It could be 1 of many methods used to get kids to use there minds. Perhaps the teacher was going to have an assigement as to what was worg with the film.

It is never a bad thing to get involved in your childs education, just remeber that education is not always positive, sometimes education is negitive, meaning that peopel need to be taught the "bad" stuff just as much as they need tobe taughtthe "good" stuff.

I woudl suggest that you ask how the film fit into what was being taught.
You should have paid better attention in school

well as sort of previously mentioned is that people are trying to rationalize this situation over a very short segment in the earth's history. you cannot be accurate on the earths climate direction over the span of 100 years of analysis. we may just be lucky (or unlucky) enough to be living at the point when the earth is undergoing a natural change cycle. we cannot expalain how the pyramids at geza were built, but for some reason we know all about global warming and what caused it. this is just as assanine as the fact that the oil industry is sooo powerful, powerful enough to elect presidents, gouge consumers, however their power falls just short of being able to over power the tree huggers. and people think there are no conspiracies.

Well his teacher called me last night at about 9 PM.
We spoke for nearly an hour. It was a very interesting conversation.

I don't have time right now to go into details, I have a busy day.
I'll get into it later.

I've worked in the energy business for 12 years. I've been buying and selling electricity all of those years. I've worked for the largest regulated utility in the US, an unregulated trading subsidiary of a large utility, and now work for a large municipal utility. I know from personal experience that Gore's so-called facts about renewable energy are bullshit. It's political rhetoric aimed at the uneducated masses that can be swayed to support him. A few years ago, all those scientists were screaming about the coming ice age. Now, they are screaming about global warming. Gore has a monetary interest if making people believe his spiel about global warming and "carbon footprints". He has an ownership stake in a company that brokers carbon off-set credits. The more people he can bullshit into buying and selling carbon credits, the richer he becomes. Perception is reality. He has kept this crap in peoples' faces long enough that they believe it without question.

Natural....

But besides that, in one of my history classes we watched many of the Charlton Heston movies that might be considered.... But we were told up front that theses were just one set of beliefs.

Default Im still confused

When I was in school they kept saying we would freeze to death. They said that glaciers would move south and destroy everything. I wish they would make up their minds. How many remember Tipper Gore and that evil rock and roll music

Let me guess. You are about 19 years old. Typical response to an arguement in which you are way over your head. You and AJ must have gone to the same school for the mentally challenged.
