This is cool, no pun intended. A judge has ruled in favor of the school teacher that Al Gore’s movie “An Inconvenient Truth” may be shown in schools only if the students are first told that this movie represents Al Gore’s ideas and is not the be all and end all theory about global warming, that there are others.
This means that teachers will have to warn pupils that there are other opinions on global warming and they should not necessarily accept the views of the film.
Stewart Dimmock said the former U.S. Vice-President’s documentary, An Inconvenient Truth, is unfit for schools because it is politically biased and contains serious scientific inaccuracies and ‘sentimental mush’.
High Court Judge Michael Burton said that errors were made in “the context of alarmism and exaggeration.” The film’s “apocalyptic vision” was not an impartial analysis of climate change.
