I just listened to Greta Thunberg’s diatribe in Edmonton and it absolutely amazes me that this 16-year-old juvenile is being widely accepted as the Messiah of Climate Change when, like all the others, they don’t understand the premise. It’s not that trying to reduce the world’s CO2 levels is a bad thing; it’s more of why don’t you concentrate on the actual locations where CO2 levels are over the top
What is she doing in Canada (we’re a CO2 sponge)? Also, when expounding on your beliefs, why don’t you mention the fact oil products and oil byproducts are not anywhere near a point where other “cleaner manufacturing” can replace said products. That, in my mind, would be a major factor in the process. This entire movement has no clue what the term “in moderation” means! This little girl’s plea is unrealistic and I’m sure her “handlers” don’t give a darn about that. Like Al Gore’s campaign, this is nothing but a money maker for the “organizers”! I’d love to see that list of backers.
Lastly, I saw her mode of transport getting up here (Tesla)! I wonder if she’s swimming home or taking an airplane?
