“Daddy Drinks Because You Cry”

Only in La-La land can terrorizing your children with fear be considered a virtue. After all, we all know how much an 8 year old can impact the output of CO2, what with all that irresponsible joy-riding they do and such.

Half of young children are anxious about the effects of global warming, often losing sleep because of their concern, according to a new report today.
What’s paralyzingly stupid, is that the author chooses not to notice that the kids are being propagandized out of their childhood joy - again, as if it’s perfectly sensible to channel your fears, politics, and obsessions on them.
Are you doing enough?

One in seven of those questioned by supermarket giant Somerfield said their own parents were not doing enough to improve the environment.
Children learn abstract concepts like this sort of fear from adults, and increasingly adults who are not their parent(s), only parrot them back to adults, increasingly their parent(s) for affirmation. Anyone unaware of this is either a post-modern idiot, doesn't have contact with kids, or couldn’t care less about them. In general, wanting to use them to reinforce your world view leads to them being little more than a mal-adjusted outcome of an experiment for the selfish.
The most feared consequences of global warming included poor health, the possible submergence of entire countries and the welfare of animals.
I guess that every time you turn the lights on, Jesus kills a puppy.
"While many adults may look the other way, this study should show that global warming is not only hurting the children of the future, it's affecting the welfare of kids now.
Now, just who is it hurting those children’s feelings?
