Pro-Evolution Group Now Backs Teaching of Climate Change

Friday, 13 Jan 2012 12:30 PM

An organization that has fought for 30 years to keep evolution in the curricula of American schools now plans to offer advice to public school teachers who are under fire for teaching about climate change, reports the Guardian UK.

"We have been getting anecdotal reports for a couple of years now of teachers getting hammered for teaching climate science – just like they did for teaching evolution," said Eugenie Scott, director of the National Center for Science Education.

Proponents of evolution and climate-change education say the two issues have seen some crossover in recent years.

"Evolution is still the big one, but climate change is catching up," Roberta Johnson of the National Earth Science Teachers Association told Science magazine.

Several states are considering bills that would block the teaching of evolution, climate change, stem-cell research, and other controversial topics, notes the Guardian. Louisiana has approved such legislation.
