"I honestly don't know why adults would spend their time mocking and threatening teenagers and children for promoting science when they could do something good instead. I guess they must simply feel so threatened by us."......Greta Thunberg's tweet of Sep 25!

I have no ill will towards Greta and do believe her message is an important one; but her message at the United Nations was much too disrespectful. Persuasiveness is a much more powerful tool than indignation is. That is what scares me about the political and cultural climate in America right now. It seems that everyone treats those on the other side as either fools or evil incarnate. This does not lead to productive dialogue that could eventually lead to positive changes.


Teenagers are rarely persuasive to adults. They don't have the intellect, experience, resources or social-clout to bend minds. But they have emotion in droves.

And it is just as ridiculous now as when she “tweeted” it.

I wonder why?
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Not sure that I’d call her a nazi, but she’s definitely buying into something.

Okay so people think she's being forced to say she wants a cleaner planet? And the downside to a cleaner planet is ..?
Oh no what a nefarious plot... what if we end up with breathable air and drinkable water? The horror...

Then why do they spend their time mocking and threatening teenagers and children for promoting science when they could do something good instead?

Do you mean good, like promoting abortions of children to save the planet?

How dare you not mention population control!


Not to mention Nelloptodes gretae, which is less than 1mm long and has no eyes or wings.

"And the winner of this years Nobel Peace Prize is..." Abiy Ahmed.

Maybe talking and thinking about THIS guy,...and what he is trying to do,
would be...'Nobel-er'.

He's been at it, for some time now.
He's really struggling.
I wish him well.

What are all these famines in Ethiopia? What are they about? They're about too many people for too little land. That's what it's about.

What we need is a redistribution of wealth upwards to the 1% to save the planet: the 1% could then afford well maintained vast country estates while the 99% could die off in the overcrowded slums of the cities.
