SMH swallows appalling NYT hatchet job on Gore

15 03 2007

There must be some vested interests feeling a little threatened.

The Sydney Morning Herald lazily reprints this attack on Al Gore from the New York Times.

The article discusses a selection of scientists’ quibbles with Al Gore’s representation of climate change science.

 Unfortunately the article fails the disclose:

  1. the fact that many of those quoted are infamous climate change contrarians.
  2. the literature showing their arguments as bunkem
  3. the fact that the flow of people changing their mind on this issue is pretty much all in one direction.
  4. James Hansens’s belief that sea level rise might be far worse than IPCC reports predict.

How terrribly disappointing. Grist helps us dissect the article.
