    Al Gore Outsold On Kindle By An E-Book Debunking ‘An Inconvenient Sequel’

    Former Vice President Al Gore’s new book is lagging in sales, and, in fact, is being outsold on Amazon Kindle by an e-book debunking many of the claims made in “An Inconvenient Sequel.”

    Climatologist Roy Spencer authored an e-book, “An Inconvenient Deception,” to critique the “bad science, bad policy and some outright falsehoods” in Gore’s latest movie and book, which were released in August. Now, it’s ranked higher in Amazon’s Kindle store.

    “There are three big weaknesses in Gore’s new movie: science, economics and energy policy,” Spencer, a noted skeptic of catastrophic global warming, told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

    Gore released the sequel to his widely popular 2006 film “An Inconvenient Truth” in August, embarking on a media tour to promote the book and film. But so far, ticket sales have lagged, and even left-wing reviewers have harshly criticized the film.

    The e-book published to accompany Gore’s film is ranked #51,031 for purchases in the Kindle Store, according to Amazon.com. Spencer’s book is ranked #1,201 for Kindle Store purchases.

    Maybe Algore should get out of the business of fiction or give a shot at writing some other horror story. The one he's been writing (probably ghost-writing) only has so many twists and turns before the plot starts repeating itself. Of course the audience will get bored when they know what the hero is going to say and the bad guy is going to do because they've already seen this movie.

    Even Stephen King had to get away from killer clowns and rabid dogs if he wanted to keep selling books.
