Students "urged to spread climate awareness"
NSW Deputy Premier and Minister for the Environment and Climate Change, Carmel Tebbutt, said the 2009 Beyond Earth Hour Challenge would encourage students to conduct energy audits and raise climate change awareness.
"These are significant savings that have made a huge impact thanks to a few simple measures," Ms Tebbutt said.
"The challenge calls for schools to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and make energy savings aimed at fostering a culture of sustainability."
NSW Education Minister Verity Firth said the program was being expanded so more NSW secondary schools could get involved.
This isn't education, of course, it's pure political indoctrination, and is completely inappropriate in any school. But who cares? The left-wing NSW government doesn't give a rats for proper education, and it is happy to use any tactic it likes to spread its Marxist ideologies, including the indoctrination of future voters.
