    I reject the notion that "environmentalist", the word in question, necessitates taking said extreme measures.

    Note that in-thread, "environmentalist" has had adjectives like "fanatical" and "watermelon" appended to it in describing those who advocate extreme measures. You're picking a fight here, and I'm not sure why.

    Not all environmentalists are whack. I've enjoyed Bjorn Lomberg's insights, for instance.

    "Environmentalist" is one of those words that no longer represents its original meaning. For instance, when one says "environmentalist agenda", everybody immediately knows what you're talking about, no qualifiers necessary.

    Also the article accompanying the video.

    https://www.rebelnews.com/greta_thun...ource=therebel



    In an op-ed published over the weekend, Greta Thunberg announced to the world exactly what is driving her climate crusade. (Hint: it rhymes with "the fake-triarchy.")

    Set aside the secret flights for her staff and the half-million Euro catamaran she used to traverse the Atlantic, Thunberg has finally admitted what her climate crusade really is: a leftist wealth redistribution and social justice pipe dream.

    The climate is may not be the primary concern of the Greta-inspired “school strikers” after all. It's merely a vehicle, an excuse to implement a global political agenda.
    Although I'm not really a fan of Thunberg - she is passionate but not really capable of dealing with the many facets of the problem - this is mostly just trash. Any environmentalist movement will attack the abuses of the environment that come in the name of profit. And this article is just propaganda from those threatened by that. Not sure how the patriarchy gets in there, except that most fortune 500's - the big corporations that are not above risking the environment for profit - are run by men. However, the assumption their profit focused mishandling of the environment is the result of men running the thing is horribly naive. It's just greed, which knows no race, no gender.

    Did you watch the video, Jim? In Greta's own words, "It's not just about the environment. It's a crisis of human rights, injustice and political will. Colonial, racist and PATRIARCHAL systems of oppression have created and fueled it. We need to dismantle them all".

    Did you hear the part about her half a million dollar catamaran and the fetching of the pilot of that boat BY PLANE from London? That is the height of hypocrisy.

    If you can't bother to watch the video that discusses these things, then you have no business in this thread and I'll ask you to leave.

    One more thing. Until you understand the implications on the environmental religious fanatics on those who work and have spent their lives trying to support their families in the oil patch, as my husband has done, then you have absolutely nothing to say to me about it.

    It's not at all "propaganda." The majority of adherents of climate change use it as a religion. This is why it's mainly fervently endorsed by the left that predominantly don't have religious beliefs, because it gives them a sense of purpose and makes them feel self-righteous and morally superior to "the heretics," regardless of the fact most of them (like any religion based on a set moral dictates) are outright hypocrites when it comes to practicing what they preach. And now we're clearly seeing proof of leftist politics being intertwined with the climate change. We're definitely seeing it with the Green New Deal. And so this is why you have so much push-back from conservatives, and will continue to have that push-back.

    As opposed to the anti-science fanatical anti-environmentalists. It's because of mindsets like yours, who for some odd reason seem to think they know more than the scientists, that we are now near the point of no return when it comes to the oncoming climate disaster. I'm sure your kids and grand kids will thank you for their futures.
