An inconvenient idiot

My 11 yo saved up their allowance to buy the book An Inconvenient Truth, a companion to the film. It's coming out in a YA version soon.

Meanwhile, our neighbors to the north have been scared off by a bully. As the AP reports, "This week in Federal Way [Washington] schools, it got a lot more inconvenient to show one of the top-grossing documentaries in U.S. history, the global-warming alert "An Inconvenient Truth."

After a parent who supports the teaching of creationism and opposes sex education complained about the film, the Federal Way School Board on Tuesday placed what it labeled a moratorium on showing the film. The movie consists largely of a computer presentation by former Vice President Al Gore recounting scientists' findings. Al Gore's documentary about global warming may not be shown unless the teacher also presents an "opposing view."

"Condoms don't belong in school, and neither does Al Gore. He's not a schoolteacher," said Frosty Hardison, a parent of seven who also said that he believes the Earth is 14,000 years old. "The information that's being presented is a very cockeyed view of what the truth is. ... The Bible says that in the end times everything will burn up, but that perspective isn't in the DVD."

Praise the Lord! Now I understand the earth's warming up is all part of God's plan, not man's destruction. People like Frosty give other believers a bad name.
