Science Greta Thunberg Megathread - 16 year old climate and environmental activist with Asperger’s

She's a perfect example of millennial thinking.

She has victim credentials a priori because she's female and a child, which according to bastard-Marxist sophistry lends weight to her rhetoric (no matter how specious). The sentiments of her espousals are agreeable enough, but she has absolutely no solutions (and nor do her supporters) because they believe their emotional distress at reading clickbate doomsday articles constitutes an argument, when it's literally "I don't like this; someone else has to fix it".

The energy is also misdirected. The cultures in which her theatrics have actually had an effect are not substantially culpable for the problems, except for the ultra-wealthy who don't really come under fire anyway because none of the plebeians sperging about the climate do any research or any reasoning. Anybody smart enough to actually do these things is also smart enough either to profit from exploitation of the planet (and therefore have a vested interest in clouding and obfuscating dialogue about it) or, like us in this thread, smart enough to get on with our lives, because we know that only bloated capitalist machines (and countries flatly inhospitable to environmentalist thinking, like China) hold the reins here. You or I could live out our days planting trees and nursing endangered animals, and it wouldn't make any difference.

This is, I believe, the driving force behind the idiot passion of the Thunberg kind, and it goes beyond environmentalism. Young people are growing up to find themselves in a woke matrix controlled by almost-fascistic capitalism, where most Westerners are kept in a Plato's cave by soulless trend-whoring corporations and 1984-style monitoring by Google et al. The damage is so bad that the worst victims actually propagate the goals of their abuser, as in "cancel culture"; divesting cultural figures of their power with hysterical and puritan manifesti (political ambush which Paglia calls "the nadir of Marxism") accusing them of sinning against the invisible god of global capitalism, to which the woke zealot has surrendered all intellectual autonomy. The millennial's fixation on rhetorical victimhood may stem from their existential gut feelings of being exploited by ultra-powerful social engineers.

Greta Thunberg is a vengeful spirit of young Westerners who have been abused by their elders. Her anger is righteous, but she is attacking a symptom, not a cause, and not even attacking it effectively. The French considered themselves eminently enlightened and civilised, as the Western bourgeoisie does now. But when the ordinary citizens realised they were being preyed upon by the wealthy, they beheaded them in the streets. I think there will be bloodshed in the coming decades.

Based Talking Cat about CO2 and how we need it. Do trees get the right to yell "How dare you? You have robbed me of my childhood" to Greta?

Climatologist talking about the need for CO2.

Pre-woke era, articles on trees/plants NEEDING more Co2 were plentiful in scientific lit, now you have "science beacons" like Mashable and NYT squeaking about the world's plants not needing more Co2. Really is quite strange.

Get on that airplane you nordic smurf.

Found this article very concerning.
Anger as academics say Greta, 16, ‘not sexy enough’
LEADING French academics have been criticised for complaining 16-year-old climate campaigner Greta Thunberg is not sexy enough.

Bernard Pivot, 84, president of the Goncourt Academy — which awards France’s top literary prize — was branded a ‘fat misogynist pig’ after comparing the teenager to the Swedish girls he pursued in his youth.

‘In my generation, boys would run after les petites Suédoises, they had a reputation for being less stuck-up than French girls,’ he tweeted. ‘But I can imagine adolescent me being scared stiff of Greta Thunberg.’

Fellow intellectual, philosopher Michel Onfray, 60, said Ms Thunberg ‘makes you think of those silicon dolls heralding the end of humanity’.

He added: ‘She has the face, age, sex and body of a cyborg of the third millennium, her envelope is neutral, she is, alas, where mankind is heading.’



Another philosopher Pascal Bruckner, 70, accused the teenager of having a ‘scary face’ and ‘flaunting her autism like a title of nobility’.

Last night, TV producer and women’s issues campaigner Yasmina Bennani hit back, saying: ‘Luckily, you are a species on the way to extinction.’

What is it with criticising the 500 year old climate loli who looks 10 years old, and being a pedophile?

They also have idiot batshit obsessions with things like GMOs that get them to push idiotic and sometimes even deadly policies. Like golden rice, a rice engineered to have vitamin A, literally can wipe out childhood blindness from vitamin A deficiency and hundreds of thousands of deaths on top of that, but they're against it because "muh GMO frankenfood" lunacy.
This is why i don't get the fucking enviromentalists. GMO crops have allowed us to create hardier crops that can be planted in harsher climates, therefore allowing the use of more arable soil and reducing the need for exports in certain countries. Like in Russia where hardier wheath crops allowed it to be harvested further north. But hey, better to have scrarcity that may lead to a famine than having GMOs, am i rite?

Also, newspapers around here are already gawking that Greta is coming to Spain by boat to save climate. I can't believe this hobgoblin has decided to get her ass over here by sea. She will probably make landing in the north west and then she will have to get her ass to Madrid to spout her bullshit, something the government will most likely agree on since they are desperate for people to not notice unemployment numbers. But god knows since spanish elections are the 10th this month.

The socialists claim they want equal footing for all but they start with the fallacious presumption that the cushy standard of comfort and "relatively" modest excess in their own lives is that standard, they don't want to give it up but they also don't want to engage the overwhelming evidence that free equality the way they want it can't be obtained for 8 billion people without them sacrificing a lot of their creature comforts. So they go along with anything that will starve and destroy true poor people so long as their own in-group is untouched enough that their bubble of fantasy remains intact. They willingly become propagators of inequality directly in the service of obtaining social credit for claiming to serve the opposite goal.

When you see it like that then you understand why they comnstantly keep the people that are far worse than them constantly on their toes and wary of others. It's much better to keep them afraid and mistrusting each other than allowing them to collectively notice that the higher ups lied and that they just wanted to take shit for themselves.

You always need a boogeyman or two to keep the undesirables distracted and confused.

Yep. Just as the rich elites running the parties and the media have a vested interest in fanning the flames of racism so that non-rich people are attacking their differently colored neighbors rather than them, so too do the modest middle class have a vested interest in keeping the truly poor and impoverished angry at bogeymen so that the spotlight doesn't fall on their own greed and powerlust. "Divide and conquer" occurs at all iterations of the fractal.

It's at this point where the phrase "If voting changed anything it would be illegal" makes a lot of sense.

This. My mother is a retired nurse who likes to rail about the evils of big pharma and GMOs. Sometimes she actually makes good points, other times its pure bullshit. Told her about golden rice and she still went on about safety testing it and how they're gonna trade blindness for cancer and autism.

It also explains why most self-proclaimed socialists in the west are by and large a bunch of well-off urbanite/suburbanite honkies that claim till they're blue in the face that they and only they are the proletariat while they treat the actual proletariat in the urban and rural areas with the assertion that they don't even exist at best to complete and open contempt at worst

Socialists today care more about making people that have a better hand at life than theirs suffer than making life better for those less fortunate than them

Opioid-addict Kermit Hitler said it best: socialism isn't about compassion for the poor, it's about resentment and jealously for those who have more. It's no different than those behavior tests where a monkey is happy to receive crackers as a treat, until he sees the next monkey receiving tasty grapes and then he flies into a jealous rage the next time he's offered crackers. Obviously wanting grapes is the same as deserving grapes, right? And yet watch how charitable he suddenly feels if another monkey who has no treat comes and asks to share the crackers.

Oh yeah, there was a lot of brouhaha when the article was posted back in April. A real shame it doesn't seem to have been translated to English because it was pretty funny (the title when translated to English means "Greta Thunberg or the dangerous propaganda of climate infantilism").
