    It’s sad that history will show that war mongers and exploited children are among the prize winners, yet those who actively seek shutting down wars are totally ignored.

    • Henning Nielsen says:

      Now then Dave, remember that there can be no peace without war. What should we do with our Peace Prize if the world was at, eh…peace?

    • Robert Gipson says:

      Well, Dave, warmongers and child exploiters go hand-in-hand. ‘Greta of 1991’ was “Nurse Nayirah” who testified to Congress that she witnessed Iraqi soldiers pulling infants “out of ..incubators and left them to die on the cold floor.” Of course, she saw no such thing, was not a nurse (she was the daughter of Kuwait’s ambassador), and was hired by the infamous PR firm Hill & Knowlton, who in the 1980s had…hmm…also hatched the term “climate change.”

  2. Henning Nielsen says:

    Greta is well past her childhood by now (age 16), only two years from voting age (and from joining the Swedish Military, should she so wish). She never tells us how her childhood was destroyed, that should make a good story, no? The fact that she looks and sounds more like a child than a teenager is no reason for not asking her to act her age. Two years from adulthood, she is. Who would believe it?

    However, if she does win the Peace Prize (as a Norwegian, I would feel deeply shamed), will she drop the climate conference in Chile (2-13 dec.), to get to Oslo by Dec. 10th, to receive the prize? And will she use another sailboat again?

    Maybe you could tell her you’ve found it and give it back to her. I hope she has a solar powered air conditioner to protect her from the awful heat.

    You should have a ‘Dear Greta’ page where people can tell Greta about their childhoods. My enduring memory is of cold, living in a house without a toilet or bathroom, trying to sleep in a room at -10ºc, in bed with gloves on, getting our first fridge in 1962 when I was 9 years old, just one fireplace and no hot water for washing.

      Indeed Tim Spence,
      Same as my memories…
      With half the houses lit by mains coal gas and oil lamps and the rest by unreliable electricity supplies. Those that had the money bought kerosene heaters ensuring not only some heating but plenty of damp and acrid fumes.
      The ‘upgraded’ metal framed windows ensured frost build up inside the room overnight. And every room drafty and/or damp in buildings with no effective insulation.

    The sad thing is she is working for the same kind of people that took Anne Frank’s childhood away.

  6. MGJ says:

    I don’t doubt for one moment that she has had her childhood stolen, just not in the way that she has been told. Unless she can escape from her toxic parents and associates then get a decade of high quality therapy then I don’t see adulthood being anything to look forward to either.

    No Nobel prize for Gerta. HOW DARE THEY???

  8. Jimmy Haigh says:

    Imagine giving the Nobel peace Prize to a guy who has actually been doing something for real peace?!

    Tony , you hit a bulls eye, Gerta Thunberg is a contrivance , poor Ann Frank was an awful tragedy. While I was stationed in German I visited Belsen were Ann in buried , take it from me it really is a very upsetting place . You walk through the mounds of the dead , written in German on a concrete plinth is the total number of dead 50000 tote etc. It’s also strange that the grass doesn’t grow it’s sort of crabit weed which grows , it probably has something to do with flamethrowers they used to burn the camp on liberation and kill of typhus /cholera . The local German say it is a place where no bird flys. Perhaps Thunberg should be taken to Belsen to see what a real horror looks like, not some made up BS from a bunch of grubby tricksters. Anyway it brought back memories.

    Donna has a good collection of Greta memes contrasting greta with some less fortunate children.
