Leftists have gone ballistic over criticism that their newest global warming campaign star, 16-year-old Greta Thunberg, resembles some of the Nazi propaganda that was used to turn the world against Jews more than half a century ago.
Thunberg is a celebrity in her home country Sweden. She started skipping class to protest global warming, or climate change as it’s now known, especially since global cooling leveled off and global warming is no more.
She delivered a rant recently at the United Nations, and charged the adults in the room with stealing her dreams and her childhood.
“People are suffering. People are dying. Entire ecosystems are collapsing,” she claimed. “We are in the beginning of a mass extinction…”
See a compilation of her statements from Ryan Saavedra:
Which prompted author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza to note her resemblance to those whose images were used by evildoers at the time, in the time leading up to World War II, to promote their propaganda.
On social media, he said, “Children – notably Nordic white girls with braids and red cheeks – were often used in Nazi propaganda. An old Goebbels technique! Looks like today’s progressive Left is still learning its game from an earlier Left in the 1930s.”
He included an image alongside a depiction of a female in Nazi garb.
Those who disagreed with his evaluation of a political issue weren’t happy.
“Do us a favor, blow your brains out. And please have someone post the vid,” was the diatribe from “Max Keiser, tweet poet.”
They immediately demanded that his speech be censored, with “Cassy Stowe” explaining, “Amazing that so many have reported this tweet and it STILL hasn’t been taken down.”
“Caroline,” part of #RESIST, said, “Take down this tweet. You are insane. She is a 16 year old child, with Asberger’s syndrome, she’s not part of propaganda.”
Thunberg was not as much in favor, however, on the social media comments that followed Saavedra’s video.
“Should have stopped at ‘I shouldn’t be up here,” wrote “Tony Po.”
“‘I should be in school’ Then go to school,” added “Samantha Garber.
“Niko,” however, remained confused, “I see they’ve changed the propaganda to Climate Action (from Protect the Ozone, the Global Warming, Global Cooling, to Climate ‘Change’ – just in my lifetime). So is it going to be colder? Warmer? Moderate to fine? And Action against what exactly?”
Her performance wasn’t so far from propaganda, another said.
“Kimann” said, “Child abuse to manipulate a little girl to this extent & then use her as a human billboard for childhood angst. There is nothing she does/can do that is not planned & brought to fruition by her adult controllers & so-called caregivers.”
“This girl has anger problems. She has been trained to be a vear monger,” added Alexander Padilla. “Regardless of the issue, I do not want to be lectured by a kid.”
Thunberg’s rant was littered with insults, including, “There will not be any plans presented in line with these figures here because the numbers are too uncomfortable and you are still not mature enough to tell it like it is.”
And, “If you choose to fail us I say we will never forgive you.”
And “Right here, right now is where we draw the line.”
At the Twitter social media aggregator Twitchy was the comment, “‘Where are the parents’? Greta Thunberg’s ‘disturbing’ rant at U.N. Climate Action Summit suggests she’s been thoroughly terrorized.”
The comment continued, “The bad people in this equation are all those who have instilled this young woman with fear and are using her as a human shield – and her parents for letting it happen.”
Thunberg’s warnings echo those of socialist U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., who is on record that in a few years Miami would disappear because of global warming. And that the world has only about a dozen years left.
But the Competitive Enterprise Institute has reported there has been a long list of foreboding threats about the climate – none of which have happened.
“Modern doomsayers have been predicting climate and environmental disaster since the 1960s. They continue to do so today,” the report said, but, none have come true.
The CEI pointed out that while the predictions grab media headlines, “the failures are typically not revisited.”
Among the failures:
The Los Angeles Times reported in 1967 that Stanford University’s Paul Ehrlich warned it already was too late for the world “to avoid a long period of famine.”
“Most disastrous by 1975,” said the report.
Ehrlich, a “population biologist,” had several others. In 1969 he warned that by 1989, “everyone will disappear in a cloud of blue steam.”
In 1970, the New York Times reported on a threat from James P. Lodge Jr., a “pollution expert,” who said there would be an ice age by 2000.
Also in 1970, NASA’s S.I. Rasool said that over the next five to 10 years, there would be “such a temperature decrease [that it] could be sufficient to trigger an ice age.”
Brown University scientists in 1972 wrote to the president that “very soon” there would be “a global deterioration of climate, by order of magnitude larger than any hitherto experienced by civilized mankind.”
They looked at the bottom of the ocean to determine that.
The list continued.
WND long has reported on such failures and admissions about the political and financial agenda behind the activists pushing the idea of global cooling, global warming and climate change.
Al Gore, for example, once admitted the campaign is “torqued up.”
He was discussing a warning from the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change that horrible things are ahead for humanity if it continues to use carbon fuels.
PBS host Judy Woodruff noted the panel members were “painting a much more alarming picture of what we face than we had previously known.”
Gore, the vice president under Bill Clinton and a failed Democratic nominee in 2000, said, “The language that the IPCC used in presenting it was torqued up a little bit, appropriately – how [else] do they get the attention of policy-makers around the world?”
If you want the actual scientist, a look at scientist Art Robinson’s The Petition Project is helpful.
The effort has gathered the signatures of at least 31,487 scientists who agree that there is “no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gases is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth’s atmosphere and disruption of the Earth’s climate.”
They say, “Moreover, there is substantial scientific evidence that increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide produce many beneficial effects upon the natural plant and animal environments of the Earth.”
Robinson, who has a Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of California-San Diego, where he served on the faculty, co-founded the Linus Pauling Institute with Nobel-recipient Linus Pauling, where he was president and research professor. He later founded the Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine. His son, Noah Robinson, was a key figure in the petition work and has a Ph.D. in chemistry from Caltech.
