Inconvenient Coincidences in Utah

Totally off-topic today: I came across two news items, both courtesy of slashdot. First, I read that a Utah legislator wants to make the 12th grade optional. Then, I read that the Utah assembly has passed a resolution that officially denies global climate change. I cannot help but speculate that the two issues might have a lot in common with each other...
BTW, in case you're wondering (doubtful, I know) where Savant stands on climate change, I suggest David Brin's blog to get a good idea. Particularly, this entry and its follow-up.
