We need critical thinking in school because so many people believe our use of fossil fuel has been an experimental test of man made climate change.
Should a claim be accepted until proven false or rejected until proven true?

I think if the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere is doubled, the Earth will warm slightly, probably at the low end of the IPCC estimates. That warming could be beneficial; we don't have any experimental test that shows its harmful. Certainly history has shown warmer climates and more CO2 is beneficial to life and colder climates with less CO2 is hostile to life.
The mass of CO2 is about 3,160,000,000,000,000 kg; I don't think its possible to release that much CO2 by burning fossil fuel over the next century, do you? Simple due diligence demands a prescription must be tested before it's used. The FDA experimentally tests every drug prescribed, why have a lower standard for climate?
I just did a rough calculation based on oil consumption alone and got a figure that was about half of that figure. Add in the CO2 from coal and natural gas and you might have that amount.

There's no evidence our CO2 emissions cause harm.

It would be nice if there were some other planet where we could observe the effects of greenhouse gases on its atmospheric temperatures. There has to be one nearby, I just know it! If anyone knows of one I'll be happy to plant one Jupiter fly trap plant in my back yard for you! Or is that Saturn? I can't remember.

This quality debate shows why teaching critical thinking in science class is a good idea.

It's too late, you never learned it, nor will your kids get it.

My arguments focus on the issues; I don't use ad hominem arguments like T.D.

Single subject experimental tests have been demonstrated; don't blame me that climate scientists don't have experimental tests for climate change mitigation.

Incorrect. Your proposed law is nothing but an ad-hom, you simply are not able to handle critical thinking towards your own position. Like I said, ironic.
