Your front page story ("Political gain in Gore's Nobel?" Oct. 13) on Al Gore's Nobel Peace Prize states that Gore was "the loser of 2000's razor-thin presi- dential election." This is not exactly true. The Supreme Court inter- vened before the vote could be com- pleted in Florida. We'll never know who won. The Republican-dominated court essentially appointed Bush as president in one of the most disputed and dubious actions in Supreme Court history.
I was also distressed by the prominence your story gave to that minuscule segment of scientific opinion that disputes man-made global warming. It gave a very false impression.
