Is It Finally Time To Panic?

The low-pressure system that became Dorian formed on Aug. 23, strengthened to a tropical storm on Aug. 25, and became a hurricane on Aug. 28; 13 days of tracking and worrying so far. That it seems like months is a credit to the vigilance of our churn with concern media. A bit of worry is useful to get us focused on what needs to be done in the here and now, but excessive worry quickly becomes counterproductive.

It may even turn into an obsession, as it has for Swedish teen Greta Thunberg.

I don’t know about you but I don’t think it wise to take your “time to panic” cue from a self-described  child climate activist whose enlightened views are the sum total of 16 years of cultural propaganda.

In a speech to a packed committee of the European Parliament, Thunberg, 16, warned time is running out to stop the ravages of global warming.

"I want you to panic, I want you to act as if the house was on fire," Thunberg told the environment committee…Citing scientific reports endorsed by the United Nations and holding back her tears, she warned of accelerating disasters like mass species extinction, erosion of top soil, deforestation, air pollution, loss of insects and the acidification of oceans. - Yahoo

Ms. Thunberg, who sailed rather than flew to the U.S. in order to minimize her carbon footprint, has no more concept of the rules of nature at play in the creation of ‘global climate’ than do the United Nations representatives who idiotically ‘endorse scientific reports’ for a living.

And while I’m glad Greta found a cause that brought her out of her Asperger's shell, that does not mean she knows anything beyond her indoctrination.

Cute kid, glad she’s left her eating disorder behind in favor of fighting global warming; but shut up.

And having Asperger’s does not give you superpowers, you still have to work at it like everyone else. I’ve worked with people who were high functioning Asperger’s. They were very competent but they got that way the old fashioned way: they went to college and/or grad school and studied hard. Because whatever skills and abilities they may have been born with, coding and performing complex financial calculations still required instruction and learning.

So shut up Greta, and I don’t say that because you have Asperger’s, I say that because you don’t know what you’re talking about.

And may God help the people in Dorian’s path, because climate activists aren’t going to.
