“The judge identified nine aspects of An Inconvenient Truth, nine core errors, where Al Gore either misstated the IPCC or prejudicially exaggerated what they found.” John Day is the lawyer for a British parent who sued the British Department
of Education when they tried to distribute An Inconvenient Truth to schools.

high-gas-prices-hurt-consumer-spendingCollege students are known for their apathy, but the prospect of a future where the American Dream is in jeopardy has a way of capturing the interest of even the most disinterested youth.

That explains the phenomenal turnout for the Oregon State University screening of Not Evil Just Wrong on Sunday. About 750 people attended the show in Corvallis, according to Dr. Nicholas Drapela. Here's the account he sent by e-mail:

Milam Auditorium, where the screening was held, seats a little over 700 people. Those who showed up late ended up standing in the back looking for seats. Even the balcony was filled.

It was mostly college students, but there were a significant number of people from the community outside the university of all ages who came. The youngest I saw was about 11, and the oldest was about 85. ... Overall, a great success.

Yavapai College professor Terry Lovell, meanwhile, reports that some 600 people attended the premiere he hosted in Prescott, Ariz. And nearly 50 more attended the screening at Washington College in Chestertown, Md.
