    I’ve been doing science for 40 years.
    That is 2.5 times as long as Greta has been alive.
    Should I believe my lying eyes or should I believe her?

  2. Mundi

    Thunbergs parents are big millionaires (ets. 200m euro wealth)
    She has a team off handlers/writers/teachers apparently costing nearly 1m/yr

    Time’s are a changing.

  5. Cassie of Sydney

    A perfect analogy.

  6. Time magazine became irrelevant years ago.

  7. Tim Neilson

    To be fair, Time’s Person of the Year is (or used to be) not necessarily the best person, but the most consequential.
    And on that measure Greta is (bizarre though that concept is) probably a good choice.

    Congratulations to the manipulated retard!

    Keean Bexte is a very good interviewer. Here he is at COP25 Madrid. We can see that he took the video, but we have to take his word for it that it is the Gretamobile.

    Go Greta. Tomorrow belongs to her. Just look at the state of Berlin after that WW2 kerfuffle.

    A good measure, a good peak into the future, is evidenced by Greta’s little ocean crossing, to show that she was not burning hydrocarbons. How long did that jaunt take her?

    That is what she and they want: economic regression, that is, decapitalisation, diminishing marginal productivity of labour and penury.

    I am always reminded of the song “Tomorrow Belongs To Me” whenever someone uses inevitability as a political argument.

    The Australian Republican movement does it a lot.

    I’m with Rafe. I prefer Naomi Seibt.

    Nice tune but!
    Posted to Facebook with the message “You have been warned!”

    Being on the cover of Time Magazine usually means the peak has already been reached. It’s all down-hill from now on for the Gaia religion.

  16. The BigBlueCat

    As she said herself, she should be in school. That way she might learn something about climate systems and how to prepare for changing weather rather than wringing her hands and wetting her bed over climate change.

  17. Beachcomber

    Greta Thunberg’s plastic garbage filled Tesla suggests that something is quite wrong; that she and her parents/carers have some “issues”. I wouldn’t like to speculate in what those issues would be.

  18. The BigBlueCat

    A good “peak” or a good “peek” … either way, I doubt we’ve seen the full hysteria; with Extinction Rebellion acting like fools also we’ll see much more in 2020.

    I wonder how many burnt hydrocarbons went into building that catamaran? And that racing sloop? Certainly on a “per capita” basis, there would be plenty!

  19. The White Aryian retarded offspring of multi millionaires . Preaching her Climate Cult BS to the brainwashed millennials who dump KFC -Maccas or anything else they may have in their unskilled hands straight onto the ground ,as soon as their smart phone beeps …… F…. me !

    Been a long time since Time had any value, been infiltrated by the commos like the rest of the media

    ‘Muhammad’ Breaks Into Top 10 U.S. Baby Names for First Time Ever. Jump back to the year 2000, though, and the name Muhammad did not register on a list of the year’s 200 most popular baby boy names.

    Tomorrow belongs to thee.

    Irrelevant magazine humours mentally ill child.

    I guess climate change girl warriors are the preferred choice for Time.

    A lass who did good works like working in shelters for the homeless/abused and helping the unloved and unwanted of society would not be considered doing anything special.

  24. The Sheriff

    Appalling choice from Time given that 99% of readers voted for the HK protesters to get the award

  25. Walter Plinge

    Powerline reports —

    So St. Greta it is. The media is so self-unaware that it cannot conceive that the whole St. Greta phenomenon represents the nadir of the climate crusade. After all, if a Nobel Prize and Academy Award for Al Gore didn’t do the trick, what makes anyone think a 16-year old Swedish girl will cause everyone to sit up and say, “Well, I guess I better buy a Prius now!”

    I’m still awaiting a media story that discloses the massive and organized PR operation behind St. Greta. You don’t really think she emerged spontaneously? Who pays for the travel of her retinue, for her hotel rooms and meals, and organizing the public events and other moveable feasts where she appears? I suspect she and her parents (reportedly leftist artists and actors of one kind or another) are banking some nice coin on this whole scene.

    St. Greta can look forward to a great future. In fact, I predict if she keeps this up, she’ll have a shot at marking more appearances on CNN than Michael Avenatti—the media’s last great celebrity hero who they championed not for actual newsworthiness, but because he was a perfect ventriloquist dummy for the narrative they want to promote.

  26. Slim Cognito

    As someone else pointed out, it’s an achievement she shares with Stalin and some little known German politician called Hitler. Also Trump, Obama and Billy Clinton. Is there anyone who hasn’t been given this gong?

    As someone said, a perfect analogy. Leftwingers love wheeling out kids. In those case they wheeled out an semi -autistic young teenager who pulls very distorted faces.

    The author of Black Swan came up with an made up word description of this disturbing form of propaganda.

    Pedophrasty

    Definition: Argument involving children to prop up a rationalization and make the opponent look like an asshole, as people are defenseless and suspend all skepticism in front of suffering children: nobody has the heart to question the authenticity or source of the reporting. Often done with the aid of pictures.

    Can also describe the exploitation of babies by professional beggars who rent them from their parents and use them as potent appendage in their trade(remember that children tend to grow and need to be replaced).
    Pedophrasty is effective as it provides arguments to strike before the evidence is formed. People are moved into “doing something”.

    Pedophrasts prey on our maternal (and paternal) instincts.

    Pedophrasty has its most effects on actors, journalists and similar types who are intellectually insecure, deprived of critical judgment, and afraid of being classified as violators of some norm of political correctness. For instance, pedophrasty has been commonly used in the Syrian war by such propagandists as Julian Roepke continuously supplying the German public with pictures of dead children. Or the various lobbies hired by Saudi Barbaria (and allies), such as the Middle East Institute in Washington DC, to promote Sunni Islamist policies under the cover of “think tanks”.

  28. Vagabond

    The logical next step is the Sydney Peace Prize.

  29. Given that she appears a strange little person, I suspect that this amount of global attention will not bode her well in the future. It rarely does, even for fairly balanced, normal adults.

  30. Squirrel

    The prize should have gone to Geppetto, not Pinocchio.

    Te ABC will be wetting themselves with excitement when they land her as a guest – via solar powered video link – for their oh so lovely new, youth-oriented reboot of Q&A in 2020.

  31. Lee

    I don’t take any notice of Marxists.

    Least of all sanctimonious little teenage brats.

    As if any but a tiny minority of youth watch that shit.

  33. Nob

    Although the ABC’s definition of “youth” probably goes up to 58 if you hold the correct opinions.

    I’ve been doing science for 40 years.

    I’ve been working with, and then managing engineers , mathematicians and chemists for 40 years this year. These scientists, for scientists they are, although they seldom refer to themselves as such, have not only credentials but ongoing learning at the highest level, incredible real-life experience and are intellectually superior any media rent-a-pundit.

    97% of them don’t give a rat’s arse on what the media’s opinion of The Science is.
    “Facts are chiels that winna ding”

    When it comes to listening to “experts” then the ABC etc and the whole green media blob are strangely reluctant to consult the actual non-academic experts on fracking, oil & gas exploration, mining and agriculture.

    Look at their reports on anything to do with mining or drilling – straight to a clueless greenie, never anybody with any actual expertise.

    Congratulations Greta! Enjoy your place in history alongside of Khemonei and Hitler!

    Greata Thunberg: makes up a climate crisis and has a spack attack when she doesn’t get her own way. Time Person of the Year.

    Donald Trump: makes up an illegal immigrant crisis and has a spack attack when he doesn’t get his own way. Time Person of the Year.

    I’m detecting a theme here.

    RIP David Bellamy, a conservationist whose reputation was destroyed by Climate loons, died on the day they elevate the Climate loon youth.

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-50752089

    Bellamy became an outspoken critic of green groups, whom he complained didn’t “have campaigners campaigning for anything positive”. He also had a long-running dispute with George Monbiot, a fellow environmentalist, who described him as the “Bearded Bungler”.

    In 2002 he published his autobiography, entitled: Jolly Green Giant, The Autobiography of David J Bellamy OBE, Hon FLS, an Englishman.

    Two years later he claimed he was “frozen out” by the BBC when he denounced climate change — then referred to as global warming — as “poppycock”. He was sacked as president of the Royal Society of Wildlife Trusts, and complained that he learnt of his dismissal from the newspapers.

    How very dare you Kates !!!
    You have identified the meme set used to advance the cause : youth/beauty(innocence) progressive ‘calling out’ the experienced/aged/sceptical so clearly shown here with a just beneath the surface (or in Greta’s case clearly visible) loathing and barely restrained violence for those that resist the globalist/socialist paradise :: shades of the caliphate ::

  39. Jef

    What has the world come to ? Adults, yes even the ‘wise people’ in the UN, have to listen to a 16 year old ,who does not even go to school and believe what she says about the world “going to end in 12 years’ time’ ! And now more leftwing idiots in Time magazine think she is the messiah who is going to save us all !??..MORONS aplenty!

  40. struth

    Now, camera used on an Iphone, was she clothed in garments made with products of mining?
    Is the magazine paper?
    How was it harvested?

    and how rich are her child abusing dead shit hippy parents now?
