From their About page,
Participate.net is a growing community of film lovers and activists who are dedicated to engaging their minds, sharing their passions, and improving the world around them.
So it looks like it’s a separate entity from the group of folks who actually produced the movie. I think it’s important to get this movie into the hands of the science teachers, regardless of the source.
To that end, I have bought and watched the DVD, I’m going to do a write-up of it as time allows over the holidays, and then donate my copy to White Oak High School, right down the road from me.
It really is as captivating as the reviews indicate. I would highly recommend it.
I have an extensive post about the controversy regarding this movie, and the National Science Teachers of
America’s Exxon’s refusal to accept 50,000 free copies of this movie for distribution to their members. Click to read, The NSTA Is Feeding Us A Line.
(And of course to Kate for waking me to tell me this. Of course, she gets something special. 😉 )
This is important, or I wouldn’t be out of bed at this ungodly hour of the morning.
Just so y’know.
