    My apologies if this has been posted but I could not find it after searching. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XttV2C6B8pU If the video gets moved or removed, just search YouTube by the title: "The Great Global Warming Swindle". This was shown in the U.K. on 8 March and will probably not be shown in the U.S. But thanks to Al Gore inventing the internet for us, we can still watch it. It is about 75 min long but is well worth the time and clearly destroys all of Gore's movie point by point. And with real scientific data and real scientists.
