How should global warming be taught?

The ridiculousness of the hypocrisy demonstrated by supposed intellectual leaders is astounding. How many cool summers (of which the summer of 2014 has become) and record setting cold/snowy winters such as 2013-2014 where the Great Lakes froze completely (first time in recorded history) does it take to help one turn their heads in the opposite direction? These people are like crotchety old people who will absolutely never change their minds no matter how the Truth points.

This is an EGO filled malady that inconsequential people attempt to use to grab attention to themselves, like two people spreading untrue gossip about someone and in the course of that potentially ruining another persons life with a pathetic attempt at gaining attention.

We each have a responsibility to seek out the unbiased Truth and then not accept someone Else's untruth simply to be part of a group. We call those people groupies who are so desperate for attention they will create lies to support themselves.

Most of the time, I’ve been invited to geographically remote reservations to take portraits and hear stories from a myriad of tribes, while at other times I've photographed members of the 70 percent of Native Americans living in urban settings. My hope, is that when the project is complete, it will serve to educate the nation and shift the collective consciousness toward recognizing our own indigenous communities…

8 Myths and Atrocities About Christopher Columbus

Published on Indian Country Today Media > 8 Myths and Atrocities About Christopher Columbus and Columbus Day 10/14/13 On the second Monday of October each year, Native Americans cringe at the thought of honoring a man who committed atrocities against Indigenous Peoples. Columbus Day was conceived by the Knights of Columbus, a Catholic Fraternal organization, in the 1930s because they wanted a Catholic hero. After President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the day into law as a federal holiday in 1937, the rest has been history. In an attempt to further thwart the celebration of this “holiday,” we at ICTMN have outlined eight misnomers and bloody, greedy, sexually perverse and horrendous atrocities committed by Columbus and his men. On the Way—Columbus Stole a Sailor’s RewardAfter obtaining funding for his explorations to reach Asia from the seizure and sale of properties from Spanish Jews and Muslims by order of King Ferdinand …
