Climate Activists Use Kids to Fuel Hysteria

By Micah Moen 100 Comments October 9, 2019


people are suffering people are dying entire ecosystems are collapsing we are in the beginning of a mass extinction and all you can talk about is money and fairytales of eternal economic growth how dare you because if you really understood the situation and still kept on failing to act then you would be evil and that I refuse to believe the popular idea of cutting our emissions in half in ten years only gives us a 50% chance of staying below 1.5 degrees and the risk of setting of irreversible chain reactions beyond human control how dare you pretend that this can be sold with just business as usual and some technical solutions there will not be any solutions or plans presented in line with these figures here today because these numbers are too uncomfortable and you are still not mature enough to tell it like it is you are failing us but the young people are starting to understand your betrayal the eyes of all future generations are upon you and if you choose to fail us I say we will never forgive you we will not let you get away with this right here right now is where we draw the line the world is waking up and change is coming whether you like it or not carbon emissions are rising and faster than most scientists predicted but many climate change alarmist seem to claim that all climate change is worse than expected this ignores that much of the data is actually more encouraging than expected yes Arctic sea ice is melting faster than models expected but models also predicted that and Arctic sea ice would decrease yet and Arctic sea ice is increasing yes sea levels are rising that the rice is not accelerating if anything to reach papers one by Chinese scientist published in January 2014 and the other by US scientist published in May 2013 have shown a small decline in the rate of sea level increase we’re often being told that we’re seeing more and more droughts but a study published March 2014 in the journal Nature actually shows a decrease in the world’s surface that has been afflicted by droughts since 1982 facts like these are important because a one side focus on worst-case stories is a poor foundation for sound policies hurricanes are likewise used as an example of things getting worse but look at the US where we have the best statistics if we adjust for population and wealth hurricane damage during the period of 1900 to 2013 actually decreased slightly at the UN climate conference in Lima Peru in December 2014 attendees were told that their countries should cut carbon emissions to avoid future damage from storms like typhoon hagupit which had the Philippines during the conference killing at least 21 people and forcing more than a million into shelters yet the trend for strong typhoons around the Philippines have actually declined since 1950 according to study published in 2012 by the Journal of climate again we’re told that all things are getting worse but the facts don’t support this this does not mean global warming is not real or a problem but the one-sided story of alarmism makes us lose focus if we want to help the world’s poor who are the most threatened by natural disasters it’s less about cutting carbon emissions than it is about pulling them out of poverty the best way to see this is to look at the world’s death from natural disasters over time in the oxford university database for death rates from floods extreme temperatures droughts and storms the average in the first part of last century was more than a hundred and thirty dead every year per million people since then the death rates have dropped 97% to new low in the 2010 of less than 4 per million the dramatic decline is mostly due to economic developments that help nations withstand catastrophes if you’re rich like Florida a major hurricane might cost plenty of damage to expensive buildings but it kills few people and causes only a temporary dent in economic output if a similar hurricane hits a poorer country like the Philippines of Guatemala it kills many more people and can devastate the economy so let’s be clear climate change is not worse than we thought that doesn’t mean it’s not a reality or not a problem it is but the narrative that the world’s climate is changing from bad to worse is unhelpful alarmism that prevent us from focusing on smart solutions a well-meaning environmentalist might argue that because climate changes of reality why not ramp up the rhetoric and focus on the bad news to make sure the public understands its importance but that’s exactly what we’ve done for the past 20 years yet despite dramatic headlines apocalyptic documentaries and annual climate summits carbon emissions continue to rise especially in rapidly developing countries like India China and many African nations alarmism has encouraged the pursuit of a one-sided climate policy of trying to cut carbon emissions by subsidizing wind farms and solar panels yet today according to the International Energy Agency only about 0.4% of global energy consumption comes from solar photovoltaics and windmills and even with exceptionally optimistic assumptions about future deployment of wind and solar the International Energy Agency expects that these energy forms will provide a minuscule 2.2 percent of the world’s energy by 2040 in other words for at least the next two decades solar and wind energy are simply expensive feel-good measures that will have an imperceptible climate impact instead we should focus on investing in research and development of green energy to lower its costs so everyone will want it including China and India we urgently need a more balanced climate conversation if we ought to make sensible choices and pick the right climate policy that can actually help fix climate

I agree that we need more research on green energy to make it better and cheaper. Taxing carbon emission can provide that fund at the same time cut down CO2 emission. We can do both decreasing green house gas emission and improve on green energy tech. They are not mutually exclusive.

Sea levels haven’t dipped at all actually and are still on the rise. Category 4’s and 5’s are common yearly when they should be rare.
2050 date and why do they keep changing
These dates are taken from assuming we keep our rates at a certain amount. It also isn’t like all of a sudden in 2048,2049, and 2050 the world ends. No it’s saying the no go back zone where feedback loops fire up which will start warming out of our control.
How about China and India?
China and India could care less. We need to change the market so it’s better off for them to go more green ie by developing more green resources or by having companies just dislike carbon emitting companies
Solutions?
I really don’t know. We can hope that economists and scientist collaborate on a bill. Since politicans are not professional scientist nor economists who have 10+ years of experience in the field with professional level of education. Maybe a carbon tax but that gets you all raddled up. Add it only for corporations. It gets up streamed meaning the parent company must pay it all. Give companies a head start on this and it’s only green house emissions. Of course remove farmers and oil companies since they always rely on it but if they use trucks that emit CO2 then the oil company can be taxed for it.
How much of an issue is it?
Not a big one now but will be later on. So we might as well fix it before it snowballs on us. Literally the younger generation is being so alarmist about it is because they know they’re gonna see the chaotic mess. Your generation have done much really and only sided with the oil companies. The younger generations don’t want to as we realized “Huh. A lot of renowned and highly certified scientists are saying this is an issue that can snowball on us later down the line and we might be there”.
Alarmist!
Now the climate crisis seems like a huge problem, eh? Well it could be. It’s long term. It’s gradual. We struggle with that as a species. Understanding long term effects. We should fix it now than leave it to other generations to deal with a problem that most likely grew larger.

Stuff I’m unsure of:

The Arctic would melt of course since it is up north or some reason due to Antartica always being colder and more extreme. So that would explain why it is not melting yet

The climate changed 3 times today in my town it was 76 at 7am 90 at 3pm and 70 at 9pm big increase in heat but the earth survived. Keep fighting Mother Nature while conservatives will focus on keeping the environment clean and not pollute by leaving 1000’s of pounds of protest signs lying on the streets after a climate march

The main objective of the Climate Change movement
is the indoctrination

of children into Marxist – Globalist ideology. Here we have the poster child,

the good news is that most of these kids will grow up, gain logic and common

Haha ikr, because why would childeren who are seeing the world that they will live in for the rest of their lives being destroyed do something. No way, us kids would totally rather sit at home at play fortnite than fight to help save our future. Honestly y'all are a joke, it's like you expect a dying animal to just sit there and accept their fate, no, they would fight for their life! That is what the kids are doing, fighting for our lives, because we fear for our lives.

The real problem, is in the middle. I think the hysteria of these kids is somehow on point, but I think we should be careful not to go from one side to another, when the governments will use this to harm human rights… Indeed the society is very not really climate friendly with all the legislation that has been changed towards combating climate change.

I cannot wrap my head around the fact that there are actual adults eating this up. This girl is naive, thinks she is doing a great job empowered by morrons who in her eyes must be seeing it right. So she thinks her mental breakdown over this nonsense is legit. But the people who are actually impressed by this and think of her as some sort of messiah. They are the true dumb ones. Omg what is wrong with these people…

La realidad es que a los poderes de turno les encanta crear crisis artificiales, a fin de obtener de ellas jugosos provechos políticos y económicos. No debería sorprendernos que, en un futuro cercano, se comience a postular la idea de que, criar carne animal para el consumo humano, antagoniza con la sana ecología global. ¿Para que harían tal cosa los poderes de turno? Pues para justificar el imponer impuestos exorbitantes sobre los millones de ciudadanos que consumen carne animal. De paso, este era precisamente el modelo económico del antiguo imperio Romano; o sea que, a pesar de nuestra moderna tecnología, los Occidentales nos las hemos arreglado para volver a pensar [y actuar] como en la Roma del año 200 de la era Cristiana! ¿Que hacia el imperio Romano? Pues este ultimo creaba una crisis, y luego forzaba a los ciudadanos a pagar por su solución. Un buen ejemplo de ello podría ser lo que sucedía entre el gobierno Romano, y el liderato Judío del 200 AD. Tal y como sucede con nuestros modernos gobiernos Occidentales, los Romanos creían en el concepto de “igualdad”. Y esta alegada “igualdad” era el pretexto que utilizaban para forzar a los Judíos a participar de cada una de las fiestas Romanas. ¿Como lo hacían? Pues demandando que la casa del Patriarca Judío (Judah Ha-Nasi) presentase [en cada una de las fiestas paganas] un becerro para el sacrificio. La idea era que, como la religión Judía prohibía la idolatría, pues la crisis ideológica que tal imposición creaba, forzaba al Patriarca a pagar una fuerte suma de dinero [de nuevo, en cada una de las fiestas], a fin de que los Judíos fuesen eximidos de tan grave conflicto religioso. Así las cosas, por el privilegio de no presentar el becerro en el día de la fiesta [sino en el próximo día], el Patriarca debía pagar 40,000 monedas [de oro]. Por el privilegio de no presentar el becerro vivo, sino muerto, debía pagar 40,000 monedas adicionales. Y por el privilegio de no presentar becerro alguno, debía pagar 40,000 monedas adicionales (¡un total de 120,000 monedas de oro por cada una de las fiesta!). Así las cosas, la alegada “igualdad” de la cual los Romanos se ufanaban tanto de ser Paladines, no era sino un ingenioso ardid, cuya secreta intención en realidad era proveer una conveniente excusa para justificar el saqueo y la opresión de las masas incautas.
