An Inconvenient Truth now officially deemed as biased
Schools will have to issue a warning before they show pupils Al Gore's controversial film about global warming, a judge indicated yesterday.
The move follows a High Court action by a father who accused the Government of 'brainwashing' children with propaganda by showing it in the classroom.
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'....
...Mr Justice Burton is due to deliver a ruling on the case next week, but yesterday he said he would be saying that Gore's Oscar-winning film does promote 'partisan political views'.
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.
I don't think it takes a rocket scientist or a court of law to figure out that An Inconvenient Truth is nothing more than partisan propaganda (though some big government Republicans think its wonderful, too). But it does go to show the lengths to which the environmental movement will go to push their agenda. They never let the facts get in the way of the story as they present it.
