That's why I'm fine with just renting it someday when I really want to see it.

Doesn't that kind of defeat the purpose of this particular movie?

I think that's overly cynical. They actually wanted to give the DVD out free to schools directly but were blocked by the oil lobby. This is their Plan B.

This is their privacy statement:

Thank you.

Please pardon my ignorance, but how exactly were they blocked by the oil lobby?

Oops! My mistake. Thanks.

I saw "For teachers only" but didn't realize that that was specific to the second link only.
