Ohio college and university instructors could be barred from teaching climate science without also including false or misleading counterpoints under a sprawling higher education bill that received its first hearing Wednesday.

Senate Bill 83, or the Higher Education Enhancement Act, seeks to police classroom speech on a wide range of topics, including climate change, abortion, immigration, and diversity, equity and inclusion — all of which would be labeled “controversial.”

On these and other subjects, public colleges and universities would need to guarantee that faculty and staff will “encourage and allow students to reach their own conclusions” and “not seek to inculcate any social, political, or religious point of view.”  . .

Sen. Jerry Cirino, a Republican from Kirtland and SB 83’s primary sponsor, said it was his idea to include climate change as a “controversial” belief or policy, and that he “didn’t actually consult with climate people.”

Of course not. Scientists have a well-known bias towards science, so we need to consult with a neutral expert on the subject, like Pastor Rick down at the Ebenezer Baptist Church, who can check the Bible for the real answer.

The American right wing hates universities, because American universities are dedicated (well sort of) to the production and dissemination of knowledge, and knowledge is inimical to right wing beliefs, because those beliefs are usually false.

It will soon be illegal to utter that statement in a college classroom in a large number of American states.
