Here it is. Proof positive that the Eco-Alarmist political action groups are intentionally targeting underage children with their propagandist tree-hugger pornography. Worst of all, innocent young Canadians, who of course stand no chance of ever possessing the political clout to affect change.

Aware: (according to Global Warming Alarmists)
Compulsory and unquestioning agreement with a certain dictated set of ideas without the presentation of any dissenting or even differing systems of data.
When a political group claims to 'raise awareness' what they are saying is that no person who examines the same set of data, or any other available data (about which said political group is either unaware or uninterested), could possibly reach a different conclusion, and thusly should not be bothered with an exercise of open discourse, and free thought. Simply accept the opinion of said political group because as you all know they are smarter and much more well read than you could ever hope to be. 'Raising awareness' is an old trick in the realm of public debate in which you 'prove' your point by presupposing it in the basis of the argument. This is a trick well practiced by grifters and con-men in such scams as the paranoia scam, the snake oil scam, and many forms of long and short investment cons, and of course one of the greatest cons of all time The United States Congress.
Make no mistake about it, no matter the true nature of the scientific facts involved, those that seek to close this debate with a cry for action and action alone, those that seek to stifle free and open discourse are no more than sycophantic perverts.
To put it another way Dale Carnegie once said
"Fear not those who argue, but those who dodge."
