Soooooo, I'm not sure why we would expect "open debate" on any topic of real concern in our classrooms. At any rate, Global warming is real. However, the largest companies on the planet sells cars and gasoline. The rest burn coal and invent money out of a debt (we call them banks). And then there's Walmart.

NC is a political safe haven for one of the largest coal burning/nuclear power producers in North America. Nuff said...
At a time when the cost of electricity generated from solar is cheaper than electricity produced from natural gas.

"The price of large scale solar PV power plants has plunged to another record low as the latest auction for 800MW of solar capacity in the Gulf oil emirate of Dubai attracted the first ever bids below 3c/kWh ($US30/MWh).

The record was set in a bid from a consortium comprising Abu Dhabi renewable energy developer Masdar and Spanish developer FRV, which was acquired by Saudi Arabia’s Abdul Latif Jameel (ALJ) group in 2015, and which has built two large scale solar farms in Australia – the 20MW Royalla facility in the ACT and the 56MW Moree solar farm in NSW.

The bid of 2.99c/kWh (unsubsidised) beats all available fossil fuel options in Dubai, and astonishingly, is one half of the cost of a similar auction a year ago, when a winning bid of 5.84c/kWh by Saudi Arabia’s ACWA Power stunned the industry.

Since that time, however, the cost of solar has continued to plunge, with records being set in Chile, Peru and most recently Mexico, where Italian power giant Enel recently bid a price of 3.6c/kWh. In the US, solar tenders now regularly dip below 3c/kWh, although these include a 30% tax incentive and other subsidies."

Not to derail this thread, but the explanation behind some crop circles has been peer reviewed.

Scientific Studies Confirm: "Crop Circles Are Made by Balls of Light” | Humans Are Free.

Radar data has also confirmed the phenomenon, but the scientific community will not touch the evidence that credible witnesses have collected.

Keep in mind that the scientific community can not over-step what governments and religious powers allow them to make public. This was true back in the days of the flat-Earth theory and the idea that Earth was the center of our universe. Scientists were killed when they presented evidence against those bogus theories. I'm of the opinion that some things still aren't open for honest scientific research.
