    One big problem.

    Most of the 'opposing views' on global warming and climate change have no basis in actually science... so, showing them in a science classroom would be counter-productive and only confuse the students.

    Fine then, we'll present those opposing views that are backed by science.

    LOL Yeah right. We have open fraud in England, every one of Gore's predictions that have hit a date have failed. We have studies written by college students being submitted as evidence by the UN. Temperature stations next to airports or over air conditioners to be considered accurate. The hockey stick fraud admitted a fraud by the very scientist who proposed it.

    Wake up and read something other than Media matters.
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    You forgot to mention all those scientist that the IPCC and the UN said agreed with them, and were cited by them, who ahem *disagree* with them. Just the tip of the supposedly doomed ice berg. Well except in hazelnut-land, which has been demonstrated to have a lot to do with the kind of real estate Fred Rodgers sold.

    Well, you're talking about a different level. College professors and k-12 teachers are different. In college, hearing different views should be a desired goal. Everyone should challenge their assumptions in college. I went to a Catholic college and those radical nuns taught me this was true.

    For someone who loves slant as much as you do, I'm amazed how often you complain about it.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
