It systematically destroys the anthropogenic global warming hypothesis, through explanations by climate scientists, many of whom are on the IPCC panel. It shows that CO2 levels to increase.

Al Gore, in his movie where he shows the temperature graph and then superimposes the CO2 graph, showing they are highly correlated, left out the inconvenient truth that there is an 800 year lag between when the warming happens and when the CO2 levels increase.

Barry's Response - Thanks Chris. Martin Durkin's lesser-known BBC documentary "The Great Global Warming Swindle" (TGGWS) made this argument, which also pokes fun at the IPCC (International Panel on Climate Change).

According to TGGWS, global warming has become an industry on its own, where scientists use scare tactics to get research grants.

There's a lot of footage here of GreenPeace member Patrick Moore, who says the "pro-global warming pundits abandon science and logic in favor of emotion and sensationalism." In general, the film's postulates about why global warming is happening are pretty interesting.

Before making an opinion, I suggest people see both An Inconvenient Truth and TGGWS and come up with a multi-faceted concept of the issue.

You see, there's a twist to this debate on anthropogenic global warming.

There's more to it than black and white. You say this film meticulously dismantles anthropogenic global warming's foundation. It's quite a feat, especially when it's backed up by climate scientists, some of whom sit on the IPCC panel. Here's where it gets really weird.

You mention Al Gore's presentation, where he cleverly juxtaposed temperature and CO2 concentration graphs. However, Mr. Gore conveniently omits the rather inconvenient truth - an 800-year lag. There's an 800-year gap between warming events and CO2 levels rising. That's a mystery.

You see, the plot thickens. We find ourselves navigating a labyrinth of data, theories, and counterarguments, where nothing is straightforward. That's a conundrum.

Both Sides
by: Anonymous

This article is very interesting. It is always nice to get both sides of the story. Sometimes we do not get both sides.

From Barry - By presenting both sides of the argument, this article gives the reader a balanced view of the issue. And by presenting both perspectives, the article encourages readers to form their own opinions.
