  • Need some help with a counter punch to the Al Gore non-fiction movie

    I am the proud father of a 15 year old daughter, who very effectively challenged her "science" teacher today. They finshed watching the Al Gore movie and were asked to state 5 facts about the move and write a thesis about global warming. She politely challenged the teacher about how can they write a thesis without knowing about the other side. So, this is were you all come in - I know there is a counter punch movie out there that states that global warming is a natural cycle. Someone please let me know, so she can take it to...

    The Earth Times ^ | 13 Feb 2008
    Record-setting cold weather has killed more than 8,000 cattle and 100,000 hectares of paddy rice in northern Vietnam since mid-January, officials said Tuesday. Most of the cattle have died in northern mountainous provinces, where temperatures during the month-long cold spell have sometimes dropped to below zero Celsius, a rarity in Vietnam. "We fear that the number of cattle killed by coldness and shortage of food in northern provinces will keep rising in the coming days," ... The cold spell, which the National Hydrometeorology Forecast Center says is the longest ever in Vietnam, has also killed up to 100,000 hectares of...

    The cover of the Aug.13, 2007, issue of Newsweek sports a very active sun with the title "Global Warming is a Hoax." But the cover story is not about how the man-caused global warming hysteria is a hoax. Oh, no, it is just the opposite. It is a diatribe about how those who are skeptical about man's influence on climate are denying the truth and are undermining true science.

    Killer dolphins baffle marine experts By Nigel Blundell Last Updated: 12:01pm GMT 25/01/2008 It's hard to visualise but the intelligent and ever-friendly dolphin can also be a determined killer. New evidence has been compiled by marine scientists that prove the normally placid dolphin is capable of brutal attacks both on innocent fellow marine mammals and, more disturbingly, on its own kind. Film taken of gangs of dolphins repeatedly ramming baby porpoises, tossing them in the air and pursuing them to the death has solved a long-term mystery of what causes the death of so many of these harmless mammals -...

    Previous Record Dates Back To 1894. It certainly made for quite the winter wonderland on this Christmas Day, and provided quite the surprise to residents. “I think we expected a few flurries and there's probably eight or nine inches now. It's just like Norman Rockwell," . Denver officially recorded 7.8 inches of snow on Christmas Day. The storm dropped the most snowfall in Denver on Christmas Day in more than 100 years. The previous all-time record for snowfall on Dec. 25 in Denver was 6.2 inches, recorded in handwritten records in 1894. Meteorologists say the latest storm boosted Denver's December...

We have damage to a starboard lifeboat and a little bit forward," ... the ship apparently suffered no serious damage. Hansen said the power outage lasted 40 to 50 minutes and sent the vessel adrift against the glacier, where it...

The National Weather Service in Gray, Maine, said Concord, where New Hampshire records are kept, beat the previous record of 43 inches of snow in December by an inch and a half. That record was set in 1876. Overall, the storm left 10.1 inches in Concord, and more in other parts of the state.

    Just sitting down to lunch a few minutes ago, channel surfing, and CSPN2 had an Al Gore Booksining repeat from June 2006. The segment opens with a bookstore employee giving out line placement numbers and oh my, the wide eyed sheeple were in a kind of worship mode. Then, in walked His Warmness, I think I heard a halleujah in the background. Then the signing process began. These vacant eyed sheeple, with stacks of his propganda filed through, each offering platitudes to the Goreacle. My point, you may ask? Has anyone on FR ever read this book, An Inconvenient Truth,...

    A top executive of Dubai-based carrier Emirates on Thursday rubbished Nobel Peace Prize winner Al Gore's Oscar-winning documentary on climate change, saying he did not believe the film's scientific theory on global warming. "Don't talk to me about global warming... I just do not buy it whatsoever," Maurice Flanagan, Emirates executive vice chairman, said at a regional aviation conference in Singapore. "Al Gore's 'Inconvenient Truth' is absolute rubbish,"

    Earth Shoe Academies by: Malcolm A. Kline, October 30, 2007 Academics like to cultivate an image of themselves as cutting edge. Actually, while they may be more up-to-date than flat-earth theories, they are frequently not quite as far ahead of the curve as earth shoes. “The issue of climate change has entered its rock concert/college curriculum phase, which is a sure indicator that the issue has peaked and will begin a long, slow fade in the public mind,” author Steven F. Hayward writes in a column that appeared in the October Carolina Journal. “Simultaneous ‘Live Earth’ rock concerts were staged...

    A COUPLE of days before Al Gore was awarded his Nobel Peace prize, Michael Burton, an English High Court judge and apparently a fine film critic, ruled that Al's Oscar-winner An Inconvenient Truth was prone to "alarmism and exaggeration" and identified nine major factual errors. For example, the former vice-president predicts a rise in sea levels of 6m "in the near future". "The Armageddon scenario he predicts," declared Burton, "is not in line with the scientific consensus." I'll say. The so-called scientific consensus of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change suggests rising sea levels across the next century of somewhere...
  • Our View: Al Gore's reputation as Nobel Prize winner rises on cloud of hot air

    10/13/2007 5:13:15 PM PDT · by george76 · 10 replies · 299+ views
    They just don't make Nobel Prizes the way they used to. That's the feeling we get after hearing that Al Gore was named co-winner of the Nobel Peace Prize yesterday for his global warming alarmism. The other co-winner was the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations group of scientists. It was easy enough to understand how Hollywood awarded Gore an Oscar for his climate movie ''An Inconvenient Truth.'' The Academy Award judges live in the land of make-believe. But the Nobel is a serious prize and its judges are supposed to do better work than the movie crowd....

    Al Gore now has a Nobel Peace Prize to pair with his Academy Award for "An Inconvenient Truth." But neither accolade makes him any less a liar. As it did when it gave the prize to Jimmy Carter in 2002, the Norwegian Nobel Committee honored Mr. Gore and the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change to make a left-wing political statement. Though it did not mention "An Inconvenient Truth" by name, the committee spoke glowingly of Mr. Gore's political activity, lectures, films and books for reducing the "danger of violent conflicts and wars." The film details Mr. Gore's arguments on...

    Watching Al Gore's movie about global warming is now part of the job at City Hall. The city of Albuquerque this week began sending its blue-collar and clerical workers to a morning-long seminar on energy efficiency. The seminar includes watching about 50 minutes of "An Inconvenient Truth," which won an Academy Award. "At the end of the day, you save money" by conserving energy, Mayor Martin Chávez told reporters Friday. "We want all our employees to understand energy efficiency." The seminars have faced criticism from those who say it interferes with regular city work. "I think it's probably a waste...

    Ignoring the Academy Award won by the film, as well as rumors that former U.S. vice-president Al Gore is in line for a Nobel Peace Prize, a United Kingdom High Court judge said Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth” was “assembled by a cretin of minimal understanding and even less sense.” The movie has been distributed to more than 3500 schools for children aged 11 to 14 as part of their “Climate Change” curriculum. The case reached the court when truck driver and father of two, Stewart Dimmock brought action to ban the film from UK schools. The court’s ruling substantially agreed...

    LONDON - Some of the assertions in Al Gore's Oscar-winning environmental documentary are not supported by scientific evidence, a British judge said in ruling on a challenge from a school official who did not want the film shown to students. The ruling was published Wednesday and it detailed High Court Judge Michael Burton's decision this month to allow film showings to go ahead in English secondary schools. But the judge said that written guidance to teachers designed to ensure Gore's views are not presented uncritically must accompany the showings. Burton said he had no doubt the points raised in "An...
