Forget Greta!

Written by  The Hound

OPINION: There was a lot of gnashing of teeth, wailing and tears (including our PM) when celebrity teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg has a crack at NZ's efforts to reduce carbon emissions.

This was all brought to a head when Thunberg 'tweeted' her displeasure at NZ's climate change performance, citing a Guardian article.

This old mutt reckons people shouldn't get upset with little Greta as he believes she's an over-exposed child who is being used by climate change calamatists to promote their 'the world is ending' agenda.

The real villain is the Christchurch-based 'journalist' behind the Guardian story (a publication that is so left wing and woke that it makes Stuff look middle-of-the-road) who gave one sentence in her article to Feds Andrew Hoggard and then devoted the rest of her 'story' to unsubstantiated claims made bhy Greenpeace spokesman Steve Able.

Wood for the trees?

OPINION: The Hound wonders when the powers-that-be will take a serious look at how their infatuation with pleasing the UN and implementing crazy policies to mitigate (not reduce) the country's carbon footprint is doing severe damage to our economy.

Value for money?

OPINION: Your old mate is always sceptical about claims made by government, especially when it comes to spending our money and the value of said spending.
