And where did she get this strange idea from? As she relates, her teachers at school told her, when she was about eight.

    Teachers are straying beyond the bounds of their remit, and it’s happening globally based on an Bachelor of Arts degree qualified Al Gore’s original movie. It’s too ridiculous to contemplate yet hopefully Trumps review will at least begin to address it. And I am not a natural Trump supporter yet find myself agreeing with the man. The older I get the more I marvel at the serendipity of this life.

      No it’s not – it’s happening in the West. Nobody else cares.

        Can you show me a picture of a starving polar bear other than an aging dying bear that is too weak to walk for food? Also when Al Gore was born there were 7000 polar bears in the attic today there 40k bears , do some proper research instead of believing everything you are told.

    I think we are best-off ignoring spurious non-factual (hysterical) ramblings such as those that this unfortunate child utters. Seriously : this cannot be serious !!? The MSM and indeed our gullible political ‘leaders’ are making fools of themselves now. Most normal people have tuned out long-ago.

    Sorry – who is she – am I supposed to know?

    Frankly there’s enough naïve and stupid idiots out there, you want me to learn all their names now??

      What do you say? Who is stupid? Tell me now!

      She is really good person for the world! She cares!

        She may care however she doesn’t know what shes talking about. That’s dangerous as it sucks people in with her passion and not her knowledge .

      She can be forgiven for being somewhat naïve due to her age, but the explotation of her by others is not so easily excused – to say the least.

    So, if we were to show her pictures of fat polar bears (e.g. after a feed of walrus) would she change her mind?

    Watching the highly emotional reactions of the people on Gogglebox to the walruses, it’s easy to see how people are so easily manipulated.

    DA says 40% of the Arctic has melted accompanied by a scary graphic, then switches to walruses dying because, he says, the ice has gone.

    It’s classic brainwashing. False assertion + distressing image.

    I doubt DA will every show a Golden Eagle being smashed out the sky by a wind turbine, or flopping around helplessly on the ground with broken bones.

    The “smart meter” ads on commercial radio, such as LBC and Talksport, now feature children saying things such as “I want to grow up in a world with polar bears”, how much money is being spent on this frantic effort to meet this particular EU directive (gold-plated by the UK)?

    I want to leave the world with proper power stations, there has to be a lot of votes available for any political party that adopts that policy.

    In the 1990’s, I visited my niece and her husband in Santa Barbara, CA. Lynn and I drove up the Coast Highway to the Monterey Peninsula to Carmel-by-the-Sea and Pt. Lobos Park along the shore. As we walked the little trails along the ocean, you could see seals and birds. There were numerous charming little otters, pounding shellfish on their chests with a rock as they floated on their kelp tethers.

    Every so often, I would circle back to the triptych board “ranger station,” to identify the plants I had just photographed. While I was writing down some species, a woman came burbling up to her friend standing there and said: “I am SO relieved; I just learned that otters can die of natural causes!” I silently marveled.

      Death by being eaten often before having chance to breed is natural causes for critters. Live fast breed fast die young.

    Sadly there is a history of doom cults. The first christians were a doom cult. For some unknown reason there is a kind of human who just loves to feel doomed. Before the internet age they were marginalized cranks now with our wonderfully left wing impartial mainstream media, ANYTHING which attacks Western Culture is to be blown out of proportion. What a miserable childhood she must have had to have such negative teachers AND activist parents. Look how she is dressed! She is 16 going on 12!

      The book of relevations was of such dubious value the the biggest split between the Orthodox and Catholic factions was on its inclusion which for half the Christian world which is non Catholic meant it was not included at that time(Millennialism), and it is only included in the Tyndall Bible and King James because they were direct translations of the then current Catholic Bible (15th -17th C)into English, few knew that there were other Christian sects than Catholic, even fewer knew that they were of a splinter faction of Roman Orthodoxy, even fewer knew of the Apocrypha in that the Catholic version of the bible(then Gospel). was forrmualted by Saul to create chrisitanity as its head who persecuted unto death the other apostels and was likely himself one of the authors of Joshuas death few even know that names were switched out, I AM I for YAHWEH a demon, the Lord (BAAl another demon also god to Carthage) or that the original followers of Joshua were called disciples not Christians who were persecuted out of existence or that the New Testament took over seven hundred years to write and has more than 200,000 different versions. The doom aspects were considered great recuiting tools and worked well during plagues and famines, it is just that niether the second coming or the end of the world turned up.

    Did anyone notice the caption on the above picture? “Teen Activist Gretha Thunberg invited party leaders to a meeting in the House of Commons”. Just take a moment to drink that in.

      It describes all that has been wrong with politics for the last half century.

      At least Theresa May had the nerve to not attend.

    Climate change alarmists are sick people, needlessly frightening millions of children around the world – and adults too!

    I know she is skipping a lot of school to play at being Jean d’Arc or whatever she is being built up at but surely she can tell the difference between 28% and 1%? That is the the Chinese part of the global CO2 output and the UK part respecively. Would her time not be better served lecturing the Chinese and more to the point if CO2 is SO important then why is she not doing that? This is when the whole scam unravels. Just look at the psycophantic pathetic UK MPs all vieing with eachother to look the more “engaged” with her. Truely pathetic! This is about the UK being seen as an easy target for destruction by the marxists. It is NOTHING to do with the climate, that is just an umbrealla underwhich to bring in lots of useful idiots to act as a smoke screen behind which the marxists do their nasty business.

    I think there needs to be a new law on the statute books against the crime of willfully lying to children because this damages them for life.This IS a form of kiddyfiddling!

    Those whom the Gods would destroy, they first make mad. When 40 of our elected representatives gather round to listen with adulation to the views of a 16 year old child on a matter of scientific complexity, we know the end must be nigh.

    I have watched with interest poor little Greta and her mates and their protests. Thank goodness they got protection from their synthetic rainwear, clothing, hats and tents. Their synthetic signage was at least reusable. Their synthetic water bottles kept them hydrated. Oh – I forgot, thet all need oil and/or petroleum based material for their production. All sounds a bit hypocritical to me..

    Lies have always been believed by children. Porblem is, the world is now 80% children, even where there should be adults.

    Isaiah 3:4 –
    “I will make mere lads their leaders, and children will rule over them.”

    Are we there now?
