'By encouraging, or even requiring, students to take stands where they have neither the knowledge nor the intellectual training to seriously examine complex issues, teachers promote the expression of unsubstantiated opinions, the venting of uninformed emotions, and the habit of acting on those opinions and emotions, while ignoring or dismissing opposing views, without having either the intellectual equipment or the personal experience to weigh one view against another in any serious way.'

The Avalanche of Climate Scare Propaganda: what sustains it? Some answers here.

'Three major stories about the Green movement and its ties to major Left-wing foundations and Left-wing journalists have been in the news. '

MediaTrackers uncovered Gamechanger Salon, a secretive group of over 1,000 Leftwing leaders and activists from organizations like AFL-CIO, Change.org, NARAL, Planned Parenthood, Huffington Post, CNN, MSNBC, ThinkProgress, Media Matters, and such climate-alarm groups as Greenpeace, Sierra Club, Wilderness Society, US Climate Action Network, shaping news reporting and government policy. 

The U.S. Senate Environment & Public Works Committee revealed a “Billionaires’ Club” of carefully orchestrated and hidden Leftwing support for environmental organizations totaling over $1.3 billion per year that exploits ties with the Environmental Protection Agency and other parts of the Obama Administration to pass policies Congress, the real representatives of the people, won’t adopt. 

Capital Research Center exposed a concerted effort in the mainstream media here and around the world, including ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, and the BBC as well as leading newspapers and magazines, to exclude the views of “climate-change skeptic” scientists from coverage, thus hiding from the public the real and growing debates over climate change among qualified climate scientists. 

The above text, plus more details on each of the three topics has been published here in this article

The scale of the these propaganda efforts is breathtaking, as is the extent of the academic, governmental, NGO and business empires which they help sustain.  Despite it all, they are struggling to fool all of the people all of the time.  They are managing some of the people, some of the time, not least children in schools.  

Meanwhile, the climate system continues to defy the would-be alarmers since nothing has happened in it to contradict the notion that our CO2 is having only a weak effect - too weak to confirm reliably using temperatures, ice extents, precipitation patterns, cloud extents, storms, etc etc etc.  See the scholarly works in 'Climate Change Reconsidered II' for support for this view.
