Education institutions mercilessly inflict An Inconvenient Truth on our children, regardless of their age, and eco-fascists and the media use the worst predictions about climate change in all of their reporting in order to promote their left wing agendas. For the left it’s OK to use whatever platform they can in order to proselytize their climate change message. Regardless of your political view you have to agree that using a quiz for the purpose of pushing a political agenda is a fair way beyond the pale.
