Gobernator terminates global warming in schools

California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger terminated a bill that would requires climate change to be added to the school curriculum. The measure would have required future science textbooks to include climate change as a subject.

The governor said he opposed educational mandates coming out of the state capital. But according to Patrick Michaels, a climatologist from the University of Virginia and a member of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, he may have been worried. If children discovered in homework assignments that California climate change law, if applied to the entire US, would affect global warming by one 5,000ths of one degree, they might start questioning whether all the global warming fuss was much ado about nothing.
