Beware Greta Thunberg’s science fiction
— the end of the world is not nigh

In 15th-century Peru, we learned last week, children were sacrificed to propitiate to the Chimú gods, in an attempt to end natural disasters caused by the climatic phenomenon we now call, appropriately enough, El Niño. In our time, the roles have been reversed. Now children warning of an impending climate catastrophe are the ones that have to be propitiated. Now it is they who demand sacrifices. The arrival of Greta Thunberg in New York on Thursday was one of many recent events that illustrate how rapidly modern environmentalism is degenerating into a millenarian cult. Thunberg, 16, is in New York at the invitation of the United Nations,

This Swedish Aspberger's patient / mini-me socialist is the equivalent of the kids who saw the Blessed Virgin Mary at Fatima to the left. This is so false and is only about government control over people. NASA admitted last night that any changes in climate are related to the earths orbit around the sun and has nothing to do with man-made CO2.

As a Scandinavian, she ought to be most worried about glaciers, an ice age. Throughout earth's history there have been many ice ages, the last one recently (in earth history terms) came to an end as the southerly edge of the glaciers ground and scraped their way northward, a mere 10,000 (or so) years ago.

It would be interesting to know the story behind the Greta boat scheme. Who planned all this? Who financed all this? How was the girl chosen? Is money to be made merchandising the story? Will the girl's adventure be made into school teaching material to indoctrinate our youth? Etc. This girl didn't wake up one day, decided to save the world and shazam the yacht appeared.

It is called the art of the "Moral Blackmail". Who would dare attack a child worried about the future world she has to live in! Its on a par with those using "the children" (deliberately placed in harm's way by their parents,guardians and/or kidnappers) to raise "compassion" in support of Illegal emigration into the US.

"I want you to feel the fear I feel every day." This is always the cry of the Left. They use fear as a whip to herd people into doing foolish things. Generally, things done in fear are regretted because, first, the fear is often overstated (check), and second, plans to handle a problem concocted under the shadow of fear are badly considered (double check). In this specific case, the "science" behind Thunberg's fear is getting weaker all the time. For example, rising oceans are not rising any faster than they did hundreds of years ago. Storms are NOT more frequent or severe. Droughts are not being caused by climate variations. While some ice packs are melting, some are growing. There is no mass melt off. Polar bears are NOT dying off. Most of all, our temperature record is incomplete, faulty, and being "adjusted" by Alarmists who are strongly invested in proving warming is happening. The most modern and reliable records are showing NO warming. Raw data (unadjusted) shows no warming. Further, even the faulty science Alarmists have says that even if we do everything they say, it will do almost NO GOOD. Yet, they would have us flock to their non-solution. Climate is always changing. There is little that can be done but adapt and panicking over it is foolish. It is a slow process and whatever its outcome, we will have to deal with it in thoughtful ways. The worst thing about this is that the Alarmists are taking advantage of a young girl with known mental/behavioral problems. It's a variation of the Salem witch trials. From one recounting "a group of young girls in Salem Village, Massachusetts, claimed to be possessed by the devil and accused several local women of witchcraft. As a wave of hysteria spread throughout colonial Massachusetts, a special court convened in Salem to hear the cases". Seem familiar? 19 people were hanged. 1 was pressed to death. 7 died in prison. 27 in total. Fear was the spark for this as well.

The author of this article is just as much of a guppy as those swallowing what the little autistic climate savant is peddling. This is the first I heard that the "little Ice age" was caused by the great die-off of indigenous peoples after the Europeans arrived in the New World when they-the indigenous ones-stopped causing warming (which apparently was a good thing at the time) because they were dead. At least said author advises against drastic measures to mitigate the change that he believes is happening. This is getting confusing.

Greta should be a lot more concerned with the Muslim hoard which has overrun her country. At her age she’s a perfect target for a gang rape. Someone should remind her and all of the ecoloons that not one of their predictions has ever come to fruition. In 1991, they warned that by 2000 all of the world’s coastal cities would be under water. The only change in our coastlines in all that time has been caused by tidal shifting of some sand, but that’s it. The water is no higher than it was 30 years ago.

"The unsmiling stare. But then you learn she has struggled with mental health conditions, including high-functioning autism and obsessive-compulsive disorder. This makes it hard to criticize her." Right. I criticize the people who believe her rantings. Fifteen days to cross the Atlantic. For most of us, there goes our two week vacation. Oh, I forgot, young and dumb millenials do not work so they have all the time in the world. If this scam is what I think it is, pretty soon her father will not have to work either. Michael Moore's loose-knit parents used their child in a similar way. Gain sympathy then collect the money. If we gave the UN ten billion dollars tomorrow, Climate Change would either disappear or it would get worse to force us to up the donation.

Much more is behind this this special needs child. Greta's mother is a famous opera singer in Europe and published a book saying that Greta's eating disorder, autism, Aspergers, mutism, and problems of special needs children in general are caused by same forces harming the climate, that the world isn't sustainable enough. For 3 decades the US political class has diverted billions of US taxpayer dollars to create a $4 billion a day global industry about something that doesn’t exist, ie, a CO2 crisis. Weaponizing children–even special needs children like Greta Thunberg–is peanuts for them.

City Hall’s Commission on Human Rights released the new measures this week that could pose up to a $250,000 fine. The restrictions say the term “alien” — typically used to refer to a noncitizen — is a loaded phrase meant to categorize migrants as 'other' and dehumanize them." Before we consider the attack

There are a number of things that climate activists don’t want the rest of us to do, like eating meat and flying on airplanes. They seem to have decided that discouraging flying is a better bet than compulsory vegetarianism, so several European countries are moving in that direction. In Sweden, the government “is considering making it mandatory for travel companies to declare the climate impact of their long-haul trips.” "The companies should inform customers of the climate impact of long-haul trips when advertising or selling tickets, the government said on Friday."

But this time there’s an asterisk: Olympic champion Kipchoge performed his feat under conditions so tightly controlled to maximize his success that it won’t appear in the record books. The 34-year-old Kenyan completed the 42.195 kilometers (26.2 miles) in 1 hour, 59 minutes, 40.2 seconds at the INEOS 1:59 Challenge, an event set up for the attempt.

In a post called “Not just a fake Indian,” Scott discussed Elizabeth Warren’s claim that, as a young teacher, she was let go because she became pregnant. The claim is false, as demonstrated by records of the school board in question and confirmed by what Warren herself said in 2007. Warren is sticking to her story. She is an inveterate liar. One point that Warren keeps making is that her (fake) experience as a pregnant woman in the workforce mirrors that of millions of women in the 1950s, 60s, and 70s. I’ve heard Warren’s supporters in the media say the same thing in her defense.

The bar just got higher for deputies to make marijuana arrests in Pinellas County. Pinellas Sheriff Bob Gualtieri and Pinellas-Pasco State Attorney Bernie McCabe on Wednesday issued a memo cautioning deputies about making pot arrests in light of a new law legalizing a type of cannabis called hemp. While the memo only applies to the county’s 820 or so deputies, some Pinellas County police departments have also raised the standards for their officers to make marijuana arrests since the state law went into effect July 1. Wednesday’s memo marks the first time the county’s top prosecutor has issued an official stance on which marijuana cases his office is willing to pursue.
