In criticizing An Inconvenient Truth (http://www.nycny.com/movies/inconvenient_truth_an/index.html by calling Al Gore a “big fat liar,” Eric Lurio demonstrates how the “skeptics” of global warming make up their own analysis to prove their points. His statement that the film cites “a bogus survey of scientific papers on global warming in order to show that there's no disagreement on the subject” is not supported in any way, which is because it is completely without foundation. His “bogus survey” was published in one of the world’s leading scientific publications (Science magazine, volume 306, p. 1686) by a reputable scientist (N. Oreskes with the Department of History and Science Studies Program at the University of California in San Diego) only after careful peer review. Clearly, Mr. Lurio’s work never passed through such a peer review process, but truth and accuracy does not seem to concern “skeptics” like Mr. Lurio. Andrew Gunther ----- Andrew J.

There were clearly problems with the survey, and these complaints have been quite public. Notice that he doesn't mention the Little Ice Age, which Gore expicitly denied happening despite every single climatologist in the world aknowledges.
This is fun, especially how the personal attacks have nothing to do with anything.
