Alan Johnson and David Miliband have just announced that a DVD of Al Gore's film on climate change is to be sent to every secondary school in the country. They say the debate over climate change is "over". Whatever Gore's movie's merits, it is not the job of government to indoctrinate children. I'm sure they also think the debate on many issues is "over". This is a very dangerous precedent to set.
UPDATE: As you can see by my lack of posting today, I have been otherwise engaged for most of the day (sampling fresh air in Devon, since you ask). I have now read through the Comments on this and the various posts on other blogs linking to it. It seems people seem to want to badge me with being a 'Climate Change Denier' just because I take issue with this movie being sent to schools. I would have exactly the same opinion if a government sponsored DVD giving the other side of the argument was being sent to schools.
