control or change the earth’s climate is the real “fairytale” here.
‘“A 50 percent risk is simply not acceptable to us — we who have to live with the consequences,’ she said.”
You speak of these theoretical possibilities as if they were forgone conclusions…, just like you’d expect a child would do.
“Thunberg said the earth’s remaining CO2 budget was rapidly dwindling — citing a report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change that said the planet has experienced a more than 70 gigaton deficit in the earth’s remaining CO2 budget since January 2018.”
The only “deficit” we are experiencing here is a deficit of logic and historical global climate understanding.
“But Thunberg said leaders from the United Nations wouldn’t suggest more radical plans to reduce emissions because they are ‘still not mature enough to tell it like it is.’”
And you’re still not mature enough to understand that “what it is like” is a matter of perception.
‘“You are failing us but young people are starting to understand your betrayal,’ Thunberg said. ‘The eyes of all future generations are upon you and if you choose to fail us, I say we will never forgive you.’”
Oh, I say…, how will we all live without your forgiveness?
Late on Monday, President Donald Trump retweeted a video of her speech, saying, “She seems like a very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future. So nice to see! https://t.co/1tQG6QcVKO — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 24, 2019”
“Wang Yi, China’s foreign minister, said countries ‘must honor our commitments and follow through on the Paris Agreement,’ in a clear [jab] at the Trump administration.”
‘“The withdrawal of certain parties will not shake the collective goal of the world community,’ Mr Yi said, to applause.”
Oh yes…, please applaud Wang here from China, as he pokes at the U.S., while his country of China is FAR AND AWAY the most egregious environmental violator on the planet.
Zip it, Wang.
And I’ll tell you what Ms. Greta…, I’d like to invite you back to the United Nations in 2032, so you can explain to us all why we’re all still here and why the earth and all of its creatures have not yet perished.
At least you’ll be an adult by then who may know a little something about something.
