Al Gore, the Ultimate Flat-Earther

In Al Gore's recent appearance on 60 Minutes (also known as The Wasted Hour) he equated global warmng skeptics as akin to flat-earth advocates.

I submit that ultimately Scary Al is the quintessential flat-earther.

The flat-earther's were the holders of the "scientific consensus" of their day. It was those who challenged that common wisdom that were considered the lunatics.

The scientific community and mainstream media have buried their heads in the sand of the current dogma and refuse to even consider alternative evidence offered up by those who don't agree with their views.

They peer-review each other's articles and nod approvingly of anything that supports their preconceived notions, then categorically deny anything that questions their dogma. When they can't argue the science they resort to ad hominem attacks on their critics.

When you can't argue the facts, start hurling insults.

Seems to me the AGW crowd are the true, modern-day flat-earthers.
