TIME Names Greta Thunberg ‘Person Of The Year’

    Update (0930ET): President Trump’s son has chimed in on TIME’s decision to name Greta Thunberg as Person of the Year, noting a significant ‘other’ that are fighting for their lives too…

    “Time leaves out the Hong Kong Protesters fighting for their lives and freedoms to push a teen being used as a marketing gimmick. How dare you?”

    While many among the resistance must have been hoping for “The Whistleblower” to be crowned, TIME Magazine has instead named 16-year-old climate-alarmist Greta Thunberg as “Person of the Year.”

    The shortlist included Rudy Giuliani, Megan Rapinoe, President Trump, and Nancy Pelosi…

    But, as she lambasts world leaders at the Madrid Climate Summit for using “clever accounting and creative PR” to make it look like they are taking firm action in the fight against climate change.

    “Our leaders are not behaving as though we were in an emergency,” said the teenager.

    Seeming to say that the world’s elite are as good as murdering children by their lack of panic…

    “If there’s a child standing in the middle of the road and cars are coming at full speed, you don’t look away because it is too uncomfortable. You immediately run out and rescue that child.

    “And without that sense of urgency, how can we, the people, understand that we are facing a real crisis.”

    TIME has decided that the 16-year-old from Sweden, who was also nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize in March, is the Person of the Year…

    “She became the biggest voice on the biggest issue facing the planet this year, coming from essentially nowhere to lead a worldwide movement,” TIME Editor-in-Chief Edward Felsenthal said on TODAY Wednesday.

    In a dramatic and lengthy diatribe, TIME heralds ‘Greta’ as a messiah-like figure who knows all and should be listened to…

    “We can’t just continue living as if there was no tomorrow, because there is a tomorrow,” she says, tugging on the sleeve of her blue sweatshirt.

    “That is all we are saying.”

    It’s a simple truth. TIME argues, delivered by a teenage girl in a fateful moment.

    Unless they agree on transformative action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the world’s temperature rise since the Industrial Revolution will hit the 1.5°C mark—an eventuality that scientists warn will expose some 350 million additional people to drought and push roughly 120 million people into extreme poverty by 2030. For every fraction of a degree that temperatures increase, these problems will worsen. This is not fearmongering; this is science.

    “This moment does feel different,” former Vice President Al Gore, who won the Nobel Peace Prize for his decades of climate advocacy work, tells TIME.

    “Throughout history, many great morally based movements have gained traction at the very moment when young people decided to make that movement their cause.”

    The award comes a day after  Brazil’s President Bolsonaro blasted the teenage girl as a “brat” over her comments regarding deforestation in the Amazon.

    For an alternative perspective on the teen, Ricochet’s Jon Gabriel previously noted that every week, the rhetoric is ramped up:

    “Surviving climate change means an end to burning fossil fuels.

    Prepare yourself for sacrifices,” the LA Times warns.

    The Guardian writes, “World ‘gravely’ unprepared for effects of climate crisis.”

    For the New Yorker, it’s already too late: “What if We Stopped Pretending the Climate Apocalypse Can Be Stopped?”

    And ‘Greta’ is the face of that scaremongering.

    Our increasingly anxious kids deserve better. Daily prophecies of global annihilation are deeply unhealthy, not to mention unsupported by the vast majority of research. Even if you accept that human activity is heating the globe, relatively few scientists are predicting the end of the world in 12 years or 17 months.

    What Thunberg’s parents are doing to her borders on child abuse. Hyping increasingly apocalyptic claims is spreading that abuse to every other young person.

    And when was the last time you heard the teen slamming China?

        She is a fraud and controlled opposition. How do I know? Because if she was genuinely a curious young woman who could use Google to research the state of the environment, then she would have found out within a few days the world’s biggest polluters are as follows:

        1) The Pentagon: the US military burns more oil and gas than any other entity on the planet

        2) China: they are the biggest global polluter as a country

        3) Pretty well every other major third world country since they all burn the dirtiest fuels. Don’t get me started on India, which is a seething cesspit of filth and environmental degradation, not to mention the lack of any hygiene.

        Yet Greta hassles people in the West who are the cleanest and least polluting people.

        ‘Daily prophecies of (shtf) are deeply unhealthy.’
        ‘Hyping increasingly (shtf) claims is spreading that abuse to every other young person.’

        I have never personally seen a bargain, in real life, where you cooperate in good faith, so are in a position to cover all over your social obligations, comfortably. I think, when hundreds of job applicants overwhelm each opening, that is a sign of carrying capacity having long since been exceeded, no matter what is your radicalized, political bent.

        I did not think Time was still in business
        Obviously they too are very slow learners as is all the MSM.

        What we need is a complete blow out in 2020 to crush the liberal ideology that is leading to the destruction of the USA

        She looks like someone I dated once. I used to f#$% the girl’s brains out and she was still a crazy bitch. What a waste.

        This smacks of advertising I saw on TV a few years ago featuring a child lecturing her father about switching to CFL light bulbs (LED bulbs like we have now weren’t ‘ready for prime time’ at that point). Of course, they portrayed the dad as a duffus and the child as some enlightened messiah.

        It’s as though they think mature adults can’t think for themselves and thus they need a CHILD to lecture them about how to do things. What’s sad is apparently these ads (propaganda) work, or they wouldn’t spend the money running them.

        I watch as little TV as possible, and other than the most essential news, I’ve cut way back on news sites as well.

        Stick a fork in this world – it’s done.

        what ??

        greta the i can see carbon monoxide coming out of smokestacks that greta ?

        or the same that used a multi million carbon fiber solar powered sail boat to travel from europe to new york U S A and then the real owner had to fly in a new crew to return it that Greta?

        or the same damaged child that is being pulled and used like a puppet just so that Bono al gore Bill gates and george soros can tell us all how to live for another few years

        some one needs to have a serious debate with her but not allow her to have her little pre scripted quotes and then just watch her have a major melt down

        the left is sick too use a brain damaged and her parents are even worse as they have another child with the exact same mental issues.

        but if you need any more reason to not believe a word she says look at who is handling her luisa marie neubauer a member of the One foundation this foundation is managed by BONO Bill Gates and george soros

        dont believe a single word she says

        look uo q army swiss division wide awake they have some interesting pics of little greta

        That poor, angry, malnourished looking kid is just being used as a tool to push their global warming BS to the masses. Yawn.

        I would love to know what the “late” Jeffrey Epstein would do with her. Epstein, as we know, used his sex trafficking network to blackmail politicians etc. To prop up the international system including the UN’s green projects such as his Madame Ghislaine Maxwell’s Miramar oceans charity.

        Has anyone shown Greta a newspaper with these stories? Maybe she would think twice about who she hangs out with (but I forget, Greta has learning difficulties).

        her demeanor suggest, that she is using global climate change as a release.
        her actual psychosis is much deeper seated.

        She is a paid actor who would get destroyed on Stoessel’s stage to debate this climate change horse sh*t

        The MSM through its tentacles create and nurture the narrative of popularity and popularity steers change. Pubic ownership and private ownership of the media are both ownership none the less. As bad as state control is private directed control has the same effect. The danger is in the control; who’s hands its in matter little.
