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.
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.
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.
