Hmmm, I didn't know he made a comedy film, but the film the Nobel
comittee were concerned with was the Oscar-winning documentary "An
Inconvenient Truth", which was cleared to be shown in UK schools after
axe-grinding truck driver and political activist Stewart Dimmock
failed in his case to have the film banned. Although the judge
commented that there were 9 inconclusive statements in the two hour
film... "[...] it is important to be clear that the central arguments
put forward in An Inconvenient Truth - that climate change is mainly
caused by man-made emissions of greenhouse gases and will have serious
adverse consequences - are supported by the vast weight of scientific
opinion," he said.
And hey, 9 inconclusive statements in a 2 hour film looks a bit better
than 8 out of 8 entirely inaccurate and misleading figures in a report!

Judging by his carbon footprint he must think the whole thing is a big joke. A
very profitable joke for him with his carbon trading investments. Maybe that
should have been the name of the film ? A Profitable Joke.

He knows America is on to the fact that he is a fool; so he now courts
international glory, hoping for a more gullible public. Of course, the folks
here in the US are pretty much the world's leaders in stupidity. In fact,
with Al Gore, it has now become a major export.
