The neo-con talking points are providing this narrative.


Is this what Breibart says about it?


The climate alarmists needed a new spokesperson. Someone beyond reproach.

They found one, Greta. She fit the criteria.

Child-Female-Handicaped

The perfect trifecta.



As far as being scared ?

Not scared. Angry...

Angry that a child is being exploited by adults with a agenda.



Is this what Breibart says about it?

I donít know.

You should go there and report back...

I expect all the virtue signalers to block me when I call them out on their BS. Figure blocking me is easier than trying to explain, justify or make excuses for their own inactions to themselves and everyone else.
It's called living in denial.

Yeah, but then what's the point of talking? There's no reason to saying anything if everyone left listening agrees and has no differing view.

2 of the reasons of discussing something is to learn, and to persuade.

I learned. I started reading ipcc reports because I'm just a stoopid denier.
Then asked the legitimate question of why they think the world is ending based on these reports.
It's like the ipcc and the cult are speaking different languages.
My conclusion is ipcc says "A", the cultists read it or I'm starting to think they just hit "control F" to find what they want to see, so they end up reading "B" then go around telling people "C".
But "A" and "C" have nothing to do with each other.
I'm still reading the latest 1,170 page report.
It's going to take a while.
Actually I'll skip to the last 20 or 30 pages to see if that's where it says the world is ending. But I do plan on reading it all.
Notice how they haven't had any responses directory quoting segments of the report. They will take like 1 or 2 sentences way out of context, quote those and try to blow them out of proportion for all their worth.

I think the cult has over played their hand, everyone knows it and they are going for broke.
Now I'm convinced if people read the ipcc reports them selves that is the worst thing that could happen, then it over for the cult.

To make fossil fuel companies quit producing, the demand has to end.
Lehman Brothers went belly up in November,2008.They,and I believe,Nate Hagans would be characterized at 'freshwater' economists.They're the laissez-faire,free-market liberalists who nearly melted down the entire global economy in 2008,costing US taxpayers $10-trillion as of 2009.Their 'Efficient Financial Markets Hypothesis' was predicated upon conditions which never existed in the real world,and are structurally impossible to exist.The very theory behind it revealed the inherent paradox,and oxymoronish nature of it's very premise.
I don't believe Nate Hagans knows anything but free market liberalism,which,as far as I'm concerned makes him an enemy of mankind.There's a lot of things he knows nothing about ,which makes him very dangerous.

Oh, and while your at it.

I need the dates for the #2 polluting country India as well...

Thanks...

Please bear in mind,that under UN,IPCC framework protocols,both China and India,as defined as 'undeveloped' nations,are exempt from certain emissions restrictions,until they attain industrial parity.They are fully authorized to build and operate the coal-fired power plants.
In the meantime,they've already exceeded the Paris Agreement,left us in the dust,with respect to alternate energy,electric car adoption,etc..The United States is the backwards nation now.

My experts are the ones in the ipcc who say they world isn't going to end in 12 years.
Consider a 185-mph,CAT-5, with a 23-foot surge,coming ashore,on top of a King Tide,and then stalling there for 36-hours,with 63-inches of rain,like Harvey.That would constitute the end of Miami.And it's currently not beyond the realm of reality,considering the last two years.
In this context,or caveat,A.O.C.is speaking very reasonably.

Or the humidity will continue to climb,there will be no overnight cooling,and the heat index will be so high during the day,that being outside will be death sentence,as in El Salvador today.
