You may (or may not) have heard earlier this week that a change in KY's K-12 curriculum will now mandate that man-caused global warming be taught in schools. It's true. This agenda was pushed thru largely in part to a group of enviromental wackos called "Climate Parents". In addition to indoctrinating our children with junk science, this group also actively seeks to curb carbon emmissions thru...you guessed it...taxation and ever increasing regulation. Just what KY's coal industry needs, huh?

Religion can't be mentioned in school but, apparently hokey science and european-style socialism can. KY school test scores are near the bottom nationally and we are now going to spend time and money teaching garbage like this?

PLEASE contact your state senator or representative and ask them to introduce legislation to find a way overturn this nonsense! I just sent all of mine emails. Please, take 10-15 minutes to do the same. You can look up your representatives here...

More nonsense from the right wing religious loonies. If they had their way, our kids would all be in one room school houses, sharing McGuffy readers and slates while quoting bible verses. And they wonder why US companies prefer to hire foreigners who are far more educated than our own.

And you offer more of the same burned out hippie mentality behind garbage like man-caused global warming. It's nothing more than a politically correct, feel-good mentality with no scientific basis in fact.
It's funny you mention education, because there is nothing about teaching junk like this that could possibly move the bar higher for education in KY.
We know, liberals would prefer courses that teach revisionist history, man-caused global warming and social justice over anything remotely based in reality or fact.
Just one question...do the the kids have to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance to Barack or can they remain seated?

That was from google....There are plenty of scientific facts about this. It is people like yourself who perpetuate crazy is preventing a bright future for our kids. Are you stating that you would be ok living in a room that was full of polution? You would survive and nothing would change about you? Now try to see that on a bigger scale if you can....BTW if you can't educate yourself about issue perhaps it would be easier to be silent so people don't recognize that you are crazy and trying to destroy the world we live in because it may not effect you while you live, but f everyone else after you die.

The Earth is 4.1 billion years old.
Industrialized societies have been around approx. 300 years. It simply is NOT possible that humans could have had any kind of effect on the world-wide climate of Planet Earth in that extremely short period of time.
Hell, humans couldn't even have survived at the time of the largest dinosaurs. There was too much oxygen and other greenhouse gases in the atmosphere!
Why am I not surprised that the EPA and NASA, both now political wings of the Obama European Socialism agenda would be quoted as purveyors of the man-caused global warming hoax?

There is a brilliant article from late last summer that pretty much blows the whole man-caused global warming argument out of the water. Which is kinda ironic because if there ever is any change in the temperature of Planet Earth, water vapor will likely be the cause. Anyway, I've linked the article here...it's most likely the most important one you will ever read on global warming...

So, either the Kentucky Education Cabinet has fallen for this lie or they are complicit in the propagation of the hoax.
hey you all

Yes, your right Much smarter see I can't even write a complete sentence.
But I do know our bible, front to back cause my 4th grade teacher read it every day after lunch!
What did this do to me?
1. I respect others
2. I work hard as I can NEVER taking a handout (welfare)
3. I've never even thought about taking a bomb or weapon to harm others who I do not know! Yes If someone harms my family or country I will use .357 to creek rocks to there head!
4. While working for my employer I never steal or endanger the companies future!
Wonder how your college educated alien is doing for our USA companies now! economy is so good under the rule of your kind!
just a thought from a 50 year old who has endured the bad education system and now just survives on upper income and paid off home!
Oh thanks MS. Estes my 4th grade teacher at Eubank!(rest in peace dear lady!)

Right. And there is no science fact in the theory of man-caused global warming. It's junk, a hoax, poppycock, balderdash, etc.

Remember the Permian extinction. The earth only warmed up about 11 degrees and 95% of life became extinct.

That is just not true. The overwhelming majority of scientist agree that recent climate change IS a direct result of years of carbon dumping into the atmosphere. Rush Limbaugh is not a scientist.

The Earth has warmed and cooled repeatedly over the just the last few hundred thousand years alone. Ever heard of the Ice Age? There have been several.
So, now after only 300 years of industrialization humans have somehow managed to affect what was already in flux for 4.1 billion years???
What temperatures are you global warming freaks basing your argument on? The longest continuous temperature record is the Hadley Centre's Central England Temperature series. It started around 1850. So, 163 years out of 4.1 billion? Do you know how ludicrous that sounds?
Al Gore isn't a scientist either.

Read the article!

And not a single coal fired power plant or gas guzzling SUV to be found on the entire planet at that time.
In the bigger scheme of things on Earth, humans are pretty insignifcant.
Thus, man-caused global warming= COMPLETE FRAUD.

Sure, nobody denies that. But never at the rate we have seen during the last few decades. And there is no natural explanation for the dramatic increase.

As for your link, geez... a political piece written by an economist? Seriously? That article is ridiculous on many levels. I could post thousands of scientific studies, but I doubt you would read any of them because you do not want to accept the frightening reality that we are crapping up our planet.

I am sorry you are scared, but being scared is not a good enough excuse to play stupid and deny the problem. And nobody likes being told what they can and can't do... I get that. But we've got to start addressing the problem, each and every one of us.

A few years back a scientist said cow farts were causing global warming.
10000 years ago parts of Kentucky had a sheet of ice covering it.
This is a natural cycle.
In the 70s we were coming out of a freezing phase.
The sky is not falling.Just some more of the tree hugger BS.
America can not change the world.
I want to know what the tree huggers did, when Hussein set the oil wells on fire.Where were the environmentalist? The only time they get involved,is in the safty of America.If you are really worried about the inviroment,picket in China,or Mexico.America is way ahead of these countries, trying to protect our enviroment.Look at the world map,we are just a small portion of the world.

Yeah, all those educated people think they know so much! Everybody knows that the REAL geniuses and experts can be found here on topix.

Scientists are real "idoits," huh?

What you fail to realize is, those scientist have grants and those grants depent on what they tell the government.
Would you say NASA are a bunch of uneducated,topix fools? Global warming is a hoax.

Again, where is the science to back up your claims? We've only kept temperature records for 163 years!
In the 1970's scientists were warning about a global temperature drop. So, which is it?
The article I linked used scienticic data to come to the conclusion that the whole man-caused global warming theory is nothing more than a scheme to make a few people rich while making the rest of us feel guilty or scared. It's OK to admit you've been wrong liberal friends. You guys are gullible and wracked with guilt over being born in America. We know that but, there is still hope for you.
The only thing I'm frightened of is our children being indoctrinated with a bunch of feel-good, environmentalist-wacko bunk rather than being presented real knowledge.
The "problem" we need to address is actually left-wing loons who believe everything their liberal demi-gods say without any scrutiny. Then we elect people with these agendas and give them power. THAT HAS GOT TO STOP.
Global warming/green energy is a big $$$ business and liberals always love to play the role of victim so, it's kinda 'two birds with one stone' for them.
Man-caused global warming is a complete and utter hoax. Would you intentionally lie to your kids? Of course not so, why teach them lies in our classrooms?
Call or email your KY State Representative or Senator and demand this garbage be thrown out!
