Al Gore’s United States Senate Environment and Public Works Committee Testimony

By | July 19, 2007

Background

align=”left”> On March 21, 2007, former U.S. Vice President Al Gore testified before a joint meeting of the Science and Technology Committee’s Subcommittee on Energy and Environment and the Energy and Commerce’s Subcommittee on Energy and Air Quality in the House of Representatives, as well as the Senate’s Environment and Public Works Committee on the subject of global warming. We have analyzed Mr. Gore’s written testimony presented at those hearings for accuracy and found several statements that are either highly debatable, seriously exaggerated or distorted, or entirely incorrect. As a result, we have prepared this science-based rebuttal, which demonstrates that either Mr. Gore had a poor knowledge of the available scientific literature when composing his testimony or that he deliberately chose to ignore numerous pertinent scientific facts that contradict the essence of his global warming thesis. And to enable everyone to satisfy themselves that we have not taken any of Mr. Gore’s testimony out of context in this endeavor, his full testimony can be accessed on the website of the Senate’s Environment and Public Works Committee here.
