From the May 2008 Idaho Observer:

British court inconveniently rates Gore film at half truth

The decision by the government to distribute Al Gore’s film "An Inconvenient Truth" for showing to school children prompted Stewart Dimmock of the New Party to file a court action challenging the accuracy of several "facts" Gore presented. The Court found October 12, 2007, that the film was misleading in at least 11 respects and that the Guidance Notes drafted by the Education Secretary’s advisors served only to exacerbate the political propaganda in the film.

The court ruled that, in order for the film to be shown, the government must first amend its Guidance Notes to Teachers making it clear that 1.) The film is a political work and promotes only one side of the argument. 2.) If teachers present the film without making this plain they may be in breach of section 406 of the Education Act 1996 and guilty of political indoctrination. 3.) Nine inaccuracies have to be specifically drawn to the attention of school children.

Among the inaccuracies are: Melting snow on Mt. Kilimanjaro is not evidence of global warming; ice core samples do not prove that elevated CO2 has caused increased temperatures over 650,000 years; Hurricane Katrina was not an affect of global warming; Lake Chad is not drying up from global warming; polar bears drowned in a violent storm, not because their ice was melting; it is scientifically impossible for global warming to stop the Gulf Stream and throw Europe into an ice age; there is no evidence to support claims that global warming is bleaching coral reefs ; claims that people have had to evacuate Pacific islands due to rising sea levels from global warming appear to be false.

Geologist Bob Carter, a professor at James Cook University in Queensland, Australia and a critic of global warming theory, supplied the court with 20 of Gore’s inaccuracies. Carter’s analysis of the same data Gore cited shows that the earth has been cooling since 1998.
