    No one's above the law, remember, not even the former vice-president of a man convicted of perjury himself.

    Also, the EPA should be enjoined from enforcing any carbon-related regulations until granted specific authority to do so by law. That's independent of global warming. Only a crazy society would give unelected bureaucrats the authority to seize control of major elements of industrialized society without specific authority from the elected representatives.

    And that permission from the politicians should await the resolution of the global warming hoax.
    That's like democrats requesting Bush be subpeonaed. Come on, seriously?

    Public hearings before congress are just a way for the politicians to get publicity.

    Did Bush commit perjury in sworn testimony before the Senate?

    This is why I and many others don't respect or like you. You make untrue assumptions about people based on their ideology. Anyways, you still have yet to prove he committed perjury. Was he under oath during his movie or something? You have to prove he committed perjury.

    If it's true then Al Gore should have no problem debating his critics. Do you think Stephen Hawking would refuse to defend his books? Hawking, being a real scientist, would most likely welcome the opportunity to demonstrate the validity of his theories, as opposed to Al Gore, who pompously declares the debate over, as if he were the king of science. His hubris and hypocrisy is nauseating, and the damage he's done to science is immeasurable. A just society would throw him in prison for the fraud he's perpetrated.

    His movie was presented as science. Do you think it should be lawful for people to commit scientific fraud? How would you feel if a doctor told you that you couldn't get AIDS from unprotected sex? Does Gore bear any responsibility for the consequences of his movie, consequences which effected and still effect the potential governance of the entire planet?

    I'm saying Gore didn't break a law, can you prove he did? And your comparison to doctors is terrible, does Gore of a doctorate in science?

    He committed fraud. I'm not sure if there is a specific statute that applies, but he was intentionally deceptive.

    You don't like the doctor analogy? Fine, how would you feel if a commercial told you its condoms were 100% effective against AIDS and later you found out they were actually made of a permeable membrane? I mean, it's not like the corporate executives are experts or anything. You shouldn't expect them to know if they're claims are totally false and misleading, right?

    By the way, are you saying Al Gore is not an expert on climate change?
