As part of a new initiative, children are being encouraged to spy on their parents and report any environmental transgressions.
Download the â€˜Climate Crimeâ€™ cards and use them to search your home to make sure that none are happening under your own roof! Then build your â€˜Climate Crime Case Fileâ€™ and report back to your family to make sure they donâ€™t commit those crimes again (or else)! You may need to keep a watchful eye over them by revisiting the case every week or two to make sure they donâ€™t slip back into any of their old habits.
Reminds me of the line from George Orwellâ€™s 1984:
It was almost normal for people over thirty to be frightened of their own children. And with good reason, for hardly a week passed in which the Times did not carry a paragraph describing how some eavesdropping little sneak â€” â€˜child heroâ€™ was the phrase generally used â€” had overheard some compromising remark and denounced its parents to the Thought Police.
