What the government is doing (both sides) is NOT the scientific method. They are hunting down and finding those scientists that agree with their platform and agenda.

Get government out of the picture and let the scientists debate in an unbiased fashion.
What's going on regarding global warming is politics not scientific investigation. Read the snippet below and tell me that is happening in Washington and practiced by Al Gore.

Scientific method - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

snippet:
"Among other facets shared by the various fields of inquiry is the conviction that the process be objective to reduce biased interpretations of the results. Another basic expectation is to document,archive and share all data and methodology so they are available for careful scrutiny by other scientists, thereby allowing other researchers the opportunity to verify results by attempting to reproduce them. This practice, called full disclosure, also allows statistical measures of the reliability of these data to be established."

Too many of those who are called "Doctor" are already embeded in the corporations who will benefit one way or another. (The corporation plays both sides of the equation - if they kick up enough dust, and get both sides fighting, they will get thier lobbyists to get the in-the-pocket senators and senatorial staff to insert what they want).
