A blog sharing information about materials presented to children on climate, highlighting those intended to frighten or mislead, and those which seek to inform and inspire rather than to recruit, even the very young, for an ill-founded political campaign around the threat of CAGW. A campaign which is irresponsible, destructive, divisive, and degrading.
These are not great souls who alert us to troubles but tiny minds who wish us suffering if we have the presumption to refuse to listen to them. Catastrophe is not their fear but their joy.Pascal Bruckner (http://www.city-journal.org/2012/22_2_apocalyptic-daze.html)

Whatever next: high school students get to hear two sides of a global warming debate!
VALPARAISO | Hebron High School junior Kasie Sass said Thursday's World Affairs Conference held at Ivy Tech Community College was the first time she had heard both sides of the heated global warming issue.
"It was pretty interesting and I definitely heard a different perspective. I am so used to hearing all the propaganda from the other side," Sass said.
Chesterton High School junior Alyssa Bowker agreed.
"I learned a lot of facts that I'd never been told," she said.
Who can doubt that youngsters all around the world would say pretty much the same thing? If only they could get a similar chance of seeing more than the scary propaganda they have been exposed to for their entire lives. So many of them get a mess of potage at school, not least 'An Inconvenient Truth', rather than a decent education about climate variation and what we know about its various possible causes.
More details of the debate in the report from the North West Indiana Times from whose Valparaiso section the above extract was taken (April 17, 2014 12:12 pm). I added the emboldening.
