re: #379 b_sharp

Where did Gore lie? What data for the graphs was lost? What makes you believe the Antarctic is not melting?

Sounds to me you have fallen for the misinformation spread by the denialsphere without investigating their points more fully, and have only grudgingly accepted the truth of AGW.

The Arctic IS melting. So is the Antarctic. But the timeline is nowhere near Gore’s.

I have been among the first to realize that this AGW was for real. The good science is convincing. There’s a lot of it. But unfortunately we lose in the public sphere when we try to insist that all the AGW science has been sound. Science doesn’t work that way. People make mistakes. People lie. (Remember Piltdown man. It didn’t disprove evolution!) Science is put together so that we arrive at the truth even though we have mere mortals doing the work.
