C.L. : Poppets of Doom

There is tactical purpose behind the global warming cult’s increasing use of female minors as pigtailed propaganda rams. As the screen grab from ABC Online’s lead story of the day demonstrates, this cynical exploitation extends even to the point of celebrating academic failure. Overlaying the late medieval Jeanne D’arc mysticism is the gold-capped condescension of revived nineteenth century sexism. Being girls, their absence from school and – in the case of Siobhan – a mathematics exam, are not as important as they might be for boys. As Vito Corleone counselled, “women and children can afford to be careless, but not men.”

Additionally, it so happens that adults have a natural aversion to grilling children in a way likely to publicly confound and humiliate them. Men especially will almost never do so when those children are little girls. In addition to being infra dig from a masculine standpoint, even a mild interrogation would immediately be depicted as oafish bullying. The shadow commanders running this Army of Gretas would then play up the resultant brouhaha for sympathy. Which means that children are being used to promote climate hysteria precisely because they cannot be asked any questions – which their befuddled adult handlers have long since given up trying to answer.

    Abstract. We use statistical methods for nonstationary time series to test the anthropogenic interpretation of global warming (AGW), according to which an increase in atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations raised global temperature in the 20th century. Specifically, the methodology of polynomial cointegration is used to test AGW since during the observation period (1880–2007) global temperature and solar irradiance are stationary in 1st differences, whereas greenhouse gas and aerosol forcings are stationary in 2nd differences. We show that although these anthropogenic forcings share a common stochastic trend, this trend is empirically independent of the stochastic trend in temperature and solar irradiance. Therefore, greenhouse gas forcing, aerosols, solar irradiance and global temperature are not polynomially cointegrated, and the perceived relationship between these variables is a spurious regression phenomenon. On the other hand, we find that greenhouse gas forcings might have had a temporary effect on global temperature.

    Unless he happens to belong to the right identity group, and his name is Adam Goodes.

    In which case he is lauded by the left for doing precisely so.

    Thanks, C.L. I’m stealing that. Blair will be heartbroken that you got there first.

    And yes, you are right on the money. And, where oh where is a brave female journalist who will ask the needful questions?

    Siobhan, poor girl is a bit of a pog.

    Delingpole on the patron saint of the Age of Stupidity:

    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

    No need to ask questions when a better tactic is to state the bleeding obvious. She’s an ignorant fraud being abused (or manipulated, if you prefer) by evil cynical adults.

    Have fun Siobhan watching that Asian or Indian kid, who sat the exam and passed it, gets that university place instead of you. Have further fun reporting to them as an underling in five years time. And then for the rest of your life.

    Fear not. The school will find a way to compensate her for her devotion to the cause.

    It’s topical and worth a rerun:

    @ Megan:

    “The school will find a way to compensate her for her devotion to the cause.”

    Thereby further degrading the already dwindling “rating” of Oz school grades.

    When bright and dedicated students from here or overseas observe such manipulation, how impressed do you think they and their long-suffering parents will be?

  13. NuThink

    On a TV station in Adelaide this afternoon a young female at the demonstration was interviewed, and she said (paraphrased) that there was no point in going to school anymore as the world will be ending soon.
    I would say that she was parrotphrasing the so called scientists.
    Why are the media so irresponsible these days in scaring the heebie jeebies out of kids.
    I call it child abuse.
    No doubt they all got on their bicycles or pedal cars to go home.
    Remember how Orson Welles scared people with the War of the Worlds. And that was just one instance – and not continuous propaganda.
    They sure need to study arithmetic to work out how much affect Australia can have on “carbon pollution”.

    BTW check out the percentage of carbon in the human body which according to the info below is 18%.
    How polluted are our bodies?

    https://www.thoughtco.com/most-abundant-element-in-the-universe-602186

    The most abundant element in the human body is oxygen, making up about 65% of the weight of each person. Carbon is the second-most abundant element, making up 18% of the body. Although you have more hydrogen atoms than any other type of element, the mass of a hydrogen atom is so much less than that of the other elements that its abundance comes in third at 10% by mass.

    https://www.thoughtco.com/elements-in-the-human-body-p2-602188

    Anne Marie Helmenstine, Ph.D.
    Updated May 04, 2019
    There are several ways to consider the composition of the human body, including the elements, type of molecule, or type of cells. Most of the human body is made up of water, H2O, with cells consisting of 65-90% water by weight. Therefore, it isn’t surprising that most of a human body’s mass is oxygen. Carbon, the basic unit for organic molecules, comes in second. 99% of the mass of the human body is made up of just six elements: oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, calcium, and phosphorus.

    Oxygen (O) – 65% – Oxygen together with hydrogen form water, which is the primary solvent found in the body and is used to regulate temperature and osmotic pressure. Oxygen is found in many key organic compounds.
    Carbon (C) – 18% – Carbon has four bonding sites for other atoms, which makes it the key atom for organic chemistry. Carbon chains are used to build carbohydrates, fats, nucleic acids, and proteins. Breaking bonds with carbon is an energy source.
    Hydrogen (H) – 10% – Hydrogen is found in water and in all organic molecules.
    Nitrogen (N) – 3% – Nitrogen is found in proteins and in the nucleic acids that make up the genetic code.
    Calcium (Ca) – 1.5% – Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body. It’s used as a structural material in bones, but it is essential for protein regulation and muscle contraction.
    Phosphorus (P) – 1.0% – Phosphorus is found in the molecule ATP, which is the primary energy carrier in cells. It’s also found in bone.
    Potassium (K) – 0.35% – Potassium is an important electrolyte. It’s used to transmit nerve impulses and heartbeat regulation.

    Sulfur (S) – 0.25% – Two amino acids include sulfur. The bonds sulfur forms help give proteins the shape they need to perform their functions.
    Sodium (Na) – 0.15% – Sodium is an important electrolyte. Like potassium, it is used for nerve signaling. Sodium is one of the electrolytes that helps regulate the amount of water in the body.
    Chlorine (Cl) – 0.15% – Chlorine is an important negatively-charged ion (anion) used to maintain fluid balance.
    Magnesium (Mg) – 0.05% – Magnesium is involved in over 300 metabolic reactions. It’s used to build the structure of muscles and bones and is an important cofactor in enzymatic reactions.
    Iron (Fe) – 0.006% – Iron is found in hemoglobin, the molecule responsible for oxygen transport in red blood cells.
    Copper (Cu), Zinc (Zn), Selenium (Se), Molybdenum (Mo), Fluorine (F), Iodine (I), Manganese (Mn), Cobalt (Co) – total less than 0.70%
    Lithium (Li), Strontium (Sr), Aluminum (Al), Silicon (Si), Lead (Pb), Vanadium (V), Arsenic (As), Bromine (Br) – present in trace amounts

    “How can we go to school today with a climate emergency hanging over our heads” was the open question put up by ABC radio to cover all the feelz of the kids marching today.

    Kids across the world go to school in floods and heat half starved and with bombs falling on their homes.
    They seem to manage the real existential threats without a TV camera in sight.
    Toughen up little gloomy snowflakes.

  15. Megan

    Not at all I would think. But powerless to fight the zeitgeist.

  16. None

    no point feeding her then or giving her pocket money orpaying her dole money.
    Send her to Victoria and they can euthanise her. (yep I am waiting fir someone to come up with that as a serious option,..)

    Siobhan already has a dead tilt. And a pout. The idiotarian is strong in that one.

    The woke won’t.

    They may win battles here and their, but they won’t define the future.

  19. Crossie

    Where is this crisis all these kids are rabbiting on about? I see nothing but an average spring day out there and a sea of miseducated twits.

    I think they overstate their influence by screaming “people power”. Their threats to politicians can be safely ignored, they don’t vote therefore they don’t count.

    I had no idea there were so many spoiled brats out there.

  20. Buccaneer

    My son won an award for academic achievement at his school without needing to resort to cheap virtue signalling to influence his teachers perceptions of his ability. I asked him if he was offered the option to attend today’s rally. He said they were offered the opportunity but “only the dumb kids are going to skip a day of school “.

    It all depends on whether mummy or daddy own a company which will make it possible for her to be a trust fund protester for life.

  22. JC

    The left are pathetic to be wheeling out kids. Just pathetic. If you’re really concerned with gerbiling, then advocate nuclear energy, otherwise STFU.

  23. Deplorable

    Around 6.5 million victorian people did not show support for the 100,000 nazis parading in Melbourne. A bigger bunch of uninformed losers towing the socialist line, isn’t this exactly the way Hitler and his brown shirts started.. These children are not only stupid but brainwashed as well. This movement has moved well into dangerous territory aided and abetted by disloyal politicians.

  24. Farmer Gez

    Honestly Buccaneer, how can you be pleased with your boy when he lacks so much social and cultural intelligence?
    I hope the money he makes in later life is some small comfort for the climate disaster he aiding by his inaction.

  25. Megan

    I don’t disagree about the future, Roger. I’m more interested in the here and now. Our appalling PISA results would be even worse if it were not for students of immigrants who celebrate hard work as the path to academic achievement.
    Little Miss Grimm Tilt (above) clearly has not understood the basics of evolution or the human capacity to adapt. These misguided are brainwashed zombies coming for those of us who dare to disagree with their Chicken Little screeching.

  26. Dr Fred Lenin

    I advocate lowering the voting age to 14,these young people are just so aware and woke .( I dont really)
    They dont have to go to university ,they can go on the dole and soros subsidies , they can become climate activites and annoy the hell out of the people whose taxes pay their dole and soros massive profits from the climate scam . I bet the asian kids are not joining this stupid stunt ,too busy studying for theur bright future in the professions .
    We are very pleased my grand daughter is amongst a group of Asian girls at uni , peer group is most important ,very level headed bunch they are, none of this woke crap with them ,would hate to be a woke iclimateer teacher trying to indoctrinate them .

    Yes, but some are more coveted than others.

    Increasingly, these protesters are not living off their parents, but instead are paid by various activist organisations.

    We really need such payments publicly disclosed, like political donations are.

    Watched some program on TV (it may have been Bondi Rescue) on a day when the temp was ~+40°C and a young girl said she had just been in Siberia visiting relatives when the temp was ~-40 °C, and then to come back here to ~+40°C. People get acclimatized to big changes in temperature. It is no big deal.

    God help us.

  40. Robbo

    Siobhan has that look of a nasty smart arse who will go through the rest of her life with a giant sized chip on her shoulder. She’s already preparing some space for that chip with her idiot head tilt. Any man who thinks she would be a suitable life partner would regret making that decision.

  41. Frank

    I think they overstate their influence by screaming “people power”. Their threats to politicians can be safely ignored, they don’t vote therefore they don’t count.

    What some call a teachable moment. No one cares, you don’t matter, go home and ruminate on your impotence, nothing is going to change after all the shouting is over. Parents are doing them a favour in the long run probably, instilling a sense of fatalism early.

  42. candy

    I think most under the age of 35 or so firmly believe in climate change. With it being taught in schools and the media, how could they not? This has been happening for how long now -maybe 15 years?
    It’s probably not correct to criticise youngsters when it has been imprinted on their consciousness for many years now. The teachers teach this.

    Never mind the teachers all drive cars, eat meat, use the bet electronic gadgets, plastic anything, and live in good homes and travel on planes, as do Green politicians and media personalities. the kids understand nothing of that, simply nothing.

  43. struth

    That they abuse children like this is disgusting.

    Even if you really believed the world was going to end in a few years, the non evil adult would do their level best to keep it from the children.

    This is now do or die for the lefties in the education system.
    They’ve crossed the point of no return and if they don’t bring on the global socialist UN revolution there’s going to be some mighty pissed off young adults who will realise their youth, their carefree years were stolen from them.
    These children are the true stolen generation.
    They’ve had their youth stolen .

    These education bureaucrats and teachers are true scum.
    Foul c..nts who will pay for this.

  44. the not very bright Marcus

    Was probably an underwhelming turnout because ,being end of term ,the teachers wanted to piss off early so they couldn’t help “steer” the children’s protest

  45. Jock

    Did they start singing : “Tomorrow belongs to me”?

    I know it was only the Hitler Yuff in Caberet , but it seems to fit this lot.

  46. Russell

    So even Their ABC is reporting really about only 120K national participants today and that police report only 12K protestors in Brisbane CBD. My maths tells me (a bit like Powerball) that AGW/CC can’t be a significant issue for the average Aussie. Particularly, when you consider that 50K regularly turn up to watch a football match and have to pay for that privilege.
    AGW/CC must be at least 4 times less important than football – good call sane Australians.
    Of course, Victorians had higher representation but we all know they have other sanity problems.
    Hope our pollies are doing these same maths and figure that this stupid cause has just about run its course.

  47. Tel

    These children are the true stolen generation.
    They’ve had their youth stolen.

    She’s probably a sweet young girl who trusted the wrong people … happens all the time.

    Hopefully she comes back in 10 years and reads this page and says, “Gosh I’ve learned a thing to two!”

    That’s why Evolution in it’s great wisdom makes kids turn nasty around puberty … to help them adjust to the world and throw off the bullshit that inevitably gets piles on them. We have all been there. Personally I think the warming alarmists are desperately throwing the dice one more time. When Chairman Mao got the kids to rise up in the Cultural Revolution, he already had the adults beaten down and he had a fair good hold over the kids as well. In this case a thousand people took a long weekend and millions of people don’t care at all. Most everyone is getting pissed off by such behaviour. It’s gonna sort itself out.

  48. Bruce

    Shades of the Children’s Crusades?

    More appropriately; The Khmer Rouge: the Worlds most famous pure socialists. Their most merciless and brutal killers in that regime were CHILDREN, most between the ages of eight and thirteen, stripped of all responsibility except to the State and particularly “Brother Number One”, Saloth Sar, AKA Pol Pot. These “children” were the ones who slaughtered their parents, friends, anyone who spoke a second language, wore spectacles, etc., I was first there in 1990. A decade after the Viets smashed the main KR forces, the place was still largely shattered, physically and psychologically.

    Being good little eco-fascists, the KR directed that the “kiddies”use rocks and branches to beat their victims to death. Their other party trick was to refashion a frond from a Sugar Palm into a crude (but very organic) saw, and slash the throats of their hapless victims. Interestingly, their main torture and execution centre was the re-purposed Tuol Sleng High School. The country is dotted with mass graves. Most have been dug up and the bones re interred in specially built shrines as “memorials”.

    They were sponsored and supplied by those nice folk in China.

    That’s a place of pure evil. I don’t know how to link to it, but there’s a sign outside, telling the victims of torture how they should conduct themselves.

  51. Ian Macmillan

    These Government sponsored demonstrations are straight out of the Adolf Hitler playbook, as the proponents pursue the Final Solution to Carbon Dioxide, used as their Socialist stalking horse.

    Josef Goebbels said that a lie is always a lie, but if told often enough, it becomes a truth.

    From Chris Snowdon’s blog:

    Child Exploitation In Scotland

    This is creepy and disturbing. The Scottish government has formed a ‘Children’s Parliament’ of 9 to 11 year olds. They put these kids in a room with Alison Douglas from the state-funded temperance group Alcohol Focus Scotland and filled their heads with anti-alcohol policies which they then regurgitated on camera and in a report.

    Time to put this shit back on these morons.
    OK, you spend your time scaring the fuck out of everyone modelling climate out decades ahead.
    So you want to reduce the production of CO2?
    Put your modelling skills to use to find a solution.
    We require the solution to have the following:
    Reliable base load power to supply homes and all existing industry.
    The price of our electricity to be internationally competitive. (You don’t get to cheat by exporting our emissions to other countries)
    Then once you have found the solution (hint: it will require at least one nuclear plant) lobby government to implement it as hard as you have been with your stupid complaints about climate.

    Excellent reference and suggestion of yours at the start of this thread, Frank. Hit these kiddies with some stochastic analysis. They might begin to realise that they are as yet totally incompetent to be paddling in the big people’s pool and go back to school.

    Anyway I don’t think Antje has any further claim to being an employability counsellor (read: sucking off the public teat to keep people on the public teat treadmill) given she is happy for her daughter to make herself unemployable…and if she wants to say there will be no world for her to be employed in…one can say great, Antje needs to be relieved of her pointless job.

  71. Nob

    Antje looks like a German who married an Irish or Australian then moved to Australia after a spell in Ireland.

    I don’t see any absence of a father, and anyway, I wish her no harm. Not sure if she would say the same about me, but I’m happy to keep working in oil & gas to make their idle indulgences possible. What a society that can create such surplus to carry such parasites!

    And I wouldn’t be looking for her advice on employability in Perth now that oil companies are hiring again.

    I don’t wish them any harm either Nob. The stupid girl only had the brainwave to “organise” a protest four days ago. I just see that as a cry for attention. It’s not as if some of us weren’t clueless 14 year olds ourselves once.
    The trouble is her mother is a bint and she hasn’t worked that out yet.

  73. Nob

    had the brainwave to “organise” a protest

    You have to admire her originality at that age. And salute her indefatigability.

    I mean it’s not like the media have been going on, and on and on and on and on, and on and on, about how exciting it all is.

    And she would have had to bravely defy the disapproval of her parents and teachers and schoolmates too.

    This insanity is no different to that visited upon the young in the early 80s re imminent nuclear war.

    And comes from the same source.

    Let’s face it.

    It was a fizzer, a farce, a flop.

    Now when’s the next one?

    Didn’t van baddie get involved in some stupid marches a couple of years ago that dwindled into nothing.

    Climate?
    Refugees?
    Some other non cause?

  76. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Beare

    Very pertinent stuff above about the Khmer Rouge and its Year Zero. The similarities in thought to the extremes of the Climate Cult, especially the use of children, chill me to the bone. Communism is such an evil and these children and their ‘climate protests’ are doing its work amongst us. Someone should alert the children and those who care for them to some history and remove this blind and pernicious ideology from our schools. Parents, wake up.

    My son won an award for academic achievement at his school without needing to resort to cheap virtue signalling to influence his teachers perceptions of his ability. I asked him if he was offered the option to attend today’s rally. He said they were offered the opportunity but “only the dumb kids are going to skip a day of school “.

    We are very pleased my grand daughter is amongst a group of Asian girls at uni , peer group is most important ,very level headed bunch they are, none of this woke crap with them ,would hate to be a woke iclimateer teacher trying to indoctrinate them .

    I was going to say this gives us some hope but from what others are saying this protest is a fizzer anyway. The real concern is the relentless MSM propaganda and what to do about it.

    Additionally, it so happens that adults have a natural aversion to grilling children in a way likely to publicly confound and humiliate them. Men especially will almost never do so when those children are little girls. In addition to being infra dig from a masculine standpoint, even a mild interrogation would immediately be depicted as oafish bullying.

    a very good point.

    In addition to the Khmer Rouge cited above, it’s worth revisiting this excellent Quillette piece (Mao’s children)

    Did they start singing : “Tomorrow belongs to me”?

    The recruitment of children and old men at the end that was a sign of their utter desperation.

  82. Roger W

    The author hits the nail on the head. This is largely an example of female mass hysteria. The vast majority of teachers are now female and the vast majority of young protesters are female. Explain the screaming crowds of teenage girls who met The Beatles and you explain this latest phenomenon.

    Yes, their fewcha has been stolen from them by carbon spewing old white men, capitalist economic activity and flatulent bovines.

  87. Many hard core sceptics have been saying the climate scam is a conspiracy, not science gone wrong.
    These climate protests were held around the Western World, proving that coordination exists.

    Now go back to the “Climategate” e-mails and what they revealed about the core group of scientists and their coordination in promoting this scam.

    The whole thing……WHOLE THING is a Worldwide scam perpetuated by activists and carpetbaggers at the behest of the UN.

    There is zero proof of AGW. There is zero proof that the planet has warmed since 1979.
    Nobody but nobody knows what the average temperature of the planet is at any given moment, let alone across years and centuries.
    Nobody has any data on what temperatures were across the planet at say…..06:00 hours GMT on any particular day. THOSE RECORDS DON’T EXIST.

    “The Science” isn’t science, it’s statistical manipulation of (scant and irrelevant) data to show a predetermined conclusion.

    Acquaintance tells me her 28 year old daughter went to the climate march (in our big country town) and is very distraught about “the situation”. I enquired what exactly was her daughter worried about. Microplastics in the ocean is top of the list, and too much population “using everything up”. I asked, what exactly could we do ourselves about both those things, specifically. Well, the 28 year old is not going to have children, and we should be careful not to buy plastic straws. There you have it !!!!
    I admit to being served a paper straw with a gin and tonic when eating out this week. It got soggy quickly and was not pleasant, of course when I mentioned it, one helpful suggestion was not to use it and the other was that I was clearly drinking it too slowly !

    Next article in the media – for some mysterious reason the suicide rate keeps climbing….

    taught:
    No origin
    No creator
    No purpose
    No goal
    No future

  92. From a London Times article….

    Scientists at the University of East Anglia (UEA) have admitted throwing away much of the raw temperature data on which their predictions of global warming are based.

    It means that other academics are not able to check basic calculations said to show a long-term rise in temperature over the past 150 years.

    The UEA’s Climatic Research Unit (CRU) was forced to reveal the loss following requests for the data under Freedom of Information legislation.

    The data were gathered from weather stations around the world and then adjusted to take account of variables in the way they were collected. The revised figures were kept, but the originals — stored on paper and magnetic tape — were dumped to save space when the CRU moved to a new building.

    NOBODY knows what the temperature of this planet is, has been or will be.
    The question “what is the temperature of the planet?” can not be answered because there is NO DATA.

    When so called scientists take the temperature of the air 2m above ground, then marry it with the temperature of water (not the air 2m above water) and average it and claim that’s a meaningful data point, you know science isn’t being done. Propaganda is being done.

    oh Sioban, like athletes who boycotted the 1980 Russian Summer Olympics, you may well come to know regret

    rhetorical question, one that requires no answer:
    Will saint Greta be discarded one day as well?
    Will there be regret?

    Men especially will almost never do so when those children are little girls. In addition to being infra dig from a masculine standpoint, even a mild interrogation would immediately be depicted as oafish bullying. The shadow commanders running this Army of Gretas would then play up the resultant brouhaha for sympathy. Which means that children are being used to promote climate hysteria precisely because they cannot be asked any questions – which their befuddled adult handlers have long since given up trying to answer.

    How dare any man criticise Greta! How dare they!:

    George Christensen, Sam Newman lashed for attacking 16-year-old climate change activist……..

    “Imagine feeling so threatened by a little girl you need to do something like this. Conservatives are such snowflakes,” Ripley Newbold added……..

    “You’re a sad excuse of a man, picking on a 16 year old girl with Aspergers, all because she and millions of her peers care about the future of our planet,” one commented.

    “A female minor has a voice and she’s a ‘little brat’, if it was a male would you feel less threatened?” another added……..

    Former Australian PM Kevin Rudd earlier speculated Ms Thunberg’s rant would anger people, suggesting her fierce speech would “incense a whole lot of middle-aged white guys”.
