Wyoming Schools Won’t Teach Climate Change to Protect the Oil and Coal Industry Causing Climate Change
Sure. Raise a generation of science-illiterate students. What could go wrong? Oh... right... everything.
Schools in Wyoming are the first to reject the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) that include lessons on, among other things, climate change. Why? Lawmakers say it's because teaching climate change would turn kids against Wyoming's coal and oil industry (which are causing climate change.) They're probably right.
