During a 1980 candidate debate with Governor Ronald Reagan, President Jimmy Carter cited his 13-year-old daughter Amy’s judgment that “the control of nuclear arms” was the most important election issue. Audience members chortled.
Some 21st-century liberals have picked up the precedent set by one of the 20th century’s worst presidents.
KidsCom.Com is asking children for their solutions to “climate change”, according to a news release, which points out, “[I]t was kids who invented common products such as the television, earmuffs and the Popsicle.”
The charming naivete of children shines in their grandiose environmentalist suggestions:
“I would think up a chemical reaction that could happen between CO2 and another element that would reduce the CO2 element.”
“There’s something that can separate artificial colors and flavors from water, so there has to be some way to separate greenhouse gases from the atmosphere.”
A “super-CO2-magnet … could take all of the CO2 out of the air.”
It might be good P.R., but do environmentalists really believe that children can find a way to control the climate? Or are they simply adding flattery to indoctrination in their repertoire of tools to seduce young minds?
