Swedish teen activist Greta Thunberg said Tuesday that US President Donald Trump’s climate change denialism was “so extreme” that it had helped galvanize the movement to halt long term planetary warming.
She spoke in an interview with AFP on the eve of her departure from North America where she has spent almost three months.
“He’s so extreme and he says so extreme things, so I think people wake up by that in a way,” the 16-year-old said from on board a sailboat preparing to depart from the East Coast town of Hampton, Virginia for Europe early Wednesday.
‘Believe in climate change as though it’s religion and not a science’
HIRONO: “And the third is, leaving our comfort zone and for a lot of us, protesting, marching, that’s not something that we normally do, but, you know what? These are times that call for us to do those things that we believe in and to march and not just to march, because that’s important to show solidarity, but then to do those things such as voter registration, get people to— out to vote so that we can have people here who truly are committed to human rights and environmental rights, climate change, believe in climate change as though it’s religious and not a science, and all the things that remains to be done and there’s a lot.”
“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,” Thunberg said Monday in front of the General Assembly.
Swedish Researcher Pushes Eating Human Flesh as Answer to Future Climate Change Food Shortages
At a summit for food of the future (the climate-ravaged future) called Gastro Summit, in Stockholm Sept 3-4, a professor held a powerpoint presentation asserting that we must “awaken the idea” of eating human flesh in the future, as a way of combatting the effects of climate change.
In a talk titled “Can you Imagine Eating Human Flesh?” behavioral scientist and marketing strategist Magnus Söderlund from “Handelshögskolan” (College of Commerce) argues for the breaking down of the ancient taboos against desecrating the human corpse and eating human flesh.
Immediately after the debate political pundits criticized the presidential candidate for saying that people should start moving away from the coast since it will only get warmer in a few years no matter how well we do on curbing emissions.
“The important number in this is 15 percent of global emissions,” said Yang. “We like to act as if we’re 100 percent. Even if we were to curb our emissions dramatically, the Earth is going to get warmer. The last four years have been the four warmest years in history. We are too late. We are 10 years too late.”
