The ruling of the High Court cites nine of Gore's supposed truths as such egregious "inaccuracies", that they must be "specifically drawn to the attention of school children" in Britain, before being shown the film. Otherwise, educators showing it "may be in breach of section 406 of the Education Act 1996 and guilty of political indoctrination." (The list originally included eleven entries, but was later condensed.)
My personal favorite, among the revealed inaccuracies is:
- The film suggests that evidence from ice cores proves that rising CO2 causes temperature increases over 650,000 years. The Court found that the film was misleading: over that period the rises in CO2 lagged behind the temperature rises by 800-2000 years.
Of course, it may be easier for the British to understand the misleading nature of Gore's film, since they have had easier access to the BBC's "The Great Global Warming Swindle", which thoroughly refutes many of the points on which the "Man Made Global-Warming" house-of-cards is built. For some reason, the type of visual media outlets in the USA which show similar programming, have (at least to my knowledge) declined to add this to balance the seemingly never-ending stream of MMGW alarmism they run between the latest nature-based reality TV freak-show of the week and those of the UFO Secrets/Bermuda Triangle/Bigfoot variety.
To me it seems that the acclaim Al Gore has received over "An Inconvenient Truth", from Hollywood to Stockholm, is clearly another case of Just Crazy Politics!
