Climate change extremists peddling fear, our kids are buying

Empower Wisconsin | Sept. 18, 2019

Madison — When you sell fear, you’ll always find a buyer.

And the Climate change alarmists certainly have found more buyers than a two-bit lottery.

A recent Washington Post-Kaiser Family Foundation poll finds “most American teens are frighted by climate change.”

Why shouldn’t they be afraid. The left-wing climate change agenda (the artist formerly known as Global Warming) has put the fear of fear in them for the past two decades. And anyone who doesn’t religiously believe in the narrative — which is great for progressive politics but hell on the truth — is a “denier,” to be scorned, ostracized, and worse.

That’s how our children have grown up — with 12 years to live, according to the Green Team queen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The fact that AOC has become the de facto voice of climate science should tell you the trouble we all are in.

But it’s mission nearly accomplished for the calculating left. The poll found a “solid majority” of American teenagers are convinced human beings are causing all of the Earth’s woes and that climate change will harm them personally.

Fear is the message, and fear brings people to the polls. On that count, climate change alarmists are looking to secure their power base in the elections ahead.

It matters little that so many dire predictions about the Earth’s imminent demise never panned out. See the Competitive Enterprise Institute’s compilation of doomsday predictions that flopped.

Repeatedly, the climate change agenda has been driven by faulty science and stymied by inconvenient facts. But for the left and its political servants, facts don’t matter. Fear is what they’re selling.
