Website has shades of Orwell’s 1984 about it
I was pointed in the direction of the npower website and was both shocked and disturbed by their low carbon economy section. In this section npower encourages children to keep a diary of “climate crimes” committed by their parents and to challenge them to change their ways.
They even have a Climate Cops pack for schools to indoctrinate our children in the ways of eco-extremism. Anyone who has read George Orwell’s 1984 will immediately recognise the tactic of recruiting children to spy on their parents.
Orwell intended his book as a warning, not an instruction manual. The day my children come home from school and tell me they’ve been told to keep a diary of my “cliamte crimes” will be a very unfortunate day for the teacher that told them to do it!
