'Every year climate science seems to get less sure until I want to shout 'Just vanish back into obscurity until you've got a handle on this mess! Go on, go to your room and don't come out till your predictions last longer than it takes the ink to dry on them." '

Teach them that the climate system is quite robust on any timescale of concern to us, and that CO2 has never been a big player in the past, and does not seem to be a big player now. Teach them that rising CO2 has helped green the planet, and increase food production, and at the same time the climate system is behaving just as it might if the additional CO2 had only a very minor effect. Teach them that the gentle warming we have seen is good for life in general, and humans in particular. Teach them that so much has been getting better in the environment and in human welfare that this is probably the best time ever to be young since the potential is there for continued improvement. Teach them that affordable energy is a liberator, and that abundant relatively affordable energy is available through fossil fuels and nuclear.
Teach them that things have been getting dramatically better over the past 50 years and that this can easily continue. Teach them to not take eco-scare stories at face value every again. Teach them how wrong these stories have all been.

'On behalf of environmentalists everywhere, I would like to formally apologize for the climate scare we created over the last 30 years. Climate change is happening. It’s just not the end of the world. It’s not even our most serious environmental problem.

In Australia, though, someone posted a fake curriculum item calling for pupils to emulate her. This was in New South Wales, where they have some previous in agitprop for children:
'The NSW school system was heavily criticised last year during the so-called Climate Strike for allowing climate activists to indoctrinate impressionable young children.
Note added later on 17 June James Delingpole has spotted an interesting thing about the NSW Education Department's response:
'However, the NSW Education Department clearly wasn’t that concerned about feeding primary school children naked green propaganda, for the lesson plans were up on its website for nine months. It only took them down after concerns were raised by the newspaper.'
That newspaper is the Australian 'Daily Telegraph'

Paul Homewood has just reviewed a GCSE Study Guide used in Wales at least for the period 2010 to 2015. He is not impressed by the section on climate change - see the above quote. Extract:
