This is certainly environmental indoctrination, and it is certainly objectionable (if perhaps inevitable in government controlled schools) to use the school system to push political causes and beliefs. But it's far from new. I went to high school in the 1990s. I remember global warming was a frequent topic and events like "Earth Day" prompted speakers and assemblies. People usually manage to grow out of their childhood indoctrination once it is confronted by evidence to the contrary.
The problem is that the modern environment movement has successfully divorced itself from any reliance upon actual evidence among believers. The new ice age scare turned into global warming turned into climate change and now climate disruption. It has become completely unfalsifiable, unaccountable, and evidence free. The frantic data manipulations of climate "scientists" are no longer necessary. The faithful will believe in the face of proof to the contrary.
Pournelle lays out the end game:
That's the end game, and it has always been the end game.
