Scare the Hell out of the Kids

Oregroanian March 22, 2007 page A1: An article titled, Sweating the Future, stated, “Every Generation has its fears. Before the polio vaccine, parents kept their children indoors, on hot summer days, -- no swimming pools, no picnics. Then came the Cold war and its fears of sudden annihilation. …after the 911, attacks terrorism dominated the worry agenda. But today, concern over climate change appears to be replacing the ideas of atomic Armageddon …”

First, it is necessary to correct some overstatements, as a child in the forties; we were not kept indoors, on any days. Further, you didn’t swim in pools, you swam in lakes and rivers and everybody did it. During the cold war most of the people went on with their lives, only a very few built shelters, and they were looked on as strange.

If a lesson is to be learned from all of those disastrous events, it is that none of them took place. Only a very few got polio, not nuclear Armageddon took place. All failures of a nuclear plant outside of the Soviet Union were successfully contained with very few injuries. The US has had only one terrorist attack in 6 years. Why is it that some many disasters continue to surface?

Since the time of Jesus, the end of the world has been predicted to be coming soon. It hasn’t. Why is that? First of all it is easy to convince most people that doom is near. Second fear can be used to control people. Al Gore or course has no agenda. The documentary, “the inconvenient truth” is full of half-truths designed specifically to arouse the public. During WWII, this form of communication was called propaganda and was used by all participants as an effective way of controlling them. What is amazing is that this process continues to work. Those who don’t know history are destine to make the same mistakes.

The good green folks of the past, banned nuclear power, and the building of dams and in their place constructed coal fire plants, which are responsible for most of the industrial pollution.

Is global warming happening? Maybe. Will controlling industrial pollution stop it? Probably not, because it has no single cause. Will burying your garbage in the back yard, walking to the store or scaring the hell out of your kids help. Probably not. During WWII people rolled bandages, knitted sweaters, which ended up in warehouses, did it do any good? Yes, it made the people feel like they were helping, kept them out of the way and the professionals did their job.
