You go girl hold their feet to the fire make them face what’s happening so all of us can start making responsible changes and grow into a more sustainable world I’m proud of you kiddo!

And first of all make her shut up. 

Small point that needs clarifying. It was Greta's parents that filled her head with confusion, hate and panic, ergo they "stole her dreams". Textbook child abuse really. When she gets bored of this cl

On this thread all I’ve seen is unrestrained vitriol directed towards a 16 year old girl, references to discredited tabloid TV documentaries, and speculative whataboutisms like your 50/50 comment. 

 

At every stage in history you have your self interested parties, your luddites, your self interested luddites. 

 

Add to this to the flat earthers, anti-vaxxers, conspiracy theorists and those culture warriors who for them this issue is simply another front line in the war against those pinko facist communist lesbian socialists who have simply made it all up.

 

At any point in history where momentous change was on society, women’s rights, civil rights in the US, anti-segregation, slavery - you name it, anything that threatened the world view of the status quo you’d have the same types out and ranting against it. 

 

If this was a debate 100 years ago about introducing steam trains you blokes would be out on force penning letters to the editor talking up the horse and buggy industry and bemoaning this new fangled work of the devil. 

 

This debate is no different as we can see on this thread and this picture basically sums it up.

 

You forgot to mention those who base their entire argument on a mathematical model and refuse to admit that the earth's climate has changed erratically during its entire life due to a myriad of factors that no one fully understands?

 

One thing I've noticed is that the average climate alarmist tend to believe that some debaters - the ones they refer to as "climate deniers" - deny that the climate is changing. I don't think they deny that at all. Personally, I think they make a rather good argument when they point out that CO2 levels have been as high as 4,000ppm (compared to the 400ppm we're heading towards) and that big forests once grew on the continent of Antarctica. Which for the context of this debate is quite interesting given the number of cars and factories at the time in question. But I guess that's just a conspiracy theory.

Nuclear energy too slow, too expensive to save climate: report

Nuclear power is losing ground to renewables in terms of both cost and capacity as its reactors are increasingly seen as less economical and slower to reverse carbon emissions, an industry report said.

In mid-2019, new wind and solar generators competed efficiently against even existing nuclear power plants in cost terms, and grew generating capacity faster than any other power type, the annual World Nuclear Industry Status Report (WNISR) showed.

If the greens hadn't blocked the research, Melissa & Bill would be building traveling wave reactors in a few years. They want the bug breakfasts. The worst evironmental catatrophe are the "environmental" parties.

If the angry alarmist Thunberg were an adolescent boy he would be dismissed for his anger, aggression and hostility. But she gets away with it because shes a girl.

That's modern equality for you.
