'According to Wrightstone, we should be communicating to young people that life is better than it’s ever been before. Earth is thriving, prospering, greening and benefiting from that growth. We have longer life expectancies; our food production is outpacing population growth. Air is getting cleaner. Our water is cleaner. Droughts and fires are in decline. Humanity and the earth are thriving and prospering which is in contrast to what we are being told and we just don’t see it. There’s an unrelenting barrage day after day of incorrect information that fits political ideologies and narratives, but it just isn’t correct science.'

For the classroom wall, or the staff-room wall, or your kitchen wall - several conversation pieces each month - all with charm and even compassion, not least for the afflicted ones and their self-anointed leaders.
It also makes for a good gift, as does Josh's new book: 'All You Need to Know About Climate Change - in cartoons'
'Nobody does a better job of exposing with wit the shaky foundations on which these predictions of doom are built than Josh. In these pages are real scientific, economic and political arguments expressed in ingenious cartoons, their background explained in paragraphs of pithy text.'
Couldn't have said it better myself.
A great present for young and old, and it could especially help any teenagers you know at high school who may be deeply troubled thanks to the wicked propaganda they have been subjected to all their days.

And from the comments on that post, here is a link to a video with more explicitly highlighted ideas here for senior pupils doing projects on climate alarmism:
(hat-tip: CO2 is Life, https://wattsupwiththat.com/2019/11/27/apocalypse-deferred/#comment-2856368)
And for pupils doing a project on English lit and climate change, or journalism and climate, might well find inspiration here:
And to mark the recent passing of Clive James, here is a relevant poem of his:
The imminent catastrophe goes on
Not showing many signs of happening.
The ice at the North Pole that should be gone
By now, is awkwardly still lingering,
And though sometimes the weather is extreme
It seems no more so than when we were young
Who soon will hear no more of this grim theme
Reiterated in the special tongue
Of manufactured fright. Sea Level Rise
Will be here soon and could do such-and-such,
Say tenured pundits with unblinking eyes.
Continuing to not go up by much,
The sea supports the sceptics, but they, too,
Lapse into oratory when they predict
The sure collapse of the alarmist view
Like a house of cards, for they could not have picked
A metaphor less suited to their wish.
A house of cards subsides with just a sigh
And all the cards are still there.
Feverish Talk of apocalypse might, by and by,
Die down, but the deep anguish will persist.
His death, and not the Earth’s, is the true fear
That motivates the doomsday fantasist:
There can be no world if he is not here.
-- Clive James, The Times, 17 March 2016

Aussie MP Rubbishes Climate Emergency Myth.
That invaluable blog, 'Not a Lot of People Know That', has an embedded video of an Australian politician making some telling points about a climate emergency which has become as fashionable as it is unfounded:
More of this please. Will schoolteachers dare use this short video clip in class? Let us hope there are still some in that profession who value reality over ideology, and dislike scaremongering about CO2.
For more by way of chapter and verse, with lots of illustrations, about there not being a 'climate emergency' try: https://realclimatescience.com/2019/11/there-is-no-climate-crisis/
'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.'
Or, if you prefer video, here is a good one on this topic by the same author:

Tom Nelson is drawing attention to a new threat to the well-being of children around the world - a new Gore-developed presentation designed to alarm and to upset. Here is some of the promotion for it on Al Gore's own blog:
'The climate crisis affects all of us. And it’s up to all of us to solve it.
