Alaska School Authorities: Watching a Documentary Film More Dangerous Than Having Abortion

Our documentary Not Evil Just Wrong is on tour in Alaska. The film asks if Global Warming science is really settled but perhaps more importantly focuses on the damage that proposed “solutions” will have on the poorest people on the planet.

Read more:

Not Evil Just Wrong examines the true cost of expensive energy for those who already live in poverty or fixed incomes.


One of the highlights of the Alaska tour was a visit to Colony High School in Wasilla where we screened an excerpt of the documentary and took questions from students.

Sarah Palin, Wasilla’s most famous resident, did not attend but a large number of children were there and seemed interested and asked interesting questions.

Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth has been shown many times, in many classes at the school and the students seemed to appreciate an alternative.

However it seems that the school authorities were not so keen on the alternative.

In an unprecedented move they insisted that any student who wanted to see an excerpt of Not Evil Just Wrong must have a permission slip from their parents.

The school authorities put no such condition in place before screening An Inconvenient Truth even though both documentaries have the same MPAA rating.

Perhaps even more significantly, Alaska is a state where the state can arrange an abortion for a student without notifying their parents. Regardless of your opinions on abortion (or the issue of parental notification) the Alaskan authorities seem intent on sending out a clear message.

If you want to watch a documentary that challenges the liberal environmental consensus we will introduce barriers to access. If you want to have an abortion parents don’t need to know and we can probably fit it in after gym class.

So sad.
I remember that we needed permission slips signed in order to NOT watch the sex. ed. videos in 4th grade. And look where we are today.. Now we need a permission slip for our own children to watch the truth.. Amazing how corrupt our systems are. Thanks for this article. I will pass this around..

Please don't dheapen an important issue...
That the same teenagers who may have been shown An Inconvenient Truth multiple times needed to secure parental permission before watching Not Evil, Just Wrong, is distressing, indeed.

However, it seems to me that dragging abortion into the discussion is unnecessarily provocative & risks turning off many people who might otherwise agree with you. The remark that an abortion "can probably [be] fit...in after gym glass" strikes this reader as unnecessarily smarmy and callous.

Just sayin'...

The issue undiscussed is cheap indeed.
Using a statement that seem smarmy and callous, but is actually tongue in cheek, if a little audacious, seems to me to be entirely appropriate. Whichever side you stand on where abortion is concerned, school districts being legally able to help under consent age children aquire a medical procedure without the knowledge of their parents is, in my opinion, as outrageous as school districts helping students aquire a breast enlargement, without obtaining consent from the parents. Don't like my analogy? Why? Proponents of abortion say 'it's a womans right to choose what is done to her body'. If that is true, and a fetus is, as abortionists claim, 'nothing more than a mass of tissue, like mole or a cyst', then abortion is nothing more than an elective, potentially cosmetic, procedure, which should NOT be funded by a government sponsored organization like planned parenthood. IF it IS about a real life then it also should be monitored much more closely than a mere plastic surgical augmentation or "correction". If it's alive, abortions shoudn't be done. If it's not alive, it should be an elective procedure, which is the sole responsibility of the pregnant, (See: sexually inconvenienced, ) woman. smilies/shocked.gif

Rant ends. We now return you to your regularly scheduled Global Warming Dubunkment. Lol!smilies/wink.gif

Send us the documentary, too
Hello from Latvia where the national TV channel LTV1 showed A. Gore’s film 'Inconvenient Truth' some time ago. It impressed me. However, I think we must see "Not Evil Just Wrong" in order to have a better judgment on the issue of the global warming.
By the way, it's been so cold at the place of my living for many recent days! Only today (local time is 10.30 p.m. now) we have had all day snowing and a bit warmer winter day - around minus 10 C (by Celsius). We had the temperature even below minus 30. I wish we could have just a little bit of warming right here!
