There’s not a “climate crisis,” but there is a mental health crisis happening.
Thousands of gullible and impressionable young people have bought into the climate kook hysteria. They believe the junk science that is being spoon-fed to them by radical activists, opportunistic politicians, and creepy climate change teens like Greta Thunberg.
These young people actually believe that the world is on the verge of extinction and if they don’t fix it, everyone’s a goner.
Well, a group of these misguided “doomsdayers” gathered in Alberta, Canada, on Friday to support the climate strikes launched by 16-year-old Greta Thunberg.
However, this time it was a little different…counter-protesters representing the men and women who work in the oil and gas industry gathered and stood up to militant little Thunberg and her hordes of “weather-hating minions.”
“We care for the environment, of course we do,” a counter-protester said in a Daily Mail report. “What they need to understand is that we’re hurting and we also need to care about Alberta jobs.”
The Daily Mail report revealed how Thunberg’s and other activist’s ideas to completely transform the world’s energy infrastructure would hurt real people more than it would help the environment:
The honking horns of big rig trucks blared from a nearby thoroughfare, where vehicles emblazoned with ‘We love Canada energy’ signs were driving up and down.
“When they charged their iPhones last night, that power came from this plant,” he said, pointing to the former coal-fired Keephills power plant near Edmonton that was being converted to natural gas.
“Albertans and Canadians are practical people,’ he said. “They like real world solutions. Calling for the end of the modern industrial economy, advocating to put millions of people out of work… is not a real world solution.”
The Daily Mail reported that protesters were led by “indigenous drummers” and held signs with slogans, including “Be a Better Ancestor.”
“We cannot allow this crisis to continue to be a partisan, political question,” Thunberg said at the protest. “The climate and ecological crisis is far beyond party politics and the main enemy right now should not be any political opponents, because our main enemy is physics.”
“We are doing this because our future is at stake,” Thunberg said. “We will not be bystanders. We are doing this because we want the people in power to unite behind science.”
While Thunberg’s Fridays for Future movement calls for kids to cut classes every Friday to protest, the teen is taking months off from school to support demonstrations in the United States and Canada. She also plans to travel to Chile in December for another United Nations climate summit.
Thunberg came to the United States in August traveling from Europe to New York City on a state-of-the-art racing yacht that is solar- and wind-powered.
But her carbon-free trip has been criticized because the yacht’s crew flew by plane back and forth as part of the logistics for the journey, making a much greater “carbon footprint” than one girl traveling by plane would make. [Beitbart]
