QUOTING MICHAELJOHN--"Many climate scientists believe that global warming is being caused by the burning of fossil fuels, while a minority of equally honest and intelligent climate scientists dispute these claims. Unfortunately you don't hear their views in this movie."
Neither, the filmmakers of An Inconvenient Truth, nor Al Gore, have to give equal time to a bunch of neo-conservative propagandists or anyone else you viciously allege to have facts against the existence of Global Warming threats to humankind.
Al Gore does not have to advertise the propaganda of the neo-right wing. It's his film, not theirs! He can form his presentation without the help of the neo-right.
QUOTING MICHAELJOHN--"That's a very good reason for all viewers to be skeptical about all the so called FACTS in this politically biased documentary."
If anyone is a skeptic, it's not the neo-right in wanting everyone to believe either George W. Bush, God, or especially Nature will somehow let the human race out of its responsibilities--a belief the neo-right only incurs through False Optimism.
The only thing the neo-right has to be skeptical about is any impedance to its ruthless greed.
And, although it is Al Gore's film, and despite MichaelJohn who asserts that "you don't hear their [those disputing the film's claims] views in this movie," Al Gore does mention the prevailing arguments of the "so-called skeptics."
I use quotes around "so-called skeptics" because it's an exact quote from Al Gore in the film. He uses these words in reference to the people who consider themselves to be skeptics about the facts of Global Warming:
"Number one, the so-called skeptics will sometimes say, 'Oh, this whole thing, this is a cyclical phenomenon. There was a medieval warming period after all.' Well, yeah, there was. There it is, right there." Al Gore then points at the presentation slide, a graph entitled Northern Hemisphere Temperature.
"There are two others." He points again. "But compared to what's going on now, there's just no comparison." The camera then zooms in on the section of the graph representing approximately the last 60 years. It's a clear indication of an abnormal rise in temperature and that the temperatures are higher than at any point in the last 1000 years.
(See chapter 8 of the DVD An Inconvenient Truth.)
I'm awfully glad you've given me a chance to quote the film's star the "so-called skeptics" have been slandering, especially since they rarely talk about the film itself--a fact leading me to think the ditto-heads forming the bulk of the "so-called skeptics" never watched the film.
I can tell by their "arguments."
