I received a copy of this film by mail, An Inconsistent Truth and despite my misgivings about the name of the production company “Extry Good” and it’s talk-radio pedigree, I’ll have to say its better than many other efforts I’ve seen. It has a number of themes familiar to WUWT readers, such as the Climategate issue, the hypocrisy of Gore, and Mann’s hockey stick nonsense, but misses the mark on the “hide the decline” issue when it talks about scientists hiding declining global temperatures, versus the real issue of hiding the declining tree ring proxy record.
Still, compared to some of the blunders Al Gore has made, such as the Earth’s core temperature is “millions of degrees” or the outright lie where he faked a CO2 experiment in post production and refuses to correct it two years later, I’ll give them a pass on this confusing global temps versus the proxy record. After all, Mann himself thinks his hockey stick made from a few tree ring records represents the globe. Some people familiar to WUWT readers such as Dr. John Christy, Dr. Roy Spencer, Dr. Fred Singer, and Steve Milloy (among others) have interviews in it.

This press release from today:
Valentine calls Gore out on ’24 Hours of Reality’
Al Gore is at it again. In a constant, frantic effort to stay relevant he’s conducting what he calls ‘24 Hours of Reality‘ on the Internet he claims to have created but his 24 hours is anything but reality.
Gore starts by saying, “We’re dumping 90 million tons of heat-trapping carbon pollution into the atmosphere every 24 hours.” First of all, the “carbon pollution” Gore refers to is carbon dioxide. It’s what we exhale with every breath. It’s what plants take in as food and it most certainly is not a pollutant. Using the word “dumping” evokes a visual of some huge carbon trash truck backing up to the atmosphere and carelessly dumping its load. What, in fact, is happening is humans and other animals are actually breathing, much to the chagrin of Gore. Automobiles, that used to actually pollute much more than they do today, now have catalytic converters that convert the nasty, real pollution into carbon dioxide which is actually beneficial to the planet. In fact, scientists tell me if you want a perfectly functioning internal combustion engine all you’ll get as a byproduct is carbon dioxide. In other words, it’s been the goal of an entire industry for decades.
Gore has also now coined a new term: dirty weather. From the guy who brought you “carbon pollution” comes a new phrase designed to scare you out of your money. Gore’s “dirty weather” refers to so-called extreme weather, which Gore claims is getting more extreme. The truth is extreme weather is getting less so. Gore’s claims of more hurricanes, more tornadoes, more floods and more droughts have all been proven wrong. In fact, most everything Gore has predicted around the hysteria of climate change has ended up being a lie.
Gore continues to stick to his claim that carbon dioxide emissions are warming the planet when every scientist in the world now acknowledges that global temperatures have not risen in more than a decade. Gore and others can try to explain it away but the stubborn fact remains. We have not warmed in 15 or so years and many scientists predict that we may actually be entering a cooling phase. All of the climate models that Gore and other climate alarmists have been pointing to all these years have been wrong.
Gore also continues to try to scare people about sea levels. He claims cataclysmic rises in sea levels when none of it is true. Everyone needs to watch this report on sea levels from Tom Harris of the International Climate Science Coalition. All of these claims of rising sea levels have been totally debunked yet Gore continues to fear-monger. Why?
I’m going to tell you something very few are willing to tell you. Al Gore is a con man. I know that’s not politically correct and it’s something more polite commentators try to avoid but we can avoid it no longer. When your principal residence is a 10,000-square-foot mansion that uses 10 times the power of the average American home even after you’ve supposedly “greened” it, you’re a hypocrite. When you own multiple other homes, a humongous house boat and fly around the world in private jets you are not green, no matter how much you pay in silly “carbon offsets.” Gore is not some miserly power-pincher who recycles dental floss and sacrifices his life for the cause. His carbon footprint is on par with the Queen of England yet he lectures us and scolds us about our own power consumption.
The fact of the matter is Al Gore is neck deep in so-called green investments that stand to make him hundreds of millions of dollars. Much of it is subsidized by the U.S. government and a sizable chunk has already gone down the drain. We chronicle this in our movie, An Inconsistent Truth. The only green Al Gore is concerned about is the green in his pocket and he’s making more of it at your expense. He admonishes anyone who dares challenge him as being in the hip pocket of Big Oil yet he just made $70 million by selling his TV network to one of the largest oil-producing countries on the planet, Qatar, which owns Al Jazeera.
The world is spending $1 billion a day on global warming according to the Climate Policy Initiative and that’s about half what they think we should be spending. It is a colossal waste of resources that could be spent on combatting real problems like smog and water pollution. Instead, Al Gore and others continue to spread the terror of climate change in an effort to line their own pockets. It’s disgraceful.
Phil Valentine is the producer of the Amazon.com best-selling documentary, An Inconsistent Truth, the definitive answer to Al Gore’s movie. Winner of three film festival awards including Best Documentary at the Nevada Film Festival.
