Michelle Dewkett speaks out – Fox interview 2009

She just wants an unbiased education. Rhinebeck student Michelle Dewkett explains on Fox & Friends that there is way too much bias in the curriculum, and she wants it balanced. Is that fair?

Student seeks balance in teaching of controversial topics

“My friend and I want to start a club for young conservatives in Rhinebeck,” she said. “Right now, though, when someone wants to talk about these things, there are a lot of students that really don’t want to hear them.”

 A program to help concerned citizens, environmental advocates and municipal officials work effectively with their local governmental bodies in addressing climate change will be held on October 20th at 7pm at Ulster BOCES in New Paltz.  The League of Women Voters of the Mid-Hudson Region is partnering with The Nature Conservancy, Hudson River Sloop Clearwater, Sustainable Hudson Valley, and others to present this informational forum.

  Participants in The Nature Conservancy’s Rising Waters Project will explain what is (or will be) happening here in our region as climate change continues.  Other speakers will talk about cost-effective ways to work with local officials to address climate change right now as well as in the long-term.  They will also discuss employment and economic development opportunities applicable to the mid-Hudson region that the climate change crisis presents.

  1. Please pass on to Michelle that while Al Gore has dozens of technical mistakes in his documentary, in order to keep the scientific dialogue OPEN, it would be better for her to allude to scientists like Richard Lindzen from MIT and John Cristy from Alabama rather than talk show hosts such as Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity. Thank you

    1. Hi Roger,
      Bob A. here.
      BTW I am in Rhinebeck.
      I have 5 sites including one for Rhinebeck and below is a comment on my Rhinebeck site. I have the contact information and will pass along. Please visit, read the comments and comment with some words of support for Michelle.

      “I watched Michelle Dewkett’s interview on Fox and Friends this morning with great interest. Kudos to her for being willing to stand up to the Al Gore/Inconvenient Lie propaganda at her school on national television!

      However, if Michelle Dewkett wants to truly advance the debate on this subject, she needs to have stronger, scientifically sound arguments than simply agreeing with Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Laura Ingraham. While I personally respect thes commentators, their views are often interpreted by the general public as political and partisan, not scientific.

      I am a Chemical and Environmental Engineer in Connecticut, and have joined a group of 14 engineers and scientists in Connecticut (including several meteorologists) who have researched the scientific reasons why carbon dioxide has only a tiny effect on climate compared to much larger natural influences such as sunspots, cosmic rays, volcanism, and ocean currents, and our group has written editorials published in newsparers. We would welcome the opportunity to share our knowledge of this issue with Michelle, so that she can address this issue more scientifically in future interviews.

      Please feel free to contact me by E-mail at the above address, if you would like our group to assist Michelle in her noble efforts to fight the Global Warming scare.”

      Roger,
      Richard Lindzen is part of the group

  2. I have posted this on of my sites. This is my first visit here and will hit back. I say:

    Kudos to Rhinebeck sophmore…

    … Michelle Dewkett for speaking out on global warming. I watched her interview on FOX and Friends this morning. Thumbs down to Rhinebeck High School for not providing the truth or at the very least a balanced look at this issue.
