Next Stop for ACE

by Paul Chesser, Heartland Institute Correspondent on September 11, 2009

On Tuesday I reported about the Alliance for Climate Education’s indoctrination efforts of high school students in five metro areas: San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston and Boston. This week ACE is advertising to hire “educators” in their next target city, which is Washington:

ACE is seeking a dynamic, energetic individual to give presentations on climate change to high school students in Washington, D.C. The Senior Educator will eventually be responsible for managing day-to-day operations, fostering relationships with schools and local ENGOs in D.C., and identifying opportunities for and delivering lively, multimedia presentations to students in an assembly format.  The educator is responsible for setting up school appointments, traveling to area schools, conducting presentations to a group of 200+ students and faculty, following-up with students and faculty after presentations, refining/revising program content and working in close collaboration with other staff in realizing ACE’s goals and priorities. The D.C. Senior Educator will also help develop the overall organizational strategy for supporting the collective youth voice and determining how it can be a more relevant part of the overall climate movement.

Just what the public schools exist for: letting advocacy groups in to take kids out of their classes to get recruited for a “movement.”

This has been happening slowly for many years. Now the groups are bolder and advertising their intentions.Is there not something along the same lines in the history books regarding some cultures that we think were bad?

Heartland institute AKA: The coal industry.

Please, if you're going to lie hide the fact you're being paid to.

Anybody remember growing up and learning about environmentalism? Saving our planet by recycling and doing our best to stop ruining our air, water, and soil? Instead republicans and your business allies are working towards teaching our children that all of that is lies though science has explained it in detail why it is the truth.

Your argument is pathetic, but it does make life interesting. When your children grow up and don't believe in science at least they'll be relegated to the parts counter at my local auto parts store.
