    A (British) High Court judge who ruled on whether climate change film, An Inconvenient Truth, could be shown in schools said it contains "nine scientific errors".

    Mr Justice Burton said the (UK) government could still send Al Gore's film to schools - if accompanied by guidance giving the other side of the argument.

    A Kent school governor wanted the film banned from secondary schools.

    The judge said nine statements in the film were not supported by current mainstream scientific consensus.

    That they were willing to admit there were any is not a bad start Bobby.

    That whole issue is about control, and the power that goes with it.

    The fact that Algore is building a money machine for himself is a nice perk. But power and control are the goals. IMO

    It's a good thing for Al that truth is not a requirement to "win" a Nobel prize.

    Since it's not, Michael Moore should have been seriously considered as well.

    What really gets my goat is the REAL (not urban legend) comparing his massively energy consuming home compared to Pres Bush's eco-friendly home, which is not even denied..

    SOURCE HERE

    I just grabbed one source after googling. This appears to be a well documented fact.
