“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

obamaYesterday, in a "Do as I say, not as I do" moment Obama asked that federal employees give up unnecessary travel and encouraged them to take public transportation instead of driving cars.  This wasn't an effort to tackling the ever-looming national deficit, but rather a showroom effort to cut carbon emissions.

On the same day of Obama's request, it was revealed that 175 people died in South America this winter from the record-breaking cold.  Not only did people suffer but their livelihoods suffered significantly with many herds dying in the freezing temperatures.  These tragedies occurred in a year, where due to recession, America's carbon output was 7 percent less than previous years.

Perhaps it is time for the current administration to stop putting so much stock into co2's impact, and instead look to making it easier for American businesses to invest in economic developments in developing countries.  Free enterprise will bring desk jobs to South America, and with that I'm sure central heading / air conditioning will follow (along with more Starbucks and Subways).

What it boils down to is if the current administration would like to give the appearance of caring about people, or if they'd like to actually enable them to live better lives.

Just a person trying to figure out what's up
Loved my copy of the documentaary so much that two months ago I took it to my local library and donated it so that the community could weight pseudo-science with logic and reason. I was hoping to stop the fear mongering of school children that is reminiscent of the cold war (blast) readiness that most in my generation had to live with. Well, this evening, after checking in to see if the video was available -- I was dismayed to find that (for no specific reason) it hasn't been approved for shelving.

Travel
How about the messiah set an example by walking everywhere and not take Air Force 1 on pointless jaunts and junkets. The 747 burns a lot of jet fuel.

The DC Metro
Took a nap awhile after reading your post and had this "Really Great Dream" that Obama, himself, was cruisin' along on the "D.C. Metro" on his way to visit Washington's local Acorn facility...
As the "Metro" speeds along, Obama, in an attempt to walk into another car to sell another line of his "Crap" to fellow passengers, he stumbles & fatally falls between the two cars...
And in that wonderful, single, brief, "Glorious" moment...?
We Americans Finally Have Our Country Back...!!!
