Labour pledges to make climate change ‘core part’ of school curriculum 

Posted: May 24, 2019 by oldbrew in climate, Education, Politics, propaganda

UK schools would have to promote one political party’s policies. Whose climate ‘facts’ would they be relying on? ‘Tackling climate change’ may be a popular fantasy in schools but the reality is somewhat different, to say the least.

It has set out plans to ensure all young people are educated in schools about the social and environmental impacts of climate change, reports Energy Live News.

Shadow Education Secretary Angela Rayner has set out plans to ensure all young people are educated in schools about the social and environmental impacts of climate change if the party comes into power.

She says the curriculum would focus on the knowledge and skills needed by young people “in a world that will be increasingly shaped by climate change”, particularly in renewable energy and green technology jobs, with the skills “severely under-represented” in the current curriculum.

The announcement comes as more climate school strikes are hosted across the UK today, with demands to reform the national curriculum to address the ecological crisis as an educational priority – teaching climate change is said to be currently restricted to Chemistry and Geography in Key Stages 3 and 4.

Ms Rayner said: “Today, young people are taking to the streets to send a clear message to the government that climate change will be a fundamental and defining feature of their adult lives and we must take the action needed to tackle it.”

    So can we also have Labour pledge to educate the young about the social and environmental costs of socialism? After all, they are far better documented and far more demonstrable than “Climate Change”.

    This is another sad day for science, where a weak and largely unproven hypothesis becomes dogma for politicians and politically-activist scientists

    Why not teach scepticism and use the current Reproducibility Crisis as the clear and important evidence?.

    The real crisis is the low level of critical thinking within our political establishment….. a life without fossil fuels would be brutal and cold.

    How could this not be indoctrination? They refer to the ‘facts’ as though it’s all cut and dried, when the opposite is the case.

  4. Marxist party wanting to add climate Marxism to educational curriculum. Catch em young Jezza!

    Excuse to finish early on Friday without getting punished…

    School students walk out in global climate strike
    2 hours ago

    They are calling on politicians and businesses to take urgent action to slow global warming.

    Like what? It’s farcical.

    The students remind me of herding sheep. Easily distracted, milling about, bellering to their lost kin. Some few running off on a tangent thinking they know where they’re going. Just the desired condition the Marxist families behind the silk curtain are striving for.

    Will they explain how a radiative gas molecule in the atmosphere traps heat? Also when that same molecule emits photons slightly more than half Will not reach the surface?
    Ah, well, most of those kids will not survive the coming ice age without reliable heat sources.

  8. oldbrew says:

    They will just repeat the usual catchphrases. One man-made molecule per 10,000 in the atmosphere is going to melt the poles and disrupt all the weather systems, or some such absurd evidence-free assertions.

    I thought you Brits were better than us!

    We have allowed our Ed Schools to become politicized with the result that every teacher is trained to use methods that don’t work well for most students such as “Constructivism”, “Whole-Word” reading, “New Math”, “Reform Math”, and “Common Core”.

    Worse still they undermine the institutions that make our country remarkable such as the idea that the state exists to serve the individual rather than the individual to serve the state.

    Our public schools relentlessly undermine the USA as explained here. Sadly, what Peter Hegseth says around minute 4:30 is true for most of our K-12 schools.:

    For a more scholarly critique of Ed Schools in the USA try this:

    A week ago I attended an all day “Workshop” that included adherents of the main political parties in the USA.

    When my turn came to speak I told them that CO2 was not a pollutant but a plant food. Crop yields have increased by 25% over the last 30 years owing to rising CO2 concentrations so we should be encouraging people to buy bigger “Gas Guzzlers”. More CO2 has made plants more drought resistant so that deserts are “Greening ” all around the world.

    My presentation was greeted by much hilarity by Democrats and Republicans alike. Most of the attendees were dumbstruck when the Q&A that followed showed that I was not joking.

    Climate change was supposed to have won the party the Australian election. But yesterday, routed in the polls, panicking Labor Party leaders backed the opening of a coal field bigger than the UK to mining.

    Politicians’ jobs are more important to them than their fake me-too climate concerns, when push comes to shove.
