Carbon dioxide tax proponents love the scare campaign label. It enables them to relegate their opponents to ruthless fear mongers. What about the real scare campaign however? It is not taking place in political advertisements or parliament house. The most innocent among us are being submitted to blatant global warming propaganda and ridiculous doomsday scenarios.
While the government’s agenda is not as crazy as this hysterical rant from Lisa Simpson, it is certainly enough to give many children nightmares. More and worse natural disasters, poor water security, failed crops, rising sea levels, plants and animals dying.
Not only are they taught outlandish consequences of global warming, but are subjected to a highly politicised area. No wonder most young people are believers in the impending apocalypse, leading to the hysterical level of activism.
Are these children taught that there is another side to the debate, that thousands of scientists reject the catastrophic anthropogenic global warming theory? That doomsday predictions are frequently disproven by the resilience of nature? Science class is for science, not politics and propaganda. History will note this part of the global warming scare as one of the most reprehensible aspects.
