Stay vigilant – Climate Change Propaganda Maybe Coming to Your Children’s School.

Russ Steele

The left is growing concerned that the climate change deniers are winning over the public and have decided to take action. They have launched an initiative to teach a onesided view of climate change. From the initiative website:

Welcome to the National Center for Science Education’s climate change education initiative. Long respected for its work in defending and supporting the teaching of evolution in the public schools, in 2012 NCSE launched this new initiative to defend and support the teaching of climate change. This section of the website includes the four main sections of the climate change education resources here.

There is substantial scientific agreement about the occurrence, causes, and consequences of climate change. Yet due to the inherent complexity of the topic and the social controversies surrounding it, confusion and doubt often persist. “Climate Change 101” presents the central questions about climate change — is the climate changing?, are humans causing that change?, what will the consequences be?, what can be done about it? — answering them based on the current best scientific understanding.

It is important for the science of climate change to be taught, both in formal and informal educational environments, in order for future citizens to be able to make scientifically informed decisions about the consequences of climate change. But educators face challenges in helping their students attain climate literacy. “Teaching about Climate Change” reviews these challenges and offers suggestions and resources to help meet them.

The social controversy over climate change is in part due to climate change denial. In order to defend and support the teaching of climate change, it is important to understand — and be able to rebut — arguments about climate science, and to understand why people choose to attack such well-tested science. “Climate Change Denial” provides the essential tools, and also describes how climate change denial is already threatening the integrity of science education.

If the National Center for Science Education shows up at a school in Nevada County please let me know. The climate science of global warming is not well tested as claimed. It is based on a bunch of dodgy computer models run by grant seeking academics.  If you are not questioning, you are not doing science. Global warming consensus is not science, it is indoctrination politics, and that is what the National Center for Science Education is all about.

    Comparing climate skepticism to “creationism” in the classroom, or Science gets Glicked. Check out this post at Watts Up With That: http://wattsupwiththat.com/2012/01/19/comparing-climate-skepticism-to-creationism-in-the-classroom/

    Here is a sample:

    Besides the obviously ridiculous attempts to link creationism to climate skepticsim (apparently the serial use of the word “denier” isn’t denigrating enough anymore) we have the unfortunate appointment of Dr. Peter Gleick of the Pacific Institute. PI is another handout seeking non governmental organization that publishes its own science opinions.

    While Dr. Gleick is presented as an expert in climate science, he’s mostly about water and water systems. Climate seems to be just an angry diversion for him. But don’t take my word for it, have a look at how he treats others on the topic when he thinks he’s among friends.
