    Greta Thunberg catches lift to UN COP25 climate summit in Madrid with Australian sailing couple

    Greta Thunberg have found her ride to the UN climate summit.

    "Teen climate activist Greta Thunberg will make the COP25 UN climate summit after hitching a ride back across the Atlantic with an Australian couple travelling the world.

    The 16-year-old had travelled from her native Sweden to California by boat, train and electric car and was planning to continue on to the next round of climate negotiations, originally scheduled to be held in Santiago, Chile in December.

    The Santiago summit was cancelled by Chile's government because of political unrest in the South American country and moved to the Spanish capital of Madrid.

    Ms Thunberg refuses to fly because of the carbon emissions involved and had been searching for an environmentally-friendly way to travel back to Europe to attend the summit."

    Inb4 the anti-Thunberg trolling.

    The fact that a sixteen-year-old woman stirs up as much butthurt as she does is a testament to her impact.

    More a testament to certain peoples' character.

    They **** themselves over Hogg as well, and he really hasn't had anything in the way of a practical impact.



    Think about it. First they try to "disprove" AGW by mocking Al Gore for flying on a plane. Then when Greta takes boats, they mock her for that. Pathetic.

    The deniers have been quite in this thread but they have continue to create new threads and post about her all over this forum. That this show the impact she and the growing climate movement has.

    That the growing movement also scares fossil fuel companies and others powerful economical and political interests that wants to defend and profit from the status quo.

    Does Greta Thunberg’s Lifestyle Equal Climate Denial? One Climate Scientist Seems To Suggest So.

    It’s been entertaining watching activists on Twitter arrange their circular firing squads~ctm From Forbes Nives Dolsak and Aseem Prakash Green Tech We write on environmental issues, climate politics and NGOs. The climate debate has taken a nasty turn. It is no longer a shouting match between climate affirmers and climate deniers. Now the finger-wagging is…

    Thunberg v. Mann is now the debate to watch!

    Please show proof that anyone is disproving AGW by citing Al Gore's plane rides as evidence of that.

    Yeah, nobody ever did that.

    Oh look, there are people trying to use Gore's use of a plane to suggest that he is lying in what he says about AGW. And that's only from the first 10-result page of results in advanced search. Many many more pages show up. You'll probably just run your mouth to deflect, deny, or possibly lie. That's if you don't jump thread to run your mouth at other people who do not idiotically and arrogantly deny science they cannot understand. Whatever you do, you sure won't admit that you were wrong. People who demand "proof" never do.

    They also never have anything intelligent to say, particularly about AGW. Not only is that because it remains valid (as all science does until actually disproven), but also because you couldn't understand even 10% of a peer reviewed paper about it; not any equations, not any charts, not even the most basic of facts. You're a science fiction writer, not a scientist.

    You are also the guy who couldn't tell the difference between a global climate....

    ....and the weather one day in the UK.








    Anyway, I've given you more attention than you deserve. This is the first post of yours I've read in months, and that's only because I accidentally clicked on your quote notification than the one below it, Fledermaus's. Don't feel too bad. At least you got your posting name right.

    Your claim is false. What is demonstrated is that Gore's a hypocrite. His hypocrisy isn't AGW evidence either way.

    Residents of Braemar in north-east Scotland were shivering in a temperature of -14.4C (6.1F), the Met Office said – the lowest temperature in the UK since 2012 when it reached -15.6C (3.9F) at Holbeach, Lincolnshire.
    Funny how all the eco-nuts keep complaining of the record heatwaves over the summer, yet they completely ignored the record cold just a few months ago..

    It certainly felt like Christmas in July on Wednesday morning when a cold front washed over West Texas and broke a century-old record low for San Angelo.San Angelo residents felt the cool temperatures as the low hit 57 degrees, making it the coolest July 24 on record. It narrowly beat the previous record of 58, which was set 104 years ago on July 24, 1915.
    Abilene also broke its record with a cool 62 degrees, breaking the record of 65 degrees set in 1989. Most of the West Central Texas region felt lows in the 50-degree range, according to the National Weather Service.
    I'll just leave this here.

    Yup, these maniacs and their fanatical supporters of climate change pseudo science now want to force everyone to become vegans and bring back swamps! What's next, ban people from farting too?

    This is the new fascism of the 21st century.
    Doesn't know the difference between a global climate over time, and weather in one place on one day; scared of being forced to become vegan and being "ban[ned] . . . from farting." Yeah, that sounds like an educated, trained, and experienced scientist who works in the AGW field and might be worth listening to.

    Right.



    People aren't as stupid as you need them to be in general. But I suppose there are enough people saying this hopelessly stupid crap for purely political reasons. So you can high-five each other for each saying something hopelessly stupid and/or dishonest, then tell yourselves all the high-fiving means you were right and thus win a prize.

    I respond to you even less than to him. I have no desire to get sucked down in to a rabbit hole of confused contrarianism and goalpost shifting.
