SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — California schools may soon be required to teach about the causes and effects of climate change under a bill introduced on Monday.

Assemblymember Luz Rivas (D-Arleta) says under AB 1922, “climate change education will be a coursework requirement for students in grades 1 through 6, and a graduation requirement for students in grades 7 through 12, starting 2025.”

If adopted, the bill would require California schools to adopt the climate change coursework no later than the 2021-22 school year. Additionally, since the bill would create new duties for school districts, it would also constitute a state-mandated local program.

Rivas said in a press release, that parents would also be impacted by the legislation. A study by the Nature Climate Change found parents’ concern for climate change “significantly increased” when their children were taught about it in school.

    Government mandated indoctrination has been going on since the at least the 80’s…it gave us cultural relativism, political correctness, and then started in on promoting racial/cultural identity as being the most relevant part of any person. Promoting the fraud of climate change is hardly surprising. The goal of today’s left is to gain absolute power and then destroy their opposition. Their mentors are people like Josef Stalin, Mao, and Pol-Pot. Bernie’s folks are already promoting re-education camps for those engaging in wrong-think.

    “In all countries, in all centuries, the primary reason for government to set up schools is to undermine the politically weak by convincing their children that the leaders are good and their policies are wise.” ~ Marshall Fritz
    “And what is a good citizen? Simply one who never says, does or thinks anything that is unusual. Schools are maintained in order to bring this uniformity up to the highest possible point. A school is a hopper into which children are heaved while they are still young and tender; therein they are pressed into certain standard shapes and covered from head to heels with official rubber-stamps.” ~ H.L. Mencken
    “Governments have ever been known to hold a high hand over the education of the people. They know, better than anyone else, that their power is based almost entirely on the school. Hence, they monopolize it more and more.” ~ Francisco Ferrer
    “Wherever is found what is called a paternal government, there is found state education. It has been discovered that the best way to insure implicit obedience is to commence tyranny in the nursery.” ~ Benjamin Disraeli

    This is all fine, But with people still having 4-6 kids what about the effect of the population on our climate? What about population effect on our natural resources, pollution?

  8. NoName4Now says:

    This will be taught by transgenders? Or is everyone still racist?

  9. Bick R. says:

    WOKE California. Climate has been changing for almost 4billion years.

    You can’t make this leftist idiocy up!

  11. Sean says:

    Further evidence that we live in a fascist totalitarian one party State.

  12. Allie Foster says:

    Stupidity runs rampant in California. Thank God I do not live in that bastion of insanitiy!!!!

    More state sponsored political indoctrination. Are they going to teach Al Gore’s version where New York was flooded out 20 years ago and Micronesia ceased to exist? How about 10 years ago when snow went extinct and the polar ice cape was lost to history? Is climate change hysteria and failed predictions going to be part of the curriculum too?

  14. The teachers could lecture on how the “Climate Change” movement is just propaganda aimed at controlling people’s lives!

  15. Hundreds of scientists endorsed an “Open Letter to Pope Francis on Climate Change” that dispels the fears of dangerous global warming. See https://cornwallalliance.org/anopenlettertopopefrancisonclimatechange/.

  16. Excellent idea. Children need to learn the science about how the biosphere, atmosphere, hydrosphere, and geosphere all impact each other.

    What is there to teach for 12 years? All they have to say is CO2 bad. Orange Man bad. Becuase we say so.
