Johnny Ball - Politicised Science - Brainwashing our Young
Politicised Science - Brainwashing our Young
‘Climate change’ propaganda is turning kids into militant save-the-earth pests at home. The eco-epistles relate the usual heart-tugging climate scare stories (polar bears are dying, ice caps are melting), conveniently failing to mention that the Earth has warmed - and cooled – naturally for billions of years. CO2 is a life-giving atmospheric gas. There is no room for the light of truth in this evangelism … and kids are easy targets.
Johnny Ball became a well-known television personality via Play School (BBC, 1964-88) but also wrote gags for shows like Crackerjack (BBC, 1955-84). His often eccentric, clowning presenting style belied the keen intelligence that also scripted fifteen award-winning Think series from 1977 to 1987, including Think of a Number (BBC, 1977-84).
Filmed at The Alternative View 4 Event in London - March 2010
