School Trustee Demands Gore's Movie 
be balanced with UK's skeptical 'Swindle'


27 Apr 07 - Surrey, BC - If teachers are going to use the film An Inconvenient Truth in the classroom, they should also have access to another documentary which challenges the Academy-award winning movie’s premise, says a local school trustee.

Heather Stilwell made the suggestion to her fellow Surrey School Board members Thursday, noting there is a lot of information online arguing that former U.S. vice-president Al Gore’s feature film is a "crock" and based on faulty science.

She said a documentary called The Great Global Warming Swindle, produced by the BBC, counters An Inconvenient Truth and would serve to provide balance for students.

She said she began thinking about the issue after it was reported last week copies of An Inconvenient Truth were being donated to every high school in B.C.

"The public has a right to expect that whatever they’re learning is balanced, especially because there’s so much stuff out there questioning the science of it."
