Scoldilocks joins the reindeer games

Dana Mathewson

As my brother-in-law would say, "good pea-pickin' grief!" Here we have Greta Thunberg coming out AGAINST wind farms. Will wonders never cease?

Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg joined a protest group Monday at the Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy in Oslo in opposition to two wind farms over indigenous rights concerns, according to Reuters.

The wind turbines at the Roan Vind and Fosen Vind farms on central Norway land traditionally used by Sami reindeer herders continue to function despite a 2021 Norwegian supreme court ruling that they violated Sami rights under international conventions, the outlet reported. The protest group including Thunberg blocked ministry entrances, with Sami performer and activist Ella Marie Haetta Isaksen expressing demands "that the turbines must be torn down and that legal rights must be respected.”

"Indigenous rights, human rights, must go hand-in-hand with climate protection and climate action. That can’t happen at the expense of some people. Then it is not climate justice,” Thunberg told Reuters.

Sami herders say reindeer are frightened by the turbines’ sight and sounds, arguing they infringe on traditions. Thunberg has been an outspoken critic of fossil fuels, highlighting wind and solar power as renewable energy sources.

The court did not order whether the turbines or roads constructed to build them should be torn down, according to the outlet. Energy and Petroleum Minister Terje Aasland said the ministry understands the case "is a burden for the reindeer herders” and "will do what it can to contribute to resolving this case and that it will not take longer than necessary.”

The Swiss energy company Utility BKW, a part-owner of the Fosen Vind wind farm, told Reuters it expects the turbines will stay alongside compensatory measures to protect Sami herders’ rights.

"We trust that the ministry will find good solutions allowing us to continue the production of renewable energy while maintaining the rights of the reindeer owners,” Roan Vind stated, the outlet reported.

Meanwhile, Olive (the other reindeer) was unavailable for comment.

Hey, I'm just fine with protecting reindeer -- as long as I can have some reindeer venison on the table once in awhile. This article -- which I realize I quoted 100% -- is found here: https://www.wnd.com/2023/02/earth-now-greta-thunberg-protests-wind-farms/

2 So she doesn't like fossil fuels and she doesn't like "green" alternatives. How does she think electricity is made? Does she believe it just appears magically?

Of course she does.

This shows quite plainly that "green energy" is nothing but a ruse to get us to live with less energy, and subsequently to force us to reduce the population.

I object to them calling the Sami (aka Laplanders) "indigeonous peoples". That they sometimes traveled in Norway does not give them special rights to the land. The Norweigans are  as indigeonous to Norway as any people. We dont't call the Scots or the Welch "indigeonous peoples" because their ancestors were there before the English, so why do we do it in this instance? 

The first mention of the Sami was by Tacitus in 98 a.d. But thefirst Norweigans settled the region if not at the same time then only shortly thereafter. Neither Sami nor Germanic Norweigan were the first inhabitants of the region. It was settled long before either showed up.

I tire of the misuse of language - even by our own side.

3 I'm with you, Tim. Apparently, "indigenous people" are any others than those who need the energy that is being generated by the -- well, what would we call them, "exdigenous people? non-indigenous people?" And if you are a nomadic people, you can be "indigenous" in more than one country. But Scoldilocks wouldn't know any of that because she spent years playing hooky from school.

Gad, what an annoying little twerp!

4 That she is Dana.  And an example of what they want for all kids - all heart and no brain.

5 I think Greta believe electricity is generated from unicorn farts, but I'm not totally sure. Unicorn farts, or perhaps gorgon scat.

6 They are full of pixie dust too, and no doubt that is a harmful particulate in the atmosphere!

7 Oh, and she would object to the way unicorns are raised and harvested to generate the power. Cooping them up in pens and strapping big suction things onto their behinds!  How barbaric!
