Inconvenient Facts for “An Inconvenient Truth”

Posted by greg2213 on January 16, 2010

Once upon a time Al Gore came out with his Science Fantasy/Horror flick An Inconvenient Truth (AIT.) Like an good fantasy it took a bit from “what’s real” and ran from there to interesting conclusions.

What’s interesting about the AIT story, of course, is that people want to base real policy on this fictional work. Here are a couple of links to sites pointing out some of Gore’s fictional points.

From 2006: Lord Monckton’s reply to Gore and a 2nd pdf on the same topic.

2007: A similar debunking from CEI

2007 : How incredibly rational: UK Judge rules that AIT cannot be shown to school kids without a disclaimer pointing out various errors in AIT. Here.

2007: Steyn on Gore – A COUPLE of days before Al Gore was awarded his Nobel Peace prize, Michael Burton, an English High Court judge and apparently a fine film critic, ruled that Al’s Oscar-winner An Inconvenient Truth was prone to “alarmism and exaggeration” and identified nine major factual errors.

2006: A sampling of Scientists’ remarks about AIT

2007: A Harvard editor seems to have an issue with Gore’s hypocrisy. Here’s Newsbuster’s take.

2007: Some questions to ask the Alarmists

2007: Global Warming: The Cold, Hard Facts?

Now, I really don’t begrudge Gore the chance to make a buck, or a lot of bucks. More power to him. If he wants to have a home that’s 50x the size of mine and jet all over the world in a private jet, well, that’s pretty damn cool.

What I DO mind is that he’s selling the Gov on policies that will crush everyone else’s right to try to achieve the same thing. Not to mention what those policies it will do to the people in the undeveloped world. Kindof like Communism. The Exhalted Leaders lead the good life (and so do their associates) while the people suffer.
