Video med hele Greta Thunbergs tale og Politikens introduktion fra Klimamarch 25. maj 2019 ved Christiansborg, København.

Ja, Greta Thunberg siger selv, at hun har Asperger. Men ifølge den irske psykiatriprofessor Michael Fitzgerald var H.C.Andersen og Ludwig van Beethoven begge Asperger-autister. Asperger-autist og professor i dyrevelfærd Temple Grandin skriver i sin autist-selvbiografi, at hvis der ikke var nogle "Asperger-gener", ville vi ikke have Silicon Valley. (Læs mere i BioNyt nr. 167, som er et temanummer om autismespektrum).

Greta Thunberg holdt en stærk tale på godt engelsk og med stærk stemmeføring. Nogle er bekymrede for hende, og om hun bliver udnyttet, men netop det at handle, hvilket hun jo gør, er faktisk en form for terapi.

Nogle har ment, at hun nok ikke skrev sine taler selv, og det sagde man også om Temple Grandin, den første person (og første kvinde) som skrev en selvbiografi om det at være Asperger-autist: ("Jeg er autist", originaltitel: "Emergence: Labeled Autistic", 1986). Og, ja, H.C:Andersen skrev jo sine tekster selv.

Der er det særlige ved Asperger-autister, at de ikke nødvendigvis gør, "som man plejer at gøre". De kan have en evne til at beskrive denne verden "som en antropolog fra Mars, som det er blevet udtrykt (af Oliver Sacks). Nogle af disse mennesker kan noget, som samfundet har brug for. Greta Thunberg er en af dem, som verden har brug for. (Ole Terney, BioNyt Videnskabens Verden)

Artikel fra Ritzau om Greta Thunbergs
tale 25. maj 2019 i København




Attack on science is underway throughout the US government.

ordered that scientific assessments produced  use only computer-generated climate models that project the impact of climate change through 2040, rather than through the end of the century, as had been done previously

.. that would give a misleading picture because the biggest effects of current emissions will be felt after 2040.

Models show that the planet will most likely warm at about the same rate through about 2050. From that point until the end of the century, however, the rate of warming differs significantly with an increase or decrease in carbon emissions.

Government scientists used computer-generated models in their most recent report to project that if fossil fuel emissions continue unchecked, the earth’s atmosphere could warm … and lead to drastically higher sea levels, more devastating storms and droughts, crop failures, food losses and severe health consequences.

…  such worst-case scenario projections will not automatically be included in the National Climate Assessment or in some other scientific reports produced by the government.

“What we have here is a pretty blatant attempt to politicize the science — to push the science in a direction that’s consistent with their politics,” said Philip B. Duffy, the president of the Woods Hole Research Center, who served on a National Academy of Sciences panel that reviewed the government’s most recent National Climate Assessment. “It reminds me of the Soviet Union.”

.. the goal of political appointees in the Trump administration is … creating a new climate review panel. That effort is led by a 79-year-old physicist who  … has become better known in recent years for attacking the science of man-made climate change and for defending the virtues of carbon dioxide — sometimes to an awkward degree.
