Al Gore afraid to debate his Junk Science with Scientists

While in Denmark to promote his environmental lunacies, Al Gore had the opportunity to debate it with an actual scientist, not the regular activists who create the "global warming consensus". Bjorn Lomborg, a famed European scientist and expert climatologist was supposed to publicly debate Al Gore, but Gore withdrew from the planned meeting. Flemming Rose, the Jyllands-Posten culture editor, penned an interesting expose of the former VP ducking out on the Wall Street journal's Opinion Journal site today taking the former VP to task. How many other papers do you think will mention Gore's cowardice?

Among the specific facts that Rose pointed out are:
  • Gore says global warming has increased malaria in Nairobi, but the World Health Organization says the country is considered malaria free, unlike in the 1920's and 30's when it had epidemics regularly.
  • Gore says that Antarctica is melting and presents picture to "prove" it, but those pictures are from only 2 percent of Antarctica whereas 98 percent of the continent has actually COOLED over the last 35 years.
  • Gore says seas will rise 20 feet, but the U.N. climate panel only thinks it will be 1 foot. Also seas rose only 1 foot over the last 150 years already with little real trouble world wide.
  • Gore says the heat of global warming will kill "2,000" people in the U.K., but freezing temperatures will kill 20,000 more without such "warming". Why are the 2,000 killed by warming more important than the 20,000 who would be killed by freezing?
