'Children are encouraged to express what they feel when it comes to understand the world around them. For example; climate change feels bad because humans are destroying the planet. Capitalism feels bad because we are exploiting the poor. Masculinity feels bad because males oppress women. Environmentalism feels good because we are saving the planet. Socialism feels great because we take care of the poor in society. Feminism feels wonderful because girls are empowered against male oppression. The method of teaching students to “feel” (i.e. perception from senses) instead of to “think” (i.e. conception from judgement) is the problem with education. It is the reason why Johnny can’t think.

'Green Power, Black Death', has just published a new essay on WUWT pointing out many absurdities and harms associated with 'sustainability'. An extract is given below, but see the original for a great deal more. Anyone concerned with protecting children from the excesses of eco-fanatics ought to read it. Some may choose to specialise in this area. I hope.
"As President Trump downgrades the relevance of Obama era climate change and anti-fossil fuel policies, many environmentalists are directing attention to “sustainable development.”

Yet the case for alarm is a flimsy one.
A long road lies ahead of us who want to help the victims of the scaremongering, and help them and those who exploit them gain a more reasonable, calmer view of climate variation and its multiple causes. Anyone who wants to do this needs to get well-informed about the climate system, and no doubt this seems like an impossible task to many. But non-specialists can get informed enough to raise good questions, recognise decent replies, and discuss policy implications.
Just published on WUWT is an excellent essay triggered by yet another book on the climate scare written by victims of it. The essay has many valuable insights and many useful links to help the reader investigate further. I commend it to all those who come this way and want to get better informed. Here are a couple of extracts from the essay to whet your appetites:
(Extract 1) "I served in the Air Force as a weather officer from 1953–1957, earned my Ph.D. in meteorology from Florida State University, joined the National Hurricane Center in 1961, where I served for 25 years and was Director from 1974–1987 (the longest term of any Director), then served as chief meteorologist for the CBS TV affiliate in Houston until my retirement in 2008—a retirement during which I have continued and even expanded my studies of global climate change.
