Default House Dems to teachers: Destroy book written by ‘climate deniers’

This is what democrats call education. Think their way or hit the road jack.

House Dems to teachers: Destroy book written by 'climate deniers' ⋆ Conservative Firing Line

Quote:
So much for freedom of thought and expression. On Monday, three prominent House Democrats asked school teachers to destroy a book by climate scientists that challenges liberal dogma on climate change, the Daily Caller reported.

According to the Daily Caller:

The Democrats were responding to a campaign by the conservative Heartland Institute copies of the 2015 book, “Why Climate Scientists Disagree About Global Warming” to about 200,000 science teachers. Democratic Reps. Bobby Scott of the Committee on Education, Raúl M. Grijalva of the Committee on Natural Resources, and Eddie Bernice Johnson of the Committee on Science, Space and Technology all issued a statement telling teachers to trash the book.

“Public school classrooms are no place for anti-science propaganda, and I encourage every teacher to toss these materials in the recycling bin,” Scott said. “If the Heartland Institute and other climate deniers want to push a false agenda on global warming, our nation’s schools are an inappropriate place to drive that agenda.”

The book’s three authors all hold doctorates and taught climate or related science at the university level. The book was written by former Arizona State University climatologist Dr. Craig D. Idso, James Cook University marine geology and paleontology professor Robert M. Carter, and University of Virginia environmental scientist Dr. Fred Singer.

Grijalva, Andrew Follett said, “accused the scientists of “lying to children about the world we live in to further corporate polluter profits'” while Johnson claimed the scientists had sent “scientifically inaccurate materials on climate change to public school teachers across the country” at the behest of ominous right wing donors and the Charles and David Koch brothers.

The report does not indicate what evidence, if any, Johnson has to prove his ridiculous claim.

Follett adds:

The best way to get adults to act like environmentalists is by brainwashing their children, according to research published by Oregon State University. Talking to kids about global warming caused their parents to use less energy and act more like environmentalists. The research was run on was run on 30 Girl Scout troops in northern California and had a “lasting impact on family energy consumption” for at least eight months after the end of the program.

Based on the study’s success, the researchers are now disseminating the curriculum to Girl Scout leaders around the country and attempting to adapt it to other groups of kids, including schools and youth-focused organizations such as 4-H with the help of other universities, such as Stanford. The research was financially supported by government grants.

Now we know what Democrats really think of dissenting points of view.

Climate change is not a matter of opinion just like evolution is not.

The topic is that liberal Democrats will lie cheat and burn anything that stands in their way, to get their agenda through, even to children.

Yup the bastards have been brainwashing our kids. Polluting young minds with lies and mistruths.

This is after all just another of the lefts examples of how they wish to control through a series of lies, and telling our children their lies and presenting them as facts in the sanctity of our Public school systems.

So book banning is needed to protect those "not opinions" .


both the right and the left have their totalitarians who are ready to chuck real freedom in the trash if their "not opinions" are not promoted exclusively.
it's pitful and the worse thing about it they can't even admit their own blindness to it. Much less take a step back and even consider that their "not opinion" may in fact BE .... mostly opinion and conjecture with real counter arguments.

Yes, we know climate changes, it has done so many times over the many century's. However, that is not what the op is about. It is about democrats encouraging teachers to throw away and burn books that do not comport with their ideology.

Try to keep up.

If that's true, then why are there so many differing opinions on the subject?

Even though I absolutely, positively, 100% believe evolution as fact, I do recognize that others have a differing opinion.

If that is true, And I doubt you can prove it is, then why cannot the teachers debunk the denier science?

Oh wait.....
https://www.heartland.org/publicatio...global-warming
"The most important fact about climate science, often overlooked, is that scientists disagree about the environmental impacts of the combustion of fossil fuels on the global climate. There is no survey or study showing “consensus” on the most important scientific issues, despite frequent claims by advocates to the contrary."

http://fourwinds10.com/siterun_data/...p?q=1256743412
A hypothesis must withstand all assaults on it's proof. Not just burn the opposing published papers

Real science demands the prediction models are proven correct. They continue to fail. So my question is, why must the "deniers have to prove their science beyond honest objection....; but the promoters of AGW do not?

By what honest reaoning do the Al Gore charlatans get to publish their unproven theories un opposed?
