    better than Lewandowsky's peer reviewed and published paper, simply because it doesnt say much.

    op-ed writers choose current events to write about? the nerve of them!

    they picked on Al Gore? shame on the writers! wasnt it enough that a judge actually ruled that a disclaimer pointing out the major fallacies had to be run before Gore's An Inconvenient Truth could be shown to school children? how could they pile on so callously?

    THe actual statement issued by the british magistrate disputes your assertion. From the October 10 United Kingdom High Court of Justice Queen's Bench Division (Administrative Court) judgment:



    There was no "disclaimer" required, merely a set of teacher's notes to help them explain the differences between the films presentation of the science, which was generally accurate, and the public policy advocations which were more poitical opinion than scientifically directed resolutions.

    I am afraid that I am too lazy to look up the list of inaccuracies that were to be presented before AIT could be shown. are you denying that there were serious falsehoods and distortions in that piece of propaganda?

    what do you think will happen when the journal in the OP is confronted with outrage over a large section of the population being labelled by a perjurative term? Lewandowsky's university quickly made him back down, will the journal remain steadfast?
