Globalwarmists Are Propagandists

H/T to Dad29 for finding a UW Madison Climatologist willing to call shenanigans on the hysteria about dangerous manmade global warming. Dr. Reid Bryson brings impeccable expertise to the subject and when he says: “You can go outside and spit and have the same effect as doubling carbon dioxide” it pretty well sums up the validity of globalwarmist alarmism.

Because the globalwarmists are a political movement, however, the actualities of science will not deter them from their quest to impose their version of green socialism on a gullible public. The latest example of a blatant propaganda move comes from England. On the quiet, schools are supplied with a teaching kit containing a DVD of “An Inconvenient Truth” and other one sided materials specifically aimed at children.

Gore Propaganda in British Schools Faces Legal Challenge: On Wednesday last week, yes the day before the British local elections when nobody was looking, the combined weight of the Education and Environment Ministries started to send out their Secondary Schools Climate Change Pack.

UKIP Peer Lord Pearson asked the government to halt the process, and having had the request rejected suggested that this pack also include the Channel 4 film “The Great Global Warming Swindle”. This suggestion too was rejected, despite the fact that it would have made the government's proposal legal under the 1996 Education Act.

Children continue to be taught the world needs to be saved. This is wrong. There are local environmental problems that need to be addressed but the biosphere is just fine and thriving. It is time rational adults start stating this fact loud and clear.
