All those anti-global-warming people like you have always attacked Al Gore for his work, claiming it's a conspiracy and one that is a business. Thing is, those who say global warming is fake has always left a bad impression. Al Gore spends $300 million to put the issue in advertisements to acknowledge the ignorant, and the energy and oil industries immediately spend cash to tell people otherwise. Who here is lining the pockets for themselves?
The only thing business about it is the opposing side, where all the money is made. Al Gore could've pulled the same BS by telling us to buy Macs for some BS reason because he's part of Apple, but he didn't. It's a propaganda when corporations called it fake and convinced people to think the same.
John Coleman, founder of The Weather Channel, directly and adamantly contends with Al Gore's assertions that so-called global warming is man-made. He has a degree in Meteorology, and has been studying and reporting weather and climate change for over 50 years. You can read some of Coleman's research on the matter here: (PDF file
). He uses real science and data that directly contends with, and debunks, many of Al Gore's claims.
With all due respect to Al Gore; he is not a meteorologist, climatologist, geologist, or anything close to such. He has a degree in Government. Now, I'm not saying that itself makes his argument invalid. But my point is; I'm much, much more inclined to place belief in the person with a formal education and training (and 50+ years of experience) in the field.... especially when the two gentleman's assertions directly conflict.
take on Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth":
Coleman is of the opinion that a debate on Global Warming should be pursued as his expertise as a meteorologist and scientist is in conflict with the assertions that Vice President Gore makes in his oscar-winning documentary "An Inconvenient Truth". Gore has turned down the challenge to debate Coleman claiming "The debate on Global Warming is over." Coleman claims that Gore's movie is based on junk-science and that "Global Warming Alarmism" is some ploy for purposes that are anything but science.
At one point, he actually wanted to sue Al Gore for fraud
for imposing the "fact" that "global warming" is a direct result of human action. (Source

Coleman speaks of "global warming" at the 2008 International Conference of Climate Change
and The Free Republic
It is the greatest scam in history. I am amazed, appalled and highly offended by it. Global Warming; it is a SCAM. Some dastardly scientists with environmental and political motives manipulated long term scientific data to create in allusion of rapid global warming. Other scientists of the same environmental whacko type jumped into the circle to support and broaden the “research” to further enhance the totally slanted, bogus global warming claims.
So if anyone wants to believe Al Gore on the subject, fine, it's your right. But it's my understanding, judging by the information at hand, that doing so seems to be woefully misguided.
