Connecticut Public Schools to Mandate Climate Doctrine

Some ideas are so bad they have to be made mandatory or they would fade away. An example is leftist climate ideology, which is to be mandated in Connecticut public schools:

The requirement follows in the footsteps of New Jersey, which in 2020 became the first state to mandate K-12 climate change education across its school districts.

Currently, nearly 90% of public schools across Connecticut include climate change studies in their curriculums. However, by mandating it as part of state law from grades five to 12, climate education will effectively become protected from budget cuts and climate-denying political views…

Use of the mendacious term “climate denying” identifies the original source as liberal establishment. “Climate deniers” deny only that the climate is a problem and can be controlled by Big Government. Liberals deny that the climate will always fluctuate no matter what we do.

“The conservative turn in our country … often starts at a very hyper-local level of local town boards of education. There is this push towards anti-intellectualism, anti-science … anti-reason, and I didn’t want local boards of education to have the power to overturn the curriculum and say, ‘climate change is too political,’” Connecticut state representative Christine Palm told the Guardian.

If only her delusions were real. A conservative turn in the country would be wonderful. If liberals really did side with science, we could disabuse them not only of their climate ideology but also of pernicious transgender lunacy.

Even schools that preach global warming hysteria don’t teach it enough, according to Palm.

“Anecdotally, I knew that there was no uniform approach and that I felt there should be,” Palm explained.

A uniform approach to instilling uniform erroneous opinions is liberalism in a nutshell. If Palm didn’t work for the government, she would be in either education or the media.

Science teachers who don’t want to preach propaganda will face the same fate the Defense of Marriage Act will inevitably inflict on priests who don’t want to commit blasphemy by presiding over gay weddings.

The damage to young minds has already been considerable:

A global survey conducted last year amongst 10,000 children and young people across ten countries, including the US, found that 59% of respondents were very or extremely worried about the climate crisis. Over 50% reported feeling emotions including sadness, anxiousness, anger, powerlessness and guilt. Seventy-five percent of respondents said that they think the future is frightening.

This politically exploitable angst has been created over a problem that is entirely fanciful.

Lest anyone think this really is about the weather:

Lauren Madden, a science educator and professor at the College of New Jersey … stresses the importance of equity-focused conversations when discussing the climate crisis in classrooms.

“Equity” is a euphemism for neo-Marxism.

“We have to acknowledge that climate change does not affect all people equally … There are kids in lower-income communities, communities of color and immigrant communities that experience flooding and power outages and things like that … in a much more magnified way than others,” she said.

If you can believe that weather has suddenly become a problem, you can believe that it is more of a problem for groups that enjoy leftist favor.

Madden keeps barking:

“It’s critical that when we’re talking to kids at that upper elementary, middle school, high school level, we’re ensuring that we are coming from an equity-based perspective.”

Of course it is. Otherwise, there would be no point pretending that the climate is a crisis.
