Over Climate Change

As the COP26 climate summit raged in Glasgow, Scotland, the past couple of weeks, PBS churned out plenty of taxpayer-funded doom and gloom predictions, and, at worst, even seemed to defend the irrational "climate anxiety" felt by some school children who have sadly been indoctrinated by the liberal media on the issue.On Wednesday's show PBS NewsHour, anchor Judy Woodruff relayed results from a poll commissioned by PBS NewsHour and Generation Lab, finding that substantial percentages of children believe climate change will effect important life issues for them later on like having children or where they live.

20 years ago, children were shown a fake picture and told that global warming was killing all the polar bears. Many were devastated, and it was all a lie. In 2006, the World Wildlife Federation said polar bears would be extinct in 20 years. Those bears better start dying soon; only 5 years left for them to disappear.

Gee, my generation was taught to duck and cover as a defense from a nuclear attack. All the while living next to one of the air force bases managing the air defense systems with nuclear missiles. In an attack we would have been vaporized immediately.

Sure work with the people whose entire life time experience is less than ten years. The older people have been around long enough to know that absolutely nothing the climate alarmists have claimed will happen has ever happened.

Of you would too if you believed all the malarky the media spews. If you have been around a few years you would have a better perspective. The survey itself is feeding into their narrative. Have you notice how young these TV commentators are. They are so young, they believe all they hear.

Children should not fear the weather. The United Nations parasites have been predicting we will all die in 10 years since 1972. Nothing happened. Children should be taught about how Donald Trump was so Great that he stopped the seas rising for four wonderful years of peace and prosperity.

When I was growing up in the 70's, the common theme was the coming ice age, how icebergs were going to cover New York City by the end of the century, how we needed to get used to the idea of snow in July, how we'd all be wearing parkas year round. It was all a load of bull designed to scare children. None of the predictions ever came true. Scaring children with propaganda for nefarious adult purposes is one of the most vile forms of child abuse!! Why can't leftists just let kids be kids???!!

Remember those stories about the bogey man? They were really scary to me as a kid. What this despicable climate change religion is doing is in the same vein. They are scaring kids to death! Children have no reference no place to go to to get away from this daily indoctrination. They should be taught about protecting the environment, conservation, to be respectful of our planet but to put on their little souls our very existence is child abuse. They do not need to carry such a heavy burden. Adults have created this mess. When they make rules for the West that are totally ignored by severe polluters like India and China, it is beyond hypocrisy. It indicates they are not serious. If they were, they would change their lifestyles and would insist that everyone on this round planet be held to the same standards. They destroy gas and oil even though great strides have been made to ensure they are clean and more environmentally friendly. This is why they have zero moral authority. Climate Nazi’s have ruined any dialogue or debate. They reject truth for a belief they cannot scientifically prove yet want a complete upending of the West’s energy policies. The advocates are nothing more than modern snake oil salesmen and like everything else in this world that is swirling down the drain, it is caused by committed adherents who are wed to an idea that simply is not true. Their use of indoctrinating children is not new, it is a method used by Adolph Hitler and every maniacal dictator down through history. They know if they can indoctrinate the children, they have an true believer for life.

FEAR is a tool that has been used by the deep state to get good people to run to their poisonous trough. Choose carefully what you will fear. The Bible says: "The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death." "In the fear of the Lord is strong confidence: and his children shall have a place of refuge." "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction." "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding."

As I remember in the early '50s as a 4 yo tot I only reacted to my parents so a child today would only react if the parents tell them that climate change was devastating. Blame the parents first leave the children out of this. I don't believe this garbage just like a parent telling their child he/she is of the opposite sex what will the child believe?

I can remember what the Sierra Club did with ANWR porn in the 80s. They had everyone (nearly) believing those mountains depicted on the calendars they sold- which were actually photos from somewhere in American/Canadian Rockies. The landscape in ANWR is a half-frozen, swampy tundra that would be impossible to hike , let alone provide a place to 'recreate'.

The Wyoming Republican Party voted on Saturday to no longer recognize Democrat-allied Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) as a Republican.“The 31-29 vote Saturday in Buffalo, Wyoming, by the state party central committee followed votes by local GOP officials in about one-third of Wyoming’s 23 counties to no longer recognize Cheney as a Republican,” the Associated Press reported Monday evening.Cheney responded to the devastating vote by calling it “laughable.” Republicans have “allowed themselves to be held hostage to the lies of a dangerous and irrational man,” Cheney spokesman Jeremy Adler told the Hill, referencing former President Trump.Cheney is facing a tough reelection campaign against Trump-endorsed Harriet Hageman, who is a Cheyenne attorney

The holiday season has long been a source of contention for many families, but this year families may be even more divided with almost two-thirds of fully jabbed Americans reportedly planning to ban their unvaccinated relatives from holiday festivities. The November 2 study by OnePoll analyzed the responses of 2,000 U.S. residents about how the COVID-19 vaccine has influenced relationships with loved ones. Fully vaccinated individuals accounted for 65 percent of respondents and nearly six out of 10 of those respondents had already severed ties with unvaccinated family members. CORRECTION*

Watching the news, one sees constant stories about COVID numbers rising, yet again, now almost two years into this pandemic, with COVID hospitalizations in some states higher than they have ever been except for the spike last December. In my state of Colorado, the test positivity rate is almost 10 percent, with 1 in 48 infected and if the current trend continues, this will be the worst COVID spike the state has seen. On the surface, that doesn’t make sense, since nearly 80 percent of eligible Coloradans have received at least one vaccine dose, suggesting the vaccines are not working as well as they should or as advertised

WASHINGTON — Pete Buttigieg, the transportation secretary who holds the purse strings to much of President Joe Biden’s $1 trillion infrastructure package, was holding forth with reporters on its impact — the promise of more electric cars, intercity train routes, bigger airports — when a pointed question came. How would he go about building racial equity into infrastructure? The 39-year-old former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate laid out his argument that highway design can reflect racism, noting that at least $1 billion in the bill will help reconnect cities and neighborhoods that had been racially segregated or divided by road projects. CORRECTIONS*

The effort needs work. Lots of work.“Reversing this trend is a top priority for me,” President Biden belatedly claimed Wednesday, after his Labor Department reported the consumer price index rose 6.2 percent in October over the same period last year, the biggest jump in 30 years.
