Dear Editor,

So Sweden’s 16-year-old man-made global warming guru Greta Thunberg headed off across the Atlantic (in a high-carbon-emissions, construction-type, 21st-century hi-tech boat, fitted out with radar, depth-finding and satellite-monitoring emergency beacon and GPS) to retrace some of her Viking forefathers’ great ocean voyages of discovery in ever-so-primitive, navigated-by-the-stars and guided-by-bird-flight activity, 1,000-years-ago-built, open wooden boats powered by sail and oar-stroke?

Well, Greta, it is: Bravo for Erik the Red (especially for Erik’s love of beer), and as a bloke who thinks in pictures, can’t do mental arithmetic and gets compass points mixed up at times, I say Andrew Bolt really bolted it in re “We Must Doubt Disturbed Teen’s Climate Dogma” Herald-Sun, 1 August 2019.

Those having a whack at Bolt appear to be suffering from “MmGW Mania” just as severely, if not more, than the unfortunately inflicted/misguided young Swede Greta Thunberg (and so many of her fawning snouts-in-the-public-trough followers)!

Greta, there are literally many tens of thousands of scientists worldwide disputing not only the severity, but also the existence, of MmGW and all this “end-of-the-world”-type nonsense you spout!

Greta, for you a Nordic-neighbour fact: Danish scientists, from Denmark’s National Museum of Copenhagen (as published in ScienceNordic, 3 February 2012) have confirmed that Viking King Erik the Red, some 1,000 years ago, grew barley (to of course brew beer!) in Greenland when that part of the world was even warmer and there was even less ice and snow there than there is today. But now, the UN’s IPCC is telling the world that farming is contributing to modern-day Greenland’s melting ice losses!

Please listen to the Danes, because Bolt bolted in on you, Greta!

And Greta, Scandinavian and US university researchers are, independently of each other, reporting via scientific research that polar-bear populations have exploded by up to 30% over the past 20 years or so!

Further to that, Greta: Prof. Peter Wadhams, Head of Polar Ocean Physics Group, Cambridge University, has scientifically documented that the Arctic Circle 100,000 years or so ago was ice-free. And Greta, considering that recent scientific studies prove that the polar bear has been snow-white, after evolving from brown bears, for at least 500,000 years, just why is the polar bear not now extinct instead of increasing in population?

Finally, Greta, in the 1970s, many scientists worldwide were all gloom-and-doom over an impending new ice age and worldwide shortages of food!

Greta, it just was not so!
