Your Global Warming GCSE Science Paper

by | 3rd, December 2008

 WTF? Indeed. The global warming GCSE science paper: take the test:

Last Monday, Graham Stuart, the Tory MP for Beverley and Holderness, read out to the Commons Select Committee for Children, Schools and Families a question from a recent GCSE science paper: “A nuclear power station is to be built. (1) It will provide more employment in the area. But (2) any release of radioactive material would be very dangerous. Which of these two statements argues in favour of siting the nuclear power station in the area?”

Mr Stuart then asked if “the department is really sure that we are providing pupils with a rigorous scientific understanding?” But he was answered by Jim Knight MP, the schools minister, with “Yes. I am absolutely happy that we are, and we have set up Ofqual to provide more public reassurance.”

And not you can’t go to the tolet – flushing it kills dolphins…
