I covered this BBC video last week. One of the claims made by some of the children is that they are actually living through a changing climate, rather than the whole thing being just some theory that it might have been in the past.
But if they were not told everyday that the climate is changing would they even be aware of it?
Let’s look, for instance, at how the climate has changed in England since 2001:
Clearly nothing has changed in terms of temperature or rainfall.
Arctic sea ice? This has been stable since 2007:
Sea levels have barely risen since 2001:
Meanwhile seas have been rising and glaciers melting slowly since the 19thC, the time of these kids’ great great great great great grandparents. I don’t suppose any of those ancestors worried about it!
There are no trends in hurricane frequency:
And, by the way, those polar bears are doing fine!
It’s time that schools taught children the facts about climate change, instead of filling their heads with scaremongering propaganda.
