Poll:One in Three Children Fear Earth Apocalypse

The Tree Huggers should be proud about the continuing destruction of childhood.

I teach 7th grade language arts in a middle school. I have running joke I use if a student needs more paper. No worries I say, I can cut a tree down and make more paper. I'm always amazed at some student's reaction. It's like they think the world is will end.


Please tell me where we are right instilling fear in young children with this constant bombardment of enviromental propaganda?

Are they wrong?

Will the earth be the same for them as it is for us when they are in their 50's?

Do you believe if we just keep keeping on with the status quo that the planet will never be effected?

There are some churches that preach Armageddon. That's instilling fear into children.

Isn't that the same as preaching an environmental apocalypse?

No, not at all.

Please don't put them on the same footing.

Yes, but that's to be expected of children. It's the adults that believe this that worry me.

Why does it have to be one or the other all the time? "Moderately concerned" is not an option?

Because claiming your opponents are all paranoid and hysterical is a time-honored way of discrediting them.

I had to watch someone give a presentation, ten minutes long, saying that global warming was a made up scam. The next day I got an opportunity, in front of the class, to ask him direct questions about his presentation. In five minutes I was able to get him to admit that he had no idea what he was talking about.

I have a feeling I'd be able to do the same in person for a lot of people on this board.

Um, no...

I meant will the planet as it is today be the same 50 years from now if we do nothing?

I noticed you didn't answer the third question. Like a true conservative.
