Oh good grief. My elementary students (who are homeschooled) know very well that George Washington set water on fire.
"The results, as described by Paine, were clear:
When the mud at the bottom was disturbed by the poles, the air bubbles rose fast, and I saw the fire take from General Washington’s light and descend from thence to the surface of the water, in a similar manner as when a lighted candle is held so as to touch the smoke of a candle just blown out, the smoke will take fire, and the fire will descend and light up the candle."
Fracking is not safe and anybody that tells you it is safe is lying..Tell you what..GO to these areas where all this fracking being done and DRINK the water that the local residents refuse to drink....And drink it for a few years..Otherwise stop whining when somebody tells the truth about fracking....
I've provided services to the gas industry for more than 30 years and with all due respect you are wrong. Are you speaking from experience or are you parroting what you've heard from the environmental extremist that produced this film?
There are literally thousands of gas wells in the area in which I live, and I have been involved with a significant number of them. I can't remember no more than one or two people complaining about a gas well affecting their water well, and those turned out to be caused from other sources.
As for the fire from a spigot, water wells can tap a pocket of methane gas. I have actually heard of people having an explosion in their well house. These occurred long before any significant drilling activity.
You aren't much of a teacher if you don't review your material before you apply it's use in the classroom.
all teachers should be educating their students on fracking, our eminent water shortage, petroleum consumption, global warming, carbon footprints.....whats the matter with you?
Go ahead and load up.
Would like the Keystone Pipeline, the coal ondustry brought back, and other more traditional energy sources.
But think that fracking 's ability to stir earthquakes is underestimated, and that when pursued will stimulate great earthquakes, Biblical proportions.
Why should anyone be surprised at all? For that matter, why is this even newsworthy? It is about the only thing one could expect with the liberals and unions in charge of public education for 50 freaking years.
Maybe now she should show them the movie "Agenda:Grinding America Down", then they might dislike the education system and all those politicians that have destroyed the very framework of our morality. Check out the trailer here:
Typical for a leftist. Know little or nothing about a subject and then without ever looking for a balanced approach to knowledge, indoctrinate anyone that is a captive audience with a total BS documentary. If I peak my head out the door on this cold February night, you may hear me screaming.
Just one more item: Did the local new even consider what this actually means in terms of misinformation? Chit no, course not, they were all giddy about Obama wrote a letter to the newly indoctrinated child er.... prop.
Thomas Sowell wrote a great book about public education ("Inside American Education"). One of the things he notes is that education majors do not attract the smartest people and that education majors have low requirements.
This type of brainwashing has been taking place in the public schools for decades.Americans are finally waking up to the reality that the public school system is and has been nothing more than a liberal(commie) indoctrination center.
Israel is frackin' it way to the top. We are a hollow shell with our future scientists in the hands of junk science teachers.
Why Israel will rule the new Middle East
We homeschooled our kids, but guess what, the indoctrination in college is stronger and comes with heavier penalties for those who try to swim upstream. My oldest is in a science major but still has to take a bunch of humanities classes, including his current one in which the professor uses the class to argue with and mock any student who dares to go against the liberal line. Even in a science-related course on energy production, the professor told everyone that he would permit no one to argue that anthropomorphic global warming is not occurring.
Betcha if this child indoctrinator showed a factually correct piece about fracking, she'd be suspended without pay for using unapproved material in the child indoctrination room (used to be called classroom).
It's shame but parents have to watch this pathetic movie with their kids this and teach them it's wrong.
She's a typical liberal, union teacher....she doesn't know what the frack she's talking about and teaching her students!!!!!!!!!!!
And I guess the parents know no better than the teacher? What a disgrace! Indoctrinating our children rather than teaching them both sides and allowing them to think and decide for themselves.
I've mentioned this before-
When I was in 6th grade my teacher had us write letters, make protest signs, and then even held a protest rally in front of the school to SUPPORT the idea of President Nixon being impeached.
I asked my parents a few years ago, how they could of allowed that to happen, and not said anything- I mean if that happened while my son was attending school- WOW! My husband and I would have marched down to the school……
My parents both looked at me, and deers in the headlights.
Here is a link to this teachers website, please have her show Frack Nation to her students as well. Let them see both sides of the FACTS. http://www.lakeviewschools.net/teacher-websites/
I like how the patients are running the asylum now.
Typical left-wing nut crap... get a flaming idiot liberal, put her in charge of a classroom full of young impressionable minds (who need to get a good grade), and voila! Brainwashed children! Future Democratic voters... no one will ever know...
It sucks that some parents have to leave their children in the hands of these devils. Government-run schools are indoctrination centers... and havens for union thug teachers. What a tragedy. And America ranks where is math, science, reading, etc.? I guess the government needs to tax us more and throw more money at these miserable schools. What a wicked cycle.
Like guns... schools aren't the problem... it's the insane people behind them that are killing our future.
Parents are fools when they don't monitor these teachers or their elected school officials.
Bet money this movie is not in the state curriculum. Teachers waste time on this garbage all of the time but give no time to what they are supposed to be teaching. Then colleges wonder why no one is college ready so standards have to be lowered and parents wonder why their children have to go on the five year or six year plan.
People need to learn "Trust but Verify" and apply it to all things including schools.
Exactly Laurel but use a phrase that the libs were quite fond of back in the 70's, "Question Authority". Now that the inmates are running the asylum, we are told that 'questioning the authority' of Barack Obama is 'unpatriotic'. ;-)
And who's saying the teacher doesn't AGREE with the movie? I hate to say it, but a lot of teachers don't bother to research ANYTHING! They just take the material handed to them and teach it! She certainly sounds like she drank the kool-aid too; she seems pleasantly surprised that she got her students motivated and down the road to be little liberal robots from this propagandist tripe. This is why fascists and communists go after the kids first. Because they are gullible and tend to believe anything an adult in authority tells them. They don't want to believe adults will lie to them.
There's Gasland... then there's Truthland
"...guess it's time to fire up the Chevy for a road trip" to Truthland
Yeah and Frack Nation is an independently produced film which had to beg and scrape to get money from private donors.
Although Truthland has a "mom and pop" "aw shucks" kind of feel, it is true it was sponsored by the Independent Petroleum Assoc. of America... a mortal sin according to enviro-extremists. How dare those evil gas and oil and industry companies advocate for themselves and America's energy needs! The nerve!
And did you notice that the more ethical environmentalists can only justify their "environmentalism" on this issue with the lame statements that the gas industry just has to ensure that what they are doing is safe and according to the law. They know their "environmental" golden goose is cooked... and cooked with gas no less.
Of course these leftists never tell you which progressive/left foundations, like Tides, fund them. Oh the one-way-street of the enviro-extremists.
So, a science teacher watched a movie to get her education.
I bet she regrets paying all that college tuition. All she needed to do was to watch a movie.
She likely believes that SUV's and factories caused the Sahara Desert to form.
