While it isn't as ludicrous as Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth" and makes some token effort to represent different sides of the argument, the problem is that Stewart has still clearly made up his mind which side he's on and isn't really willing to take the other side of this issue seriously. He leaves out critical items like the fact that Mann's "Hockey Stick" graph, when corrected, actually proves that the Medieval Warm Perior was warmer than today and continues to claim otherwise.
There's plenty of other misinformation as well.
Also, Stewart has an annoying tendency to get very sentimental in his presentation. It is as though he's targeting the 10-14 age group.
Bottom line: take this with a pinch of salt. Take a look at "Doomsday Called Off" or "The Cloud Mystery", two Scandinavian-made films (in English) to show honest criticism of the theory that humans are causing dangerous climate change.
