(My emphasis throughout)
I wanted to show you a few snips – that will hopefully provide you with an example of the on-going anti-climate right-wing extremist agenda that is disseminated at ALEC meetings.
Based on this information – it is not hard to understand why ALEC legislators come back from these meetings with stinking thinking that is based on right-wing extremist propaganda.
First a little recap of the purpose of one of their meetings.
Spring Task Force Summit
The Summit is an intensive three-day meeting of ALEC’s task force members, designed to keep members abreast of new developments in the states, and includes Task Force meetings, hearings on pressing issues, and plenary meal sessions with policy discussions and presentations. Only sitting Task Force members attend these meetings with the goal of setting the Task Force agenda for the upcoming year.
The goal of setting the agenda for the upcoming year.
When you think about that – and then consider that anti-climate education is an on-going part of that ALEC “education”, it's nasty.
Types of things they learn at the Spring Task Force Summit
2002 ALEC Annual Report
During the Task Force Summit, ALEC released a major report, “Global Warming and the Kyoto Protocol: Paper Tiger, Economic Dragon.” The report, written by Patrick J. Michaels, is critical of exaggerated global warming arguments and exposes “the economic and scientific poverty of the Kyoto Protocol on global warming.”
And then even more speakers about the topic:
Inside ALEC April 2009
ALEC’s 2009 Spring Task Force Summit,
State legislators will also share their knowledge and experiences with one another and hear from nati onal leaders and renowned policy experts. Speakers include: U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN); Governor Haley Barbour (MS); Kimball Rasmussen, CEO of Deseret Power; and Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney, producers of the film “Not Evil, Just Wrong.”
On-going anti-climate misinformation that your ALEC legislators accepts as truth.
Let’s take a little closer look at the guest speakers at the ALEC’s 2009 Spring Task Force Summit
Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney, producers of the film “Not Evil, Just Wrong.”.
Global warming alarmists want Americans to believe that humans are killing the planet. But Not Evil Just Wrong, a new documentary by Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney, proves that the only threats to America (and the rest of the world) are the flawed science and sky-is-falling rhetoric of Al Gore and his allies in environmental extremism.
Not Evil Just Wrong exposes the deceptions about global warming that scientists, politicians, educators and the media have been force-feeding the public for years, including fear-mongering about floods and dying polar bears.
From the Redstate archives you have these glowing snips about Not 'Evil' -- Just 'Wrong'
Not 'Evil' -- Just 'Wrong'
By Jeff Emanuel Posted in AGW | Energy | radical environmentalists —
"A lot of environmental activists still have not come to accept that the humans are also part of the environment."
… and the havoc that the fanatics fighting to take control of this issue will wreak on the world's population and economy if they are allowed to have their way.
"Not Evil Just Wrong" is, according to its web site, "a feature-length documentary which shows how extreme environmentalism is damaging the lives of vulnerable people from the ban on DDT to the campaigns on global warming."
It sounds like a worthy message to be spreading.
Well – that is debatable
Especially if you are an environmental activist – fanatic – trying to damage the lives of vulnerable people.
And they took it on the road to all the extremist right-wing organizations:
Not Evil Just Wrong is a 2009 documentary film by Ann McElhinney and Phelim McAleer that challenges Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth …
Despite earlier screenings at conservative political conferences, filmmakers promoted a "premiere" on October 18, 2009.
Not Evil Just Wrong: The Film Al GoreDoesn’t Want You to See
October 19, 2009 at 9:47 am
Last night Heritage hosted the world premiere of “Not Evil Just Wrong,” a feature-length documentary that reveals the true cost of global warming hysteria. The film was broadcast live on Ustream.tv.
Following last night’s screening at Heritage, Andrew Breitbart moderated a panel featuring Richard Lindzen, a professor of meteorology at MIT; Donald Roberts, professor emeritus of tropical health in the Department of Preventive Medicine and Biometrics at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences; and John Fund, an author and columnist at the Wall Street Journal.
And they promoted it at the ALEC Annual Meeting in Atlanta in 2009 as shown here in a recap of a non-legislative member – aka staffer – who attended the ALEC meeting in a “representative capacity. Not only does it highlight the anti-climate agenda, but it also gives you a little insight into what else goes on at the meeting and the skewed perspective of the agenda.
As Chairman of the House Science & Technology Committee and member of the Energy, Utilities and Telecommunications Committee, I have been appointed by the Speaker of the House to committees of two national organizations: The Natural Resources Committee of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) and the Agriculture and Energy Committee of the National Council of State Legislatures (NCSL).
ALEC met in Atlanta July 14-17, and the meetings I attended focused on the economy and the issues of health care, global warming, cap and trade, and school choice. Most of the attendees were moderate to conservative, and the discussions reflected a fear of what the current administration's policies will do to the economy. They were especially concerned with the huge new federal debt being created and what amounts to increased taxes on power companies.
With respect to global warming, one of the presenters provided NASA satellite data showing that arctic ice grew in 2008 and is growing more in 2009. This was followed by a documentary, "Not Evil Just Wrong,” which examines the devastating economic consequences of the global warming hysteria. The film also highlights the tragic consequences of the ban on DDT which resulted in millions of African children dying of malaria.

I wonder if he got a “scholarship (which according to the by-laws of ALEC are reserved for legislators)
And that is the type of extremist right-wing climate education that YOUR ALEC legislator gets at ALEC meetings!!!!
