GREEN RIVER, Wyo. – Climate Parents is a national group that is involved in climate and social justice campaigns across our nation. They have recently targeted our state, claiming that “Wyoming is for coal over kids.” They have even posted this message on their Facebook page banner. They have also posted several press releases that smear the words of our State School Board Chairman and other elected leaders. They are attempting to influence decisions made by Wyoming citizens regarding the Next Generation Science Standards and their views on anthropogenic climate change. Climate Parents wants this taught as an accepted scientific fact.
Climate Parents and Citizens Engagement Lab are out of Berkeley, CA and New York, NY. They have had representatives on-site at a public meeting held in Casper prior to the SBE Meeting concerning the NGSS. The Wyoming Legislature defunded the implementation of the NGSS because of the outpouring of citizens’ voices. These voices were not just concerned about the teaching of climate, but the quality of the standards overall with weak content that was given a “C” rating by the Fordham Institute. This along with teaching anthropogenic climate change and Darwinian Evolution as settled science is the reason parents spoke up in Wyoming.
Lisa Hoyos is the co-founder of Climate Parents. Her bio on KeyWiki states, “In the mid 1990s Lisa Hoyos served on the Board of Directors Oakland based Institute for Social and Economic Studies- sponsor of Cross Roads magazine, which sought to promote dialogue and building new alliances among progressives and leftists… and to bring diverse Marxist and socialist traditions to bear while exploring new strategies and directions for the progressive political movements.”
Chicken little............the sky is falling, the sky is falling! I wonder if they burned all of the copies of the childrens story about chicken little?
Put them in the dictionary next to gullible and stupid.
See how stupid and foolish these nuts are? Save our kids should mean balance our budget since climate change is about nature and not about man! We should send them Jesse Ventura's documentary on the facts about climate change and title it, enough said!
It is so sad we have few that have integrity or support honor anymore! It is a natural happening. We also note that scientists have told us that even our ozone layer was repairing itself and scientists were shocked!
The latest by these nuts, I mean in the EPA is to ban wood burners! This means outside and inside types! Just keep voting for these Marxist fools and get more of the same! Do not vote Democrat as there is no such thing anymore... they are full blown Marxist with no absolute morals as all is relative to them!
THE COMMUNIST CONTROLLED UN ANNOUNCED TODAY THAT POLUTION IS THE HIGHEST IN A BILLION YEARS, A BILLION YEARS? THE TORAH GOES BACK 5700 YEARS. DID THE UN COUNT DINOSAUR FLATULENTS? THIS IS ANOTHER SCHEME TO RIP OFF TAX RICH AMERICANS.
YOU WANT TO SEE GLOBAL WARMING? GET A PICTURE OF IRANIAN NUKE TESTS OR ANY NUKE TEST. THAT IS WHAT WE NEED TO WORRY ABOUT.
These are types of scare-tactic posters that the zealots show children, along with filling their little heads with outrageous horror fabrications. All of their scary fairy tales typically imply that their short time on this earth is now even further limited. They not only realize the absolute importance of scaring kids, they more than likely enjoy giving children many unnecessary nightmares. What else can one expect from these crazy Climate Cultists?
Usually my hunches prove correct but not in this case. Searching for here resume' I found an attractive young woman with two young children appearing to be Hispanic. Normally these 'Enviro Zealots' are one and the same with the 'Over-Population Paranoids' - no children, most not married. Telling tho is she is a "Senior Field Representative for the AFL/CIO". She lives in Fran San Frisco and went to Berkeley
POLITICS BEHIND CAP & TRADE
THE RICH WILL GET RICHER
Cap & Trade is being imposed on the world because it creates a multi-trillion dollar commodity market for hot air. The beneficiaries are the rich special interest who will get wealthier setting up and trading the new commodities market. But citizens will pay more taxes to operate new regulatory bureaucracies and more for goods as business passes the cost along.
TROUBLING IMPLEMENTATION QUESTIONS
How many CO2 credits will be distributed worldwide, $13 - 15 trillion? How will the process be audited to prevent outright fraud?
Who gets to decide how many CO2 credits each business or person should receive?
Should sovereign nations or the UN tax this new one world currency?
If a business in California closes and sells CO2 credits to a company in England, will a new California company be required to purchase credits before opening?
Will multi-national companies export new construction and jobs to 3rd world non-subscribing countries? Or will people of the Amazon miss out on new opportunities because an American company bought thousands of acres to be left unexploited to acquire carbon sequestration credits.
Does a growing population mean a lower standard of living and reduced CO2 allotments for each new person or business?
Should children be allowed to inherit their parents CO2 permits? Should couples be limited to two children?
Countries like China that do not agree to regulation or countries that under regulate will have a real advantage in the market place.
IS MAN CAUSING GLOBAL WARMING
If so how do you explain the age of dinosaurs? Fred Flintstone must have had one hell of a fleet of Hummers!
But according to science, Earth has had multiple tropical and glacial ages. So historically isn’t global warming a cyclical event more affected by sun spot cycles?
And NASA says oceans are cooling since 2003.
Furthermore, the most prevalent hot house gas is water vapor. Should citizens of earth try to stop the rain cycle?
I am against Cap and Trade in the best of times but it is national suicide to implement this costly new program when America's economy is teetering on the brink! The only sustainable Cap and Trade is handing their Caps to politicians who vote yes on the issue and trading them for new representatives!
Poverty is the worst form of pollution. Otherwise, why are the undeveloped nations in Copenhagen demanding redistribution of wealth from the developed nations? And who will these nations turn to when America is destroyed?
Politics and not science will determine the outcome of this debate!
Climate Change.......I call it WEATHER!!!!
Their is that Agenda 21 N.W. O phrase Settled Scince!!!!!!! , Sience Can Never be a settled thing it's a study of ,not a set factual thing, the Earth has been constantly evolveing and changing since the Dawn of Time, Just whene you think you under stand something else comes into play proveing that your were wrong. any stupied progressieve that ever opened a book would no that.
