Evolution Defenders to Fight Climate Skeptics
A national organization best known for its defense of teaching evolution has added climate change to its agenda in a move that highlights a brewing controversy inside the classroom. Across the country, teachers and schools boards are being pressured to teach that the science of climate change is controversial when, in fact, it is not, according to the National Center for Science Education. NCSE notes that mountains of scientific evidence show that the planet is warming and human activities are part of the reason why. That’s not controversial, it says.
