Phelim's encounter with Al Gore at the Society of Environmental Journalists last week captured the attention of Lou Dobbs on CNN.
Dobbs included video footage of Phelim's inconvenient question to Gore in a news segment. At the close of that report, Dobbs chastised Gore for once again pushing the myth that polar bears are drowning because of global warming. "It turns out they didn't," Dobbs said. "That's sort of straightforward and a simple fact, isn't it?"
Dobbs also invited Phelim onto the show to debate Fred Krupp, president of the Environmental Defense Fund. Phelim blasted Gore for repeatedly avoiding public questions about his movie An Inconvenient Truth and the factual errors it contains.
"As the organizer said, this was the first time in four years he had agreed to take questions from reporters. That's a disgrace," Phelim said, adding that it's "bizarre" for Gore to contend that the world is in crisis but avoid questions about that doomsday claim. "I must believe that he doesn't really believe the world is about to end."
Phelim also refuted Krupp's flawed arguments that the globe is still warming. "Those great climate models that say we're all going to die about 2050 missed this cooling period," Phelim said. "In fact, if it cools much longer, it'll be cooling longer than it warmed."
