NCSE Evolution and Climate Education Update for 2014/05/02

(by NCSE Deputy Director Glenn Branch)

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.

NCSE Evolution and Climate Education Update for 2014/04/25

(by NCSE Deputy Director Glenn Branch)

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.

Dear friends of NCSE,

The Association for Science Teacher Education adds its voice for
evolution. Plus the situation with Wyoming's state science standards
is still in flux. And a reminder about NCSE's YouTube channel.

Dear friends of NCSE,

Harris issues a new poll including results on global climate change.
The South Carolina House of Representatives rejects a bill with a
reference to the Sixth Day of Creation. NCSE is pleased to offer a
preview of Michael L. Bender's Paleoclimate. The South Carolina Senate
votes to incorporate a reference to the Sixth Day of Creation in a
bill designating the official state fossil. And the second of
Oklahoma's two antiscience bills for 2014 dies in committee.

Dear friends of NCSE,

A new honor for the young activist Zack Kopplin, but a defeat for a
bill that would remove Louisiana's Balanced Treatment Act, ruled to be
unconstitutional in 1987, from the state's statute books.

NCSE Evolution and Climate Education Update for 2014/03/21

(by NCSE Deputy Director Glenn Branch)

Dear friends of NCSE,

The state's largest newspaper reacts editorially to Wyoming's decision
not to adopt the NGSS. One of the antievolution bills in Missouri
advances. There's a settlement in a Louisiana case involving a
sixth-grade teacher's advocacy of creationism. And Wyoming blocks the
adoption of the NGSS partly because of their treatment of global
climate change.

Dear friends of NCSE,

The Louisiana legislature takes a step toward repealing the
creationist bill it enacted in 1981, while a Darwin Day bill is
introduced in the Hawaii legislature. The Baton Rouge Advocate
reaffirms its endorsement of the proposed repeal of the so-called
Louisiana Science Education Act of 2008. And NCSE attains its 40,000th
Facebook fan.

Dear friends of NCSE,

A bill to repeal Louisiana's 2008 antievolution law is introduced. One
antiscience bill is dead in Oklahoma. NCSE's Eugenie C. Scott receives

Louisiana's 1981 antievolution law is introduced. And a preview of New

Minda Berbeco and Mark McCaffrey.
