Propaganda warning, not for BC

BC is getting quite the global warming education, all paid for by BC taxpayers, of course.

Interesting that the type of message we're being bombarded with is similar to one that was strongly criticized by the British High Court in 2007.

The claims made in the government’s ads are similar to those made in Al Gore's film An inconvenient Truth. Mr. Gore suggests that Hurricane Katrina was caused by global warming. The B.C. government's ads claim, for example, that: “the wildfires of 2003" were caused by global warming.

However, the British High Court's expert testified that one-off events such as Hurricane Katrina cannot be attributed to global warming. The same would hold for the wildfires in B.C. In fact, Britain's High Court ruled if a teacher showing An Inconvenient Truth in class and did not explain it only told one side of the story, the teacher would be in breach of that countries Education Act and guilty of political indoctrination.

The citizen's of B.C. do not benefited from the same warning.
