Short and to the point!
Whatever we may think in general about the BBC’s absurdly skewed coverage of all matters relating to energy and climate change, there has been something peculiarly distasteful about its relentless promotion of the “school strikes” and the “children’s crusade” against global warming.
From endless sound-bite interviews, it was clear that the children knew virtually nothing about either the science or politics of climate change. Their faces may be contorted with self-righteous anger, but their heads are merely stuffed with a few little “the end of the world is nigh” slogans, presumably fed to them by the same teachers who urged them to go on these marches where youngsters chanted obscenities against Theresa May, and the Communist hammer-and-sickle flag fluttered above the crowd.

Oddest of all has been their central battle cry that it is time for our politicians to wake up to the reality of the global “climate emergency” and to “start taking action”. They seem oblivious to the fact that, under the Climate Change Act, our Government boasts it is “leading the world” in eliminating reliance on fossil fuels, and that subsidies for the intermittent “renewable energy” sources intended to replace them will be equivalent over the next five years to £2,500 for every household in the land.
By the time most of these children have grown up – as cooking or heating with gas, or buying anything but electric cars, dependent on those same intermittent “renewables”, are being phased out – they can expect major power blackouts to be a regular feature of their daily lives.
The main reason, lost in their bubble of babyish groupthink, that they and their teachers are not aware of any of this is that it has never been explained to them by the BBC.
