The only thing we can be sure of about the future is that it will be absolutely fantastic. So if what I say now seems to you to be very reasonable, then I have failed completely. Only if what I tell you appears absolutely unbelievable, have we any chance of visualizing the future as it really will happen.

Gore Responds to 9 'errors'

Mr. Gore himself has responded to the infamous nine 'errors'. On the substance, he agrees with RealClimate and with me; the film pleads innocent on eight counts, a bit off base on the ninth.

Gore stresses, as have Deltoid, Inel and Stoat, that the judge's principal verdict is that the film is a sufficiently fair representation of the scientific mainstream to be shown in British schools.

On the whole, though, I think none of the commentary from the rest of us usual suspects or the press has expressed the core truth of the matter as well as Dr. Rabett has.
