Keep Indoctrination out of Wyoming Schools

This Letter to the Editor was published in the Wyoming Tribune Eagle on April 23, 2014 (albeit with a different and inaccurate title). 

We should congratulate Wyoming’s legislature for defunding the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). The NGSS are biased and riddled with propaganda designed to indoctrinate students and drive an eco-agenda.

What does the NGSS teach? In its Core Ideas section, it states: “However, it is clear not only that human activities play a major role in climate change but also that impacts of climate change—for example, increased frequency of severe storms due to ocean warming—have begun to influence human activities.”

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), in its Fifth Assessment Report released March 31, 2014, significantly downplayed its storm-increase alarmism, albeit in a vague manner, when stated: “There is low confidence in region-specific projections of storminess and associated storm surges.”

A decreased frequency of severe storms is the likely reason. Researchers at Flor­ida State Universi­ty concluded that the 2007 and 2008 hur­ricane seasons repre­sented the lowest lev­el of tropical activity in the Northern Hemisphere in 30 years. In fact, 2013 was the first Atlantic Hurricane season with no hurricanes since 1994.

NGSS also state: “By the end of grade 8. Human activities, such as the release of greenhouse gases from burning fossil fuels, are major factors in the current rise in Earth’s mean surface temperature (global warming).”

However, we have had no increase in global temperatures for the past 17 years. According to Nature Magazine, normally a global warming cheerleader, “Average global temperatures hit a record high in 1998 — and then the warming stalled.

Wyoming’s legislature was right to reject NGSS indoctrination. We must keep partisan political views out of Wyoming’s schools.
