The Portland Public Schools board voted last week to ban any materials that cast doubt on climate change, the Portland Tribune reported.
According to the resolution passed May 17, the school district must remove any textbooks and other materials that suggest climate change is not occurring or that says human beings are not responsible for it.
“A lot of the text materials are kind of thick with the language of doubt, and obviously the science says otherwise,” said Bill Bigelow, a former Portland public school teacher who worked to present the resolution. Bigelow says textbook publishers are yielding to pressure from fossil fuels companies. “We don’t want kids in Portland learning material courtesy of the fossil fuel industry.”

One commenter to the Portland Tribune story responded to the news, saying, “I have never seen a case for homeschooling more clearly put forward. This is further proof that public schools are not interested in education, only political indoctrination.”
As a side note from me (admin) note that what scientists there are supporting the AGW theory are suspect as biased because their lucrative research funding comes from promoting fear of AGW. they support it because they are supported by it. The literature is rife with “adjusted” data, missing data and outright lies. Many top scientists disagree that warming is significant or even undesirable. One thing that most people agree about is that the proposed remedies won’t make any significant difference. see also the discussion of “90% Certainty”, Hot Air, Publication Bias and Perverse Optimism: at http://politicallycorrecteconomics.com/
