Britian Judge Cites Errors in Gore Documentary

LONDON (AP) -- A British judge says Al Gore's Oscar-winning environmental documentary contains nine scientific errors or omissions.

The judge ruled on a challenge from a school official who did not want the film shown to students.

High Court Judge Michael Burton said the film "An Inconvenient Truth" was alarming and exaggerated.

He did say the points about the causes and likely effects of climate change were broadly accurate.

The judge said teachers will have to be careful not to endorse Gore's political views when they present it to pupils.
