A Tardy Canadian Tackles An Inconvenient Truth

More Gore-Bashing

The neo-con Frontier Centre for Public Policy, long a promoter of oil-sponsored deniers of climate change, has produced a new “background paper” that challenges the showing of An Inconvenient Truth in Canadian schools on the basis of a 15-month-old UK Court decision.

The report, written by high school social studies teacher and Steinbach, Manitoba city councillor Michael Zwaagstra, declares that “there is no demonstrable causal relationship between the CO2 record and the temperature record at any point in earth’s history,” and goes on to complain that Gore’s movie (which presents this information rather more accurately) should therefore only be allowed into Canadian schools with a stern warning to students.
