Al Gore's film which persuaded everyone (including me at the time) that global warming is being caused by human CO2 emissions is flawed and makes exaggerated, alarmist false claims.
The information below is taken directly from a document by Lord Monckton. He has repeatedly challenged Al Gore to a debate, but Gore has always refused.
I have only listed some of the most glaring and alarmist claims. For a full list and explanations as to why they are wrong, please click on the link at the bottom of this post.
Error 1: Gore says that a sea-level rise of up to 6 m (20 ft) will be caused by melting of either West Antarctica or Greenland. This is wrong.
Error 2: Gore says low-lying inhabited Pacific coral atolls are already being inundated because of anthropogenic global warming. This is wrong.
Error 3: Gore says global warming may shut down the thermohaline circulation in the oceans, which he calls the "ocean conveyor", plunging Europe into an ice age. It will not.
Error 4: Gore says that in each of the last four interglacial warm periods it was changes in carbon dioxide concentration that caused changes in temperature. It was the other way about.
Error 5: Gore says "global warming" has been melting the snows of Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa. It is not.
Error 6: Gore says "global warming" dried up Lake Chad in Africa. It did not.
Error 8: Gore says a scientific study shows that polar bears are being killed swimming long distances to find ice that has melted away because of "global warming". They are not.
Error 9: Gore says coral reefs are "bleaching" because of "global warming". They are not.
Error 18: Gore says the Arctic has been warming faster than the rest of the planet. It is not.
Error 19: Gore says "global warming" is making the Greenland ice sheet unstable. It is not.
Error 20: Gore says 40% of the world's population get their water supply from Himalayan glacial melt waters that are failing because of "global warming". They don't and they are not.
Error 23: Gore says terrible tragedies are occurring in the southern Sahara because of drought which he blames on "global warming". There is no drought caused by "global warming".
Error 27: Gore says that, because of "global warming", mosquitoes are climbing to higher altitudes. They are not.
Error 30: Gore describes carbon dioxide as "global warming pollution". It is not. It is food for plants and trees. Tests have shown that even at concentrations 30 times those of the present day even the most delicate plants flourish. Well-managed forests, such as those of the United States, are growing at record rates because the extra carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is feeding the trees. Carbon dioxide, in geological timescale, is at a very low concentration at present. Half a billion years ago it was at 7000 parts per million by volume, about 18 times today's concentration.
And AG also stands to make billions of dollars from his great global warming swindle. Do you still trust what he says?

The debate is not over.
You can walk outside in any Major Metropolitan area and see the real world effects of pollution.
Pollution is a real problem.
Unfortunately people like Al Gore and leveraging a Pollution Problem with Global Warming Scare tactics in order to profit.
Gore is a con man who stands to become a Billionaire overnight selling "Carbon Offsets" through the companies he is setting up with partners worldwide.
But you really have to ask yourself about the motives of an individual who thinks that it's okay to "pollute" as long as you purchase a "carbon offset".
If Gore cared about the Environment he would be working to STOP pollution not sell Tickets allowing companies to pollute for a fee.

Unfortunately it's very easy to pull the wool over the eyes of the uneducated sheep.
People who can not grasp simple concepts should not be expected to understand Science.
People are easily fooled and mislead.
it is indeed happening, and I also believe that it is not a hoax, as for humans contributing to it, yes, but other factors come into play also
only our country the US is not yet a signatory to the KYOTO Protocol, and all other developed nations like UK, AUS, JAPAN, and all of Europe signed already,
In my opinion, these countries signed either because they were scared and pressured into it, or because their leaders are also in league with the people who run the show (definitely the case in UK). I would have signed up for Kyoto myself at the time, through ignorance and wanting to help save our planet. I even sold my car and made other lifestyle changes in an effort to do my bit.
Now I see things differently, and I am certainly not alone. Just look at who stands to gain from this hoax, and how much.
Are you prepared to see millions of Africans face financial ruin or die because they would not be allowed to burn fossil fuels?
Are you willing to accept literally hundreds of new taxes on everything and anything energy related?
Are you willing to allow inspectors to enter you home without a warrant to check that you conform to standards?
Are you willing to be fined or imprisoned if you break the "rules"?
Can you see the utter lunacy of carbon credit trading. How can AG say that he cares about the planet, and then sell the right to pollute it as much as you want as long as you have enough money to pay his company for the privilege?
Are we really this blind?
None of which means climate change is not happening or we are not having an effect.
Good grief - they are trying to use whatever comes to hand to reduce your freedoms and this is just yet another one.
Personally - mandatory ID cards because we are "scared of immigrants" frightens me much more.
We know that climate change is occuring and has always done so. The post is really about the alarmist claims of AG which frightened everyone into compliance, and which now are being shown to be false (he is even admitting to some errors himself now). In my opinion, Monckton does a good job of debunking the exaggerations.
Yes, the power elite are using this as another stepping stone to accomplish their objectives of world control, and I think this is a major chunk, which is why we need to inform as many people as possible.
I agree that the final play is likely to be human RDIF chipping. If they achieve that, then the game's pretty much over.

This is a very serious issue which i wanted to raised among all the people who are member of Hub Pages. We can suggest some new, useful and good ideas about how to save the world from global warming.What are you waiting...

Do those who believe in man-made global warming think that Al Gore is a good representative for...the "Green" movement?
