If you want your kid to grow into a prize ninny, Columbia University can make it happen.
In return for decades’ worth of student debt, your son or daughter can enroll in “climate change games” in which students compose tragic, fictitious voice mail messages from imaginary people about to be killed by imaginary Global Warming. (Source: “Columbia University to spend $5.7 million in taxpayer funds on climate change games,” by Katherine Timpf).
This idiocy is funded by a $5.7 million grant from the National “Science” Foundation–money that real people had to work for.
Ah, what a festival of reason! A gala of clear and sober thinking! What a great way to earn a college degree! Made-up messages from people who are about to be drowned by an onrushing tsunami (“I love you, Mom–glug, glug!”), or broiled alive by the Warming, or choking for air because “I’m out of CO2 credits!” It’s Atlantis meets The Towering Inferno for a disaster movie fest.
Utterly shameless. But visit that Campus Reform site. You’ll find this left-wing drivel has completely taken over America’s whole university system.
This is how a great country winds up being governed by fools.
I’ll bet I could’ve aced that course, inventing voice mail messages like these:
“Oh! If only we’d passed Cap and Trade, this earthquake never would’ve happened!”
“This is what we get for allowing all that homophobia and Income Inequality!”
“We should have listened to the atheists!”
“Oh why, why, why did we wait so long to have a carbon tax! Al Gore was right!”
“Alas! they told us only communism could save us from Climate Change–and we wouldn’t listen! Is it really too late to collectivize?”
Shame, shame, shame…
But that’s exactly what these people at Columbia are incapable of feeling.
