Fossil Fuel Industry Shifts from Climate Denial to “Youthwashing

For decades, the fossil fuel industry-funded climate change denial campaigns aimed toward young people to sow seeds of doubt on climate science. As the climate crisis has worsened, it has made a subtle shift to what critics call “youthwashing“.

Like Big Oil and other corporations also do greenwashing, artwashing, gaywashing/pinkwashing

This 30 December 2019 video says about itself:

Greta Thunberg and David Attenborough thanked each other for their climate activism when they spoke for the first time in a Skype call. The discussion was part of the Swedish activist’s guest-editing slot on the Today programme. Attenborough praised the teenager for raising awareness of the climate crisis, to which Greta said nature documentaries inspired her to take on the cause

Over the weekend, a group of Independent Fundamentalist Baptist preachers held yet another cult meeting where they preached all different kinds of hate. Pastor Steven Anderson of Arizona’s Faithful Word Baptist Church, for example, delivered a rant against environmentalism, saying that God created the world for us, so there’s no reason to accept climate change as real, much less an existential threat. … Along the way, he denounced activist Greta Thunberg as a “sniveling Swedish brat”: here. The ‘Reverend’ Anderson said Ms Thunberg would ‘roast in hell’.
