I Wonder How Australian Kids Feel About Climate Change?

In a word, terrified. But, not as you think; like with all liberal policy agendas, their are unanticipated consequences

PRIMARY school children are being terrified by lessons claiming climate change will bring “death, injury and destruction” to the world unless they take action.

On the eve of Prime Minister Julia Gillard’s carbon tax package announcement, psychologists and scientists said the lessons were alarmist, created unneeded anxiety among school children and endangered their mental health.

Climate change as a “Doomsday scenario” is being taught in classrooms across Australia.

And then the Warmists will push that the kiddies are scare by climate change, but conveniently forget to say why.

We have had this before in Australia. In the 1960s, Russian ‘set theory’ was taught in primary school arithmetic due to the Sputnik Scare. The fad passed. With the emergence of Sociology in the flower-powery 1960s, History and Geography combined into ‘Social Studies’. Handwriting in Australia has suffered a steady decline since the 1960s. Any attempt to assist a child with correct posture for handwriting would result in censure for the teacher. Personal desktop computers were introduced to primary schools under the rubric of ‘progress’ and claims used decades earlier for the advent of TV were recycled: ‘revolution in education and communication’ etc. Ergonomic and other health concerns about PCs for children were ignored. So the latest Australian fad, teaching the Greenhouse Scare as mainstream science to impressionable children is just par for the course, really. But it will pass. To quote Australian Federal Schools Minister Peter Garrett’s old rock band, Midnight Oil:
“Cold, cold change…waiting to begin, left us all angry and bewildered, laughing at the way we were taken in”
