Truth serum for Gore's visit

Rushing the season on Halloween, former VP Al Gore brings his "Inconvenient Truth" fright night tour to Denver this evening. Props to the unnamed Denver Post writer who took the extra effort to balance yesterday's and today's stories on the event by citing the "Convenient Fiction" rebuttal film produced by Steven Hayward of the American Enterprise Institute. Here is the link for Hayward's thoughtful and carefully documented film.

While we're at it, here is a valuable booklet from the Heartland Institute, "Scientific Consensus on Global Warming."

And here is an excellent full-length treatment by Dennis Avery and Fred Singer, one of those books where the title says it all (or at least says volumes), "Unstoppable Global Warming Every 1500 Years."

If you happen to attend tonight, watch out for those Arctic refugee hordes that have been reported migrating into Colorado -- polar bears, penguins, and the occasional Eskimo, all headed for the high cool up on St. Mary's Glacier by way of the 16th Street Mall.
