Documentary To Challenge "An Inconvenient Truth"

I smell Oscar:

Hayward, who is a fellow at the Pacific Research Institute and the American Enterprise Institute, said he hopes to counter some of the "alarmist" claims that supporters of global warming catastrophe theories make.

He began his 40-minute presentation by extending an olive branch to Gore, saying that "much of what Vice President Gore says about climate change is correct. The planet is warming; human beings are playing a substantial role in that warming."

But, Hayward quickly added, "The vice president and a lot of other people make some extreme claims about what is likely to happen in the future that are not backed up by science."


There is also no consensus on the status of ice caps and glaciers, he argues, noting that some scientists point to receding or melting ice in western Antarctica while others point to thickening ice in eastern Antarctica.


Hayward also criticized Gore and others for presenting what he called "extreme claims about what's happening." He cited an image published in Vanity Fair which shows New York City flooded after an 80-foot rise in seas levels caused by the complete melting of the ice sheets in Greenland and the Antarctic.

According to predictions released by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change in 2001, however, the worst-case scenario shows sea levels rising by fewer than three feet in the next 100 years. And, he said, the IPCC's upcoming report, scheduled for release next year, will likely cut that prediction in half.

Here's another piece debunking Al Gore, Cosmic Joke.
