Why is there so much preoccupation with atmospheric CO2 concentrations and reducing anthropogenic CO2 emissions when it is well documented in the peer-reviewed scientific literature that the CO2 contribution to the overall greenhouse effect is so weak that it can be easily supplanted by small changes in clouds and water vapor, or natural climate-changing constituents?

Climate Change in Schools: not only the brainwashing is rotten, the buildings are as well

The scary but incredible premise of CO2-driven doom has been exploited by so many for political, religious, emotional, and financial ends that it is not hard to find people seized with fear doing foolish, and in some cases, unpardonable things. The unpardonable includes those adults deliberately setting out to frighten children about their future, feeding them them facile 'science' and even more reprehensibly, urging them to political 'action' even against their own families and friends.* The foolish includes being duped into sundry eco-ventures such as putting windturbines in school grounds, or solar panels on their roofs, or making school buildings that tick the eco-boxes while being unfit for human habitation.**  

Here is one in Devon which has wasted £7 million pounds and disrupted schooling for hundreds of pupils over the past 4 years (hat-tip Phillip Bratby ( on BishopHill Unthreaded , Sep 3, 2014 at 7:14 AM):
The £7m "flagship new eco-school" was intended to replace "dilapidated flood-prone" former buildings.
Classes were held in four clusters of pod-like timber-clad buildings, with electricity and hot water from solar panels.
But rainwater was reported to be running down the walls after apparent faults in the structure.
Ordering the school had been a "bold decision" by the county council, said district councillor Jacqi Hodgson.
"It's unfortunate that it had had so many problems and now it has come to this, it is really sad."
For more sources of 'sad' from Hodgson and her fellow Green Party campaigners, see their newsletter.  The usual sheep's clothing of sentimental socialism covering a vehicle for ruthless authoritarianism.  

Such blunders will surely open more eyes to the moral and intellectual emptiness of eco-alarmism and its spin-offs such as incompetent building projects.  Incompetent, but 'green'.  It is all part of a destructive subculture currently in such ascendancy that who knows how long it will take to recover from their physical blunders (such as bio-fuels, windfarms, and crappy buildings), let alone their educational ones producing generations of children made sick and anxious about the future.


* For example, Donna Laframboise has exposed global-scale conniving for that end: http://nofrakkingconsensus.com/2012/02/03/proselytizing-to-toddlers/ (and I enlarged upon it here:
 And the possibly widespread extent of it in UK Schools is highlighted in this report: 'Climate Control: Brainwashing in Schools'

  1. Here's how to cut your power bill up to 75%:

    Want to know how to easily produce all of the renewable energy you could ever want right at home?

    And you will be able to make your home totally immune from power outages, blackouts, and energy grid failures
    so even if everyone else in your area (or even the whole country) loses power…you won’t.
