Greta Thunberg’s 15 minutes of fame has exposed her to scrutiny – and it’s revealing a troubling lack of candor on the part of the youth activist. In fact, it appears that Thunberg and her cohorts are peddling inaccurate views that are causing hysteria.
Michael D. Shellenberger, President of Environmental Progress, debunked the false claims peddled by Thunberg during his testimony in front of the House Committee On Science, Space, and Technology on the science of climate change.
Shellenberger first went into his credentials when it came to environmental science saying, “I am an energy analyst and environmentalist dedicated to the goals of universal prosperity, peace, and environmental protection.”
Then he went on to debunk the hysterical assertions that the world as we know it will come to an end in 12 years, saying, “No credible scientific body has claimed climate change threatens the collapse of civilization much less the extinction of the human species. And yet some activists, scientists, and journalists make such apocalyptic assertions.”
Thunberg had previously made the claim that “We are in the beginning of a mass extinction.” But those claims are scientifically inaccurate.
Hopefully, the research of Shellenberger will inform more people and the hysteria will end.
