I have been hearing quite a lot about Greta Thunberg.
This kid has risen from nowhere to become the darling poster-girl of climate alarmists. That got me thinking. There are quite a few points that come to mind.
Now I am not in the least bit interested in hearing the whinings of a teenage girl, but I did listen to a few extracts of her speeches purely in the interests of research. What an eloquent speaker! You would almost swear that her speeches had been written for her?
And how exactly does she manage to pop up at all these worldwide events? Do the Swedes give their kids five figure sums for pocket money? And who in their right mind is going to invite a teenager to speak at a global conference anyway, unless there is some pretty powerful influence behind her?
I feel sorry for the kid. It is patently obvious that she has become a puppet figure for the alarmist causes. She ticks all the right boxes: she’s a young teenage innocent looking girl and what more could you want? They pull the strings and she dances. They are just using her for their own ends, and once they have finished with her, they’ll just dump her.
It crossed my mind that maybe if the same sentiments about warble gloaming had been expressed by someone different then would that someone have been chosen to do whistle-stop tours? Would the world have been so impressed? Would that person have been on all expenses paid trips [and I would imagine they weren’t budget trips]?
Suppose it had been this chap who went on a school strike in Sweden?
