There have been various reports written of late about the effect of indoctrination on young minds. Children, instead of enjoying their few years of youth, are now bombarded by a phalanx of well meaning educators who parrot the sins of the parents be it five a day, obesity, smoking, paedophilia and Climate Change. So many of these seemingly well meaning invasions of the class room are actually paid for and supported by global industries. I recently came across what I considered a pretty awful and irresponsible photograph of primary children hugging a turbine. Firstly this is crass indoctination and secondly a turbine is a potentially dangerous and industrial environment. Would you allow your children to play on a building site or walk around a working factory? I hope not. France places a 500m exclusion around turbine and the US and Canada are considering and in local cases have imposed a 350 ft zone. They do this from experience and with safety in mind and yet our children’s teachers consider it appropriate to allow young children to hug a turbine. These are not safe environments for children. It is therefore inappropriate to encourage children to do this. Do you let your child play on the railway line? Ice fall and equipement malfunction can and do cause injuries, sometimes fatal. Those towers are producing up to 3mw of electricity. On this particular issue I refer you to http://www.alienergy.org.uk/education.htmlwhich you will immediately notice is funded by the wind industry! Does this same education extend to wildlife attrition, damage to water courses and the ecology by the insertion of thousands of tons of concrete. Does it discuss the health issues caused by flicker and noise on ordinary people and the stress caused to often elderly people, possibly these same children’s grandparents, that find the drop in value of their properties cause them to become imprisoned in a nightmare. These same children’s parents may well have invested everything in properties now blighted by the close prescence of wind farms. This
divison created between family and school reminds me of the 10/10 film of exploding children in the classroom. This is 1984 come a bit late.
The other aspect of this is the effect on the children. Many parents may have diametrically oposite views to those espoused as may some teachers. The fracture of beliefs may have a very harmful effect on young minds. Only recently two young girls took there own lives after following a TV program where the “heroine” is faced with being taken into care. Young minds are impressionable and we should take great care how we try to influence them. One of the two greatest worries for the future cited by under six year olds is climate change, an unproven and debatable philosophy espoused by the IPCC, jumped on by european interests, (who are the largest manufacturers of turbines?) and become almost a religion with the DECC and certainly Holyrood.
Education or Indoctrination
Head of the IPCC, The UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, Dr Pauchari, the much discredited Chairman but still hanging on there, stated “Children…I think we have to Sensitise the young……They will probably shame adults into taking the right steps” Well, The Scottish Government is doing it with enthusiasm. Financed by Highland and Islands Enterprise, a government financing body with the support of the Renewable Industry and through a subsiduary organisation called Hi-energy, they are issuing “Fact” sheets to our Forms P6 and P7, age 10-11years, junior school children. These are highly slanted towards the renewable industry and are full of dubious statements. However some of their conclusions as to negative impacts are very similar to our own and run contrary to the spin of Scottish Renewables. Like always, but unlike the Government, we are bringing these to you to form your own opinions.

Climate Change and Education
I have a great concern and it is the indoctrination of our youngsters in schools with the concerns of Climate Change. The two biggest worries that children have according to research are wars and climate change. Some years ago the IPCC said that it was imperative to “sensitize” children to Climate Change so that they could enforce their “views” on the parents. http://notrickszone.com/2010/10/04/pachauri-we-have-to-sensitize-children/This sounds awfully like mind control to me. Essentially the way that Climate Change is brought into nearly every lesson would not be allowed in Prisons without being referred to the European Court of Human Rights, but we allow it in our schools. For the last three years education packs on renewable, with nice wind turbine models, have been provided to all youngsters. In the Highland region that is now being surplanted with more education packs for P6 and P7 financed by HIE and Highland Council. However they do not allow voice to those that challenge the orthodoxy. Education should be a balance of information. If there is such a Consensus of agreement on Climate Change why are so many scientists vociferous in their opposition. Science is surely the continued challenging and revisiting of doctrines to improve and understand. Therefore consensus is a word that should never be used in Science. In this case I think that balance is sadly lacking. On a recent march against wind farms in Edinburgh it was noticeable that most people were happy to take and consider our leaflets. Youngsters however would not even look at them and in many cases showed open hostility. Does this concern you?
Another article in the Mail has just been published about the Climate Change Lies in the new Times Atlas of the World. It is a disgusting attempt to indoctrinate a new generation by twisted truths and blatant manipulation of fact. Global Warming and the Twisting of Children\’s Minds
A few comments on the Daily Mail article:
The biosphere is so huge that scientists across many disciplines disagree on how huge. As someone wrote if we think we can change or control climate, then we’re like the flea on the back of the elephant which thinks it can control in which direction the elephant goes
The world has had warm periods and it’s had cold periods (AKA Ice ages). It’s a natural phenomenon. Are all the dogmatic fanatics who are trying to blame it on Man’s influence saying that they will prevent the climate ever changing again? Well, it will change, whatever we do, and we should all be thankful that we live in an age when it’s getting warmer and not colder
IPCC – Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Control. Synonym. PPPPP – People in Power who Peddle Pure Poppycock. I have read some of the available information on the subject. From the experts who disagree, facts, figures and illustration. From the IPCC authoritive sounding assertions. I heard it the other day from the evangelist Mr. Huhne, but he has the power and position. There has never been such a dumbing down of reason and fairness since Charles1st. dissolved Parliament. There has never been a balanced debate among equals, and the 2008 Act was passed by people who heard only what they wanted to hear (money) by propaganda and pathological denial. Now the money men are in on the act, I suspect it will be a ‘settled science’. until the next ice age
Can you please explain why James Hansen’s 1988 model predictions of temperature increases have failed to be matched by real world observations. Why the models, again, predicted increases in sea temperatures which ARGO has failed to find and why there is no hot spot in the troposphere, another triumph for the computer predictions. Tell us where, in the peer reviewed literature, it has been proven that the observed warming during the 20th century was anthropogenic in origin and why you think the null hypothesis isn’t valid
Life is too short to worry about climate change. It changes so slowly as to not be noticeable in a lifetime so each generation thinks that the climate they are born into is the right one. We only hear about the disadvantages of global warming. Here is a huge advantage; longer growing season, more food.
Someone please find out who suggested telling primary 6 kids that the first dog in space, Laika, came back to Earth alive and wagging his tail. My daughter is doing a project on the solar system, complete with an alien invasion and that happy Russian dog-in-space story. She also thinks that Orson Welles’ War of the Worlds radio broadcast caused panic in Fife, Scotland because teacher’s granny was one of the kids who ran away after listening to it. All quite funny but turns into a right pain when your own child believes the teacher over the correct story
Global warming and the EU have this in common. Whenever inconvenient facts are presented they ignore them and carry on
