EPA Wants Global Warning Myth Taught In Schools

    Do not think about, write about or deal with  human behavior without determining the effects of incentives.

      One of the defining signs of a shared delusion is that people make things up and then have involved discussions about their imagined contrivances. Psychiatry, psychology and social work have all been doing this for hundreds of years. Here’s another example. The Elite has made up the horror of Man Made Global Warning and now discusses the implications of the thing that does not exist. Fascinating to watch except that pursuing this myth has involuntarily cost me a few thousand dollars. Government in action. Green Energy forever. As they say in psychiatry, delusions do not only affect those with the delusions.

EPA Chief: Teach Global Warming in Schools
Gina McCarthy wants children to have an understanding of climate science, but current policy leaves plenty of students without it.

August 8, 2014 Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Gina McCarthy wants schools to include climate science in their curricula.

Irish America magazine scored an interview with McCarthy, who grew up in a Boston area family with Irish roots. In one question, she was asked whether climate change should be part of the educational system.

"Very much so," she replied. "I think part of the challenge of explaining climate change is that it requires a level of science and a level of forward thinking and you’ve got to teach that to kids.

     “Science,” in this case, only means “my delusion,” not fact. “Forward thinking” means shared delusion of liberals who believe everything must be forced for the good of those forced.

"People didn’t have a sense of how dramatic climate change really is, and what it means for all of us. So that’s been a challenge. But what’s great about renewables is that when you put a solar panel on the roof of a school, you change the entire dynamic of education for the students. It’s hands-on," she continued.

     How will these people retreat from this position?  If the rest of the year has normal temperatures in North America, this will be the coldest year in recorded history. How will they get out of that one?

Among climate scientists and those who heed their consensus, McCarthy’s sentiment is noncontroversial. The basic conclusion—that the climate is changing and that human activity is largely driving it—is overwhelmingly supported by peer-reviewed research.

    Except that it isn’t. Man Made Global Warning is only supported by governments and their allies.

EPA spokesman Tom Reynolds said via Twitter that McCarthy supports teaching climate science in schools, just as she supports teaching reading and math.

     Well there’s a flaw in the argument. Government schools don’t teach reading and math. They just hope and pretend they do.

But McCarthy’s comment comes amid a broader debate over the role of climate in the classroom, and a patchwork of existing science standards has created massive disparities in how global warming is taught in classrooms around the country.

A coalition that includes the National Science Teachers Association and the American Association for the Advancement of Science is seeking adoption of new standards that would require educators to inform students that human activity is the primary driver of global warming.

But the effort has faced pushback in conservative states like Wyoming, where state legislators voted to block adoption of the standards due to controversy over the climate-change provisions.

Elsewhere in the interview, McCarthy said that EPA’s proposed rule to slash carbon emissions from power plants has been a boost to international climate policy talks:

"I just met with Edward Davey, the U.K. secretary of state for energy and climate, and he told me that the tone and tenor of the international discussions has changed because of the U.S. proposal on clean power plants and plan to cut back on carbon emissions. It shows a strong level commitment from [the U.S.,] one of the largest greenhouse gases emitters, about making reductions that are necessary." she said.

     The discussion of this myth occurs at the “highest level” of governments. In this case, the highest level of governments does not imply high level of intellectual accomplishment.  I wonder how much she makes per year to be wrong?
