So, pictures of starving polar bears knocked poor Greta over the edge. No-one near her was able, or perhaps even willing to help her. A simple dose of the truth might have done the trick: 'Hey Greta, the polar bears are actually doing OK.'
Here's a telling post from Paul Homewood:
It Is Time for Parents to Go on the Offensive
Propaganda is deep in the school systems in many places, almost always it would seem because of leftwing ideologues, and compliant teaching and administrative staff. Climate variation is arguably of no real interest to them, but it appeals greatly as a vehicle to produce fear and in due course threaten society. Here is a recent example of an extreme ideologue having been commissioned by a major published in the States to write a textbook on US history:
It is now time for parents to study the textbooks given to their children, and to be ready to make strong complaints when they find blatant propaganda instead of educational content. Why should anyone tolerate malevolent people targeting their children's minds with warped opinions from within the school system?
As Sarah Hoyt points out
'If you don’t read your kids’ textbooks, and don’t have other books and evidence ready to refute this sort of thing — and please note this stuff goes on in both public and private schools — you’re falling down on your job. You might have your reasons, but you should also be aware you’re failing your kids.'
I shall finish this post with another quote from the Thai blog from which the opening quote above was taken:
and still worth reading today, the 2014 report on climate brainwashing in UK schools: http://www.thegwpf.org/climate-control/
And to get a vivid notion of what we are up against, here is a heartfelt piece by an adult victim of the climate scaremongering: https://www.brightonandhoveindependent.co.uk/news/opinion/it-s-time-to-talk-to-kids-about-climate-change-1-8905068
How best to help her, and her children?

Meanwhile, she is a passenger on an extremely expensive, extremely uncomfortable, extremely high carbon yacht crossing the Atlantic in order to use up far more 'carbon' than if the poor lassie had just taken a commercial flight. This is because some of the crew are going to fly back to Europe. and more crew will be flying to New York to bring the boat back later. There is even talk of there being a diesel-powered boat following the yacht to take movies of it and be a back-up.
