More Inconvenient Truth For Al Gore

By January 17, 2007Global Warming

Here’s a radical notion: The school board in a Seattle suburb has restricted showings of Al Gore’s movie, “Requiring that it be balanced with an adequate opposing viewpoint.” Balance? Wow. Let’s hope that doesn’t catch on in American education. Where would the enviros be then?!?

“We have to ensure that our schools are not being used to politically indoctrinate anyone,” one school board member is quoted as saying. That’s exactly what the left is trying to do. Bravo to these folks for battling back and for insisting on balance, a tough concept for the left to accept, we know.

Oh, and in a related story, global warming apparently hasn’t hit California yet, either.

    You should have included some of the comments from the parent who caused this ruckus:

    “The Bible says that in the end times everything will burn up, but that perspective isn’t in the DVD.”

    She also said that planet earth is only 6,000 years old. This school system is the laughingstock of the country because of their anti-science bias.

    You do a disservice to your membership but clinging to your flat Earth view.

    Thank you for that assessment Dr. Cleary.

    Oh, btw. 2006 was the warmest year EVER.

    Isnt the public media enough of “opposing viewpoint” ?
    Why arent you putting opposing viewpoint textbooks in school systems?
    Why arent you putting opposing viewpoints on everything in the school system?
    But because Al Gore’s movie gives valid arguement for something that your administration disagrees on, we cant have it suddenly?
    Don’t you want people in school to judge something objectively? Shouldn’t they learn that? To not completely trust everything thats out there. That includes modern media, an Inconvenient Truth, the White House, Everything.
    But they’re never going to get a chance to do that if they never see anything other than what the government wants them to see.
