Al Gore Kindle Book Doesn’t Sell as Well as the Refutation

Written by Joe Scudder

The ebook debunking the Al Gore Kindle book is selling better on Amazon’s Kindle store than the ebook it is refuting.

It has got to be a slap in the face to Silicon Valley that the new Al Gore Kindle title “An Inconvenient Sequel” is being outsold on the Amazon Kindle store by Roy Spencer’s “An Inconvenient Deception.” Remember, the Kindle technology is revolutionizing publishing. Amazon made it much easier to self-publish and sell a book. What is the result? Conservatives win in the marketplace?

Soon, I expect Amazon to start putting ideological restrictions on their platform, just like Google, YouTube, and Facebook.

The Daily Caller reports, “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.
