A friend’s young daughter came home from school the other day in tears, having been told by a visiting academic that her North Sydney suburb would one day be flooded due to global warming. Alarmed, her father called the school, which confirmed – with regret – the comments made. This child abuse is happening all over the place:
• A Toronto girl was reportedly unable to sleep after seeing An Inconvenient Truth;
• Nine-year-old Sydney boy Ryan Gwin suffers anxiety over the fuel consumed by his father’s bus;
• And another nine-year-old, Virginia’s Alex Hendel, fears the end of life on the earth.
Well done, global warm-mongers. You’ve got kids terrified out of their minds:
While recent polls show that American adults are most concerned about the war in Iraq, terrorism, and healthcare, a survey of more than 1,000 middle school students across the country found that kids fear global warming more than any of these issues …
Nearly 60 percent of children said they feared global warming and environmental disasters – such as hurricanes, tornados and flooding – more than terrorism, car crashes, and even cancer.
Note that adults aren’t scared of global warming; the “scientific consensus” on global warming seems mostly to worry that sector of the population generally frightened of boogeymen and the dark.
Nearly one-third of children reported thinking about global warming a lot and worrying about how the effects of global warming will change the planet and directly impact their lives. Another 41.2 percent think about it sometimes and say that they are somewhat worried …
When asked what effect of global warming worries them the most, the majority of kids surveyed are most afraid of the toll it will take on the lives of people.
They think people will die. Nice. The survey’s sponsors seem satisfied with these results:
“We were not surprised in our survey to discover that children are really worried about global warming. We have received thousands of emails from children expressing their fears and asking what they could do to help save the planet,” said BrainPOP CEO and founder Avraham Kadar, M.D.
“Given the media attention from things like Hurricane Katrina and the tsunamis in Asia, it’s no wonder that children are curious and concerned about the impact of global warming.”
Keep telling them that sea-floor earthquakes and historically-constant hurricanes are the result of man’s evil ways; see what levels of misery you can induce. Meanwhile, those who earn $50,000 for alarmist speeches are comfortable and relaxed:
Environmentalist Tim Flannery munches on a club sandwich in a suburban Sydney shopping mall and casually begins predicting Armageddon.
I’ve got two young nieces in the Victorian school system, Flannery. Stay the hell away from them.
