Keep Climate Denial Out of the Schools February 28, 2012 : 1:59 PM

Maggie Fox, CEO of the Alliance for Climate Protection writes:

“Do you think schools should teach our children that climate change isn’t real?”

“Of course not. But the Heartland Institute, an organization well-known for giving a microphone to climate science deniers, now wants to bring this false message into America’s classrooms.”

“As their President and CEO just admitted, they are writing a “global warming curriculum” that would say climate science isn’t settled. They’d like our teachers to claim we just don’t know if humans are changing our climate.”

“This plan is outrageous on its face. As you well know, the science behind climate change is not controversial — it is a reality. Scientists know that climate change is happening, and we are beginning to see the impacts with our own eyes. It would be the height of irresponsibility to urge our schools to teach something known to be untrue.”
