Comedy Climate hypocrisy

with 5 comments

Climate strike activist tells people that flying to Fiji for a holiday is not acceptable. Then admits to HPDA that she went there on holiday a few months before. It is a hilarious interview. Must listen

When I first heard this, I thought it was hilarious but felt some sympathy for a young woman. She sounds like a good-hearted person, albeit utterly misguided.

Clearly, she has (at least one) parent to blame. Her mother writes a cry bullying response, clearly missing the point. Her daughter was interviewed on public television about her views and was shown up.

Commentators like du Plessis-Allan don’t give a shit about climate change. They don’t care that Arctic ice is melting at four times the expected rate, or that we are seeing more and more extreme weather events killing and displacing people across the globe.

Turns out that the mother is (allegedly) so hypocritical and blind that she had a helicopter fly her new kitchen bench to her home whilst spouting this crap. That gets even better. The mother teaches her daughter to pretend to believe in climate change but will do nothing whilst expecting the rest of to change our behaviour. GTFOH.

  1. “More extreme weather events” is simply a lie, the opposite is in fact true.

  2. The helicopter is connected with Mellissa Clark-Reynolds, not Rose Cook, the mother of this girl.

    Still, looking at their background via Izzy’s, I’d bet the Cook’s are fairly wealthy so with a large and secure Trust Fund undoubtedly in her future I’m sure Izzy Cook will be a splendid Green Party candidate circa 2035.

    • By 2035 reality will have caught up with this child I suspect.

      Empires throughout history have been built by the people who have the greatest ability to harness energy

      Firstly manpower, next came horsepower, in the Netherlands wind power allowed them to dominate for a century or so but it was the harnessing of coal power that Great Britain was able to create her Empire, coal gave way to oil and the British Empire was subsumed by the American Empire which currently reigns supreme and only does so only because it has been able to enforce that trade in Energy is conducted in the USD.

      But those days are coming to an end…

      … and things are getting messy.

  3. Heh…

    If you’re out there advocating for any type of “change,” especially something this big, you’re going to be subjected to scrutiny whether you’re a teenage sensation or a veteran of the protest circuit. It’s just that simple. You don’t get a pass because you’re a teenager.

    How this should go is for adults to do the arguing and debating rather than to send a 16-year old teenager to do their bidding for them.

    But of course that’s the whole point; these people send out teenage activists so they can shut down any and all criticism of their actions.
