5. The Real Fatal Flaw in His Argument: "Controversial Issues in Science Education"

Evolution is NOT a controversial issue in science classes outside of parochial schools and far right-wing think tanks. Also just an issue with far RW politicians.
Climate Change is not a controversial issue outside of Koch brothers and other hydrocarbon fuels industries and their paid for politicians and think tanks. When the CIA and the World Bank are issuing dire warnings about climate change it has ceased to become controversial in my opinion.

The only "controversy" on these issues is the ginned up controversy created by the right-wing think tanks and politicians who are all supported by either churches (on evolution) or big corporations that have the most to gain financially by casting doubt on climate change.

It's a BS bill and will never make it anywhere in CO's dem-controlled legislature.

Oh BTW, there's really nothing preventing science teachers from doing this now.
