For months, conservative radio talk show hosts like Rush Limbaugh have railed against U.S. public schools for showing the Al Gore movie "An Inconvenient Truth" in classrooms across the country. Limbaugh and many regular Americans do not believe that man made global warming is real and while there is no doubt that the world is warming, Rush Limbaugh believes it is a result of natural Earth cycles and not caused by man. There are no two (2) people on Earth more at political opposites than Rush Limbaugh and Al Gore. While both men have their true believers, most moderate Americans consider both men to be a little bit nuts in their extremist views.
In the U.K. recently a court said that the Al Gore movie, "An Inconvenient Truth" should carry political warnings before it is shown to students there. That court decision, in a country that is much more liberal than the United States, proves that there really are inaccuracies in this Al Gore movie and public schools in the United States should consider doing the same thing. I do get concerned about political indoctrination in the public school system here in the United States. While adults are free to view political discourse from many different angles and fight for what they truly believe in, we should leave school children out of these political battles and let them see all sides of an issue - then make up their own minds about what is truth and what is hoax when they grow up.
Political extremism is hard enough on adults that are trying to get the real facts about the important issues of the day without subjecting school children to the same political non-sense. Unfortunately, there are teachers in the U.S. public school system that believe everything presented in Al Gore's movie, "An Inconvenient Truth" because these same teachers politically agree with Al Gore. The issue of Global Warming is settled in the fact that the Earth is getting warmer, the issue as to whether man is the cause of increasing Earth temperatures is not settled and that fact has been debated by scientist for many years. It is important for the extremist ideas of Al Gore and Rush Limbaugh to be excluded from academic studies for minors in the United States in order for our kids to be able to grow up and make their own decisions about what is right and wrong without political indoctrination from either the right or left.
