The drive-by CBS News obvious plays game with their title. There is no such thing as "Climate Change Skeptics." Climate changes constantly, no one skeptic about the fact climate is changing at any rate. Their subtitle about "doubting global warming is man-made" at least brings up the key point.
Global warming is man-made is simply junk talk. I don't think that it is even qualified to be called science of any kind because there is no creditable science in there whatsoever.
I don't have any patience to read the advertisement article about their show on Sunday. I only caught the part that Algore comments on the people not convinced that global warming is man-made:
I think that those people are in such a tiny, tiny minority now with their point of view . . .Now that is really junk talk I regret I wasted my time even to pay attention to it. Since I have come this far, I would like to challenge Algore to put a number or a definition to let us know just exactly what does he consider to be"a tiny, tiny minority"?
I am reminded of Galileo Galilei, he was all by himself against the whole world of ignorant hierarchies. Was a lonely Galileo a "tiny, tiny minority" Algore?
There's a list on Wikipedia entitled "List of scientists opposing the mainstream scientific assessment of global warming" with names of truly prominent scientists who were academically accomplished and well-known long before Algore dropped out of divinity school. On that list there are 3 of them believe global warming is not occurring or have ceased; 3 believe accuracy of IPCC climate projections is inadequate; 22 believe global warming is primarily caused by natural processes; 10 believe cause of global warming is unknown; and 3 believe global warming will benefit human society. Are these famous scientists all a tiny, tiny minority, Algore?
At the beginning of this month, there was a conference on global warming in New York City aimed at examining the question "Global Warming: Crisis or Scam?" I blogged about it here. It was attended by over 400 participants and 98 speakers on the theme "there is no scientific consensus on the causes or likely consequences of global warming." Would 98 speakers and 400 participants a tiny, tiny minority?
Algore, I know you have gained a lot of weight, does that really make you an overwhelming majority in your own mind?
Well, I wasn't the only one among the "tiny, tiny minority" that noticed and being offended by Algore's junk talk. The editorial of Investor's Bussiness daily (IBD) today has this to say:
In addition to being gratingly sanctimonious, Gore is wrong. A study conducted by Texas A&M professors found that the more Americans know about global warming, the more likely they are to dismiss it.In other words, the "tiny, tiny minority" is ever growing by the seconds. Pretty soon it will easily burst Algore's ego into tiny, tiny pieces.

By the way, the super video "The Great Global Warming Swindle" is back online. Check it out!
I particularly appreciate IBD's comments on "this weekend's asinine Earth Hour" as
. . . when we were all expected to turn off our lights, and realize it was a metaphor for the darkness that global warming alarmists have been operating under.Algore, eat your tiny, tiny heart out!
