I’ve read a number of Phelim McAleer’s articles, co-written with Ann McElhinney, concerning the global warming/climate change hoax. He’s no slouch and really knows his environmental science. And when in doubt, he interviews or cites scientific experts. REAL ONES… not Al Gore’s waning group of adoring eco-crazy sycophants.
Here in this video, Phelim is attending the Society of Environmental Journalists Annual Conference in Wisconsin, where for the first time in four years, global warming hoax Grand Poo-Bah Al Gore has agreed to take questions from journalists. Imagine that… dodging any kind of hard question for four years. Astounding.
Phelim is summarily cut off, however, when he asks Gore about the nine errors about global warming that a British high court found in 2007 in his liberal-acclaimed, lacking-in-real-science film An Inconvenient Truth. Gore still claims that polar bear numbers are decreasing, despite scientific data that their numbers are five-fold what they were five decades ago.
Environmental journalist/filmmaker Phelim McAleer Asks Al Gore Tough Question, Mic Is Cut | October 2009
From The Powers That Be: Gore Heads to Virginia to Throw Weight Behind Deeds for Guv, Propel Him Through Wall:
The weather in McLean, Virginia tomorrow will see a high of about 47 degrees — 23 degrees below average for this time of year. I shudder to think how cold it would be if it weren’t for global warming driving up the temperature! I’m going to leave my gas-powered leaf blower running an extra hour this afternoon so Al doesn’t freeze to death.
For those of you at the fundraising dinner, don’t ask Al any questions that don’t play into his scam, or he’ll have your mic cut off and you’ll be removed from the house…
From Wall Street Journal, Al Gore’s First (and Probably Last) Q&A:
Before President Obama won his Nobel Peace Prize, the real signal that the Norwegian Nobel committee had become politicized was its 2007 prize to Al Gore, largely for his global warming film “An Inconvenient Truth.”
For a public figure, Mr. Gore has been strangely reluctant to answer questions or debate the more controversial parts of his work. But over the weekend, he deigned to take a few questions during a meeting of the Society of Environmental Journalists in Madison, Wisconsin.
Irish documentary filmmaker Phelim McAleer was in the line. A former Financial Times journalist, his new film, “Not Evil, Just Wrong,” is a direct refutation of Mr. Gore’s thesis and warns that rushing to judgment in combating climate change would threaten the world’s poor. When his turn came, Mr. McAleer asked Mr. Gore about a court case in Britain in which a parent had objected to “An Inconvenient Truth” being shown to British schoolchildren because it was largely propaganda, not science.
Mr. Gore swatted away the question by claiming the judge had found in favor of his film. He also briefly addressed one of the objections to his film by scoffing at claims that polar bears weren’t an endangered species. Mr. McAleer tried to follow up by pointing out that polar bear populations were increasing, but his microphone was quickly cut off. Organizers insisted that several other people were waiting with questions and they had to move on.
In fact, Mr. Gore didn’t answer Mr. McAleer’s question and was wrong on the facts. The British court found that An Inconvenient Truth “is a political film” riddled with scientific errors. The judge also held that requiring the film to be shown in schools would be a violation of law, unless accompanied by “guidance” pointing out its errors. The judge concluded that the claimant who objected to the film “substantially won this case by virtue of my finding that, but for the new guidance note, the film would have been distributed in breach of sections 406 and 407 of the 1996 Education Act.”
As for polar bears, Mr. McAleer was correct: Surveys show their numbers are increasing.
From an August 2009 post, Phelim McAleer & Ann McElhinney, Big Hollywood: EXCLUSIVE: Lies Revealed — Greenpeace Leader Admits Arctic Ice Exaggeration
…The BBC reporter accused Leipold and Greenpeace of releasing “misleading information” and using “exaggeration and alarmism.”
Leipold’s admission that Greenpeace issued misleading information is a major embarrassment to the organization, which often has been accused of alarmism but has always insisted that it applies full scientific rigor in its global-warming pronouncements.
Although he admitted Greenpeace had released inaccurate but alarming information, Leipold defended the organization’s practice of “emotionalizing issues” in order to bring the public around to its way of thinking and alter public opinion…
I’ve provided the two lists below before, but they warrant being provided again… arm yourself with knowledge and let your congressmen and congresswomen know we do NOT want this outrageously expensive global warming/climate change “tax Americans to the grave” bill passed. GLOBAL WARMING DOES NOT EXIST.
