New Zealand schools to terrify children about the “climate crisis”


Who cares about education if you believe the world is ending?

What will it take for sanity to return? Global cooling? Another Ice Age even? The climate lunatics would probably still blame human CO2 no matter what happens.

But before that, New Zealand seems happy to indoctrinate an entire generation with alarmist nonsense, and encourage them to wag school to protest for more “action” (reported gleefully by the Guardian, natch):

Every school in New Zealand will this year have access to materials about the climate crisis written by the country’s leading science agencies – including tools for students to plan their own activism, and to process their feelings of “eco-anxiety” over global heating.  […]

Young people feel betrayed and abandoned by older generations over their lack of action on the climate issue, and worry about it has increasingly sparked anxiety and depression, a group of British psychologists warned in September. […]

Materials created for teachers that were provided to the Guardian suggest students keep a “feelings thermometer” to track their emotions, learn how to change defeatist self-talk, and consider how their feelings could generate action and response.

Totally disgraceful, and the fact that the Guardian pushes this nonsensical propaganda as “news” is appalling.

You should read the whole thing just to understand how bonkers this is.

Environmentalists are cynical on bushfire causes


Tolerance and inclusivity on display from the Left

The Green Blob is guilty of shockingly cynical opportunism in relation to the bushfires.

Bushfires are caused (or intensified) by numerous factors including arson, fuel management, back burning, local climatic variables (such as the Indian Ocean dipole, El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) and the Madden-Julian Oscillation) AND possibly global climate change. Of all the above, global climate change is the least impactful by orders of magnitude.

But because our policies demand action on climate change we’re going to focus on that to the exclusion of all the rest in order to advance our own selfish agenda.

(Not forgetting that even global climate change is likely to have a natural component to it arising from the post- Little Ice Age recovery, which may be equal to or greater than any man made component…).

Sydney Morning Herald claims bushfire victims are “climate refugees”


Climate refugees? Really?

The desperation is palpable. As the public continues to reject the hysterical climate alarmism of the Green-Left, especially in connection with the current bushfires, the Silly Moaning Herald jumps the shark with this utter nonsense:

‘Australia’s first climate change refugees’

Standing on the waterfront at Mallacoota on Friday morning, waiting with his wife and 10-year-old son to board a tender that would take them out to HMAS Choules offshore, Nick Ritar had time to ponder the utter strangeness of what was unfolding in the normally idyllic beach town just south of the NSW border.

“We are Australia’s first climate refugees,” he told the Herald by phone from the wharf, where groups of holidaymakers were being bused down from the local cinema. (source, backup [PDF] for when it gets posted down the memory hole)

Keep going! All this will do is further alienate the silent majority from climate alarmism…

The Greens are so DUMB they think Australian climate policies control the Australian climate


Moronic

Dear Greens,

We know that you’re a bit intellectually challenged, but before you make another disgusting, opportunistic remark about the bushfires being linked to “lack of action on climate change”, there are two important lessons you need to learn:

  1. The climate is global not local. I know this is so basic it’s almost embarrassing to have to explain it, but you are obviously too stupid to have understood. Nothing we do in Australia will affect the Australian climate. Go and protest in China or India instead.
  2. Bushfires aren’t linked to climate change. Even the experts say this, but you are so desperate to push your cynical agenda you don’t care about that. They are more linked to a failure of bush management and controlled burns, things that have been consistently opposed by, er, the Greens.

You are a bunch of morons. Go away.

Yours sincerely,

Australian Climate Madness

Greta Thunberg is a hysterical child who should be ignored by sensible adults


Should be seen and not heard

Climate “saviour” Greta Thunberg speaking at the UN overnight made for some extremely painful watching.

It was painful not because of the apocalyptic message that she was trying to convey, but because of her childish, petulant and hysterical overreaction to the non-issue of modern-day climate change, something the planet has endured (and survived) for four and a half billion years.

It was painful because she is the product of a family, a society and a progressive media that is happy to elevate a kid with serious mental health issues to a level of exposure and publicity that will surely damage her even more.

I wonder how long it will take for any remaining sensible adults in the room to realise it is time to stop listening to a hysterical child when determining policies that will affect billions of people.

The climate strikes aren’t about climate, they are about anti-capitalism


Verging on child abuse…

Most of the deluded kids on the climate “strikes” last week didn’t have a clue why they were there.

Enthusiastically cheered on by the mainstream media, it was a cheeky bludge off school and all they were doing was trying to “save the planet” right?

No of course not. These gullible kids are being exploited by all kinds of extreme-Left and anti-capitalist groups in order to bring about a wholesale societal change, using our children as their innocent pawns.

The website for the strikes refers to the need for “climate justice” which we all know is code for wealth redistribution from rich countries to poor, and an excuse for the usurping of normal democratic processes.

And as we no longer educate children to think for themselves, you can bet this brainwashing will last decades – possibly their entire lives.

Shameful.

The Conversation becomes a lecture


The Conversation has always been heavily behind the alarmist side of the climate debate, and has featured in this blog many times in the past.

Now however it has taken the extraordinary step of banning any dissenting views on climate:

Climate change deniers, and those shamelessly peddling pseudoscience and misinformation, are perpetuating ideas that will ultimately destroy the planet. As a publisher, giving them a voice on our site contributes to a stalled public discourse.

That’s why the editorial team in Australia is implementing a zero-tolerance approach to moderating climate change deniers, and sceptics. Not only will we be removing their comments, we’ll be locking their accounts.

There is a huge range of dissenting opinion, from outright “denial” to educated and careful scientific critique, but we can be sure that The Conversation will interpret the ban as widely as possible so that nothing disrupts the desired consensus viewpoint. No doubt will be allowed.

The Catholic Church had the same idea when they sentenced Galileo to house arrest for “falsely” claiming the Earth orbited the Sun. Look how that worked out…

We really haven’t come that far since the 1600s.
