Teaching kids to hate mom and dad: "the atmosphere is frying… and we're kinda blaming you"

Guest post by Alec Rawls

Is this video below child abuse? Instead of children exploding or polar bears falling like victims of 9/11, this time it is spectral children hating on mom and dad from a supposedly desolate future. Such childish doggerel can only be the product of earnest adults:

We haven’t killed all the polar bears

But it’s not for lack of trying

Big Bird is sacked

The Earth is cracked

And the atmosphere is frying

Apparently it is an anti-Romney ad, listing destruction of the planet by global warming as just one item in a laundry-list of petty demagogic cliches. Was this paid for by Obama?

Full “lyrics” here. Nice propaganda to put in the mouths of the innocent.

Hurry up and unplug our existing coal-generation electricity infrastructure, for the children, to keep them cold at night.

“Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket,” for the children (Obama 2008), so they won’t have too much light.

Hurry up and quadruple gasoline prices, for the children:

“Somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe.”

—Obama’s Energy Secretary in-waiting Stephen Chu in December 2008 when U.S. gas prices were below $2/gal and European gas prices were $8/gal.

And don’t forget that killing debt, for the children, the gift that keeps on taking.

Some kids will have good reason to blame mom and dad if they find the future impoverished (and cold instead of hot), like those kids in the video, who were undoubtedly put up to it by their own eco-leftist parents.

I’m going to get sick!!! Feels like 1984 ;-(
Mom and Dad we’re blaming you… and your kill will put you in jail!


“They foreclosed your place
To build a weapon in space”
This jumped out at me, mainly because its my interest area, its not legal to have weapons in space, by International accord. It would never happen.
Pretty disgusting the whole song.

Darren Potter

Child molesting via brain washing.

Whom is this convincing to vote for Obama? Anyone who might possibly still be undecided would find it wholly repugnant, I’d think.

David Ball

On par with “The Lorax”.


I wonder how these kids would feel about being child soldiers….
Obama doesn’t seem to have a problem with child soldiers, but we won’t talk about that, will we?


Where did you find this shite.
It is not worth the wasted bandwidth.
And that is all it was.
You want to go political ?, just say the word.

This is standard Green/Left guilt-based agitprop, and nothing new.
Try reading Clive Hamilton’s (ABC Australia) truly nauseating open letter from 2009, which began:
“Hi there,
“There’s something you need to know about your father.
“Your dad’s job is to try to stop the government making laws to reduce Australia’s carbon pollution. He is paid a lot of money to do that by big companies who do not want to own up to the fact that their pollution is changing the world’s climate in very harmful ways…”
… more boak-inducing nonsense snipped….
Barf bags at the ready, the full bucket of ordure is available at http://www.abc.net.au/unleashed/28372.html


But there’s more than one of these….
…then of course there’s the video with the juxtaposition of the Hitler Youth…. very creepy indeed..

Off topic to climate? If his camp is willing to do this to innocent children, then they’ll use any tool.

Most telling: comments closed for this video @ YouTube.
While they’re at it how about a message from kids from the past telling us all about how great it is living without modern evil conveniences.

Interesting to note that few darker skinned people exist in their Green future.
Their vision of what comprises Humanity is just as fecked up as their concept of The Planet!

I must say a pretty unprepossessing looking lot. And as agitprop a dismal failure. Whoever it was conjured that one needs to go and learn some basics.

Remember when Al Gore did this?
From a secretly taped talk to kids from Al Gore: “There are some things about our world that you know that older people don’t know”.


Read ‘Childhood’s End’, by Arthur C. Clarke, then read Robin Eubanks blog invisibleserfscollar.com


I’ve been reliably informed that these are lizard children.
H/t Internet Conspiracy Theories.


Geeezzzz is this attribution of co2 emissions a joke or what? Have a look at the EIA projections until 2035 showing OECD emissions increasing by 6% but non-OECD (China, India etc) emissions increasing by 73%.
http://www.eia.gov/forecasts/ieo/emissions.cfm What is it that these clueless numbskulls don’t understand about reading simple graphs and understanding simple maths?
The USA is heading back to 1990 levels and the rest of the OECD is not much more than flatlining.
Meanwhile China, India etc emissions of co2 are soaring.


one day these children will redirect their song to the architects & engineers of CAGW:
27 Oct: UK Telegraph: Claire Duffin: Street lights turned off in their thousands to meet carbon emission targets
Huge swathes of Britain are being plunged into darkness as more and more streetlights are switched off by councils and roads authorities.
They are making the move despite concerns from safety campaigners and the police that it would lead to an increase in road accidents and crime.
The full extent of the blackout can be disclosed following an investigation by The Sunday Telegraph – which comes on the day that clocks moved back an hour, making it dark earlier in the evening – and found that:
3,080 miles of motorways and trunk roads in England are now completely unlit;
a further 47 miles of motorway now have no lights between midnight and 5am, including one of Britain’s busiest stretches of the M1, between Luton and Milton Keynes;
out of 134 councils which responded to a survey, 73% said they had switched off or dimmed some lights or were planning to;
all of England’s 27 county councils have turned off or dimmed street lamps in their areas…
Local authorities say the moves helps reduce energy bills, at a time when energy prices are continuing to rise…
However some councils admit they may not see savings for another four or five years because of the cost of installing new lights, dimmer switches and complex control systems.
And some councils – as well as the Highways Agency, responsible for motorways and major A roads – say that the lights are being turned off to meet “green” targets to cut carbon emissions, by reducing electricity use…
if you have children evangelising about CAGW, due to brainwashing at school, etc., agree with them and say u r taking action immediately – take away their x-boxes, iPhones, tablets, laptops etc., cos they are responsible for adding to the “carbon” emissions.
they will soon change their tune.

More revenge of the watermelons. We are not communists these clowns keep insisting, as they propangadise children, suggest reruns of the great leap forward, i.e. rat out your deviant parents.And proclaim all who doubt the wisdom of their ways as crazy.Their ways are always for the collective good, power to the correct people for the good of the people.This kind of filth and propaganda makes me think Ellesmere Island in the Canadian Arctic would be the perfect location for the retribution camps.Forget reeducation.Forget providing any infrastructure we have already wasted too much wealth on these clowns.The polar bears are already onsite and the camera platforms will be available via US govt surplus about the time their trials are done.
Sick I know but a man can dream of proportional justice.


Those poor kids.
I wonder if they understand that they’re not only “holding the bag” but they’re damn sure gonna hafta’ pay the tab.
We’re crushing our kids w/ debt.

I think a video of children singing, lambasting adults for using them like propaganda machines, should be made, Hollywood style.


Civil war or intergenerational war is what the eco-totalitarians are simmering.


Leave the children out of it.
They have not lead us into this …..quandary.
Nor will they lead us out.


It is truly sad that the adults behind this video hide behind the children. They should be ashamed of themselves for stooping so low. But I am sure the adults are very proud of their debasement of their own children. Sad indeed.

Reminds of the Soviet child hero, so-called, Pavlik Morozov who was promoted as a model for all Soviet children to emulate for ratting out his parents:


49 likes, 940 dislikes. It’s not going over well.


Deja vu……all over again…..
Sickening and depressing beyond words.


This is the same tactic used by the Soviet to murder 35 million people. Students turn their parents into the teacher who relays the information to the commissar. Next morning mommy and daddy are gone.


The thing is, it will be about 8 years and those kids will also be driving, flying, buying consumer goods, switching on air-conditioners and heaters etc independently of Mom and Dad. I didn’t watch the video I must admit, but I’m prepared to bet these kids were performing in it one minute and nagging mom and dad for the latest gadget the next – just like kids anywhere, given half a chance. Kids don’t stress about contradictions – it’s part of what we refer to as their innocence.
My own son was a child just a few years ago, but now he out-flies, out-drives and out-consumes me by a frightening margin. So who exactly are “the children”? I think “for the children” is at best meaningless (the children won’t be children anymore when the supposed benefits kick in), and at worst a piece of cheap propagandistic emotional manipulation.

Que ?

I want to know where the switch is that will turn the thinking back on in these children, because looking into their eyes it had been switched off by their parents/guardians and teachers.


OK I have watched it and as a child-lover I’m shocked to say it made me thoroughly dislike those insufferably smug holier-than-thou kids who I have no doubt enjoy all the benefits of the modern world and have more than their fair share of the latest gadgets and fashions.
Give up your X-box or whatever it is you have these days and then lecture me on how you think I am deliberately killing polar bears. Sorry, I shouldn’t be so angry with the kids, just their parents and whoever put them put them up to this sanctimonious and offensive nonsense.


Who is it that calls them “skulls full of mush”? I see now they are right, and I’ve no problem identifying the source of that mush. We need to overhaul the education system in the US – the last overhaul went off the wrong direction. Can you imagine how embarrassing it is going to be for those kids with they reach the age of reason and discover they were used like toilet paper.


Well the dislikes have gone over 1000 now. But take heart who ever funded this in an attempt to boost Obama’s popularity, as against Mitt Romney, hasn’t done the President any favor really.


Pat complains of: “Street lights turned off in their thousands to meet carbon emission targets…”
Most street lighting is grossly excessive, and most street fixtures put much of their light straight into the sky without illuminating the roadway below. Worse, many fixtures shine into the eyes of drivers and pedestrians, interfering with their ability to ‘dark adapt’ enough to see at all.
Carbon is not a good reason to cut down on the waste, but that doesn’t mean we should waste energy in the first place.

Here are some comments on you tube before Obama disabled the comment feature:
What a sick piece of crap.

These kids will develop into very angry adolescents when they realize they were duped and the embarrassment kicks in.

Here’re the lyrics, shown with the “Show More” button”

Imagine an America
Where strip mines are fun and free
Where gays can be fixed
And sick people just die
And oil fills the sea
We don’t have to pay for freeways!
Our schools are good enough
Give us endless wars
On foreign shores
And lots of Chinese stuff
We’re the children of the future
American through and through
But something happened to our country
And we’re kinda blaming you
We haven’t killed all the polar bears
But it’s not for lack of trying
Big Bird is sacked
The Earth is cracked
And the atmosphere is frying
Congress went home early
They did their best we know
You can’t cut spending
With elections pending
Unless it’s welfare dough
We’re the children of the future
American through and through
But something happened to our country
And we’re kinda blaming you
Find a park that is still open
And take a breath of poison air
They foreclosed your place
To build a weapon in space
But you can write off your au pair
It’s a little awkward to tell you
But you left us holding the bag
When we look around
The place is all dumbed down
And the long term’s kind of a drag
We’re the children of the future
American through and through
But something happened to our country
And yeah, we’re blaming you
You did your best
You failed the test
Mom and Dad
We’re blaming you!


Street light turn offs. You are lucky you have street lights, in our 20,000 population city in Northern NSW, we have a few lights in the streets outside the CBD. Non on the highways outside the city. One time a few years ago, after complaints of few street lights, some champions actually went out with a light meter of some kind, and few street even registered any light at all.


I think this is a case of child exploitation and brain washing.

“Sickening and depressing beyond words.”
Agenda 21, and that’s the 1st thing you should really know, and not be told you can’t research the topic, is Nazism in disguise.
Agenda 21 For Dummies

As a parent – this just is just sick; what sort of mental state must the parents be in to justify having their kids used in such a way? They do not want to be there, this has been forced upon them.. somebody call social services..

Huge swathes of Britain are being plunged into darkness as more and more streetlights are switched off by councils and roads authorities.

Over the last couple of years, in the UK, the long term declining trend in vehicle deaths and serious injury has stopped and may even have reversed, particularly for cyclists.
I couldn’t find any data on drownings, but during WWII when all streetlights were turned off, drownings rose sharply as people fell into rivers, canals and lakes in the dark.

And in 2012, in the UK, pedestrian deaths in vehicle accidents rose 12%.
More evidence of how Warmists are killing people.

Dodgy Geezer

Two points.
1 – Julian Simon addressed all these issues, and more, a long time ago, with his Cornucopia Theory. Google it. It has the merit of being based on meticulously researched fact…….
2 – Why should the ‘Children of the Future’ ™ have all the fun? I offer a challenge to all the doggerel poets who haunt WUWT. Can you write a better set of lyrics which WE could sing to OUR fathers? Perhaps complaining that not enough was done to stop protesters destroying our civilisation….

I know the ‘N’ word, (no, the ‘other’ ‘N’ word!), is frowned upon but the suffocating similarity is just too hard to ignore. Subverting/brainwashing an entire generation was one of the most FUNDAMENTAL requirements for ‘success’. Do not trust your parents, they are lying to you. Your parents are the reason things are bad and you must reject them for the common good. ETC.


We haven’t killed all the polar bears
But it’s not for lack of trying

Nature tried a few thousand years ago and failed. It swept the Arctic free of ice and the hardened polar bears survived.
Imagine at the very start of grid electrification an agency produced a report that co2 would lead to us frying. As a result governments around the world abandoned the use of electricity. Would the following generations be pleased that their grandparents reduced them to be still using candles and paraffin?
Fossil fuels have contributed greatly to the shift of humanity out of darkness, disease and misery. It has lifted our standards of living to the highest levels evahhhhh.
