Taxpayers paid more than $5 million to create climate change games, including voicemails from the future warning that neo-luddites will kill global warming enthusiasts by 2035.
Columbia Universitys Climate Center has received $5.7 million from the National Science Foundation for the universitys PoLAR Climate Change Education Partnership, to engage adult learners and inform public understanding and response to climate change.
Based on the theory that games motivate exploration and learning of complex material, the school created Future Coast, a website that features hundreds of made up voicemails painting a dire picture of the future as a result of climate change.
The messages are banal, mysterious, and terrifying, about possible climate changed futures in attempts to convince the public to act on climate change now.
Who hasnt wondered what the future will be like for us and for our planet? This is your chance to find out! the university said.
That future, according to Columbia, includes a world with robotic arms, where humans are like pets, live underground, and in fear of their lives from climate skeptics.
Listeners also learn that in 2020 people will still be making Chris Christie Bridgegate jokes.

I suggest a game of “Running Man” where we get to hunt down these idiots for fabulous cash and mechandise prizes.
I think that would be a great idea.
It is infuriating how much we taxpayers are being called on to fund progressive propaganda campaigns.

“Called on”? Haha...we are being fleeced
Of course we did. Who would expect anything else?
crap like this doesn’t stop till the money runs out.
So what will cause that?
1) going bankrupt like the ussr
I don’t think there is any other way the money stops.,..........
Idiotic. Globull warming nuts are the Luddites: they want us to live in mud huts and live on fungus.
While all of us paleo-luddites just want to run them through with stone tipped spears right now. Of course the fundamentalist-luddites reject the spear and want to beat them with large rocks.
Well played sir!
We are witnessing a world (and government) gone completely insane. They don’t even try any more to come up with decent lies. They just spew it out and depend on the media who are their lapdogs and academia who they pay to do these ridiculous ‘studies’ to bat cleanup.
There hasn’t been a real Obama budget his entire time in office. Our self-serving RINOs keep giving them money, increasing the debt ceiling and then piss on our leg and tell us it’s rain.
