It’s been interesting an entertaining to observe as the issue of world climate has evolved from global warming to climate change to climate catastrophe. Everyone with a brain recognizes that this is simply socialism in drag. It is a vehicle meant for wealth transfer and really nothing more. The constant drumbeat is not without consequence, however.
Children are said to be suffering, and one of the messengers of doom is another child.
Few have been more vociferous about “climate change” than Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who uses it as a disguise for her true socialist ambitions. She now professes herself to be a climate scientist. As a member of that pantheon she’s ventured into the Al Gore University of Prognostication. Not long ago she proclaimed the end of the world in 12 years.
“I think the part of it that is generational is that millennials and people, in Gen Z, and all these folks that come after us are looking up and we’re like, the world is gonna end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change,” charged AOC. “And your biggest issue, your biggest issue is how are going to pay for it? — and like this is the war, this is our World War II.”
When the laughter subsided she then asserted it was really a joke but that didn’t her career as a clairvoyant. No sir. Recently she predicted that Miami would soon find itself in Davy Jones’ locker:
“When it comes to climate change, what is not realistic is not responding with a solution on the scale of the crisis — because what’s not realistic is Miami not existing in a few years,” the New York Democrat said Wednesday at an NAACP forum. “So we need to be realistic about the problem.”
Then we come to the newest post child actor- Greta Thunberg. She is a doozy. For some reason, the UN takes this child and promotes her to world authority and she comes to NY and lays this on us
"You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words," climate activist Greta Thunberg tells the UN. "We are in the beginning of a mass extinction and all you can talk about is money and fairy tales of eternal economic growth. How dare you." https://t.co/F5Umw55Y5Y pic.twitter.com/K0WxGCeU4A

And good gosh, she and 15 other children have a filed a human rights complaint against 5 countries
Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg and 15 other children filed a complaint with the United Nations Monday alleging that five of the world’s major economies have violated their human rights by not taking adequate action to stop the unfolding climate crisis.
The complaint was filed a short time after Thunberg delivered an impassioned rebuke to world leaders at the UN Climate Action Summit.
And those countries would be?
Germany, France, Brazil, Argentina and Turkey
Neither China nor India- the two worst polluters in the world- are mentioned. I wonder why.
When Donald Trump arrived, he did not give her a second of attention, to her consternation

This is a travesty. Using children as a prop and a shield against criticism is pathetic and abusive and it gets worse. Her parents are Antifa
Let’s leave aside the absurdity of entertaining children on the world stage for a moment. They’re abusing a child with an impairment. Greta is said to have an autism-related condition known as Asperger’s Syndrome, in addition to being OCD and exhibiting selective mutism. Her jaded parents are using an impaired child as a front for their cause.
Thunberg is also a victim of the eco-Nazis:
As a key part of the talk, Thunberg describes how at the age of eleven, several years after learning about the concept of climate change for the first time, she fell into a depression and became ill. “I stopped talking. I stopped eating,” she explains. “In two months, I lost about ten kilos of weight. Later on I was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome, OCD, and selective mutism—that basically means I only speak when I think it’s necessary.”
I have some experience with Asperger’s and these kids can obsess with a issue that captures their attention. She is, however, far from alone. The eco-Nazis have fomented a new affliction called “eco-anxiety”:
A growing number of children are being treated for “eco-anxiety” as concerns surrounding climate change and its effects continue to mount.
Climate change is real and its impact is being felt in communities across much of the US, according to a federally mandated report released last year. Among the many repercussions, human health and economic stability have seen declines as the environment suffers. Just this year, the Great Barrier Reef’s condition was downgraded to “very poor” as the Amazon rainforest burns, spreading associated carbon monoxide across the globe. Greta Thunberg, 16, successfully sailed to the US to bring awareness to the issue and school-age children across the country are gearing up to walk out of school in protest of inaction.
Amidst the headlines, an increasing number of anxiety and stress cases fueled by climate change are being recorded by specialists. Caroline Hickman of the Climate Psychology Alliance and Bath University recently spoke to The Telegraph of her experiences listening to children experiencing eco-anxiety, noting that some have even been treated with psychiatric drugs.
“A lot of parents are coming into therapy asking for help with the children and it has escalated a lot this summer,” she told The Telegraph.
“The symptoms are the same [as clinical anxiety], the feelings are the same, but the cause is different. The fear is of environmental doom – that we’re all going to die.”
And this from the Telegraph
Rising numbers of children are being treated for “eco-anxiety”, experts have said, as they warn parents against “terrifying” their youngsters with talk of climate catastrophe.
Protests by groups such as Extinction Rebellion, the recent fires in the Amazon and apocalyptic warnings by the teenage activist Greta Thunberg have prompted a “tsunami” of young people seeking help.
A group of psychologists working with the University of Bath says it is receiving a growing volume of enquiries from teachers, doctors and therapists unable to cope.
The Climate Psychology Alliance (CPA) told The Daily Telegraph some children complaining of eco-anxiety have even been given psychiatric drugs.
The body is campaigning for anxiety specifically caused by fear for the future of the planet to be recognised as a psychological phenomenon.
However, they do not want it classed as a mental illness because, unlike standard anxiety, the cause of the worry is “rational”.
Greta Thunberg is a warning beacon. The eco-Nazis are scaring kids to death. Who knows how many children will require psychotropic medication consequent to the fears being drummed into them?
Then again, they’ve only got 12 years left.
Finally, let’s remember that Bernie continues to fly jets, obama bought an oceanfront house and the other day democrats held a part during which they cooked up 10,500 of those steaks they want you to forego.
They’re full of sh*t. All of them.
Related- and don’t miss this:
Its easy to scare kids, they have been doing the eco we are all going to die for years.
Lets do something, lets turn off all things that are non nessasary and require electricity at sundown, no electronics no tv no lightbulbs. It takes fossil fuels to pick them up from school they will have to walk.
Not doing anything? Take them for a tour around the house, energy efficient lightbulbs and appliances even the furnace, recycle bins, low flow toilets and showerheads. Turn off the AC or the furnace every other day. Begin taking away everything they have made with any petroluem product.
C.A. Beck was raised in a satanic cult for years.
She’s free now.
Here, she makes a comparison of her own body language back when she was being led by handlers and Greta’s now, as she, too, is being led by handlers.
Her two actual non-parent handlers are on payrolls backed primarily by George Soros.
Even saying the Green Agenda is a front for socialism doesn’t go far enough.
Socialism is a front for kleptocrats to loot the most money from the most people the quickest.
Because neither China nor India is among the 51 signatories of the Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Rights of the Child, which provides the requirement that the children’s formal complaint be considered.
The United States is the only nation on the planet that has the distinction of not having ratified the Convention on the Rights of the Child itself.
Michael Knowles makes an ass of himself. I guess he picked the right venue for it.
@Greg: Shouldnt the children demand better education so they can use technology to save their planet? Perhaps they can stop planetary climate cycles that have seen at least 7 major ice ages plus little ice ages and warming cycles.
They could learn from world wide stories of historical floods. Maybe they think we can control the sun cycles.
We could really frighten the little kids we are coming into the time of the Taurid meteor stream. Scientists have discovered a new branch of the Taurids meteor stream that could pose a major risk to Earth, with asteroids up to 1,000 feet wide flying past us every few years.
The Chicago and Peshtigo fires may have been caused by a meteor from the Taurid stream. On the same day October 8, 1871 as the Peshtigo and Chicago fires, Holland and Manistee, Michigan (across Lake Michigan from Peshtigo), and Port Huron at the southern end of Lake Huron also had major fires. None caused by a cow, or global warming.
Was she here for human rights or for the climate nonsense?
Pretty soon, the left will be able to correctly blame climate change for school shootings (unless, of course, they wise up and allow schools to be hardened).
As more and more evidence builds showing the climate zealots are lying, they become more desperate and irrational. Yesterday, they put lives in jeopardy and left a huge carbon boot-stomp print by shutting down DC traffic (note they didn’t try that today when the Secret Service will be clearing the route for the President). Their fascist tactics will become more desperate. LOTS of money, power and control are at stake.
Thanks for that the bald guy had no civil reply just began calling Knowels names. Using frightened kids and turning them against their parents what a nobel movement.
Catholics are already giving up meat once a week its called friday fish night.
The guy didnt make an ass of himself he told the truth.
Hey lets scare the kids with the Super volcano in Yellowstone! The aging nuclear power plants built on fault lines, Show them faces of death films.
Tell them about medical mistakes in hospitals. Our fragile electrical grid where a sunflare could kill 90 % of the population in a year.
The looniest of the left wants to ruin childhood now too?
Fox News has banned this man from returning to their station.
Oddly, the same day, their own Greg Gutfield said the exact same thing on The Five but has not been banned.
Truth is her parents had know she had Obsessive/Compulsive disorder as well as both Asbergers’ and selective mutism!
She has even admitted to all this.
So, 3 mental illnesses.
According to others who have a child with just the Asbergers’ she tends to be mentally rigid as well as un-open to facts that oppose her set viewpoint.
Photos of her parents both sporting their ANTIFA shirts are online.
When she wore an identical shirt, she LIED about it being “borrowed.”
Translated into English.
So, it sounds like ALL liberals have Asberger’s.
Thankfully, Trump was the world-class world-leader he is and spoke with dignity, truth, and called the sane part of the world to reject Leftist fascism.
What a good day.
The eco-kids remind of the Brown Shirts: Leftist clowns using children as vessels to spread their hateful message.
FOX News has apologized for Michael Knowles’ remarks, but Knowles remains an unrepentant jackass.
Hitler was a Vegan and Animal Lover he was into Eastern and New Age Mysticism the Nazis were very very Green Hitler wanted to Rewild Mainland Europe and North and South America the Uni-Bomber was inspired by Al Gore book Earth in the Balance James Jay Lee the man who took Hostages at the Discovery Channel was insipred by Gores fake Documentry A INCONVENT TRUTH when Linnet(Squeaky)Frome tried to assinate President Ford when ask why she did it she said I DID IT FOR THE TREES and she was a Manson Girl
Do I detect a bit of a double standard from Greg?
Is criticizing a teen (by accurately describing her) wrong?
In ALL cases?
Or just when the teen is a lefty?
I only ask because:
Recognize your own words?
Nick Sandmann can take off his hat.
But Greta cannot seem to shake her selective mutism, her obsessive/compulsive disorder or her Asberger’s level of autism.
Her parents, on top of all that’s ailing Greta, are abusing her.
@Nan G: Don’t postpone anything, no matter how trivial, waiting for an answer from Greg. Just some advice.
At least they don’t have as much egg on their face as CNN et al. Aiding and abetting a coup looks pretty bad to the American people.
Saner heads prevail, thankfully.
