Global Warming as the new boogeyman

Global warming concerns are keeping children awake at night

Half of young children are anxious about the effects of global warming, often losing sleep because of their concern, according to a new report today.

A survey of 1,150 youngsters aged between seven and 11 found that one in four blamed politicians for the problems of climate change.

Hmmm, who puts these ideas into such little children's heads? Maybe it's the media and the schools with their environmentalist activism and the showing of Al Bore's "documentary" as if it is indisputable scientific fact?

One in seven of those questioned by supermarket giant Somerfield said their own parents were not doing enough to improve the environment.

The most feared consequences of global warming included poor health, the possible submergence of entire countries and the welfare of animals.

It is irresponsible for the media and school system to use fearmongering to try to scare kids into badgering their parents to "save the planet." These kids are too young understand the global warming theory - of course they're going to be scared! Plus, they're still at that stage where they believe everything authority figures tell them without being too critical.

..."While many adults may look the other way, this study should show that global warming is not only hurting the children of the future, it's affecting the welfare of kids now." Uh, who's fault is the latter?

By raising awareness amongst today's young, hopefully we are improving our chances of reaching a solution.''

See? The environmentalist wackos are admitting that their strategy is to indoctrinate children to advance their causes - and they don't care that the kids are being hurt along the way!
