Forget the Science; Is Al Gore’s Accusation of Skeptic Climate Scientists a Hoax?

Russell Cook


People on Al Gore’s side of the issue know this intuitively: ‘Nearly all climate scientists agree, humans cause global warming - dissent only comes from a tiny cadre of fossil fuel industry-funded skeptics’. You must not question any part of this. Ever.

Presidential candidate Rick Santorum boldly questions the first part. Meanwhile, the accusation against skeptic scientists sits there like an unseen 800lb-gorilla-in-the-room. I suggest this is actually an 8,000lb gorilla. Conservative leaders have much to gain by putting the accusation under hard scrutiny, and probably have no idea how hard Gore’s followers will work to divert attention from its monstrous problems.

Why is this so huge? Two reasons:


It is our attitude toward free thought and free expression that will determine our fate. There must be no limit on the range of temperate discussion, no limits on thought. No subject must be taboo. No censor must preside at our assemblies.

–William O. Douglas, U.S. Supreme Court Justice, 1952
