Obama Soviet Style Propaganda Machine: Spends $149,997 to Change Farmers’ ‘Skepticism’ of Man-Caused Climate Change

The Soviet Union use loud speakers to promote socialism and the common good—their version. It forced kids into indoctrination camps—not even pretending they were schools. Looks like Barack Obama is in the Stalin mode—if folks disagreed with you, you must force them to change their opinion—with their own tax dollars.

“The target of the campaign is the agricultural community, which the project characterizes as cynical of anthropogenic climate change.

“Among the agricultural and natural resource sciences for climate variability and change, education is vital as it can increase climate change knowledge and risk perception, precursors to climate change action,” the grant said. “Education is critical among the agricultural community because although climate change threatens agricultural sustainability, skepticism of anthropogenic climate change runs high.”

Obviously Obama is embarrassed that a bunch of farmers are smarter then he is and understand science better than a Harvard “educated” lawyer. This is classic totalitarian indoctrination. How about a new TV program, “Farmers Know Best”?

Study ‘leveraging the power of younger generations’ to change attitudes

BY: Elizabeth Harrington, Washington Free Beacon, 1/20/16
The U.S. Department of Agriculture is spending $150,000 in an effort to change farmers who have a “skeptical” view of human-caused global warming.

The agency issued a grant to North Carolina State University to conduct an educational campaign for high school teachers to add more climate change material to their curriculums.

The target of the campaign is the agricultural community, which the project characterizes as cynical of anthropogenic climate change.

“Among the agricultural and natural resource sciences for climate variability and change, education is vital as it can increase climate change knowledge and risk perception, precursors to climate change action,” the grant said. “Education is critical among the agricultural community because although climate change threatens agricultural sustainability, skepticism of anthropogenic climate change runs high.”

The project is seeking to change that by “leveraging the power of younger generations.”

“Reaching agricultural audiences can be challenging because worldview-driven biases can prevent agricultural professionals from engaging in adaptation or mitigation efforts,” the grant said. “Providing worldview-compatible climate curricula to K-12 agricultural classrooms may be a key strategy. Agriculture teachers have considerable influence over future agricultural and natural resource professionals, and adolescents may be less susceptible to worldview-driven biases.”

The study will recruit at least 40 high school teachers who will “integrate climate change topics into existing Agricultural Science curriculum.” The researchers hope to reach 2,000 high school students in two years.

The project will also involve undergraduates at North Carolina State University, with the goal of increasing their “climate change knowledge.”

The project began Jan. 1, and research will continue through December 2017. The university has received $149,997 so far.

If the project is correct that farmers are skeptical that human activity is the primary cause of climate change, they are in line with the majority of Americans. The Pew Research Center found in 2014 that 53 percent do not believe there is enough evidence and that “natural patterns” are causing climate change, not mankind.

  1. The government and Obama find more ways to waste our tax dollars..

  2. David Larson says

    Right out of Lenin’s Soviet style propaganda MO. Mao, Stalin, Marx and Castro are all smiling to see this despot in the position he is in this country.

  3. Obama and the Democrats continue to spend more and more money to save the planet for our children but the only thing certain in this whole charade is that they are spending our children’s future away!

  4. Hitler and his machine were right…. Tell a lie often enough and loud enough and it becomes accepted as fact.

  5. This is ridiculous and the facts are very simple:

    CO2 is a “trace gas” in air and is insignificant by definition. It absorbs 1/7th as much IR, heat energy, from sunlight per molecule as water vapor which has 188 times as many molecules capturing 1200 times as much heat producing 99.8% of all “global warming.” CO2 does only 0.2% of it. For this we should destroy our economy, starve the world, cause hunger, riots and wars?

    There is no “greenhouse effect” in an atmosphere. A greenhouse has a solid, clear cover trapping heat. The atmosphere does not trap heat as gas molecules cannot form surfaces to work as greenhouses that admit and reflect energy depending on sun angle. Gases do not form surfaces as their molecules are not in contact.

    The Medieval Warming from 800 AD to 1300 AD Micheal Mann erased for his “hockey stick” was several Fahrenheit degrees warmer than anything “global warmers” fear. It was 500 years of world peace and abundance, longest ever.

    Vostock Ice Core data analysis show CO2 rises followed temperature by 800 years 19 times in 450,000 years. Therefore temperature change is cause and CO2 change is effect. This alone refutes the anthropogenic global warming hypothesis.

    Methane is called “a greenhouse gas 20 to 500 times more potent than CO2,” by Heidi Cullen and Jim Hansen, but it is not per the energy absorption chart at the American Meteorological Society. It has an absorption profile very similar to nitrogen which is classified “transparent” to IR, heat waves and is only present to 18 ppm. “Vegans” blame methane in cow flatulence for global warming in their war against meat consumption.

    Carbon combustion generates 80% of our energy. Control and taxing of carbon would give the elected ruling class more power and money than anything since the Magna Carta of 1215 AD.

    Most scientists and science educators work for tax supported institutions. They are eager to help government raise more money for them and they love being seen as “saving the planet.”

    Google “Two Minute Conservative” for clarity.

  6. News Item: MD Governor declares State of Emergency due to worst winter storm since 2010’s ” Snowmageddon”.

    Perhaps we worked too well in combating “warming”. Anyone care to wager whether or not the people of the Middle Atlantic States would appreciate a little warming right about now?

    Unfortunately for the USDA, farmers have a “reality check” when it comes to whether or not “Climate Change” is a negative, positive, or happening at all:
    It’s called walking outside!
    The rabbits infesting the warrens of the USDA should try it some time.

  7. So very true Steve. The bigger the Lie.

  8. The theory of man-made global climate change is necessary To create a global crisis that can only be solved by a global government under the control of the U.N. It is so useful that they will never give it up no matter what the evidence.
