Sadly unlikely to be implemented but at least it is getting the sentiment into public fora.
THE organisational wing of the Liberal National Party has voted to “remove environmental propaganda” on climate change from Queensland schools.
A delegate at the LNP’s three-day annual conference cited concerns “false prophets” were poisoning childrens’ minds.
Delegates on the first day of the conference in Brisbane yesterday agreed to call on Education Minister John-Paul Langbroek to ban “post-normal science” from the curriculum and exam materials.
LNP Noosa delegate Richard Pearson, who moved the proposal, said climate change information was being used as a strategy in schools to promote a political view, and the science was not set.
“It’s aimed at the heart of those false prophets who would poison the hearts and minds of our children in the Queensland education system,” he said.
“The word propaganda is in there for a very good reason.”
