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

You answered your own question. It's the hottest thread around here, tends to pull in attention. Dead boring in the Thai news section. 

 

I think I'll join your guess, she's 16, people change when they get to their 20's and we should be dead because of climate change by then anyway, if the CO2 theory proves to be true. No idea to which direction she'll go, but dear flying spaghetti monster, please don't let it be into militant feminism. I'm having nightmares just thinking about that. Since she's Swedish chances are good, though.

i dont know if it counts, but one of our very own

climate specialist here on tvf foresee

That the world would be full of birds, bees and flowers for her generation and generations to come, perhaps. These things can no longer be taken for granted. Populations of all of them have plumetted in just a few years. Mock if you will, but Nature is the touchstone of all meaning. It is rapidly being stripped out of life by technology. This is the existential threat.

I agree. All caused by overpopulation and human greed. Not proven that caused by rising CO2 levels.

 

Mock? When someone's mother claims that their daughter can see CO2 in the air, they lay themselves open to mockery.

Don't believe that? Google it.

The real question, for me, is why some are apparently obsessed with her.

IMO that's simple. She's put herself up as a "leader" in the climate change debate, addressing the grown ups in the UN, and having a little rant about her dreams. 

Anyone putting themselves in such a position should expect some stick.

IMO no one is obsessed with her, but she's a convenient target for now, and she'll probably be yesterday's news in a while.

Guess we have a different take on what counts as "stick" and what amounts to "obsessing". Given many of the comments on this topic, I think you either didn't bother reading, or glossing over some parts. 60 pages is a wee bit more than the standard "stick" for tvf.

LOL. More pages for the thread about believing in God. 60 pages is probably normal for this sort of subject. 

There isn't much of interest going on these days, apparently, and it beats asking where the best burger in Pattaya is.

Yeah, sixty pages and we’re getting into Trump and Brexit obsession. Once we break a hundred we’ll be getting close to duel-pricing....

I did previously mention that maybe she just likes to stir <deleted> up. Would be the obvious answer, she's just doing it fot the sake of doing it, instead of trying to point out the real culprits.

Doesn't she just do what her handlers tell her to? A 16 year old girl doesn't get to address that U N on her own merits. She has to have powerful backers with an agenda. Carbon fiber yachts are not cheap.

I said nothing of their data being false, nor did I claim they were wrong.

Again, if you had a real argument, you would not resort to making stuff up.
 

 

Not much. Here's what you wrote:

 

"If the IPCC disagreed they’d all be looking for work. They (like the 97%) have a vested interest."

 

So their research isn't false but their the results of their research are due to having " a vested interest." and not based on ascertaining the facts?

Who are you kidding? Unless you can explain why your statement doesn't accuse them of dishonesty, what other explanation can there be for your contention?

Could you name these handlers and powerful backers?
