As in, the members of the academy apparently care little for what the word documentary means anymore and only cares about stroking the Hollywood libtard political fetish of the moment. Their latest ejaculation being Al Gore's little fantasy, An Inconvenient Truth, winning an Oscar.
Patrick J. Michaels runs through the propaganda, be sure to read it all:
The main point of the movie is that, unless we do something very serious, [...] raising sea levels over twenty feet by the year 2100.
Where’s the scientific support for this claim? Certainly not in the recent Policymaker’s Summary from the United Nations’ much anticipated compendium on climate change. Under the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s medium-range emission scenario for greenhouse gases, a rise in sea level of between 8 and 17 inches is predicted by 2100. Gore’s film exaggerates the rise by about 2,000 percent.
For all the talk of peer review lately when it comes to ID, this next point is rather interesting.
Nowhere in the traditionally refereed scientific literature do we find any support for Gore’s hypothesis. Instead, there’s an unrefereed editorial by NASA climate firebrand James E. Hansen, in the journal Climate Change — edited by Steven Schneider, of Stanford University, who said in 1989 that scientists had to choose “the right balance between being effective and honest” about global warming — and a paper in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences that was only reviewed by one person, chosen by the author, again Dr. Hansen.
When it comes to global warming, apparently the truth is inconvenient. And it’s not just Gore’s movie that’s fiction. It’s the rhetoric of the Congress and the chief executive, too.
With the way the word documentary is used nowadays, ranging from Michael Moore's hack jobs to now this latest, it should be easy for any one of us to gain such prestige and approval. Because of this, I'm going to make a movie about how Bill Clinton and Al Gore helped encouraged Al Qaeda and other terrorists in Iraq to kill Americans and Iraqis so that a Democrat could get elected in 2008. Don't worry, I'll call it a documentary and thereby guarantee that facts will not be a concern, at least to the academy and Hollywood. Oops - I attacked a lefty, my bad. No problem, I'll just stick George Bush, Cheney and Halliburton in there and say that the plan is to get a Democrat president so the country swings strongly to the right with congressional and local elections that follow.
I'm going to start working on my Oscar speech now and picking what fancy parties I'll be invited to. If you finance my film, you can come along as well.
