Global Warmingistas Hit Another Low With Letter To Children “About Your Father”

A couple of weeks  ago, I published a piece on  two of the stupidest commercials that I had ever seen. One was to scare children to believe that global warming would drown puppies and starve bunny rabbits, and the other showed the ever-lovable polar bears falling out of the sky because of global warming caused by people flying around in airplanes. (Or whatever the intent was.)

Now, it seems, noted Australian global warmingista Clive Hamilton has posted a letter to children “about your father”. It is a shameless scare tactic, even worse than the commercials above. I guess it stung him when Australians got some sense and shelved their cap and tax plan. The letter starts:

Hi there,

There’s something you need to know about your father.

Your dad’s job is to try to stop the government making laws to reduce Australia’s carbon pollution. He is paid a lot of money to do that by big companies who do not want to own up to the fact that their pollution is changing the world’s climate in very harmful ways.

Really? How about someone showing us the evidence, not computer models that have been shown to be faulty? And, as far as money is concerned, how many tens, or even hundreds of billions of dollars, have been handed out to the government supported “climate scientists” of the world? They have received far more from the public trough than the “skeptics” have received from the coffers of public and private corporations.

He continues:

Because of their pollution, lots of people, mostly poor people, are likely to die. They will die from floods, from diseases like dengue fever, and from starvation when their crops won’t grow anymore.

Well, actually, plants generally thrive in warm climates. And, gardeners pump CO2 into their greenhouses to enhance plant growth. In times gone by, during the medieval warming period for example, grapes grew in England, and people thrived in Greenland.  (Because Greenland was green, then.) At least he did not mention malaria, the spread of which has absolutely nothing to do with global warming, or temperatures, for that matter. In fact, it was all but eradicated by DDT. But then, the environmental wackos got DDT banned, saving some animals (maybe) but causing the deaths of tens of millions of human beings.

Later, he states:

Your life is going to be worse too because of what your dad is doing when he goes to work each morning. By the time you are as old as your parents, Australia will be having a lot more heat waves, like the one in Melbourne earlier this year, and there will be more bush fires too.

This is simply hyperbole without evidence. Again, it was warmer in the past, and people learned to adapt and “live with it”. (Although I personally think that a global cooling is more likely in the next 20 to 30 years, but that is beside the point, here.)

Later, he tells the kids not to hate their parents; they just don’t know any better.

So your dad is not really a bad person. He is not deliberately making the world a worse place for you and all the other kids. But he is telling lies to himself so he does not have to face up to the truth about what he does at work.

The thing is, though, that what your dad is doing is wrecking the future for my children too, and that makes me feel upset. Many Australians feel the same way; they think that what your father does is just plain wrong, and that he should stop

Talk about wrecking the future for the children! How about the $552 TRILLION dollars that cap and tax will cost the world, according to the UN itself, in the next century? If that does not ruin their future, I don’t know what will.

Near the end of the letter is the real kicker, where he says the child should “sit their father down” and tell him to get a different job!

I am sure it’s hard for you to hear these words, but there is something you can do to help. Why not sit your dad down and have a good talk to him. Tell him you want him to stop helping the big companies that are spoiling the future for you and all the other kids at school. Tell him that the family would rather have less money if he had a different job, one you could be proud of.

Read the whole thing. It is the most shameful piece of baloney that I have ever read.
