Science a la Joe Camel -

Op-Ed from Laurie David, one of the producers of An Inconvenient Truth.

She offered 50,000 free copies of the DVD of the movie to the National Science Teachers Association, to distribute to science teachers. NSTA declined, noting that accepting such a gift would put an "unnecessary risk upon the capital campaign, especially targeted supporters."

NSTA corporate supporters include Shell Oil, Exxon Mobil, and the American Petroleum Institute.

NSTA responds here. Seems like their Executive Director is experienced in damage control. Not only does he address Ms. David's accusations of corporate influence, he agrees to help get the DVD out to teachers.
