Well it's about time!
Students need to be told of all the horrors to come so that they.. er.. well, anyway, what they really need are guiding principles, so here you go:
The Ten Commandments According to the Al Gore
(In truth, there are 11, but that’s Al for you)
1. I am the Al your Gore, creator of the internet; you shall not listen to climate scientists who do not agree with me, for these use data that is unclean and may contain references that fail to fit my master plan.
2. You shall not take the name of the Al, thy Gore in vain.
3. Pay no attention to the emails behind the curtain, for Global Warming is real, and trust me on this – I am completely objective even though Global Warming has made me filthy rich.
4. Remember to keep holy the Earth day: Drive only a Compact Hybrid, and know that I will be watching you from heaven (in my private jet).
5. Honor your father Al and your mother Tipper - You owe us Big Time, for without the Al Gore and his Tipper, the Earth would slip er..
6. You shall not kill - any climate change bills for these are the manna from heaven that sustains the Al Gore and makes Tipper go flipper.
7. You shall not commit adultery, or more importantly, screw me out of carbon credits – I invented the idea, so these belong to the Al Gore alone; But, if you must, go forth and create your own scam.
8. You shall not steal – That is my job.
9. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor, unless he disagrees with human caused global warming, in which case feel free to trash his character.
10. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife because she may have voted for the Al Gore. If not – Covet away!
11. You shall not covet you neighbor's goods, because these will be exchanged for carbon credits (See Commandment #7)
… and when the tablets were completed, the Al Gore looked down upon the millions, dreamed of untold billions, and thought the scam was good.

All this linked to man caused? Hardly! It's all about power, money and control. Enter Algore, the first Billionaire made from junk science.

"It just gives teachers a simple right," he told lawmakers, "to know that they can teach both sides of a controversy objectively, and in a scientific manner, in order to induce critical thinking in their student body."

So who teaches the teacher real science?

"We've heard stories of students who learn about climate change," he says. "Then they go home and tell their parents, and everybody's upset because the parents are driving their kids to the soccer game, and the kids are feeling guilty about being in the car and contributing to this global problem."

There you have it scientific science fiction scare tactics.

Right. Just like Global Cooling with Jimmah Carter. Mr. "Al Gore" Bill is out of his mind. He's an old school con in a modern world. These kids are laughing at people like him. Just ask ManBearPig. He'll tell ya. I'm Super Cereal.

No early spring this year, the weather rodent must have been partying like it's 1999, the night before.
Good luck explaining Al's massage to the children.

And of course the far Right, religious nuts, and big-energy-sponsored folks will do everything they can to keep these facts out of science textbooks.

American education continues to suffer from the far Right's ignorance, bigotry, and religiosity. Time to stop that crapola before we're all as dumb as the righties on these threads.

Now there's the kind of partisan moron I'm talking about. You KNOW someone knows NOTHING about science when the blame warming on Al Gore. It's a certainty.

Almost every post on here is by a Denier, and all but two reference Al Gore.

This is why we need EDUCATION IN AMERICA, folks. Too many morons like these people. Too many people who get their science from Limbaugh, Faux News, or cartoons.

Aren't you concerned that you'll get so whacked out on 1/2-caf-grande-soy-caramel-moc ha-chinos that you'll key your own? Or is that why you went for a hot fuchsia one?

The most likely weather change is a periodical mini ice age. Recorded history is about a couple centuries or so for them. The sun plays a role in our weather and these fruit cakes see everything else except evil men looking for power as conspiracies.

Sad/funny that the rest of the world has moved on from "is there GW", to "what do we do about it as we're faced with science/facts", and these mouth-breathers are still shopping eBay for "good 'ol Freon"

Just as long as they don't call it "global
warming." That sounds like it might be
scientific.

"Climate change" is okay, but global warming is
a socialist conspiracy even though the vast
majority of climate scientists call it
just that.

But, what do scientists know about it?

Your coal-company spokesperson is the expert.

We discussed this in a meeting at school a couple months ago. I guarantee this isn't coming to our school. It is a private school that still teaches Math, Science, English, etc., and no useless fake theories.

It was changed from global warming to climate change as these thieves were stealing others money and love to see people suffer for their benefit. Climate change is from the same people.

Hitler said give me your children until they are 6, and they will be mine forever. The Liberals think if they indoctrinate the young they will have voters later on. It is your responsibility as parents to know what jibberish they are being taught is the state schools. And to correct the nonsense element

Science was around a long time before your fifty year run on the world oh diseased one. You guys are like the the star trek "tellarites" species Spock's father admonished in the original series..."You argue for the sake of arguing", and they make no sense except to demean another".
