Greta Thunberg

Recommended Posts

She has apparently gone full blown Marxist now -

"That action must be powerful and wide-ranging. After all, the climate crisis is not just about the environment. It is a crisis of human rights, of justice, and of political will. Colonial, racist, and patriarchal systems of oppression have created and fueled it. We need to dismantle them all. Our political leaders can no longer shirk their responsibilities."

From what I've read about Greta in terms of her environmental concerns. She wants -
No more building any buildings - of any description.  Universal veganism. All fossil fuels to remain in the ground, where she says they belong. Don't buy or wear any new clothes and to remain within planetary boundaries.

I do wonder what it is about Ms Thunberg that people dislike so much. 

Is it her because she had the courage to put herself in the firing line, or is the message that she is delivering.

Personally I admire her and the environmentalists who are telling people what they must hear for the benefit of this and future generations.

Ok. Slightly surprised that you’re articulating that but yep I basically agree.  
Im a technology optimist but think the eco background is needed to stimulate innovative thinking so expect it to be a lot better than she articulates. 
But the infamous Overton Window still needs moving to increase renewable investment etc so innovative ideas can replace old economy CO2 intensive technology. Greta is helping that occur for all the anger that generates with the doubters. ... and that cartoon is a wonderful example of scientific illiteracy. Wonder where it came from?
