Brainwash them while they are young – it’s so much easier then. Indoctrination Alert as the Herald Sun reports that children are being terrified by apocalypic climate change lessons in schools:
PRIMARY school children are being taught climate change will bring “death, injury and destruction” to the world unless they take action.
The concept of climate change is being taught to school students and used to underpin environmental studies in classrooms across Australia.
Resource material produced by the Federal Government for primary school teachers and students says climate change will cause “devastating disasters” in Australia.
“As well as their terrible impact on people, animals and ecosystems, they cause billions of dollars worth of damage to homes and other buildings,” the material says.
“Australia is one of the hottest and driest continents on Earth and is in danger of being severely affected by climate change if we do not act now.”
Psychologists and scientists yesterday slammed the lessons, accusing educators of being alarmist, creating unnecessary anxiety and endangering children’s mental health.
Sue Stocklmayer, director of the Centre for the Public Awareness of Science at Australian National University in Canberra, said climate change had been presented as a doomsday scenario.
Dr Stocklmayer said she was not a climate-change sceptic [everybody has to say that, or else they would be ostracised, branded a denier and silenced – Ed] but worried “too much time was spent presenting scary scenarios, especially to young people”.
“To put all of this before our children . . . is one of the most appalling things we can do to children.” (source)
None of this should surprise us. The government simply recycles the IPCC line without a second of critical thought.
And do you expect the government to care about the chidren’s welfare? In a word, no. All they are concerned about is indoctrinating another generation of children to believe their lies, spin and exaggerations on climate change, so they will stop thinking for themselves and turn into brainless zombies – at which point they will meet the requirements to vote Labor and join GetUp.

By the way, Marty the spot-tailed quoll is endangered partly because of climate change, apparently.
