Gorebot Visits Denver, Flogs "An Inconvenient Truth"
Al Gore drones on about "global warming" while criss-crossing the country in an effort to stop pollution (video):
Gore spoke for a few minutes to the crowd about global warming and possible solutions which he says has become his passion.If Gore was serious about reducing CO2 emissions, he would cut his promotional travel, not issue a book which consumes trees, chemicals, and dyes, and not encourage people to drive to their local theater to see his movie. Just distribute the film for free over the internet. No paper for books, no exhaust from cars.
"We are now putting 70 million tons of global warming pollution into the Earth's atmosphere everyday. That'll happen today and there'll be a little more than that tomorrow. Twenty-five million tons a day are going into the ocean making them more acidic," he said. "It truly is a planetary emergency. And we have to rise to the challenge and solve it. The good news is we can."

CSU Hurricane Forecaster Dr. William Gray says he doesn't dispute there has been global warming the last 20 to 30 years, he just doesn't agree with Gore about what brought it on.
"Al Gore believes it's totally due to humans putting greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. There's no doubt greenhouse gases they have gone up, but there are many ways in which the globe could warm without greenhouse gases," said Gray.
Dr. Gray says a variety of things have caused global warming in the present and will in the future: slight changes in ocean circulation, changes in cloud cover, differences in rainfall and slight changes in luminosity of the sun.
Gray is currently writing a critical review of Gore's book and movie.
