Greta Thunberg recently arrived in New York, after traveling across the Atlantic to make a point about climate change. Over in America people might think Greta is a teenage superstar, but in Sweden she’s known as a publicity stunt. Nothing personal against Greta, I care very much about the climate myself. The theory of global warming isn’t entirely without merit, but there are better ways of caring for our earth and climate than sacrificing democracy.

Sky News host Andrew Bolt believes 16-year-old activist Greta Thunberg’s climate emergency “is nonsense”, and “that is exactly why green extremists are now hiding behind children”.
29 August 2019
St Greta of Thunberg – Patron Saint of the Age of Stupid – has made landfall in the New World, there to preach to the unbelievers her gospel of imminent climate doom.
“The war on nature must end,” she has declared, to anyone who is listening.
Though St Greta has become a figure of huge influence in Europe – feted by Popes, presidents and prime ministers, lauded with uncritical coverage in the mainstream media, put forward for a Nobel Peace Prize – it seems likely that in the United States she will get a more mixed reception.
While the left will most certainly try to shoehorn her into their Green New Deal campaign, the right may be less convinced.
That’s because, unlike a worrying number of their counterparts across the pond, U.S. conservatives understand St Greta’s environmental scare narrative for what it is: a hoax.
Especially, it’s an anti-American hoax. As Rupert Darwall describes in some detail in his book Green Tyranny (listen to the podcast interview here) the global warming scare was cooked up largely by European leftists (the Swedes and Germans being the worst offenders) with the purpose of destroying Western Industrial Civilization – U.S. Industrial Civilization in particular.
To understand how utterly specious St Greta’s gospel of apocalypse is, a good place to start is this excellent video by Tony Heller.
Heller has a nice line in dry sarcasm:
“Greta will go to the UN next week and read a speech which was carefully prepared for her by some of the world’s leading propagandists.”
And he has the measure of Greta’s propaganda litany:
“She will say that children of her generation face a terrible future of heat, famine, disease and every other imaginable natural disaster. Basically, she will describe a life which is the exact opposite of the charmed life that she is living. And her prophecies of doom will be described by the press as a magnet for hope. Her message of hope will be that if we simply lower carbon dioxide levels to those of the pre-industrial era everything will be fine…”
Did the world’s children really have it easier in the era before catastrophic man-made carbon emissions ruined everything?
Heller points out that just over a century ago, New York was in the grip of a polio epidemic. Are we really to believe that the children of tomorrow are going to be looking back enviously at their early 20th century forebears and wishing: “If only I could be crippled with polio, like kids were in the good old days!”
The polio epidemic spread all over the country. This 1916 photo was taken in Billings, Montana. (At least the children didn’t have to face an extra 0.0001 mole fraction CO2 in the atmosphere.)
Two years after the 1916 New York polio outbreak came the worst pandemic in history – the Spanish flu outbreak which killed as many as 40 million people, most of them young.
Greta – and those behind her – need to get a sense of historical perspective.
They also need a better grasp of climatology.
In the U.S. most of the hottest days in the last 100 years occurred during the early part of the 20th century.
US August 22 afternoon temperatures have been declining since 1895.
The likelihood of hot weather has also been declining, with recent years among the coolest on record.
Yet how often do you hear these climate facts from the alarmist mainstream media?
It has become a trope of the climate alarmist Establishment and its various useful idiots that to attack Greta Thunberg is somehow cruel or immoral or unfair; that the people who do so are motivated by misogyny or the bitterness of old age or all those payments they are getting from Big Oil…
The problem with Greta Thunberg is not that she’s a 16-year-old girl with pigtails.
The problem with Greta Thunberg is not that she’s a school drop out.
The problem with Greta Thunberg is not she’s autistic.
There are hundreds of thousands of other kids around the world with some or all of these features – and none is being criticised for having them.
No, the problem with Greta Thunberg is that no matter how brave or inspirational or articulate or touchingly young and fresh-faced or triumphant-over-mental-adversity she may be, the “facts” she regurgitates on behalf of her controllers are lies, propaganda and fake news – and the cause she represents is downright evil.
Strip away all the fluffy invocations of nature and the plight of future generations and the alleged crisis facing mother earth and what you find underneath is pure totalitarianism.
It’s no secret conspiracy. I wrote a book about it nearly ten years ago – Watermelons – and I can assure you there is nothing secret about the green movement’s totalitarian masterplan for anyone prepared to do a little background reading. Rather this is a conspiracy in plain sight.
And it’s a very dangerous conspiracy. If the green totalitarians get their way, standards of living will plummet, energy prices will become even less affordable than they are now, freedoms will become more constricted, more wildlife will be obliterated and more landscapes ruined by bat-chomping, bird-slicing eco-crucifixes, more money will be concentrated in the hand of a liberal-left oligarchy – none of it contributing the slightest material improvement to the state of the planet.
Greta Thunberg is currently the most prominent representative of that totalitarian movement.
Like it or not, cruel or no, that makes her the face of evil.

Jordan Peterson, world-famous psychologist and free speech advocate, has a reassuring message for women who’d like to have a family but who feel pressure from media, academia, and even friends to say “no” to their dream because, they’ve been told, a child has a “negative” impact on the environment.
“Bring a child into the world” anyway, Peterson said, and embark on a “maternal adventure” where you have “faith in life and in the possibilities of being [existence]” and the conviction that you’re “going to bring someone into the world who will be a net force for good rather than evil.”
Peterson made these comments during a conversation he had with Bishop Robert Barron that was published on the psychologist’s YouTube channel last week. (watch the full 1.5-hour conversation here).
Climate change alarmists have labeled children “carbon legacies” and have urged women to have small families and even no children at all, all in the name of “saving the planet.”
“A carbon footprint is the aggregate of resource use and carbon emissions over a person’s life. A carbon legacy occurs when a person chooses to procreate. All people have carbon footprints; only people with biological children have carbon legacies,” wrote Cristina Richie in a 2014 article in the Journal of Medical Ethics. Richie said that children being born are only “adding to worldwide carbon emissions.”
One academic proposed two years later to put a “carbon tax” on children to disincentivize procreation in wealthy nations.
In 2017, Dr. Travis Rieder of the Berman Institute of Bioethics wrote in an article for NBC that having many children is “wrong, or at least morally suspect,” comparing parents having a large family to releasing murderers from prison.
The New York Times featured a report last year highlighting women who chose not to have children “because of climate change.” Women are “acutely aware that having a child is one of the costliest actions they can take environmentally,” the report stated. The CBC recently ran a report telling Canadians that the best way to “mitigate” the “climate crisis” is to “have a smaller family.”
Peterson said that there will always be consequences to bringing a child into the world, but that women should look upon this as an “adventure” with the goal of raising children who will be a “force for good” in the world.
Here’s his full comment on the topic:
There’s a serious conversation to be had with young women. A woman asked me a question on my Q&A this month. She said that her friends are really down on her. She claims to not be a feminist, but even more importantly, because she wants to have children. And they’re telling her that only an evil and cruel person would bring a child into a world this terrible, and worse, [they tell her about] the damage to the planet that that child will inevitably do. And people are very serious about this. And they are very hard on young women.
I always think of the Pieta [sculpture by Michelangelo depicting the Virgin Mary cradling the body of her son Jesus, who was just taken down from the cross], because I kind of think of it as the Christian equivalent of the crucifix — you know, you have Mary there with her broken son in her arms. And I think that the great adventure for women — at least in part, this is the maternal adventure — is to bring a child into the world, knowing full well the consequence is a crucifixion-like brokenness. And that it’s still a mark of faith in the possibilities of being [existence], to participate in that and not to hide from it and to say: ‘Well, despite everything, I’m going to act out my faith in life and in the possibilities of being [existence] and I’m going to bring someone into the world who will be a net force for good rather than evil. And that’s my moral obligation.’
I think to present that to young women as a major part of the adventure of their life, which is certainly the truth, is something that is attractive to far more of them than would be likely to admit it in today’s time and age.
A civilization that views children merely as “carbon footprints” and not as beings with a spark of divinity in them that have something wonderful to contribute to humanity is a civilization that has lost it bearing. In the end, a civilization that has no children has no hope, no future.
Peterson’s remarks provide a path forward to those who want to have families but are weighed down by “climate change” talking points. Having a family is a serious adventure. Part of the adventure is a “crucifixion-like brokenness.” But, as people of faith know, when it looks like everything is lost, it’s at such moments that a resurrection can unexpectedly happen and the power of God, who works all things to good for those who love him, is revealed.
“One of the things I really learned from reading the Abrahamic stories is that the fundamental call is a call to adventure, not to ease or to happiness,” said Peterson a little later in his conversation with Barron. “The relationship with God that is part of that adventure is wrestling with God,” he added.

Apparently in defense of climate orthodoxy, the Northland Public Library of suburban Pittsburgh has banned from its shelves a best-selling book by a nationally recognized local author.
In a May 29 letter to local author Gregory Wrightstone, library executive director Amy Steele said a committee of three librarians had “concluded your book does not meet our standards.”
The book, “Inconvenient Facts: The Science That Al Gore Doesn’t Want You To Know,” disputes claims that global warming is largely a man-made phenomenon threatening the health of people and the environment. Asserting that current temperatures are neither unusual nor unprecedented, the book describes carbon dioxide as a “miracle molecule” whose increased levels have benefitted plants and made Earth greener.
The book has received rave reviews from readers, including respected scientists. Sales of the book have skyrocketed in recent months, reaching as high as #10 in overall Amazon sales as recently as March and #1 in sales in five categories.
A geologist of more than 35 years, Wrightstone supports his assertions with an extensive list of references to government agencies such as NASA and NOAA as well as peer-reviewed studies. He is often interviewed on radio and television, presents to professional organizations and academic and civic audiences and has testified before legislative
Wrightstone, who resides in the library’s North Hills service area, expressed frustration with Steele’s communication.
“In the letter she references the importance of ‘diversity of thought’ and ‘materials representing differing points of view,’” Wrightstone notes. “Yet, I went there and found 16 books related to climate change and all 16 toed the company line on man-made catastrophic warming. Not one book was available to offer a ‘non-consensus’ viewpoint. So much for diversity of thought.”
The book’s rejection is inconsistent with at least some of the library’s selection criteria.
Relevance to interests of the community: The Pittsburgh region is in the top 10 geographical areas for sales of “Inconvenient Facts.”
Local significance of the author: Wrightstone’s notoriety is well established, and he lives in Allison Park two miles from the library.
Significance of the subject: Is there a more hotly contested subject?
Relevance to the library’s existing collection: “Inconvenient Facts” would be the library’s only book with a contrarian view of the subject.
Wrightstone delivered three copies of the book to the library May 12 after hearing that readers found it unavailable there. Librarian Mary Lee Hart advised the author on May 14 in an email that the library had rejected the book because no independent reviews of it could be found.
On the same day, Wrightstone provided the librarian with links to several reviews and with information on book sales. The next day, he sought help from a member of the library board.
All, apparently, for naught.
A voice mail left for Steele was not returned.
This is not the first time Wrightstone has run afoul of those policing the apocalyptic narrative of climatic disaster. After initially accepting a smartphone app derived from his book, Apple removed it from the company’s App Store for reasons that were vague. Apple was met with numerous complaints, some of which noted Al Gore’s membership on its board of directors, and eventually returned the app to its offerings.
Wrightstone’s Facebook postings about the library’s actions quickly drew dozens of comments in support of him. One writer said, “Talk about Orwellian doublespeak. They ‘support diversity of thought’ so they are banning your book.”
A British fan of the book shared an email he sent the library: “I understand one of the central tenets of your Constitution is freedom of speech, so I am rather surprised at your refusal to accept Gregory’s donation of copies of his book.”
Noting that the library’s mission statement includes encouraging “lifelong learning and discovery,” Wrightstone’s says, “I’d say it’s more like indoctrination.”
