The Environmental Protection Agency, a Federal agency that receives its money from tax payers, is creating a youth group to disseminate false information about climate change. Despite nearly 40% of Americans disagreeing with climate change theories, the government has decided which scientists are right or wrong for us.
“Today, young people are leading the charge for climate action, spreading knowledge and finding solutions to propel our nation toward a climate resilient future,” Mustafa Santiago Ali, senior advisor on environmental justice, said in the EPA’s newest youtube video.
By employing youths to spread the message of climate change, the EPA is dismissing millions of Americans who have legitimate disagreements with current climate change research. The agency is also overreaching into propaganda territory.
“From heat-related illnesses and death to more extreme droughts, more severe storms and the cost of rebuilding after disasters, climate change is already affecting environmental justice communities,” Ali said in the video. “EPA’s taking major steps forward on climate action, but we also need to draw on the perspectives and ideas of our nation’s young leaders.”
If what Ali said had scientific back, he might have a point. There are simply no scientific findings correlating droughts and severe storms to climate change or pollution, so why is a government agency presenting such a thing as a fact? According to the American Lung Association, US air quality is at a ten year high.
“We’re making real and steady progress in cutting dangerous pollution from the air we breathe,” said Charles Connor, American Lung Association president and CEO.
If history is any predictor, the Democrats will likely start considering the American Lung Association a far right think thank after that study.
A government propaganda agency will now travel the country to inform people that their pick-up truck is causing typhoons and earthquakes. We have now entered the land of make believe, paid for with your tax dollars.
