    Producer: teachers won't accept 'Truth'; Nuclear power is back
    Posted on Tuesday, December 26, 2006 @ 17:59:06 EST by vlad

    General solaris writes: U.S. teachers say they cannot show the environmental movie "An Inconvenient Truth" to their students because of a policy against endorsing projects.




    Daily Variety reported Monday the National Science Teachers Association declined the offer by the film's executive producer, Laurie David, to distribute 50,000 copies of the controversial Al Gore global-warming film to its members.

    David, bewildered by the refusal to accept the DVDs, wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post where she argues that that the teachers association had accepted contributions from ExxonMobil, Shell and the National Petroleum Institute, among others, where a "shameless pitch for oil dependence" was alleged.

    The association denies the characterization.

    Not to be detered, David will offer the film to teachers via the Web site participant.net through Jan. 18 on a first-come, first-served basis.

    U.S. EYEING RETURN TO NUCLEAR ENERGY, December 25

    Thanks mainly to Bush administration policy, the United States could soon find itself re-embracing the use of nuclear power.

    The Chicago Tribune reported that the administration has recently supported the creation of several new nuclear plants, and just last week President Bush publicly endorsed the energy source at a news conference.

    "Nuclear power is going to be an essential source, in my judgment, of future electricity for the United States," Bush said at the conference. "Nuclear power is renewable, and nuclear power does not emit one greenhouse gas."

    The government's proposal to increase the number of operating reactors in the nation beyond its current 103 has brought immediate opposition from anti-nuclear activists.

    Those activists claim that besides possible cataclysmic events, such as occurred at Chernobyl or Three Mile Island, new reactors could lead to cost overruns for consumers.

    Since "An Inconvenient Truth" is religious dogma based on faith not on FACT it should be banned under the separation of church and state.

    There is global warming now (and cooling at other times) but humans have little if anything to do with it. Our arrogance of self importance is amazing.

    I would love to know the building method used for nuclear power stations that results in zero greenhouse gas emissions.

    I would love to know the de-commisioning method used for nuclear power stations that results in zero greenhouse gas emissions.

    I would love to know the mining methods used for Uranium that don't result in any greenhouse gas emissions (nuclear powered trucks perhaps!).

    What's really sad is that there are bound to be some people who believe this narrow view of nuclear power.  One thing I found out recently was the environmental disaster that surrounds a Uranium mine.  However since this occurs in "lesser" countries I suppose it's OK !
