Greta Thunberg And Naomi Seibt: Climate Girls

Share this post

Greta Thunberg. We have all seen the images. A young girl is sitting in front of the Swedish parliament, boasting a sign ‘Skolstrejk,’ or ‘school strike.’ Or the photos of this very same girl crossing the Atlantic on a climate-neutral yacht. Or her speech at the United Nations, calling out world leaders for not taking action and destroying the world that she will have to grow up in. Meet Greta Thunberg.

Greta Thunberg And Naomi Seibt: The Poster Girls

Then, there’s the ‘anti-Greta,’ German climate skeptic (or, as she calls it, ‘realist’) Naomi Seibt. This 18-year-old high school student has quickly grabbed fame with her outspoken criticism of both Greta Thunberg and everything she stands for. Claiming that Greta Thunberg never talks about the science, Naomi Seibt explains her views with a wisdom beyond her age: opinions that seem to confirm her world view, a belief in which human-made climate change isn’t real. Some are calling the German teen a nationalist, while others see her as a source of inspiration.

Greta Thunberg And Naomi Seibt: Pliable Puppets


                                                Greta Thunberg or Naomi Seibt: Climate Alarmism vs Realism

 

While the climate activists are hailing Saint Greta Thunberg as their patron, the climate deniers seem to have embraced Naomi Seibt as their darling. Both well-spoken, blonde, clever girls who look non-threatening representatives of a generation most likely to suffer the consequences - or lack thereof - of climate change. Well-educated schoolgirls who appear to have raised their voices out of innocence and genuine concern for where the world is headed. Or this is what they want you to think because these girls have one other thing in common: the fact that they are ultimately being controlled by one or several puppet masters.

And no, I am not saying that Greta Thunberg and Naomi Seibt are pliable puppets. They are probably genuinely invested in the matter and do speak from the heart. Yet there is no denying that some people are hiding behind these innocent shields to push their own, far less cuddly agenda.

Greta Thunberg And Naomi Seibt: Young Girl As The Poster Child For Change

Let’s look at Greta first. A 17-year-old from Stockholm, Sweden, who grew up in an upper-class family. Her mother is a well-known opera singer, while her father is an actor and descendant of Svante Arrhenius, the scientist who actually ‘discovered’ the greenhouse effect.

Greta Thunberg and her parents

Greta Thunberg claims to have learned about climate change when she was eight years old, instantly feeling drawn to the issue in a somewhat compulsive manner - Greta Thunberg has Asperger’s syndrome, accounting for some of her quirks and her confrontational nature. Then, she convinced her parents to reduce their carbon footprint - telling them to eat vegan, recycle, and give up air travel. Or this is how the story goes.

There’s more to it, though. It is not as if Greta Thunberg woke up one day, thinking that she had to start her ‘school strike’. No! She won a climate change essay contest of Swedish newspaper Svenska Dagbladet, which led to her getting in touch with Bo Thorén from Fossil Free Dalsland, an environmental group fighting climate change. Greta Thunberg attended some of their meetings, in which Bo suggested that school children could strike for the climate - an idea that she took to heart and stuck by. Yet this does not make the school strike her concept, but an adult’s.

Then there’s the Swedish start-up ‘We Don’t Have Time,’ led by a PR-specialist, Ingmar Rentzhog, that has a vested interest in Greta Thunberg: he claims to have met her in front of the Swedish parliament accidentally, yet this does not appear to be a coincidence - nor was the article in the Aftonbladet newspaper that first mentioned her, a mere hour or so after Rentzhog wrote about her on his Facebook. It is not surprising that rumors go around that he, powered by his finance and banker investors, actually created the fairytale hype surrounding the girl.

Naomi Seibt: Climate Change Deniers Darling

Then, let’s zoom in on Naomi Seibt. She, too, carries the air of an innocent girl merely fighting for her future. This teenage student from Münster, Germany, has sprouted some rather radical ideas and views - including some that could be labeled as anti-Semitic. Yet her girly looks and innocent big eyes seem to soften somehow the impact of her climate change denying message.

Naomi Seibt has risen to a status that even allowed her to speak at the CPAC, or Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington D.C., alongside President Trump and other notoriously right-wing activists and politicians. She is also employed by the Heartland Institute, a conservative think-tank organization from the United States known for its hardline and libertarian views. Through her - paid and coached - association with this institute, she gets to speak at events and is decidedly getting her platform. A platform that seemingly thrives on the association with Greta.

The Heartland Institute has chosen a smart advocate for her platform. Grown men bullying and talking down a girl like Greta does not go over so well in the media - just look at the outrage Trump caused when he stated Greta Thunberg had some kind of anger issues and picked on the teen via Twitter. Yet a contemporary that is strikingly alike in the background, looks, and motivation is a much better pawn - excuse the word - to play this game with.

There's Always An Ulterior Motive

This is what it comes down to. As genuine and real as girls like Greta Thunberg and Naomi Seibt sound, they are ultimately always backed by someone who has some kind of vested interest in the situation at hand - be it political, financial, or otherwise. These are the people who kickstarted the platform that those girls now happily use, and are the ones footing the bills for their sometimes rather extravagant travel needs - like Greta’s Thunberg journey across the Atlantic and Naomi’s Seibt current parade around conservative conferences. 

Sad, but true: there’s always an ulterior motive. This time it just comes packaged like innocent looking girls.

I have some points of view I would like to get out into the public. These are 100% scientific analyses which to me would be worth public scrutiny asking questions about the warmist narrative ie: they are on the sceptical side not warmist side. However, both your "about" section and the tone of this article seems to me to indicate a strong pro warming bias. Is there any point in me submitting an article? A reply by email would be very much appreciated.
