HBO Recruits Kids to Promote Climate Change Alarmism

Feature films (“The Day After Tomorrow,” “Snowpiercer,” “Happy Feet 2,” “Promised Land”). Documentaries (“The 11th Hour,” “Years of Living Dangerously,” “Chasing Ice,” “The Age of Stupid,” “Greedy Lying Bastards,” “An Inconvenient Truth”). Activism (The People’s Climate March).

Now, a group of celebrities is teaming up with HBO to recruit children to promote climate change alarmism. HBO and the American Museum of Natural History will bring “Saving My Tomorrow” to the pay channel Dec. 15.

Among the stars lending their talents to the project include Tina Fey, Ziggy Marley, Susan Sarandon, Liam Neeson, Pete Seeger, Jason Mraz and Willie Nelson.

The project’s press release features an eight-year-old girl to be featured on the program.

Earth is our home. We only have one and if we mess this up… where do we go next? We don’t have another earth right next to us, just in case we lose this one.

Global warming has been on pause for roughly 15 years, and many of the dire predictions made by climate change scientists have failed to occur.

“Saving My Tomorrow” will continue as a four-part series beginning on Earth Day, April 22, 2015.

  1. You’ve brought up two issues that I’ve struggled with for over decades:

    1. How engaged do you get children in political issues in general, environmental issues specifically? When I was a park ranger, this was a heated debate. Children aren’t locked into entrenched positions and therefore are open to new knowledge, new thoughts and are impressionable. It’s that impressionable part you have to care for. I think anytime you see a child with strong opinions, even if you happen to agree, it seems like they’ve lost their childhood. Children shouldn’t be Pro/Against anything accept ice cream and broccoli. Not saying children should be “seen and not heard” but rather that we treat the process of maturation with respect. My position back then, and it still stands today, is that it’s okay to teach children science. Not conclusions, but the scientific method. Increase their scientific literacy. You raise a child’s scientific ability and they’ll come to their own conclusions. My favorite saying these days… “If all we have are opinions, then let’s go with mine. If we have data, let’s look at the data.”

    2. Global Warming and modeling. As a science major I was introduced to Global Warming back in 1996. Scientists have understood the mechanisms of greenhouse gases for decades now. I ask climate change skeptics: a. Do you believe that scientists have misunderstood the fundamental properties of greenhouse gases? b. Do you believe that scientists have overestimated the amount of greenhouse gases we’re putting into the environment? c. Do you believe they’ve overstated the impacts of putting greenhouse gases into the environment? I think most reasonable people are at a clear “No” on the first two, but it’s the third question that gets everyone into trouble. Climate modeling was weak back in the early 90’s, and while it’s gotten better, it’s still trying to model an incredibly complex system. That grey area has opened the door for politics and has entrenched people into positions when at best you can say… We know we’re putting a lot of greenhouse gases into the environment; we’re not exactly sure of the outcomes, but all the data is pointing towards — not good.
