Inconvenient Youth: Brainwashing Teens With Climate Hysteria

A new group has been launched to brainwash America's teenagers with a "youth-focused version" of Nobel Laureate Al Gore's hysteria-filled and factually inaccurate schlockumentary "An Inconvenient Truth."

Even scarier, its founder is the daughter of a key partner at the venture capital firm Gore joined last November.

Based in Menlo Park, California, Inconvenient Youth is a non-profit group looking to "mobilize young people to educate their communities about environmental science" in order to solve global warming.

Isn't that sweet? Now Gore's got kids brainwashing other kids to further climate hysteria in the hopes that Congress will eventually enact a carbon cap and trade program that will likely make him a billionaire.

As reported by MarketWatch Friday:

Inconvenient Youth, a new non-profit, non-partisan network for and by teens has started recruiting and training young people to fight global warming. Today the group launched with a three-day workshop on climate change at Stanford University attended by youth from around the world.

The inaugural training will run from August 15-17 and is based on the acclaimed "An Inconvenient Truth" presentation by former Vice President Al Gore. Eighty students from as far away as New York and Japan are learning how to educate others about global warming and what they can do to fight it. Sessions include environmental science backgrounders, breakout discussions, brainstorming and plenary meetings. [...]

Inconvenient Youth is a non-profit network founded and driven by a team of four teenagers based in Menlo Park, California. Their goal is to mobilize young people to educate their communities about environmental science and solutions using a youth-focused version of "An Inconvenient Truth." The network is working to build enough momentum to make a real impact in solving global warming. Among the actions recommended by the group are grass-roots campaigns, forming campus climate clubs, and video recording sessions with city council and congressional members.

But here's where it gets interesting:

Keynote presentations will be delivered by Mary Doerr, founder and executive director, Inconvenient Youth.

It turns out that Mary is the daughter of John Doerr, a partner in the venture capital firm that Gore joined last November, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. As NewsBusters reported on May 2:

Untangling the web further, one of the key partners at KPCB, legendary moneyman John Doerr, also spoke at the TED conference in March, and as can be seen in this video, bragged about how he and seven of his colleagues lobbied legislators in California for the passage of AB 32, The Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006.

As Doerr proudly exclaimed, this made California "the first state in this country to mandate 25 percent reduction of greenhouse gases by 2020."

Later, Doerr told the audience something that should answer everybody's questions concerning what all this climate hysteria is about:

We've got to make this economic so that all people and all nations make the right outcome, the right profitable outcome, and, therefore, the likely outcome. Energy's a $6 trillion business worldwide. It is the mother of all markets. You remember that Internet? Well, I'll tell you what: green technologies, going green is bigger than the Internet. It could be the biggest economic opportunity of the 21st century.

And, as we reported back in May, Doerr's VC group -- much like Gore himself -- has made HUGE investments in companies creating green technologies.

Now, Doerr, his VC group, and the Global Warmingist-in-Chief have a new brainwashing entity to assist them in spreading the hysteria which will make their investments pay off.

Will media EVER make and REPORT this connection?
