Fox News’ talk show host Laura Ingraham warned that the latest wave of climate activism prompted by advocates like sixteen-year-old Greta Thunberg was “globalist” and “socialism in a new mask.”
On Monday, the host said: “Cede control of our economy, our way of life, our way of transport, how many children you want to have, and if we don’t go along, we will be punished by our own children.”
“Does anyone else find that chilling?” Ingraham asked of Thunberg’s speech at the United Nations.
“The Ingraham Angle” host then compared the teenage Swedish activist’s speech with a segment from the 1984 horror film “Children of the Corn,” in which children are lured to kill the adult residents of a Nebraskan town.
“I can’t wait for Stephen King’s sequel, ‘Children of the Climate,'” Ingraham mocked Thunberg.
The host noted that climate trends showed that the global climate was in a “natural” cycle. Earlier, she said: “The adults who brainwashed these kids should be brought up on charges of child abuse.”
According to NASA, “Ninety-seven percent of climate scientists agree that climate-warming trends over the past century are extremely likely due to human activities,” and not natural cycles as what Ingraham argued.
Pope Francis was also slammed by the host saying that the pontiff provided “moral cover” and “taking the side of the activists” by sending a video about climate change to this year’s United Nations Climate Action Summit held in New York.
Curtis Ingraham criticized his sister’s comments on Twitter, calling it “monstrous behavior.”
“Clearly my sister’s paycheck is more important than the world her three adopted kids will inherit,” he tweeted.
“I can no longer apologize for a sibling who I no longer recognize. I can and will continue to call out the monstrous behavior and the bully commentary born out of anger,” he added.
Thunberg’s UN speech attacked world leaders for their inaction regarding global climate change.
“People are suffering, people are dying, entire ecosystems are collapsing … and all you talk about is money and eternal fairy tales of economic growth. How dare you?” the teen said to world leaders.
