    Greta Thunberg says she may have contracted coronavirus and has self-isolated at home with her father. The teenage climate activist said she appeared to have been infected along with her dad, actor Svante Thunberg. Both began having symptoms after a recent train tour of Europe together and so have been in isolation for the last weeks, she said.

    Greta Thunberg, the Swedish teenager who inspired the global school climate strikes, says it is “extremely likely” she has had the Covid-19 virus. The teenager, whose solo protest outside the Swedish parliament kickstarted the global youth campaign, said in a post on Instagram that she had self isolated after she and her father returned from a trip around central Europe about two weeks ago. A few days later she said they both began to feel ill, and she complained of feeling tired with “shivers, sore throat and cough”.

    Swedish teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg said Tuesday it’s “extremely likely” that she contracted the Chinese coronavirus and has “basically recovered” from it. The 17-year-old said she and father recently exhibited coronavirus-like symptoms and have self-quantified for two weeks following a trip through western Europe.

    T.S. Eliot, The Hollow MenIt’s all but official, the media has determined COVID-19 to be the tragedy we have been waiting for (Trump’s Katrina!!). We are all doomed.As James Lileks reflects, this could well mark the end of life as we know it…at least for a little while. I suspect this will seem, in retrospect, as the last “normal” week. The one in which there was other news. This doesn’t mean everything will be actually horrible. It means the news will be horrible, in that it gives a sense of a rapidly escalating catastrophe that produces mass unease and uncertainty....
  • Delingpole: David ‘Greta of the Third Age’ Attenborough Launches BBC’s Climate Bedwetting Blitzkrieg

    The BBC has completely lost the plot on climate change with its star enviro loon Sir David Attenborough leading the charge over the cliff edge like the wrinkliest, long-tusked male in a herd of suicidal walruses. “The moment of crisis has come” in efforts to tackle climate change, Sir David Attenborough has warned. According to the renowned naturalist and broadcaster, “we have been putting things off for year after year”. “As I speak, south east Australia is on fire. Why? Because the temperatures of the Earth are increasing,” he said.
  • New study shows sea level rise has been slow and a constant, pre-dating industrialization

    For those who seek to panic the public into handing control of all economic activity to the state, the prospect of rising sea levels inundating coastal cities has been the most useful tool. By propagating the theory that your SUV, air conditioning and jet travel will drown New York and Miami, and submerge Pacific island out of existence, the warmists plan to extract trillions of dollars from advanced economies, and distribute them to cronies making solar cells, electric cars, windmills, and other expensive substitutes, and to the rulers of third world countries allegedly to be devastated (with “administrative costs” sticking...

    Last week an article from the Federalist Society about Greta Thunberg popped up on my computer. It was by David Harsanyi and titled, “The Tragedy of Greta Thunberg”. The following is the first two paragraphs of his article: “Sixteen-year-old Swedish climate change activist Greta Thunberg lives in the healthiest, wealthiest, safest, and most peaceful era humans have ever known. She is one of the luckiest people ever to have lived. In a just world, Thunberg would be at the United Nations thanking capitalist countries for bequeathing her this remarkable inheritance. Instead, she, like millions of other indoctrinated kids her age,...

    An Italian politician on Wednesday gave 17-year-old Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg some fatherly advice to go back to school. Pietro Fiocchi, a member of the European Parliament, said Thunberg should consider going back to school during a meeting of the Environment Council at the European Parliament in Brussels, Belgium. The Italian politician began by thanking Thunberg for her “important role in raising public awareness on this fundamental topic.” “At the same time, I would like to give an advice as a father gives an advice to a daughter — go back to school and go back to a normal...

    SNIP The proposal looks to make the European Union's (EU) goal of reaching net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 legally binding for all of the bloc's 27 member states. To successfully hit that target, the law proposes a mechanism to raise the EU's emissions reduction target over the next three decades, the commission said in a news release. The European Union’s executive approved the regulation during a meeting attended by Greta Thunberg, the teen climate activist who has been an outspoken advocate for more stringent action to address environmental problems. “We are acting today to make the EU the...

    The City of London space wasn’t big enough so teen climate change alarmist Greta Thunberg changed cities. The Bristol Youth Strike 4 Climate event was held Friday and the entire Bristol city centre was shut down to accommodate the rally. As happens with large crowds, the total number of participants varies. Police and security people say that about 15,000 attended while Ms. Thunberg says the number was more like 30,000.It’s week 80 of Thunberg’s Fridays for Future marches. Wednesday Avon and Somerset Police warned that the crowd was expected to be large since it was promoted on social media...

    American Thinker ^ | 02/28/2020 | Marc Sheppard
    When climate alarmists first presented their poster-child advocate, then-15-year-old Greta Thunberg, she was taken by realists with the appropriate grain of salt.  While the MSM rushed to gush all over this "brave" little girl who had somehow mustered the temerity and selflessness to skip school in the service of humanity, many dismissed her "how dare you?" message as yet another banal alarmist slogan. So when news hit of 19-year-old Naomi Seibt, the so-called "anti-Greta," I must admit to being more than a bit skeptical.  After all, is the proper response to an opponent's deployment of a preposterous puppet (she really is...

    Naomi Seibt, a blonde German teenager, has become a U.S. think tank’s weapon of choice when it comes to combatting climate activist and global phenomenon Greta Thunberg. The Heartland Institute, a conservative think tank that rejects the scientific consensus on climate change, labeled Seibt as “a fantastic voice for free markets and for climate realism” and has booked her to speak at CPAC later this week. Seibt has already headlined at the UN climate conference in Madrid this past December, and CPAC will be her American debut. Although the German 19-year-old rejects “climate alarmism,” she mimics Thunberg in several ways,...

    A new book by Greta Thunberg’s mother reveals the reality of family life during her daughter’s transformation from bullied teenager to climate icon One evening in the autumn of 2014, Svante and I sat slumped on our bathroom floor in Stockholm. It was late, the children were asleep. Everything was starting to fall apart around us. Greta was 11, had just started fifth grade, and was not doing well. She cried at night when she should be sleeping. She cried on her way to school. She cried in her classes and during her breaks, and the teachers called home almost...

    Harrison Ford is dipping his toe into political waters, noting in a recent interview that talking about politics has become unavoidable. Days after the 77-year-old actor appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live and called President Donald Trump a “son of a b----,” he was asked about his recent forays into talking politics in an interview with CBS News. The star responded by noting that politics has become too divisive and called for a return to “the middle ground.” "I think it's come to the point where we gotta start talking politics," Ford said. "But we gotta talk about it in a...

    A program funded by 2020 presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg is paying the salaries of lawyers who are farmed out to liberal state attorney general offices to pursue climate-based litigation -- a compact critics say amounts to Bloomberg buying state law enforcement employees to advance his preferred political agenda. The arrangement, which currently pays the salaries of Special Assistant Attorneys General (SAAGs) in 10 Democratic AG offices, is drawing new scrutiny now that Bloomberg is running for president. The New York University School of Law's State Energy & Environmental Impact Center, which was started in 2017 with $5.6 million from Bloomberg's...

    Nobody appears to be more concerned about climate change than Democratic presidential front-runner Bernie Sanders, student activist Greta Thunberg, and the thousands of Extinction Rebellion activists who shut down London last year. Last year, Sanders called climate change “an existential threat.” Extinction Rebellion said, “Billions will die.” And Thunberg said, “I don’t want you to be hopeful” about climate change, “I want you to panic.” But if Sanders, Thunberg, and Extinction Rebellion are so alarmed about carbon emissions, why are they fighting to halt the use of two technologies, fracking and nuclear, that are most responsible for reducing them? Sanders...

    ... Every one of the party’s presidential candidates has a robust climate action agenda. It is a rare area in this primary where candidates are marching mostly to the same beat. They almost universally support a Green New Deal. They all vow to immediately reenlist the U.S. in the Paris accord to fight global warming. The differences lie in how far, how fast and how much to spend. We break down where they stand and what climate policy would look like under the vision offered by each of the Democratic hopefuls.

    Harrison Ford called Donald Trump a “son of a b----” on Monday during an appearance on late-night TV where he also accused the president of rejecting science. Ford appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Monday to promote his upcoming movie “Call of the Wild.” After showing a clip from the movie, Kimmel held up a poster for the film that featured fake reviews labeling “Call of the Wild” a “perfect call” in various ways. The quotes were all jokingly attributed to Donald Trump in an effort to mock the president’s go-to line about his call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, which...
