In my opinion this entire sorry episode goes straight to the heart of the difference between the way alarmists like Williamson see the world, and the way normal people view the world. Alarmists seem to want their models, theories and opinions to be accepted as established fact. But the reality is their shaky theories are full of poorly supported conjecture and extrapolation.

Sick Kids: Greenpeace and child abuse - the video from 2007

While the horrible example of the effect of climate alarmism on a weak personality has been displayed in the sorry case of James Lee, here is a zombie-like child, hooded and almost monotonic, coached to push extreme alarmism, and apparently promoted by Greenpeace:



[Note added 7 Sep.  This is indeed a Greenpeace product.  Here it is on the site of this multinational corporation which treats children, and normal social and political procedures, with such contempt: http://www.greenpeace.org/international/en/multimedia/videos/Angry-Kid-/]

How many like him could be produced from our schools?  The fanatical youth movements of the 1920s and 30s in Germany and Russia come to mind.  Let us hope this kid, and others like him, gets help and better guidance before too long.

This current attention is due to a commenter on WUWT posting the video: http://wattsupwiththat.com/2010/09/02/stop-the-hysteria/

Has this video been used in any of our schools?  The video was published in February, 2007.  Where is that youngster now, and what does he think of it?

Note added 24 October 2013. Donna Laframboise has Fisked the script of this odious Greenpeace product, and she is not impressed by it, nor by the whole venture: http://nofrakkingconsensus.com/2013/10/24/greenpeaces-menacing-angry-kid/
She finishes her post with these words:
'Does Greenpeace now think it’s cool to fan inter-generational war? To threaten and bully older people? To make videos featuring noxious young men dressed, let us be honest, in clothing that is associated with violent gangs?
Greenpeace. Where, exactly, is the “peace” in this video?'

  1. Sheer alarmism. You're right to describe this as child abuse.
