'Inconvenient' Controversy Heats Up Again

In the latest (and possibly last) chapter to the saga over former Vice President Al Gore’s global warming movie “An Inconvenient Truth,” The Washington Post reports today that one of the movie’s producers has decided to give away copies of the DVD to the first 50,000 teachers who ask for it. If you’ll remember, producer Laurie David accused the National Science Teacher’s Association of turning down her offer to give them 50,000 copies of "An Inconvenient Truth" to distribute because of the group’s ties to energy companies like Exxon Mobil—a charge the NSTA vigorously denied. Education Week wrote up the brouhaha here.
