Telling kids the world will end in 12 years unless we do something is NOT teaching science.

That does NOT make it ok that not every teacher scares the kids.
No teacher of science should be telling kids the world will end in 12 years due to climate change.
That is not science and should not be in any k-12 science curriculum.

I didn’t see the statement but there are some extreme overstatements, that doesn’t dismiss the overwhelming science behind climate change.

Teachers should stick to the science and not predictions.

Fortunately they still have parents. My kids would shoot down some of the left wing loon teachers in highschool.


In college, they kept their mouths shut so that the loons would not tank their grades.

Eh, religious folks force their kids to church, to be indoctrinated into ancient mythologies. At least climate change is based on science.
