Ted Nugent is one of the last people you would ever want imparting advice to your children — and yet, the rocker was recently a special guest speaker at his granddaughter’s high school, Shrine Catholic Academy, in Royal Oak, MI.

While the nature of the talk included some good points — like staying away from drugs and alcohol — Nugent couldn’t help but push his politics onto the kids as well.

According to the Oakland Press, a Shrine Catholic Academy and High School student asked for Nugent’s views on global warming. He responded with this gem: “Global warming is a fraud. Watch Glenn Beck.”

Is Nugent aware that even Glenn Beck supports the science that man-made emissions are contributing to global warming?

Sounds like another Peek-a-boologist to us!

    I guess even Ted has a right to believe whatever he wants ( I kinda sorta suspect he may be right). But, I think he was out of line to promote a tv personality that is simply another celebrity, not a serious journalist or professional. There are many scientists who also believe it is a fraud, that he could have quoted instead.

    So which is it: “Nugent couldn’t help but push his politics onto the kids as well.”

    or

    “a Shrine Catholic Academy and High School student asked for Nugent’s views on global warming. He responded with…”?

    You make it sound like he stormed in and started screaming through a bullhorn.

    And even if he did, is that so terrible that someone might have a different view? Something that counters the made up nonsense that is spoon fed to our kids by the schools.

    And as for Beck believing in Global Warming, Climate Change, whatever you call it this week, he has long said he was not sure on the issue and that he believed there had been some warming but was not sure about human causing it.

    And re “There are many scientists who also believe it is a fraud, that he could have quoted instead.” by uncle bob

    Glenn Beck is one of the few shows on radio or television that gives these scientists (and others) who disagree with the hoax known as global warming a platform. Considering schools show Al Gore’s factually challenged film I see no problem with someone recommending Beck’s show as an alternative. Is Al Gore a scientist? Nope, he is just a climate alarmist profiteer.

    Climate change is the least of our short term worries… we have dozens of leaking civilian nuclear reactors threatening the lives of millions of people. That’s an immediate problem!

    Climate change can cause global wheather catastrophies which can cause global energy crises and help nuclear waste leaking by derailing trains that carries nuclear waste. Ships carring nuclear waste can sink. Even best nuclear facilities rely on people for maintanance that could be killed in catastrophies caused by climate change. And by the way why nobody mentions Ted Nugents past which suggests his interest towards underage girls are somewhat shady. I am not saying hes pedofile but his daughter is in chatolic school… Religious fundamentalists often are sceptic about science but rarely want to adress child abuse problems in there own back yard. I dont mind if this comment gets censored because i think most people knows all this already.

    Good for him. More people need to go into schools in which children have been exposed to misleading and misguided alarm about climate, not least those which have used ‘An Inconvenient Truth’.
