Spencer, an award winning former NASA senior scientist for climate studies and a principal research scientist at the University of Alabama in Huntsville, said he wrote the point-by-point rebuttal in two weeks after Gore’s Aug. 4 wide release of the documentary “An Inconvenient Sequel.”
Spencer, who continues to work with NASA on the U.S. Science Team, also gave a disparaging critique of Gore’s new movie, claiming it is rife with propaganda.
“After viewing Gore’s most recent movie, ‘An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power,’ and after reading the book version of the movie, I was more than a little astounded,” Spencer said on his blog, Global Warming. “The new movie and book are chock-full of bad science, bad policy and factual errors.”
The leading climatologist and author of three previously published books on climate change contends Gore’s new documentary is just as bogus as its 2006 predecessor.
Spencer, seorang ilmuwan senior NASA pemenang penghargaan dalam studi iklim dan ilmuwan periset utama di Universitas Alabama di Huntsville, mengatakan dia menuliskan poin demi poin bantahan dalam dua minggu setelah Gore menerbitkan buku “An Inconvenient Sequel” pada 4 Agustus.
Spencer yang masih bekerja dengan NASA dalam Tim Sains Amerika, juga memberikan kritik bahwa film baru Gore penuh dengan propaganda, kesalahan sains, aturan dan fakta palsu.
