The Great Global Warming Swindle is a polemic documentary film that argues against the scientific consensus that global warming is "very likely due to the observed increase in anthropogenic (man-made) greenhouse gas concentrations". - Source: Wikipedia
I read with great interest your article "Heated Discussion," (Metropolitan, May 12). I am particularly concerned about the one-sided view many schoolchildren are getting on global warming. I was pleased to see that some educators have indicated they are presenting both sides of the global-warming issue, but my concern is that this practice is not being implemented uniformly in the nation's schools and a balance view is not being presented to the public at large. "An Inconvenient Truth" has been shown at several area high schools; why has the excellent film "The Great Global Warming Swindle" not been shown? This film was produced and aired in the United Kingdom in March 2007 and also was shown in Australia in the summer of 2007. It not only describes the way the climate works, but also makes the case for the fact that man is not likely to be able to control the climate. It is easy to understand and gives scientific explanations behind the issues. Why is this film not required to be shown to present the other side of the debate?
