A British judge found nine areas of significant inaccuracy in Al Gore's documentary "An Inconvenient Truth." But he also ruled it could be shown in British schools as part of a curriculum on climate change. "The Telegraph headlined, "Al Gore's Nine inconvenient untruths." Wired cleverly snarked, "An Inconvenient Ruling for An Inconvenient Truth." Of course as a veteran pol and player in the public arena, Gore knows this publicity will NOT do much to curtail the viewing or use of his doc in future climate change arguments. One must suspect that was part of his plan all along. At least get climate change and global warming into the public eye and start the arguments, raise awareness.

Some of the nine things the judge specifically found inaccurate: the Gulf Stream in the Atlantic is NOT likely to be shut down. That really matters for the U.K. which is kept warmer and more habitable because of the Gulf Stream. There's no evidence the drying of Lake Chad was due to global warming nor that climate change caused the melting of ice on Mount Kilimanjaro. And the judge says there's no proof that Hurricane Katrina could be attributed to global warming.
