Avoid Choteu, Montana

Climate Talk’s Cancellation Splits a Town

Complaining conservatives manage to have lecture cancelled by Nobel prize-winning climate researcher, Steven W Running:

...But when some residents complained that his presentation here would be one-sided because no opposing view would be offered, the superintendent of Choteau School District No. 1, Kevin St. John, canceled it...

Only in America do you have to have opposing views when presented with facts. Running admits he was gob-smacked by the cancellation of his lecture:

“...Disbelief was the primary reaction,” he said in a telephone interview. “I’ve never been canceled before. But it was almost comical. I had a pretty candid discussion with the superintendent and the school board, and they said there were some conservative citizens who didn’t want me to speak...”

We are in so much trouble in this country.
