Not the hero you need but the hero you deserve!
It amazes me how mad people can get about a girl who is politically active... So much hate and bullying instead of just ignoring her.
It's not the fact that she's politically active. It's because she is going around telling people how to live while polluting a LOT! more than i. The fact that her parents and some Indian they hired write her speeches and Facebook posts.
And climate change isn't even proven to be man made nor a threat to humanity.
Is it a threat? It is disruptive, and that is a threat. Sure, maybe we can get used to the new climate (we are clever humans after all) but it will be costly, and it will delay progress by diverting resources.
I don't think the premise of controlling or preventing climate change is a bad one. We have the power and technology to do so - and the benefit of it should be clear (prevent major global disruptions).
As for Greta - I personally can't stand her condescension and puppetry.
I agree that it would be better to keep the climate as it is now, but unlike the mainstream media imply 98% dosen't agree that the earth is warming drastically nor man made they simply agree that the earth is warming up some more than others.
Some scientists believe we are at the end of an Ice age and that's why the earth is warming, so there simply isn't enough proof to say that we can even control it.
Of cause Co2 is a greenhouse gas and will heat the earth a bit but i and some of the scientists agree that it's an insignificant amount.
But i still believe we are using a lot more resources than necessary, since we only have a finite amount of everything on earth, i'm a very big opponent to planned obsolescence, and i simply can't stand the hysteria of (most) "climate activists" , since they go around and demand muh solar and wind power. Even though nuclear power is a lot greener when you think in Co2 emissions while being cheaper and more reliable especially with Thorium reactors, which is an area that needs a lot of further research. The only real problem with nuclear power is the waste but again with Thorium that would be an insignificant amount.
Its great! Like any market now it will be cheap and pleasantly empty.... Corona beer is on sale for some time now... great life
