    That's why she's a saint. I called it!

    “My daughter can see CO2 with the naked eye”



    According to her mother Malena Ernman (48), 16-year-old Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg can see CO2 with the naked eye. She writes that in the book ‘Scenes from the heart. Our life for the climate’, which she wrote with her family.

    Greta was diagnosed as a child with obsessive-compulsive disorder and Asperger’s syndrome, just like her younger sister Beata. The activist also has a photographic memory. She knows all the capitals by heart and can list all the chemical elements of the periodic table within one minute. In addition, she has another gift according to her mother. “Greta is able to see what other people cannot see,” writes Malena Ernman in the book. “She can see carbon dioxide with the naked eye. She sees how it flows out of chimneys and changes the atmosphere in a landfill.”

    Learning about climate change at a young age caused a landslide in Greta’s environment. She was eight years old when she first saw photos and images about the plastics in the oceans on television and at school and heard that global warming is caused by human activity.

    “Greta suddenly stopped eating one day after another,” her mother writes. “Because of an eating disorder, we had to count the number of gnocchis in her plate to see if she did get enough. And to eat a third of a banana, it took them an hour.” Greta stopped going to school, cried constantly and only spoke to her parents, sister and one teacher. At the age of eleven, she slipped into depression.

    She only crawled out of that valley when she felt heard by her family. Gradually she was able to convince her parents to lower the heating, to stop eating meat. In the meantime, the family lives vegan, they have their own vegetable garden outside the city and they only drive their electric car if they deem it necessary. Her mother also no longer flies – however, an internationally renowned opera singer.

    In 2009, Malena Ernman represented Sweden at the Eurovision Song Contest, but now she chose a career close to home in Stockholm. Her father Svante, an actor, was named after his great-grandmother’s cousin: Born in 1859, Svante Arrhenius was the first to predict how an increase in CO2 will cause a greenhouse effect.

    Just so we're clear: as far as I can tell this is fake news which spread quickly in the past few days. Greta's mother never said this.

    Quite a feat, considering CO2 makes up about 0.041% of the air we live and breathe. I wonder if she can see all the argon as well, which constitutes 0.93%. Or the oxygen and nitrogen, which makes up 21% and 78%, respectively.

    Youth Is Wasted on the Idealists

    by Theodore Dalrymple



    Source: Takimag

    There are several public figures from whose faces I feel compelled to avert my gaze, so irritating do I find them, among which are those of Messrs. Blair of Britain and Trudeau of Canada, La Compasionaria of New Zealand Jacinda Adern, and the Scottish nationalist leader Nicola Sturgeon, whose visage has all the charm and good humor of reinforced concrete.

    But by far the ghastliest of contemporary visages imperative to avoid for the sake of my peace of mind is that of the Swedish pigtailed prig Greta Thunberg. If there were a Nobel Prize for self-satisfaction she would be without competitor. She is the very Mozart of self-righteousness. Her Wikipedia entry tells us that she was once diagnosed with selective mutism; if only she would select mutism a little more often! I have many different ideas of hell, and one of them is now to be harangued by little 16-year-old St. Greta for 10 billion years without interruption. Brezhnev was Oscar Wilde by comparison.

    Youth, contrary to the common misconception, is not a time of idealism, at least in the Western world, but of the utmost and uncompromising egotism. This egotism has two poles, so to speak, like magnetic north and magnetic south: libertinism and priggery. They are both self-indulgent, but in slightly different ways, the libertines and the prigs. Neither pole is very attractive, but perhaps priggery (to which I regret to say that I was inclined when young, and still have to control a natural tendency to censoriousness) is the worse. Rather Falstaff than Malvolio.

    Anyway, idealism is a much overestimated quality. There are many virtues—bravery, for example—whose value depends on the things to which they are attached. Idealism is of this ilk. Islamic terrorists such as the Sri Lanka bombers were undoubtedly idealists to the nth degree; they were prepared to lay down their lives for their ideals, but it happens that their ideals were both evil and stupid. Give me a hypocrite, an opportunist, or a cynic any day in preference to such idealists.

    The attention and deference accorded to the pigtailed prodigy (who surely, in mitigation of her ghastliness, must have been manipulated by people older than she) is not her fault, nor is it surprising that at her age she has little idea of the complexities and intractability of the world, or of the ironies of life, let alone of its tragic dimension. But she is protected by her age from attack: I mean, of course, public counterargument or vigorous cross-questioning, not the death threats to which her parents have been subjected, a testimony to the temper of our times. Instead, she has been treated almost obsequiously, as an oracle. She is a sage by default, as it were, because anyone who questioned her in a searching, let alone an aggressive, way would be regarded as a kind of child-abuser.

    The adulation and seriousness (or perhaps I should say earnestness) with which the Western world has received little Greta’s lucubrations is indicative of a crisis of authority, moral and intellectual. But she is far from alone. Two days ago, for example, I was traveling on a bus to take the train to the airport. A young man and woman, both about 19 or 20, got on. The young woman had one of those penetrating female voices that one sometimes hears in restaurants that, without being extremely loud, is able to cut through any level of noise and not only make itself heard, but make it impossible to hear (or listen to) anything else.

    She told her companion—they were on their way to college or some other institution of lower learning—that she had joined in the climate-change demonstrations in London, which had caused a fair degree of chaos and inconvenienced many thousands of people. She said that she had gone to the demonstration to stand up and be counted, as if she had done something terribly brave like being a conscientious objector during the First World War. Her companion was skeptical: What about the suffering she and her fellow demonstrators inflicted on thousands of people going about their ordinary business? I warmed to the decent young man.

    She said, predictably, that while she regretted any inconvenience to others, the only way to make the government listen was to create chaos. She was certain that the end justified the means because the end was as real and tangible to her as the hand before her face—she allowed not a hint of doubt to enter her mind.

    The two of them passed on to other subjects. For some reason, the young man mentioned someone who had been to a pawnshop.

    “What’s a pawnshop?” asked the young woman.

    He tried to explain it to her. She had never even heard of such an institution.

    “I don’t know everything yet,” she said with a kind of disarming naivete. She said there were lots of words she didn’t know. She thought that with age she would become more and more omniscient instead of ever more aware of the scale of her own ignorance. Then the two of them began to compare their knowledge of German (his) and Spanish (hers) that they were learning by counting up to ten in their respective languages. There was now a kind of childlike innocence to their conversation, and when they alighted the bus—they too were going to the station—they hopped about like spring lambs.

    There was a strange disjunction between the young woman’s—the girl’s—awareness of her own immaturity and her belief that she was qualified to demand of the government radical changes whose uncertain consequences she had almost certainly not considered in any depth.

    When I arrived in Paris (my destination), I read in the newspaper the story of a young man, age 24, a Marxist from a bourgeois home, who had arrived back in France after he had fought in Syria against the Islamic State on behalf of the Kurds. Now he had a job in the French state apparatus. He was quite clear—perhaps clearer than he meant to be—that he had gone to Syria because he had found his life in France mundane and lacking in purpose. Though he would no doubt deny it furiously, his quest had been fundamentally a religious one.

    Everywhere there is pressure to lower the voting age. This, of course, would be a measure in favor of soft totalitarianism. Surely the voting age should be raised?

    Leftists are athiests... but to traditionalists they claim that their anti-white communist agenda is "from God." Right. And you'd better not try to argue with them, because that would be "hate speech" and you would be imprisoned.

    Are we there, yet?
    Most people think as they are trained to think, and most people make a majority.

    Someway that's pretty funny (or comic) as Swedish (same as all Scandinavians) are one of the least religious people in Europe. But who knows, maybe some fanatics can even take that seriously.

    Or some fanatics outside of Scandinavia.

    Humans exhale 4% CO2, if she could really see the gas, she'd be walking around in a constant mist.

    Greta is receiving an honorary doctorate at the university in Mons, Belgium and is on the Forbes list of the 100 most influential persons.

    Her mother is a famous opera singer in Sweden and has of course had her hand in pushing Greta into the public eye.

    You're no doubt all wondering what's going on with our favorite gang of saints.

    St. Greta hangs out with Arnold Schwarzenegger these days. And she appeared on the cover of Time this month.







    Not all is well in Flanders. The Holy Anuna and her former sidekick, the blessed Kyra, seem to have split ways entirely. "But that's normal", according to Kyra. Because "we don't see each other much these days." She's doing her own thing now and she seems happy not to be handmaiden/"St. Anuna's fat friend" any longer.

    The blessed Kyra was very upset with Flanders voting for the nationalists instead of the greens on election day last sunday, completely destroying her movements' momentum and, well, basically revealing that Flanders views her former holy best friend Anuna and herself as spoilt rich kids and hence false prophets. Which is kind of odd, because until election day the both of them maintained that their movement was apolitical - but apparently it wasn't, surprise, surprise. And it's quite possible that both Anuna and Kyra are responsible for the green fiasco in Flanders, as people (who aren't journalists) are obviously fed up with the both of them and may not have voted for the greens just to spite our modern day saints.

    With their movement derailed and exposed as a fringe thing it looks like the end of the road for the girls, they'll have to find another way to gain fame and free stuff. Luckily, there's one more consolation prize, handed out by leftist artists: they won the "Arkprijs van het vrije woord", it's an annual trophy which they received for their "courageous free speech".

    It should be S:t Greta as S:t is the proper Swedish abbreviation of "saint".

    St. stands for "stor", i.e. great or large. Or adult. And that she is not.
