There will be a lot of criticism of this decision, mainly because it is a bad one but also because Gore himself is a charmless, mendacious hypocrite. This article (written by someone who believes in climate change) comprehensively dissects Gore. And my favourite example of Gore’s deception coincides with the author’s:
But my favourite Gore memory lapse is his account of being sung to sleep with the lullaby Look for the Union Label, written in 1975. How sweet: being sung to sleep by your parents at the age of 27.Quite. And I wonder whether Gore will fly when he goes to accept his prize?
UPDATE BY YOUR HUMBLE AND UTTERLY ENRAGED DEVIL: this is unbelievable, I am absolutely fucking raging. I have been invited back on the Wolverhampton Radio Politics Show this evening to talk about it.
In the meantime, A Place To Stand reports the BBC's attitude to the high court decision on Gore's film.
This internal memo from the BBC, published by CCNet, explains how the BBC is going to spin it
From Roger Harrabin
BBC Environment Analyst
In any future reporting of Gore we should be careful not to suggest that the High Court says Gore was wrong on climate.......
We might say something like: "Al Gore whose film was judged by the High Court to have used some debatable science" or "Al Gore whose film was judged in the High Court to be controversial in parts".
The key is to avoid suggesting that the judge disagreed with the main climate change thesis.
I like the use of the word "debatable" to mean "clearly untrue". The suggestion that the BBC is anything other than a wholly corrupt state propaganda organisation deliberately spinning the facts is debatable - but the evidence absolutely shows that that is what it is.
But, remember, the BBC is just utterly fucking impartial, OK? Fucking fuck fuckitty fuck-fuck fuck. And what's more, FUCK.
Yet another victory for the mendacious liars of this world and yet this must be a first: the Nobel Peace Prize has been given to a man who has proven to be a fucking lying cunt in the High Court!
