Greta’s "Green" coming to America was via petrochemicals worthy of a royal

Seems like Greta’s trip to New York was not quite as green as she made out!

From CFACT:

Swedish climate kid Greta Thunberg was ferried across the Atlantic on the elite racing yacht Malizia II by Pierre Casiraghi, a member of Monaco’s ruling Grimaldi family, and the youngest grandson of Princess Grace Kelly.  The yacht helped protect the Earth from emissions from plane trips by Greta, her father, and a cameraman.  Trans-Atlantic flights both ways for the yacht’s crew and Greta’s handlers did add up though.  Apparently Greens cannot cross oceans via noblesse oblige alone.

If you’d like to travel like Greta and Pierre you can have your own Imoca 60 class yacht built for around $5 million (sails extra).  Alternatively, you could pick up this aging example for only $811,720.  Cost-conscious promoters hope to cut future prices by as much as $ 1 million.

Once Socialism is fully implemented these yachts will be free to all.  A Bernie Sanders-style tax on “millionaires and billionaires” should do the trick.  Fear not, it should take years before we burn through their money and get to yours.

Time-lapse: Watch a Greta green yacht rise from petrochemicals worthy of a royal 1

(Note: For global Socialists celebrating the low carbon lifestyle at the Yacht Club of Monaco, the buttons on your blazer are to be blue or black.  Gold and silver buttons are to be worn by officers only.)

Imoca 60 class yachts are wonders of modern engineering, though carbon fiber yachts (as the name might imply), are not exactly low carbon.  They are made primarily from petroleum and natural gas/propane.  Carbon fiber yachts are pumped out of the ground by oil companies.

Watch workers spray petrochemicals into a mold to make an Imoca 60 class yacht, sister to the one Greta Thunberg used for her royal “Green” coming to America.

When not sailing their multi-million dollar racing toy, the Grimaldi family enjoys a fleet of yachts and private jets, including a royal Dassault Falcon 7X jet.  A three engine 7X will set you back $45 million, but you can pick one up used for as little as $19 million.  These jets are engineered for fuel efficiency, burning only 4,000 pounds of fuel during their first hour of flight, then settling in for an eco-sensitive fuel burn of only 2,250 pounds per hour for the remainder of the trip.

Watch Prince Albert II of Monaco after jetting in to pick up an honorary doctorate from the University of Bern in Switzerland.  The Prince and his entourage courageously spared themselves and the environment the grueling nine hour train ride from the Monte Carlo main station, freeing up valuable rail space for we hoi polloi in the process.

Here’s how Pierre Casiraghi and wife Beatrice Borromeo travel when not aboard their multi-million dollar petrochemical racing yacht.  They certainly needed a private jet to get to step-cousin Prince Ernst August, Jr.’s wedding.  With changing stations, the train ride from Monte Carlo to Hanover could have taken over 14 hours.  They might have flown commercial, but mon Dieu!  Saving the planet is one thing, but one must maintain standards.

    AND what about the hundreds of kilowatts of electricity used to power the satellite communications with which the boat was navigated, and so that she could post all her “selfies” on all her many social media accounts?

    Love it!!!!!!

    I see Germany and France are now going to be sued by Greta for doing “nothing” about climate change – if only. Talk about being hoist on ones own petard.

    Once you appease idiots, they will expect you to actually go along with their stupidity. I believe Merkel and Macron said – oh! we didn’t think she meant us. I believe someone has already asked her about going to China and India and having a plan to get them to reduce their emissions.

    It is in the same series of “unintended outcomes” as the feminists who didn’t see transgender men actually wanting to use their powder-rooms, as well as win all the female sports events. – amazing stuff.

    Just this week – Sweden shown colder now than most of the last 9000 years (true of the NH in general according Greenland Ice-cores). Plus – Sweden bathing in their “low carbon emissions” by burning wood. You couldn’t make it up – BUT they do.

    The mental abuse of Greta Thunberg is tragic. She already has some mental problems, but one day she is likely to realise how she has been used and the come down could be severe.

    ”She has deep connections to the globalist elite and activist parents who are supporters of the far-left domestic terrorist group ANTIFA.
    Thunberg’s frequent handler is Luisa-Marie Neubauer, an operative from the ONE Movement. Neubauer can be seen behind Thunberg at many of her public events. She’s a member of “ONE Foundation” managed by BONO, Bill Gates and George Soros
    Thunberg was forced to apologize this summer for wearing an ANTIFA t-shirt by mistake. However, her parents – Svante Thunberg and Malena Ernman – have been photographed wearing the exact same t-shirt, casting serious doubt on her explanation.”

      She’s not a spontaneous arising at all, carefully planned centrally by the alarmist propaganda movement, along with the school strikes, and of course linked to Gore too.

    Surely no one is insinuating that 16 year old girls in Sweden do not always dress in old fashioned clothes and wear pigtails?

    Or that she is doing this only to look childlike so those nasty sceptics can not criticise such a sweet and earnest young child crying on the world stage without appearing to be the evil deniers they clearly are? Shame on you all!

    There is such a thing as “pushing it a bit too far”. And the elite biens pensants of the world are now well over the line.
    Then they wonder why the populace voted for the likes of Trump and Brexit and several other ‘populist’ leaders and causes. (And it amuses me greatly to see the way they spit the word ‘populist’.)
    The more they push it, the harder the populace will push back.

    Paste the Url into your browser. Skeptics all know that this catastrophic climate change cult is all to do with money and has nothing to do with the environment.

    https://standpointmag.co.uk/issues/june-2019/gretas-very-corporate-childrens-crusade/

    “Whatever Greta or her parents know or think, her eco-mob increases the likelihood of legislation and investment that will make colossal profits for people like Global Challenge, We Don’t Have Time and Sustainable Energy Angels. For Sweden’s energy titans, saving the planet means government contracts to print the green stuff. Green energy lobbyists use populist scare tactics and a children’s crusade to bypass elected representatives, but their goal is technocracy not democracy, profit not redistribution. Greta, a child of woke capitalism, is being used to ease the transition to green corporatism.”

    Skeptics all know this is the agenda and the cancer has metastasized to those government scientists who rely on their incomes to perpetuate this absolute farce of Catastrophic Climate Change and Armageddon …. the World is full of trickery, it is innate in human nature…..

    The great worry I have is the unbelievable gullibility of those who are prepared to waste their time listening to this juvenile representative of a group which is responsible for closing down cities and airports in defence of their outrageously stupid beliefs. All the World leaders who gave her a platform at the U.N. meeting listened to her as if she was Jesus Christ himself. Many stood up in applause at the end of her ridiculous rantings. Our own British Cabinet Ministers treated her like God and promised that they would take action on the strength of her outlandish address. The stupid Pope makes supportive noises to his followers across the World as if this ignorant, manipulated little girl should be beatified like Mother Teresa, whilst leaders of the World’s financial centres including many in the City of London and the Bank of England are seen to fall over themselves to give support to this 16 year old, whose rudeness to those who invite her to speak seems to engender praise rather than saying ‘get back to Sweden where you belong’. The BBC, once the reliable news outlet of the World, has decided that open discussion is now a thing of the past, and anyone with a different viewpoint will not be tolerated, with previously respectable broadcasters like David Attenborough expected to support the cause, even at the extent of telling lies, without being corrected by his employers We saner members of society have had our sanity smothered by the powerful elite who have successfully manipulated the minds of the unthinking masses into following a creed. A creed that has unfortunately been taken on board by most areas of the media who will not allow any dissenting voices to be heard unless it supports the likes of Thunberg, or the spending of £50 billion to support her ideas The only hope for the rational thinkers will be years ahead when nature herself proves how wrong these modern Jeremihas’ are, but I fear I will long be forgotten by the time that comes.

      Those who support her are not ‘unbelievably gullible’. They are working to a plan – and GT is part of it. This is the UN making its play for political gain. The world – outside of the UN elite – will suffer.

    Many years ago I recall arriving at Nice airport and queuing at the Hertz desk behind the King of Norway. To be fair, he was I think renting a Rolls and probably staying on the Cap d’Antibes, but he had come in on a commercial flight with family and little sign of retainers or minders. Their carbon footprint would have been little different to ours, given that we probably did much more mileage. I suspect both families enjoyed some winter sunshine. And there was snow on the Promenade des Anglais.

    If Greta’s “parents” really wanted to do something for her, they would spend money on orthodontia for her – instead of making money off of her and her “public appearances”

    Interesting to see the incessant BBC coverage of Greta and the moronic Extinction Rebellion with their non-existent reporting of the letter signed by 500 qualified scientists sent to the UN Secretary General explaining why there is no climate emergency (ref Clintel, set up by a Dutch professor)

      It is interesting how, in the list of signatories, few are scientists from China or India. Too busy helping to expand their own economies, I guess.

    Hi all, in case this has been missed…

    In June 2009, Casiraghi became the majority shareholder of the Monaco-based construction company Engeco, which his father founded in 1984. His uncle Marco remains in the position of President over Engeco. The acquisition of the majority shares to Casiraghi’s name was handled by the Milan-based legal firm Bird & Bird.[5] Casiraghi is also the majority shareholder of Monacair.[6][7]

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pierre_Casiraghi

    Monacair is a helicopter company based at Monaco Heliport, Monaco. The airline provides various services, including: regular helicopter transfers between Nice Côte d’Azur Airport and Monaco, private flights and luxury experiences, helicopter tours, as well as helicopter maintenance, management, and handling services.

    I have suggested to several people that they google, “How many ice ages on earth”. It is interesting reading as to what has transpired on this planet over a few billion years. {That is if you really believe what science has said}.

    One thing it says, is that there have been several ice ages in the past, and we are in on, and seeing the latest one. If you know how coal was formed, and the kind of environment dinosaurs lived in, you’ll know that the North American continent was hot at one time. You may adapt to the warming planet, but you can’t stop the change.

    Only time will tell if humans become extinct like dinosaurs, but I’d like to return in about 500 years, and see how the planet looks.

    Boris First Speech.

    He gets off to a great start, telling how he’s going to make the UK great again. Listen starting at t=0:50 up to where I have the video set to start at about t=2:00. BUT FIRST listen from where I have it set to start, until t=2:30. Talk about delusional.

    • October 2, 2019 8:26 am

      Oh, blast.

      I forgot that the video always resets to t=0:00 on your website. Well, I posted the relevant times, so you should be able to keep track. And even without knowing them, when you listen you’ll see (hear) what I’ referring to. It’s short, from t=0:50 – 2:30.
