NCSE Evolution and Climate Education Update for 2014/06/06

(by NCSE Deputy Director Glenn Branch)

Dear friends of NCSE,

A nice honor for NCSE's website. Wyoming scientists and educators
defend the place of climate science in the state science standards.
Plus a new poll on evolution from Gallup, a new milestone for NCSE's
Facebook page, and the introduction of evolution in middle school
classrooms in Israel.

Dear friends of NCSE,

A new webinar from NCSE is on the horizon. Oklahoma takes a further
step toward derailing its new science standards. A new issue of
Reports of the NCSE is available on-line. Plus South Carolina adopted

Dear friends of NCSE,

The proposal to include a reference to the sixth day of creation in a
bill designate a state fossil for South Carolina is still alive, while
the state's new science standards are again derailed by a state
senator's objections to evolution. NCSE's Friend of Darwin and Friend
of the Planet awards for 2014 are announced. And further comment on
the Wyoming legislature's decision not to fund adoption of the Next
Generation Science Standards because of their treatment of climate
change.

Dear friends of NCSE,

The effort to repeal the so-called Louisiana Science Education Act
failed again. New, and disturbing, poll results about public
confidence in science. Editorialists in Wyoming are irate about the
state government's derailing the adoption of the Next Generation
Science Standards over climate. The New York Times surveys the state
of climate change education around the globe. And a Darwin Day bill
dies in the Hawaiian legislature.
