Gore says "yes!" Will testify at House global warming hearing

Former Vice President Al Gore has accepted an invitation to testify at a House subcommittee hearing on climate change March 21, according to a Feb. 2 statement from the Energy and Commerce Committee.

Gore will appear as the sole witness at a joint hearing of the Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Energy and Air Quality and the House Science and Technology Subcommittee on Energy and Environment.

The hearing is one of several expected to be held over the next few months by the Energy and Commerce Committee to address global warming.

Gore's documentary film, "An Inconvenient Truth," has been nominated for an Oscar, and he has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.

A Canadian newspaper just published an excellent series describing the details fo some reputed scientists who are now called "deniers" of Global warming. Well worth a read, to understand where they're coming from and whether the attacks against them are justified or simply ad hominem.
