Because...it simply does not fit their climate change agenda....so if it is not reported then it can't really be happening....can it??

Re: The weather around the world has gone mad

What’s even more sinister, and why I despise the BBC (does it show?), is that, despite being a clearly hilarious story, it won’t get a mention on any of the BBC so-called comedy shows on the radio.

Exile, it only shows as much as my hatred of the EU and politicians in this country shows.....which isn't really that much....is it?

Re: The weather around the world has gone mad

The people around the world have gone mad
…. and you can get into trouble for calling the obviously mad mad.

If Greta Thunberg's minders/mentors/controllers/puppeteers are earnest in their beliefs then surely they should address their concerns towards the three major culprits....

China, India, Global Over Population

Changes to those may make a difference

Me forking out additional £1000s for a souped up dodgem car that might just take me to the shops and back or paying well over the odds for "renewable" energy ain't going to make a rat's fart towards climate change.
The reticence of the Thunberg camp to address the obvious problems leads one to believe they hold a different agenda altogether.

Re: The weather around the world has gone mad

If Greta wants to get the message across then she needs to learn to speak Chinese.

How dare she not do so!

Quite agree.

How do you imagine China would deal with such demonstrations?

She is targeting the wrong people...and I do not for one moment think this girl has either researched or thought of these things herself.
She should be directing 'How Dare You' comments to her parents.
They are the ones who have robbed her of her childhood.
Her future is up to her.

The electric car thing is a fudge too, because unless someone comes up with a sure fire way to generate electric(other than burning fossil fuel)....then come the time when these vehicles are the 'norm' there will not be the capacity to boil the kettle for a cup of tea.

The other issue I have with these forms of transport is that the manufacture of batteries to power them is far from 'green'....but nobody ever mentions that.

These Eco warriors would have us go back to the dark ages....living in caves, eating uncooked berries and seeds(no fires allowed...they add to climate change).

On each of the protest marches I have seen, these young idealistic people are using iPhones, I bet most of them go on holiday, but yet they tell me( who was recycling before the word was thought of) that this climate change is MY fault.
After the marches they leave a heap of rubbish behind them for someone else to deal with....very Eco friendly.....bloody hypocrites

No need for batteries - just extend the overhead electrified mesh from the dodgems at Blackpool Pleasure Beach to cover the whole country. It's about as practical as many of the other so called solutions even if it would take up most of the world's copper supplies just to cover the Fylde Coast.

What riled me about the Thunberg thing was how despicable those who control her are. Criticism is not allowed because you are 'attacking a child' in spite of their parents stating she has mental health issues and in spite of most 16 year olds (who are old enough to legally procreate) not wishing to be called child....

Re: The weather around the world has gone mad

I read that St. Greta of Thurnberg, the patron saint of idiocy, was specifically chosen by those who control her because she has Asbergers.
There was a essay competition in Sweden for school children about climate change and she came second. But maybe the winner wasn’t so telegenic or malleable, and StGreta’s parents are political activists, so she was selected to be the child prophet of doom, on the understanding that sceptics would be very reluctant to shout down a child with asbergers.

Re: The weather around the world has gone mad

Btw, we’re in upstate NY this week. On Wednesday it was 84F degrees on the shores of Lake Ontario. On Thursday it was 45F. Today it’s 65F.
That’s what I call climate change.
We’re all doomed, aye, we’re doomed.

If this 'child' cannot stand the scrutiny and the criticism then she is clearly not mature enough to be in the arena that her parents have thrust her into.

On the video clip one commentator derides another for 'attacking a child'.
He fails to get the point that, no...it is not the child who is being attacked but her ludicrous point of view.
She is seeing the world through the very narrow prism of her limited life experience.

Who, at 16 did not think they knew everything there was to know?

It is only when we have lived a bit and seen what life is about that we realise how foolish we were.

I am sick of the virtue signalling pseudo-religion that climate change has become.

And this girl is really not the one who should bear the blame.
It is her activist parents who really should be called to account for putting this child under the spotlight.

It's akin to problems with a troublesome dog in the park - it's not the dog's faults, it's the owners

Just read this, and thought some on here may like to read it too.

Re: The weather around the world has gone mad

I agree with every word of that article....and like Brexit, Extinction Rebellion puts my blood pressure up by ten points(at least).

I was so pleased yesterday to see these folk being drowned by the torrential rain, huddling together in their polyester tents(very Eco friendly).


If I had my way I would fill a fire engine with indelible green dye and spray the lot of them.

It would take weeks to wash off their skin.....at least we would all know who they were if they go back to ordinary jobs

I doubt very much that many of them have ordinary jobs, or any jobs at all.
