The Muppets, Environmental Literacy, and Brainwashing

A suburban greenmom spends too much time on Facebook when she should be studying...

Okay, you may have seen this one: it's been making the rounds. Apparently Fox Business News got themselves all worked up about how the Liberal Hollywood Machine is trying to brainwash our kids by making movies with the rich oil baron as the Bad Guy. Because, actually, you know, he's supposed to be a role model for American children. And the oil companies are, like, you know, good guys.

Here's what Kermit and Miss Piggy had to say about that:

What I find particularly interesting is this other headline I discovered today:

So while Fox is screeching about "Why can't those liberals leave our children alone?"--anti-climate-change-science groups are pushing for legislation to mandate denial being taught in our schools.

So really, what the fight seems to be about is who gets to brainwash our kids.
