The West Virginia Board of Education voted yesterday to put an end to months of controversy and open up teaching standards to permit students to consider both sides in the climate debate.
The Board voted 6-2 in favor of amending the standards to, as the Charleston Daily Mail reports, “allow students to use scientific models to form their own conclusions on the debated topic.”
“Supporters of the changes, including board members Wade Linger and Tom Campbell, argued that ‘science is never settled’ and that debate will lead students into a deeper understanding of the issue,” the paper added.
The vote represents a significant victory for student rights and for science. The scientific method demands consideration of all data, without regard for the impact this may have on a cherished theory. Open minds and free debate are essential to science and climate science is no exception.
When the Board voted in December to amend teaching standards to allow students to consider both sides in the climate debate, global warming pressure groups were apoplectic.
They ridiculed the Board and demanded it drop its revised standards and ban facts which question the man-made global warming narrative from the classroom.
Now we need to get the rest of the school boards in the U.S. to open their minds and allow students to debate AGW,
Sums it up in one sentence.
The sharks are circling around severely wounded Hillary
too bad you have no bench, libs/dems
It should be ILLEGAL.....
Of course, no one addressed the topic, which is the 97% global warming consensus is a falsehood.
John Cook, the man that came up with this, admits the methodology for calculating this bogus claim admits its false.
Can any of you liberals focus on ANY topic?
Count the debacles:
Helping overthrow Muammar Qaddafi in Libya, leading to anarchy and civil war.
Pressuring Husni Mubarak of Egypt to resign, then backing the Muslim Brotherhood, leading now-president Sisi to turn toward Moscow.
Alienating Washington’s most stalwart ally in the region, the Government of Israel.
Dismissing ISIS as “junior varsity” just before it seized major cities.
Hailing Yemen as a counterterrorism success just before its government was overthrown.
Alarming the Saudi authorities to the point that they put together a military alliance against Iran.
Coddling Recep Tayyip Erdoğan of Turkey, encouraging his dictatorial tendencies.
Leaving Iraq and Afghanistan prematurely, dooming the vast American investment in those two countries.
And, worst of all: Making dangerously flawed deals with the nuclear-ambitious mullahs of Iran.
And no Hillary, you're not going to be able to hide from these foreign policy disasters
John Merline of Investor’s Business Daily has been examining the numbers on Obamacare enrollment and discovers that, contrary to predictions of millions more signing up, new enrollments are dying.
Expectations were as many as 1.2 million to sign up.
But last week the administration admitted — buried in the middle of a press release
—++++++ that a mere 36,000 had done so by the end of March. +++++++++
It was another sign that enrollment is hitting a wall, well before ObamaCare has signed up enough people to be sustainable.
Exchanges needed to enroll up to 75% of their eligible markets.... But states are having trouble getting over the ++++ 35% mark. ++++++
Ruh roh.......the Obamacare disaster is picking up steam.
When a conservative filmmaker wansts to film a Pro-LIFE movie, militant pro-abortionmurder actors Ed Harris and Meryl Streep MUST star in the film, if asked. If they refuse, a totalitarian gov't agency will bring down jack-boots on their throats.
Sound good, liberals?
The same negotiator that negotiated Bubba Clinton's nuke deal with N. Korea, is negotiating this one. Gives you a real warm & fuzzy, no? The N. Korea nuke deal worked out so well. lmao
Bubba Clinton made the same arguments about N. Korea that Obama is now making about Iran. You know, "it'll make them peaceful, it'll make them moderate, it'll make them abandon their program." The exact opposite happened.
Why is it that so many rogue, 3rd world countries get nuclear weapons under Democrat regimes?
New York Sen. Chuck Schumer, in all likelihood the next Senate Democratic leader, has endorsed passage of a measure opposed by President Barack Obama that would give Congress a chance to reject the administration-brokered nuclear framework deal with Iran.
Schumer, who is also one of the most influential voices in the Iran debate, told Politico on Monday that "I strongly believe that Congress should have the right to disapprove any agreement" dealing with Iran's nuclear program.
Chuck Schumer says "Chuck U" to Obama
You really want to take a shower immediately after having any contact with liberals.
What's wrong liberals/Dems/LGBTnutjobs? Why aren't you protesting the MooooozleeeemmBakers in Dearbornistan who won't bake a 'Mo"Wedding"Cake? And where is the liberal media on this story?
You are such despicable frauds.
