Supporting Hamas will not help reduce CO2 emissions, Greta Thunberg

Climate warrior Greta Thunberg went into overdrive this week, denouncing massive polluter China ahead of the Biden-Xi summit in San Francisco.

Just kidding: she actually went after Israel.

We have to listen to the voices of those who are being oppressed and those who fight for freedom and justice,” he said on stage in Amsterdam after inviting a Palestinian woman to come up next to him.

And: “There can be no climate justice without international solidarity.”

This is not his first such foray either.

Two weeks after the Hamas atrocities of October 7, Thunberg was front and center declaring: “The world needs to speak up and call for an immediate ceasefire, justice and freedom for the Palestinians.”

Aside from the ugly moral deafness that his words show, there are a couple of big and disturbing questions at their core.

First: why is a neuroatypical adolescent considered to have such broad moral authority?

They are certainly not your ideas.

Thunberg is clearly repeating the propaganda her Euro-left parents surrounded her with.

And it is not moral clarity either.

What does supporting Hamas have to do with saving the planet?

In any case, given Israel’s intense high-tech management of its own land and water, a large portion of its water supply is derived from reclaimed waste and desalination; its per capita carbon emissions have plummeted over the past decade; you would think Thunberg would be supporting the Jewish state.

The answer, of course, is that for the left, it really can not support the reduction of CO2 emissions without also siding with a murderous Islamist terrorist cadre.

The heresy of one is indistinguishable from the heresy of the other.

That’s why, time and time again, leftists’ responses are so damn predictable and unitary.

Scratch a climate nut and a Hamas lover bleeds (or a defender of gender extremism, or a crazy person who says mathematics is racist).

For Thunberg, the (evidently FAKE) The statement that climate progress is impossible without “international solidarity” is a matter of inescapable and indisputable truth.

Credit where it’s due: One audience member was so taken aback by Thunberg’s move that she jumped on stage to protest.

And Germany’s Green Party also scolded her.

As long as the left at large follows this truly authoritarian line, the poison at its heart will continue to infect global political discourse.

It is time for Greta – and all her like-minded compatriots and capable parents – to understand that dissent is not a crime.
