(Liberty Bell) – Climate alarmists would have you believe that scowl-faced teenage climate activist, Greta Thunberg is just an innocent teenager who has all the moral authority to lecture adults because she’s sad about the climate change her progressive modern education has clearly convinced her poses a catastrophic threat to her life.
The associations of the pint-sized activist are, of course, a dead giveaway. She, like so many of the climate alarmists of our day, has a decidedly far-left political agenda that has everything to do with tearing down the pillars of Western society and very little to do with life on this planet, except perhaps to dramatically reduce it.
In case there was any doubt that this Soros-backed radical was not remotely interested in the climate, except to impose harsh regulations in the name of the planet to suppress the freedom of billions, she has now made her position clear.
James Dellingpole reports for Breitbart that Thunburg recently declared:
It is a crisis of human rights, of justice, and of political will. Colonial, racist, and patriarchal systems of oppression have created and fueled it. We need to dismantle them all.
Greta the Climate Puppet goes full-Marxist:
"After all, the climate crisis is not just about the environment. It is a crisis of human rights, of justice, and of political will. Colonial, racist, and patriarchal systems of oppression have created and fueled it." https://t.co/mffeq9eAKP

To anyone familiar with the workings of the green movement, Greta’s statement will come as no surprise whatsoever.
That’s why I called my book on the subject Watermelons.
Environmentalists are often green on the outside, red on the inside. Their movement is essentially a global socialistic redistribution exercise hiding behind a mask of green righteousness.
Meanwhile, the consequences of little Greta’s hissy fits are being felt across Europe and hitting ordinary people hard.
He notes the failing car industry in Germany:
Daimler, the German company that makes Mercedes-Benz cars, will slash at least 10,000 jobs worldwide in a major cost-cutting drive to help finance the switch to electric cars.
“The total number worldwide will be in the five-digits,” said personnel chief Wilfried Porth. More than 1,000 managers stand to lose their jobs.
And the UK:
Production this year is down by 14 per cent on the same period in 2018. The only month to rise was August, when output was artificially raised because many plants were shut in the same month a year earlier.
“Yet another month of falling car production makes these extremely worrying times for the sector,” said SMMT chief executive Mike Hawes.
He also notes that Germany’s electricity prices have skyrocketed.
Still, “yet again the latest UN Climate Summit – COP25 – which Greta Thunberg is attending is destined to be a damp squib, with lots of scaremongering talk and little concerted action.”
“Any carbon dioxide emissions cuts it agrees on will be more than offset by the growth of Chinese industry,” he notes.
And with most of the West so eager to destroy its industrial capacity just because an annoying little girl in pigtails got radicalised by watching Ice Age 2, is it any wonder that China treats it with such ill-disguised contempt.
