In response to The Conservative Woman: St Greta: Is this child abuse?

A lot of people don’t know that Greta was born with a PhD in climatology and an Oxford PPE which is what enables her to speak with such assurance about matters that would be beyond ordinary 16-year-olds. One sympathises with her mental problems but the charge of child abuse sounds accurate.

Eco-activism is looking more and more like an extremist 1970s style cult every day. Psychological manipulation of individuals, groupthink, exploitation, censorship of off-message truths . . . and our media and politicians rush to worship the same false gods. Very weird.

But you know, putting to one side the welfare of the child (not however for a moment forgotten), the Thunberg phenomenon is well past the beginning of the end of the Warming hysteria. The ice they have been skating on has been getting steadily thinner and now has the weight-bearing properties of a lock of Greta’s hair.

There is not one senior international figure who is prepared to bet their future name to this farrago. When the oddities and cruelties of the Thunberg show come to light, it will do more to discredit the nonsense than all the accumulating evidence could do.

And boy, do the journos have a juicy target. David Rose had a go at the science a few years ago but got little traction, or lost interest. But mad and greedy parents in cahoots with big bad business? Now that can make a career.

Where are the Swedish social workers?

It isn’t just an abuse of this new Joan of Arc figure. It is the abuse of all our children who are now terrified that our planet is in imminent danger and about to die. At a time when they should be enjoying their short span of youth, they are fixated on Saint Greta’s misguided, negative preaching.
