'A Ph.D in education is "a valid marker" of left wing ideology in education these days. Anyone wishing to educate children rather than indoctrinate them and kibosh their chances in life should steer clear of any state validated educational qualification as the left has a stranglehold on content and delivery.'

Pushing Junk Science on Children in the USA

More political context for CO2 alarmism getting into schools in the USA is given in this piece:  http://www.americanthinker.com/2010/10/pushing_junk_science_on_childr.html      than in my earlier one here: http://climatelessons.blogspot.com/2010_09_01_archive.html

Extract:

'Democrat Representative John Sarbanes of Maryland wants public schools to "get young people invested" in "climate change" and "population growth" in order to "[raise] awareness early" and "promote the agenda." That would be the agenda of junk science alarmism.

Thank goodness for clarity, because until now, Americans were unaware that public schools are supposed to breed fanatics for ruling class politics. Not only has Sarbanes advocated global warming indoctrination, but the congressman's remarks also seem to call for schools to push the debunked overpopulation myth popularized by Paul Ehrlich in his 1970 book, The Population Bomb. Rachel Carson's DDT scare, acid rain, anti-nuclear power hysteria, the population bomb, and the global warming hoax -- the world has been asked to prepare for one faux-disaster after another. In the process, American liberals have used schools and universities to fill young minds with grotesque falsehoods.'

Is there any country in which this corruption of the young is not taking place?  Certainly not the UK.
