“The judge identified nine aspects of An Inconvenient Truth, nine core errors, where Al Gore either misstated the IPCC or prejudicially exaggerated what they found.” John Day is the lawyer for a British parent who sued the British Department
of Education when they tried to distribute An Inconvenient Truth to schools.

beakersFox News Washington Bureau Chief Bill Sammon is under fire this week for asking reporters to be skeptical about climate science.  But we've known from the UN banning Phelim at the Cancun Climate Change Conference to the SEJ cutting off his mic in Wisconsin that reporters are guilty of not asking hard questions of climate change.



But what about the scientists?  Scientists are supposed to achieve a higher level of thinking, separated from emotions and only deterred by cold, hard facts.  Surely, they're not afraid to ask hard questions and can resist the urge to give into their personal political beliefs.  Not so, according to a recent article in Slate.

In the scientific community, only 6 percent affiliated themselves with the Republican party, while 55 percent affiliated with Democrats.  In short, science is suffering from a lack of ideas, skepticism, and healthy debate within the community.  As the article accurately pointed out:

During the Bush administration, Democrats discovered that they could score political points by accusing Bush of being anti-science. In the process, they seem to have convinced themselves that they are the keepers of the Enlightenment spirit, and that those who disagree with them on issues like climate change are fundamentally irrational. Meanwhile, many Republicans have come to believe that mainstream science is corrupted by ideology and amounts to no more than politics by another name.

Sounds like it's time to diversify in the scientific community.  Any scientists want to lone a girl a beaker?

LIARS AND CORRUPTION


Every single individual and organisation which has involved himself/itself in promoting 'climate change' and 'global warming' agendas, has significanty profited in a financial sense , be they 'charities', NGOs or corporate bodies. Some are making billions and for sure , billions are being misappropriated . Gore and his late friend , the convicted fraudster Ken LAy, dreamed up the carbon trading scam and even scientists have become tainted and corrupted by the huge sums of money involved. Of course , politicians are delighted that they have been given the greatest opportunity ever to increase the State's control over us , steal yet more taxes and , needless to say , personally dip their noses into the stinking trough of tainted gravy.

What has been missing is a credible and recognised leader against them. Lord Monckton , British peer , is trying to counter some of the propoganda , but when you have the State broadcasting organisations (like the BBC) opposing you at every turn , you will find it rather difficult to get any air time !

Corruption , lies and graft on the biggest imaginable scale. Even if the planet is warming , which I doubt from what scientific evidence I have read, why should that worry us ? We thrive in the warmth.
