Climate activist Greta Thunberg deletes her ‘end of the world’ tweet

Stockholm [Sweden]March 13 (ANI): Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg has deleted a tweet she made in 2018 expressing concern that unless fossil fuels are phased out by 2023, climate change will “wipe out the entire human race,” Russia Today reported.

In the post, Thunberg quoted a “leading climate scientist” who claimed that if we don’t stop burning fossil fuels within the next five years, “climate change will wipe out all of humanity.” Unknown when the self-described “autistic climate justice warrior” deleted the tweet, US Republican commentator Jack Posobiec first became aware of it on Saturday. Her tweet contained a link to a defunct website, according to Russia Today.

Posobiec received no response from Thunberg herself, but a host of right-wing commentators joined in to let her know that the world continued to exist.

According to American rights activist Brigitte Gabriel, Greta Thunberg deleted this tweet because it exposed her as a fraud. “Make sure everyone sees it.” It is possible that Thunberg did not foresee the extinction of humanity in 2023. She may have said that if fossil fuels were not phased out this year, humanity will become extinct at some unspecified point in the future, as some commentators noted.

The Swedish activist has previously made predictions along these lines. She argued that unless carbon dioxide emissions can be reduced by more than 50 percent by 2030, “irreversible chain reactions beyond human control” will occur in a 2019 speech at the United Nations.

A year later, she made the following statement while addressing the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos: “Humanity has eight years to get completely off fossil fuels.” Environmentalists have a history of making ominous predictions. Experts warned that global cooling would render much of North America uninhabitable by the early 20th century, and in the 1970s biologist Paul Ehrlich predicted that rising temperatures would result in mass starvation in Britain by the year 2000.

In his 2006 documentary “An Inconvenient Truth”, former US Vice President Al Gore predicted that by 2013, hundreds of millions of people would have to flee their homes due to the melting of the polar ice caps. His staff referred to the date as a “ball park” when it seemed unlikely that his forecast would come true.

Notably, climate activist Greta Thunberg was among climate activists arrested during protests against the expansion of a coal mine in Luetzerath on January 18, earlier this year, Russia Today reported. (ANI)
