    In what can only be described as another attempt to delegitimize the value of the Nobel Peace Prize, exploited teenager Greta Thunberg has been nominated again for the award. Many on the left were disappointed last year when they said Greta, who's basically famous for skipping school, was "snubbed" for the prize after being favored to win it. Two left-wing Swedish lawmakers publicly announced their nomination of the Thunberg on Monday, claiming she “has worked hard to make politicians open their eyes to the climate crisis.” Her work toward “reducing our emissions and complying with the Paris Agreement is therefore...

    Climate activist Greta Thunberg has applied to trademark her name and her movement Fridays for Future to prevent them from being misused for commercial reasons, she announced Wednesday. Thunberg said in an Instagram post that she and the movement “are constantly being used for commercial purposes without any consent whatsoever” for marketing, selling products and collecting money. “This action is to protect the movement and its activities,” she wrote, adding that, “I assure you, I and the other school strikers have absolutely no interests in trademarks. But unfortunately it needs to be done.” She added that the movement belongs to...

    In my last post, I commented on Joe Stiglitz view, heading to Davos, that billionaires and corporate leaders are anxious to pollute the air. In my wealth tax series I reported on the popular view on the Warren Sanders Saez Zucman view that corporate leaders and billionaires represent a regressive right wing political force, that must be stopped by any means including expropriation of their wealth, even if that means destroying the businesses that make them rich. My colleague Niall Ferguson reports from Davos what seems actually to be on billionaires' minds:

    President Trump on Tuesday said he didn’t know anything about Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg but called her “very angry” in an interview with The Wall Street Journal. “I don’t really know anything about her,” Trump said of Thunberg when asked about her on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. The president then called her “very angry.” Trump accused Thunberg, a 17-year-old activist who also spoke at Davos, of having an “anger management problem” after she was honored with Time’s “Person of the Year” award in December. **SNIP** Earlier Tuesday, Thunberg told the gathering of business...

    It's a new decade,* so it's time for a new round of panic about the weather killing us all. Swedish child-priestess and chronic truant Greta Thunberg is at the 2020 World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, this week, because that's where the spotlight is. And she's scolding all the grown-ups for not doing what she wants when she wants it, because Veruca Salt wasn't fictional.I was scared of the Boogeyman when I was little too. I just didn't have crowds of adults applauding my cries of fear: Watch Greta Thunberg admonish world leaders for doing "basically nothing" to reduce...

    ... The truth, as one anonymous blogger aptly put it, is that your generation is unable to work up to forty hours per week without being chronically depressed and anxious. Its members cannot even decide if they want to be a boy or a girl, or both, or neither, or a “they.” They cannot eat meat without crying. I might add that your generation needs “trigger warnings” and “safe spaces” as pre-conditions for learning in school. Its members have a pathological need to be coddled and protected from the challenging realities of life. Your generation is the biggest demander and...

    In an interview with TV Republika on Christmas Eve, controversial Archbishop of Krakow Marek Jedraszewski launched an extraordinary spray at the “very dangerous phenomenon” of “ecologism”. He said that “phenomenon” is “contrary to everything that is written in the Bible” – which instructs humankind to “subdue the earth” for its own needs – and signals a “return to Engels”. But Jedraszewski saved some of his harshest criticisms for young anti-climate change campaigner Thunberg, whom the archbishop said “is becoming an oracle for all political and social forces” trying to “break with the entire Christian tradition”. The Krakow archbishop dismissed “teenage...

    Joaquin Phoenix has now won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama thanks to his critically acclaimed performance in Todd Phillips’ revisionist comic book movie “Joker.” Believe it or not, the Golden Globe victory is Phoenix’s first major Best Actor win of the 2019-20 awards season outside of smaller critics’ groups. The majority of precursor Best Actor prizes this season have been awarded to Adam Driver of “Marriage Story” or Adam Sandler of “Uncut Gems.” Phoenix was nominated for the Golden Globe awards opposite Driver in “Marriage Story,” Christian Bale in “Ford v. Ferrari,” Jonathan Pryce...

    After host Ricky Gervais admonished the Golden Globes winners Sunday night not to bring up politics in their acceptance speeches because they "know nothing about the real world," actress Michelle Williams did just that with a two minute long screed supporting abortion while accepting the award for Best Actress in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for TV. Williams, who, ironically, is pregnant, started out talking about choices in acting before transitioning to bodily choice, then seemingly admitted to her own abortion when she said she "wouldn't have been able to do this without employing a woman's right to...

    Felicity Huffman, Cats, Joe Pesci, the Catholic Church, Judi Dench and James Corden got the Ricky Gervais treatment during the opening monologue of tonight’s Golden Globe Awards, but none took the brunt of the host’s jibes quite as sharply as Hollywood itself. Casting the industry town as hypocritically woke – with a Jeffrey Epstein joke thrown in for good measure – the notoriously scathing British comic advised Golden Globe winners to skip the moralizing. Said Gervais, “Thank your agent and your God and…” The rest was bleeped, but he seemed to say something along the lines of “then get the...

    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)

    The news is good from the Swedish "genius" who claims to know how to save the world. She has gone home and plans to take some time off from her self-imposed world tours and speeches in her role as our savior. I don't know about you, but I am sick to death of Greta Thunberg. If I ever hear or see her again, it will be too soon. This young girl has gotten all too much publicity, all too much adulation and all too much support for her "beliefs" about climate change – if, indeed, they really are her beliefs.

    Tron’s controversial CEO and chief marketeer Justin Sun has pledged $1 million to climate activist Greta Thunberg. In a tweet to Thunberg posted yesterday, Sun said: “As a young entrepreneur, I share Greta Thunberg’s passion to change the world. Crypto will contribute immensely on reducing carbon footprint by implementing decentralised settlement. I would like to personally commit USD$1 mil to Greta Thunberg’s initiative.” Thunberg, 16, began making headlines in August 2018 after organising a school strike outside the Swedish parliament to protest about the lack of progress being made on preventing climate change. Despite her age, she is quickly becoming...

    On November 12, young Greta Thunberg set sail from America to Europe. But not in the same way she arrived, and you’ll hear few people mention that. Back in August, much was made of her trip to America. She “doesn’t fly because of the outsize greenhouse gas emissions from aviation,” the New York Times reports. So, she sailed to America on a very environmentally-friendly racing yacht instead. It was reported that the cost of that entire voyage from England to America that she began back in August “has not been calculated.” That’s not true, of course. Somebody has certainly calculated...

    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...

    Greta Thunberg apologized Saturday after saying that politicians should be put "against the wall” after some critics alleged that the teen climate activist was advocating for violence against officials. “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 accountable,” Thunberg tweeted. “That’s what happens when you improvise speeches in a second language. But of course I apologise if anyone misunderstood this. I can not enough express the fact that I - as well as the...

    Earlier this week, 16-year-old Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg was named Time's Person of the Year, defeating four other finalists, including US President Donald Trump, Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi, the Hong Kong protesters, and the whistleblower in the Trump-Ukraine scandal. A group of Trump supporters has edited the TIME magazine's 'Person of the Year' cover by replacing the head of climate activist Greta Thunberg with that of the US president. The altered picture was accompanied by a list of things the group claims Trump has accomplished since taking office three years ago.
