6 Years Later: Greta Thunberg’s Deleted DOOMSDAY Tweet Raises Questions

Climate Alarmists.

They all expect us to jump on their bandwagon.

But what happens when they can’t even get their facts straight?

Enter Greta Thunberg.

The 21-year-old Swedish activist poster child of the Left.

Back in 2018, she gave humanity a five-year deadline to ditch fossil fuels or face extinction.

Well, “fossil” fuels haven’t been ditched so technically, even if the climate alarmists are right, it’s too late to do anything about it.

They can put down the protests signs and go home. It’s too late for us, according to their math.

The Gateway Pundit reports:

How do climate alarmists expect the rest of us to care about their cause when they can’t even distribute information from experts accurately?

Internationally known climate alarmist Greta Thunberg, the 21-year-old Swede with a penchant for leftist causes, warned the world in 2018 that mankind had five years to stop using fossil fuels or all of humanity will be wiped out.

The since-deleted social media post — a tweet on the platform then known as Twitter — can be found via a screenshot from another post below.

While Thunberg’s post did not say humanity would end in five years — we did make it past 2023 after all — there was one glaring problem with it. The article that Thunberg linked misquoted the scientist who made the relevant remarks.

In January 2018, James Anderson, a professor of atmospheric chemistry at Harvard, gave a speech that was covered by Forbes.

Anderson remarked in that speech on damage he claimed climate change is doing to the “permanent ice” at the Earth’s poles, and its implications for the globe, according to Forbes.

“The chance that there will be any permanent ice left in the Arctic after 2022 is essentially zero,” he said, according to Forbes. “Can we lose 75-80 percent of permanent ice and recover? The answer is no.”

The Forbes article was published Jan. 15, 2018.

On Feb. 19, 2018, Grit Post — a leftist online publication with the motto “real news for the working class” — used the Forbes piece as its source for a now-deleted article with the headline: “Top Climate Scientist: Humans Will Go Extinct if We Don’t Fix Climate Change by 2023.”

Its lede sentence declared: “A top climate scientist is warning that climate change will wipe out all of humanity unless we stop using fossil fuels over the next five years.”

(The article has been deleted, but internet archives last forever.)

That was the report Thunberg quoted.

In a 2023 article, The Assocated Press took a look at the controversy surrounding Thunberg’s deleted post — and defended Thunberg, naturally, as a victim of bad sourcing and nasty attacks from conservative websites.

In remarks to the AP for that report, Anderson pushed back against Grit Post’s framing of his speech. He stated, “the ‘wiping out of humanity by 2022’ is a total distortion of what I said or meant at the University of Chicago colloquium in 2018. I would never make such a statement.”

Funny how all these protestors never mention China and their pollution. I wonder why?

Here’s another journo pushing the climate hoax.

I’m not sure why I’m writing this article.

Is anyone out there still alive to read this? Greta, can you hear me? Did you make it?

Send me a smoke signal. One puff if you’re alive, no puffs if you didn’t make it.

Well, I guess it’s just me then that survived the wrath of the climate change.
