4:05 From my asst. Elizabeth Whitman: The right-wing Heartland Institute, funded by the Koch brothers as well as top corporations, will develop curriculum that will teach children in elementary school that man-made climate change is a "major scientific controversy." A senior fellow at the institute told ThinkProgress Green, "We are concerned that schools are teaching climate change issues in a manner that is not consistent with sound science and that is designed to lead students to the erroneous belief that humans are causing a global warming crisis. We hope that our efforts will restore sound science to climate change education and discourage the political propaganda that too often passes as ‘education’."
