Warmists Freak Over Teachers Being Sent Skeptical Books

It’s a horrible, horrible thing being exposed to different viewpoints in the education system, eh? And totally chilling! (Via Twitchy)

See? Chilling

(PBS) Twenty-five thousand science teachers opened their mailboxes this month and found a package from the Heartland Institute, a libertarian think tank that rejects the scientific consensus on climate change.

It contained the organization’s book “Why Scientists Disagree About Global Warming,” as well as a DVD rejecting the human role in climate change and arguing instead that rising temperatures have been caused primarily by natural phenomena. The material will be sent to an additional 25,000 teachers every two weeks until every public-school science teacher in the nation has a copy, Heartland president and CEO Joseph Bast said in an interview last week. If so, the campaign would reach more than 200,000 K-12 science teachers.

It’s so scary, asking teachers of science to have open minds!

    This is the exact reason public broadcasting needs to lose government funding. It is noting but a mouthpiece for the left.

  2. Phil says:

    I will see if I can buy a copy. No one who believes in AGW will read the book, but they might watch the DVD if you sit with them.

    “The chilling effort..” Yes, another point of view is certainly chilling.

  4. Jeffery says:

    Science and evidence have a definite liberal bias.

    One point of view is based on science and evidence, and the Heartland Inst peddles lies. See the difference?

    Really? It’s the left, not sensible people, who can look at a guy with a penis and testicles and say, “I’ll bet that’s a girl.”

    Science and evidence are not your strong suits.

    It’s also the left, not sensible people, who can look at the beating heart of a child in her mother’s womb and say, “That’s not a person go murder it”. Science alludes you guys at every turn. As does the truth.

    Proof of “lying”, J? Good luck

  8. Jl says:

    But I’m shocked J’s true inner fascist comes out in favor of book-banning. You can’t refute them, so you have to ban them. Who knew libs are hypocrites?

  9. Jeffery says:

    And while schoolchildren in China and India are being taught science in science class, American school children will be taught that scientific data is a matter of opinion.

    Would you teach that 99% of climate scientists are leftist dupes serving their communist masters?

    Would you teach that God controls the climate on Earth just as it created humanity?

    • drowningpuppies says:

      WTF, what mind numbingly stupid point are you trying to make, little guy?

      Freakier and freakier… little guy making even less sense than before.
      If that’s even possible.

  10. drowningpuppies says:

    Along the AGW scam apparently this is what schoolchildren are also “taught” in America today.

    No Dumbass, children in China are taught to obey their government overlords just like the leftists here teach. No independent thought, no other opinions than the government narrative, no tolerance for the views of others. Just like the left here does. Just like you do. All you leftists are afraid if people think outside your fascist bubbles they will see the truth. You are correct, they will.

    Here’s one thing those poor lied to children in China (and here) are ever taught: The famine in “socialist” China. Believe it or not this picture was 1961:

    Now think of our America in 1961. My dad drove a Desoto, we owned our home, hade refrigeration, a/c, and a telephone. These people are scraping for food. Yeah, capitalism bad, left’s get those leftists back in power.

  12. Jeffery says:

    Stinky Fake American Dumbass,

    Listen Dumbass, while the Chinese and Indian children are learning math and science you want American children taught that the Earth is moving closer to the Sun or that the Earth is warming from all the body heat generated by humans (both from Scott Wagner, Republican State Senator).

    Scientific evidence is not the same as some politician’s ignorant opinion.

  13. david7134 says:

    Hoagie,
    The guy likely has not left the US and believes the carp from the left side. I am in Korea now and the Chinese are not. Their government told them not to come here. Even worse, the Chinese government told the citizens not to buy Korean so they destroyed all the Lotte stores in China. Our media does not report this. All they are talking about is the stupid Russian nonstory. Reason, the placement of thadd missles.

  14. Jeffery says:

    The Heartland Institute can spread their ignorance pseudoscience fossil fuel industry funded propaganda – it’s their right. The answer is a rational discussion of their lack of evidence.

    Their “scientific” tract opens with the idea that global warming is not a threat because “ISIS is beheading people”.

    The evangelical christian-supported Discovery Institute has tried to overturn over a century of scientific thought and discoveries on evolution, using tactics similar to Heartland – pseudoscience slick propaganda, e.g., their “Teach the Controversy” gambit… the tobacco industry did something similar for years.

    All these lobbying groups push pseudoscientific explanations to suit their constituencies, whether the fossil fuels industry, conservative christians or the tobacco industry.

    Sunlight is the best disinfectant. Point out repeatedly who funds these lobbying groups and the complete and total lack of scientific underpinnings to their claims. Rinse and repeat.

  15. Jeffery says:

    dave,

    Not surprised you defend North Korea… not sure what that has to do with Heartland sending disinformation to teachers.

    Conservatives want to teach mythology, religion and pseudoscience to our children to further conservative political causes. Teach science in science classes or we’ll have a generation of scientific illiterates competing globally with those taught actual science.

    Global warming and evolution are not opinions.

  16. Jeffery says:

    Teaching our children pseudoscientific claptrap has real world consequences.

    The US already imports tens of thousands of foreign-born scientists and engineers each year to full our technical needs.

    Look at the faces of Silicon Valley and our major research institutes.

    We can’t afford to fall behind our global competitors just to satisfy short-term profit motives or long-term religious ones.

    • o0Nighthawk0o says:

      You’ve spent this whole discussion slamming our education system. So let’s look at it.

      A 1st grader can’t point their finger at someone and say “BANG!” without getting thrown out of school. This same child is also taught that gender is fluid and there is more than two. Sex Ed has morphed into teaching sex acts instead of the science of sex and where babies come from and how to properly use contraception. Students are push through school and passed even if they haven’t earned it on the pretense that every child deserves to pass. Participation trophies instead of winners and losers. School bathrooms and locker rooms open to every one regardless if their biological gender matches or not. College campuses being transformed into safe places where differing views are silenced and where every word is a possible trigger.

      Yes, our education system is screwed and practically worthless but only because of liberal bullshit.

      The theory of AGW, yes it is just a theory, does have science to back it up but there is just as much science that refutes the theory. But anyone who tries to offer this differing science is shouted down and/or called a corporate shill.

      This is not how science, or education, works. Differing views should be encouraged and discussed. But the left won’t allow that. It’s their view or nothing. And the attempt is made to destroy those that offer that differing point.

  17. david7134 says:

    Jeff,
    You claim to have cured cancer. But you would not know science of you fell on it. As I have said before, you are just an arranger of parties. Besides, North Korea is the government you want.

  18. jl says:

    In the end, J uses the same stupid excuses fascists have used over the years to justify book-banning and general decimination of speech-“it’s for your own good because we know better.” It was a lame excuse then just as it is now. And notice still no refuting of the data in the books, hence being ok with banning them

  19. jl says:

    I love it- “fossil fuel industry funded propaganda.” As if the alarmists wouldn’t fall under “big government funded propaganda.” And as the government has much bigger pockets to fund the alarmist industry. So our sad J, as before, unknowingly makes a case for the other side.

  20. Jeffery says:

    Criticizing Heartland for lobbying for Exxon and Koch, is not the same as book-burning. Next, you’ll call abortion murder.

    Heartland has every right to send their bullshit to schools, they are just spreading disinformation.

  21. jl says:

    It’s just that the “disinformation” that hasn’t been refuted. Other than that……
