Chill out, children: the world has not warmed in your lifetime

Very quietly on the weekend, the UK Met office released the official world surface temperature data for the last 15 years. As I suggested to my Year 10 son last night, “Tell your teachers – you know, the ones who have hammered into you since kindergarten that we are cooking the world with our CO2 emissions – that there has not been any, repeat ANY, global warming since before you were born”.

CO2 superstition and This Mad Tax – great clip from Bolt with Lindzen

Reason will have to prevail, surely, in this contemptible con job over “dangerous man-made global warming” and “carbon pollution”.

Here, in just 9 minutes, Andrew Bolt puts a nice thick nail in the coffin of this pernicious public delusion. Quotes from the likes of Flannery, Garnaut and other alarmists confirming that there is no expectation this “carbon tax” will alter the world’s temperature a jot – all pain and no gain; a demonstration of the definite benefits for plant life of increasing CO2 in this essentially CO2-starved phase of earth’s history; and finally an interview with the great climate scientist and IPCC lead author (of the uncorrupted variety), Prof Richard Lindzen. Enjoy his wry chuckle as he diagnoses this madness: “There is no disagreement in the scientific community that this (tax) will have no impact on climate, so it’s purely a matter of government revenue. And as I say, if they can fool the people into thinking that they really want to pay taxes to save the earth, it’s a dream for politicians”.

Climate change child abuse: messing with the minds of our kids

Once, principals and teachers would have had the professional pride to toss out this sort of government propaganda. Perhaps their anxiety not to appear skeptical of the “consensus” intimidates their judgement. But surely any teacher should stand firm when the emotional wellbeing of their students is under threat from a government scare-campaign?

And what sort of a government is it that scares today’s children in order to create tomorrow’s Greens-Left body of opinion among voters?

Let every teacher consider this report in today’s The Daily Telegraph:
