A petition with 600 signatures was presented to the Mesa County school board in Colorado state, asking that teachers present a “balanced” view of global warming in the science classrooms. Balanced Education for Everyone (BEE) is behind the petition and has chosen the Mesa County school board as a national test case for banning the teaching of human caused global warming in the classroom or at least to present anthropogenic global warming as a political opinion rather than well-established scientific consensus. So far, the school board has accepted the petition, but has not yet taken action. Check out this Denver Post article with more details about the situation.
This sounds eerily similar to the “teach the controversy” issue about teaching creationism/intelligent design alongside evolution in public schools.
