Quotational Therapy: Part 129 -- British Kids, On What Would Make Life Better.
The British Political Establishment Is Freaking Kids Out With This Global Warming Hysteria-
You may have seen the bogus UN report noting that children in the US and UK have it so much worse than in Sweden and the Netherlands.
Well, it's bogus and hardly worth going into.
The BBC took it seriously, though, and asked British kids what would make their lives better.
Some of their answers:
No global warming and more kindness to animals! -Lilly, 8, Sheffield
My life would be a lot better if global warming wasn't a problem, it is really worrying to know that we could be in danger. -Lucy, 13, Birmingham
I would like life better if we didn't have the threat of global warming and for people to be much nicer!!! -Olivia, 9, Canterbury
It would make my life better if we didn't have to think about wars - and poverty - around the world, day in, day out. Global warming is also an issue - it's involved in everyone's lives. -Hayley, 10, Bristol
I'd like to think that global warming was not a problem - I'm worried that something will happen like in the movie "The Day after Tomorrow". -Jessica, 13, Surrey
Not having to worry about the environment so much because it is worrying me as you can see it in the papers, news and literally everywhere you go!!! It's making me and my friends go mad about what's happening to our planet. -Leanne, 12, Clacton-On-Sea
I don't feel safe about global warming so I think people should start helping. I also don't like groups of people hanging around on streets. -Isaac, 8, Leeds
What on earth? The British media-political-industrial complex needs to get a hold of itself. There is really no good reason for so many children to be so upset over this issue.
The screeching about global warming from certain corners of the world has become full-blown unthinking hysteria. In many countries, there is no room for dissent on the issue, regardless of party or ideology. In this country, meanwhile, the issue is far too politicized and polarized to even have a reasonable discussion about it.
The right quote can be therapeutic, so tune in to WILLisms.com for quotational therapy on Monday and Friday.

Wow! That is sad. I remember the ice age era and being little. I actually thought we would be frozen to death...

50% income tax in the UK... What can you expect? One third of households in the UK are on public assistance??? Global warming, another ice age, whatever is popular at the moment is how children will be raised if government can get more taxes from the people. At least that is the way it looks to me...

This corruption of young minds is nothing more than blatant propaganda. They are obviously not teaching The Truth.
