Ian Binns, a science education researcher at Louisiana StateUniversity, told Science that a law such as Louisiana’s, which misdescribes established scientific theories such as evolution as controversial, “tells our students and teachers that there are problems that there aren’t” and distort their understanding of the nature of science;
NCSE’s Joshua Rosenau added, “Science is not about providing balance to every viewpoint that’s out there.” NCSE is now monitoring controversies over the teaching of climate change as well as controversies over the teaching of evolution, but the scope of the problem is as yet unclear; as Rosenau explained, “Just like with evolution, it’s difficult to know what a given teacher in a given classroom is teaching.”
Thing is, they don’t have any track record or street cred in the area; all they can do is add to the squawk.
Are they short of issues? Mney? Supporters? Or what?
Here at UD, we sometimes address climate change, principally to identify agenda-driven science. Think of it as our contribution to public sanity. When people are obliviously jetting the globe to tell the rest of us to walk to work … the world needs all the sane people it can get.
