Re: Children to be given lessons in climate change....

This is why the anti-smoking/anti-drug agendas are so successful here the US. You see ads depicting Marijuana smokers as deadbeats who can't get anything done, and then you meet several who are actually productive members of society. They have their hit (drag, whatever the appropriate word is) at night or on the weekend and go back to work the next day. There really isn't that much difference to the guy going in to get his pint after work. I personally avoid drugs, but lying to children is always a bad idea. You end up with the likes of me. A guy who now suspects any report released by a scientist that sounds in the least bit alarming. "Coffee causes Cancer!," Really, then why the )*#) isn't half the country dead!
