West Virginia students to be denied science courses because they teach climate change

Climate Change - The West Virginia House of Delegates voted to block new science standards from being implemented for at least another year, due to the fact that they mention climate change as a man-made problem. Proponents of the delay, which was introduced as an amendment to a larger education bill, argued that the new curriculum would have presented the science of climate change without properly reflecting both sides of the global warming debate.

“In an energy-producing state, it’s a concern to me that we are teaching our kids potentially that we are doing immoral things here in order to make a living in our state,” Delegate Jim Butler, (R) told the Charleston Gazette-Mail.

The people of West Virginia need to break the chains that tie them to coal. And Mr Butler is an idiot
