'There is no climate crisis, but there is a crisis of climate superstition, fraud, incompetence, and censorship. And it is being used to terrify children and threaten the future of western civilization.'

Johnny Ball on School Science: Why are we scaring our kids?
The distinguished presenter of TV programmes and talks on mathematics and science for children has just been on a daytime news programme on UK TV, showing a brief movie about his views, and being interviewed. The transcipt is over at GWPF: http://www.thegwpf.org/opinion-pros-a-cons/2563-johnny-ball-why-are-we-scaring-our-kids-to-death.html
He asks 'Why are we scaring our kids to death?'
So, why are we? And who is doing it? The school curriculum seems obsessed with violence, tragedy, and disasters such as National Socialism and WWII, fatuous talk of CAGW, and pollution of various kinds, and of course the counter-progressive mush of 'sustainability'. Who is it that is so determined to give our children a poor view of humanity and our prospects? They want to 'make little activists'. Why do we let them within a mile of young minds and spirits?
Well done Johnny Ball for taking this fight into that heart of the 'liberal' darkness, the BBC.
