Thunberg is an arrogant little bitch - she needs to be put in her place. 

But not by the President of the United States, for crissakes.

 
If she spoke to me like that, I'd tell her some old homily like "You can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar", and try to make her understand that courtesy shows basic respect, so if you are rude to me ("How dare you do nothing while entire ecosystems are vanishing and we are on the verge of the first mass extinction that ever happened while people were around in any numbers".) I am likely to be even more rude in return, and I can be very rude!

I think Shakespeare recommended treating shrewish women rudely. I thought Trump was actually nicer to her than was necessary. Smiley

Some good parenting would go a long way here.    She needs to be taught to respect people who are older and wiser than she is.

 
She's probably been told that her teachers are the font of all wisdom and therefore holds them in high regard.

Those older wiser teachers are the ones who taught her about the coming climate Apocalypse , and explained that evil Capitalism and greedy monopolists were behind it all, and that the the U.S., being the world's hotbed of Capitalism, must be destroyed in order to save humanity.

I admit, she probably knows more than Algore, but not much... Grin

Kids love hearing that their parents are wrong about something after having been bossed around by them for years.  I remember at age eight when I heard on a school film (yes, I'm that old) that smoking was bad for you and that people who smoked were like babies who need a pacifier. 

I felt really superior to my smoking parents since I had not had a single puff in my whole eight years.  I went home and lectured them about second-hand smoke until my mom started looking for the hot wheel track.

But this is the typical socialist amoral tactic of using moral people's morality against them.  Socialists draw no distinction between ridiculing a grown man and ridiculing a young girl.  But they know moral people don't like to ridicule children so they have a child say ridiculous things with impunity.

I don't either whoever is right is right. Maybe only ridicule against things you can disprove maybe if both sides weren't just like haha other side is so obviously wrong there would be more to say than just who should make fun of who.

I have no idea if global warming catastrophic is true or not but if it is than its just like the gun thing self defense. OK you are burning carbon I think it will kill me I take it away.

I mean I don't think that cause I don't know but the people who are sure than it is self defense even if they are wrong.


You blow cigarette smoke in my face I will take that away too I self defend against cancer I will rip it out of your hand and throw it on the ground.

It's like Thomas Sowell says: if you discuss with the left always ask "compared to what?". Humans living will have some kind of impact - like any creature has an impact (bugs kill whole forests in Germany) - so what is the magnitude of impact that the left would allow - if the answer is "none. You shouldnt breed" there is an indication that the socialist death cult is just that. Because looking at quality of air, water, health of forests (every year the production of timber increases everywhere - not decreases) it's getting better in those countries that have relatively free market - and the enviroment is damaged beyond repair. everywhere you have socialism.

How about magnitude of impact allowed is less than when it will kill people?

OK lets not care about animals or plants let them all die whoops we die too then.

This girl reminds me of that other Soros simp, David Hogg.

“The state must declare the child to be the most precious treasure of the people. As long as the government is perceived as working for the benefit of the children, the people will happily endure almost any curtailment of liberty and almost any deprivation.” - Adolf Hitler (from Mein Kampf)
  

Governments will always devise ways to deprive an honest man of his money or property, and claim that it's legal.

As I said: people live longer, pollution is getting less, one billion people in Asia have been risen out of poverty - there are no famines (like the same Club of Rome people predicted) anymore unless people dont have access to food because of wars.
If the past is any indication (and its the only we have) it's simply not true that people are getting killed - and the world has been warming since 1900.

The earth has been going through cycles of warming and cooling for as long as it's been around. There is good evidence of that, and no credible connection between carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and any of the cycles.
