David Suzuki exposes the Vast Anti-Science Conspiracy seeking to undermine environmentaloid cineaste Al Gore:
A story by the Associated Press on experts who critiqued the science behind the movie found that they too gave it a thumbs up for accuracy. Personally, I thought it was brilliant.
But shortly after the Associated Press article came out, other articles started popping up that said Mr. Gore’s science was shoddy. People claiming to be experts wrote opinion pieces in newspapers decrying the film, Mr. Gore, and the “theory” of global warming in general.
Contrarians, it seemed, were coming out of the woodwork. What happened?
Beats me, Dave. Freedom of speech? Differences of opinion? Collapse of consensus?
What happened was a well-funded campaign to discredit the film and carpet bomb North Americans with confusing and contradictory information about the science of global warming. It appears to be having an effect too.
Horrible! Just as well Gore’s warm troopers are running a counter campaign of their own:
A former Fox Valley woman now living in Washington state is providing free tickets to a Thursday night showing of the global-warming documentary “An Inconvenient Truth.”
