Anyone else see/hear this?

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/main.jhtml?xml=/earth/2007/09/28/eagore128.xml

I've not seen it yet and I'm hardly an eco-bleeding heart.

But does anyone else find the idea of banning
a doc film from schools a bit OTT?

Surely better to air the film and let the kiddies debate
it (like what we did at school) than ban it.

What a frikking waste of court time and money! :rant:



(Bloody truck drivers! :mad: :)) ) )




Or maybe I'm wrong and this film is no worse than ECO porn. :eek:

Its because it is not a documentary but just plain eco propaganda :tut:
I'm in Nev's camp with this, I have seen it and I'm not convinced that the contra-stance is any less full of propoganda either. They are all trying to get us to stake our opinion in their camp.

Let the kids pick holes in it and the opposition. Encourage debate and questioning don't stifle it. This is just short of the book-burning morons of yore.:rolleyes:

'An Inconvenient Truth' is so flawed that the movie is effectively just political/eco propaganda...and this moron is being put up for a Peace prize...but Piece (sic) of what I might add.... ;)

Sure the Climate is changing.
We are currently in an Interglacial, during which the last 4 million year or so Ice age retreates for a about 12,000014,000 years after which the Glaciers and ice return with a vengence tiurning most of Northern Europe and Northern USA into an inhospitable 'waste land' .

Since the interglacial has started, the Oceans have risen 110 metres ...pity those poor buggers who lived on the coast about 12000 years or so ago.:eek: :cheese:

Every Generation has their "horrors'. When I was young it was Nuclear Holocoust, then it was the impending Ice age then it was Global warming and now Climate change. What next ;)

'An Inconvenient Truth' is so flawed that the movie is effectively just political propaganda.......

But so many arguments against it are equally or even more flawed.

But with all the time spent pontificating about it, things aren't getting any better

One day a decision will be made one way or the other, and they'll start the programme off and say 'oops. Too late........' :rolleyes:

The science is pretty much solid. Now it's down to the politicians.
One of whom happens to be George W Bush, who either doesn't understand the science, doesn't want to understand the science, or has been told to refute the science at every possible opportunity in order to maximise his personal interests.

To think we fully understand the what the climate works on this planet, is typical arrogance of the Naked Ape ;)
To think we have the right to sit by and watch the planet die without so much as attempting to do anything aobut it is pretty arrogant too, we do share the world with other wonderful animals too, y'know :)

Personally, I've never really cared or bought into any of this gloabal warming bugaboo. But if it teaches kids not to waste so much, and not to rely on transport for every journey then I say fair enough.

Better than the chavvy morons we have here at the moment. If we can attempt to drum even a slight amount of common sense into young kids brains then sure, go for it, why not make them watch this s**t?

:lol:

Well what I understand is that if schools play it they now have to put the other-side of the debate - what personally I think is a good thing. At least it'll get the kiddies thinking about the problem; and reaching their own conclusions. :) :) :)
