Of course, but not diagnosed as BPD. And looking at someone wouldn’t lead to such a diagnosis.

So, he had a wrong diagnosis?

I am, quite frankly, very surprised that at WP, with all the focus and brain power we have here, people think that "Anthropogenic Climate Change" is actually a catastrophic crisis.

I highly suggest that those of you whom are scientifically minded start looking at the IPCC's actual reports and data, and the climate science itself, and start ignoring the media and politicians on this one.

I was a card carrying believer in 2004 to the point of buying carbon credits to offset my carbon footprint. I am not anymore, now that I have had the chance to see 100% of their predictions fall flat, and I have looked deeply into the mathematics, models and politics behind all of it.

As far as GT is concerned, watch her live interview on a panel of other young people to see her extemporaneous and unscripted. It appears to me that she was coached, and was acting the entire time she was on camera. There is nothing wrong with that, of course. But her parents should be seriously scolded for using their daughter like that... by exposing her to the winds of politics at such an age... I doubt that GT will be able to withstand what is coming her way, or the fact that not too long from now, she will be discarded as yet another poster child who grew up and became irrelevant.

Have you all forgotten the terrible yearning to "fit in"? The desperate seeking of "approval"? The almost terrifyingly powerful need to belong, and not belonging? The holding on to whatever little scraps you were fed of acceptance? Have you forgotten the pain of what it was like to be discarded?

Perhaps not all of us have experienced this, but I understand it is common, and it happened to myself. For her parents to use her like this.. it is shameful. Greta did nothing wrong. It is her parents, and the extended family and State, as well as the UN that have some answering to do for this travesty of abuse.

Not sure what that could mean, but it only proves that wrong diagnoses are made.

Well, that's it. Wrong diagnoses do happen.
My own history is even worse in this aspect. :?

I get the impression that most of the people who go on about climate change only have a rudimentary understanding of it, that doesn't really extend beyond what they read in The Guardian and similar sources. I think they let themselves be conditioned to not challenge it, to not have any doubts. And to denounce anyone who does.

The same could rightly be said about those that deny the effects of climate change . I personally don't know what to believe . Are those talking about climate change ,and its effects, completely wrong or are they merely wrong with regards to the degree and timescale of what will happen?

The thing that stands out is that it's a very emotive subject whatever side of the fence you're on .

This event was yesterday, at my school.

A lot of people with brain power and focus have concluded that it is a catastrophic crisis. And a present one, not a future one. Climate-induced migrations are going on right now, with people forced to leave their homes in the Middle East, Central America and the South Pacific.

Im no expert but personally i have done a whole lot of in depth research on climate change for the past several years and made it the focus of my senior thesis and did a 30 minute presentation about climate change and its effects on species loss and the sixth mass extinction. Specifically with regards to recent global warming trends.

It IS a legitimate issue that is happening right now and primarily human induced.
