I'll wade in, why not. She has so much power right now I don't think she even gets it. People are loving the young person scolding adults idea - makes us all look like fools because she is willing to say the things nobody else is willing to. She doesn't play by the rules. 

But - I thought her basically crying whiny speech to the UN was almost to the point of being rude, she was not showing maturity in controlling emotions. I understand she is still a child and it must be hard, but it she wants to make a real change then you need to deliver the message to the leaders of the world with maturity and not be too radical. 

If she is too radical and in-your-face I am pretty sure the powers that be will stop giving her a soap box to stand on. 

Use your power carefully and wisely Greta. Don't scowl at President Trump - engage with him - draw him in - be the better, smarter, wiser person and make the world feel DUMB for not listening to you. Don't whine and bitch!

Why all the hateful comments towards a 16 yr old kid?  She felt strongly enough about something that's more serious and impactful than choosing the right scrunchy to go with her top, and did a lot to gain an audience with whom to share her concerns.  Agree with her or not, but, flinging a lot of crap at her is wrong, and says more about the commenters than it does her.

Good question. It's baffling. She has triggered, not even intentionally, about a dozen SAists' Depends into a massive wad. It's half funny at least. You've got LB making socks, fastyacht is bitching about anything he can think of, including the definition of science for FS. There was some pent up political diarrhea over there. Hope they make it out without dysentery. (I spelled dysentery correctly after about six tries because I know spelling is important to you Guy.)

I felt her speech was basically a cry baby who does not know anything but what she has been told. And at that age, I guess it about right.

I saw a Meteorologist talk about water vapor being the most important green house gas. It made sense since Europe and the USA had bee stripped (denuded) of it's native forests. But we have been planting so many trees again that the Hydrologic cycle is kicking into high gear. Meaning more transpiration from all the trees and plants that the people now whining planted over the last 50 years.

Any, it's another way to look at it. Remember, Plants like it warm. God Bless the warmth

The idea that children and young adults can't understand what's going on or make informed decisions is the height of idiocy.

The scientific community is in nearly unanimous agreement that the globe is warming and we're going to be in trouble....... and she wants us to take measures to try to ameliorate some of that.  If you have a problem with her science, cool.  If all you've got is 'she's a young tool being used for politics', then congratulations on attacking the messenger.

Precisely. The boat was commissioned by the Gitana team in 2015. The Malizia team and Thunberg are reusing sunk carbon costs incurred by the de Rothschild family several years ago. Had Greta commissioned it for the purpose of sailing a zero emmission boat across an ocean, the critics would have a point.

Why Greta Thunberg triggers the troglodytes among us

In spending any time probing the blather of bottom-feeders, there's a danger of amplifying it.

A risk of implying that it's common, ubiquitous even. It isn't. On the whole, it's not as though The Internet has it in for Greta Thunberg.

The teardowns and tirades aren't everywhere: in my feed they certainly don't outweigh all the love and praise, the admiration and all the go you good things.

But there's an underbelly. A cruel and creepy world where it's apparently perfectly fine — nay, encouraged — for adults, generally but not exclusively male adults, to shred a 16-year-old to pieces.

Greta ticks all the boxes — triggers the troglodytes amongst us — in some wholly predictable ways.

She's a girl. To say our culture hates girls is, of course, an overstatement. Afterall, we enjoy looking at girls and having them sing and shimmy for us.

We quite like it, say, when they swim fast enough to earn "us" a gold medal.

We especially like them consuming our products and chiming about them on social media. But we largely abhor girl culture.

Things that girls like, things that girls are interested in, are routinely devalued and considered as trivial.

If a book, a band, a film, a foodstuff has a disproportionate teen-girl following — think Twilight, think Taylor Swift, think Billie Eilish — it's rendered culturally unimportant at best and as vacuous crap at worst.

The moment girls scream and cry over something is the moment our culture has decided it's wholly unimportant.

She's not just a girl — she's a girl with Asperger's

She's not just a girl though.

We like certain 16-year-olds. Ideally, ones that look like they're on the cusp of blossoming womanhood. Barely legal in porn parlance

The spotlight for girls in our culture shines on the ones that are a tad salacious.

This won't go unpunished though. Let's not pretend being sexual doesn't come at a cost; let's not pretend that double standards don't abound — but it's the mandate.

If we're going to pay her any attention, the least she can do is offer us something enticing to look at. To smile for us. To not be too strident. To play nice.

Greta Thunberg isn't a 16-year-old doing sexiness for us. She's not performing femininity, she's not exchanging eroticism for a platform to talk about the environment.

She's a soft-spoken girl with bare skin and pigtails. And because this packaging is so unfamiliar on the world stage — because we have no real track record of paying attention to girls who look like this — it's acceptable to ignore her.

She's not performing adult womanliness in the way we expect, so we downplay her as just a child. And we don't consider children as sources of authority, of expertise.

They're naive, and their words — their wants, their hopes — get discounted.

But she's not just a girl. She's a girl with Asperger's. And Asperger's is commonly perceived as a disability.

And the disability frame means she's not neurodiverse. Her differences aren't what make her different — make her amazing, rather.

She's rejected as fanatical. As a single-minded obsessive. As someone who keeps banging on about the same thing over and over again after everyone else has left the room.

This enables Greta to be brushed-off as not comprehending nuance, of not "getting" social cues. As failing to understand how the world really works.

As being not only naive, but as a bit "broken". Certainly too broken — according to haters on the internet — to be listened to about policy matters.

Greta is the ghost of a very dismal Christmas future

But she's not just a girl with Asperger's. She's a Swedish girl with Asperger's.

I

In lots of ways, we quite like the Swedes.We like their noir novels and their flat-pack furniture. Their ABBA, their Lykke Li. Their cosy cocoa-and-cake culture.

And we often find appeal in much of their public policy. Appeal right up until the point where we have to ponder paying for it.

Then, abruptly, Sweden is slammed as a socialist dystopia.

When a girl from Sweden tells the world all the ways that they are failing the planet, all the toil we're neglecting to do for the earth, she's dismissed as a meddler.

She's a person — and not just a person, but a mere girl — who's looking down at us, who's judging us.

If we can work out ways to disregard her — to use her age and accent and Asperger's against her — then her scowling and judgment doesn't matter.

In considering the source as less than, we can rationalise not paying proper attention. Afterall, the judgment of our inferiors matters little.

But she's not just a girl, with Asperger's, who's Swedish. For the kicker, she's a girl, with Asperger's, who's Swedish and who's asking us to do more than just separate our rubbish.

And this is what it's really about. The pigtails and soft voice takes a backseat to the true problem with Greta Thunberg: she reminds us of the litany of our collective failings.

Not just about how we don't care enough, but that we're not doing enough. That we're not outspoken enough. That we're not sacrificing.

That even if we acknowledge that there's a climate calamity, we're not forgoing anything for it.

ust as we hate vegans because they remind us that there's a dark cost — paid by animals every bit as sentient as our fawned-over puppies — to that burger, Greta is the ghost of a very dismal Christmas future.

It's equal parts predictable and reprehensible that a girl gets targeted because she's saying and doing what we're too — variously — lazy, complacent and greedy to do ourselves.

But the reasons she bristles, the reasons that a soft-spoken 16-year-old Swede has the capacity to stir such defensiveness and prompt such venom, is testimony to the fact that she's doing an awful lot right.

So 95% of all greenhouse gases are water vapour, 4% are CO2...of the CO2 3% of the 4% is man made.... giving a total man made CO2 content of 0.12%....I'm panicking, aren't you?  Wow I can't wait to knock that down to 0% and see what a difference it makes as regards global warming due to CO2 level

The figures I quoted were from a climate scientist (an emiritus professor from Auckland University), he totally rubbishes global warming being attributable to CO2 emissions and given the ever increasing amount of scientists now coming out and agreeing with him (including those who once lead/co authored IPCC papers) I tend to agree with him. Computer models previously used to predict climate change temperatures/sea level rises are also coming under increasing scrutiny in the scientific community and have been found to be grossly inaccurate.

I read your paper and it is interesting thank you, but note also it is based on computer models and does not distinguish CO2 level from their proposed CO2 effect ie. somehow they think man made CO2 at a level of 0.12% is responsible for 9-26% of global warming? Scientists quite rightly are beginning to question that premise. However time will tell but atm I believe the latest  CO2 levels quoted by NOAA show over the past 4 years they have remained pretty static at 404-408 ppm so I'm not panicking....and remember that's parts per million.... 

All our yachts are constructed from resins/materials sourced from the petrochemical industry..hulls, sails, spars, wet weather gear....I for one do not lose any sleep over that....apparently Greta doesn't either...which makes her the biggest hypocrite of all given her hate of the petrochemical industry.

Love him or loath him I believe US citizens are fortunate to have a president who doesn't buy into this religion at least. Here in NZ we unfortunately are suffering under our most pathetic Prime Minister in history who is trying to force us down a road to zero carbon emissions through taxes and banning of future fossil fuel exploration permits while chasing a future job at the UN....this mind you in a country which produces a fraction of CO2 produced by the rest of the world. We once had what was globally termed a rock star economy, our economy now is heading down the gurgler.

The sad thing about that silly meme is that too many of those predictions actually have come about to some extent and many more would possibly have done so without environmental protection laws or other intervention.

 

#2 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Famine#20th_century

A few of the great famines of the late 20th century were: the Biafran famine in the 1960s, the Khmer Rouge-caused famine in Cambodia in the 1970s, the North Korean famine of the 1990s and the Ethiopian famine of 1983–85.

The latter event was reported on television reports around the world, carrying footage of starving Ethiopians whose plight was centered around a feeding station near the town of Korem. This stimulated the first mass movements to end famine across the world.

https://www.environment.gov.au/protection/ozone/ozone-science/ozone-layer

The global community has taken action to restore the ozone layer. The Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer (the Montreal Protocol) came into effect in 1987. It commits countries to phasing out production and import of all the major ozone depleting substances. Australia manages its obligations to this international agreement through the Ozone Protection and Synthetic Greenhouse Gas Management Act 1989.

Every four years, the World Meteorological Organisation and the United Nations Environment Programme review the state of the ozone layer. These reviews show that the abundance of ozone depleting chemicals in the atmosphere is now declining and the ozone layer is expected to recover to pre-1980 levels over the mid-latitudes by 2050 and over the Antarctic by 2065.

And I could go on but there's little point in arguing with the unconverted by now.

Shortforbob as a student in the '80s/'90s I was totally against climate pollution and it's affect on the environment, But then I grew up and did my own thinking, looked at what was actually not happening around me and quickly came to the realisation the world wasn't going to end, that CO2 is not the cause of global warming and moved on. For sure atmospheric pollutants such as CFC's, NO and SO2 are bad, but by and large they are being brought under control. I can absolutely guarantee you that this global CO2 induced climate change hysteria is going to be laughed at in the next 10-20 years just as many of the items in the above list are laughed at now ( and just as the often heard statement "....97% of all scientists agree" is now). And you may think I'm uneducated and stupid for believing what I do but I'm just part of the ever increasing scientific community that are at last coming out, asking the hard questions and rubbishing this religion. It's easy to tax CO2...but try taxing water vapour. 

What should be focused on I think we all can agree is plastic pollution and general rubbish pollution globally. Now that is going to stuff this planet a lot more quickly than 0.12% of man made CO2 in the atmosphere.  

As sailors we spend a lot of time in nature and we should be the first to spot climate change. I freely admit where I sail in Wellington NZ that over the past 15 years I have noticed climate change in that summer temperatures are warmer, we get better summers and the predominant northerly wind has now changed to equal mixes of north and south. For me climate change has been great but the reality is climate is constantly changing and in another 15 years it'll probably be back to what it was. I do not accept CO2 has been responsible for this. So I'm not sorry to say I will keep using my petrol car to tow my finn to regattas around the country, I'll keep using resins, carbon fibre masts, laminate sails and increase my carbon footprint even more by flying to international regattas around the world just as all sailors on this website do. And I'll not wring my hands about it, give it a second thought nor apologise for it.

Well, this here is one smart guy.  He looked around at the changing climate around him, did his own thinking, decided it was all good, exonerated CO2 and is off on his merry way to the next regatta, because things will "probably change back".   Let's bet the farm on that one hey, guys!

But, but what's this about "water vapour"?  Is someone proposing to tax H20 for something these days?  News to me!  I'm all for it.  That will really but some funding behind "Infrastructure Week."  How about N2?  Lots of that as well.

 

Maybe we should put this whole post in Comic Sans and break out the purple.

Pretty sure he was being sarcastic to the post he responded to.

Interesting backstory to Greta. She caused her parents to become vegetarians and give up air travel, to lower their carbon footprint. As one of her diagnoses (besides Asperger's and OCD) is "selective mutism", one can assume she gave them the silent treatment until they did what she wanted.

A kid who can do that to her parents at about 14 years of age is someone to be very wary of, especially when they become the figurehead of an international hysterical cult.

wake up you irrational c-nts

it's not so much how the message is delivered as that it's a critically important message.

kuntz, we're trashing our world and refusing the life on it it's basic right to exist, ANY intent towards trying to mitigate that obscenity is good intent.

now stfu with all your absurd misplaced cynisyms, it's pissing up ropes. 

 

now see how easy that was?

And while all the carbon hysteria goes on and on, not many people seem to care about the oceans being poisoned by plastic and Fukushima radioactivity. No doubts at all about the science there.

obviously you're spot on, we tragically ignore those things at our peril, but a fixation on looming global climate dysfunctions stemming from negligent pollution discharge isn't hysterics, so why refer to it as such?

I'll agree though, the emphasis on one thing and not the rest of the environmental decimation is more than a bit fkg bizarre. we totally fkg blew it..

Yeah, nobody cares.

Right.

It is a lot easier (and makes better TV) to have demonstrations and speeches calling for us to stop climate change, which is impossible, than it is to work constructively to lessen plastic pollution, which is possible and urgently needed.

Two stories that reflect the whole Greta/ACC thing: Chicken Little....the Sky is falling, and the National Suicide of the Xhosa nation: Google it and have a read. A young girl convinces the tribe to destroy all their crops and cattle, and most of them starve to death.

I hope greta will sail in and make a statement before flying back first class. 

I hope you're in the back of that same plane, when the heads back up.

1) you are a fucking communist, and a dumb one at that.  this is america, we have the first amendment you dumb prick.

2) i tuck my kids in every night and pray to god they never end up in a situation like parkland.  i support the kids from parkland that have advocated for stricter gun laws...  you see i have a nuanced position here that is beyond your minimal comprehension skills (see 1)

3) my kids are admittedly quite privileged, so they likely wont ever be in a situation like parkland, unlike the millions of kids growing up in high-crime areas that don't have this privilege

4) giving victims a voice and a platform to advocate is clearly a privilege supplied to a chosen few, and if youve payed attention to america over the last few decades it is clear that urban and minority victims of gun crimes have been given basically no platform, in stark contrast to the victims at parkland.

so I will ask you, are the urban victims of crime and specifically gun crime under or over represented in their access to media platforms vis-a-vis the parkland kids?

answer the question, or launch a personal attack, the choice is up to you but i do already know that you are clearly an idiot.

Now that statement quite probably wins the internet for the most ignorant most smugly self-satisfied post of the day, or maybe the year.

Spot the "high-crime areas".

I'm pretty sure that many of the victim's parents also "prayed to god".  Maybe the wrong god?  Not hard enough?  Sincerity lacking?   

Anyway,  that was before they got to receive the "thoughts and prayers" of so many concerned citiizens.  Question for you:  Is it appropriate to pray to god while sitting on your hands doing nothing about the gun-sickness that infects this country?
