Global warming concerns are keeping children awake at night



Half of young children are anxious about the effects of global warming, often losing sleep because of their concern, according to a new report today.

A survey of 1,150 youngsters aged between seven and 11 found that one in four blamed politicians for the problems of climate change.

Are you doing enough?

One in seven of those questioned by supermarket giant Somerfield said their own parents were not doing enough to improve the environment.

The most feared consequences of global warming included poor health, the possible submergence of entire countries and the welfare of animals.

Most of those polled understood the benefits of recycling, although one in 10 thought the issue was linked to riding a bike.

Pete Williams, of Somerfield, said: "Concerns over our environment dominate the media at present and kids are exposed to the hard facts as much as anybody.

"While many adults may look the other way, this study should show that global warming is not only hurting the children of the future, it's affecting the welfare of kids now.

"By raising awareness amongst today's young, hopefully we are improving our chances of reaching a solution.''

good... since we've ignored it, at least the next generation will face the problem instead of sticking their fat cheeseburger eating faces into the sand.

The gargantuan-sized egotistical narcissism of Leftists manifests itself in their blind hysteria that HUMANITY is the CENTER of the all events in the universe and that if ANYTHING bad happens on Earth, it can ONLY be because of HUMAN activity.

Case in point: Global Warming and the CO2 produced by fossil fuel combustion.

Nevermind the fact that CO2 produced by all human activity accounts for only 0.1% of the total greenhouse gas effect in the atmosphere.

Hey, if it makes the Left feel like they're responsible for everything (except their own personal actions) then I guess that gives them the false sense of omnipotent empowerment, superiority and ability to assign guilt to everyone else that they crave so much.

Now the Socialist moonbats have co-opted that whole mindfuck game and are programing the next generation quite well with manufactured fears and the idea that only more intrusive government given control over more and more of your life (at the expense of your freedoms) can save you.

When you have few REAL threats and an excess of resources to keep you distracted, it's easy to foist this shit on glazed eyed masses that think that "hardship" is not having the latest cell phone or newest car on the block.

Makes me want to go puke my guts out.

Two generations. That's all it took to get the Socialist agenda this far.

One more will do it, I think.

Yep.

The Baby-Boomer Leftists in power today look at the "Greatest Generation" and how they overcame the Great Depression, saved the world in WWII and then went on to build the greatest nation on earth and they are JEALOUS of not being able to have ANY kind of worldwide crisis that they can "save the world" from (although they are too cowardly and pacifistic to confront the REAL dangers in today's world).

And so in their massively narcissistic, egotistically self-centered and stunted-adolescent minds, they CREATE a phony "catastrophe" that only THEY can battle and save the world from.

I feel sorry for the future of the UK.

I would be afraid if this were happening anywhere else than Europe. In the rest of the world, poisoning the children's minds like this would lead to a generation able to be led into warfare against whomever their Elites turned them against, like the German youth of the 1930's...howver, the Europeans are neutered and as dangerous as a puppy. They can't and won't fight, not for anything or any reason. They're through. They are not long for this world.
