Al Gore: The un-credible man

Al Gore is not an environmental expert of any sort, despite what he wants
you to believe. So how does Al Gore get so much credibility for his
documentary, "An Inconvenient Truth?" The answer lies in fear. Gore scares
the world's people into believing the Earth is doomed because of human
activity and wants us to believe we must take drastic action now in order to
save our planet. Be sure to buy carbon credits from Gore's company,
Generation Investment Management.
Wake up everybody. Global warming is not the end of the world; it is a
money-making deal Al Gore is cashing in on. He is not an expert; he is a
scam artist. Gore's documentary is losing credibility in the scientific
community, too.
Environmental scientists cannot even reproduce the infamous hockey stick
graph that makes it look like Earth's temperatures are rising to
catastrophic levels. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is even
starting to doubt the credibility of the chart. In the documentary, carbon
dioxide is cited as "the most important of the so-called greenhouse gases."
Water vapor has a larger impact on Earth's temperatures than carbon dioxide
ever will. Al Gore has influence - I cannot argue with that. But is he
credible? Absolutely not.
I'll give you one man that has done his research and has his facts straight:
global warming expert and chief policy adviser for the Science and Public
Policy Institute Lord Monckton, former adviser to Margaret Thatcher. If you
wish to know the facts about global warming, join CFACT at the Coffman Union
Theater on Tuesday, Oct. 13, at 6 p.m. and hear Monckton present the truth.
