“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

The 'Cinematic Wing' Of The Tea Parties

A day after Sunday's phenomenal premiere of Not Evil Just Wrong, Phelim appeared on Fox News' "Your World" with Neil Cavuto to discuss the emergence of "the cinematic wing of the tea party movement."

"These are people who have been ignored by both parties, they tell me, not just the Democrats," Phelim said. "They've been ignored by both parties who seem to think that they're only useful for taking money off them and spending it. And they're saying to both parties: 'Stop it. Stop taking our money. Listen to us.'"

Lou Dobbs Hosts Environmental Face-Off

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."

Phelim Talks Journalistic Ethics With Neil Cavuto

Phelim took the Society of Environmental Journalists to task Monday in a Fox News appearance on Neil Cavuto's "Your World." He blasted the leaders of the group for defending Al Gore's right to dodge inconvenient questions about the nine lies in his movie An Inconvenient Truth.

"Al Gore not answering questions is normal," Phelim said, but journalists should know better than to aid and abet his evasiveness.

"Environmental journalists unfortunately tend to be environmentalists rather than journalists," he added. "They have never found an environmental organization that's ever exaggerated, that's ever told a lie, and there is. ... I want environmental journalists to actually ask them difficult questions. It's not an awful request."

Phelim started the day with an appearance on "Fox & Friends." "Sadly, at the moment journalists seem to think that their job is to protect people in power ... and shut down the journalist," he said.

Australian Praise For Not Evil Just Wrong

Read more...The hysteria about global warming is "the world's greatest-ever scare campaign," Bob Carter wrote in Australia's Quadrant Online, and Not Evil Just Wrong can help undermine the fear-mongering and save Australians from destructive emissions regulations.

Carter's review cover key plot points in the documentary and snapshots of the most compelling and humorous moments. Here are excerpts of the review:

One of the greatest strengths of the film is the archival film footage that the producers have unearthed of some of the key players in the drama. For instance, it is fascinating to see Paul Erlich in grainy black and white asserting back in the 1970s that the world had "no chance of reaching the year 2000."

... In what has proved to be a sensational publicity coup for the film, footage of Stanford University's Stephen Schneider, filmed with his agreement, was withdrawn after legal threats from the University. ... Even those most trusting of academic authority must at this point surely be inclined to ask, "Just what has Professor Schneider got to hide?"

Carter ends with this admonition to Australians: "Watch this film, and use the knowledge that you will gain to lobby your senator to vote against the Australian emissions-trading bill."

What Global Warming Hysteria Means For Kansas

Read more...Coal-generated power is essential to keeping energy affordable and people employed across America, and Kansas will be hit particularly hard if the country adopts a global warming tax. Ann made those points today in a op-ed for the Wichita Eagle.

Here is an excerpt from the piece:

Jobs already are at stake in western Kansas, where global-warming hysteria has delayed Sunflower Electric Power Corp.'s plans to construct a coal-fired generator. The project is essential to meeting Kansas' power needs over the next 10 to 20 years, and it will keep energy rates lower for the state's residents.

It also will boost the economy and create thousands of jobs during construction and many years of operation. That's real money for real people -- and income in the form of tax revenue for the state.

The op-ed appeared a day after Ann's speech to the Wichita Rotary Club about global warming hysteria and the premiere of Not Evil Just Wrong. Here are some reader reactions, pro and con:

  • I have read and researched enough to know that a huge amount of the "science" of global warming is blatantly falsified, but what do you expect out of an industry that provides science grants based on adherence to a political agenda?
  • Support for cap-and-trade has evaporated. ... The Senate will [be] wise to bury this complex and risky legislation.
  • While I am not in line with all aspects of the environmental movement, it does amaze me how many Kansans take the head-in-the-sand approach to it. I mean, man has been nonstop polluting the planet for the last 120 years or so, and Kansans just get behind the anti-global-warming (Republican) movement.
  • The economic downturn has hit Ireland particularly hard. ... It's not surprising that an Irish filmmaker has a skewed outlook and would quote anything from the Heritage Foundation as fact.
  • China builds two unregulated coal power plants a week. Nothing we do can offset that. This is all about controlling your lives, emptying your wallets and making sure you are all miserable Third-Worlders.
