Why I Won't watch an Al Gore Movie

About: al gore quotes - stupid quotes and lies by al gore (algore)

I am a selective spender. I won't watch a movie by Al Gore because he still harbors the misguided hope that he can still be president & ride in on the horse named Global Warming. With that hope he is extremely biassed !
His point of view is he wants to stir people up regardless of whether there is any truth in his position:
source: ... Nobody is interested in solutions if they don't think there's a problem. Given that starting point, I believe it is appropriate to have an over-representation of factual presentations on how dangerous (global warming) is, as a predicate for opening up the audience to listen to what the solutions are, and how hopeful it is that we are going to solve this crisis. (Algore)
... I won't watch his movie or spend money on anything he is associated with.

I would rather review the less-hyped NOAA material on their website than algore.  Besides, NOAA is a government enterprise which I am already spending my taxes for.

FYI ... there is a lot of comments on Dvorak's item Is Gore Full of Crap Regarding Global Warming.  My favorite one is from an annonymous contributor: "Al Gore shouldn

Gore was on CNN Larry King yesterday.  He didn't say much that we have not already heard.

There is a point in his message that needs to be heard.  The GWC (Global Warming Challenge) is not just about ruining the American economy.  It is an oppurtunity.  A call for innovation. 

Look, and this is me not Gore,  a simplified natural process could be summarized as:

CO2 ---> Plants --> Oxegen --> Animals --> CO2  ... and that has been in balance, yet occilating, for millions of years.   The industrial revolution has intoroduced another process:    Oil --> Industry --> Energy + CO2 + waste.  Obviously as that industry grows without limit there will be an imbalance.   What we need to do is to form a new balancing act.   Something like  CO2 + waste ---> Contra-Industry --->  Energy + Oxegen.   That industry could became a new boost to the economy.  It could employ millions of workers, engineers, etc.    Gore's message that this is an oppurtunity should be listenend to.  

And of course there is another giant reason, apart from GWC that should activate us to create the Contra Industry.  Oil will be running out in this century.  The scarcer it becomes, the more costly it becomes, instead of fighting over it ... innovate to replace it.  So even if GWC is a hoax, Gore's message is on point.

source:  Scientists OK Gore's movie for accuracy By SETH BORENSTEIN, AP Science Writer
The nation's top climate scientists are giving "An Inconvenient Truth," Al Gore's documentary on global wrming, five stars for accuracy.  ...
...
"Excellent," said William Schlesinger, dean of the Nicholas School of Environment and Earth Sciences at Duke University. "He got all the important material and got it right."
...

Robert Corell, chairman of the worldwide Arctic Climate Impact Assessment group of scientists, read the book and saw Gore give the slideshow presentation that is woven throughout the documentary.

"I sat there and I'm amazed at how thorough and accurate," Corell said. "After the presentation I said, `Al, I'm absolutely blown away. There's a lot of details you could get wrong.' ... I could find no error."

...

The tiny errors scientists found weren't a big deal, "far, far fewer and less significant than the shortcoming in speeches by the typical politician explaining an issue," said Michael MacCracken, who used to be in charge of the nation's global warming effects program and is now chief scientist at the Climate Institute in Washington.

...
As far as the movie's entertainment value, Scripps Institution geosciences professor Jeff Severinghaus summed it up: "My wife fell asleep. Of course, I was on the edge of my chair."
I'll bet that Denise falls asleep too ... but i may not be able to wait ... i might need to go see it in the theater.

Why would i say anything so idiotic as that.  Obviously global warming is political. Finding the will to re-tool our economy in order to mitigate global warming is political action at its best.

This article is in obvious contrast to Scientists respond to Gore's warnings of climate catastrophe by Tom Harris.  It is truly damm hard to find the real truth.  My point in all of this is to de-escalate all this leftrightism so that we have a chance.  Oh, well ... nobody listens to me

It's political & yet you want to remove liberal-versus-conservative considerations, HA!
Yep, leftrightism is just producing static.  I am proposing that if we stop responding in a knee jerk fashion according to our political persuasion, we will get closer to the truth.  Leftrightism is not the whole of politics ... though in America these days it certainly has been dominating the stage.  If you equate politics to leftrightism, then i certainly will not be expecting any political wisdome from your side of the computer.
