Al Gore in An Inconvenient Truth:
Isn’t there a disagreement among scientists about whether the problem is real or not? Actually, not really. There was a massive study of every scientific article in a peer reviewed article written on global warming in the last ten years. They took a big sample of 10 percent, 928 articles. And you know the number of those that disagreed with the scientific consensus that were causing global warming and that is a serious problem out of the 928…Zero.
Well, Gore lied about that. But, that’s nothing new.
The Heartland Institute will publish in its July 1, 2008 issue of Environment News a list of peer-reviewed scientific studies that question the validity of anthropogenic global warming. Here’s the the first part of three lists of the peer-reviewed studies.
It’s GORE LIED’s contention that “peer reviewed” usually means liberals rubber-stamping the biased studies of other liberals – because, like education and journalism, the field of science is a liberal magnet.
So, what’s going on here? Well, of the 61 studies in this first of three parts, only one was published prior to 1990, only ten were published between 1991-2000, and fifty of the studies were published after 2001. I guess the “peers” can only put their finger in the dike for so long until they get inundated with a flood of studies contradicting Gore’s claims.
It’s often been said that climate science is in its infancy, but it appears that the godfather of anthropogenic global warming, Al Gore, has put climate science on a trajectory toward adolescence, and the science is behaving much like any rebellious adolescent would.
