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

Somebody stating they disagree with an opinion is not evidence that they employed any thought on the matter.
 
They might simply believe stating they disagree gives an impression of being smart or perhaps they wish to signal their affiliation with others who they know disagree on the matter.
 
To indicate thought on the matter, considered counter opinions are needed, preferably offered in the absence of ad hominem attacks on the person holding the views that are being contested.


So disagreeing is much the same as agreeing yes?

This right here is why you need to post a link, you’ve pulled information from a Blog, posted on the website of a neoconservative lobby group funded by the Koch brothers and ExxonMobile.

 

Not news, a Blog.

 

 

 

Childish distractions again. Here is the same story on Yahoo news

Here it is on Breitbart

 

Of course you won't accept those links again because its not msn or cnn.

But guess what they don't cover all the news. They only cover that which promotes their bias. So it is rather difficult to talk about news when you have limited yourself to such a narrow band of information. But it does explain why you always seem so confused.

Socialism isn't going  far enough. It leaves far too much wiggle room for those horrible backward peasants to do things that the self-appointed elites have decided are harmful or "problematic".

 

That's why prominent Left activists are forever fantasizing about the world being put "on a war footing", and the masses "mobilized" as they supposedly were for World War II.

 

You have to wonder about the characters of people who constantly dream about wielding that level of power and control over other people's lives.

Actually you have to wonder about those who having lost the argument about renewable energy now resort to caricatures and personal vilification.

I made a post just above in which I explained everything.
Getting developing nations into line will is phase 2. I think we all agree they need to be kept under reasonable control. You agree on that, right? Right?
Fail to answer, lose the argument.


Wrong.

I don’t agree developing countries should be “...kept under reasonable control.”

Who are you to decide what’s best for another country?

Are you keeping track? Are you sure it was 500 climate scientists? Or just 500 people from various professions? Not all of them even being scientists. Here's a link from a group that backed the petition. 

https://www.aei.org/carpe-diem/there-is-no-climate-emergency-say-500-experts-in-letter-to-the-united-nations/

So, no. It wasn't 500 climate scientists.

 

I will allow that they did say experts.

Here is the beginning of the list of signatories. I have only included those from Belgium, but I can get you all 500 if you wish to be pedantic.

SCIENTISTS AND PROFESSIONALS FROM BELGIUM

1. Rob Lemeire, Publicist on Environmental and Climate Issues, ECD Ambassador

2. Eric Blondeel, retired Civil Engineer.

3. Emiel van Broekhoven, Emeritus Professor of Economics, University of Antwerp

4. Christophe de Brouwer, MD, Honorary Professor of Environmental and Industrial Toxicology, Former President of the School of Public Health at the Université Libre de Bruxelles

5. Christian Dierick, Lead Expert, Energy Technology Solutions

6. Ferdinand Engelbeen, Former chemical process automation engineer, Akzo Nobel Chemicals

7. Samuel Furfari, Professor of Energy Geopolitics at the Free University of Brussels

8. Georges Geuskens, Emertitus Professor of Chemistry, Free University of Brussels and Expert Publicist on Climate Science

9. Drieu Godefridi, PhD in Law, author of several books

10. Jan Jacobs, Science Journalist Specializing in Climate and Energy Transition

11. Raymond Koch, Retired Research director at Lab. Plasma Physics, RMA Brussels and Fellow Lecturer at UMons.

12. Henri A. Masson, Emeritus Professor Dynamic System Analysis and Data Mining, University of Antwerp

13. Ferdinand Meeus, Retired Research Scientist, IPCC expert Reviewer AR6

14. Jean Meeus, Retired Meteorologist, Brussels Airport, Author of the Best Seller Astronomical Algorithms

And we've seen young schoolgirls being used as propaganda pawns by some very unsavory people in the 20th century.

And in this century, the 21st,  we've seen some ad hominem attacks unbacked by evidence. From parties who have lost the scientific and economic wars and now resort to scurrilous attacks. Because you don't need evidence to do that.

"Nearly all publishing climate scientists (97–98%[1]) support the consensus on anthropogenic climate change....The level of consensus correlates with expertise in climate science".
 - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_scientists_who_disagree_with_the_scientific_consensus_on_global_warming


Yes, most everyone making a living off publishing global warming agree.

So what percentage of “science” are people making a living publishing global warming papers?

That you guys regurgitate this same lie over and over suggests you actually believe it.

I have six air conditioners in my home, and if my lot was covered entirely with solar panels it would not run one of them.

Lost the argument, hilarious.

And here's the 1st paragraph from that Breitbart article:

"More than 500 scientists and professionals in climate and related fields have sent a “European Climate Declaration” to the Secretary-General of the United Nations asking for a long-overdue, high-level, open debate on climate change."

https://www.breitbart.com/environment/2019/09/24/500-scientists-write-u-n-there-is-no-climate-emergency/

Which is why links should be included. So that overzealous posters don't misrepresent what they claim to have read.

Yes of course, that is true. But my complaint is that left side of the debate will always seize upon the the credibility of the site and entirely disregard the point of the post. Even if it is just hot linked there and its source is NASA or the BBC. It is a tactic that shows great insincerity towards listening in any way to what is being said. Just adds to the polarization.

I should not have said they were all scientists I'll own that. Most of them have careers directly related to climate science though. Some of them are engineers and various other PhD's and some lawyers and authors are in there. It's not like they got signatures at a BBQ.

In fact, very few are climatologists. Here's a link to someone who did their own private tally of the qualifications of the cosigners.

"I categorized all 506 signatories according to their self-identified field of expertise. Only 10 identified as climate scientists, and 4 identified as meteorologists... Signatories in totally unrelated academic fields (for example, psychology, philosophy, archaeology, and law) outnumbered climate scientists by two to one."

He goes on to say that the 2 biggest groups were geologists at 19% and engineers at 21%.  

So why should we pay any attention to this petition?

You mean like when overzealous climate change alarmists regurgitate the 97% lie?

That kind of misrepresentation?

 

Nonsense.You make assertions but you don't back them up with links.

You should have read the Yahoo article, it is not supporting your argument.

 

And Breitbart - enough said!
