Skeptics Call Gore's Movie SciFi



From CNSNews.com: In response to former Vice President Al Gore's Academy Award-winning documentary, "An Inconvenient Truth," climate change skeptics called the film a "sci-fi disaster" movie. "Al Gore put global warming on the map," said Marlo Lewis, senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, at a Capitol Hill press conference on Friday. He called "An Inconvenient Truth" the "most politically influencing documentary." But Lewis added: "Nearly every significant statement that Vice President Gore makes regarding climate science and climate policy is either one-sided, misleading, exaggerated, speculative or wrong."

Lewis outlines these arguments in a 140-page congressional working paper released Friday, ahead of Gore's trip to Washington, D.C., to provide congressional testimony on global warming. To check it out in detail, click HERE.

He said the movie "purport[s] to be a non-partisan, non-ideological exposition of climate science. In reality, the film is a computer-enhanced lawyer's brief for global warming alarmism and energy rationing. The only facts and studies Gore considers are those convenient to his scare-them-green agenda," he said.

Lewis said Gore "vastly overstates carbon dioxide's importance" in climate change, noting that the 1930s were warmer than current temperatures. "Our parents or grandparents somehow survived that crisis, and I think we will, too," he said sarcastically.

Thank goodness. Let's hope it makes the front page!

Was channel surfing the other day and happened upon Oprah begging her viewers to go see this most important documentary of Algore's. ARRRGGGGGHH!

Camo,
I hear Al Gore has been challenged to debate an eminent British scientist on the subject. I hope Al's got the guts to take him up.

Marge,
Oprah is clearly not a scientist. I don't know if she's goin' with the sensationalism or really believes in man-made global-warming. You never know with people in the entertainment business.

Oh, and thanks for the b-day wish!

(:D) Regards...

Not to mention that by the mid-1940s War-time Europe was experiencing some of the coldest winters on record. Gore is a self-important Leftist fool. Dangerous, as Leftists are.
