My latest article at MercatorNet looks at the phenomenon of fearful and angry children and young people taking part in climate change protests:
When it comes to the climate change indoctrination of children, it’s hard to fault the ideals that often go along with it. Children and adults who care about the environment, care about human life, and care about future generations are laudable.
But not so much the negative messaging that often accompanies climate change activism…
When it comes to children we should err on the side of happiness and hope and trust, because they are self-evidently what we all desire. Besides, nobody functions well mired in anxiety, fear, panic and despair. The activist notion that we need to “get angry” is a self-defeating message, and runs counter to the best examples of social change in our history.
