One of The Guardian’s best pieces of bias

The Guardian, in the interests of ‘inviting’ harsh criticism and serving up some major league curve ball questions for teenager Greta Thunberg, it summoned the following experts on climate change to challenge her:

1) Maisie Williams – actress

2) Jeremy Corbyn MP – Opposition Leader

3) Jameela Jamil – actress and activist

4) Simon Armitage – Poet laureate

5) Lily Cole – model and campaigner

6) Sigrid – singer and songwriter

7) David Lammy – Labour MP

8) Stewart Lee – comedian

9) Rutger Bregman- historian and author

10) Jane Goodall – UN messenger of peace

Of course no one wants to be seen bullying a child but how can anyone take this as anything other than junk journalism? No wonder it needs to fund raise its existence because its audience can’t be bothered to pay. Why would they?

Of course it was only in late May that  The Guardian editorial department encouraged the use of sensationalist language. Instead of climate change, “climate emergency, climate crisis and climate breakdown” should be used in its place to describe the situation. “Global heating” is also considered the new norm as it sounds racier than warming.

CM doesn’t question or criticize Thunberg’s enthusiasm and energy but has often questioned the left’s brazen use of her to push the climate agenda. It is utterly embarrassing and disgusting to see politicians and others bow and scrape to a teenager who has been brainwashed by activist teachers. It’s nothing to do with Thunberg. If her preaching is so prophetic, perhaps we should shut down our universities as there is clearly nothing to learn after 16 years of age.

XR excels in its own stupidity again

Extinction Rebellion (XR) truly take the cake in terms of not understanding their cause very well. Six XR activists were arrested for blocking one of London’s biggest concrete suppliers.

Did it occur to these Mensa members that massive slabs of concrete are required to form the base to anchor wind turbines to? Concrete is also used to ground solar panels. Perhaps more coking coal and bauxite to make steel or vast amounts of toxic materials that go to make solar panels and batteries should be encouraged?

One protestor said,

We have to pause and recognise the harm it is causing both locally and globally; locally with the dust in the air our children breathe and globally with the inextricable CO2 emissions involved which are destroying the world.”

Yet again proves this is just a religion where the disciples believe any old tosh that is thrown their way. No attempt to see reason. Just block traffic and cause more CO2 to be emitted. Well done on all counts. The laziness of the cause is exposed on a daily basis.

These people should be forced to pay damages to those they disrupt. Why should the concrete company or builder be forced to bear externalities created by these people?

Climate alarmist Streisand flies 3 pooches to London for concert

Barbra Streisand has flown her three pooches 10,000 miles to London to listen to her Hyde Park performance. As with most climate alarmists, they rarely practice what they preach. This only makes CM sleep more soundly at night that we have little to worry about. Feel sorry for the pooches.

New Greta Thunberg bumper stickers on sale

Seems even the peacenik Germans have had enough of Greta Thunberg. Amazon is selling bumper stickers to those motorists sick of being lectured to by a 16yo.

Although await the backlash be the activists getting Amazon to remove the page. It won’t much matter as people will just go direct to source.

The teenager and her big sister

The Guardian has published a conversation between the 16yo climate activist, Greta Thunberg, who recently told a group of adults they’re just “uninformed” and Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who thinks we should go out of our way to make air travel unnecessary.

For as much as The Guardian hypes this Skype call as the intellectual version of the Jamaican men’s 4x100m Olympic sprint team, CM think it is more like Eric the Eel and Eddie the Eagle.

Despite AOC’s Green New Deal being dismissed by her own party as a “green dream” and it losing 57-0 in the Senate, The Guardian paints her as a doctorate in her field. Sadly, her younger sidekick will soon receive an honorary degree from the University of Mons in Belgium.

Anyway, the manifesto of the left is all in this conversation – the politics of envy, the evil oil lobby, the importance of tokenism and of course a 16yo telling us that she knows best.

One of the telling lines from Thunberg runs,

I saw very recent numbers, I think it was yesterday, that suggested about 2% of Sweden’s population don’t believe in the climate crisis. Here it’s not as acceptable to not believe in it. Everyone accepts that it’s a fact. But still we aren’t talking about it, and it’s not a priority. We are just treating it like any other issue.”

Two points.

First, Thunberg explains the totalitarian propaganda shaming of it “not [being] as acceptable not to believe in it

Second, any politician staring at only 2% skepticism faces next to no risks to pushing a climate agenda. Take Ireland. It too has stated a climate emergency with a glossy Climate Action Plan 2019 yet the budget papers tell the complete opposite to crisis – 0.6% of total budget spend on the environment with a cap out to 2022. Hardly the actions of an emergency mandate…

In any event Thunberg plans to travel to the UN summit in NY on September 23rd. Given she doesn’t fly she is still committed to go there. She’ll need to sail because catching an ocean liner is far more polluting than an aircraft. Having said that, her wafer thin size catching a commercial flight won’t add any net emissions to those already in the air. SH can also take solace that the Virgin Group CEO has at least muttered we should consider not to fly to save the planet instead of shutting the airline down.

The good thing is that AOC has extended every courtesy to Thunberg when she arrives. To be honest she should be thrust onto the stage at the Democrat primaries to add to the hard left tack it has already taken. He’ll, she can even claim illegal status and vote for AOC in New York, which has just joined the other 650 group thinking councils around the world to declare a “climate emergency.”

D’oh – Extinction Rebellion shortchange themselves 3 years

Today, the sloppy Extinction Rebellion (XR) mob have pulled out a memo from Jan 2018 to tell us we have only five years to save ourselves. 2025 they constantly warn us! Sadly if XR bothered to read Harvard Professor James Anderson’s prediction properly they would noted that he mentioned “2022”, not “2025”. Perhaps we should thank the XR for awarding us three extra years to muddle.

Maybe hysteria is sharply correlated with inaccuracy.

So CM chooses “extinction” of the “rebellion” thanks to the group’s inability to get the facts right especially when they lean towards their very own innate biases.

Recall CM pointed out the group’s previous sloppy work – here.

And these clowns want us to listen to them. No thanks. At least with this mistake Greta Thunberg will make it to her 21st birthday!

NY Times tells the truth for a change

The Extinction Rebellion protested outside the New York Times HQ complaining that the paper and other mainstream media outlets are not doing enough to alert people of the climate emergency we face. The demands included compelling journalists to use more hysterical language so they can push for more “radical responses.”

70 were arrested. No care for wasting other people’s time.

The NYT was a little upset and released the following,

There is no national news organization that devotes more time, staff or resources to producing deeply reported coverage to help readers understand climate change than The New York Times.” The paper also claimed in a statement that it published almost 800 articles on climate change last year.

One of the first factual things it has written in a while.
