It would be funny…

sign-blanding-turtleWellington Times, Rick Conroy
With school children arrayed at his feet, Ontario’s environment minister, Glenn Murray, announced last week his government was giving $1 million to an organization dedicated to educating children aged five to 11, about how to help protect animals and their habitats. His advice to the children assembled at the ROM for the press event was predictable, if somewhat ham-handed: Go home and tell your parents and grandparents to use less carbon.

Murray isn’t the first to employ children to market his wares. Cereal makers, burger sellers and dictators have all used children to influence decision-makers. The Ontario government isn’t above using an effective marketing technique to sell its message, even when the moral and ethical turf is a bit squishy. Earth Rangers formed in 2001. The funding from the province will help the organization expand its school assembly program and develop a new Grade 6 class visit program.

For Murray, this is an investment in the minds of young and impressionable children— a recruiting drive for foot soldiers in his campaign to restore his government’s credibility on environmental matters. “The most thoughtful discussions that move people to change are discussions between children and their parents, and children and each other,” noted Murray to the children before him.

Eventually, however, Murray will be challenged to square his government’s words with its actions. Rather than educate children about nature, he risks teaching them about the nature of government. Read article

  1. And Kathleen Wynne is not above using her granddaughter, Olivia. Hope the kid turns out OK. Her Granny certainly should know better having been involved with a psychotherapy training institute.

  2. Everyone on the band wagon.. Children are like sponges .. And are taught to listen to their elders .. Even if it poisons them.
    All smoke and mirrors. Too bad some city children couldn’t get a real summer camp and live in rural ontario.
    I’m sure they would not have political poison shoved down their throats .

  3. This is absolutely not funny, but this is the extent these global warmers will go to to brainwash our children. This video is graphic, but I wouldn’t put it past the Wynne Government to do something like this.

      The 10:10 Splattergate goes “sploot” – a roundup

      ‘[excerpt] Paul Chesser at the American Spectator writes:

      It looks like Sony and Kyocera Mita have demanded their removal from all associations with the extremist climate group 10:10.org, which produced that exploding schoolchildren video last week. The corporations’ names have been removed from the list of partners, and a lengthy post by Sony’s point-person on climate change, Naomi Climer, has been deleted from the 10:10 site.

      Not only that, but a huge U.S. environmentalist promoter and partner, 350.org (headed by Bill McKibben), is no longer listed as an organizational partner. Both 10:10 and 350 have been heavily promoting an October 10 (10/10/10) “global workday” to supposedly bring fresh attention to the global warming threat. The message from 350.org’s press shop:

      We respect 10:10’s previous work to encourage companies, schools, and churches to voluntarily cut their carbon emissions 10%. Upon seeing the video, however, we have informed 10:10 that we can no longer remain partners on 10/10/10 or any other initiative. 350.org maintains an absolute commitment to nonviolence in word and deed.

      Ow, that’s gotta hurt.’

      • So we know that every CCAlarmist org. on the planet, are or will be in Canada, to fight against our best choice for government in this falls fed election, so I’m wondering if the date scheduled for this propaganda festival, October 10, is designed to change minds at the last minute, to support the anyone but Harper movement?
        If we Canadians win this election, it’ll be an absolute miracle.
        That what happens I guess, actually I know, when you and your leader, are the top country & statesman in the world.
        Re-elect Harper, to save the planet & Canada. It’s the only choice, facts be known.
