A Silicon Valley lawmaker is gaining momentum with a bill that would require “climate change” to be among the science topics that all California public school students are taught.

The measure, by state Sen. Joe Simitian, D-Palo Alto, also would mandate that future science textbooks approved for California public schools include climate change.

“You can’t have a science curriculum that is relevant and current if it doesn’t deal with the science behind climate change,” Simitian said. “This is a phenomenon of global importance and our kids ought to understand the science behind that phenomenon.”

The state Senate approved the bill, SB 908, Jan. 30 by a 26-13 vote. It heads now to the state Assembly.

Since when did it become a good idea to teach children unproven hypotheses in place of facts? If this isn’t indoctrination in the public schools, I don’t know what is.

What to do: if you live in California, use The Mailbox to contact your state legislators. Encourage them to vote “no” on SB 908.
