OT=Climate alarm is a bigger threat than climate change says Bjorn Lomborg

Hardly. Bjorn Lomborg was the author of "The Skeptical Environmentalist" which was published 19 years ago in 2001. The book was rubbished at the time and subsequently by the scientific community on account of its use of deliberately misleading data and the fact it was mainly opinion masquerading as fact. In the ensuing 19 years Lomberg has been scratching a living wherever he could including the odd newspaper article commissioned by editors with short memories

"Many of us on here" being a small group of embittered old farts, all Brexit supporters, who from the evidence of their posts on here at least have spent their entire lives firing blanks; and so have no children or grandchildren to worry about.
Ideally these would all be ideal Covid fodder were it not for the fact that perhaps not surprisingly, they all appear to live deep in the country and as far away from any human contact as possible

What an extraordinary post. So hate-filled. It's sad that there are people about who can post such stuff.

There's no "hate" involved. The above is a straightforward statement of fact. Or at least purported fact, and the conclusions that can be drawn from them.
The possibility that you may find them unwelcome is unfortunate but that doesn't render them false.
So which of tha above purported facts do you wish to dispute ?
"There's a small group of embittered old farts"
So do you wish to deny that it's (1) a small group, (2) that it consists of old farts i.e men over 60, and that its (3) "embittered" a fact demonstrated most readily in its attitude towards Greta Thunberg, a 17 year old schoolgirl,
"all Brexit supporters"
(4) Do you wish to deny that insofar as their posts on this Group are concerned all the moast rabid climate deniers on this group are also Brexit supporters ?
5) have spent their entire lives firing blanks; and so have no children or grandchildren to worry about.
On the evidence of their posts on this group can you provide specific examples of any of the most prominent climare deniers on this group ever mentioning their children or their grandchildren ?
"Ideally these would all be ideal Covid fodder were it not for the fact that perhaps not surprisingly, they all appear to live deep in the country and as far away from any human contact as possible"
(6) Leaving aside their place of residence are you seriously suggesting that old men should be kept alive indefinitely, at whatever cost even if this is at the expense of future generations admittedly mainly or exclusively consisting of other people's children ?

Hardly. And far from being embittered, I find it astonishing that young people of today, aren't revolting far more than they are.
Basically when you compare the opportunities we older generations have had, in terms of free education, lifetime careers, regular salaries, affordable housing, and hope for the future basically, compared with the shit they have to put up with, and have to look forward to today, there really is no comparison.
More Brexshit I just came across
"Jacob Rees-Mogg says the benefits of leaving the EU may not be felt for 50 years – and he’s not the only Eurosceptic asking the people of Britain to wait patiently "

Yeah, we had to scrimp & save to get anything, now they get it heaped upon them. No comparison indeed.
Salaries now v then? The western world is far wealthier than it was decades ago.
But one thing doesn't change: the amount of rubbish people talk.

"We" ?
You mean yourself and the small number* of posters who you claim to represent, who all get yourselves into such a state, whenever a seventeen year old schoolgirl succeeds in getting herself any media attention ?
If you must know, I find the whole situation rather hilarious myself.
And even if Greta steps down so as to resume her studies, I'm sure there are plenty of equally annoying schoolchildren waiting in the wings, to get up your collective noses.

As you've only been posting in this NG for a short time quite possibly you've misjudged the sentiment of the group overall based solely on the relentless efforts of a relatively small number of climate change deniers and Brexiteers. I don't claim any better knowledge of overall sentiment only that many posters may have possibly recognised that its a complete waste of time trying to argue with such people.

You did. You specifically asked the question on this thread, "Do you wish to deny that insofar as their posts on this Group are concerned all the most rabid climate deniers on this group are also Brexit supporters [&] have spent their entire lives firing blanks; and so have no children or grandchildren to worry about."
Now you've had your answer, you wish you hadn't asked the question, because it made you look silly.

Indeed. steering clear of kids, not being taken in by EU bullshit goes hand in hand with not being taken in by climate bullshit.
There are intelligent people who can think, and there are socialists.

No I haven't. Two of the questions I asked were as follows

I asked for specific examples of posts on this group made ny climate denying Brexit supporting old farts which mentioned their children or granchildren.
I asked (6) questions in all. I even numbered them so as to stop the likes of you from getting confused. As Richard chose not to answer any of them - as he didn't reference any previous posts of his own I have no idea whether he is a climate denying Brexit supporting embittered old fart or not. Have I ?
So whether he has children or grandchildren or not, ot his age for that matter is of no interest to me whatsoever in this context. Whereas for some unaccountable reason, Richard seemed to think it was. Similarly the irrelevance of my own age.
Clearly English comprehension and basic reasoning ability aren't exactly among your strong points; as you've clearly neither understood the meaning and purpose any of the six numbered questions I asked, nor recognised the fact that Richard hadn't answered a single one of them.
In recognition of this fact which I must admit I'd previously overlooked perhaps I should add a new category - so make that "bewildered", embittered, climate denying, brexit supporting, old farts who've been firing blanks their whole lives.

+ another one. And it seems to me that most of the posters here are far more aligned with Lomborg than Thunberg.
