I know. It's hard to keep up with technology. Here's a fake video from Siemens, a fake tech company trying to take away airplanes.
Then irony is that Greta is at the UN climate gabble right now
Nope. That's not it. I don't "fear" my shitty little car. I just don't see where you are going to make all these changes economically. I mean, let's see. The politicians in my state are pushing "renewables" while they are also in a budget disaster, can't pay for the road repairs, school stuff, tolls proposed, all sorts of dumbfuckery. But yeah, let's legislate that instead of 20c per kWH it should be 30. And what else, are we going to legislate some kind of insulation? And who will pay? I will. Or some special assessment tax. OK so I pay.I don't think there's even that much trolling here. I think it's the YouTube algorithm etc pushing wild fears of C02 reduction. FastYacht is not a troll. And he sounds frugal as all get out. I just think he, along with others, fear large policies to drive major carbon reductions, like a much faster transition to renewables, will somehow mean he can't even have a shitty little car anymore. And bodega fears he won't be able to call an ambulance or get his Amazon package. Don't tell him 900 Amazon employees did the climate strike in Seattle Friday.
<whatever>Then irony is that Greta is at the UN climate gabble right now
- the UN has de-platformed the USA - because orange man bad ?
- Greta is railing against the US, amongst others
So after the US saved Europe, they (and the Germans) are giving it to you with both fingers, and you support that.
It's time for a deck carlin video:toecutter said:Actually, I do have a very good idea.
Don't buy into consumerism. It's some sweatshop worker in China or India that's burning dirty fuel by the bucket load to make the latest techno-gadget, quad bike or air con unit (a.k.a. "stuff"). He knocks off work, goes home and uses fuck all energy until work starts tomorrow. The - non battery powered - container ship and big rig then spews filth to bring you your latest order of stuff. You get in your gas guzzling SUV every weekday to drive to a job you hate because it empowers you to buy more stuff. After a few years or so, you throw your old stuff to the kerb to make way for some new stuff. The stuff thrown out on the kerb will go to landfill if you're lucky or otherwise end up in the ocean or in other (formerly) pristine environments.
If you must have stuff, buy it from some dickhead that wants it gone for no good reason. Just because old mate next door buys himself a quad bike, doesn't mean you have to. Get a horse instead. "Need" an air conditioner? Open the windows and install a fan instead.
Want a huge house? buy a cottage instead, You won't win any pissing contests with it, but you'll have a nice warm fuzzy feeling that you're doing something good for the environment in general, not just some beat up climate change claptrap.
And so on and so on.
She is aware that people are saying this, and recently made a public statement that she is working alone. She does not have handlers. I have not seen any credible evidence to the contrary. Got any?I don't want to drag the lass down - but I feel terribly sorry for her. She is being manipulated, and will be spat out the other end of the machine when she has served her purpose.
Sad, perhaps pathetic attempt at sarcasm. Greta's message isn't about Greta at all. I'm pretty sure she'd rather not be doing what she is doing, having worked with a lot of kids with Aspergers. LB, I used to like some of your invective, but now I think you are bordering on an attention whore. Ignorant, too, if you actually believe the stuff you are writing.Yes ignore those philistines that don’t drink at the fountain of Facebook. Repent ye non believers as judgment day is coming!
Fate has created a new messiah, a child that has come from the frozen north to save the world from the evil merchants. But a child that carries the word of truth and in her gentle hands she holds the holy grail - the global temperature remote, and by her fame she shall turn back the hoard of Locusts, calm the ever increasing tempests and hold back the sea from covering the earth.
Repent now for your sins as Saint Greta of Ikea speaks the truth! The end time cometh.
The rapture has begun! Those that come to hear the word of The Greta, and gather to pay homage in town squares shall rise up above the rising waters, borne aloft by their superiority and only the fruit of their loins shall inherit the earth!
The Child warrior princess with the eyes of the shark can silence the sinners with her steady gave.
Repent and hear the word of Saint Greta!
What I do realise is that a lot of deniers pretend not to be ... to build a barely credible platform to discredit Greta?Do you realise that a lot of the anti-Greta brigade are not deniers....
wouldn't matter if she was a school boy.What I do realise is that a lot of deniers pretend not to be ... to build a barely credible platform to discredit Greta?
Or is it that a lot of dumb fuck low education level males just can't fucking stand a female telling them anything?
How am I doing?
This must be self deprecating humour.1) Thats what they've been saying for 50 years? Longer?
2) Ok, you rethink that while your enemies watch you get weaker by the day and just pick a simple time to pick you off. (yes, they exisit even if you don't realize)
3) Theres examples in this thread of doctored evidence from Gov't organizations and you deny that? I don't think many if any people say that the planet is not changing, just saying that the doomsday shit is well, shit.
