The real inconvenient truth

As Al Gore (you remember him, he invented the Internet) prepares to release his new movie, An Inconvenient Truth, the guys at JunkScience have put together a page that summarises (it's a complex issue, so the summary is pretty long) the issues around climate change, "global warming", the greenhouse effect, etc. In talking with friends and colleagues it's pretty clear that most people confuse carbon-reducing measures with anti-pollution laws, think that C02 is an unmitigated negative that is entirely produced by humans, and that the atmosphere has warmed by at least 3 degrees this century. (The real figure is about 0.6 degrees). Anyway, definitely worth a read if you are concerned about this issue.

The Real Inconvenient Truth.
