Science not for kids

December 10, 2006 pm31 6:00 pm

Al Gore’s “Inconvenient Truth” is causing a fuss, again. Apparently Paramount agreed to provide DVDs to lots of science teachers (I can’t see where the number 50,000 came from, but it sounds ballpark) through the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) (which I frankly had never heard of, but that makes sense since I don’t teach science).

Anyhow, NSTA refuses, and my guess (government pressure) seems at least partially off: As U Dream of Janie documents here on her blog, cozy oil company relationships may be a larger, direct factor.

(You can view the trailer here.)

For what its worth, UFTers were distributing background on this to other UFTers at last week’s Delegate Assembly in Brooklyn (it was packed, but that’s another story).
