The Department of Energy and Climate Change, a UK governmental agency created in 2008 to save the planet from the scourge of human habitation, believes that part of its mission is to dish out a daily dose of indoctrination to all the good little UK kiddies. As part of a national media blitz last year, the agency plastered newspapers and other outlets with posters and advertisements using bastardized versions of various Mother Goose themes.
The Rub-a-Dub-Dub poster proclaims: “Climate change is happening. Temperature and sea levels are rising. Extreme weather events such as storms, floods and heat waves will become more frequent and intense. If we carry on at this rate, life in 25 years could be very different.”
The UK citizenry, god bless them, have lodged approximately 1,000 complaints over the posters. And finally, the UK Advertising Standards Authority ruled that the ads ‘made exaggerated claims about the threat to Britain from global warming.’
I must say that using Mother Goose in such a fanatically tomfoolery fashion only highlights how silly and nonsensical the climate claptrap crowd has become. Or as Mother Goose herself, the Grand Dame of Grisly Truth Telling, would have said:
Sing a song of nonsense, a science full of lies,
Floods and quakes and hurricanes and all those rising tides.
But when the facts were all laid out, the pundits brayed like asses.
Now wasn’t that a foolish fraud to foist upon the masses.
