Environmentalists Scare Kids with Climate Change Alarmism

Bloomberg.com recently reported:

President Barack Obama said the curbs on carbon emissions to combat climate change …will also help address a growing threat to the nation’s health. “We don’t have to choose between the health of our economy and the health of our children,” he said in his weekly address…. “As president, and as a parent, I refuse to condemn our children to a planet that’s beyond fixing.”(end of bloomberg.com excerpt)

OK, so Obama is using the usual eco-fearmongering, that our “children” will be adversely affected if we don’t address “climate change”. But the real deep and lasting damage to our children, and to their whole lives, comes from the environmentalists themselves with their endless scare tactics that all have been proven fake in the first place, as “climate change” is fake. Look at this from climatelessons.blogspot.com:

… in the United Kingdom, … a survey showed that half of young children aged between seven and 11 are anxious about the effects of global warming, often losing sleep because of their concern. This is grotesquely harmful. And let us be honest. This scare was intended. Children believe that global warming will destroy the planet before they grow up because adults are telling them that. (end of climatelessons.blogspot.com excerpt)

Friends, the greatest threat to children’s health is to undermine them psychologically and instill fear, and the environmentalists shamefully do this intentionally every minute of every day. I, Nikitas, remember feeling frightened when I was in high school in the early 1970s when the eco-alarmists were first claiming that “the world is running out of oil”. I remember thinking that the whole world would collapse during my lifetime and feeling depressed about it. By my early college years, however, I had rejected this doomsday approach and today I have been proven correct. The world in fact has plenty of oil and the known supply is increasing every year.

Now the eco-fearmongering is 100 times worse. Every single day eco-doomsday is directly taught to children. This is so exploitative and evil as to be beyond words because this fundamentally undermines children. Some then become eco-zealots when they grow up, precisely as planned.

These environmentalists are doing this first to make themselves rich through contributions to their organizations; second, to get jobs and power, often through government action and mandates; third, to recruit a new generation to their cause; and fourth to control the population through fear and anxiety, because it is a human weakness to be trapped and controlled by negativity. Bloomberg.com reported:

Obama recorded the address after meeting with children who are being treated at the hospital for asthma, which is aggravated by air pollution. …Scientists and physicians increasingly link a rise in allergies, asthma and other respiratory diseases to the elevated levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere caused by climate change. (end of bloomberg.com excerpt)

Oh, so now asthma is caused by carbon dioxide? Are you kidding? Carbon dioxide is a natural compound in the air, always has been and always will be. In fact the medical establishment told us for decades that asthma attacks were either natural or were a result of air pollution, not carbon dioxide. And we know that asthma is a condition that has been around for millennia, long before “climate change”. So the environmentalists are lying again in order to promote their alarmist agenda.

Allergies? I thought that allergies were triggered by natural things like pollen as we have been told over and over. Now the fanatics are blaming allergies on carbon dioxide too. These people never, ever stop with their extremist crusade. Now here is another Obama quote from bloomberg.com:

The costs of climate change, Obama said, “can be measured in lost lives and livelihoods, lost homes and businesses; and higher prices for food, insurance, and rebuilding.” (end of bloomberg.com excerpt) Now let’s look at these issues one by one:

Lost lives? How about abortion, which takes more than 1 million lives per year and which is supported by Obama and his cronies including most environmentalists. How about AIDS, which has killed more than 300,000 homosexual males in the last 35 years but which the Liberal Medical Establishment and the Democrats ignore in order to focus on ‘global warming’ which has killed precisely nobody.

Lost livelihoods? Just go into rural America to see where millions of jobs are being destroyed by ruthless and relentless environmentalist obstruction. Then look at how Obama’s friends in the labor unions over the last 60 years killed millions of great American jobs and sent millions more overseas with their outrageous wage demands and strikes and violence. And then Obama blames “climate change” for lost livelihoods. Unbelievable.

Lost homes and businesses? You should come to ultra-liberal Massachusetts to see empty houses and shuttered businesses everywhere not from ‘global warming’ but from Democrat economic policies.

Higher prices for food? What a joke. We know that two things are driving up food prices today. First there is ethanol production, or ‘green’ alcohol fuel made from distilling corn. This is diverting massive amounts of the annual corn crop to alcohol production. This robs the food supply of valuable corn, including corn for animal feed, pushing up prices for meat, eggs and milk. Food prices also are being driven up by enviro obstruction that is restricting oil production and pushing up costs for everything from tractor fuel in the farmer’s field to diesel fuel for trucks and trains to deliver food to our stores.

Higher prices for insurance and rebuilding? This is more fakery. The ‘greenies’ now are saying that every hurricane, flood and tornado is a result of “global warming”. Yet hurricanes, floods and tornados have been occurring since the beginning of time. In fact we are now in a long lull in the hurricane-prone Gulf of Mexico.

And then they attribute “higher insurance costs” to insurance companies charging more. But they are they charging more because they are acting on the environmentalist propaganda which says that sea levels are rising and are going to swallow coastal buildings. This is another doomsday fabrication. Sea levels are not rising.

Meanwhile here is one of millions of doomsday environmentalist messages that are sneaked into the public arena. There is a billboard near my home that says “Save the Environment, Start by Keeping Kids in Science Class”

This is yet another public message that implies that we need to “save” the environment, which implies that “the environment” is in peril. Yet the source of the ad is Big Brothers, Big Sisters, the charity that matches up kids with older mentors. BBBS is a non-profit that uses tax-deductible contributions, and then also gets 15% of its funding from federal sources, i.e., a double taxpayer subsidy.

This billboard gives environmentalists yet another way to promote their radical agenda by inducing taxpayer-funded BBBS to use its established political clout and our money to spread the eco-doomsday message, but cloaked as “compassion” for the kids. See how relentless and exploitative these environmentalists are? They are master manipulators who use every channel possible to spread their lies and fear.
