Some Inconvenient Facts

“The man is an embarrassment to US science and its many fine practitioners, a lot of whom know (but feel unable to state publicly) that his propaganda crusade is mostly based on junk science.”

That’s Professor Bob Carter of the Marine Geophysical Laboratory at James Cook University in Australia, talking about Al Gore and his crusade against gullible global warming. Carter should know of which he speaks… he actually studies the climate for a living.

And Carter isn’t alone. Many other scientists who actually study climate, the Arctic, the Antarctic, and other relevant sciences are crying foul over Gore’s “documentary,” An Inconvenient Truththis article neatly summarizes their deconstruction of Gore’s “facts.”

The hero of the piece is Carter, who pulls no punches in giving his opinion of the ex-veep’s crusade:

“Gore’s circumstantial arguments are so weak that they are pathetic. It is simply incredible that they, and his film, are commanding public attention.”

Listening:
Up comes a coaster fast and silent in the night
Over my shoulder all you can see are the pilot lights
No money in our jackets and our jeans are torn
Your hands are cold but your lips are warm
