Climate Activist Greta Thunberg’s Yacht Trip to America More Harmful to Environment Than Flying

Six members of her team have to fly back to Germany from New York.

Published

Climate activist Greta Thunberg’s virtue signalling trip on a $4 million dollar yacht to lecture Americans about climate change will be more harmful to the environment than if she had flown via aircraft.

Thunberg and her team set sail on the Malizia II for a voyage that will take 2 weeks to reach New York.

The mode of transport was deliberately chosen so Thunberg could relentlessly virtue signal about the evils of air travel.

But the entire trip is a complete farce.

As the German newspaper Taz points out, the yacht trip means more CO2 will be released into the atmosphere than if just Greta and her father had traveled by air because six members of her team have to fly back to Germany from New York.

“The sailing trip triggers at least six climate-damaging air travel across the Atlantic. If Thunberg had flown with her father, only two would have been necessary to come to New York,” reports Taz.

Indeed, a single flight from New York to Hamburg releases 1,800 kilograms of carbon dioxide, which equates to more than three quarters of what each person is entitled to a year if global warming is to be halted at 2 degrees.

As James Delingpole asks, besides the rank hypocrisy of her attention grabbing yacht trip, how exactly did Thunberg come to be the lecturing face of the environmentalist movement?

“A lecture, furthermore, from a child who hasn’t finished her schooling, whose frontal lobes haven’t formed, who has no sense of humour, whose every utterance is the second-hand opinion of alarmist grown-ups whose doomsday claims she is completely unequipped to assess?” he writes.

But despite wall to wall positive press coverage, ordinary people just aren’t buying it.

As we previously reported, German drivers have begun displaying ‘f*ck you Greta’ bumper stickers to let the 16-year-old and her handlers know exactly how they feel about being told what to do by a child.

New Zealanders Face 5 Years in Jail For Not Handing in Banned Firearms

Report shows gun owners giving up their guns.

Published

on

Following a ban on virtually all semi-automatic firearms, New Zealanders face 5 years in jail if they refuse to hand them in.

A France 24 report on the government’s new buyback scheme showed a line of gun owners wilfully giving up their guns in response to the Christchurch massacre earlier this year.

This despite the fact that the shooter himself said in his own manifesto that provoking mass gunfiscation was one of his intended goals. Mission accomplished.

Since the buyback scheme began, 19,000 firearms have been handed in. Most of the guns seen being handed in looked like ordinary rifles, not AR-15s.

Inspector Terry Van Dillen said he “accepted” that some people would be emotional giving up their guns due to them having been handed down by families for generations.

I’m sure any potential future mass shooters are gleefully handing in their firearms to police as I write this.

New Zealand’s gang members even publicly announced they would refuse to hand in any of the “banned” firearms.

Disarming responsible people and making them easier targets for actual criminals.

Genius idea.

“The left tries to threaten, bully, intimidate Americans into submission”

During a rally in New Mexico Monday night, President Trump tore into the left over the trend of ‘cancel culture’, saying that leftists are obsessed with bullying everyday Americans into submission.

“The left tries to threaten, bully, intimidate Americans into submission,” Trump said.

“They use Democrat prosecutors and congressional committees whenever they can… to demean you, to libel you. They try to blacklist, coerce, cancel or destroy anyone who gets in their way.” the President added.

Trump referred directly to the New York Times running another story alleged sexual misconduct by Brett Kavanaugh which was based on pure conjecture.

“They have to change their ways,” he continued. “They wrote a story about somebody that said she doesn’t remember this.” he added, referring to the ‘accuser’ who admitted that she didn’t recall the incident.

The Times’ was forced to make a major revision to the story.

“Do you see — the Democrats are calling for his resignation. They’re calling for his impeachment, and the woman involved said she doesn’t know anything. So the New York Times had to put out a major apology, and they had to change their story … and they still want him to be impeached!” Trump proclaimed.

“I call for the resignation of everybody at The New York Times involved in the Kavanaugh smear story, and while you’re at it, the Russian witch hunt hoax, which is just as phony a story. ” the President continued.

“They’ve taken the old Grey Lady, so prestigious, and broken her down, destroyed her virtue, and ruined her reputation. She can never recover, and will never return to greatness under current management. The Times is dead, long live the New York Times.” Trump further declared, echoing comments he made on Twitter earlier in the day.

Ted Cruz Slams PolitiFact For Claiming Beto’s Plan to ‘Take the Guns’ Was False

Fact checking the fact checkers.

Published

Ted Cruz slammed fact checking website PolitiFact for previously claiming that Beto O’Rourke’s plan to “take our guns” was false following Beto’s assertion last night that, “Hell yeah, we’re going to take your AR-15!”

Back in March, PolitiFact “fact checked” a lyric in a Ted Cruz primary campaign song which proclaimed Beto “wants to take our guns.”

PolitiFact reported that Beto had “not called…for government agents to take guns from law-abiding residents.”

However, during last night’s Democratic debate Beto did precisely that.

“Hell yeah, we’re going to take your AR-15!” Beto proclaimed.

“Just a reminder, when I said it, PolitiFact (a wholly-owned subsidiary of the DNC) rated “Beto wants to take our guns” as FALSE. Maybe they should buy one of his new t-shirts,” tweeted Cruz.
