Newspaper prescribes "the Swindle" for schoolchildren

The Vancouver Province newspaper is responding to a suggestion that British Columbia school children should enjoy the Inconvenient Truth by urging educators to also expose B.C.’s young people to a good climate Swindle .

The editorial in the Vancouver Province newspaper today starts out innocently enough with an account of a local businessman, Will Cole-Hamilton, who would like to put a copy of Al Gore’s Inconvenient Truth in every high school in the province of British Columbia.

“And why not?” the editorial states, “the issue of global warming looks set to dominate public discourse for some time to come.”

The editorial then takes a turn into the land of global warming fantasy, suggesting that in the name of “presenting an unbiased” view, B.C. students should also watch Channel 4 documentary The Great Global Warming Swindle.
