Castigating Greta

On Watts' blog Eric Worrall calls Greta Thunberg a "climate messiah."

Delingpole calls her a "climate puppet" and a "Marxist." Earlier he called her St Greta of Thunberg."

In August Aaron Banks in England wrote "Freak yachting accidents do happen in August..."

And of course there have been many insults about her mental health, simply because she is on the autism spectrum and has been open about it.

Sometimes I think these hard core deniers are just worse people human beings.

Here's a song by Frazy Ford inspired by Greta. It's called "The kids are having none of it."

Good tune

Wouldn't it be more accurate to call Greta a "climate apostle"? She isn't creating the message, just spreading it.

Good point. But they're interested in maximum snideness, not maximum accuracy.

I used to judge Debating Society competitions. I always marked down insults and we hominem attacks, mostly because it meant that the speaker had run out of useful arguments.

If they feel the need to insult you, it means that you are winning the debate!
