FREE SCREENING FRIDAY OCT. 14: THE INCONVENIENT TRUTH BEHIND WAITING FOR SUPERMAN

It has been ONE YEAR since the premiere of Davis Guggenheim’s documentary, WAITING FOR SUPERMAN was released in NYC.

A slick, emotionally-charged advertisement for charter schools, SUPERMAN was promoted relentlessly by the corporate media… and flopped at the box-office.

But did you know that a group of NYC public school teachers and parents produced their OWN film in response?

This new documentary, created with NO BUDGET AT ALL, tells another side to the story — the side of public school parents, teachers and students who are fighting for REAL reform.

It has been ONE YEAR since the premiere of Davis Guggenheim’s documentary, WAITING FOR SUPERMAN was released in NYC

  1. Do you know if there are plans for this film to be released in other cities throughout the U.S.? If it came to Berkeley, CA, I would be interested in watching it.

  2. Previously reported dapcresincies between the amount of warming near the surface and higher in the atmosphere have been used to challenge the reliability of climate models and the reality of human induced global warming. Specifically, surface data showed substantial global-average warming, while early versions of satellite and radiosonde data showed little or no warming above the surface. This significant discrepancy no longer exists because errors in the satellite and radiosonde data have been identified and corrected. New data sets have also been developed that do not show such dapcresincies. See-also previous RC posts.
