Gore's inconvenient judgement

We reported here about the Al Gore film An Inconvenient Truth and the high court ruling in the UK requiring British teachers to warn students before showing it in schools. The students must be told that the film is not totally accurate and contains political bias.

The article at the link below says that the high court judge said:

Mr Gore’s film was “broadly accurate” in its presentation of the causes and likely effects of climate change but said that some of the claims were wrong and had arisen in “the context of alarmism and exaggeration”.

“It is plainly, as witnessed by the fact that it received an Oscar this year for best documentary film, a powerful, dramatically presented and highly professionally produced film,” he said in his ruling. “It is built around the charismatic presence of the ex-Vice-Presi-dent, Al Gore (pictured), whose crusade it now is to persuade the world of the dangers of climate change caused by global warming.

“It is now common ground that it is not simply a science film – although it is clear that it is based substantially on scientific research and opinion – but that it is a political film.”

There are eleven Inaccuracies in Gore’s movie as outlined here.

Why does the Gore film seem to be accepted in this country? Largely because, as the judge in the UK said, it is a political film and Al Gore is the darling of the far left.

More proof that ‘boomers’ are aging

Fifty years ago Theodore “the Beaver” and Wally appeared on the Leave it to Beaver television series. The date was October 4, 1957.
