Absolutely.  It's a shame that the whole issue has been politicized as
much as it has.  There's no way to be sure of the "facts" as they're
presented in documentaries with agendas, or even to be sure that the
scientific community will accept a change in theories if the evidence
changes...

It's actually pretty scary.

Yes, that sounds like it makes sense, based on the theories put forth
in the film.  Many of the scientists and researchers interviewed in
the film are doing good, real science, and there are plenty of real
theories out there for global warming that don't involve heavy
contribution from the greenhouse effect caused by human activity.

I'd like to read about this research in published scientific
literature, though.

As I said before, I'm not really interested in defending Gore's film,
nor do I see anything compelling about the comparison.  I don't make
my claims based on Gore's presentation of facts, so the sites
discrediting him don't affect my argument.

Scientific literature showing significant evidence to the contrary
would be really refreshing and encouraging to see, but until then, I
have to go with what makes sense, whether it's pleasant or not.
