Quote:It is refreshing to come across scientists researching a question without the corrupting need to scare the public or to confirm some personal, professional or moral fear of the future. In this case I refer to a wonderful Smithsonian article on the question: Why Did Greenland’s Vikings Vanish? Newly discovered evidence is upending our understanding of how early settlers made a life on the island — and why they suddenly disappeared.

It is our attitude toward free thought and free expression that will determine our fate. There must be no limit on the range of temperate discussion, no limits on thought. No subject must be taboo. No censor must preside at our assemblies.

–William O. Douglas, U.S. Supreme Court Justice, 1952
Currently reading an excellent book titled THE EDGE OF THE WORLD How the North Sea made us who we are: by Michael Pye.

This is a history book of those early days. Much detail on the effect the Vikings had on the development of coastal communities around UK, Ireland and all the coastal areas around the North Sea.

Am only about a quarter of the way through the book but was much intrigued to read about 'Christian slavery' conducted by the Vikings.
Environmentalism is based on lies and the lies reflect an agenda that regards humanity as the enemy of the Earth. - Alan Caruba
