Tennessee Law Will Allow Teachers to Challenge Climate Science
In a state famous for putting evolution on trial in the 20th century, teachers will now be able to avoid instructing students on the science behind global warming

Who the hoo-haw is ClimateWire? Was ever a byline so daft? A pressure group gets credit?
Worst case scenario?: Some smart alec student might ask why celebs jet around the globe, asking poor folk to use less fuel.
Anyway, we are told,
Gov. Bill Haslam (R) of Tennessee declined to act on a measure yesterday that would formally allow teachers to challenge “the teaching of some scientific subjects,” including global warming, evolution and human cloning. Without the governor’s signature, the bill becomes law by default later this month.
Should have been tomorrow dawn, really.
