Latvian Eurovision Entry Teaches Greta How to Lecture on the Environment

In contrast to St. Greta’s moany moralising, Guido’s found a far more compelling argument in favour of leading a green lifestyle – from a Latvian Eurovision entrant. Citi Zēni are one of 17 acts competing in the country’s national selection, and have entered the song Eat Your Salad. While a song about meat-free diets and eco-friendly living wouldn’t usually perk Guido up, the opening words certainly grab your attention and the rest of the song keeps it. Best of luck to them…

Greta’s Rockstar Rally at #COP26

At least somebody’s having fun at COP. As the President of the United States nodded off on-camera in the conference hall, Greta Thunberg stood outside to rally the troops and sing a few songs:

“Inside COP there are politicians pretending to take our future seriously […] We say no more blah blah blah, no more exploitation of people, nature and the planet. No more whatever the f*ck they’re doing inside there.”

Maybe now the world leaders will finally listen. At least the ones still awake.

Boris Quotes Greta in COP Speech

Along with quoting Greta, Boris laboured heavily on Glasgow’s James Bond connections:

“Welcome to Glasgow and to Scotland whose most globally famous fictional son is almost certainly a man called James Bond who generally comes to the climax of his highly lucrative films strapped to a doomsday device desperately trying to work out which coloured wire to pull to turn it off while a red digital clock ticks down remorselessly to a detonation that will end human life as we know it and we are in roughly the same position, my fellow global leaders, as James Bond today.”

“we have the opportunity the duty to make this summit the moment when humanity finally began – and I stress began – to defuse that bomb and make this the moment when we began irrefutably to turn the tide and to begin the fightback against climate change”

ScotNats Turn on BBC and Greta over Climate Criticism

Greta Thunberg’s made the cardinal sin of climate activism: daring to attack a left-wing government. Asked by BBC Scotland whether Scotland is a world leader in climate change, the 18-year-old opined:

“No, of course there are countries… there are some who do a bit more than certain others, but then again, if we look at it in a broader perspective, I think that we can safely say that there are no countries at least in the global north that are doing even close to what would be needed”

Contrary to Sturgeon’s insistence that Scotland’s climate change legislation is “world leading”…

The interview only came out a couple of hours ago, yet left-wing independence activists are outraged. Some are denying Greta even said words to such effect, despite there being a video in the article. SNP MP Angus MacNeil was one prominent voice, countering the BBC’s headline with “BBC Scotland News is “Not a world leader of reflecting truth in headlines”

Others have questioned why BBC Scotland would focus on Sturgeon’s government rather than the UK government. Shame those devolved powers come with obligations to be held to account…

Greta herself isn’t coming away unscathed. One pro-Indy tweeter who’s previously voiced concerns about climate change responded, “And I don’t regard Greta Thunberg as a world leader/expert on climate change. Just another person with a big mouth opinion.” Verified game programmer Mike Dailly says Greta’s showing a “lack of understanding of the position Scotland is in”

Looks like Greta may be heading for a frosty reception at COP26…

Greta Says She’s Not Coming & Glasgow’s COP26 Should Be Cancelled

The government is determined to plough ahead with hosting the UN climate conference due to be held in Glasgow this November, despite the fears that the global pandemic will still be raging. The government is hoping for 30,000 attendees from around the world at the conference. You might ask what is it that could not be hosted virtually and save all those jet-setters’ carbon emissions?

Greta Thunberg has told the BBC she does not plan to attend, believes the summit should be postponed, and the UK government – which is hosting the summit – should wait until global vaccination rates have risen. Greta has attended previous COP summits so this will be a blow to world leaders’ photo opportunities. As it stands the government will have to make a final decision on whether or not the event is going ahead in mass-delegate-form soon. Guido suspects they will be trying to ascertain likely attendance rates from world leaders before deciding to go virtual.

Greta Statue Contributes to Acid Rain

The University of Winchester has unveiled a new bronze statue of Greta Thunberg. Titled “Make a Difference”, it is believed to be the “first life-size sculpture” of the activist, and its £24,000 erection follows the woke university declaring “a climate and ecological emergency in 2019″. Guido is reevaluating his opposition to statues being toppled…

Ironically, the 96th ranked university chose to make the statue out of bronze, the smelting process of which is seriously environmentally harmful, producing wastewater, slag, and releasing toxic metals from copper, silver, and iron to cobalt and selenium into the atmosphere. Smelters also release gaseous sulphur dioxide, contributing to acid rain, which acidifies soil and water. Bronze Greta’s stealing her own future…
