Rep. John Sarbanes (D-Md.) told CNSNews.com at a "Sustainability Education Summit" hosted by the U.S. Education Department on Tuesday that environmental education in schools can "promote the agenda" of climate change and population growth through the influence it has on children.
John P. Holdren, director of the White House Office of Science and Technology co-authored an essay for the World Bank on "The Meaning of Sustainability" that said that human race must face up to a “world of zero net physical growth,” reduce material consumption and limit population growth. CNSNews.com also asked Rep. Sarbanes if he thinks those ideas would help the U.S. economy.
“I think the more you focus on the environment, the need to preserve the environment, protect the environment, the more it’s going to lead to sensible policies going forward,” he responded.
If this does not speak volumes as to whether these guys are all closet Marxists, I don't know what does. As Rep. Sarbanes calls it, it is an agenda alright - it has nothing to do with science!
In related news, U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan vowed on Tuesday that his department would work to make American children into "good environmental citizens" through federally subsidized school programs beginning as early as kindergarten that teach children about climate change and prepare them "to contribute to the workforce through green jobs."
...And this is one of the "least controversial" appointments of this president? Useful Idiots (read: those who are incapable of reading between the lines to see the real motivation of these radicals) will undoubtedly keep on claiming just that!
