Schools must warn of Gore climate film bias

Now, if we could stop liberal teachers in the USA from injecting their liberal bias into the trusting minds of kids.

Sure - we shouldn't teach science and facts. Instead, let's teach 'intelligence design' to our kids. Way to go America!

No, saying the Earth is doomed in 10 years is factual, right?

It's hard to compare the climate change issue with evolution/creationism because the former is an intellectual vs. political debate, whereas the latter is really a constitutional/school board issue where there's a tradition of all involved parties playing fast and loose with the guidelines...

Climate change can easily be taught, with a mention that the theories cited are still in play, considering the vast body of knowledge in support of them and all the geological and meteorological evidence unfolding daily across our television screens...

If the opposition ever gets any respectable, objective, hard scientists to support their denials credibly, this may change, but, of course, those pesky manifestations and evidence of climate change will have no valid explanation and will not stop because of corporatism and political agendas.

"Intelligent design" appears to have been seen largely as a pitiful compromise between two historical extremes that satisfied no one's quest for truth, and seems to have faded into the sunset. The "evolution vs. creationism" false dichotomy is nevertheless the one that parents and administrators want taught, the students look forward to these classroom discussions, and an intelligent, sensitive, insightful educator has no problem presenting the curriculum and watching what develops...

Younger people actually tend to be far more intelligent, spirited, curious, and respectful of the views of their peers than adults are.

Where has anyone said that it is a fact that the earth is doomed in ten years?

Schools must also warn that Gore uses more electrictiy in his mansion than the average American. He is a hypocrit and his "carbon footprint" stinks.

Sorry football mom, but that is a really stupid comment.

I'll bet I use a lot more gasoline than you do, but at least I drive a hybrid car to use less than I would otherwise. Does that make me some kind of hypocrite?
