Greta Thunberg, PhD Theology

It’s not a report from Babylon Bee, or an April first joke.  It’s an upcoming ceremony at University of Helsinki. At least they get the field of knowledge right, no one outdoes her as a true believer, despite being a school dropout. From Daily Caller Greta Thunberg To Receive Honorary Doctorate Degree In Theology From University Of Helsinki.  Excerpts in italics with my bolds and added images.

Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg will receive an honorary doctorate degree in theology from the University of Helsinki in Finland on June 9, the school announced in a press release.

Thirty “distinguished individuals” from around the world will be awarded the university’s “highest recognition,” according to a March 20 press release. The Faculty of Philosophy, the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, the Faculty of Theology and the Faculty of Law will all give out honorary doctorates. Thunberg is the only individual listed as an “activist” who is receiving a degree, the announcement shows.

Thunberg, 20, gained popularity in 2018 when she refused to attend class until the Swedish general elections took place due to her concerns about climate change. She made international headlines again when she spoke at the United Nations in 2019, accusing politicians of stealing her childhood. Most recently, Thunberg came under scrutiny for deleting a years-old Tweet citing a claim that humans would go extinct if fossil fuels were still being used by 2023. [ So much for her prophetic credentials.]

Thunberg previously received an honorary doctorate law degree in 2021 from the University of British Columbia. [Yikes! A Preacher and a Lawyer.]

The University of Helsinki did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller’s request for comment.

Footnote:  Climate Religion

It should be clear that when climate alarmists appeal to saving the planet for future generations, they are applying contextual ethics. Less obvious is the ancient religious notion that by making sacrifices, we humans can assure more favorable weather. These days, fossil fuels have become the sacrificial lamb required by Mother Nature to play nice with human beings. In the past, people made images and worshiped them, thinking that they could control nature in that way. These days, we make computer models whose projections are sure to scare the bejesus out of us.

    Thanks Ron! An excellent analysis. The sad part is, truly she is recognized more than true Atmospheric Scientists that spent their lives studying the atmosphere, climate, weather and Physics. I mentioned her briefly in my recent Blog. :
    Keep up your important work!
    Warm wishes,

    That Greta Thunberg will get an honorary doctorate degree In theology seems quite suitable. The climate cultists are basically turning their ideas into a religion, so from that perspective, the award is somewhere between ironic and sarcastic …
