What a travesty our education system is becoming. Despite the fertile unscientific mindsets of some, including many teachers, the science on the cause of climate change is far from settled, particularly on humans being the problem. Climate has always fluctuated and will continue to do so.
By all means let the adults debate this sensibly. Admittedly, it is hard to find a believer who is able to see beyond the extremist propaganda, but to pretend that it is the role of the teacher to brainwash children with their version of the issue, and then further pretend that this is a grassroots uprising by the children, is a disgrace to the profession — and a disservice to those children. How presumptuous, how sad that much teaching has come to this. Gary Smitham, Kellyville, NSW
