How To Pass A Chemistry Exam (Without Knowing Anything About The Subject)

April 8, 2014

By Paul Homewood

 

Many will have read Andrew Montford’s & John Shade’s expose of the climate change propaganda that is being force fed to our kids, in the name of education.

 

Their full report for the GWPF can be seem here. It is what most of us have suspected for years, and is truly scary.

 

There is one section, though, that I could not resist repeating.

This is the official answer to a question in the Chemistry GCSE, (the exam for 16 year olds).

 

An AQA GCSE specimen answer in Chemistry, deemed worthy of full marks, includes the following words: ‘Overall I think we should be using more biodiesel as it is important for us all to reduce our carbon footprint in an effort to halt global warming’. One for a physics question includes: ‘I think wind turbines are a good idea as global warming from burning coal is an increasing problem and needs to be stopped.’

 

Now, we’ll just leave aside the obvious questions about indoctrination, and get to the other really serious issue.

In my day, (and, no, I’m not 202 years old) to pass an O Level in Chemistry or Physics, we had to answer proper questions about science.

The UK is crying out for proper scientists and engineers, and is it any wonder? If you can pass an exam just by repeating global warming mantras, it does not take a genius to work out why.

(BTW- if any Guardian readers are having difficulty with this pretty simple bit of logic, perhaps you should stop reading such left wing drivel).

    Good post. But the link to the external report is broken.

    Reblogged this on Cornwall Wind Watch and commented:
    so utterly depressing.

    My kids are this age. The horror is that if you want them to do well, they have to toe the line with their teachers, and with the exam board. This means that this drivel has to be allowed to stand until exam day. There is quite a harsh kickback too if any kid has the balls to question the religion. But science it sure as hell isn’t!

    Lies and cheating in these instances will eventually be discovered. Students that take chemistry, physics and other such classes and do not learn the established science soon learn they have been disadvantaged. Teachers and the educational system lose respect. That’s bad but others, having actually learned science, also notice. For example, I’ve known first year college students that did not believe a solid could phase change to a gas (sublimate) without first becoming a puddle of liquid. An obvious question then is what else doesn’t this person know? Usually the lack of learning compounds.

    Frighteningly, the title could more-plausibly be “How to be failed in a Chemistry Exam, by knowing a little bit about the subject”.

    The indoctrinators wield the power.

    I wonder if you have to explain what a carbon footprint is to pass.

    It sounds like the old Soviet method for teaching “Peoples Communist Science”.

    In Ontario the massive Teachers union is heavily invested in “green” and “renewable” operations, they have no interest in teaching anything that might affect their pension. Support my pension….good, think or ask questions….bad.

    Thanks, Paul. Good, scary, article.
    You write: “The UK is crying out for proper scientists and engineers, and is it any wonder? If you can pass an exam just by repeating global warming mantras, it does not take a genius to work out why.”
    No, it does not. We seem to be reaping what we planted; it has been a long time that the man-made global warming scam has been on us.
