More Inconvenient Truth

After my post the other day on Al Gore and the increasing scientific community press against his end-of-the-world-is-coming movie, the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works released a statement condemning the Associated Press on an article in which they claim that there is vast scientific agreement on the basis for the theory of man-caused "global warming."

In the interest of full disclosure, the AP should release the names of the “more than 100 top climate researchers” they attempted to contact to review “An Inconvenient Truth.” AP should also name all 19 scientists who gave Gore “five stars for accuracy.” AP claims 19 scientists viewed Gore’s movie, but it only quotes five of them in its article. AP should also release the names of the so-called scientific “skeptics” they claim to have contacted.

This is all fantastically true, but don't expect a retraction from the AP. They have long passed their role as unbiased reporters of the news.

I'm afraid that Inhofe's press release gets the science wrong.
