Anti-evolution And Anti-climate Science Bills Laid Bare

Before I became active on YouTube I wasn’t aware of the NCSE, but I’ve become a big supporter of this organisation in the past few years, as they provide a very valuable service:

And one of their activities are presentations about these issues.
