Presenting the antithesis to Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth, college professor Larry Bell describes the global warming crisis as something that was manufactured for political gain.Contrast this with the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry who cancelled a presentation by the Oregon's chapter of the American Meteorological Society at the last minute.

“The climate issue is one of politics, not of science,” Bell said.
Author of Climate of Corruption: Politics and Power Behind the Global Warming Hoax, Bell was the opening speaker Thursday for the Palm Beach Round Table’s 2011-12 season.
Steve Pierce, president of the Oregon chapter, emailed a response late Monday: "The Oregon Chapter of the American Meteorological Society is disappointed that the
November 29th meeting on global warming will not continue as originally planned. While we understand that OMSI has reservations related to our meeting's topic on global warming, our chapter has not taken a stance on this issue."
Gordon Fulks, a local physicist, was one of the scheduled speakers. He said the society tried to round up speakers with opposing viewpoints to join the panel, but they refused.
The presentation would have come with disclaimers beforehand that neither OMSI nor the American Meteorological Society endorsed the panel's view, Fulks said.
