“The judge identified nine aspects of An Inconvenient Truth, nine core errors, where Al Gore either misstated the IPCC or prejudicially exaggerated what they found.” John Day is the lawyer for a British parent who sued the British Department
of Education when they tried to distribute An Inconvenient Truth to schools.
Something Smells In American Schools

President Obama's speech to schoolchildren this week ended up being rather benign, but parents were right to pitch a fit about it beforehand. They may have forced the White House to abandon the kind of nonsense American children see every day on topics like global warming.

As a former teacher, I used to help pump liberal ideas into schools. But now I am infuriated when I hear children spouting global warming hysteria because I know they are getting those harebrained ideas from adults who should know better.

I saw it in Northern Ireland during the filming of Not Evil Just Wrong. Here's a clip that shows how children are being frightened:

If that isn't enough to convince you that teachers are terrifying children, watch two music videos about "climate change" that are composed in styles that appeal to children - one from an initiative funded by NASA and the National Science Foundation and another by the group EkoBoys.

On second thought, don't watch the videos. They're painfully long, and the music may cause your head to explode. But do read the lyrics so you can appreciate the in-your-face false messages that children hear through subtle techniques like music videos. Here are two excerpts:

From "Take Aim At Climate Change": "For real, all it takes is a couple degrees before floods, droughts and hurricanes are not anomalies, and all these catastrophes become our new realities comin' down on the world just like the Sword of Damocles.

From the EkoBoys: "I'm standing alone, watching the world going down, from toxic waste and global warming. I feel so weak."

That kind of propaganda is being pushed into schools every day. The NASA/NSF video is part of the Passport To Knowledge project aimed at secondary school students.

The Alliance for Climate Change, meanwhile, was created solely to teach children myths about the environment. As The American Spectator noted this week in a story headlined "I Pledge To Promote Global Warming Propaganda," the group already has "educators" pushing its propaganda in five major U.S. cities - Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles and San Francisco/Oakland. ACE hopes to teach/indoctrinate 140,000 students by the end of the year.

ACE's techniques include high school assemblies that are designed to "activate, educate [and] your school to create a future safe from climate change," according to the trailer for the program. One student in the trailer admitted that he paid more attention to the message because of the animation, which included farting cows, sound effects and all.

Like all environmentalists who have infiltrated American schools, ACE definitely knows how to manipulate its target demographic.

Impressionable children will never know they're being brainwashed when scientifically flawed information is hidden within music videos and clever animation. Parents won't know it, either, if they don't pay attention to what the schools are force-feeding their kids.

It's time for parents to make a bigger stink in schools than any cow fart.

New BRANCH CARBONIAN CULT label for the AGW Scam
Dear NotEvilJustWrong.com Leaders:

As a matter of truth-in-labeling and of "Knowing the Enemy," please take time to word-search the recommended new "BRANCH CARBONIAN CULT" name for this pseudo-religious AGW scam -- whose self-evident cultic characteristics include

1. Leadership by a self-glorifying, manipulative New Age Prophet -- in this case, former Vice-President Al Gore, though he is rapidly being supplanted by President Barack Obama.

2. Assertion of an apocalyptic threat to all mankind.

3. An absolutist definition of both the threat and the proposed solution(s).

4. Promise of a salvation from this pending apocalypse.

5. Devotion to an inspired text which (arguendo) embodies all the answers -- in this case, Prophet Gore's pseudo-scientific book "Earth in the Balance" and his more recent "An Inconvenient Truth" documentary.

6. A specific list of "truths" (see the Ten Commandments listed below) which must be embraced and proselytized by all Cult members.

7. An absolute intolerance of any deviation from any of these truths by any Cult member.

8. A strident intolerance of any outside criticism of the Cult's definition of the problem or of its proposed solutions.

9. A "Heaven-on-Earth" vision of the results of the mission's success and/or a "Hell-on-Earth" result if the cultic mission should fail.

10. An inordinate fear (and an outright rejection of the possibility) of being proven wrong in either the apocalyptic vision or the proposed salvation

Since every such Prophet-led, scare-mongering, pseudo-religious conspiracy needs a properly descriptive name, and since this one's primary concerns over alleged depletion of the so-called "ozone layer" over Antarctica have shifted to a panic over CO2, instead, a fitting name for this cultic gaggle might be the "Branch Carbonian Cult" --

o "Branch" because it is a radical offshoot from the main body of science-based environmentalism;

o "Carbonian" because of its professed fear of carbon dioxide as a primary cause of AGW; and

o "Cult" because of its self-evident structure and practices -- which are in full accord with most elements of the typical religious cult, Branch Davidian or Jim Jonesian or otherwise.

Naturally, anything you can do to use this new label or post the AmericanThinker.com article which explains its validity in great detail -- http://www.americanthinker.com/jim_guirard/ -- will keep the ball rolling to make this condemnatory label a permanent part of the political and environmental affairs lexiclon.
