Again, you are making assumptions. First of all, if you look at the OP, NOWHERE did I give my opinion. I put the paper up for comment and debate and that is what the members and you, are debating.
I don't worry about Gore or his clowns. Unlike Gore, I was an NSF Fellow in graduate school. I think that credential carries more weight than Al Gore's Nobel Peace Prize for his inconvenient lies. Al's educational background includes a B.A. in government, and failed attempts to get a law degree and a divinity degree in graduate school. He never did succeed in getting a graduate degree, although as is always the case with him, he says on his resume that he ATTENDED Law school.
Al Gore has exaggerated and lied all of his life.
You are purposely being mischievious, propagating slander in order to advance some personal vendetta. Or maybe it isn't personal? Maybe you are on someone's payroll (Tobacco? Oil? Faux News?). I don't know and don't care. If you don't like the guy, fine. Slander, however, is beneath you. Oh. Sorry. I'm making assumptions aren't I? Maybe it isn't beneath you. My bad as they say.
Denying the message from 10,000's of scientists...
...because one self-appointed spokesman gets a number wrong once in a while...
and his father was a 'ye olde time good ol' boy politico'...
...is just plain ignorant and self-abusive.

When someone communicates a message, it is not 'ignorant' nor is it 'self-abusive' to question the veracity of the message with respect to the source. After all, do you believe everything a car salesman tells you? Or do you verify what he says, more so if you do not trust his word?
So... he was the founding member of two organizations bankrolled by ExxonMobil, Western Mining, Monsanto and Phillip Morris...His focus was Geology ...until he started getting checks from big oil and mining..now he describes himself as an envirornmental scientist.
Oh did you notice Phillip Morris too..."Professor" Carter has claimed that the science behind ciggerete smoke being bad for you is BS as well.
Science for hire of the worst kind.
It would be good to see each side of the debate applying an equal standard of credibility independant of positions.
