Tax Funded Brainwashing Continues

( – During a July event at the U.S. Department of Education, children from D.C. schools and day care centers were treated to free books, including two featuring Nickelodeon characters as part of the media organization’s “The Big Green Help” Series. One of the books promotes the idea that global warming is man made and the second book talks about what kids can do to save the Earth.

SpongeBob Goes Green! An Earth-Friendly Adventure! tells the story of SpongeBob’s friend, Krusty Krab, who builds a swimming pool. Mr. Krab is frustrated that it is not hot enough to attract paying customers to his new swimming pool and decides that the exhaust from boats and cars could solve his dilemma.

Mr. Krab says: “I’m just pumpin’ a wee bit of carbon dioxide into the air. It’ll warm up the temperature and bring on an endless summer! People will want to use my new pool all year long.”

To help with his cause, SpongeBob and his friend Patrick set stacks of tires on fire.

“More smoke floated up into the sky,” the book states.

The author does not explain how a pool is built underwater, how vehicles submerged in the ocean can produce exhaust, or how tires burn and send smoke into the air from the bottom of the sea.

But the book does explain the dangers of global warming.

Sandy the squirrel, who wears an underwater suit, comes to the rescue.

“What are you doing messin’ with Mother Nature?” Sandy says. “You’re polluting Bikini Bottom with all this carbon dioxide and bringin’ on global warming.”

“What’s global warming?” SpongeBob asks.

“Ya see, Earth has these gases called greenhouse gases,” says Sandy. “They’re in the atmosphere to keep the temperature of the planet just right. Carbon Dioxide is one of those gases. But when we make more greenhouse gases than the planet needs naturally, like you’ve been burnin’ tires and fuel, it locks the heat in the atmosphere. That makes the planet hotter than it should be. That’s global warming. And that’s not good.”

Global warming causes the water in Mr. Krab’s pool to boil away, but once everyone plants trees, starts riding bikes and unplugs appliances, Bikini Bottom is restored and Mr. Krab gives people a discounted entry into the pool if they ride their bike or walk. ---------------------- Read more
