The Los Angeles Times has published an interesting article this morning regarding the teaching of climate change in classrooms. Legislators in several states are unhappy with the propensity of teachers to present only one side of the global warming debate and have passed resolutions supporting sound science and have introduced legislation to require a balanced presentation of the scientific debate.
The Times quotes me in its article, for which I am appreciative. Nevertheless, the article shows how important it is to keep the foot on the pedal in disseminating the truth about global warming. For example, the article claims “scientific evidence increasingly shows that fossil fuel consumption has caused the climate to change rapidly” and “climatologists say man-made climate change is not scientifically controversial.”
More accurate language would read, “the climate is warming modestly and within natural parameters, which makes the controversial topic of human attribution interesting but largely unimportant regarding human welfare” and “more than 31,000 scientists have signed the Oregon Petition explaining why humans are not causing a global warming crisis.”
We will continue to disseminate the truth about global warming, and the truth will ultimately prevail.
