Apparently, there has been a judgement rendered in the UK regarding the showing of An Inconvenient Truth in UK public schools, and it’s a mixed blessing. A Judge Burton has listed nine points of “guidance” that British teachers must bring to the classroom in order to show the film.
Thanks to James for the tipoff.
Are the nine points fair? That’s a bit much for discussion in a blog format, so I set up a quick wiki for the purposes of conversation. We’ll see if this works out or fizzles, or worse, if it takes off too far and I get swamped by administrivia. Consider it an experiment. Anyway, rather than trying to get to the bottom of all nine points, why not try to see how far you can get with one of them?
It seems likely that if we do a good job of this, the final result could be contributed as a collaborative RealClimate article.
(And remember, as we say in Austin, Barton Springs Eternal.)
Update: The majority appears to believe the judge is called Burton, not Barton, though the latter appears in many places. As far as I know, Burton does not spring eternal.
