World’s leaders turn on Greta Thunberg after she sues France & Germany

That’s what you may get for years of government climate fearmongering, followed by trying to cosy up to the narrow-minded junior climate fanatics it has generated. These same governments are now reaping what they sowed, and they don’t like it. Bad luck.

National leaders have rebuked Greta Thunberg after the climate campaigner criticised their inaction and started a legal challenge against France and Germany’s environmental policies, reports The Times (via The GWPF).

President Macron and Angela Merkel, who had both previously endorsed Ms Thunberg’s Fridays for Future school strike movement, were stung into reacting to what one French minister termed her “despair . . . verging on hatred”.

Scott Morrison, 51, the prime minister of Australia and a fossil fuels enthusiast, also accused her of stirring up “needless anxiety” among his country’s children.

Ms Thunberg, 16, rose to global celebrity in the space of 12 months after a solitary protest outside parliament before last year’s general election in Sweden.

Last Friday she mobilised an estimated four million demonstrators in more than 100 countries to join protests after sailing across the Atlantic to address a UN climate summit in New York.

In an uncompromising speech she told the world’s politicians that they had “stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words”. She accused governments of betraying young people. “You are not mature enough to tell it like it is,” she said. “You are failing us.”

She joined 15 other child protesters in filing a formal complaint to the UN that nations including Brazil, Germany, Turkey and France had violated international children’s rights by failing to take sufficiently bold measures to reduce carbon emissions.

This step appears to have provoked some governments that might otherwise have counted themselves among her allies.

    Electric car sales sinking in China. Maybe a stern Nordic pep talk is required 😎

    WSJ: Another Shocker From China’s ‘Tesla Killer’

    Chinese electric vehicle maker NIO is losing money on every car it sells and will soon need to raise more cash

    China’s answer to Tesla is in the breakdown lane.

    The company, New York-listed electric-vehicle maker NIO Inc., said it lost $483 million last quarter, a 25% greater loss than the previous quarter.

    Pleased to note that having gobbled up all those potential votes Greta has generated these politicians are now suffering indigestion. Her politics are a toxic brew as they will eventually find out if they don’t rein in the activities of the Extinction Rebellion.

    No. I do not propose water cannon et al. but I do ask that these politicians start being honest about what is possible to be achieved and stop spinelessly going along with the current hysteria being whipped up by these people.

    Presumably her handlers thought that since her Marxist message had gone down well at the UN they could up the up the stakes by pushing a couple of like minded countries of the EU.

    We should also remember that a relative of the father was Svante Arrhenius the founder of the global warming scam with his model of the greenhouse effect.

    Ha ha ha ha ha ROFL …. Make my day Tell me its true and not a BBC report !

    I’ve been watching you deniers with your empty words and I have drawn a line in the sand. If your faction doesn’t start with real action traction, I’m going to…. I’m going to…..I’m going to puff my cheeks out REALLY BIG.

    Careful now, Geoff 😎

    Something for climate snowflakes to ponder…

    So who’s funding this action?

    For a Great Carbon Climatic Lie they’ve taken children as human shields, with that insane doll Greta Thunberg in the forefront…

    She perfectly shows, why women should be silent and not speak publicly, because they are too easily misused for insane and wrong lies by powerful men behind them, and they (women) have not enough understanding to discern, how wrong and dangerous they are…

    But they also used her as an instance of that harlot on the beast, because Greta is a harlot of evil oligarchs riding on a Climatic Lie beast, but that one in revelation is instead a collective phenomenon of jeuury on the Z10n beast, having written on forehead “Taalemud Babylon the book, mother of harlots and abominations of the Earth”, and it’s not any simple doll, even if she plays an abominable harlot of the wrong men…

    It’s somehow fair it stabbed foremost France Macron and others, who peddled that Great Carbon Climatic Lie, they deserve to reap what they’ve planted. Others, who as Trump fairly knew and claimed it’s a lie from the beginning, can now fairly state, that an insane doll of evil oligarchs will not dictate responsible state policies, and let her whine…

    Otherwise, Carbon really is a green-house gas, because all green nature loves CO2 and the more the better, it is a favourite gas of all green nature.
    Nature loves CO2, and nature loves warming – why do you think they grow plants in artificial green-houses? Only problem is with a drought, and drought does not depend on 1-2°C warming at all. And both warming and drought are not related to CO2 at all, but to desert sands and forest-fire soot aerosols,
    these are problems, but not a clean industrial or natural CO2… And also the warming may be related to cirrus clouds, produced among else by air travel.

    But these children’s climatic protests are incredibly evil, much more evil than you understood yet.
    There really is a danger of our extinction looming above us, which is 5G network and radiation poisoning, and foremost of our children (thinner skin). And instead of real protests against 5G genocide they spawned these fake climatic nonsenses (FFF), which are societal vaccination against real environmental protests, since everyone will now ignore any protests, supposing they are all just as insane as that climate lie.

    So this Greta movement will cause our Extinction by 5G genocide, because they prevented any real protests at the time, when they were needed for our survival.
    So I wish Greta and her minions the radiation poisoning skin cancer from 5G which she deserves, but not soon enough, so that she can feel the pain of many children dying before her for her deeds !

    These fake protests are not fun at all, they are incredibly evil, preventing our protection against real extinction by 5G genocide, and they are deeply related behind the scenes.

  13. Do not know how to post the video in this https://www.michaelsmithnews.com/2019/09/greta-the-climate-child-attempts-to-return-home-with-thomas-cook.html which I believe was made in Holland and posted on twitter. I and many others think it is very funny. I like the bit at the end where the chap says I will cut off your pony tail.
    BTW I am sure those in UK know about the demise of Thomas Cook which was a travel company that bought too many planes and paid its executives too much. I was told that when the door on the plane is opened the “Cook” becomes “Cock”

    oldbrew:
    The reference in Heller’s video is slightly unnecessary. The SMH (Sydney Morning Herald) Australia’s oldest newspaper has been sold off because revenue collapsed. It is a joke, and has been for years, pandering to ABC viewers (that’s the Australian version of the BBC) and precious few others. They fell completely for the Fijian Prime Minister talking about Fiji going underwater. I lived in Fiji for 9 months and I never noticed that possibility, partly from the mountains there.

    And I note that the Maldives are building 6 new airports before the end of this year.

    Graeme – yes, the dire Maldives predictions of climate alarmists have proved as hopeless as many of the others. But they keep churning them out to try and squeeze a bit more fear out of their credulous followers. It’s just what they do.
