In 2007, a British High Court judge ruled that Al Gore's global warming film contained nine significant errors and should no longer be screened in schools unless accompanied by guidance notes to balance Gore's "one-sided" views. Al Gore's award-winning global warming film "An Inconvenient Truth," socked two years ago by a British court ruling that found several errors, is facing additional scrutiny with the release of a new documentary that seeks to rebut many of Gore's claims. .... Buoyed by the ruling, two Irish journalists -- Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney -- released a documentary in which they gather evidence outlining the damage of global warming hysteria. In "Not Evil Just Wrong," they challenge the claims made in Gore's film and conclude that the film is not worth screening in schools because it is shown there as "an article of science, not faith."

Last month, McAleer publicly confronted Gore in an contentious exchange at an environmental journalist conference, where Gore was the keynote speaker and took questions from the audience.

When asked by McAleer whether he would do anything to correct the errors found by the British court, Gore said he wouldn't go through each of the errors but added that the ruling was in favor of screening the film in schools.

"There's been such a long discussion of each one of those specific things," he said. "One of them for example was that polar bears…really aren't endangered. Well polar bears didn't get that word." The audience laughed.

Phelim countered that the number of polar bears has increased and is increasing....

The polar bear numbers are increasing. Another inconvenient truth for the ecomentalists and vegatabalists to deal with.

I've heard it said that polar bears are a bloody nuisance when their numbers get too high, nuisance in that when they start intruding into human settlements, the usual recourse has to be either to run like hell or to shoot the buggers.

There are a few encouraging signs that the tide might just be starting to turn on this AGW nonsense. Copenhagen is on next month. A lot of ecomentalists and pols will be busily boosting their air-miles by traveling at your and my expense (no doubt some of them in carbon-rich business class) to and from Denmark but apparently no treaty will be forthcoming.

Some of them are starting to have to deal with quite reasonable objections from normal people to all the North-to-South capital transfers that the Copenhagen treaty would have called for. It looks like the ecomentalist's pre-Christmas taxpayer funded pissup is going to be just a pissup after all.
