Here comes the brainwashing...

...courtesy of the State of California and a public school near you:

Reading, writing and . . . global warming?

A Silicon Valley lawmaker is gaining momentum with a bill that would require "climate change" to be among the science topics that all California public school students are taught.

The measure, by state Sen. Joe Simitian, D-Palo Alto, also would mandate that future science textbooks approved for California public schools include climate change.

Simitian is said to enjoy Grape Kool-Aid

"You can't have a science curriculum that is relevant and current if it doesn't deal with the science behind climate change," Simitian said. "This is a phenomenon of global importance and our kids ought to understand the science behind that phenomenon."

Of course what this numbnuts doesn't get is that California's science curriculum already includes "the science behind climate change". I think this has more do to with any changes that might be occurring in our climate:

And has Simitian actually paid any attention at all to California's climate lately? Sheesh...

You have to stay on top of these "educators". Homeschooling isn't a panacea either. I just left a co-op because they wanted to teach my kid about the history of hate in America, and hold peace workshops, and do social action work. So, out to shop for another group. Or create one.

Maybe I should call it the Grizzly Bears.
