Free Speech Group Slams Portland School’s Ban On Global Warming Skeptic Book

classroomElementary school students continue to get barraged by pro-climate justice warrior propaganda, as a prominent free speech organization claims a Portland, Oregon decision to ban school textbooks authored by global warming skeptics could “undermine public education.”

The Portland Public Schools Board voted to “abandon the use of any adopted text material that is found to express doubt about the severity of the climate crisis or its root in human activities” in an effort to appease green activists who continue to enact fatwas against global warming skeptics.

The move has raised the hackles of anti-censorship group National Coalition Against Censorship (NCAC), which blasted the school board’s decision in a press statement released Friday. NCAC called the decision “dangerously over-broad, potentially affecting a wide range of valuable educational materials.”

The statement went on to explain that such policies only hurt the students by shielding them from ideas on climate change.

“Social studies texts accurately describing the political debate around fossil fuels and climate change, for instance, would presumably contain comments from individuals who ‘express doubt about the severity of the climate crisis,” the statement read. “If such material is excised from the curriculum, will students be prepared to face – and argue with – climate-change denial when they encounter it in the world outside school?”

    What exactly is the “adopted text material ”

    Let’s see what if anything they are referring to . Or are they just full of BS ,bullied by a Green lobby group ?

    Is the greening earth as shown in NASA photos considered an example of “abandoned material ” . Just a bit too much reality for kids to handle perhaps ?

    Any School District so weak to support brain washing doesn’t deserve to have students .

    Let’s see the offending material ? I bet it doesn’t even exist . Let’s see the brain wash material the kids are subjected to .
