    Of course they are using those tactics. For, like the creationists, the science is totally against their point of view. So, rather than argueing the science, they are trying to prevent the science from being taught at all.

    Yeah let's teach kids that the only way to get anything done is to let big government tax the shit out of us all in the name of saving the planet.

    And they won't teach that even if the United States reverted to the fucking stone age that it wouldn't even put a dent in CO2 emissions as long as China India and the rest of the developing world is expanding.

    What a bullshit, nothing comment. That isn't being taught and only goes to prove that the deniers only have the political option to go with, having failed miserably in proving the science wrong.

    What if a classroom teacher taught both points of view, and let the student decide for themselves?

    What a novel concept!

    What if they just taught the science? You don't teach points of view, you teach the facts!

    Don't make me laugh. Government schools teach what the government wants them to teach. The last thing the fucking government wants is a population that can think for itself.

    There's no room for the religion of Global Warming in Public Schools; it's indoctrination plain and simple
