Every once in a while a clown like Greta Thunberg emerges touting developing countries(60%+ of the world) to stop trying to get developed and shut down their industries, go back to stone age. Such countries obviously give them the middle finger and move on.

Only science, by developing new materials and new forms of energy production can do something, not kids or burocrats.

1.)  I don't recall her saying anything about stopping developing countries from getting developed.

2.)  She's not actually trying to do anything.  Her message was "you have to do something, I'm just a kid who should be in school."

Absolutely nothing. Just make sure we don't pollute our local areas and adopt cleaner energies when it is financially feasible for companies, and the Earth will take care of the rest. The fact is most of the people who push global warming, especially the bureaucrats who alarmists seem to want to have handle trillions of dollars to do something about it, after they have already wasted billions/trillions of dollars on "wars" on things, with nothing to show, don't actually believe it.

Why do I say this? Simple, if you honestly believed that the Earth is going to start to die in 10-12 years, you would change absolutely everything about how you lived. Instead they continue to fly on private jets and buy expensive homes that use way more energy than the average home. Including homes on the beach front, when they go around preaching about how the ocean level is on the rise. Global warming has been co-opted by the Left just to continue their pursuit of attacking businesses that they don't control.

The fact is 20 years from now we'll still be here, with people screaming that we only have 10-12 years to fix it. The same thing that's been happening since the 60s. Of course, back then it was Global Cooling and we needed to put soot on the poles to melt them to encourage heating. We'll see which it will be in 20 years, since we did just have two years of cooling.

>if you honestly believed that the Earth is going to start to die in 10-12 years

No one said the Earth is going to die in 10-12 years.  

> Instead they continue to fly on private jets and buy expensive homes that use way more energy than the average home

I'm personally not a fan of the argument that people need to change the way they live.  I think the best solutions would enhance how they live, not a radical change.  

> Including homes on the beach front, when they go around preaching about how the ocean level is on the rise

1.)  A lot of the supposed beach front properties that I've heard politicians buy are many feet above the sea level.  Even the most extreme models don't show Obama's beachside property getting affected by rising sea levels for several decades.  

2.)  If someone has faith that something will be done about it, then there's less reason to be cautious.  

>Of course, back then it was Global Cooling

Back then the science wasn't settled.  

There were some scientists who suggested that aerosols would lead to cooling.  

Most of the research back then suggested that CO2 would lead to warming. 

The reason why Global Cooling was the mainstream view, is because the media ran with it, not because the majority of scientists did.  

>We'll see which it will be in 20 years, since we did just have two years of cooling.

You must not be familiar with El Niño and La Niña.
