Colleges should not be left-wing indoctrination centers.

CFACT’s network of student leaders are fighting back with chapters on campuses from coast to coast.

As 2018 wound down, CFACT students gathered in Florida for an “eco-summit.”  Adam Houser has full details at CFACT Campus.

Students heard lectures on energy, environmentalism, water quality, and climate change.  They visited a refuge CFACT student eco-summit 2018 1for endangered manatees.

Here’s what students had to say:

  • “As someone who goes to a very progressive university, hearing the facts behind the scientific argument about climate change and what our side – the facts that we have that backs up our argument, is going to be really useful when I take it back to campus,” explained Marcus Maldonado of Tulane University in New Orleans.
  • “I really liked the water quality talk, I thought it was super interesting,” said Abby Draiss, a junior at the Ohio State University on Captain Travis Thompson’s discussion on how to solve issues like Red Tide and invasive species to Florida’s ecosystem.
  • “I found [James Taylor’s] talk very interesting,” said Sarah Knickerbocker, a law student at Syracuse University. “He has a lot of knowledge about hydraulic fracturing, in particular how it pertains to New York and upstate New York.”
  • “I’m very excited to take back what I learned to campus,” said Maggie Anders, a junior at the University of Louisiana, Lafayette.
  • David Bucarey, a sophomore at George Mason  University in northern Virginia said: “One of my favorite topics was about…how hunting was actually helping keep extinction away from animals when the media makes it seem all the time like ‘oh hunting is bad and you’re gonna kill everything’ when in reality its a very good tool to use to conserve animals.”

Every day CFACT student leaders share the facts the Left fears with their classmates.  They stand up for students rights to free speech and fair play.

Facts should have a place in higher education.  When CFACT’s on campus they do.
