Skip to comments.Greta Thunberg’s Not-So-Little Carbon Footprint
Posted on 10/07/2019 7:32:07 AM PDT by bananaman22
If youve heard of the phrase carbon footprint chances are, youve heard of Greta Thunberg. The impassioned 16-year-old climate activist is now the subject of countless news articles, angry tweets, and not surprisingly, a whole host of uncharitable memes.
A polarizing force, you either love her for her devoted climate fervor or you hate her for the public spanking that she unleashed on world leaders for not taking the impending climate doom seriously enough. She has shamed politicians and individuals and has unapologetically called on the world to panic along with her.
But does Greta really buy what shes selling? And does her carbon footprint line up with this passion that is made clear by the static pained expression that lingers on her face?

Leave it to liberals to resort to children to do their dirty work much like drug gangs resort to using children to deal drugs or murder because they will be prosecuted, criticized, with more leniency.
Obviously AlGore and the Kenyan from Indonesia don’t believe it, they both bought oceanfront property.
Future Sinéad O’Connor.
I did wonder how she got from Sweden to the UN. Took an jet airplane did she?
She sailed to America, on what was billed as a carbon free yacht/sailing ship.
That girl ain’t right.
I would like to do an environmental audit of that “carbon free yacht/sailing ship”.
Let’s start with all the materials that were manufactured to build it. ;-)
And she seems to be traveling with an entourage. What is their combined carbon footprint?
I’m sure the apologists would say, that Greta’s carbon footprint doesn’t matter because she’s warning the world about calamities yet to come, so she’s exempt from the rules they impose on the rest of us.
Or maybe she bought carbon credits with Al Gore. Either way she’s not held to the same standard they would impose on all of us, if they had the power to do so.
You’re not supposed to worry or look into HOW it was built! It just appeared and is doing its job saving the environment! lol
That is why I call the environmentalist movement a cargo cult.
They think stuff just appears magically!
Man made Glo-Bull Warming has saved the earth from the COMING ICE AGE!
POPULAR SCIENCE, Feb 1980..
PS/What’s News ....page 73
Changing the weather intentionally or otherwise weather modification..(Earth cooling vs Greenhouse effect)
“Do you suppose we can learn enough, soon enough, to pull off a balancing act with the CO2 blanket saving us from another ice age?”
This reminds me of an old cigarette commercial ..
“THEY SAID IT COULDN’T BE DONE! (COULDN’T BE DONE! COULDN’T BE DONE!) BUT WE DID IT!”
Yes! we stopped THE COMING ICE AGE with Glo-Bull Warming!
Greta sings Swedish Death Metal - hilarious!
Since the purchase price generally reflects manufacturing energy inputs more than anything else, we can assume this was astronomically expensive both in money and in energy (CO2) costs.
But no matter.
Virtue-signaling at its finest!
In a one-of-its-kind, 18-meter, “net zero emissions”, FOUR MILLION EURO racing yacht, on loan to her from a billionaire friend. Who lives simply -— which is what the rich do, while the rest of us simply live.
And Id bet the boat has a fiberglass or metal hull.
How did little Greta recently get to Iowa from New York? The journey byTesla would take days allowing for frequent hours long recharging stops every few hundred miles. Train travel to Iowa would leave her stranded in the very southern part of the state... hours away by car from the liberal havens of Des Moines and Iowa City and rural Iowa is far removed from Tesla charging station. So how did St. Greta get to Iowa without travel in carbon belching planes and cars? Ditto for the rest her castigation tour. The
It’s all a show. She will get book deals, tv appearances and free college out of this, plus talking at the dem convention.

If it was anything like her “zero emissions” yacht trip, they probably had a semi driving ahead dropping off battery packs. Then driving back picking them up.
I’m not sure her parents are forcing her to do this. Greta seems to be a very angry person. Maybe her parents are afraid of her anger and are channeling her anger outward away from the family.
What was that old movie - Rosemary’s baby? That’s Greta.
