What's the Difference Between Al Gore and the TDSB?

Well, Al is from Tennessee. That aside, not a whole heck of a lot. They're both in the business of environmental indoctrination--big time--refusing to acknowledge the fissures that have developed in the "climate change" monolith.

Here's a whole raft of TDSB guides designed to help teachers cram the dogma--call it the eco-malarkey--down kids' throats. Aside from the Al Gore one, the one called "GRASP--a tool for developing ecological literacy through rich performance tasks" is my favorite. This is its opening quotation:
Being ecologically literate entails a new way of seeing the world and a new way of thinking, known as systems thinking, or systemic thinking.
It means thinking in terms of relationships, connectedness and context.
Fritjof Capra in Ecological Literacy: Mapping the Terrain 2002, 28. 
Au contraire. It means thinking in terms of allowing a bunch of control freaks to take your money, give it to "have not" countries, and micro-manage you to within an inch of life. They'll tell you it's what good people must do to "save" the planet. Do not--I repeat, do not--believe them.

Don't you wish they had the sense to teach that lesson in schools?

It's truly worrying when you see the Lefty bollox-speech repeatedly hammering away at the reader in those "guidelines".
Indoctrination, pure and simple.
