Our Choice, or Gore's Mandate?
Last week, this book was given to our 8-year old daughter, who is very interested in science: especially geology and meteorology. Our 10-year old son also read it.
When our daughter began scoffing at this book within 2 minutes into it (she asked us if this was supposed to be a "textbook or a fiction book") and asking to use the computer to access various scientific websites in order to verify her own knowledge... we figured there was something missing in this book.
It wasn't long before we realized that Ex-Vice President Gore had absolutely rewritten and retooled much of what science has proven, with some hoodoo kind of patented, untested "new" science- all in order to sell a book. Then, he sprinkled in some pretty scary warnings which implied that the reader's parents caused all the problems. WTH?
Don't waste your money.
This is an utter "Doom & Gloom" fairy tale, albeit a depressing one, for a kid to read! If your children have a private school education, are home-schooled, or at least have an excellent public school education, they will see this tripe for what it is.
And they will NOT respect you for making them read this!
