Fox News and others in the conservative movement pounced on Al Gore´s impassioned speech against climate change deniers (ShortNews reported), repeating the same misleading claims Gore decried in his address in Aspen.

"I have," he added. "There are very few active, publishing scientists who do not believe elevated levels in greenhouse gases from human activities are primarily responsible for rising temperatures during the last century."
