The Guardian: Eco Soundings: Uncomfortable truth

Wednesday December 13, 2006

If the National Union of Teachers is quick, it might just be able to get hold of 50,000 free DVDs of Al Gore’s film, An Inconvenient Truth, and use them to explain to every child in Britain the reality of climate change.

The DVDs, sitting in a Los Angeles warehouse, were destined for America’s huge National Science Teachers Association, but were declined on the basis that free teaching materials could not be accepted, nor political endorsements given.

Eco Soundings merely notes that the NSTA is funded by Exxon, Shell, the American Petroleum Institute and major car companies.,,1970284,00.html and its sister websites,,,,, and are all owned by John Donovan. There is also a Wikipedia article.
