"Answer the question with integrity." This lies at the heart of the matter. PRO-manmade (anthropogenic) global warming (AGW) activists such as Gore have been caught time after time cheating, misrepresenting, and deceiving in order to score points in the "conversation."
- Gore admitted pushing subsidies for corn-based ethanol, despite evidence showing lack of results, simply to score political points in Iowa.
- The Climategate e-mails show that scientists privately conspired to punish editors of peer-reviewed journals for publishing studies that disputed AGW, while publicly deriding any research that was not published in those same journals.
- Hysterical claims -- inevitably followed by calls for more government funding -- have been shown to be based on a single author's words, discredited data, or sloppy research.
- Claims of horrendous consequences have been "adjusted" when reality fails to match earlier predictions.
