Gore's Inconvenient Bias

Al Gore and Hurricane Katrina

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'.
Al Gore’s international campaign to spread his message of Anthropomorphic Climate change was dealt a blow in Britain and Mr. Gore’s views on Global warming are not going to be forced any more on unsuspecting 11 year-olds thanks to parent and lorry driver Stewart Dimmock.

Mr. Dimmock from Dover with children aged 11 and 14, 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' and Mr. Dimmock took his complaint all the way to Britain’s Highest Court.

Dimmock attempted to get the video banned from the British school system after it was distributed with four other short films to 3,500 schools in February instead the High Court will have teachers warn pupils that there are other opinions on global warming and they should not necessarily accept the views of the film.

Justice Burton said that with that amended guidance he will not completely ban the film.

In February British Education Secretary Alan Johnson decided that DVDs of the film would be sent to all secondary schools in England, along with a multimedia CD produced by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs containing two short films about climate change and an animation about the carbon cycle.

David Miliband, who was Britain’s Environment-Secretary when the school packs were announced, said at the time: 'The debate over the science of climate change is well and truly over.'
[D]uring the three-day hearing, the court heard that the critically-acclaimed film contains a number of inaccuracies, exaggerations and statements about global warming for which there is currently insufficient scientific evidence.
For the closed minded and partisan in the United States as well as abroad the debate may be “well and truly over” but for the rest of us who believe in science over biased inaccurate and exaggerated political propaganda that is meant to brainwash the little children and child like Liberals, the debate, no the conversation has just begun.
