Al Gore Wins Nobel Prize, Despite Film Inaccuracies

Al Gore, and the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change have been jointly awarded the Nobel Prize for “their efforts to build up and disseminate knowledge about man-made climate change”.

I think Al Gore deserves credit for his part in articulating the issues to the masses, although I did find his film “An Inconvenient Truth” over the top in places. The UK government seems to think it’s a good way to make responsible citizens out of the next generation as they decided to screen the film in more than 3,500 secondary schools. However, a school governor in Kent then objected to the film being shown to his children, because he said it contained inaccuracies and political propaganda.

Judge Michael Burton identified nine inaccuracies in the “political” film but ruled that it could still be shown if accompanied by guidance notes.
