Is Al Gore the new Michael Moore?

The Financial Post, to its credit, ran 2 articles about the new Al Gore movie on global warming. His ability to mislead is just like Michael Moore.
Mr. Gore suggests that the Greenland melt area increased considerably between 1992 and 2005. But 1992 was exceptionally cold in Greenland and the melt area of ice sheet was exceptionally low due to the cooling caused by volcanic dust emitted from Mt. Pinatubo. If, instead of 1992, Gore had chosen for comparison the year 1991, one in which the melt area was 1% higher than in 2005, he would have to conclude that the ice sheet melt area is shrinking and that perhaps a new Ice Age is just around the corner.

Just goes to show that you can "prove" anything just by choosing your data.

Another interesting question I have is - How come when Al Gore (or Micheal Moore, or Cincy Sheehan or any other american leftist) speaks Canadians listen in awe and believe everything they say but when an american right thinking person speaks, the anti american knives come out. Just wonderin......?

Gore is right. The controversy about global warming exists in the media, not amongst scientists. Scientific consensus is not necessarily the absolute truth - but it is the way to bet.
