The BBC reports on an embarrassment for the incredible Mr. Gore, that is the would-be US president, Mr. Al Gore, whose acclaimed documentary on global warming has now to be accompanied by a health warning in English schools, an English judge has ruled.
Mr Gore’s reference in the film to a new scientific study showing that, for the first time, polar bears had actually drowned “swimming long distances – up to 60 miles – to find the ice”. The judge said: “The only scientific study that either side before me can find is one which indicates that four polar bears have recently been found drowned because of a storm.”
A case against the film being shown in schools was brought by school governor Stewart Dimmock, from Dover, a father of two.
His lawyers described the ruling as a “landmark victory”.
Mr Dimmock said: “I am elated with today’s result, but still disappointed that the film is able to be shown in schools.

“If it was not for the case brought by myself, our young people would still be being indoctrinated with this political spin.”
