And now dirtgirl, the lead character in the popular children's television program dirtgirlworld, has been enlisted to the climate change fight by a Gillard government struggling to convince her viewers' parents of the merits of the carbon tax package.

This is further abuse of our children - see ABUSE of Children.

The Australian also reports that other recipients of the warm (or warming) benevolence of the government include Greencross Australia - $200,000
