Electricity Daily: The NAS report casts serious doubts on the conventional scientific wisdom of man-made climate warming, particularly as described by political advocates such as former Vice President Al Gore.... Those who argue that solar activity drives global climate, not CO2, will take heart.
Dumkoff Inhofe (R-OK):
Today’s NAS report reaffirms what I have been saying all along, that Mann’s ‘hockey stick’ is broken.(Via Think Progress). Asked about these, Al Gore said (and I swear I headlined this post before I read Gore's remarks)
...global warming skeptics "will seize on anything to say up is down and black is white." Gore explained that science, by nature, thrives on uncertainty and tries to eliminate it; politics, on the other hand, is vulnerable to being paralyzed by uncertainty. When science and politics converge, Gore argued, the chance for "cowardice is high."
