The authorities in Scotland are encouraging kids to take the day off school to attend the next round of protests with at least four councils, all SNP ones, allowing for an “authorised absence”


Councils give pupils Friday off to join climate change protests

TheTimes said:
There do not appear to be any arrangements to ensure that children attend the protests and do not simply use them as an excuse for a free day.
this is what happens when you have to get in bed with the greens to ensure control of the scottish parliament. one of the councils happens to be mine and the local mp lives across the road from my father. handy that, i should be able to have a bit of fun with this.

maybe local councillors should be doing what they are paid to do instead of virtue signalling . in my area they certainly have many immediate issues that need addressed.pupils taking the day off school might not make much difference considering the chronic under staffing in many scottish schools.

Translate for yourselves, here's a summary.

There's more to the Thunberg (striking student) phenomenon than meets the eye.

16-year-old Swede Greta Thunberg is now regarded by much of the media as a “figurehead of the climate protection movement”. The student gained worldwide fame through her appearance at the UN Climate Change Conference in Katowice, Poland. Most recently, she appeared at the World Economic Summit in Davos.

Their (striking students') success is largely down to the Swedish PR expert Ingmar Rentzhog, who has good contacts in several propaganda organizations.

There's a fair bit of coverage at the mo and outside alarmist green advocacy blogs not much is on the kids' side.

This is the Wall street Journal.

On Climate, the Kids Are All Wrong
And a band of ignorant brats shall lead them: Some things have hardly changed since 1212

It's all a government distraction technique from the impending social crisis that the baby-boomers have left us with.

It's like baby boomers are trying to distract from the fact that everything is their fault; housing crisis, populist politics, rise in cost of Freddos and environmental mismanagement.

But they're focusing on the one thing that they can claim is everyone else's fault.

If tomorrow is anything like today I suspect that some protests might be cancelled due to bad weather.

Being shell-shocked, he might not see the yoke...

Kids have been indoctrinated in climate doomsday nonsense since kindergarten

Children Climate Strike Inspired By Green Indoctrination

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-03-14/politically...

Snips from the Link said:
Students striking over climate change inaction have been described as victims of "politically correct teaching" and include some who are "barely literate or numerate".

Dr Kevin Donnelly, a conservative commentator and senior research fellow at the Australian Catholic University, claimed the movement was the product of "biased" academics and failings in education.

"We're going backwards in international testing in terms of maths, science and English, and I really suggest they should be putting the effort into raising standards rather than stunts like this."
Attending lessons...there's a thought, if only a greater numjber of independent critical thinking sessions were available.

I’ve just taken this photo in Birmingham city centre where there are hundreds of kids and a few lefty teachers shouting into megaphones. Lots of socialist related banners...

Edit- the picture has come out horizontal. Banner says ‘Socialist change not climate change’

I think this is nothing more than truancy.

I'd like to think the local authorities would fine the parent of every child not in 'skool' today biggrin

I see it the opposite. I just ended up in the throng outside the Department for Business in Westminster and think the whole thing is great. Young people not being sheep and just copying their parents way of thinking. And inspired by a 15/16 year old girl. Fab.

Was their first lesson hypocrisy?

This morning, I cycled past the usual hoards of stationary, over-sized, emission-cheating, 4x4s loaded with mums queuing to discharge their offspring outside the school gate.

Air pollution is always someone else’s problem to solve. it is, of course, the man in the mirror that needs to change.

Seems very sheep-like to me, it's all well and good holding a banner demanding something must be done, but how many of them are prepared to drastically alter their own life style? If we proposed a ban on mobile phones or tablets because of the environmental impact of their construction, how many would be in favour?

You also don't have to look far to see that for most it's not about saving the planet, but the usual bunch of hard-left agitators wanting to bash the tories, as evidenced by the picture a few posts up, or stuff like this.
