    Wanted to inject their idiocy into the school before anyone could figure out what was going on.  If not this "Institute" then some other would come along I'm sure.  But shine a light on them and the roaches will scurry.

    Doesn't matter though.  I'm sure some school district in Kansas is already discussing adoption of these new curricula.  :(

      all over this already.

      This, too, shall pass. Just like the last global ecological cataclysm. C'est la vie, dude. Take a chill pill, recite the serenity prayer, go with the flow and the moderates into that "goodnight".

        LA Times article

        Texas and Louisiana have introduced education standards that require educators to teach climate change denial as a valid scientific position. South Dakota and Utah passed resolutions denying climate change. Tennessee and Oklahoma also have introduced legislation to give climate change skeptics a place in the classroom.

          Like it's scripted.
