Princeton physicist: There’s a ‘cult’ building around climate scientists
The Heartland Institute, a libertarian nonprofit organization, has sent mailings discrediting the scientific consensus on climate change to thousands of teachers nationwide. Credit: Rhett Allain via Twitter. Science teachers and legislators are fighting back after a conservative advocacy organization mailed false information on climate science to thousands of school science teachers nationwide. After the Heartland Institute began a mass mailing of teaching materials denying the scientific consensus on climate change , lawmakers and teachers' organizations have raised the alarm over what they characterize as propaganda disguised as information. These statements are false , as is the book's contention that the overwhelming majority of scientists do not agree on the manmade cause of global warming. The National Science Teachers Association NSTA , a professional organization representing 55, teachers nationwide, sent a letter to its members calling on them to resist what they characterized as an "unprecedented attack.
The report misrepresents the fact that nearly all climate scientists agree about human-driven climate change. The packets were sent by the Heartland Institute, which in the s specialized in arguing that second-hand smoke does not cause cancer. At the National Center for Science Education , we have almost three decades of experience helping teachers, parents, and students facing creationism in the classroom. A few years ago, we added climate change to our docket. So teachers know that when issues regarding evolution or climate change come up, NCSE is there to help.
The debate over global warming is the most consequential public policy debate taking place today in the United States and around the world. The stakes are enormous. According to some scientists, stabilizing the climate would require reducing carbon dioxide emissions 80 percent or even more by the middle of the century. Most scientists do not believe human greenhouse gas emissions are a proven threat to the environment or to human well-being, despite a barrage of propaganda insisting otherwise coming from the environmental movement and echoed by its sycophants in the mainstream media. More reliable research shows the science community is deeply divided and unsure about the causes and consequences of climate change.
The global warming controversy is an ongoing dispute about the effects of humans on global climate and about what policies should be implemented to avoid possible undesirable effects of climate change. The current scientific consensus on climate change is that recent warming indicates a fairly stable long-term trend, that the trend is largely human-caused, and that serious damage may result at some future date if steps are not taken to halt the trend.
