Gore: No Equal Time For Warming Non Believers

Gore: Don’t give equal time to someone who believes the earth is flat

Last week, climate scientist John Christy wrote an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal taking issue with Vice President Al Gore’s assertions about global warming. Gore took the opportunity of a television appearance on Monday to address Christy’s claims.

NBC’s Meredith Viera asked Gore, “You know, you share the prize with scientists from the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. And one of those scientists, John Christy, wrote an op-ed last Thursday in the Wall Street Journal in which he criticized your dire predictions about the impact of global warming. He wrote, ‘I see neither the developing catastrophe nor the smoking gun proving that human activity is to blame for most of the warming we see.'”

Gore immediately responded, “Well, he’s an outlier. He no longer belongs to the IPCC. And he is way outside the scientific consensus.”

Gore then attacked the news media directly, saying that “part of the challenge the news media has had in covering this story is the old habit of taking the ‘on the one hand, on the other hand’ approach. There are still people who believe that the earth is flat. But when you’re reporting on a story like the one you’re covering today, where you have people all around the world, you don’t search out for someone who still believes the earth is flat and give them equal time.”

Gore concluded that there is “as strong a consensus as you’ll ever see in science that the climate crisis is real” but that “there is still time to solve it.”

Debunking the myth of ‘thousands’ of UNIPCC climate scientists

“The time is well overdue to destroy the myth that there are ‘thousands’ of scientists supporting claims of catastrophic global warming,” says Owen McShane, chair of the policy panel of the New Zealand Climate Science Coalition.

“One of our people, John McLean, of Melbourne, has just completed an extensive analysis of the recent report of Working Group 1 of the Fourth Assessment Report by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). He found in the critical Chapter 9, there were only five reviewers, none of whom had impeccable credibility, who explicitly endorsed the claim that humans have a significant influence on climate.

“John’s comprehensive analysis is available on the coalition’s website:

“It should be read by everyone who has been misguided into fears for the future of our planet, and those who will have to meet the costs of the unnecessary carbon charges that are about to inflate the costs of so many of the necessities of modern life.

“Especially, it should be read by politicians, news media editors and zealots like Jim Footner of Greenpeace,” said Mr McShane.
