DISINFO: Climate activists want to destroy progress in the name of green faith
Climate activists don’t appreciate the progress their parents and grandparents have made with sweat on their faces. They don’t realise that they are so well off right now, not because of their own diligence, but because of this legacy, which they want to destroy in the name of green faith. Ecologism, not ecology! It is precisely thanks to previous generations that university occupiers and fans of the terrifying Greta can travel easily, enjoy technological progress, and democracy as well.
This is a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation effort to delegitimise climate activism and propagate denialism about climate change. Climate change is a scientific fact. Humans are increasingly influencing the climate and the earth's temperature by burning fossil fuels, cutting down rain-forests and farming livestock. This adds enormous amounts of greenhouse gases to those naturally occurring in the atmosphere, increasing the greenhouse effect and global warming. Preventing dangerous consequences of the climate change is the key priority for the EU. This claim also attacks Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg, who is a frequent target of pro-Kremlin disinformation. See earlier cases claiming that Greta Thunberg is a political tool, that the climate mafia is exploiting Greta Thunberg to lower living standards, and that Greta Thunberg is a prophet of a new totalitarian wave equalling to radical Islam.
