Yet more indoctrination of our children

It's a very subtle and clever tactic - Earth Hour seems like a bit of fun, and the kids will love it, but the reality is that it has a deeply political message, urging governments around the world to "tackle climate change". Schools wouldn't dream of take sides in political matters such as the Iraq or Afghanistan wars, or workplace legislation, or advocating socialism over capitalism (or vice versa) [Although in New South Wales, they probably would - Ed], so why are they doing exactly that in relation to "climate change"?

More indoctrination dressed up as harmless fun from the Southern Highland News (also from the Fairfax stable):
IT'S lights out at Oxley College for Earth Hour this Saturday.

The Burradoo school will join more than 1000 towns and cities across the world, from the Chatham Islands to the Arctic Sea, in turning off their lights between 8.30pm and 9.30pm in a call for action on climate change.

Oxley College Parents and Friends (P&F) are inviting guests to their Earth Hour event to bring their own personal lighting, with a prize to be awarded for the most original (no naked flames).

The event is a great way to introduce young children to the importance of addressing climate change issues, as well as being a lot of fun.

Drip, drip, drip...

  • Wow, thx fr educating me so much about in inconsistencies of climate change. I've never cared much about earth hour but that was more out of dependence for technology than anything else...
    I've always questioned government spending on climate goals and now I'm more sure than ever that conforming to the theory of "climate change" will cripple our economy further...

  • I don't know if you have small kids but on Foxtels Nick Jr station they were running HEAPS of Earth Hour ads.

    They were specifically directed at kids and urged them to get involved.

    Brainwashing 7 year olds is a sorry, sorry thing to do...
