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. A survey of 1,150 youngsters aged between seven and 11 found that one in four blamed politicians for the problems of climate change.Yes we all know it’s Bush’s fault that China and India have better economies now. Their better economies allow them to buy things that the West has (like cars) and these things cause global warming.
One in seven of those questioned by supermarket giant Somerfield said their own parents were not doing enough to improve the environment.If you can’t scare the crap out of adults, you might as well target the kids.
The most feared consequences of global warming included poor health, the possible submergence of entire countries and the welfare of animals.Please not the animals!!!
Pete Williams, of Somerfield, said: "Concerns over our environment dominate the media at present and kids are exposed to the hard facts as much as anybody.I think this study proves that kids are NOT exposed to the hard facts. If global warming were a true threat, wouldn’t the people with the best judgment (adults) be the most worried about it? Sorry if I don’t trust the judgment of a bunch of rug rats in the UK.
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.The only way global warming is affecting kids is through environmentalists use of fear and terror. Their anxiety is not rational and wouldn't exist were it not for the overzealousness of environmentalists.
By raising awareness amongst today's young, hopefully we are improving our chances of reaching a solution.Translation: If we can blame rich people, big business, and American’s for more of our problems, we can reach our socialist goals.
