  • 1. AL GORE IS BUSY CREATING A RELIGION OF SCIENCE FORTUNATELY, THERE ARE STILL SOME OBJECTIVE SCIENTISTS WILLING TO SPEAK UP. THIS PRESENTATION DRAWS FREELY FROM: “YEAR OF GLOBAL COOLING”, DAVID DEMING, WASH TIMES, DEC 19, 2007 . David Deming is a geophysicist, an adjunct scholar with the National Center for Policy Analysis, and Associate Professor of Arts and Sciences at the University of Oklahoma.
  • 2. CREATING A RELIGION OF SCIENCE: “ The good news is we know what to do. The good news is, we have everything we need now to respond to the challenge of global warming. We have all the technologies we need, more are being developed, and as they become available and become more affordable when produced in scale, they will make it easier to respond. But we should not wait, we cannot wait, we must not wait.” AL GORE, speech at National Sierra Club Convention, Sept. 9, 2005
