The Great Global Warming Campaign

Here's a great idea for a very worthwhile campaign from Officially Screwed:

Calling all sane people!!

For all of you who are up for an equal perspective education, I have made it easy for you to email all the current education ministers in the nation and ask them to show the British Channel 4 movie, The Great Global Warming Swindle to all students that were shown Al Gore’s Convenient Lie.

This would give the students two perspectives of the global warming debate and let them see what both sides have to say. Considering the global warming debate is so controversial, this would be the right thing to do.

You can easily send this email with your own email program by clicking the link below.

I also encourage any other bloggers out there to include similar code on their website.

Email Education Ministers.

If you are interested, the following list outlines who is emailed via the link above.

British Columbia: Shirley Bond (Prince George-Mount Robson)
Alberta: Ron Liepert (Calgary West)
Saskatchewan: Pat Atkinson (Saskatoon Nutana)
Manitoba: Peter Bjornson (Gimli)
Ontario: Kathleen O. Wynne (Don Valley West)
Quebec: Jean-Marc Fournier (Chateauguay) (he was the last education minister before the election call
New Brunswick: Kelly Lamrock (Fredrickton-Fort Nashwaak)
Newfoundland and Labrador: Joan Burke (St. George’s-Stephenville East)
Prince Edward Island: Mildred A. Dover (Tracadie-Fort Augustus)
Nova Scotia: Karen Casey (Colchester North)
Yukon: Patrick Rouble (Southern Lakes)
Nunavut: Ed Picco (Iqualuit East)
Northwest Territories: Charles Dent (Frame Lake)

Let's put some pressure on our Education Ministers for a little balance in the classroom! Click that email link above - it's easy! Drop a note in the comments to let us know when you've sent your email.

Great stuff! Email sent per your draft. It would be interesting to know how many classes actually get to see it.

@jr - thanks for taking the time to send this message. I also sent mine shortly after making this post.

Let's hope that lots of other follow suit. It just might make a difference.

It's downright scary how many of the young people have taken this on as a religious, fundamentalist war. All common sense is gone right out the window. The ends justifies the means with them and they don't care who gets hurt.

What's even more scarey is the government's are basing policy such as energy investment on bad science and fear mongering.
