For Bergoglio, the charges are quite personal. Two Jesuit priests who were kidnapped and tortured by the regime in 1976, claim that then-Father Bergoglio—who at the time was the leader of the Jesuit order in Argentina—was complicit in their abduction. According to a book written about the era, Bergoglio "withdrew his order's protection" for them, because they refused to his request to stop visiting the Buenos Aries slums. That loss of the Church's shield allow
In the early 1970s a group called the Club of Rome published Limits to Growth, which based on a complex computer model predicted the exhaustion of natural resources and mass starvation resulting from population growing faster than food production.
All of these catastrophic events were to take place before the century. Of course, none did. The entire Club of Rome agenda was based on what Austrian economist Friedrich Hayek termed the fatal conceit and the failure to understand how markets work and the benefits of technology.
Today’s Club of Rome is the Vatican and Pope Francis’ encyclical on humans, climate, and nature

By the time these kids reach their adulthood they would either get into video games or other activity either way these kids as poly things for the media and elitists.
Growing with CO2: Improve Your Yield Part II
In an unaltered environment, a plant will be exposed to an atmosphere containing 390-400 parts per million (ppm) of carbon dioxide. A plant will not grow or thrive in environments with less than 300 ppm in their atmosphere. When modifying the growing environment to increase the yield of your plants, a grower will increase their CO2 up to 2,000 ppm. Although, the recommended CO2 level is 1,200-1,500 ppm. You can relate elevating CO2 levels to natural steroids- the plants can only sustain so much growth over a shortened amount of time before the plant experiences tissue damage and no longer produces a desirable product. Higher CO2 levels create a more compact cellular structure in the plant that yields a denser, not bigger, product.

You do realise, the vast majority of those kids are agnostic/atheist, right?

I could answer more to the posters who promote that absurdity not based on science but on ideology, including where their own political agenda leads to a new ultraconservative dictatorship known from the time of Stalin and Hitler, if not to all out nuclear war, but I do not want to go to their level of reasoning.
Fascism, animal rights and human rights. The Nazis ordered soldiers to plant more trees. They were the first Europeans to establish nature reserves and order the protection of hedgerows and other wildlife habitats. And they were horrified at the idea of hydroelectric dams on the Rhine. Adolf Hitler and other leading Nazis were vegetarian and they passed numerous laws on animal rights.
Not only did Hitler refuse to eat meat, but he and the Nazi Party passed some of the first nation-wide laws against all forms of animal cruelty in history. Even today, no country has laws that punish animal cruelty as severely as the Nazis did. And it wasn’t just Hitler; many of the top Nazi officials spoke out frequently against the mistreatment of animals. But why? How could the people who practically invented industrialized genocide possibly have been so against the killing of animals? To answer that question, let’s look at just how the Nazis viewed animal cruelty and the psychological explanations that can explain how they ignored the obvious connection between cruelty to animals and cruelty to human beings.
But it wasn’t just eating animals that Hitler objected to. He also objected to practices like vivisection, where scientific experiments are conducted on living animals. In fact, one of the first acts that the Nazi party passed on coming to power was a total ban on the practice. In addition, hunting and boiling lobsters were banned. Like everything the Nazis did, these laws were upheld with brutal methods. Anyone caught violating these laws was to be sent to concentration camps. And a German fisherman actually was sent to a camp for cutting up a frog.
