Delingpole: Doom Pixie Greta Thunberg spurned AGAIN by Nobel Prize

Posted: October 11, 2020 by oldbrew in alarmism, climate, opinion


The world has something far more pressing to be miserable about, this time for good reasons, and attention-hungry climate doomsters hate that.

For a second year running Greta Thunberg has failed to win the Nobel Peace Prize, notes James Delingpole @ Breitbart.

This year she was beaten by the UN World Food Program.

In 2019 she was beaten by Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed as his reward for securing peace with neighbouring Eritrea.

Perhaps the Nobel prize committee has noticed something increasingly apparent to the rest of us: that the world has long since reached Peak Greta; the Doom Pixie has delighted us all quite enough.

Part of Thunberg’s problem may be that her cause has been superseded by that of Chinese coronavirus.

Earlier in the pandemic, Thunberg made a bid for ongoing relevance by co-authoring an angry letter to European Union leaders, demanding that climate be taken seriously as coronavirus.

It screeched:

The last few months the world has watched with horror how the COVID-19 pandemic has hit people all over the globe. During this tragedy, we are seeing how many – not all – world leaders and people around the world stepped up and acted for the greater good of society.

It is now clearer than ever that the climate crisis has never once been treated as a crisis, neither from the politicians, media, business, nor finance.

The letter’s petulant tone is an indication of the growing frustration among climate activists that their thunder has been stolen by COVID-19.

    The rejection couldn’t have happened to a better person (How Dare They!)

    Perhaps the Committee were influenced by their reading?

    The doom goblin, not pixie. Trump should get next year’s Nobel.

    Some light reading for ill-informed climate doomsters:

    NEW BOOK – CLIMATE CHANGE: THE FACTS 2020

    Climate Change: The Facts 2020 is the definitive guide to the latest international research and analysis on climate change science and policy. Twenty experts in their field from across five countries have written original contributions on the key issues of scientific, political, and public debate about climate change.

    Contributors include Dr John Abbot, Dr Susan Crockford, Dr Bella d’Abrera, Scott Hargreaves, Professor Aynsley Kellow, Donna Laframboise, Professor Richard Lindzen, Dr Jennifer Marohasy, Jo Nova, Dr Peter Ridd, and Dr Roy Spencer.

    ​Some of the issues addressed in chapters in Climate Change: The Facts 2020 include:

    — the extent and variability of sea level change
    — the historical record of temperature and ice coverage in the Antarctic
    — the impact of climate change on polar bear populations
    — the manipulation of temperature data by the Bureau of Meteorology
    — whether the Australian bushfires 2019-20 were in fact ‘unprecedented’; and
    — the prevalence of ‘noble cause’ corruption in climate science.

    ​Dr Jennifer Marohasy, editor of Climate Change: The Facts 2020 and Senior Fellow at the IPA said: “The contributors to Climate Change: The Facts 2020 don’t necessarily agree on the extent that recent global warming may be affected by human activity – but they all share the perspective that any such warming is subject to cycles, and is not unusual in its rate or magnitude, and is not catastrophic.”

    “If anything about the climate is unprecedented it is the notion that something as complex as climate science can be ‘settled’. It is better to have questions that cannot be answered than answers that cannot be questioned.”
