Obama Really Wants Snowflakes To Learn About Hotcoldwetdry

I love the photo that starts off this US News And World Report article

Perhaps unable to convince older Americans of the severity of global warming, President Barack Obama is hoping to have better luck with the next generation by turning to the classroom.

The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy on Wednesday announced it will launch a new initiative aimed at climate education and literacy that will distribute science-based information – in line with the administration’s position on the issue – to students, teachers and the broader public.

Educators, government officials, philanthropic leaders and those from the private sector will participate in a roundtable discussion at the White House Wednesday. The participants will focus on how to spread more resources to teachers and increase professional development and training related to climate change for educators, federal employees and informal educators, such as those working in national parks, museums, aquariums or botanic gardens.

In other words, indoctrination. This matches well with an article from the hyper-Leftist UK Guardian

Tougher government attitudes on climate change key to business action

….

But do government attitudes to climate change influence corporate attitudes and practice on climate change?

We have recently completed a review of the climate change practices and processes of major retailers in the US and the UK. While certain of the sector’s activities and operations are regulated (ie vehicle efficiency standards) and others are influenced by wider climate change policy (ie through electricity prices), the sector’s overall emissions are not directly regulated, in either the US or the UK.

The basics of the article is that when government forces themselves on the public when it comes to “climate change”, business must adapt. Energy prices in the UK have skyrocketed, forcing businesses to adapt by reducing their energy usage. Of course, what is not mentioned is businesses cutting down on their employees and having to raise the prices on their goods and services.

Kevin noted yesterday that “It makes me sad that the bulk of our species is so gullible.” This is what Progressives/Leftists do: take an issue and push it and push it and push it. When they control the majority of the media, the education system, and government bureaucracy, they can make virtually anything happen, regardless of the reality. That’s how we end up with so many fools that have bought into the Hotcoldwetdry narrative. The story. The fable. Indoctrination? Check. Big Government control? Check.

I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again. Progressives take the long view. They make Orientals, who are renowned for their ability to take a long view, to shame. Over the last 100 years Progressives here in the US have made it so they control the majority of the media, education system, government bureaucracies, entertainment sector, and unions. You have many others within the tech and sports industries who proclaim to be Progressives and toe the line. Of course, most of these folks fail to practice what they preach, whether it is about climate change, giving, charity, and/or taxation. But, they mouth platitudes very well. And they do a good job in forcing their beliefs on others. Progressivism is a form of Fascism, and we can see it in the indoctrination and Big Government tyranny of the articles.

    Yep, you can’t accuse big media US News & World Report of supporting Obama!

    The far-right labels anyone to their left as radicals, including moderate Republicans. What you call Progressive propaganda, most folks call life.

    Conservatives have two main policy goals: 1) Support the wealthy and 2) harass all who are not Christian, Caucasian, Conservative Heterosexuals.

    The Earth continues to warm from our adding CO2 to the atmosphere. It will make human civilization more and more difficult. Thanks, Conservatives!

    Jeffery has two main policy goals: 1)Make himself look like a fool. 2)Make himself look even more like a fool. Mission accomplished.

  4. Teach you always seem to focus on personalities/messengers

    I wonder who said that? Oh, it was John!

    j,

    That you think me a fool is high praise indeed.

    Have you come up with a mechanism by which the Earth has rapidly warmed 1.4F in the past century or so or are you just too busy calling others names?

    I also found the lead photo quite interesting. So I asked US News the following:
    1. Where was the photo taken? Specifically, what town and school?
    2. Shouldn’t the story following that photo be “Why does a classroom of young children in the USA have up a poster of a mass murder, who killed for a totalitarian government because he enjoyed the act of killing people?”
    3. Why would you post such a picture in an unrelated story?
    The response was as sad as the use of the photo:
    Thank you for taking the time to contact us. The photo in question is a handout image from a high school in Tuscon, Arizona. It was not taken by U.S. News & World Report. The image was chosen because it depicts a teacher and students in a classroom, not because of any item used to decorate the room.
    Sincerely,
    Lylah M. Alphonse | Managing Editor, News | U.S. News & World Report

    I found it quite telling that US News & World Report considers a poster of a mass murderer as only a decoration and that they would even suggest they only picked it as a photo of a teacher and students.
