Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth is an impressive, convincing piece of work. It would put the fear of climate change in the heart of any reasonable person.
Problem is, a lot of it overstates the case and the most of the rest is simply not true.
But it supports the current politically-correct storyline of manmade global warming caused by vile environment-hating governments (i.e., Republican and Conservative) in collusion with greedly industrialized corporations. It fits the simplicitic notion of man=bad mother/nature=good).
So it's understandable that it is now being mandated to be shown in public schools in Canada.
Problem is, it will not be shown in a critical thinking class; it will be shown to indoctrinate; it will function as propaganda.
For example, it is unlikely that The Great Global Warming Swindle will be shown alongside of it, or that an article by Iain Murray "Gorey Truths - 25 Inconvenient Truths for Al Gore" will be presented to aid in critical analysis.
Mr. Murray's article is well-worth reading. 25 pithy points.
