Truth is inconvenient most of the times. An inconvenient truth is the one which you dare not disclose even to the closest. But as you try hard to conceal the same, you continue to suffer for fear of getting it disclosed. It is like trying to hold back a beach ball under water. You get tired of the effort and eventually fail to keep the ball under water or drown yourself in your attempt to conceal.

An Inconvenient Truth according to Al Gore is When a Scientist findings don't match what the funding source wants to find. So science lies to keep the funds coming.
"According to the GAO, annual federal climate spending has increased from $4.6 billion in 2003 to $8.8 billion in 2010, amounting to $106.7 billion over that period. The money was spent in four general categories: technology to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, science to understand climate changes, international assistance for developing countries, and wildlife adaptation to respond to actual or expected changes. Technology spending, the largest category, grew from $2.56 billion to $5.5 billion over this period, increasingly advancing over others in total share. Data compiled by Joanne Nova at the Science and Policy Institute indicates that the U.S. Government spent more than $32.5 billion on climate studies between 1989 and 2009. This doesn’t count about $79 billion more spent for climate change technology research, foreign aid and tax breaks for “green energy.” And that's just what THE USA SPENDS.
