Al Gore Debates Global Warming, Sort Of

October 9, 2007

Al Gore refuses to debate global warming in a science forum setting. Why? Maybe the UK Courts have an answer. An Inconvenient Truth, hmmm, not true, fiction. But, the movie won an academy award. Well yes, but academy awards aren’t true either. Movies are fiction for the most part, even so-called documentaries are now fiction, Hollywood rules. Michael Moore won an academy award as well for his fiction.

Junk Science blog author Steve Milloy has upped the ante once again. While Al Gore refuses to debate his man-made global warming freak-out theory, real scientists are all over the debate, which liberals say is over, on the basis that all scientists agree (through a cool-sounding “consensus”) with the man-made global warming theories of Al (“my hair she be on fire”) Gore. Well that’s just confusing. Science is not about consensus, it’s about provable facts. Consensus means nothing, else we would be living on a flat Earth — Once upon a time, the scientific consensus said the Earth was flat, if you went far enough in one direction, you would fall off into nothingness.

Steve Milloy brings the debate right to Al Gore, sort of.

“We’ll see what the public thinks after both sides make their case on a specific and narrow point,” said Milloy. “Global warming alarmists didn’t fare so well last time that happened,” he added.

Last March, the prestigious New York debating society Intelligence Squared sponsored a debate on global warming, which may be viewed at here. A pre-debate poll indicated that, by 2-to-1 (57 percent to 29 percent, with 14 percent undecided), the audience believed that manmade global warming was a crisis. But in the post-debate poll, the audience reversed its pre-debate views – the ranks of the skeptics swelled to 46 percent, the believers plummeted to 42 percent and the undecided declined slightly to 12 percent.

“That’s the power of debate,” said Milloy. “Though Al Gore aggressively promotes global warming alarmism, he unfortunately seems to lack confidence in his ability to debating climate change against others. But Al Gore’s curious reluctance will hardly stop the public from being able to see how his points stack up against that of climate experts,” Milloy concluded.

Stay tuned, Steve says more chapters to follow.
