Gore v. Science Fact

"After watching 'An Inconvenient Truth,' I was relatively convinced, ...(Al Gore) did a good job in presenting his points very methodically one after the other. They all build up to essentially prove his point.

"After watching '
The Great Global Warming Swindle,' my thinking completely changed. I kind of did a complete flip-flop."

Read the whole story here.

That's what science facts will do to a body. Nick Shipley, a freshman at Embry-Riddle Aeryonautical University was no exception. He had just spent a week watching two films shown by James Wanliss, Embry-Riddle space physicist. The two films, "An Inconvenient Truth' (which one must pay to see) and 'The Great Global Warming Swindle' (which can be seen by anyone free on the Internet) were shown as part of an honors course called "The Politics and Science of Fear". Wanliss believes the public is being given short shrift on the whole global warming (or cooling) debate and has not been afforded the opportunity to judge for themselves the arguments with polar(bear)-opposite conclusions.

After viewing both versions of the truth, the Embry-Riddle students of Wanliss tilted to the skeptic camp, it is a science school, after all.

Gore: 0, Fact: 1.

The sad thing is that Gore's film is becoming REQUIRED viewing in many schools and the Great Global Warming Swindle is regarded as propaganda and NOT shown.

The Great Global Warming Swindle is available in its entirety on the internet and soon will be available on DVD for $19.99 (+s/h.) Look for it in a video store near you, unless the store owner is a Gore drone.

There will be plenty of people who will be curious enough to see what the "other side" is saying about the weather and come to their own conclusion and senses. In the meantime, we just keep hammering.

BTW, I have seen An Inconvenient Truth - twice. And I intend to see it again real soon. There are portions that are not being talked about that should be.
