Does anybody even care that a Court of Law has found that Gore's movie was full of falsehoods, misconceptions, blatant lies and glaring inaccuracies?
That alone should have negated his nomination, let alone his actually being awarded the prize.
Regardless of the topic, people will always have differing views. That doesn't necessarily mean that one side is right and one side is wrong but rather that people are looking at something from different angles.
I am, quite frankly, disgusted to see some of the horrendous name calling which has gone on in this thread just because people don't agree with each other. Heavens, a democracy is supposed to mean that we are able to share our opinions freely. If we were all forced to have the same opinion about something, that would be a very sad world. Some people have to live like that...but we don't. Enjoy your freedom to argue and debate but don't trash each other while you are doing it.

Good to see you back Bear.
Sure there are flaws in "An Inconvenient Truth" but none of them void the broader message that Gore is giving us, namely: Global Warming is here.
Global Warming is already hurting real people. It is time we do something about it.
Anybody who has been near the Arctic recently will not argue the existence of global warming.
Global warming is not some shady conspiracy theory. It is a fact.
The only question should be what we can do about it.
Hey juan... I'm as entitled to my opinion as you are. Just because you disagree, does not make my opinion "nonsense".
I don't know if you've watched Gore's movie or not.
I've watched it four or five times. I admit there are mistakes but none of those mistakes negate the message.
It is extremely important that we(the whole world) take it seriously.
We can't have even a little bit of global warming. One degree would be a disaster.
They won't be culling the polar bear population any time soon. The sea ice they spend a good part of their life on has been reduced by drastic proportions.
IQALUIT - Climate change is not hurting polar bear populations in the Davis Strait area of Nunavut, according to Dr. Mitch Taylor, manager of wildlife research and a polar bear biologist with the GN's Department of Environment.
In fact, polar bear populations along the Davis Strait are healthy and their numbers increasing, an ongoing study is indicating.
Reports in national and international press have projected that two-thirds of the world's polar bear populations will be lost within 50 years due to the loss of sea ice. Canada has two thirds of the world's polar bears. Nunavut is home to 12 of Canada's 13 polar bear populations, totalling an estimated 14,780.
True. I have poor eyesight so I write in a bigger font and it's easier for me to read other posts if they are also in a bigger font.
Something I already knew, most people stuck in the stone age have difficulty seeing.
I'll keep it up for you old boy.
What the hell does that have to do with this?
Is this some weird defence of Hitler?
I'm not arguing the message, I'm arguing his motives, his delivery and his ethics
Don't shoot the messenger son! How many grifters are there in Washington?
It's of little use to bicker over personality flaws while such important matters are at hand. If in fact it's an altruistic mission you're on to spread the light of truth about then where are the corrections to the statements he's made?
It's quite difficult not to, especialy when the messenger is so full of shyte and so hypocritically corrupt.
Blind eye to the polution from the mine on his land...
His power consuption...
His profiting from the hysteria he helped propogate...
and so on...
Unfortunetly, I'm not that scientifically inclind, I'm waiting for someone I trust to spoon feed the answers to me, lol...
The law is the law, if it was that bad he would be shut down.
The point is that he still is doing something about a problem by making people aware. While some like yourself have said he is full of it, there are no shortage of trusted and well informed scientists and others who back up what he has said.
That there are a few who say he's full of it and all wrong and a big fat liar isn't difficult to find. Big Tobacco had scientists that said that there was no way that smoking caused cancer and that nicotine wasn't addictive.
But they for the most part changed their view when presented with immunity from prosecution for breach of confidentiality and being kicked off the payroll.
It's easy to say someone is wrong, but all together different to show conclusively where and how.
