Conclusion

The case for large scale interference in the economies of the world has not been made since nearly every significant statement that Mr. Gore makes with regard to climate science and climate policy is either incomplete, deceptive, inflated, speculative, or sometimes plain wrong. The numerous distortions that Mr. Gore makes show that he is not a good guide to climate science and climate policy.

Gore’s video should be renamed “The rehabilitation of Al Gore”. A good many politicians write books in their run up to leadership races in order to stake out their issues. Al Gore has gone one better and produced a video as well as a book. They are both very well produced, very powerful and will overly influence those who are not prepared. This is a political propaganda video camouflaged as a documentary. A look at the official “An Inconvenient Truth website”, (dramatically named Climate Crisis.Net), at http://www.climatecrisis.net/ will reaffirm that this is more of a propaganda and political exercise than a scientific one. He grossly overstates the case and ignores much contradictory data. It is also far too dogmatic and one sided for my taste.

My critique has only brushed the surface. For a more definitive and authoritative criticism see A Skeptic's Guide to An Inconvenient Truth by Marlo Lewis
