Stephen Moore is an economic consultant with Freedom Works. He writes:

A friend of mine’s third-grade daughter came home from school a few weeks ago with tears streaming down her cheeks. “My teacher say we only have 10 years before the oceans rise, and we are under water,” she moaned. “Are we all going to die?”

That’s a heavy burden to place on the shoulders of a 9-year-old.

Gloomy stories of the coming apocolypse have become commonplace in schools, textbooks, churches, movies and even children’s bedtime stories.
