They both push the limits quite a bit, but anyone who actually does investigate the facts would likely vote in favor of Beck. His research connects the dots better than anyone I have ever seen. I don't agree with everything he says, but you can investigate his claims and you will find almost all to be factual. You are not likely to come to the same conclusion with Gore's claims.

Is global warming occurring? Yes it is, but the planet has been getting warmer since the end of the Little Ice Age, which ended around 1850. Both NASA and Science.com also report that the sun has been putting out more energy since they started tracking solar radiation. There have also been two time periods in the past 2000 years that were much warmer than today: The Roman Period and the Medieval Period. The Medieval Period was followed by The Little Ice Age where for almost 500 years the temperatures in the civilized world was much colder than today. All of this is documented in books and on the web.
Al Gore's premise that virtually all scientists are in agreement that global warming caused by man ignores the fact that a growing number of global scientists disagree with his statement. These same scientists periodically file an objection with the US Senate.
These are posted on the US Senate web site, but you will never hear about them in the mainstream media. The latest report has not been posted, which is no surprise given the guy in charge of the Senate. It has over 1000 scientists on the dissenting list and who disagree with Al Gore and the official UN view. It is interesting to read the comments made by the dissenting scientists in the reports.

The global warming nuts only look at the warming trends over the summer months. They ignore the cooling trends in the winter. We have had several record cold winters over the past several years. The net effect when one offsets the other is that there has not been any average global warming for the past 16 years. If the ice caps are melting at the rate the global warming nuts claim, the oceans would have risen by at least a few feed by now. How much have they risen? Nada.
