Left-Wing Media Furious Cartoons Aren’t Indoctrinating 5-Year-Olds About Global Warming

A parental advice columnist for left-leaning news site Slate argues that cartoons are “ignoring” global warming.

“After a few more questions, I discovered that he’s never heard any of his favorite science shows mention climate change or global warming,” Melinda Wenner Moyer, a science writer and parental advice columnist for Slate, wrote in an article.

“Which is strange, because according to overwhelming scientific consensus, climate change is one of the most important environmental issues of our time,” she wrote. “My son can tell you everything you ever wanted to know about red pandas, except for the fact that their very existence is being threatened by the changing climate.”

Moyer asked Nickelodeon for examples of its programming that covered global warming, and the network sent her six examples of shows that talked about related subjects, like wind and solar power or littering.

The Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) said they focus on teaching “foundational science concepts,” and further, determine programming based on the “the most age-appropriate way to serve our audience” and do not often cover global warming, consequently .

Moyer refers to one example in her child’s favorite cartoons discussing global warming. In that program, Professor Hootsburg claims that as “the Earth gets warmer and warmer, big storms get bigger and bigger.”

Moyer, however, ignores the many kids shows dealing environmental issues, including Captain Planet, the Octonauts and the Smoggies.

    Like the Nazis, the warming alarmists know if the agenda isn’t supported by facts, it is important to indoctrinate kids early. The Nazis put effort into this. Such action included bringing the Jew boy for the class to observe and find all sorts of imaginary signs of inferiority.

    In observing the world the alarmist are doing the same thing. They are imagining all sorts of ill effects from climate change.

    Brainwashing children angers me. Years ago adults fed kids superstition. Sooner or later they realize it’s a lie. Pushing climate change is really leftist indoctrination.

    The constitution says nothing about education.
    Yet, it’s a cabinet level position at the federal level.

    Now let’s see………….
    Why would they want to control education ?

    It’s in the COMMUNIST MANIFESTO !!!!!

    I live in Northcentral Wisconsin where glaciers retreated from my own back yard just 11,000 years ago – a mere blink of an eye in geologic time. Has the climate changed? absolutely! Was this epic shift due to man-made influences? I don’t think so…

    Is this natural history being taught in our schools and youth-focused media? Not so much. Emotional, politically inspired story telling is so much easier.

        Jaypee… (insert facepalm emoji here)
        A “shill” is a planted person who secretly carries out the will of another. (I’m not sure you know this BTW.) Again, look at my posts, including the one above. If you detect leftism secretly hiding in these words you need medication! Are you worried that I state that climates constantly change – naturally? Again, I just don’t get it.

        My only possible explanation for your strange behavior is that your own screen name has been hijacked by another.
