Gore came under fire during the question-and-answer portion of his speech when Phelim McAleer, director of the film “Not Evil, Just Wrong,” stepped up to the microphone.
When asked about nine supposed errors in “An Inconvenient Truth,” Gore responded the British High Court ruled in favor of showing “An Inconvenient Truth” in schools, “and that’s really the bottom line.”
The two then got into a heated debate about whether polar bears are endangered. When Gore asked McAleer if he thought polar bears were endangered, McAleer’s only response was that their numbers had increased. McAleer’s microphone was then shut off and Gore moved on to the next question.
McAleer did attempt to receive an answer by continuing to push after his microphone was shut off, but to no avail.
“He hasn’t answered the question. … I would appreciate his answer,” McAleer said.
