I dont think Al Gore took the measurements himself. So either he was relying on erroneous data from scientists, or straight up pushing political lies. Either ways his conclusions were readily accepted by left wing climate alarmists. The film won an Academy Award for best Documentary
Scientists dont have legislative authority. So we can listen to them and choose to make adjustments in our own lives.
Politicians like Al Gore relied on “empircal data” to predict costal cities would be submerged in sea water by 2013. Do you want political decrees made by .0000001% of the population concentrated in DC, based on that kind of “empirical scientific data?”
Correct me if Im wrong but I assume the whole reason you engage this subject is to argue in favor of political intervention... right?
Should we have listened to politicians like Al Gore and evacuated cities like Miami based on “scientific empirical data?”
