Page from WV Coal Association coloring book, "Let's Learn About Coal" [Update: Sanity prevailed. See end of post]So here is some not-yet-the-worst-news news: After getting caught rewriting the state's science education standards to include misinformation on climate change, the West Virginia Board of Education now says it will reconsider the changes. Members of the board who made the changes insisted they had not been influenced by the state's coal industry, as they wiped soot off their hands and kicked a filthy gray towel under the couch.

All this sciency stuff in West Virginia skools is cutting into banjo practice also too.
<i> &ldquo;We shouldn&rsquo;t be having a standard that implies there&rsquo;s just a steady rise in temperature, as opposed to what the data shows, which is the temperature rises and falls all the time.&rdquo;</i>
I could explain to him the once-yearly decreases, but then I&#039;d have to make him believe that the Earth <strike>moves around the Sun, and not the other way around</strike> is round.
And all of that within the last 6000 years! It&#039;s truly a miracle!
I&#039;m happy I clicked the NYT link, because this L. Wade Linger, Jr., guy looks just like the maniac from <a href="https:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch\?v=QrGrOK8oZG8" target="_blank">Too Many Cooks.</a>

&quot;Mr. Linger, who is a technology entrepreneur, said he had come to his conclusions about warming after doing research on the Internet&quot;
His extensive research has also led to a number of innovative changes to the Health Education curriculum. Sex Ed classes will now include clips from &quot;Saving Ryan&#039;s Privates&quot;, &quot;Star Whores Episode III: The Clone Whores&quot; and &quot;Asspocalypto&quot;. The Internet is a wonderful place to gather information.
I watched &quot;The Magic School Bus&quot; with my kid numerous times. Oops, I may be overqualified now.

I&#039;m sure that &quot;Nailin&#039; Paylin&quot; has some shout-outs to science as well.
Love the Cosmos clip, but I think Tyson&#039;s dog got the message more clearly than these goobers did. Someobody needs to clean the coal dust out of their ears.
Rhythm stick percussion.
