Free copies of "An Inconvenient Truth" for educators

A couple weeks back there was news on the internets that 50,000 free copies of the climate change documentary An Inconvenient Truth were rejected by the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) after pressure from Exxon and oil industry advocates. Taking a different approach that bypasses the NSTA, those DVDs are now being offered directly to teachers free of charge viaParticipate.net.

The giveaway ends January 18, or when the DVDs run out. Teachers can request a copy at this link.

I teach freshman composition at Northern Arizona University. I actually tried ordering one of these videos, but it's supposed to take like 6 weeks or so. They have to varify a lot of information. It would probably be way easier if I were a high school english teacher.....oh well. We'll see if it comes.

Great idea though. BTW, culturaldissent.com has moved to undertheconcrete.org....please update your blogroll! Thanks.
