could it be there is no, or little, science there

Well, John, the major thrust of his presentation is based on peer-reviewed statistical observations. His sources are provided.

So I would say, no.

If you feel there are substantive counter-hyptheses, with supporting data, there's at least one thread on which to raise the issue. In addition, it should be pointed out again that the network of scientists constituting the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change are not engaged in idle rhetorical displays. Yet their data seems to sorrespond well with Mister Gore's.   

The rationale for his being given the Peace prize is because (a) he is not himself a scientist and (b)the issues he makes widely known will become a central cause of the disruption of peace, unless they are addressed; in fact, the Committee pointed out, this is alreayd beginning to happen.
