During Ann and Phelim's visit to Alaska we found out that at Colony High School that students were required to turn int permission sips to wat Not Evil Just Wrong. This was not required when An Inconvenient Truth was shown to the students. Not all schools in Alaska took this view, when later that week the Juneau Empire reported Juneau School District Superintendent Glenn Gelbrich said he'd be interested in seeing the movie.
"It would be a matter of how might that movie be presented so that we do in fact have balance, which is what they are calling for," he said. "Because science is not as exact as we sometimes suggest, it would be helpful if the kids could completely understand what the scientific questions are. If showing this movie and other movies about the same issues with a different perspective would give the kids a context in which they could do their own scientific research, we'll try and get our hands on a copy of the video and take a look at it and show it to our science teachers."
