NCSE Evolution Education Update for 2012/03/09

(by NCSE Deputy Director Glenn Branch)

Dear Friends of NCSE,

The effort to repeal Louisiana's antievolution law is back. A
creationist teacher in Ohio receives a further legal defeat. NCSE
announces the 2012 recipients of its Friend of Darwin award. And a
court ruling protects a climate scientist undergoing what he called a
"witch hunt."

NCSE Evolution Education Update for 2012/03/02

(by NCSE Deputy Director Glenn Branch)

Dear Friends of NCSE,

A publisher's second thoughts about a forthcoming cryptocreationist
book. A step forward for the credit-for-creationism scheme in Alabama.
A new poll of public opinion regarding climate change. Plus a new
issue of Reports of the NCSE and a new batch of videos on NCSE's
YouTube channel.

NCSE Evolution Education Update for 2012/02/24

Dear Friends of NCSE,

The end of the road for C. F. v. Corbett. A second bill in Oklahoma
attacks evolution and climate change. Documents reveal a conservative
think tank's plans to undermine the teaching of global warming in
public schools -- and the source of the leak steps forward. The two
antievolution bills in New Hampshire are editorially denounced, and
the impetus behind the credit-for-creationism scheme in Alabama is
divulged.

NCSE Evolution Education Update for 2012/02/17

(by NCSE Deputy Director Glenn Branch)

Dear Friends of NCSE,

Both antievolution bills in New Hampshire have been dismissed by the
House Education Committee. A new bill in Alabama would be a "vehicle"
for creationism, says its sponsor -- but a leading constitutional
scholar regards it as unconstitutional. Plus the creationist bill in
Indiana is apparently shelved, and a new poll investigates the
opinions of British Christians on teaching creationism in the science
classroom.

Dear Friends of NCSE,

Speculations and recommendations about the creationist bill in
Indiana; the (partial) return of evolution to Science and Engineering
Indicators; and the advent of Darwin Day and Evolution Weekend.

NCSE Evolution Education Update for 2012/02/03

(by NCSE Deputy Director Glenn Branch)

Dear Friends of NCSE,

The Indiana Senate passes the creationist bill. Evolution matters when
Fordham rates the states for their science standards. And a reminder
about Darwin Day and Evolution Weekend.

NCSE Evolution Education Update for 2012/01/27

(by NCSE Deputy Director Glenn Branch)

Dear Friends of NCSE,

Bills, bills, bills. Indiana's creation science bill passes through
committee; Leslie Brunetta argues that antievolution bills are bad for
your health; opposition to Indiana's creationist bill comes from a
variety of perspectives; the St. Louis Beacon sheds further light on
Missouri's "intelligent design" bill; and a new bill in Oklahoma
attacks both evolution and climate science. And a reminder that Darwin
Day is on its way.

NCSE Evolution Education Update for 2012/01/20

(by NCSE Deputy Director Glenn Branch)

Dear Friends of NCSE,

Big news from NCSE, with the launch of a new initiative aimed at
defending the teaching of climate change. Plus a reminder that Darwin
Day approaches, and a revealing comment from the sponsor of one of
Missouri's two antievolution bills.

NCSE Evolution Education Update for 2012/01/13

(by NCSE Deputy Director Glenn Branch)

Dear Friends of NCSE,

NCSE files a friend-of-the-court brief in the Freshwater case. Two
antievolution bills in Missouri: one that would encourage teachers to
emphasize "the scientific strengths and scientific weaknesses" of
evolution and one that would require equal time for "intelligent
design" in the state's schools and universities. Protestant pastors in
the United States reject evolution, according to a survey conducted by
the research arm of the Southern Baptist Convention. Over a third of
K-12 educators who teach about climate change have been influenced to
teach "both sides," according to a NESTA survey. And a reminder about
NCSE's Grand Canyon expedition in 2012.

NCSE Evolution Education Update for 2012/01/06

(by NCSE Deputy Director Glenn Branch)

Dear Friends of NCSE,

The eminent geneticist James F. Crow is dead. Plus the Fort Wayne
Journal Gazette criticizes Indiana's creation science bill, and the
Granite Geek revisits the antievolution bills in New Hampshire's
legislature.
