GOP chairman: Kids are ‘brainwashed’ on climate change

inhofeSen. James Inhofe says school children are being “brainwashed” into believing in climate change and that parents need to “un-brainwash” them.

Inhofe, an outspoken climate change skeptic and chairman of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, said he came to the realization when his granddaughter challenged him on his denial of the science behind global warming.

“Our kids are being brainwashed,” the Oklahoma Republican told conservative radio host Eric Metaxas on a recent appearance reported by the liberal blog Right Wing Watch.

“My own granddaughter came home one day and said … ‘Popi, why is it you don’t understand global warming?’ I did some checking, and Eric, the stuff that they teach our kids nowadays, they are brainwashed — you have to un-brainwash them when they get out,” Inhofe said.

Inhofe has made a name for himself nationally for doubting the scientific consensus that the climate is changing and human activity through greenhouse gas emissions is the principal cause.

    Having looked at the source article and reviewed some of the comments I conclude that there are a lot of folks that read only the warmest sites and “Believe” they are authoritive without seeking better data or alternative information. The reasonable rejoinders to their diatribes are passed of as foolish with much name calling and abuse. Not a place to get uplifted or gain much knowledge.

      I started out believing all the hype that we were responsible for heating the planet by altering the climate but as soon as I started to delve into the so called science – it became obvious to me that something just was not adding up.

      The more I looked over the years it became obvious it is political science with a specific agenda. I was relieved that man was not heating the planet and so I have ticked another box off that I don’t need to worry about.

      It appears to me there are many people who do not look at this in an open minded way but are convinced right from the start regardless of how much evidence is put them to the contrary. They often site the same old Gore mantra. Some are complicit in it eg funding, carbon credits and others are just useful gullible sheep.

      I also think many of the closed-minded sheeple wish for bad news or need a cause to make themselves feel guilty. AGW seems to fit nicely for them. Sad really.
