The scourge of falsehoods has now reached American college campuses.
The Weather Channel reports “ A resolution passed by the Portland, Oregon, school board will eliminate words like ‘may,’ ‘might’ and ‘could’ from the district’s curriculum.
But it’s not English lessons where these words will cease to appear; rather, it’s in science classes, in the context of climate change and its causes.
Recently, the Portland Public School board unanimously passed a resolution which directs schools to “abandon the use of any adopted text material that is found to express doubt about the severity of the climate crisis or its root in human activities”.
The resolution broadly calls for all Portland schools to “develop an implementation plan for climate literacy”.
