1 de julio de 2007

<body><div id="article"><p>July 1, 2007 (LPAC)--That is the headline on a damaging article in the June 30 <em>Chicago Sun Times</em> , by James M. Taylor, who takes Al Gore to task for lying throughout his "Inconvenient" video. After calling on Gore to follow his own advice that "reasons" and "science" be brought to bear on the climate debate, Taylor documents a string of Gore lies and their scientific refutation:</p><p> <b>*</b> "Gore claims that Himalayan glaciers are shrinking" due to global warming. False, says the Sept. 2006 issue of the <em>American Metereological Society's Journal of Climate</em> .</p><p> <b>*</b> "Gore claims the snowcap atop Africa's Mt. Kilimanjaro is shrinking." Not true, says the Nov. 23, 2003 issue of <em>Nature magazine.</em> </p><p> <b>*</b> "Gore claims global warming is causing tornadoes." False, says the IPCC in Feb. 2007.</p><p> <b>*</b> "Gore claims global warming is causing more frequent and severe hurricanes." No, say hurricane experts Chris Landsea and William Gray, and the April 18 Geophysical Research Letters.</p><p> <b>*</b> African deserts are expanding. No they are not, says the Sept. 16, 2002 issue of <em>New Scientist</em> .</p><p> <b>*</b> Greenland is in rapid meltdown. Nope, says the <em>Journal of Glaciology</em> .</p><p> <b>*</b> "Gore claims the Antarctic ice sheet is melting because of global warming." No, says the Jan. 14, 2002 issue of <em>Nature magazine</em> , Antarctica as a whole has been dramatically cooling for decades.</p><p>Nice try, Al.</p></div></body>
