Government's climate indoctrination exposed (again)

Corrupting young minds

The problem with adults is that they have mature and developed powers of reasoning and logical thought. This means that adults can easily see through the government’s deceit on the carbon tax, namely that it will be of some benefit to the climate – it won’t – or that the rest of the world is racing ahead to take action – it isn’t – or that the planet is headed for oblivion if we don’t send our economy back to the dark ages – it isn’t.

Therefore, because they have no standards of morality or decency whatsoever, they are prepared to bypass the grown-ups and go for the impressionable minds of children. This is nothing new, as ACM has reported on many such occasions (see here, for example, and the CSIRO’s Carbon Kids program, a disgraceful propaganda exercise by our national science body, on which there may be more at a later date).

So the following is simply the latest evidence of government attempts to brainwash and indoctrinate the next generation with climate alarmism before they have the capacity to question what they are being told:

SHE grows awesome tomatoes and has an orange tractor. And now dirtgirl, the lead character in the popular children’s television program dirtgirlworld, has been enlisted to the climate change fight by a Gillard government struggling to convince her viewers’ parents of the merits of the carbon tax package.

Senate estimates was told yesterday the ABC show had been awarded a $150,000 grant “to reach currently disengaged families through childhood activities focused on reducing energy use”.

The hearing was told the government had $10 million left for an advertising campaign to back the carbon tax. But no decision had been taken on the future of the campaign.

Other recipients of Climate Change Foundation grants included Green Cross Australia, which was awarded $200,000 for a primary school show-and-tell competition.

The $3m grants program was announced last June in conjunction with the government’s paid advertising campaign to promote the carbon package.

The $10m remaining in the government’s advertising allocation follows its controversial advertisement last year backing the clean energy future package, which was found to have largely failed to sway public opinion on carbon pricing.

The Climate Change Department told yesterday’s Senate estimates hearing the advertisements had sparked 7500 responses to a call centre on the Clean Energy Future package. (source)

    The ABC’s form on brainwashing kids and others with man-made warming propaganda goes way back:

  2. The new Hitler Jugend. in Nazi Germany, parents did not talked about politics in the presence of the children . It could kill the parents.

    • “When an opponent declares, ‘I will not come over to your side, ‘I calmly say, ‘Your child belongs to us already…What are you? You will pass on. Your decendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing but this new community.” – Adolf Hitler

  3. Brainwashing of young people does not work. I spent 23 years of my life in a communist country under expert brainwashing, and most of us, young people, rejected communism and cosidered it pure and undiluted garbage. If you are old enough, you may remember seeing young people demonstrating against communist regimes in every single communist country, including Soviet Union. You can fool the adults most of the time, but not the children – they have built in very sensitive BS meter.

    [REPLY: I hope you’re right! – Ed]

  4. Many of our top bureaucrats know the techniques of propaganda goned by the Nazis and the Soviets. They are using them daily.

  5. John of Cloverdale Perth WA says:

    From Orwell’s 1984:
    “The children, on the other hand, were systematically turned against their parents and taught to spy on them and report their deviations. The family had become in effect an extension of the Thought Police.”

  6. You can see a full list of Climate Change grant recipients here. Other grants approved include:
    – $93,000 to Labor/Green buddies Australian Council of Trade Unions
    – $271,000 to Labor/Green buddies Australian Youth Climate Coalition
    – $250,000 to Labor/Green buddies The Climate Institute
    – $398,000 to Labor/Green buddies Australian Conservation Foundation
    – $72,000 to potential Labor voters The Auburn Community Development Network to preach climate change to the Muslim community
    plus many more …

    How is this *not* child abuse?

  8. Aiming at primary kids .. in the hope they will have someone, anyone, to vote for them in 10-15 years time.

  9. This is disgusting. I hope it does not eventually go to air.

  10. If this fails they can always have a crack at the afterlife. With the collective genius they have surely they will be able to find a way to the other side.

  11. I do hope you do pursue the CSIRO materials. I have my reaction to a Greenie Watch relayed report about a senator challenging them here:
    In any event, many thanks for your post above. I have added a link to it in my collection of links on climate curricula in Australia. Australia seems to be, like the UK and Germany, on the receiving end of more than your fair share of the climate madness.
