While discussing Al Gore’s book, An Inconvenient Truth, with British filmmaker and climate change skeptic Phelim McAleer, the following inaccurate exchange took place:

HANNITY: Well, [Gore's] claiming that this court decision actually, you know, favored his point of view, that is absolutely false.

MCALEER: That is false.

HANNITY: Explain.

MCALEER: Well, the court case, it was a lengthy hearing, maybe a month of hearings, there was nine aspects of An Inconvenient Truth they looked at and they found nine significant errors or exaggerations.

Hannity’s “absolutely false” claim, obviously meaning that the court did not favor Gore’s point of view whatsoever, is incorrect. Justice Michael Burton, actually stated that it is substantially founded upon scientific research and fact.” And:

I have no doubt that Dr Stott, the Defendant’s expert, is right when he says that: “Al Gore’s presentation of the causes and likely effects of climate change in the film was broadly accurate.”

One Response to “Sean Hannity Falsehood on Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth”

    What I dont understand is that why is this a left or right issue? I mean you have to be a republican to disagree with this argument?

    Regardless of whether or not you believe global warming is real or not (and I do believe), it still shouldn’t give you a reason to totally poo-poo things that are better for the environment.

    Even if you dont believe, what’s wrong with recycling? What’s wrong with hybrid vehicles and reducing our dependence on foriegn oil? I mean, besides the global impact, it also severs our ties with relying on corrupt nations, it builds our economy and gives us renewable sources of energy. What the hell is wrong with that?

    I guess if you are a republican, you hate all of that too? I dont know or understand.
