    I have two engineers in my falimy who work for XOM and I’m sure they would share the bias of Mr. Moorman. And I don’t remember the movie aserting that oceans would rise anything like 300 feet; it was more a matter of inches, I recall.What I do remember is an emphasis on the potential collapse of the ocean’s currents’ thermo conveyor belt and the dire consequences of another Ice Age from continued melting of the Ice Caps.I feel compelled now to see the movie again and to finally sell my stock in XOM because they are part of the problem and not even flirting with a solution. By the way, XOM is the stock market symbol for Exxon which also suggests another bias on Mr. Moorman’s part. I would not be surprised if he were an employee of that company.Exxon is getting what it pays money for (besides tax and PR advantages) by the NSTA’s prior restraint’ of letting classroom teachers even receive the offering of free material they could present just about anyway they chose (or not).I sure wish we’d had more films in my school’s science courses; especially any as well presented as is Mr. Gore’s.
