    Greta Thunberg’s father said in a new interview that the 16-year-old climate activist from Sweden has become much happier after taking up the environmental cause — but that he worries about all the “hate” she faces. Actor-turned-producer Svante Thunberg, 50, told the BBC that he and Greta’s mom, opera singer Malena Ernman, at first objected to their shy daughter becoming an eco-warrior. “Obviously, we thought it was a bad idea, putting herself out there with all the hate on social media,” he said about Greta, who was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome — a form of autism — at age 12.

    As 2019 comes to an end, one of the (many) things it will be remembered for is the year politicians weaponized children. Politicians have always used kids as props, but now they’re routinely tossed around as explosive devices to short circuit or end discussions adults don’t want to take place. And we’re all in trouble if we let it succeed. It actually started in 2018, with the David Hoggs of the world who were eager to turn tragedy into attention. The media was a more than willing partner, elevating voices singing songs they liked while ignoring every student with the...

    The EU won't be able to lead by example if other countries can see what the Green Deal is actually headed toward: economic ruin, job loss, and more unwanted government intrusion. TimeÂ’s person of the year is a teenage activist famous for castigating adults across the world over their perceived inaction on climate change. Other activists tell us the world is burning down around us and weÂ’re doing nothing to stop it.Politicians and scientists are forcing policies on people and employers in moves to supposedly save the world without offering realistic, cost-effective, alternative energy sources. Of all the ills facing...

    The Times has claimed in an analysis that despite a boom in the sale of Swedish eco-activist Greta Thunberg-related merchandise indicating greater environmental awareness, much of it is either transported from China or made from environmentally unfriendly materials. The “Greta” memorabilia includes a variety of T-shirts, mugs, stickers, badges and bags which are currently available online via Amazon, eBay and Etsy. (Please see link for full article)

    Climate crisis activist Greta Thunberg recently appeared in DC Comics and Frank Miller’s Dark Knight Returns: The Golden Child. Thunberg appears at the very end of the book as Carrie Kelley as Batwoman has assembled a group of protestors to take on Darkseid. Thunberg is one of the protestors. Darkseid describes the protestors: “Look at them…fists clenched in righteous rage…Eyes glistening with hope and determination…” He adds, “…Yes. They will serve me well…once they are turned.” Not only does the book feature Greta Thunberg, but it also takes issue with President Donald Trump and his supporters. The book shows crazed...

    An Etobicoke mother is upset that seven-and eight-year-old kids were shown a library presentation consisting of an emotional speech by child climate activist Greta Thunberg and a carbon clock predicting humans have eight years left to act before the point of no return for saving humanity from climate change. During the presentation at least one child shouted out something to the effect of “We’re all going to die!” or “I don’t want to die!” in response to a clock showing two scenarios of global temperatures rising above the point of no return, the direr one showing a clock ticking down...

    It’s hard to think of anyone who defined the spirit of 2019 more than Greta Thunberg, the teenage climate activist who addressed the United Nations Climate Action Summit, held her own against a cyberbully who just happens to be the President of the United States, and honored the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio with a visit. Now, Thunberg’s meteoric rise will be chronicled in a Hulu documentary that will air in 2020, the streaming service announced on Tuesday. Produced by Cecilia Nessen and Fredrik Heinig via B-Reel Films and directed by Stieg Larsson documentary cinematographer Nathan Grossman, the Thunberg documentary will...

    Oh, great, another super lefty is getting the fawning documentary treatment from Hulu in the near future. It was reported on Wednesday that everyone’s favorite diminutive doomsday cult leader Greta Thunberg will be immortalized via documentary by the streaming platform. Ugh, no more, please! Ahem, we mean, Yay! Greta Thunberg’s getting a movie everybody! She’s so awesome (because saying otherwise means we’re guilty of child abuse.) The Hollywood outlet Deadline reported that the sixteen-year-old Swedish climate change activist who has inspired the collective panic attacks of millions worldwide is getting yet another media opportunity to spread her climate change hysteria....

    Full header: German Train Company Had Something to Say About Greta Thunberg's Photo of Herself Sitting on Floor Greta Thunberg was called out by a German train company after the Swedish climate activist tweeted a photo of herself sitting on the floor of what she said was an “overcrowded” train. “Traveling on overcrowded trains through Germany,” she tweeted Saturday. “And I’m finally on my way home.” Deutsche Bahn (DB) spotted her message and was quick to offer a fuller picture of what really took place on their “overcrowded” train. “Dear Greta, Thank you for supporting us railroaders in the fight...

    Former President Barack Obama asserted that many of the world's problems can be attributed to old men refusing to relinquish their power and said women are "pretty indisputably" better than men. "Now women, I just want you to know, you are not perfect, but what I can say pretty indisputably is that you're better than us," Mr. Obama said during a speech at a private event in Singapore, according to BBC News. The former president, who left office in January 2017, added that if women ran every nation in the world, there would be "significant improvements across the board on...

    Clearly Greta Thunberg is being exploited by her cynical puppetmasters, but equally clearly she’s a tiresome, bizarre Marxist scold whose exploitation of the hapless dummies who buy into the climate change hoax is part of what is an increasingly violent plot to undermine capitalism and freedom. Recently, the cretins at TIME, which shockingly still exists in 2019, named her “Person of the Year.” That’s appropriate, since 2019 has been a very annoying year. In 2029, after the world hasn’t ended but her usefulness has, she’ll be a Jeopardy question and probably shacked up with an unemployed performance artist named Björn...

    It’s just a bunch of hot air. A German railway company has taken back an apology they made to Greta Thunberg after they realized the climate activist wasn’t schlepping it on the train’s floor but instead was treated “friendly” in first class. The rail company was responding to an image Thunberg tweeted of herself sitting amid bags and suitcases on the floor of what she called “overcrowded trains through Germany.” The company, Deutsche Bahn, initially released a statement that said they “continue working hard on getting more trains, connections and seats.” They also thanked Thunberg for supporting the company’s battle...

    A handful of major states resisted pressure on Dec. 15 to ramp up efforts to combat global warming as a U.N. climate summit came to a delayed close. The summit talks in Madrid, dubbed COP25, were viewed as a test of governments’ collective will for more aggressive cuts to greenhouse gas emissions. But the conference, in its concluding draft, endorsed only a modest declaration on the “urgent need” to close the gap between existing emissions pledges and the temperature goals of the 2015 Paris climate pact. Brazil, China, Australia, Saudi Arabia, and the United States had led resistance to bolder...

    Full header: PR Makeover: Greta Thunberg apologizes for call to kill, claims it 'goes without saying' she's against violence Young Greta Thunberg's handlers must have noticed a certain public relations problem after their youthful charge called for politicians who didn't share her views on global warming to be put up "against the wall." I wrote about that here. She's since tweeted these: Greta Thunberg ✔ @GretaThunberg Yesterday I said we must hold our leaders accountable and unfortunately said “put them against the wall”. That’s Swenglish: “att ställa någon mot väggen” (to put someone against the wall) means to hold someone...

    “Saturday Night Live” usually targets only conservatives, but the hyper liberal show has been taking aim at liberals lately, too. In its latest show on Saturday, SNL slapped around climate alarmist Greta Thunberg, played by Kate McKinnon. “The elves will drown,” a dour Greta declares at one point, referencing a melting North Pole. The cold open began with Aidy Bryant, dressed as Sam the Snowman from the “Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer” cartoon, saying families in America are more divided politically than ever. “But if we listen in to some dinner conversations tonight, I bet we’d find out we...

    Sixteen year old Gretaand of Sweden has recently been named "Person of the Year" by Time Magazine.  Here are some likely reasons why Greta was chosen as a key spokesperson for the Global Warming Movement: Appealing to Emotions is Easier than Debating Science — Making a 16-year old girl (who looks no more than 13) the spokesperson for the Climate Change cause is another way the Progressives are telling us to ignore the science and "just trust" the Paris Accord globalists. Greta can't be Criticized — or at least that's what the Progressives thought, saying to themselves: "When Trump...

    Time magazine's Person of the Year is starting to sound a little bloodthirsty: Greta Thunberg told cheering protesters today 'we will make sure we put world leaders against the wall' if they fail to take urgent action on climate change. *snip* Against the wall? It's kind of in line with Bernie Sanders's vow to put bankers in jail, except that it sounds more like something a totalitarian fanatic like Hitler or Lenin or Castro would say. Line 'em up and shoot 'em if they don't do what young Greta says? No disagreement, no civil discourse, no talking things out, no...
