Climate Change Propaganda For 7-Year Olds

One of our readers sent me this power point presentation, which his seven year old was given for home schooling on Earth Day.

I have not included all of the slides, but these are the key ones:

What is Climate Change Powerpoint

The whole thing is nothing but pure propaganda. It most certainly is not factual, nor does it explain to kids the real implications of the policies proposed by the likes of Greta.

Indeed, the suggestions of “how we can help” are infantile and risk making children think think that is all they need to do.

They may be seven year olds, but they should be treated with more respect and honesty.

I don’t know who produced this presentation or if it is officially approved. If anyone has any more info, please let me know.

    Why would developing countries experience more droughts?

    How does climate change know which countries to not rain on?

      It clearly does – look at Israel and Syria. The conflict in Syria was caused by Climate Change that somehow knew to stop at the border…

    The last time this tripe was offered to schools Christopher Monkton took them to court as beiing factually misleading – and won.

    “I don’t know who produced this presentation or if it is officially approved. If anyone has any more info, please let me know.”

    Twinkl:

    That leads to:

    “How can I teach KS1 about climate change?

    Climate change is an important issue for our world. This useful resource explains to Key Stage One children what climate change is and what the main causes of it are. It explains the effects that climate change has on the world around us and how we can act to help reduce the problem. It contains a PowerPoint and a useful guide with several ideas of practical activities and experiments to do to help children understand this important issue.”

      Just goes on and on. It’s packed with propaganda at all learning levels if you search.

      Says they are teacher created lessons (so anyone is free to upload propaganda I expect).

      Remember when the Judge threatened teachers with being guilty of indoctrination if they didn’t correct the errors in Gore’s film if showing it? I bet they are repeating some of those lies in these lessons. But now it’s all just blatant indoctrination and it’s politically incorrect to complain or not to believe

      Officially recommended!

      No, it sounds more like Child abuse to me. No wonder our education tends to be behind most others,

    Greta knows best. Truancy is the source of her wisdom.

      Then the teachers can hardly complain if parents persuade their children to wag off these lessons – and claim they are following in GT’s footsteps, if not for the same reasons.
      I do hope I do not find such rubbish being pushed at my very young grandson…

      Greta was never a truant from her so-called school. Attendance was/is voluntary because anyway the ‘pupils’ are all educationally sub-normal.

    The history of this propaganda…https://ldc.co.uk/top-50/jonathan-seaton/

    “Twinkl has followed a classic “disrupter” path…”

    A frustrated, struggling teacher and a failed, unfulfilled attorney? Be disruptive! $$$$

    My granddaughter’s school has made Greta a modern St. Joan and use material similar to the above, unfortunately I can’t get a copy at the moment.

    The work that they do in Geography is pure brainwashing and she cannot understand how I can say that it is junk science and Greta is just a manipulated kid. The staff at schools are fully brainwashed by the UK media and sadly are poorly equipped to question “the proven science”.

    Unfortunately, teacher training colleges are infantile. The only adult occupation is sec between lecturers and students. I have been on holiday with these degenerates.

    Even the first slide is total junk.

    No wonder that ‘Antarctic’ Polar Bear looks lost, had a nap and woke up at the opposite end of the earth.

    Biggest threat to nesting Turtles is tourists using the same beaches, and nesting Turtle sightseers, and as we all know the vast majority of coral islands are stable/growing, and other beaches will just move with the sea. The Turtles have no serious worry from sea level. More females means more eggs and happy males – of course over a few generations the remaining males will have the genetics with a tendency to produce males under the prevailing conditions, so again won’t be a problem.

    Nice factoid stated as fact – why would climate change select developing nations for drought? Again as we all know, largely food production is going up and up and politics/war causes disruption to farming and food supply.

    From wiki: “Twinkl was founded by Jonathan Seaton and Susie Seaton (a former early years teacher) in 3rd February 2010, and launched in 24th March 2010. While working as a teacher, Susie had difficulty sourcing materials for her lessons, which led the couple to begin creating their own resources and publishing these online. Twinkl now creates digital teaching materials for educators worldwide. This includes materials for primary schools, secondary schools, parents, home educators, childminders, English as a second language, special educational needs and disabilities, adult education and international markets.”

    According to Companies House, in 2019 they had a turnover of over £18,000,000.
    Say no more…

    My 9 year old niece was told by her teacher last year that the world was going to end and we were all going to die unless we obeyed “the scientists”.
    It seems that primary school teachers in Ireland have simply swapped Catholic propaganda for Marxist propaganda.

    ‘They may be seven year olds’

    They may be 40 year olds, but mentally arrested around 7 or 8.

    This also explains the Left.

    Anyone with a problem explaining to youngsters the truth about climate behaviour is advised to get from Amazon a copy of this booklet “Kids Guide to Climate Change”, link here:

    Sets it out simply but authoritively in child-friendly terms.

    Why are children being used in this way I wonder? How can 7 year olds be expected to understand complex things like climate change? The answer is of course that they don’t and the less they understand the easier it is for them to believe. It is a form of child abuse and child exploitation in the guise of education.

    “Give me a child until he is 7 and I will show you the man.”
    ― Aristotle, The Philosophy of Aristotle

    This is pure religion/ marxism….same thing they know if you influence a child then you have them for life. What wicked wicked people they are. This is child abuse. Why is this not being called out?

    Also I laughed about the turtles…as if a beach is a static entity. Beaches move back and forward under transgression and regression but why am I arguing this because NONE of the claims are based on sober science, rather an arts graduates cherry picking of sound bites. Clearly the writer(s) is ignorant of the geological record

      I noticed that one! We know that turtles have been around since before the last Ice Age and they coped with the change in sea levels when that Ice Age ended!

        Watching Wild Arabia episode 2 last night the narrator said that turtles date back to the dinosaurs. I wonder if it a record for the BBC in not mentioning climate change, even when referring to how Arabia was once lush and green.

    Twinkl is an Australian site: https://www.twinkl.com.au/search
    It has a whole shed full of “Climate Change – it is all our fault” stuff – needs to be made accountable and asked for evidence

    My daughter in law advises that all schools use Twinkl. That’s all that needs to be said relating to the availability of the information, the brainwashing of children and vulnerable (I say this as that is what they are)? Regrettably this sort of thing is now the norm, those of us that like to question the validity of assertions are no longer relevant in the eyes of the policy makers, losing battles come to mind. Depressing.

    Md 8 year old granddaughter lives in Washington DC with her divorced mother, I go over every year for a few weeks to help look after her. I do the school run, last year while attending an open day I noticed all the climate change paintings and posters, along similar lines to this propaganda, plastered all over….Carbon Dioxide is depicted the villain and we must stop using fossil fuels……. then came the day on the bus coming home that she expressed, tearfully, how worried she was about carbon dioxide destroying the world….I took a deep breathe and explained Carbon Dioxide was the major source of all food on this planet..gave her the basics of photosynthesis, Told her Carbon Dioxide was the source of life. Is that true grandad? I never heard that before………

    This sort of brainwashing has been around for years. I remembered “Schools Low Carbon Day”, which is archived at the Wayback Machine:

    https://web.archive.org/web/20100601040926/http://lowcarbonday.com/

    Schools Low Carbon Day is about:

    Educating children about climate change.
    Focusing children on their own energy consumption / carbon footprint.
    Encouraging action by asking children and / or their families to make a pledge to cut their carbon emissions in some way.

    Why take part?

    Climate change will affect our children more than ourselves.

    Schools have a vital role to play in educating children about the issue.

    Our children influence our own behaviour – research has shown that families are more likely to recycle if children are taught the benefits in schools

    And from this page:

    https://web.archive.org/web/20100603025647/http://www.lowcarbonday.com/lessonsprimary.php

    Introduction to climate change

    Age: this can be adapted for primary (7-11) and secondary classes (11-18)

    Time: 1 – 2 hours in total, divided into short sections

    Format – there is a powerpoint presentation and teacher notes to accompany the presentation

    The website “Cool The World” was also active at about the same time, but no longer working.
