A conservative group with a history of climate change denial has hired a German YouTuber to challenge Greta Thunberg's 'climate crisis'
"I have good news for you. The world is not ending because of climate change," Seibt says in a YouTube video for the Heartland Institute. "People are being force-fed a very dystopian agenda of climate alarmism that tells us that we as humans are destroying the planet and that we, the young people especially, have no future."

Global warming is a hoax.  Man made climate change is a fraud.  They who advocate these ideas manipulate science and use censorship to suppress other views.  The Competitive Enterprise Institute and The Heartland Institute are correct on individual liberty, competition, capitalism, and environmental matters.  


S E E D E D   C O N T E N T



Naomi Seibt, a German YouTuber, has been hired by a conservative think tank to help spread climate denialism.

  • The Heartland Institute, a conservative think tank with ties to the Trump administration, has a history of promoting climate denialism. 
  • Most recently, the organization has enlisted the help of a 19-year-old German YouTuber named Naomi Seibt and framed her as a challenger to climate activist Greta Thunberg. 
  • Although Seibt detested her "anti-Greta" label, she claims that Thunberg and other youth climate activists are spreading views that are not based on science. 

Nineteen-year-old German YouTube Naomi Seibt says she, too, once believed the world was in the midst of a global crisis and rallied behind environmentalist policies and the uprising of youth climate activism — but not anymore.

Seibt now finds herself on the warring side of Greta Thunberg's climate justice movement, working for a conservative American think tank with ties to the Trump administration to combat what she claims is "climate alarmism." 

"I have good news for you. The world is not ending because of  climate change ," Seibt says in a YouTube video for the Heartland Institute. "People are being force-fed a very dystopian agenda of climate alarmism that tells us that we as humans are destroying the planet and that we, the young people especially, have no future." 

For decades, the Heartland Institute has promoted what it calls "climate realism" and spreading doubts about the overwhelming science supporting human's role in causing climate change. The organization cited "science backing climate realism" from the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change, a riff on the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change which they sponsor themselves. 

One of its senior fellows, William Happer, objected to a US intelligence official's finding that climate impacts could be "possibly catastrophic" when serving on the White House National Security Council, the  Washington Post reported. 

The conservative think tank has recently come under scrutiny for its shadowy funding stream through Donors Trust, an organization that has allowed wealthy contributors to donate millions of dollars to conservative causes anonymously. Mother Jones referred to the organization as the " dark-money ATM of the conservative movement.

recent investigation  by German journalists believed they unveiled a plot by the Heartland Institute to utilize Seibt to undermine climate protection measures in Germany — but James Taylor, the director of the Arthur B. Robinson Center for Climate and Environmental Policy at the Heartland Institute, claims the organization has nothing to hide. 

"We're always looking to advance individual freedom and better human health and welfare in the United States and around the world," Taylor told Insider. "Even for folks who think they need to undercover to get that information for me. I'll be happy to have that interview today."

In a new effort, the Heartland Institute has enlisted the help of a YouTube influencer to continue to "spread the truth" about climate change. The organization has pitted Seibt against the face of the climate justice movement: Swedish activist  Greta Thunberg.

"Greta Thunberg took the world by storm with her doomsday climate predictions. Naomi Seibt, a rising star, advocates for proper scientific discourse over climate change," read a caption on a YouTube video featuring Seibt and Thunberg. "Who seems like the more reasonable advocate to you?"

Naomi Seibt, the self-proclaimed "climate realist"


Seibt's crusade against "climate alarmism" online began in 2019 after Thunberg's activism won her a Nobel Peace Prize nomination and Time Magazine's "Person of the Year" Award, the youngest person to earn the title. In addition to challenging what she calls the "mainstream" climate narrative, Seibt also raised questions about feminism and immigration on her channel that echoed far-right views. 

Her views caught the attention of a conservative German think tank with ties to the nationalist Alternative for Germany, and later Taylor.

Taylor saw Seibt speak at a conference in Germany and believed she could help further Heartland's agenda of advocating for "free markets" and "individual liberties." 

"Here we have a 19-year-old young lady with tremendous poise tremendous intelligence," Taylor told Insider of its decision to hire Seibt as a digital media specialist. "Essentially, we are helping to provide resources so that she can continue to spread the message advocating individual freedom, which includes economic freedom, as well as climate realism."

Seibt, a former "climate alarmist" herself, claimed her skepticism began with Thunberg's own Fridays for Future movement. While she disagrees with Thunberg, she emphasizes that she is not the "anti-Greta."

"I'm not this evil opposite of Greta — she might be a really nice girl and I would love to talk to her someday," she told Insider.

However, Seibt claimed Thunberg and other youth climate justice activists espouse views that are not based on science.

"The main issues that I have with the climate change is the narrative. There's a lot of fear-mongering going on. Climate change is not something we're allowed to question anymore," Seibt said. 

She said her own research suggests that the role of manmade greenhouse gas emissions in destroying the planet has been inflated by the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The international body is made up of world-renowned scientists who have reached a consensus on the detrimental effects of human greenhouse gases and contribute to reports on how to mitigate climate change.

"I do not believe that the climate is changing because of manmade CO2 emissions. And if it was, I don't believe that would have such a detrimental effect," Seibt told Insider, who did not cite where her own research derived from. 

While the 19-year-old believes that the climate is, in fact, changing, she protested the hysteria around the impending climate crisis.  Seibt claimed that the widespread fears about the effects of climate change have not only caused "eco-depression," but has effectively silenced any dissent about the climate crisis.

"To be a scientific skeptic has nothing to be with an authoritarian radical," Seibt, who identified as Libertarian, said. 
"We are not allowed to speak up — people are losing their job in the wake of this supposed 'climate crisis.'"

With the Heartland Institute, she said she hoped to promote climate realism, which claimed is " pro-human ."  

"This mainstream narrative of fear-mongering and climate alarmism is holding us hostage in our own brains," Seibt said in a video for Heartland. "Don't let an agenda that is trying to depict you as an energy-sucking leech on the planet get into your brain and take away all of your passionate spirit."

Climate change denialists lost the fight against climate change when Larry Fink wrote his letter earlier this year to CEOs . Businesses will lead the charge until government has no choice but to follow. Before the letter was even released Microsoft (Mr Fink owns 5% of Microsoft) came out with their plan starting a chain reaction of big businesses that rewrote their business plans and opened their wallets. Not all the plans announced will actually do anything but several of them are significant. The tide turned. Now it's about dollars and business.

What part of overwhelming science needs explained? So you are correct in stating it's all about the money...when corporations invest in the R&D of alternative sources, and the day it becomes economically feasible will be the day we will witness significant change. Hopefully the clock will not have already run out.

And when will that be?  Alternative energy sources will never be able to supply all the demand for energy and power going forward in an economical way.

Coal, oil, and NG will continue to be the products used for the foreseeable future. Anyone who thinks otherwise are the real deniers.

What's next, new and improved solar cells?

New, more efficient solar cells are being developed daily.

Super efficient wind mills?

The wind turbines are already quite efficient, but yes, they'll increase their number and continue to make them more efficient.

Wave action?

Why not? Tidal energy systems could be a reliable untapped renewable resource.

Worldwide geothermal?

In the places it works, of course, tap that renewable energy.

Nationwide hydropower brought by hundreds of new dams?

In most places, dams do more damage to our natural resources and while some are good as they play duel roles in power and runoff/snowmelt/water control, there is a limit to the number of damas that can realistically be built.

Lots of new nuclear plants?

As the technology improves, eventually we could have much smaller and much safer nuclear power plants.

Tell us what to expect, you have all the answers.

You seem to be doing pretty well coming up with realistic renewable energy sources, it would seem you don't need anyone telling you what to expect. It seems you just need to be convinced the investment is worth it.

I have several relatives who've claimed they'll boycott liberal businesses (one was red in the face angry with Starbucks) but when I asked them when the last time was that they actually used said business they have a hard time recalling. Their lack of patronage has little to do with the political stance of the business, it had everything with not being willing to pay $5 for a coffee so regardless of their fantasy boycott the business isn't losing any actual money.

It was always the case that if anybody had any really good ideas they would be adopted and things would move in a direction by necessity. At this point something akin to a green new deal has only in reality convinced us that the folks supporting radical changes in our approach to the environment are experiencing a massive brain fart. Or is that massive cow farts?

Yet another paid Heartland Institute science denier. HI is paid to stoop this low (but you already knew that).

She is an obvious lying shill created to counter Greta Thunberg's truth.

The fact that she uses the term "climate alarmist" (and that she is speaking at the Heartland Institute) shows she knows where her Gucci handbag and Bottega heels are coming from.

This is an embarrassingly huge fail of science denying tactics by the Heartless Institute.

There is a lot of alarmism, hyperbole, and fanatics spreading garbage when it comes to Climate change in general, but the position that humans are causing the earth to change at a more rapid pace then in the past and at a pace that may eventually be to our own determent should not be in question. We all need to band together to clean up pollution and find cleaner ways to produce energy, its just common sense.

That is a given.  However, we need not destroy our economy and way of life to accomplish that.

I have yet to hear one climate change activist tell me exactly how we will "save the planet" from nature and what nature has done previously when we didn't even yet exist as a species, and will do again when we cease to exist.   What or who caused the previous climate changes this planet has experienced?  

Cleaning up after ourselves should have been taught years ago, but then again we are the disposable generations after all.   We got rid of glass bottles because they weighed too much and were too costly to transport and now we have to deal with wax covered non-recyclable cardboard containers.   We change our clothing styles and toss perfectly good clothes into the trash or donate to those not so concerned about current fashion trends.

Our species is it's own worst enemy.

I think it's clear that we are contributing to the climate change problem - but it would have happened eventually even without our accelerating it. And another ice age will eventually come, and the continents will all collide to form one supercontinent again ...  humanity's very existence will be threatened over and over before our sun destroys the Earth.

That doesn't mean we shouldn't do what we can to limit the damage and find cleaner sources of energy, of course. Not that there are any perfect forms of energy.

There are instances, and this is one, where the crisis transcends the 'personal, political, economic'.

To limit the ramifications of the scientific data to one, two, or all three of these points is to ignore the core issue...to the point where eventually we will be left unable to address the calamity in any terms, 'personal, political, or economic'.

We have been warned...what we choose to do going forward is to the benefit/detriment of those to follow.

They utilize anti-scientific methods conclusions they Prefer instead of actually implementing  in the scientific method and they don’t behave like anything but a cult and they certainly shun anybody just as we see here that would present an alternative opinion, so he’ll no, definitely not buying the madness of the crowd.

It can possibly be slowed with serious fixes, but we have already screwed the pooch.

Considering the fact that what long-lived greenhouse gasses are already polluting our atmosphere will be doing so for the next 50+ years, and considering the fact that mankind is still harvesting and burning fossil fuels without even thinking that the long term health of the planet might be more important than short term profit, I hold out no hope of any sort of utopia on this planet.

Shit will be going from bad to worse environmentally. Which will lead to things going from bad to worse on the global political front. Environmental refugees are coming to a town near you. 

I'd actually rather cage AGW deniers than the climate refugees escaping the reality.

But since the president claims science itself is a hoax, I guess his supporters should use clubs to destroy their computers and stop seeding Heartland Institute propaganda online.

A German teenager being touted as the answer to climate activist Greta Thunberg is set to speak to the annual gathering of conservatives at CPAC this week.

Naomi Seibt, who has been called the “anti-Greta,” is set to take the stage at the Conservative Political Action Conference, joining dozens of speakers including President Donald Trump and Vice-President Mike Pence.

(Source: Heartland Institute)

The 19-year-old “climate skeptic” from Münster in western Germany has been tapped by the Heartland Institute which presented her at the UN climate conference in Madrid in December. The conservative think tank hired her to campaign on its views pushing back on the alarms over global warming.

In a video titled “Naomi Seibt vs. Greta Thunberg: Whom Should We Trust?” Seibt revealed she is not a fan of the “anti-Greta” moniker.

“The reason I don’t like the term ‘anti-Greta’ is that it suggests I myself am an indoctrinated puppet, I guess, for the other side,” she said, telling Insider that she is “not this evil opposite of Greta — she might be a really nice girl and I would love to talk to her someday.”

The so-called “YouTube influencer” believes that there is some truth to the climate change arguments but that activists like Thunberg are exaggerating the climate crisis and creating a panic.

“My main problem with the climate change narrative is that most people who protest do not actually know the science behind it,” Seibt told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “It’s terrifying young people and ruining relationships.”

“I don’t want to get people to stop believing in man-made climate change, not at all,” she told the Washington Post. “Are man-made CO2 emissions having that much impact on the climate? I think that’s ridiculous to believe.”

“It is important that we keep questioning the narrative that’s out there instead of promoting it,” Seibt said. “These days, climate change science really isn’t a science at all.”

In a YouTube video for the Heartland Institute, the German teen said, “I have good news for you: The world is not ending because of climate change.”

“People are being force-fed a very dystopian agenda of climate alarmism that tells us that we as humans are destroying the planet and that we, the young people especially, have no future,” she said.(Source: Heartland Institute)

“This mainstream narrative of fear-mongering and climate alarmism is holding us hostage in our own brains,” Seibt said in a Heartland video. “Don’t let an agenda that is trying to depict you as an energy-sucking leech on the planet get into your brain and take away all of your passionate spirit.”

Seibt will be facing her largest audience yet in her address at CPAC, being held outside Washington, D.C. The annual conservative gathering will also feature speeches from White House officials, such as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and counselor to the President, Kellyanne Conway as well as U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell who was just named acting director of national intelligence.

A wide array of Republican lawmakers, including Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, Reps. Matt Gaetz, Jim Jordan, Devin Nunes, Mark Meadows, and Dan Crenshaw as well as Chair of the House Republican Conference Liz Cheney. Media personalities, sports figures and more will also be giving speeches and presentations at the event.  https://www.bizpacreview.com/2020/02/26/anti-greta-teen-activist-to-speak-at-cpac-891438

I well remember the taste of car and bus exhaust growing up in the Philadelphia area but nothing prepared me for life in Los Angeles. Eyes and lungs burning worse than any day on bases in SC when they flew a black flag to limit activity.

Now many, many decades later, having worked in many old military bases, now designated Super Fund Clean up sites, I am amazed at the number of people I have outlived.

Mainly due to strict emission controls on cars , trucks, coal fired power plants, etc. the USA has done a great job turning the tide regionally, but we are not done.

The whole world needs to relearn the same lesson we already have.

This was China's wake up call, December, 2013

512

17 Provinces and 600 million people were directly affected by the accumulation of smog from unbridled

building, industrialization and complete lack of emissions controls in the cars they both built and imported from the USA.

Just as anthropologists can tell if a bone was pre or post Hiroshima, this pollution too, reaches our shore and our lungs.

Many people get all bent out of shape about abortion rights and many of them simply don't give a damn about what

we are all forced to breathe, especially those newborns.
