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.
