To science teachers attending a recent convention, the comic book about “Simon the solar-powered cat” seemed unremarkable at first. The story began with Simon, an orange-and-white cat, begging for more food in typical feline fashion.
But on page five, the story took an unusual turn: A “friendly scientist” explained that Simon subsisted not on kibble, but on carbon dioxide. The scientist concluded that CO2 was a “miracle molecule” that fueled all life on Earth by helping plants turn sunlight into food.....
While it is true that CO2 helps plants grow, its accumulation in the atmosphere will have net negative effects for plants and people alike, Dessler said. Telling kids they need CO2 to survive, he said, “is like telling a drowning person they need water to survive. It’s not helpful.”
On the second day of the convention, an official with the National Science Teaching Association asked members of the CO2 Coalition to stop distributing their materials or leave, according to a YouTube video uploaded.
“You can take down your literature or you can go home — it’s your choice,” NSTA chief operating officer Ryan Foley says in the video. When Wrightstone refuses to comply, Foley responds, “All right, then you’re being kicked out. You should pack up and get out.”.....
The coalition’s efforts come as some states have failed to update their standards for teaching climate change in public schools, leaving students at risk of learning incorrect ideas.
How teachers are getting it wrong on climate change In a 2020 report, the National Center for Science Education and the Texas Freedom Network Education Fund graded all 50 states on their standards for teaching climate change. The groups examined whether the standards helped students understand that climate change is real, caused by humans, and already affecting nature and society

climate change is real, caused by humans, and already affecting nature and society,
It is also bull merd. This is fascism right here, blatant and evil.. “ While it is true that CO2 helps plants grow, its accumulation in the atmosphere will have net negative effects for plants and people alike, Dessler said. Telling kids they need CO2 to survive, he said, “is like telling a drowning person they need water to survive. It’s not helpful.”

Yes, Climate Change is happening, and humans contribute 0.4% to it. The rest is caused by the sun. There is NOTHING we can do about the sun.
One single volcanic eruption emits more CO2 into the atmosphere than the last 100 years of human activity.
These “teachers” don’t want to mention this. But got to keep the government funding coming in. Without the funding, they have no jobs.
The likes of Michael Piltdown Mann will eventually be revealed as the greatest frauds in the history of the world. They cannot keep the climate lie going on forever.
PS. There has been NO global temperature change in the last nine years. Zero, none, nada!
In 1491, the scientists taught that the Earth was flat.
Man made climate change? NO
“It’s not that liberals aren’t smart, it’s just that so much of what they know isn’t so.”
— Ronald Reagan
Teachers are the some of the lowest intelligence, poorly educated people out there. Keep your children away from anyone that has an Ed degree. They are the enemy.
As fun is that meme is, that’s not true. People knew the earth was curved simply from the realities of sailing the oceans and navigating.
Now, if you’re talking about miasma or the four humors, THEN you’d be onto something...
If they were serious about cutting CO2 they would attack the cannabis industry. Typical 400ppm is increased to 1200-1500ppm to grow marijuana.
"Top climate scientists will go extinct unless we address the problem of climate change!"
It’s A-OK to “bend” the rules when it is their “sacred cow…”
You must have one of those smart shaped heads?
And the ice age never happened, and nobody has ever asked why we spent so much on a fairy tale?
Ditto the "Coming Population Bomb" proffered, again, in the 60s. We were going to be in a dystopian nightmare by ~1980. Mass riots. Global starvation. Soylent Green.
I tried to do a search on your posting history, but your screen name isn’t searchable. You should tell the mods - I bet they can fix it - if you want.
CO2 doesn’t “help” plants grow, it is essential for plant growth.
The whole scam has been taken over by our enemies as a way to get the West to self sabotage. Meanwhile China continues to build coal fired generators.
Those idiots ruined "muscle cars" for two decades. The Dark Ages for car enthusiasts...
At least some of those are starting to be recognized and gain value now, even though they're WAY under-powered.
