Greta Thunberg is a hysterical child who should be ignored by sensible adults


Should be seen and not heard

Climate “saviour” Greta Thunberg speaking at the UN overnight made for some extremely painful watching.

It was painful not because of the apocalyptic message that she was trying to convey, but because of her childish, petulant and hysterical overreaction to the non-issue of modern-day climate change, something the planet has endured (and survived) for four and a half billion years.

It was painful because she is the product of a family, a society and a progressive media that is happy to elevate a kid with serious mental health issues to a level of exposure and publicity that will surely damage her even more.

I wonder how long it will take for any remaining sensible adults in the room to realise it is time to stop listening to a hysterical child when determining policies that will affect billions of people.

The climate strikes aren’t about climate, they are about anti-capitalism


Verging on child abuse…

Most of the deluded kids on the climate “strikes” last week didn’t have a clue why they were there.

Enthusiastically cheered on by the mainstream media, it was a cheeky bludge off school and all they were doing was trying to “save the planet” right?

No of course not. These gullible kids are being exploited by all kinds of extreme-Left and anti-capitalist groups in order to bring about a wholesale societal change, using our children as their innocent pawns.

The website for the strikes refers to the need for “climate justice” which we all know is code for wealth redistribution from rich countries to poor, and an excuse for the usurping of normal democratic processes.

And as we no longer educate children to think for themselves, you can bet this brainwashing will last decades – possibly their entire lives.

Shameful.

The Conversation becomes a lecture


The Conversation has always been heavily behind the alarmist side of the climate debate, and has featured in this blog many times in the past.

Now however it has taken the extraordinary step of banning any dissenting views on climate:

Climate change deniers, and those shamelessly peddling pseudoscience and misinformation, are perpetuating ideas that will ultimately destroy the planet. As a publisher, giving them a voice on our site contributes to a stalled public discourse.

That’s why the editorial team in Australia is implementing a zero-tolerance approach to moderating climate change deniers, and sceptics. Not only will we be removing their comments, we’ll be locking their accounts.

There is a huge range of dissenting opinion, from outright “denial” to educated and careful scientific critique, but we can be sure that The Conversation will interpret the ban as widely as possible so that nothing disrupts the desired consensus viewpoint. No doubt will be allowed.

The Catholic Church had the same idea when they sentenced Galileo to house arrest for “falsely” claiming the Earth orbited the Sun. Look how that worked out…

We really haven’t come that far since the 1600s.

Victoria: Yarra City Council advertises for “Climate Emergency Officer”


Pissing ratepayers’ money up the wall since 1994…

Applications closed on 9 August – oh noes! I would have been perfect for the job!

The City of Yarra has a proud history of environmental action and leadership. Yarra was one of the first local governments in the world to declare a climate emergency, recognising urgent action is required by all. We are now employing our first Climate Emergency Officer, to help respond to the climate emergency across the municipality and within the organisation.

Moonbattery on steroids…

🤡🌏 IPCC says: Go vegetarian to save planet 🤡🌏


Enjoy it while you can…

Australian Climate Madness says to IPCC: get fucked.

Vegetarian diets and a “sin” tax on unsustainable meat could help to limit climate change, a major new report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change says.

Reducing food waste and paying for the environmental services of nature could help the transition.

The major report looks at human impact on natural systems and how better land management could help offset the impact of rising­ greenhouse gas emissions.(source – $)

We can all look forward to a diet of weeds and insects under our future totalitarian environmentalist overlords.

London museum goes FULL WOKE with Extinction Rebellion exhibits


Hopefully these XR morons will go extinct before the rest of us

UPDATE: Read Julie Burchill on the internal cracks forming in XR here (PDF). [2 Aug – link corrected!]

Ah well, with luck they will GO BROKE too.

The V&A has decided in its infinite wisdom to celebrate the unwashed, dog-on-a-string, ecoterrorist organisation Extinction Rebellion, by showcasing a collection of its artefacts. Hopefully they will all have been washed and sterilised first so as not to constitute a health hazard…

The Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) will host two Extinction Rebellion exhibitions praising the protest movement which brought London to a standstill for creating “welcoming spaces for all”.

Banners, stamps, flags, posters and photographs will be displayed at the V&A’s Rapid Response Collecting Gallery in South Kensington this weekend to showcase the group’s “coherent and impactful visual identity” and “do-it together” attitude.

A high-vis jacket worn by a child protester is among the items on show at the second exhibition, which runs for six months from August at the V&A Museum of Childhood in Bethnal Green.

The world famous museum said it wants to show how Extinction Rebellion “engages with young families” and “creates spaces that are welcoming for all”. (source)

Welcoming for all except ordinary people trying to go about their business without being impeded by a bunch of totalitarian environmental extremists.

Utterly mad.

The Greens are complete hypocrites


Warm yourself by the heat from this burning wind turbine…

Greens: We must build wind farms to save the planet!
Also Greens: We must not build wind farms to save endangered birds!

Unprincipled to the highest degree, the Greens will relentlessly push for damaging environmental action like wind farms and massive solar arrays… as long as it’s for other people.

Total hypocrites.

Environmentalists are supposed to like wind farms. They provide renewable energy and are seen as a key part of the energy transition as Australia attempts to lower its carbon emissions to meet its Paris Agreement obligations.

But former leader of the Greens, Bob Brown, has come out swinging against a giant new wind farm planned for Robbins Island, in the north-west corner of Tasmania.

He says it is in the wrong place, will ruin the view and kill endangered birds like the Tasmanian wedge-tail eagle and the white-breasted sea eagle that live on the island, and potentially migratory birds like the swift parrot and the orange-bellied parrot that travel between Tasmania and the mainland. (source)

Today’s challenge – find any principle or consistency in the Greens’ shrill environmental posturing. Yeah, good luck with that…
