On the pretense of teaching critical thinking skills and promoting “balance” the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) is promoting an “Environmental Literacy Act,” which is a thinly disguised bill to support climate denial. ALEC has been a very powerful lobbying organization for corporate energy. However, most recently companies have been withdrawing from ALEC. Corporations that have terminated membership include Amazon, Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, Kraft, Wendy’s, Mars, Inc., Arizona Public Service, the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards Scantron, The National Association of Charter School Authorizers, Kaplan, Procter & Gamble, Yum! Brands,five Pennsylvania legislators, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Reed Elsevier, American Traffic Solutions,Intuit, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Kudos to these companies for recognizing the urgency of mitigating and adapting to climate change rather than continuing to argue over the very sound science. Skepticism is productive in any science. Denial is not.
