Symphony in PC

Apparently, with assistance from the World Wildlife Fund, music lessons at this school involve children matching different rhythms to suit pictures of nature and of people such that the resulting cacophony provides ‘a springboard to consider the effect that humans have on the environment’. No longer, it would seem, are students simply allowed to learn music; rather, they now need to demonstrate due deference to the sustainability agenda while listening to a tune.

From a review of two books that could pour the icewater of sanity over the feverish climate-change cult of human=bad/nature=good. If anyone reads them. The author of one had a hard enough time just getting it published. Maybe I'll buy one for my brother for his birthday. Heh.
