Dafydd at Big Lizards has caught the Associated Press puffing up Al Gore’s supposed-to-shock-you-mentary “An Inconvenient Truth” – the AP requested opinions from 100 top scientists in the country, and only received 19 responses in turn.
But 19 positive responses for Gore’s ‘documentary’ from the scientists who responded were apparently enough for the AP to declare that “the nation’s top climate scientists” are giving the documentary “5 stars for accuracy” as if 19 scientists were represenative of the entire science community.
The “inconvenient truth” for the AP is that they need more of a consensus from the science community before making such a sweeping declaration.
