Jeremy Clarkson, a British broadcaster, columnist, and co-host of The Grand Tour, a popular motoring program on Amazon Prime Video, denounced climate change activist Greta Thunberg, calling her an "idiot" and blaming her for contributing to the loss of interest in cars by young people.

“Everyone I know under 25 isn’t the slightest bit interested in cars," Clarkson told The Sun, and "Greta Thunberg has killed the car show."

“They’re taught at school, before they say ‘Mummy and Daddy’, that cars are evil, and it’s in their heads," said Clarkson.

Most youngin’s aren’t into turning wrenches these days anyway.

Maybe I can get a deal on a 67 or 68 Cougar in the next couple of years.

I need to get the other buckets up to roadworthy first.

“Clarkson, you muppet!”

When Jeremy and I were young men, we wanted to be with our friends.

We had one television and Dad was watching westerns.

Gas was cheap and one of the cheapest forms of entertainment for young men was to get a car and cruise around.

Now, young men can be with their friends on the internet.

Very cheap for them.

““Everyone I know under 25 isn’t the slightest bit interested in cars,”

I tend to disagree. It’s natural for high school boys to think “How the hell am I gonna get to date Jenny (and get laid) if I take the bus. That’s effing gay! I need a car dude”

He’s my favorite UN-PC character. Can’t wait until the next episode about a year from now.

The cars of today are boring. That's why they're not interested.

They may want to have a car. But they aren’t the least bit interested in maintaining them, outside of taking the car to Quik Lube.

I change my own oil on all my cars most of the time. They just need one wrench and do it on a Saturday morning. I admit sometimes I get lazy and head to the local Lube shop.

My 19 year old has mountune'd his Focus RS and wants a larger intercooler for Christmas.

He runs in a pack of like-minded pre-25 year olds who love cars.

There is some hope yet....

Just relax Greta, we have a nice double feature of "Ford v. Ferarri" followed by "The Road Warrior".

I think round-the-clock screen entertainment, including online porn, has more to do with disinterest in cars than Greta.

But yes, Thunberg is indeed an idiot.

She’s not the only idiot. Those who BELIEVED her need to wear that RIBBON, too.

I don’t know, unless she was particularly good looking in her younger years, a cougar of that vintage might end up being disappointing. The back end suspension tends to go, and the front end tends to droop, even if you put lifters on it.

I prefer my "cougars" a bit younger...

That’s just wrong.

But how can anything that wrong be so right?
