Greta Thunberg

Wow. Absolute madness.

Who gave this 16 year old girl a global microphone?

All of the climate alarmists have been wrong for hundreds of years. But maybe this 16 year old climate alarmist will be right!

The Swiss marked the disappearance of a glacier there this week with a funeral.

An entire glacier - gone.

But - nothing to see! Move along, please.

Carry on - all you high IQ climate change deniers. An entire pack of very stable geniuses. Just like their daft president, Donald!

What? An entire iceberg? GONE?!

What are we going to do? Resort to cannibalism? That’s what your favorite alarmists believe.

Let’s ban farting!

Maybe we’ll have another ice age! The earth is pretty resilient in case you were wondering. It’s been hit by meteors and all.

The United Nations, that's who.

Listen, I look at your posts with the same kind of benevolence I'd offer Otis Campbell wandering the streets of Mayberry. That of a harmless enough garden-variety village idiot, but you can piss right off saying jack about a girl who has obviously accomplished more in her 16 years of life than any half-baked comment I've seen limping out of your keyboard.

Check yourself, dipshit. I'm not a big fan of putting folks with divergent opinions in the 'ignore' vault. Not my style, but after that monumentally brain-dead comment, you're careening for a spot in the forum morgue. Capeesh?

I don't doubt that man is contributing to an acceleration of increasing global temperatures. But let's call the climate change movement what it is - an anti-capitalist movement bent on weakening the United States, and the following quote from Greta, demonstrates this perfectly:
We are in the beginning of the mass extinction and all you can talk about is money and fairytales of eternal economic growth. How dare you?
The planet will be fine, with or without government intervention. I firmly believe that the big equalizer will come from outer space, either in the form of a massive solar flare, or less likely, in the form of a giant meteor, that sends us back to the stone age. And I believe that will happen sometime in the next 150 years. Given our increasing dependence on technology, that poses a far larger threat to humanity than does climate change, IMO.

Wow. Did the price for cigarettes go up recently? Because something has your panties in a knot. Maybe there’s a new tax on face tattoos that has you all discombobulated.

You’ll listen to a 16 year old girl literally whining and crying about a topic she has no idea about. The strategy from the ignorant is not to produce facts. The strategy is carting out teens in hopes of gaining sympathy and if someone challenges their ignorant speech, the reaction is always, “Leave them alone! They’re just children! Hope DARE you pick on CHILDREN!!!”

You tried to intimidate me by giving me an ultimatum. Do yourself a favor, save yourself some time, and ignore me altogether. You’re a blind person heading headlong off a cliff and telling others, “Follow me! I know the way!”

Let’s pretend the problem you believe in exists. Even if that were true, using recyclable bags, farting less, and turning thermostats down to 65 would not amount to any positive impact. So rather than trying to control other people’s lives, let’s enjoy the 30 minutes we have left on this earth before we self-combust as your ignorant heroes are telling you.

“Mass extinction”?

There have never been more people living on planet earth.

Somebody get this 16 year old girl some counting blocks!

I admired how she put in place that arrogantly smirking republican congressman who was questioning her. He wasn’t expecting her to smash his smug face with his very own BS. Boomerang!

And a little child shall lead them.

She’s such an angry child. I hope she gets help for that.

Miss Anger Issues lives in the healthiest, wealthiest, safest, and most peaceful time in human history. Once she discovers that fact she’s going to be ticked!

Total douche. What does a 16 year old know!? She needs to get off her high horse and her holier than thou attitude.

If liberals can’t fool adults into this sky-is-falling hysteria, they’ll recruit kids!

She’s a walking definition of hypocrisy and ignorance.

If she's worried about the glaciers melting then she can go make some fucking ice cubes! It was never meant to be eternal. It does eventually melt. She and people like her seem to not think about that.

It’s just an attempt to force individuals to surrender to bigger governments.

Agreed. Government is big enough as it is. I don't want them in my life than necessary. This whole climate change issue is just another way to have more government and taxation in our lives.
