We need new legislation to make the practice of indoctrinating students in the latest politically correct movement illegal. Whatever happened to critical thinking? We already are seeing students marked down for not agreeing with their teachers and professors. What happens if a students doesn't agree with the presenters? Are they sent home for violating the global warming hysteria code?

The religious dogma that has indoctrinated the minds of the public by Al Gore's scientifically unsubstantiated claims that Global warming is being caused by human beings and is now being implanted into youthful minds represents the worst in our education system.

Let us be clear. The earth is now indeed warming. It has been warming for at least 500 years. Let us also be clear. Whether human activity is having any measurable impact on global warming is at this time not known. To be preaching the writings of Al Gore to students of high school age is no less objectionable than the Muslin religious leaders indoctrinating the youth in Saudi Arabia. With this kind of education system there will never be any critical thinking.
