Laurie David: Blaming kids for global warming


WorldNetDaily – October 12, 2007

I don’t have a lot of good things to say about Laurie David. I have complained about her before on this site (see here). Her children’s book is full of non-truths and she is the producer of “An Inconvenient Truth” which is also filled with non-truths.

Evidently, Ms. Fretwell is also upset by the non-truths in Ms. David’s book and took a different tact from mine. She wrote a child’s book on the subject! I haven’t had the opportunity to read this book yet but I wanted to point it out to my readers that still have an open mind on this subject. Ms. Fretwell appears to want to give facts to our children rather than the propaganda that Mr. Gore and Ms. David profess.

“The Down-to-Earth-Guide to Global Warming,” a new book for kids co-authored by Laurie David, producer of the Al Gore movie “An Inconvenient Truth,” tells this story in all its cartoon glory. On first glance the book is beautiful. It is full of color and kid appeal. The problem is the book is also cartoonish in the way it plays with reality. Big errors are glossed over as fact.

Making matters far worse, David has mislabeled the points on her graph. Oops! She points out that atmospheric CO2 levels tend to increase before temperature changes. This is correct, according to her diagram. But once you realize that her labels are reversed her hypothesis is defunct.

This is flat-out indoctrination, an effort to scare kids into believing the sky is falling so they fall in line to do what mega-rich movie stars and politicians tell them.

There is more information available in the world today than ever before, and it’s hard to know what to believe. Kids need to think critically in order to get the facts straight. Presenting them with beautifully packaged information proven to be false, as Laurie David has, is not elevating the debate about global warming and yes, there is one. But don’t take it from me. Find out for yourself.

Order Fretwell’s new book, “The Sky’s Not Falling!” at WND’s online store.
