St. Greta demands you kneel

Because Climate Change Marxism!

Delingpole: Greta the Teenage Climate Puppet Goes Full Marxist

In her latest public statement, she says that the ‘climate crisis is not just about the environment’:

The mask slips yet again

Polar Bears thriving in Arctic, Cult of Climate Fanaticism hardest hit!

The Guardian reported, “Guardian picture editor Fiona Shields explains why we are going to be using fewer polar bears and more people to illustrate our coverage of the climate emergency.”

That is because there are too many polar bears. An estimated 25,000 to 40,000 polar bears live in the Arctic — up from just 5,000 a half-century ago.

The Guardian was too dishonest to admit it.

But the Canadian Press reported last year, “There are too many polar bears in parts of Nunavut and climate change hasn’t yet affected any of them, says a draft management plan from the territorial government that contradicts much of conventional scientific thinking.

“The proposed plan — which is to go to public hearings in Iqaluit on Tuesday — says that growing bear numbers are increasingly jeopardizing public safety and it’s time Inuit knowledge drove management policy.

Prince Harry, another climate change hypocrite

Animal Magnetism does not play the “excuse game”

Why is it that, so often, the more celebrities hector us about “climate change” and reducing our carbon footprints, the bigger hypocrites they are about it?  Forget Leonardo DiCaprio, forget Al Gore.  The UK’s Prince Harry may well be one of the worst.  Excerpts from the story, with my comments:

The Duke of Sussex is in Botswana helping to create a new forest habitat after decades of deforestation because of locals gathering firewood and through elephant activity.

He flew there, of course, on a commercial jet, in economy class – right?  Right?  Don’t be ridiculous.  He used one of the Royal Family’s private jets.

Wonder what the carbon footprint of that trip amounted to?

Speaking on the banks of the Chobe River, he referred to the speech by the UN secretary general, António Guterres, at the UN general assembly in which he warned that the world had seen unprecedented temperatures.

Meanwhile his wife was on a royal tour of Africa, accompanied by infant son Archie, a team of 13 assistants, and her personal hairdresser.

Did you get that?  Her personal furshlugginer hairdresser.  Hubris, thy name is Meghan Markle.

Wonder what the carbon footprint of that trip amounted to?

“This week, led by Greta, the world’s children are striking. There’s an emergency. It’s a race against time and one which we are losing. Everyone know it. There’s no excuse for not knowing that,” he said.

Go read it all. These are the biggest hypocrites going today. Prince Harry REALLY needs you to see how much he cares! No matter that he is engaging in the very behavior he condemns. Just look at how much he says he cares! Hell I bet he even has a bunch of  “woke” bumper stickers about climate change on his private jet!

The Cult of Climate Change and child abuse

Dennis Prager nails the Greta Thunberg Mass Extinction BS

Apparently, however, the left-wing hysteria about global warming leading to the virtual extinction of life on Earth has not moved enough adults. Many adults who do not deny that the Earth is getting warmer — such as Danish writer and environmentalist thinker Bjorn Lomborg — do deny that the threat is “existential” and do believe that the left’s solutions, such as the Green New Deal, will damage the world far more than will carbon emissions. Proof that the left is hysterical is its unwillingness to promote nuclear power — a completely clean, non-fossil fuel-based source of power. It provides France with 70 percent of its energy. Anyone who really believes life on Earth is endangered would grasp at the nuclear power lifeboat. That they do not proves what many of us have believed from the beginning: The “existential threat” scenario is another left-wing falsehood used to whip up hysteria that will lead to the left’s control of the economy and society.

And that takes us back to the children: If you can’t sell your hysteria to adults, try kids. And that is what the left has done. After all, no one is as malleable or as easily indoctrinated as children.

Consider this: If the left didn’t tell them the world is going to end, they wouldn’t worry about it. They’d be enjoying their young lives, maybe even learning to appreciate that they live in the freest country at the most prosperous time in human history. Instead, thanks to leftists (who are children in adult bodies), they live in their grip of “existential eco-anxiety.”

This is but one more way in which the left abuses children (along with telling them they are neither boys nor girls but whatever they later choose to be; teaching them contempt for their country; and depriving them of the greatest source of morality, meaning, community and happiness — any of the Judeo-Christian religions).

It’s depressing, and it’s frightening.

The scariest movies are those featuring brainwashed children. This horror show is happening in real life.

Go read it all, and then read this from Ben Shapiro

Greta Thunberg, a 16-year-old activist from Sweden, appeared before a UN climate summit to chide the adults in catastrophic terms usually reserved for bad B-disaster flicks: “You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words. … We are at the beginning of a mass extinction, and all you can talk about is money and fairy tales of eternal economic growth. How dare you?” One student intoned at a weekend rally, “All of our futures are in jeopardy.” Another student said, “We will be the last generation to survive.”

This, of course, is nonsense. We will not be the last generation to survive. The world will keep on spinning. The damage from climate change is uncertain — it may be moderate, and it may be graver. But to suggest, as ralliers did, that the world will end without ACTION! (no specific action recommended) is factually untrue.

But adults hiding behind children to avoid the difficult conversations that must take place about how to achieve solutions is nothing other than moral cowardice. At the same time leftist politicians were rooting on these children, commending them for their exuberance, the United Nations was accomplishing nothing on the issue of climate change. That’s because the lead emitters on planet Earth aren’t in the West. They’re in China and India. And as The New York Times reported, “despite the protests in the streets, China on Monday made no new promises to take stronger climate action.” Western teenagers screaming in front of cameras aren’t going to convince Chinese President Xi Jinping to lower emissions and join in a global carbon tax. Hell, Hong Kong teenagers shutting down airports can’t convince Xi to not violate international agreements.

Again, go read it all. These miscreants largely do not want solutions, they want control, and to enrich themselves. They are using propaganda to frighten everyone into action. They are using children, as the face of their rhetoric. Once more, the true face of Leftim is being laid bare. It is hideous, and it is directed at anyone or any nation, that will not bow to its demands.

Los Angeles stuck on stupid

What could possibly go wrong?

I spent most of a 3-day weekend driving to, around, and back from Los Angeles. It would be virtually impossible to get around the place without a car. That’s why Los Angeles will die if the envirofascist moonbats running the county get their way. Can you imagine a Los Angeles with no gas stations? Social engineers can. It’s part of their sustainability plan.

If carried out, the list of 159 action items included in the plan could dramatically transform LA’s landscape in the coming decades. County officials call the scheme to phase out fossil fuels the “nation’s most ambitious” regional proposal.

Modern economies at every level — including the local level — rely heavily on fossil fuels to function. Jacobins have decided that these precious fuels will have no place in America’s second largest city in the near future. Because global warming.

No sane person thinks that the global climate is perceptibly influenced by whether people in Los Angeles drive or try to get around on bicycles like Cuban peasants. But sanity has nothing to do with authoritarian virtue signaling.
