Yep, just like when they decided to re-write the history books WITHOUT Thomas Jefferson.

This state is incredibly embarrassing.

I really don't think the image can get any worse.

When you travel around to Dallas, Austin, Houston & San Antonio you quickly learn that these backward politics are not reflective of a large majority of Texas citizens. It's corrupt, backward politics pandering to those they scare into voting for them.

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/09/30/op...t-eddas30.html The New York Times: Was Einstein Wrong?

The theory of relativity is a theory, the theory of gravity is a theory, global warming is an unquestionable fact!

Therefore: global warming is the only true fact in science!!!

Not surprising. Censorship and repressing info that doesn't cater to the viewpoint of the powerful conservative view of anything is officially condoned now.

Maybe the "scientist" does not have a clue and won't listen to reason?

I'm glad we have not had a historical sea level rise. Check out the rise up to 6000 years ago!!

Asymptoting Sea Level Rise | Watts Up With That?

And here is the latest graph using the topex sats. The rise is heat related and is now flat or descending.

New sea level dataset now available – still flat | Watts Up With That?

False!

Remarks like this is embarrassing.

Do you really think a State with a strong Second Amendment background such as Texas would Exempt Thomas Jefferson from their History books? Second thought, you've already answered. Liberals has twisted this so many ways it's unreal. Funny how Liberals could careless about the man until now

The fact is, Texas replaced Thomas Jefferson with Thomas AguInas on the Subject of Enlightenment. Liberals would rather talk about Jefferson's philosophical views which are based off someone else's views instead of his political views such as the Second Amendment. Now Liberal States are forced to teach other more important works by Thomas Jefferson and why the spin on this subject.

I am a "liberal" in many ways who is a staunch supporter of the right to keep and bear arms.

But take a look at glaciers worldwide and the Arctic ice pack and tell me that the climate is not changing. Make that warming.

I just can't understand why people don't get it! More importantly why they would stop a scientist from publishing his research.
