Has the cult of Greta gone too far?

Child environmental activist Greta Thunberg has demanded world leaders do something about climate change since she began her school strikes outside the Swedish Parliament in 2018.

Since then, Greta has been invited to speak at TEDxSTockholm, the COP24 summit, Davos and the United Nations.

She has met world leaders including Pope Francis and featured in the controversial September 2019 issue of British Vogue, with the Duchess of Sussex as guest-editor.

Greta has inspired school children around the world to strike for climate change, including students in Tamworth who confronted Member for Tamworth, Kevin Anderson MP, as he was campaigning for re-election in the NSW Parliament.

In March 2019, Greta has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by representatives from the Swedish and Norwegian parliaments.

However, anyone who criticises Greta for her activism is accused of ‘hate and conspiracy campaigns’, especially Herald-Sun columnist and Sky News commentator Andrew Bolt for merely pointing out her claims on ‘climate change’ were wrong.

Andrew Bolt, on the other hand, was wondering why so many adults were treating a 16-year-old with Asperger’s Syndrome as a ‘guru’ – even likening her to a modern-day Joan of Arc.

Anyone criticising what Greta says is deemed a bully, even though her claims have no scientific basis, but spreading environmental catastrophism.

Even at one degree of warming, we are seeing an unacceptable loss of life and livelihoods.

Really? How would Greta cope in places like Walgett where it can get up to 50°C during the summer months.

At the United Nations Climate Action Summit in New York Greta has roused on world leaders for not acting on climate change, saying they had ’stolen my dreams and childhood’.

However, Prime Minister Scott Morrison was a noticeable absentee, but it appears to be the beginning of Greta is having a meltdown.

Is this a form of child abuse? To put a vulnerable girl with Asperger’s Syndrome on the world stage and applauding her?

Are adults taking advantage of Greta to push their climate change agenda?

Sky News presenter Chris Kenny sums this up saying the United Nations are taking advantage of Greta Thunberg.
