Who are we to believe? Gore or Heartland Institute?

Joseph Bast, president of the Heartland Institute, wrote an opinion piece that appeared in today’s Philadelphia Daily News, asking readers whom they would believe, Al Gore or scientists.

It is interesting to observe that the cadre of scientists Bast refers to as proof that Gore is wrong seems to be getting smaller and their collective expertise in the area of climate change continues to diminish as more and more jump off the climate denial bandwagon. For instance, Bast claims Tim Ball, former professor at the University of Winnipeg, to be an “expert” on climate change, when in fact Dr. Ball has not published any research in a peer-reviewed science journal in the last 20 years.

All this becomes even more questionable when you question the source of this article, Joseph Bast himself.

It's All About Al Gore

Al Gore and climate change are about to be all over the media, as An Inconvenient Truth sets to launch in key locales on May 24.

Grist Magazine featured a great interview with the man himself today – DeSmogBlog readers might be interested in hearing what he had to say.

For me, the most interesting comment was with regards to the challenges of walking the “scare the people or give them hope” line. This is an issue that everyone concerned with climate change and how to wake up the general public needs to address.

Only 24 more sleeps till... the movie we've all been waiting for

Mark your calendars. June 9th is the opening date for the Vancouver launch of the movie we've all been anticipating: Paramount Classic's An Inconvenient Truth. The new documentary, which received rave reviews at the Sundance Festival,  focuses on Vice President Al Gore's international crusade to raise awareness about global warming.



These days, celebrities are all about lending their names to pet causes. But what makes this more exciting than Her Royal Buxomness Pamela Anderson's affiliation with PETA or Sir Paul McCartney's seal hunt protests is that this cause, in my opinion, is the cause to lend your name to. Climate change, however unsexy it may be, is (in the DeSmogBlog's collective opinion) the most pressing issue of our time.

An Inconvenient Truth

Watch for the movie, An Inconvenient Truth, and consider that its star, environmentalist and former Vice-President Al Gore, actually won the election against George W. Bush.

Imagine where climate change policy might be today if the U.S. Supreme Court had accepted the verdict of the people of the United States.
