An Astounding Fantasy

March 2007
Forbes Asia;3/26/2007, Vol. 3 Issue 5, p12
The author asserts the misconceptions on environmental health, brought by Al Gore's award-laden documentary "'An Inconvenient Truth." According to the author, the film showed seas rising by 20 feet, however, the United Nation's latest report has revised downward from 26 inches to 17 inches, its estimates of how much the seas are going to rise in the next 100 years. The author also claims that despite the film's images of glaciers melting away, the fact is that many of them are expanding.
