Badges for being stupid?
So the left has totally taken over the scouts now?
Liberalism is just communism sold by the drink.

Aren't the Boy Scouts right wing? With such being the case, that is a useless award.

I'm sure Girl Scouts has some type of equal badge, at this point in time. We didn't have an ecology badge in the 70s, when I was a GS, but we had ecology types of lessons worked into our outdoor badges-hiking, camping,etc. It was definitely a theme at GS camp.

Ecology and sustainability are one thing and are both valuable learnings. AGW on the other hand is downright off-the-charts stupidity.
And as to right or left? Don't forget the acceptance of the new pink scout to the camp. Next will be the reinstatement of the gay scoutmaster.
It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.
