    Greta took away President Trump's Time "Person of the Year" award, so he sent this tweet:

    "Greta must work on her Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend!" Trump wrote of teenage climate crisis activist Greta Thunberg. "Chill Greta, Chill!"

    Greta is a 16-year-old climate activist with Asperger's Syndrome.

    Isn't it below the office of the President of the United States to behave this way? Shouldn't we expect more?

    It's almost as bad as that time when the POTUS convinced one of his interns to perform oral sex on him.

      She's a puppet, like so many puppets in the past.  Her arrogance is beyond comprehension - she's uneducated on the subject, she's immature, and she's not a spokesperson for the world.  Throughout history the worst tyrants on earth have used darling little girls with pigtails to preach hate, subversion, and control.....save me the boo-hoo speech that the President shut her down - she brings nothing but hate and anger to the table so she gets it in return....

        You could say the same about your chosen leader, except he isn't near as mature as Greta, Ralph. But I cannot picture him in pigtails, although I can see him slopping around in a pig trough. tongue

        One of my friends posted a FB message about this, too.  But when a child (and her parents) decide to enter the adult world and participate in adult activities and discussion then she is open to the same rebuttals any adult would get.

        Doesn't excuse Trumps words, though - he was out of line whether Greta was 6, 16, or 60.  Her being a child wasn't what was wrong, and him treating her as the adult she is professing to be wasn't either.

      This "climate change is a hoax" might as well be "science is a hoax". This is the kind of idiocy that makes it impossible for me to ever take the Right seriously. Anyone who says this doesn't have a basic comprehension of scientific principles. Hey, science is a hoax! This from the same people that brought us Pizzagate and Inaugural Crowdgate.

      You can argue with the proposed resolution. I have no problem with that. Nobody is suddenly going to stop driving their car. But to say it's a hoax shows an incredible lack of comprehension and intelligence.

          There's no other side. There is no other side to a scientific fact. This is all propaganda. If somebody doesn't understand the basic science, then I might as well try explaining the science to a monkey because I'll have the same success. You might as well argue that the earth is flat (something about 1/4 of people believe) or that the sun orbits the earth (something people also believe).

          This sort of ignorance of basic scientific principles is so dangerous, I couldn't even begin to describe it, so I won't try.

                Can there be an "other side" to the conclusions, extrapolations and predictions arising from that basic scientific principle, particularly when that principle is only one of a whole raft of principles in play - a mixture we have only scratched the surface of understanding?

                  There is always another side. Like I said, there's another side to the theory of gravity, the theory of heliocentricity, and the theory of the round earth. Do you believe any of those?

                  Somebody who tells me climate change theory is "a hoax" is a person with very few analytical skills not worthy of my time, much like a monkey or a child.

                  If you want to say stuff like "technology will sort this out" or "we're overreacting", that is entirely different.

                    Deflection or misunderstanding?  Or total faith in computer models that consistently fail?

                    As CO2 levels rise, will a latent, dormant gene in some or all plants kick into high gear, giving higher growth rates and removing more CO2 from the atmosphere?

                    We're losing atmosphere all the time - will more CO2 have an effect on how much and what elements are lost?  How will that affect the atmosphere?

                    As CO2 levels in the ocean increase, what will happen to plant life there?  Will it grow further beneath the surface or will the need for sunlight still trump the air needs?  As we've never seen it it seems rather unlikely that we can have an answer.

                    Will higher levels, and the resulting acidic oceans, lakes and rivers result in higher erosion, tying up CO2 (or O2 or C) in mineral formations?

                    The point is that we do not understand any but the very beginnings of climate change: to think we can make accurate predictions of global climate with only a smattering of knowledge of what goes into it is ludicrous. And that shows up in the gross failures of predictions as to what will happen.

          And if you want, I can find an outlier scientist somewhere who believes the earth is flat and another who thinks the sun revolves around the earth. Is that all you need to believe those two assertions? Anyone who believes Lindzen, based on the evidence, has to be somebody who cannot form logical thoughts or opinions well.

      Greta repeatily said that she not a scientists. She asks everyone to go to the 97% scientists for answers in which they will approve Greta's message anyways.

      She writes her own scripts with her parents help. Who she had to drag them into climate change practice a few years ago.  So she educated them, on the importance, like an adult and mature person. She claims her handicap is her superpower, as she can not lie. Unlike Trump superpower as a career liar.

      Lawyers and media more often suck, yet sometimes they get something right. Exspecially when they are forced by 80% of the concioussness of the public. The priority in human life is to survive, hopefully thrive. There is nothing more important in life as the health of the planet and your own health. Otherwise, you have nothing. Health is wealth.

          She says human activities are contributing to global warming, but she bridles at the IPCC consensus that humans are "largely responsible" — in other words, that more than 50 percent of global warming to date is caused by human activity.

            I think I know what Greta is experiencing just there.
            In one year I performed in China, holland, Ohio State fair, CNE , Oklahoma State fair, Winterlude Ottawa and a dozen others as the major features with a combine crowds of 18 million people. I was so exhausted,  I was so brain-dead my speeches got sloppy and absence minded.

            Greta has set a world record for the largest crowds ever. Mostly from people who took time off work to be part of
            largest natural environmental protest in world history.

            She has made dozens of great speeches and the best ones I have ever heard in my lifetime of importance since JFK Kennedy.  Greta is now taking some well deserved time off.

            BS on puppeteer running her, nobody except parttime
            her parents helped. Nobody would be able with asound mind. To Give so many correct answer to, if it didn't come from her own mind.

          I´m not quite sure memes are so innocent GA. Lies spread faster then the truth and memes are simplifying things and shutting of a conversation.
          They stop critical thinking. No matter the political or social point of view.

                That is a valid perspective. I have another, I think of that old adage that "A picture is worth a thousand words', where the poster of the meme feels it says what they would say if they typed it out.

                Of course, there are dumb and not-brilliantly designed memes that some may use because they don't really have anything to say, but those are not the ones I meant when I spoke of some memes sparking good discussions.

          Each and every country of the world is looking forward to eradicating poverty so that even the poor and vulnerable people also enjoy equal rights to economic resources, healthy living conditions as well as access to basic infrastructure. No doubt that poor nations and poor people are more severely vulnerable to effects of environmental damage than the rich.

          Over the past few decades, average living standards have risen and the gap between the very rich and the very poor has broadened. More often than not, many international reports claim that poverty contributes to environmental degradation. Due to lack of sufficient resources and improper knowledge poverty-stricken people tend to overuse every resource available to them when their survival is at stake. But generally, we tend to forget that poor people are the most undefended ones when it comes to the effects of environmental pollution, climate change and global warming.

          All economic activities are directly, indirectly or remotely based on natural resources and any pressure on natural resources can cause environmental stress. Environmental damage can prevent people, especially the poor, from having good and hygienic living standards. As poor people rely more directly on the environment than the rich for their survival, they are mostly on the receiving end of environmental problems.more pressure on the environment which results in larger families (due to high death rates and insecurity), improper human waste disposal leading to unhealthy living conditions, more pressure on fragile land to meet their needs, overexploitation of natural resources and more deforestation. Insufficient knowledge about agricultural practices can also lead to a decline in crop yield and productivity etc.


          Environmental problems add more to the miseries of poor people. Environmental problems cause more suffering among them as environmental damage increases the impact of floods and other environmental catastrophes. Soil erosion, land degradation and deforestation lead to a decline in food production along with a shortage of wood for fuel contribute to inflation. In short, the worst consequences of environmental deterioration, whether they be economical, social, or related to mental or physical wellbeing, are experienced by poor people.

          More rigorous efforts should be undertaken by the governments of all countries to eradicate poverty and in turn,

          to save deprived people from the dreadful people living in poverty are linked to the world through their participation in social, political, and economical spheres along with their active participation in environmental regeneration.

          I strongly believe that there cannot be any environmental solution without alleviating poverty from the world.

The rich and poor gap has broaden more than ever by Trump by of him giving too many breaks to the wealthy and not to the poor. He never says a word to the homeless that sit around his Trump Tower.  Trump is also the worst environmentist agree upon by environmentist.

                  No other President  like Trump has selected certain news media as fake news and bad for the public. That is according to Larry King that knew Trump for most of his life.

                    I dunno, Castle - it sounded (and still does with the comment about fake news) more like just another rant about the evils of Trump.

                    Certainly the gap between rich and poor does not produce poverty (you cannot create wealth by dividing it) and neither do claims of fake news.  Melania commenting on her being bullied does not create poverty and neither do silly claims that Trump is the worst environmentalist in the world.

                    You can't give a tax break to the poor as they do not participate in the needs of the country by paying taxes anyway.  So that, too, has nothing to do with poverty and the environment.

      What is more true, if the so called leaders of the world do nothing? Or we do something?

          From experience, I had to stop my snow sculptures and Ice hotels business.  That went on for 40 years professionally, yet due to global warming, it was ruined. A few ice projects I did were done in the Arctic. That part of the world has changed more than any area in the world, your assume science is BS.

          Good news, it's expanded my urban farming seasons in Canada by a month and a half. Bad new, some of the southern places of the world are burning up.

            According to the global warming people, every beach in the world will shortly be a flood zone.  When sea levels rise at one point they rise at every point on the planet, and it's going to rise several feet - enough to drown out every beach in the world.  Can you imagine what the Bay of Fundy is going to look like?  A horizontal Niagara Falls!

        The oceans are not going to rise. The water level of the oceans is rising.
        The ice on the north pole is not going to melt, it is melting.
        The temperature on earth is not going to rise, it is rising.
        And if you look at the scientific data, the rise of temperature, the rise of the sea level is increasing and not a natural phenomena.
        Scientific data is right. If it was not, other scientists would correct the data.
        But if 98 of the 100 climate specialist tell that we have a climate crisis. Then I trust the 98 specialist who agree on this instead of the other remains 2 who doesn’t agree.
        If I go to 100 doctors and 98 of them tell me that I’ve cancer and 2 tell me that I’m healthy then I trust the 98 and try to deal with the grave situation and do not stick my head in the sand.

      In addition to not understanding basic science, principles and data, the other clear problem you have is that you're being fed alarmist garbage from your biased news sources in order to make you scared and you buy it and then blame those alarmists when things don't happen, which is sort of like blaming Nostradamus for all the wrong predictions or your Tarot card reader for being wrong. Extremists are going to be wrong by definition.

      The temperature rise of the earth as a result of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is a fact and to call it b.s. is like calling gravity b.s. and it makes you look unbelievably dumb.

      I wonder how you expect to sway liberals to your point of view when your positions are based in pure ignorance and lack of basic education. So you and other conservatives go ahead and keep telling me how great Trump is out of one side of your mouth while also trying to convince me that Sandy Hook was a hoax and there's a child porn ring in the basement of some pizza shop from the other.

      You understand that it is the very nature of science to make predictions and to be wrong, but that being wrong about any one prediction does not negate the data upon which the prediction is being made?

      Many predictions have come true, but as is typical in science, the most extreme ones are the ones most likely to be wrong. If you focus on only the predictions that have not come true, then you are merely displaying your ignorance about science itself.

      Here is what the signs now say: "When they will completely disappear depends on how and when we act. One thing is consistent: the glaciers in the park are shrinking."

      What was wrong in the prediction was not that the glaciers will disappear, but the rate of melting.

        If you think “ the very nature of science to make predictions and to be wrong” you have no clue as to what science should be. The whole point of science is not to make predictions that are wrong and if the science is sound they won’t be. You have just destroyed the notion that anything you say about science has merit by expressing that one thought.

          a method of procedure that has characterized natural science since the 17th century, consisting in systematic observation, measurement, and experiment, and the formulation, testing, and modification of hypotheses.

            You said “ the very nature of science to make predictions and to be wrong” then you refer to scientific method to justify your statement. They are not the same. The nature of science is to provide theories which have been proven By diligent research, experimentation and establishment of facts or laws that therefore enable predictions to accurately be made every time. If “your science” produces false predictions and you call that result science you have no idea what the nature of science is. That is bad science. Scientific method is the approach to answering questions and drawing conclusions. If those conclusions are wrong the science is not settled. If the nature of science was to accept false conclusions (predictions) as “the nature of science” then you are saying science doesn’t have to be correct to be called science.

              You're welcome for the traffic.

              Scientists make hypotheses all the time. They do not always turn out to be right and some people focus on those things more than the science itself. Of course just generally making false statement is not science, but attempting to generate a hypothesis based on data and research (I don't know, like "if the earth continues to heat up, glaciers will melt") and being wrong by some factor and then being called out because your factor was incorrect but the basic assumption was correct - comes from people who don't understand how science works. In most of these situations, the underlying premise, the underlying science, is still correct.

              You are apparently somebody who doesn't think evolution is valid science and that the Bible is fact, so you're a loon.

          I think a debate is not posting pictures with one-liners. The climate crisis debate is not anymore about if it is real or not. (It is scientifically proven real.) The problem for a lot of people is to except that their first idea was wrong. And as it was wrongly made into a left-right thing, people who voted right find themselves in a difficult position to admit that they were wrong and to agree to a so called left point of view.
          The climate crisis is not a left or right wing choice. It is not a choice to make, as it is a scientific fact. Just as gravity is not a right or left issue but simply a scientific fact as well.

            It is real.  But the real questions are "how far will it go with current human activities" and "what will the result be if it does?"  As none of the predictions are even close to coming true, these are valid questions, unproven scientifically.

              Let me try to see things from omusonus point of view.

              Its not climate change that is the greatest killer, it's stupidity.
              Hell an adverage household air quality is 9 times more toxic than outside. We got oil made products and energy by Fossil fuel.

              So what if the average American life expectancy has dropped by two years, that's not me.

              So what if 90% of the big fish in the ocean are died or mammal weight wildlife of the earth is down to 4% weight mass. It cost too much money to hunt and fish anyways, guns are for killing people. We got all we need in chemical products meat at the stores along with bottled water from NJ.

              About 75% of the world trees are cut down. We got a hard concrete jungles to walk through daily. Who needs lungs of the earth or Beauty of nature. Cancer has increased 4 times, we got chemo as our main cure with a 2.3 success rate. Chemo is muster gas with even a Wilder side effects to trip on. You get to meet up with other sicko who l
              are heavy into drugs along with cute nurses. So what if the the medical profession is the leading cause of death, who really cares anyways.

              Who needs Hitler Greta, when Trump will take care of you personally. Because Trump and billionaire R US. mafia family will honestly take care of you and us.
              Go back to sleep and continue the America dream, because you don't have to be awake to experience it.

      Before you post something, it's better to check if it's accurate. This tweet is fake news. Greta Thunberg is writing her own Facebook posts.
      A guy in India started a Facebook page as he was a fan. She is now posting on his Facebook page. Nothing wrong with one Facebook page and two administrators.

        Thank you. This "fact" is important for several "truths":

        1) Memes are often lies designed to elicit intense feelings about a person or topic
        2) Some people don't care whether a meme is true as long as it serves their purpose.
        3) Greta T. is the victim of a smear campaign because thoughtfully discussing climate science and what it is currently telling us is viewed by some people to be a losing proposition. Attacking a person is much more effective, in their view.

          A lot of people who disagree with Greta become frustrated as it is difficult to attack her. As she considers herself only the messenger. All she is saying is; listen to the scientist and act upon it.
          But her critics don’t want to be in a dialogue with scientists as they will lose it or even worse feel out of their depth. The potential impotence makes politicians and other people (especially men) angry. Even worse if the message is brought by a girl/women. (Who is she to lecture us!! - crystal clear in the message of the bartender / school drop-out meme.)

            It is exposing middle age men bs and disquise, is why they are so angry.

            I apologize to my younger generations for dropping the ball, when I was a flower power hippy for the natural environment. I got caught up  being a boomer rich and famous and all the stuff that surrounded me was not making me happy. I was livinging my dreams, except people surrounding me were not and were suffering, I can't be happy with that. 

            The greatest killer and suffering in the world  today is the natural environment and poverty. Picked up the ball again and actually happy with being of true service again. These world leaders should be ashamed and angry with themselves, it's a great start.

              That's great to hear Paloma.
              The world is changing big time. And I think many people have problems with adjusting. We can't live as we used to with a disposable society. Buying plastic stuff and throwing it away. Driving diesel SUV's and fly for cheap. Producing tons of meat.
              There is a lot that simply has to change. And it is tough to deny a person his hamburger and car. These well fought for liberties are now a burden.
              Things will change the next 10/20 years, and the extreme right is roaring as they find themselves set in a corner. And many conservative people are getting more conservative as they fear the change.
              People are reluctant to change in general, but we have to. If not the world will wither and die.

                I would agree with all your post...except the meat.  The human animal evolved to eat meat and while it is possible to do without and maintain health and development it is very difficult.

                    The problem with meat and dairy products is the huge amount of methane  thats thrown into the world. Same with rice paddies. Both products have an incredible carbon footprint. You don’t have to become vegetarian but it would help a huge amount if everybody only ate meat once a week for example.
                    Another option could be growing meat in factories. Instead of feeding and “taking care” of animals..

    Greta writes her own stuff, because she would be unable to respond to, so many and so correctly for so many questions asked. She always gives the most credit to professional scientist  who are either standing by for response or backs her up. She is honest to a fault.

    Unlike Trump, a world champion of lies.  He pulls things from his a_s and if you don't praise him for it. He will ethier ignor you or bully you in response. Scientists won't touch Trump with a toxic radiation active 10 foot Pole.

          I did not take it as a joke. I took it as a comparison of an almost young woman who is being portrayed as a small child. Who seems to me, to be brainwashed by liberal parents. Who appears to be acting, badly. Claiming her childhood has been lost, because the world is ending. A spoiled 17 year old, taking advantage of what a modern world provides but hypocritically decrying it at the same time. In contrast to a real child that has to eke out a basic survival existence.

            PhoenixV I do not think that that Greta Thunberg is more or less “brainwashed” then you or me. Actually, her parents where not really enthusiastic about her plan when she said she wanted to do a school strike for climate actions.
            She has an opinion and a strong message and she is using social media to tell this message to the world. A much more important message then Kim Kardashian who is using social media too, don’t you agree?

              It appears you are conceding that a meme has not offended the Great Oracle and Keeper of the Truth, as you suggested earlier. Otherwise we would not be quietly...moving on.

              To the best of my recollection, Kim had a strong social media presence even before Facebook and Twitter. That took foresight and a tremendous amount of work. Our dear Greta is a synthetic prop. Pretty sad to admit that by comparison, Greta is the superficial one twixt the two.
