Courts require balance to Gore-Presentation

UK School Reverses on Showing of Al Gore Climate Change Film

The Times of London, Thursday, October 04, 2007 Will Pavia

A truck driver from Kent has forced the British government to rewrite guidance for schools that want to show Al Gore’s climate change film, An Inconvenient Truth.

Stewart Dimmock, a father of two, brought a High Court action against the screening of the documentary in schools, claiming that it was “politically partisan” and “sentimental”.

His lawyers argued that the film contained serious scientific inaccuracies. They accused the government of backing the film, by the former U.S. Vice President, as a way of “brainwashing” pupils on global warming.

Mr. Dimmock, a school governor with children aged 11 and 14, said at the outset of the hearing, “I wish my children to have the best education possible, free from bias and political spin, and Mr. Gore’s film falls far short of the standard required.”

Yesterday the High Court judge Justice Burton said that the film did promote “partisan political views.”
In an indication of his ruling, he said that schools should follow the new guidance, which calls for balance when showing the film, which has been sent to more than 3,500 schools and is aimed at 11 to 14-year-olds. He said that he intended to give his full ruling next week.

Given that you buy into the hypothesis that man-made CO2 causes global warming and that you then buy into the accuracy of the UNs-IPC climate models:
The latest EPA estimates of CO2 vs Cost vs Temperature are:
One Trillion $ (just first 10 years) ==> -23 ppm CO2 ==> -0.17 Deg C = => by 2095
Is this what the Global Warming hysteria all about?
Clearly we need lots of debate to shine as much light on this issue as possible

British Court Rules Al Gore Film Exaggerated Climate Claims
Justice Barton of the UK High Court in London --10/10/07
-
Al Gore’s award-winning climate change documentary was littered with nine inconvenient untruths, a judge ruled yesterday.
-
In what is a rare judicial ruling on what children can see in the class-room, Justice Barton was at pains to point out that the “apocalyptic vision” presented in the film was politically partisan and not an impartial analysis of the science of climate change.
