Warning: if you visited the Grand Canyon over the past three years and bought a book about the Grand Canyon at the bookstore called Grand Canyon: A Different Tale, there’s a good change you’re geologically challenged:
HOW OLD IS THE GRAND CANYON? PARK SERVICE WONâ€™T SAY
“In August 2003, Park Superintendent Joe Alston attempted to block the sale at park bookstores of Grand Canyon: A Different View by Tom Vail, a book claiming the Canyon developed on a biblical rather than an evolutionary time scale. NPS Headquarters, however, intervened and overruled Alston. To quiet the resulting furor, NPS Chief of Communications David Barna told reporters and members of Congress that there would be a high-level policy review of the issue.
According to a recent NPS response to a Freedom of Information Act request filed by PEER, no such review was ever requested, let alone conducted or completed.”
We wouldn’t want to offend people ageologists (people who don’t believe is geology) by pulling book that supports their ageological opinions over facts, would we?
