this science fact brought to you by exxon mobil

Lest we think Exxon Mobile is going soft, "An Inconvenient Truth" producer Laurie David reminds us of a sad fact: materials for science classes in many US schools are provided by corporate America, companies like Exxon, Monsanto, lumber giant Weyerhauser, and the American Petroleum Institute.

And the schools, fearful that grants and materials might dry up, are refusing to show "An Inconvenient Truth" to their students. So instead of learning about their increasingly-inconvenient future (which won't only damage the human species), they get propaganda lessons on climate change as imagined by Exxon's PR flacks.
