The two-week UN climate conference has now come to an end in Poland. And what good is a big UN conference without some serious propaganda?
So the final message from this conference was, as far as I can tell, that the children of the world have accepted the now-official twelve year "tipping point" to save the world, and are demanding that the adults "take action." Above is a photo from the Washington Post showing a group of Polish teenagers going on "#CLIMATESTRIKE" because there are only "12 YEARS LEFT".
Didn't these poor kids read the October 11 Manhattan Contrarian post about climate "tipping points"? If they had, they would have known that the tipping points have already passed. For example, Al Gore has already officially told us that the planetary "point of no return" was reached in 2016; James Hansen (of NASA) has already officially told us that the year when the "West Side Highway will be under water" was 2008; UN IPCC head Rajendra Pachauri had already officially announced that after 2012 it was "too late" to stop climate catastrophe; and head of UN Foundation Timothy Wirth had already told us that 2012 would be our "last chance" to save the planet. Yes kids, I'm sorry to have to tell you, but we're already doomed. So what's the point of setting another "tipping point”? We're already tipped. I recommend that you go out and enjoy an ice cream cone.
If you want to see something even worse, check out this Twitter tag #climatestrike. Scroll a little down to find the speech delivered by Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg, with high moral dudgeon. It's really creepy.
