H.L. Mencken once observed that the entire aim of politics is to keep the populace in a state of alarm by menacing it with imaginary hobgoblins. AOC, and Thunberg in Davos reveal that little has changed.
Teenage environmentalist Thunberg addressed the World Economic Forum (WEF) and once again admonished western nations, “Our house is still on fire. Your inaction is fueling the flames by the hour. We are still telling you to panic, and to act as if you loved your children above all else…We don’t want these things done in 2050, 2030, or even 2021. We want this done now.”
“60% of CO2 emissions since Greta Thunberg was born is attributable to China… but nobody talks about that. They talk as if its somehow Europeans and Americans who are going to fix this problem… which is frustrating because it doesn’t get to the heart of the matter…If you’re serious about slowing CO2 emissions and temperatures rising it has to be China and India you constrain…while Greta travels to New York and Davos, I don’t see her in Beijing or Delhi.” — Niall Ferguson, from Summit News report.
The majority of pollution is coming from Asia and Africa. Why ignore them unless you are anti-West, and there is actually another agenda.
In Davos, Thunberg called for a “zero emissions” economy, beginning right now. Which is pure insanity, and effectively means the end of civilization. But she speaks with passion, so that means we must all take her suggestions incredibly seriously. Not.
She actually said this:
Obviously, Africa, India and China will continue to use fossil fuels to build and strengthen their countries, no matter how many tantrums Greta continues to have.
At the end of the tour of Charlie’s Chocolate Factory, Veruca was the third to leave, with both her and her father are covered in garbage. When Veruca sees the Great Glass Elevator, she demands her dad buy one for her, in which her father responds that she was getting nothing but a bath. Not only did he stop giving her anything she wants, Rupert Salt realized that they had been constantly spoiling their daughter. Veruca then pouts, with her father giving her an angry glare.
When will we start acting Mr. Salt and be the adults in the room?
