Just wonderful - Dept of Education gets involved in Climate Science

| No Comments
The declining stats show just how effective the Department of Education is regarding the performance of our students and our students' ranking compared worldwide (in the terlit for both). Now they deign to teach the "settled science" for which there is "consensus". From CNS News:
U.S. Education Dep�t Pushes Man-Made Global Warming, Saving the Earth at Children�s Reading Event
During a July event at the U.S. Department of Education, children from D.C. schools and day care centers were treated to free books, including two featuring Nickelodeon characters as part of the media organization�s �The Big Green Help� Series. One of the books promotes the idea that global warming is man made and the second book talks about what kids can do to save the Earth.

SpongeBob Goes Green! An Earth-Friendly Adventure! tells the story of SpongeBob�s friend, Krusty Krab, who builds a swimming pool. Mr. Krab is frustrated that it is not hot enough to attract paying customers to his new swimming pool and decides that the exhaust from boats and cars could solve his dilemma.

Mr. Krab says: �I�m just pumpin� a wee bit of carbon dioxide into the air. It�ll warm up the temperature and bring on an endless summer! People will want to use my new pool all year long.�

To help with his cause, SpongeBob and his friend Patrick set stacks of tires on fire.

�More smoke floated up into the sky,� the book states.
Start the indoctrination while they are young and don't know any better. If the Federal government was serious about cutting its spending, eliminating the Department of Education would be a fantastic place to start. Signed into existence on October 17, 1979 (Jimmy Carter's watch), it has about 5K employees with a 2011 budget total of $71.5 Billion with an additional $135 Billion in student loans. 2010 was $56 Billion and $96 Billion loans (27% increase for spending and 40% increase for loans over the span of one year). (US Whitehouse FY2011 budget --page 63-68 of this 192 page PDF file). If this plant food dangerous greenhouse gas were a serious issue, I could maybe see a reason to get the word out but this is purely agenda driven and downright shoddy work and does nothing but sow FUD (Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt) into the minds of little children.
