Skip to comments.Global warming will kill us all, warns Common Core-aligned homework
Posted on 12/18/2013 7:48:27 AM PST by rktman
Fifth grade students at Fremont Elementary School in Colorado were assigned a reading passage that describes global warming as a dangerous, man-made phenomenon that will destroy civilization in a few hundred years.
The reading assignment was found inside a workbook aligned with the controversial national Common Core curriculum guidelines, and was titled Homework from the Future. It tells the fictional story of a visitor to the year 2512 who discovers that the eastern United States is under water and the countrys population greatly reduced, all thanks to man-made global warming:

It will take a few years but by the time they’re in HS they will realize it was all BS.
Clearly it is all Bush's fault. Bush and those damned SUVs.
Yeah, but will it rain this Saturday?
The junk science and regulations from it will kill the economy, which will in turn result in violence and starvation so it is true.
OH Noes! I am too young to die! Save me Al Gore! Save me!
Well, we can pray the come to that realization. Seriously, when you were in high school would you have ever thought that an admitted drug user with no records and a marxist/socialist/commie would ever be president? LOL to keep from cryin’.
don’t panic some baby will live to 126
Maybe he’ll toss you a cfc free life preserver. Unless you’re a........ DENIER. Then you gonna drown.
when I was in 9th grade I did a report on the canals on mars straight out of Life magazine.
Good. There isn’t much point in stupid people anyway.
The global warming scam intends to destroy civilization much sooner than a a few centuries.
Just think surfing on the Platte River (now 100 miles wide and three feet deep)! How cool is that?
I’m still waiting for NAFTA to make all of our lives better. He promised us that too. I guess all the unemployed people in America that are worried about globull warming forgot about that.
I still have a Science Digest from the mid-1970s with a big cover article about how man made pollution was causing global cooling and could result in another ice age.
I think TIME magazine had a “New Ice Age” cover about that time.
I was kinda hoping to go out due to a heart attack, in bed, if my wife will let me. But now I’m gonna die of heat stroke... Dang.
What’s all the fuss?
The world ended in 1980.
Common core isn’t some brain washing, grooming future democratic voters program teachers tell me.
I don’t believe them for some reason.
Then they'll have to move introduction of the topic back a few years, maybe to the time they read "Heather has two Mommies."
It’s a darn good thing that kids in the 5th grade aren’t easily influenced.
If you have young children or grandchildren you will see how the media maintains powerful influence over our culture.
There are often blatant environmentalist messages in programming for kids, which are otherwise cute shows that are age appropriate with concepts. I am sure they have started with pro-gay messaging, but I have not noticed it yet with shows for youngsters and we are going to skip the pre-teen drama shows because we don’t approve of the messaging - too much angst.
We already know that public education will promote the liberal agenda and that is why we homeschool.
Same thing is true for any kind of nature show and even some history programming on those channels. A few weeks ago I was watching part of a nature show on Discovery that was filmed about 10 years ago and they said with certainty that glaciers in the Arctic were disappearing. False, but for people who don’t pay attention it’s effective. It’s repeated constantly on nature programming.
lol - I thought we were supposed to be out of oil by now? They told me it would be...I must be dreaming every time I get in my car!
So, were the kids told it was a science fiction story? No? I didn’t think so.
LOL...I think rktman was being a bit sarcastic...
Forgot the sarc/ button.
But hey, it would resolve things. However, the tree-huggers would never go for a “man-made” solution that didn't involve suffering and giving up modern lifestyle. So they will oppose it. It would make for interesting teledrama to have Al Gore say we need to keep the earth from warming, but we can't do it “that way” we need to do it in a way that will make people suffer and change our economic system.
Too bad that folks like algore and the “lyin’ king” will be “insulated” from any of that type suffering.
Maybe she doesn’t like Common Core either.
*will destroy civilization in a few hundred years*
I thought AL gore said it would destroy us by 1999...
If we are stupid enough to believe the scam and let the politicians tax us into the dark ages ($700 TRILION), then I don’t think civilization has more than 2 or 3 decades.
LOL! So algore buys tipper a beach front house in Cali. Now that’s funny.
*Whats all the fuss?
The world ended in 1980.*
Plus and equally scientific “scientist” just told us that we’re all holograms...
I dont believe them for some reason.*
I wonder how much of is plagiarized from Goebbels’ writtings....
This is the way the horse sh*t gets spread around.
