Rita Panahi has slammed “climate emergency” workshops offered to school children by the City of Sydney.

Lord Mayor Clover Moore has commissioned workshops at 19 inner-city schools to educate them on a “climate emergency”.

The Daily Telegraph suggests they’re discussing ideas such as urban cool rooms, underground cars and bookless libraries in 2050.

The City of Sydney council has set a target of 100 per cent renewable energy by 2030

Rita Panahi tells John Stanley the council is employing “scaremongering” tactics.

“Why in God’s name are we inflicting this nonsense on children?!

“I don’t know why the parents allow it and school communities just uncritically accept this.

“No wonder we’ve got kids wagging school, protesting in the street, when they’re exposed to this.”
