One notable inaccuracy in the move was the prediction about the increase of sea levels in the 21st century. Gore suggested that a 20 foot increase was a possiblity. Most scientists think the rise will be closer to a few inches.


Here's a few others:

Yes, the allegations concerning sea-levels. Firstly, ice occupies a greater volume than the water forming it. This is not open to denial. Thus when water-bourne ice melts the affect upon the subsequent level of water is minimal. Secondly, the land-bourne ice layer shrinks and expands annually, hence the "spectacular" figures of allegedly shrinking ice cover in the Arctic. In fact, the rate of re-frigelation is greater and both the area and depth of the ice is now greater than earlier reported this year.
