Disasters have been with us even before the unsettled days of Chicken Little, who was so convinced that the sky was falling; she refused to believe any other explanation was even possible. Unable to locate the portion of “sky” that wacked Little upside the head, she continued chirping her own version of the truth to anyone who would listen.
Enter 16 year-old Greta Thunberg of Sweden who left school behind in order to save the planet with her dire warnings that Mother Earth – our third rock from the Sun – will meet with dire consequences thanks to humankind turning up the global heat.
Greta and 15 other children filed a carbon complaint through UNICEF at that worldwide playhouse – the United Nations – but failed to include China and India, the biggest perpetrators of all. For Greta’s efforts, she picked up the Right Livelihood Award and pocked about $103,000.
Naturally, Greta was also nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.
If Barack Obama can win for being elected, Greta should be a shoe-in for her well-coached judgmental rant at the U.N with her repetitious and scolding: “How dare you!” She sounded like someone who lost her IPhone at 2:30 am, as your breathing offended her. Greta then laments about losing her childhood and missing school in a first-degree case of international child abuse courtesy of her own parents.
Pundit Laura Ingraham weighed-in saying Greta’s presentation was “chilling” and compared her delivery to that eccentric 1984 film, “Children of the Corn,” where possessed children slowly knock-off all the adults.
Despite our planet being over 4.5 billion years old, a recent Rasmussen poll said 29 percent of Americans believe it is “at least somewhat likely that the earth will become uninhabitable and humanity will be wiped out” within the next 15 years. The hope here is that this erudite group of Americana will anchor themselves in their cellar hoarding can goods come Election Day.
Ideologues cannot help themselves, as every grievance to them is an occasion to score politically. Globalists do not care about the earth’s temperature or humankind for that matter. If they did, they would ended the onslaught of abortion. What matters most is governments need to abandon their national sovereignty to “save the earth.”
Provided nothing is accomplished to her satisfaction, Greta’s says we are “evil.”
However, carbon emissions just like Greta’s next exhaled breath is a byproduct of humanity’s existence.
As long humanity inhabits the Earth, there will always be an appetite for doom and gloom.
