Neun Fehler? Dann her mit dem Nobelpreis!

Schon bemerkenswert: Da stellt vorgestern ein hohes britisches Gericht neun schwere sachliche und interpretatorische Fehler in Al Gores Klima-Lügen-Filmchen "Eine unbequeme Wahrheit" fest und versieht den Film mit Auflagen, bevor er Schülern in Großbritannien gezeigt werden darf - und heute erhält dieser "Michael Moore der Umweltheuchelei" glatt den Friedensnobelpreis!
Und hier die neun Punkte, um die es geht und die der Guardian dokumentiert:

The film claimed that low-lying inhabited Pacific atolls "are being inundated because of anthropogenic global warming" - but there was no evidence of any evacuation occurring

· It spoke of global warming "shutting down the ocean conveyor" - the process by which the gulf stream is carried over the north Atlantic to western Europe. The judge said that, according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, it was "very unlikely" that the conveyor would shut down in the future, though it might slow down

· Mr Gore had also claimed - by ridiculing the opposite view - that two graphs, one plotting a rise in C02 and the other the rise in temperature over a period of 650,000 years, showed "an exact fit". The judge said although scientists agreed there was a connection, "the two graphs do not establish what Mr Gore asserts"

· Mr Gore said the disappearance of snow on Mt Kilimanjaro was expressly attributable to human-induced climate change. The judge said the consensus was that that could not be established

· The drying up of Lake Chad was used as an example of global warming. The judge said: "It is apparently considered to be more likely to result from ... population increase, over-grazing and regional climate variability"

· Mr Gore ascribed Hurricane Katrina to global warming, but there was "insufficient evidence to show that"

· Mr Gore also referred to a study showing that polar bears were being found that had drowned "swimming long distances to find the ice". The judge said: "The only scientific study that either side before me can find is one which indicates that four polar bears have recently been found drowned because of a storm"

· The film said that coral reefs all over the world were bleaching because of global warming and other factors. The judge said separating the impacts of stresses due to climate change from other stresses, such as over-fishing, and pollution, was difficult

· The film said a sea-level rise of up to 20ft would be caused by melting of either west Antarctica or Greenland in the near future; the judge ruled that this was "distinctly alarmist"

· This article was amended on Friday October 12 2007. A panel in the article above listing the significant errors found by a high court judge in Al Gore's documentary on global warming was labelled The nine points, but contained only eight. The point we omitted was that the film said a sea-level rise of up to 20ft would be caused by melting of either west Antarctica or Greenland in the near future; the judge ruled that this was "distinctly alarmist". The missing point has been added.

Irgendwie schon alles nicht so ganz unwichtig, oder?

Und was machen Bundesumweltminister Sigmar "Knut" Gabriel und der WWF nun mit den 6000 DVDs, die sie im März zur Bearbeitung der Hirne unserer Kinder an deutsche Schulen verteilt haben?
