    31,000 scientists? It was an internet survey with NO VERIFICATION of any credentials. They included anyone who had a bachelor's degree as a scientist (and even that wasn't verified).

    Of the 31,000 "scientists", only 9,000 had doctorates, and the majority of them were medical doctors with no background in climate sciences whatsover. 31,000 scientists (some dead) refute global warming | Yahoo! Green

    The Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine (OISM), who created the "petition" also markets a home-schooling kit for "parents concerned about socialism in public schools" and publishes books on how to survive nuclear war. Yeah right, screw global warming, we have to worry about socialism in schools. I'm sure the science is their main motivation.

    Global warming is real, and I am worried about socialism in our schools. These positions are not mutually exclusive.

    I'm not worried about global warming, but I am worried about socialism in America. We'll see which one has a stronger foothold in 20 years.

    Is the idea of public education in itself too socialist for you? What rise of socialism in our schools are you guys referring too?

    The planet melting is a bit more serious than "socialism". I'm more worried about the socialism bailing out corrupt banks and corporations that used predatory lending practices on the poorest segment of the population.

    Oh yes, I'd be the first one in the worry line, if there were anything to worry about here. *yawn* I'd honestly love it if someone sicked hit squads on anyone who cut down a tree in the Amazon, but global warming? *yawn.*

    Well most people that actually have PHDs in climate related sciences seem to think there is something to worry about. I guess for those that have it all figured out, such as yourself, there is no need to worry.

    So can you tell me more about this - socialism in schools - that we SHOULD be worried about, or was that comment a joke?

    That's the reason I think AGW is real too.

    I think the idea is that many of the teachers in public school (at least while I was going) talk about socialism and "lower case c" communism in language and tones that could lead impressionable children to believe these things are good (though none of my socialism favoring teachers offered reason, they were simply stating their opinions).

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.
