Major Error Leads to AGW Book Withdrawal

Interesting. Laurie David is the environmentalist psycho-woman recently implicated in the tabloids as having an affair with Al Gore, which allegedly led to Gore’s separation from his wife of 40 years, Tipper. No clue if that’s true, but David and Gore are good buddies and share the same warped, doomsday beliefs.

More and more people are rejecting this ridiculous global warming garbage. I recommend to all parents that you deprogram your children (as I’ve done with my own) when they come home with that global warming fear garbage scared into them by the socialist school teachers.

Also note how they’re going to stop using the hyperbolic DeCaprio video that blames “global warming” on man’s “addiction to oil.”

Millard Public Schools will stop using a children's book about global warming -- but only until the district can obtain copies with a factual error corrected.

A review committee, convened after parents complained, concluded that author Laurie David's book, "The Down-to-Earth Guide to Global Warming," contained "a major factual error" in a graphic about rising temperatures and carbon dioxide levels.

Mark Feldhausen, associate superintendent for educational services, this week sent a letter to parents who complained, including the wife of U.S. Rep. Lee Terry of Nebraska, outlining the committee's findings.

"Although the authors have pledged to correct the graph in subsequent editions, the committee recommends that this correction be made to all MPS-owned texts before using it with students in the future," Feldhausen wrote.

Corrected versions will continue to be used in Millard's sixth-grade language arts curriculum, he wrote.

However, the district will cease to use a companion video about global warming, narrated by actor Leonardo DiCaprio, he wrote.

The committee found the video "without merit" and recommended that it not be used.
