In a challenge unlikely to be met,
"A British skeptic of global warming "alarmism" on Tuesday challenged climate change activist and former Vice President Al Gore to a debate on the issue."Global warming is not a crisis," Viscount Christopher Monckton of Brenchley declared in an ad published in the Washington Post Tuesday. The ad, also scheduled to run in the New York Times and Wall Street Journal, directs readers to a website in which Monckton challenges Gore to a debate in Oxford, England at a date of the American's choosing."
"Al Gore has become the world's most recognized advocate of the theory that human greenhouse gas emissions are altering the world's climate and could cause catastrophic damage if not arrested and reduced," Heartland Institute President Joseph Bast said in a statement. "But Al Gore refuses to debate those who say global warming is not a crisis."
"In a recent statement, Monckton declared, "A careful study of the substantial corpus of peer-reviewed science reveals that Mr. Gore's film, An Inconvenient Truth, is a foofaraw [a fuss over a matter of little importance] of pseudo-science, exaggerations, and errors, now being peddled to innocent schoolchildren worldwide."
I haven't heard that word in a while, "FOOFARAW", but it fits Al Gore's Global Warming Crusade perfectly. Wouldn't you love to see such a debate, televised and broadcast around the world? Gore won't take the bait. At this point he would have nothing to gain and everything to lose. He has public opinion on his side and he's not going to let science, reason and logic get in his way.
Any ideas for how we can get Gore, or any human-induced global warming advocates to have an open and honest debate? I don't know how it is possible.
