By the way, nine ‘errors’ (each time the word error was used in the report it was surrounded by single quote) were found by the court and the film was not banned from being shown in Britain.

Here’s a London Times article about the High Court Judge. He banned the film from being shown in schools because he feels Gore is an alarmist and the film was more political than scientific.

He says though that Gore is “broadly accurate”. The Judge speculates on the drying of Chad Lake the loss of Kilimanjaro’s snows and dismisses manmade global warning as a reason, that climate scientists say there is no link. And that the polar bears are not drowning.

He ends the article with this, though:

Despite finding nine significant errors the judge said many of the claims made by the film were fully backed up by the weight of science. He identified “four main scientific hypotheses, each of which is very well supported by research published in respected, peer-reviewed journals and accords with the latest conclusions of the IPCC”.

In particular, he agreed with the main thrust of Mr Gore’s arguments: “That climate change is mainly attributable to man-made emissions of carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide (‘greenhouse gases’).”
