Conservatives look to old playbook to promote climate denial February 10, 2013 : 4:35 PM

Just as anti-science forces have attempted to hamstring science education by mandating evolution be taught as a contentious debate, conservative groups are doing the same with the climate crisis:

"Last month, Arizona, Colorado, and Oklahoma all introduced bills that would make teaching about climate change in public schools less a science and more a political debate. The bills — based on model legislation from the supremely evil American Legislative Exchange Council — would require schools to teach that climate change is “controversial” and not widely accepted scientific fact."
