Historian Niall Ferguson slammed Greta Thunberg in Davos and wondered why “I don’t see her in Beijing or London” and her climate change hypocrisy. Ferguson, the Stanford University Hoover Institution Senior Fellow, questioned why the appeal of young activists is not targeted at the main polluters in the world.

So why are the big polluters ignored?

Summit News reports: Teenage environmentalist Thunberg spoke at yesterday’s global confab, in which she said, “Our House remains on fire. Summit News reports. Your actions fuel the flames every hour. We are still asking you to be in distress and live as though you cherished your children first of all. “Thunberg added,” We don’t want to do such stuff in 2050, 2030, or even 2021. Ferguson, a senior fellow at Stanford Hoover University, wondered why Thunberg was not delivering his letter to the biggest polluters on the planet.

“60% of CO2 pollution from the birth of Greta Thunberg can be traced to China… but no one speaks about it. They talk like its Europeans and Americans who will fix this problem somehow… which is frustrating because it’s not at the heart, “Ferguson said.

“We have to restrict China and India if you are concerned about reducing CO2 emissions and rising temperatures,” said he. He noted that while Greta is traveling to New York and Davos, “I do not see her either in Beijing or Delhi.” Ferguson was right. Consider the United Kingdom, for example.

“The UK has peaked its CO2 emissions in 1973 and are now at its lowest level since Victorian times,” the Spectator reports. “Since then, air pollution has declined and sulphur dioxide levels have dropped by 95%. The population of Britain is increasing, but our consumption of energy in 2001 peaked and has since dropped by 19%.
