Greta’s Dire Straits

Greta Thunberg doesn’t go to school, because adults around her have convinced her the climate situation is simply too bad. Instead she is traveling on an expensive yacht to the US, preaching imminent doom as a “magnet for hope.” She has been told that children had a much brighter future when CO2 levels were lower, like a century ago. Greta believes greenhouse gases cause catastrophic heatwaves, natural disasters and disease, which will ruin her future..

It is easy enough to test that idea out, by looking at how children lived a century ago – at lower CO2 levels. On this date in 1916, children were out of school for different reasons. New York Public Schools were shut down due to a polio epidemic.

Before the Vaccines: Medical Treatments of Acute Paralysis in the 1916 New York Epidemic of Poliomyelitis

The polio epidemic spread all over the country. This 1916 photo was taken in Billings, Montana. (At least the children didn’t have to face an extra 0.0001 mole fraction CO2 in the atmosphere.)

And what about the weather? On this date in 1916, there were 100 degree temperatures from Oregon to upstate New York. Adrian, Michigan was the hottest place in the country at 106 degrees.

States over 100F on August 22, 1916 : Michigan 106, Oklahoma 105, Arizona 104, Kansas 102, Louisiana 102, Ohio 102, Texas 102, New York 101, Utah 101, Missouri 100, New Jersey 100, Oregon 100 and Pennsylvania 100.

Ithaca NY was 101 degrees on this date in 1916. They have had a total of ten days over 100 degrees since 1895, all of which occurred more than 80 years ago.

All days over 100F at Ithaca, New York
7/3/1911    101

7/8/1936    101
7/9/1936    103
7/10/1936   102

The hottest August 22 across the US occurred in 1936. The average afternoon temperature across the US that day was 91 degrees.

Four states were over 110 degrees and twenty-one states were over 100 degrees on this date in 1936 : Missouri 112, South Dakota 112, Indiana 111, Arizona 110, California 109, Texas 108, Illinois 107, Oklahoma 107, Arkansas 106, Kansas 106, Kentucky 105, Michigan 105, Tennessee 105, Ohio 104, Iowa 103, Louisiana 103, Mississippi 102, Nebraska 102, West Virginia 102, Colorado 100 and Utah 100.

The second August 22 hottest occurred in 1938.

US August 22 afternoon temperatures have been declining since 1895.

The likelihood and areal coverage of hot weather has also been declining, with recent years among the coolest on record.

Two years after the polio outbreak of 1916, the deadliest pandemic in history killed as many as 40 million people, most of them young.

Greta is scheduled to speak at the UN when her yacht arrives, as their official science expert. In this role she replaces another high school dropout with a 450 foot long yacht.

To his credit, Leo DiCaprio always brings lots of climate models on the yacht with him.

Nothing Greta has been taught has any basis in reality.  The Greta situation is a good reminder of how evil the people behind this scam are.

    The world needs nothing more than Greta Thunberg in New York.

    As the things she”ll be doing there couldn’t have been done where she lives.
    Thanks god she looks like 11
    and only evil bigot racist nazis would dare to criticze her.

    I’m pretty sure the articles for her “heroic” atlantic crossing have already been written by UN((sitting in a cabin while the crew does the work is really tough,unlike other actors like Erol Flynn who did this alone from New Zealand)).
    Let”s see how many millions Netflix and others will offer her for her biography.

    • Bill Powers says:

      The world has lost is mind.

    • Nicholas McGinley says:

      She is gonna be shocked by the US, where most people are not at all receptive to being guilted, over half of people know global warming is a scam, and of the people that do think it is a problem, they are willing to pay an average of one dollar a year to do anything about it.
      Cars everywhere, big gas guzzler SUVs. Roads jammed from coast to coast with one person per vehicle for the most part…
      For some reason this strikes me as funny…she is really gonna be upset here if she was over there.

  2. Larry Geiger says:

    Do not ask my mother how things were back in the 40’s for children. She was in nursing training in Birmingham, AL at the Birmingham Baptist Hospital School of Nursing (now the Ida Mae Moffett School of Nursing who was the director of the school when my mom was there). Her stint in pediatrics scared the wits out of her. She has told me that she could never work in “peds”. My wife’s mother was in nursing school around the same time at the St. Louis University School of Nursing. She became an obstetrics nurse.

    They will both tell you , in no uncertain terms how bad anti-vaxxers are. How bad the diseases of the time were. Little Greta has no idea of what she speaks. Perhaps she needs a mother or grandmother or great-grandmother to set her straight. My mother and mother in law can scarcely believe the nonsense being perpetrated by people like this. Polio is an awful thing.

    • Sean Thomas says:

      If vaccines were so great, do you really think they would force people to take them? Do you really think they offer them for free to Africa? Can you name one other good thing that we give to Africa or force people to take? Flouride?

      Do you somehow believe that different ruling classes are pushing climate change hysteria and vaccine mandates?

      • Sean Thomas says:

        Oops, “Do you really think they offer them for free to Africa?” Should have been WOULD offer…

      • John Grosse says:

        ‘If vaccines were so great, do you really think they would force people to take them? Do you really think they offer them for free to Africa? Can you name one other good thing that we give to Africa or force people to take? Flouride?”

        So you think vaccines are bad? OK, don’t take them when you are down with a virus infection.
        Why are you introducing a different subject, viz..
        charging Africa for vaccines???

      • Nicholas McGinley says:

        Sean,
        You must be a child, and not a very well educated one.
        I will just say it straight out: You have no idea what you are talking about, and you should shut up and learn some things.

    • KevinPaul says:

      Ironically, Greta’s pubescent personality change could’ve been caused by a vaccine COMBINATION.

      The greater majority of antivaxxers are not against vaccines per see, especially since 2014 when they were properly “cleaned” of animal viruses and active RNA/DNA debris, all of which can cause serious disease in humans such as cancer.

      The problem with vaccines is they are by law considered botanicals and not drugs. The combination cocktails they give children have never been tested, they don’t need to be by law since they are not considered drugs.

      Giving a one day old baby an untested cocktail of vaccines, including one against sexually transmitted disease which only last 4 years anyway is madness, and ultimately it is all about company profits above the health of the child. The problem is the developing immune system of the child is assaulted by too many different innoculants all within a very short period of time, and so it’s the administration program that is at issue.

      With negative exposure and potentially threatened bottom line, Big Pharma launched an orchestrated smear campaign against antivaxxers much like that aimed at CAGW skeptics (deniers) they used the MSM just the same, because in the end it’s all about $.

      • Gator says:

        That does not match what I know of vaccine testing…

        Development of New Vaccines

        The general stages of the development cycle of a vaccine are:

        *Exploratory stage

        *Pre-clinical stage

        *Clinical development

        *Regulatory review and approval

        *Manufacturing

        *Quality control

        Clinical development is a three-phase process. During Phase I, small groups of people receive the trial vaccine. In Phase II, the clinical study is expanded and vaccine is given to people who have characteristics (such as age and physical health) similar to those for whom the new vaccine is intended. In Phase III, the vaccine is given to thousands of people and tested for efficacy and safety.

        Many vaccines undergo Phase IV formal, ongoing studies after the vaccine is approved and licensed.

        • KevinPaul says:

          Gator you know full well the perversion of science at NOAA, NASA etc. Do you really think the CDC/FDA are beyond reproach?
          quote
          “In August 2014, CDC senior vaccine safety scientist, Dr. William Thompson, invoked federal whistleblower status and testified to Congressman William Posey that his CDC supervisors had ordered him to destroy data and manipulate studies to conceal injuries to black children from certain vaccines.”

          No studies are conducted on multi-vaccine cocktails, only GOD knows the resulting effects on children.

          • Gator says:

            Yet clearly they do test vaccines. Let’s keep the facts straight, and not fall into an anti-vaxxer anti-science rant. There is dishonesty in all fields of work, and all walks of life.

  3. Joel says:

    “In this role she replaces another high school dropout with a 450 foot long yacht.”

    That is simultaneously hilarious and tragic.

    Keep up the good work!

  4. Gummans Gubbe says:

    So a German magazine (I haven’t read it myself) found out the she is going with two of the crew from the boat. They will catch a plane back to Europe while two other crew members will travel back in order to sail the boat back to Europe.

    Is this true?

    • Gator says:

      Five crew members will be flying, and they may have a chase boat.

      ‘We added the trip to New York City at very short notice, and as a result two people will need to fly over to the US in order to bring the boat back,’ a Team Malizia spokeswoman told the Times.

      She added: ‘The world has not yet found a way to make it possible to cross an ocean without a carbon footprint.’

      Actually it has. It’s called “Skype”.

      The toilet is a blue plastic bucket, complete with a biodegradable bag that can be thrown overboard…

      All plastic is biodegradable to one degree or another. Greta et al are littering, throwing plastic and raw sewage into the ocean.

  5. Wes Hamel says:

    I’m pretty sure we can get back to those glorious times if we adopt the provisions of the green new deal.

  6. John F. Hultquist says:

    Regarding polio:
    We lived about 80 miles from Pittsburgh PA and the subject was much discussed because of the Jonas Salk team there. A few folks in our small town did get polio. Thus local children were early receivers of the vaccine.
    I moved from the area, but often wonder about those classmates because of this:
    Post-polio syndrome refers to a cluster of potentially disabling signs and symptoms that appear decades — an average of 30 to 40 years — after the initial polio illness.

    On another note:
    Jay ‘climate nut’ Inslee is gone from the field.

  7. Wiliam Haas says:

    Since Greta is not a climate scientist, according to the alarmists, she has no authority to make statements regarding climate change. At the rate she is going she will never become a climate scientist. She is just a puppet, parroting propaganda. She needs to go back to school.

  8. spike55 says:

    The fact that low-educated twerps like deCaprio and Greta are lauded as figureheads and priests by the AGW bletheren, shows up the AGW meme for exactly what it is…

    A BRAIN-WASHED CULT IDEOLOGY, with zero scientific basis.

  9. ScienceABC123 says:

    Got it. She’s an ignorant know-it-all.

  10. Aussie says:

    Thanks Tony, so Greta is actually the UNs official science expert here?

    Then maybe she can start doing a proper job and reviewing the data, and basing her contributions on the data. But that is a vain hope, she just regurgitates the false message whispered into her ear by her parents (dyed in the wool leftists) and the host of fakers who surround her.

    By the way, came across an excellent video featuring Willie Soon , an actual scientist, and somebody, like you Tony, who is pounding the table and asking for the data to be used rather than slogans and lies.

  11. spike55 says:

    Off topic, but very much relevant

    Tim Ball has won his case against Mickey Mann ! :-)

    Court costs and all. :-)

    Now for the Mark Stein case :-)

  12. Alberta Ed says:

    Sounds like child abuse.

  13. Joe says:

    Good. She stops going to school. Does that mean the brainwashing will end?

  14. Jeremey Lee says:

    I’m sorry but the US is only 2percent of the world’s global surface

    That the high temps in past are higher than now do not say anything about GLOBAL warming

  15. Andy says:

    I take me hat off to her doing this, but this just seems to be another Laura Dekker thing where the parents are the driving force. This time with a twist.

    • Gator says:

      Why would you take your hat off for an alarmist idiot, who is helping noone but herself and those who wish to enslave the rest of us, and starve poor brown people to death Andy Andy?

      Why do you hate poor brown people? Just what kind of stupid are you?

    • spike55 says:

      Certainly twisted and depraved.

      A know-nothing little twerp being used as a figurehead for a giant CON.

      The sort of thing little-andy would fall for. !

  16. Logic n reason says:

    Apparently Greta can ‘see’ CO2. In 1858 in southern France,another uneducated, physically (possibly mentally) ill girl of a similar age saw an apparition of a lady. She saw this vision about 18 times. No one else could see this. She was told to drink the water that arose from a spring. The apparition told the girl she was ‘the immaculate conception’. Bernadette Soubirous was canonized by the pope in 1933 and the site has become a place of pilgrimage. In other words a cult has built up that has made the church and town of Lourdes very wealthy. And all based on the musings of an uneducated teenager. Pope Francis is, no doubt, paving the way for the first ever living saint – St Greta!

  17. Logic n reason says:

    Oops. I should make it clearer that the apparition was referring to herself as ‘the Immaculate Conception’

  18. Eric Barnes says:

    Evil enough to want 99% of people to return to the dark ages while they live like royalty.
