“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.

Propaganda Techniques
Assertion:
Assertion is commonly used in advertising and modern propaganda. An assertion is an enthusiastic or energetic statement presented as a fact, although it is not necessarily true. They often imply that the statement requires no explanation or back up, but that it should merely be accepted without question. Examples of assertion, although somewhat scarce in wartime propaganda, can be found often in modern advertising propaganda. Any time an advertiser states that their product is the best without providing evidence for this, they are using an assertion. The subject, ideally, should simply agree to the statement without searching for additional information or reasoning. Assertions, although usually simple to spot, are often dangerous forms of propaganda because they often include falsehoods or lies.

Bandwagon:

Bandwagon is one of the most common techniques in both wartime and peacetime and plays an important part in modern advertising. Bandwagon is also one of the seven main propaganda techniques identified by the Institute for Propaganda Analysis in 1938. Bandwagon is an appeal to the subject to follow the crowd, to join in because others are doing so as well. Bandwagon propaganda is, essentially, trying to convince the subject that one side is the winning side, because more people have joined it. The subject is meant to believe that since so many people have joined, that victory is inevitable and defeat impossible. Since the average person always wants to be on the winning side, he or she is compelled to join in. However, in modern propaganda, bandwagon has taken a new twist. The subject is to be convinced by the propaganda that since everyone else is doing it, they will be left out if they do not. This is, effectively, the opposite of the other type of bandwagon, but usually provokes the same results. Subjects of bandwagon are compelled to join in because everyone else is doing so as well. When confronted with bandwagon propaganda, we should weigh the pros and cons of joining in independently from the amount of people who have already joined, and, as with most types of propaganda, we should seek more information.

Blatant Hypocracy
It's clearly a case of ideology rather than science and debate. While in the video, they encourage people to RAISE THEIR VOICES in favor of the man made global warming theory, they cannot stand to be challenged and asked questions as we can see in the video where Phelim McAleer get ordered to to stop filming and leave the press conference. RAISE YOUR VOICE? Yes, but only if you accept their story as being the truth. If you have doubts, if you want to know more or do further research, SHUT THE HELL UP! Blatant hypocrisy.

into the light
Paul instead of just the blanked statement this web site is stupid and we should all be scared, back that up with real data. Fear is not always good; Hitler used fear to drive Germany into mass murder. I was scared of the dark as a little kid and would imagine all the terrible things that lived in the darkness. When the lights came on there was nothing. Science true science cannot be the child standing in the dark afraid; it must turn on the lights and let the truth out. Whatever that truth might be it has to stand up to scrutiny.
