On The Coldest Day In America In 20 Years, Here Are Al Gore’s Stupidest Global Warming Quotes

By Michael Snyder
Ice Storm
America could actually use some global warming right about now.  It is being projected that low temperatures across the Midwest could be 30 to 50 degrees below averageon Monday morning.  On Sunday, fans that attempted to tailgate before the playoff game between the 49ers and the Packers at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin were discovering that their beers were actually turning to ice before they could drink them.  That is cold.  But things are going to get really chilly when nightfall arrives.  In fact, it is being projected that much of the nation will experience wind chill temperatures of more than 40 degrees below zero, and wind chill temperatures of more than 50 degrees below zero are expected in parts of North Dakota and Minnesota.  The weather is expected to be so cold that the governor of Minnesota has actually decided to close public schools statewide on Monday.  The last time that happened was back in 1997.  The reason why the governor of Minnesota did this is because when temperatures get this low they can literally be life threatening.  When wind chill temperatures get down to about 50 below zero, if your skin is exposed you can literally develop frostbite in about five minutes.  This is being called the coldest day in America in 20 years, and these cold temperatures have many Americans wondering what ever happened to all of that “global warming” that Al Gore and other “climate scientists” have been warning us about for so many years.
If the planet really is getting significantly warmer, our winters should not be like this.  Back in the year 2000, one prominent “climate scientist” boldly declared that future generations of children “just aren’t going to know what snow is.
Oh really?
The truth is that you don’t have to be a “climate scientist” to understand what is happening to the weather.  All you need is a little common sense.
Back in September, I warned that this was going to be “an extremely bitterly cold winter“.  I wrote another article that warned about how cold this winter would be in early December.
Right now we are witnessing cold temperatures that we have not seen in decades.  The following is the way that one meteorologist put it…

“If you’re under 40 (years old), you’ve not seen this stuff before.”

Another meteorologist wanted people to understand just how dangerous this kind of cold weather can be…

“A person not properly dressed could die easily in those conditions.”

To get an idea of just how cold it is up in Minnesota today, just check out the following anecdote that was reported by the BBC

Firemen tackling a blaze in Minneapolis, where temperatures have been below -20C, saw the spray from their hoses turn to ice as it hit the building.

And it is even colder up in Canada.  Things are so cold up in Ontario that “frost quakes” have become very common…

While America collectively freaks out over their impending ‘polar vortex’, Canada is changing the game when it comes to cold weather phenomenon as reports of ‘frost quakes’ emerge from around Toronto and Ontario.
Indeed, as temperatures drop overnight to around -4f around the city hundreds of people are being startled by hearing large booms – causing them to think their homes are being broken into or gunshots are being fired.
In fact, they are merely hearing the after-effects of the frost quakes – or cryoseism – which are more commonly found on a glacier in the polar regions.

So are we really experiencing “global warming”?
Of course not.
If anything, things are actually getting colder.
What the United States and Canada are experiencing right now is making global warming alarmists such as Al Gore look quite foolish.  The following are 10 of Al Gore’s stupidest global warming quotes…
#1 In 2008, Al Gore boldly declared to a German audience that “the entire North ‘polarized’ cap will disappear in 5 years.” (Needless to say, that did not happen.  In fact, the ice cap in the Arctic actually got larger this year.)
#2 “CO2 is the exhaling breath of our civilization, literally. … Changing that pattern requires a scope, a scale, a speed of change that is beyond what we have done in the past.” (Actually, without carbon dioxide life on earth would not exist.)
#3 “The planet has a fever. If your baby has a fever, you go to the doctor. If the doctor says you need to intervene here, you don’t say, ‘Well, I read a science fiction novel that told me it’s not a problem.’ If the crib’s on fire, you don’t speculate that the baby is flame retardant. You take action.” (It sounds like what Al Gore really needs is more cowbell.)
#4 During a speech at NYU Law School in 2006, Al Gore made the following statement: “Many scientists are now warning that we are moving closer to several “tipping points” that could — within as little as 10 years — make it impossible for us to avoid irretrievable damage to the planet’s habitability for human civilization.”
#5 “Here is the truth: The Earth is round; Saddam Hussein did not attack us on 9/11; Elvis is dead; Obama was born in the United States; and the climate crisis is real.”
#6 “The interior of the earth is extremely hot – several million degrees.” (It actually peaks out at about 11,000 degrees.)
#7 “There is an air of unreality in debating these arcane points when the world is changing in such dramatic ways right in front of our eyes because of global warming.”
#8 “It would be an enormous relief if the recent attacks on the science of global warming actually indicated that we do not face an unimaginable calamity requiring large-scale, preventive measures to protect human civilization as we know it.”
#9 “The survival of the United States of America as we know it is at risk. And even more — if more should be required — the future of human civilization is at stake.”
#10 “We ought to approach this challenge [of global warming] with a sense of profound joy and gratitude: that we are the generation about which, a thousand years from now, philharmonic orchestras and poets and singers will celebrate by saying, they were the ones that found it within themselves to solve this crisis and lay the basis for a bright and optimistic human future.”
As time goes by, the scientific evidence continues to mount.  It is becoming painfully evident that the theory of man-made global warming simply is not true.  The following is from a recent New American article

Well, 2013 is almost over, and contrary to the alarmist “predictions” by Gore and what critics refer to as his “doomsday cult,” the latest satellite data show that Arctic ice cover has actually expanded 50 percent over 2012 levels. In fact, during October, sea-ice levels grew at the fastest pacesince records began in 1979. Experts predict the expansion to continue in the years to come, leaving global-warming alarmists scrambling fiendishly for explanations to save face — and to revive the rapidly melting climate hysteria.
In September, meanwhile, data also showed that sea ice levels in Antarctica had expanded to record levels for the second year in a row. Of course, by now, virtually everyone who has been following news about “global warming” — now more often referred to as “climate change” owing to public-relations concerns — also knows that global temperatures have not risen for some 17 years. The spectacular lack of warming demolished all 73 of the “climate models” used by the United Nations to push its controversial theories.

Sadly, most of the governments of the planet still consider “man-made global warming” to be one of the greatest threats facing us, and the U.S. government is leading the charge.  In fact, the U.S. government has been giving other nations billions of dollars to help them cope with “climate change”…

American taxpayers spent $7.45 billion to help developing countries cope with climate change in fiscal years 2010 through 2012, according to a federal government report submitted to the United Nations on a subject that Secretary of State John Kerry described as “a truly life-and-death challenge.”

And it appears that Barack Obama plans to make the fight against global warming a major point of emphasis for the rest of his time in office…

When President Obama leaves office three years from now, the major policy story of his second term — barring some kind of unforeseen invasion — is likely to be climate change. I made this argument at feature length last year, and the evidence continues to mount. Coral Davenport reports today about Secretary of State John Kerry’s “systematic, top-down push to create an agencywide focus on global warming.”

Considering the host of other major problems that this country is facing, it truly is ironic that the federal government is spending so much time and energy fighting a problem that doesn’t even exist.
Speaking of ironic, a team of “climate change scientists” that had recently gone down to the Antarctic to study “global warming” had to be rescued by helicopter when their ship got stranded in the ice…

A group of climate change scientists were rescued by helicopter Jan. 2, after being stranded in the ice since Christmas morning. But the majority of the broadcast networks’ reports about the ice-locked climate researchers never mentioned climate change.

The Russian ship, Akademic Shokalskiy, was stranded in the ice while on a climate change research expedition, yet nearly 98 percent of network news reports about the stranded researchers failed to mention their mission at all. Forty out of 41 stories (97.5 percent) on the network morning and evening news shows since Dec. 25 failed to mention climate change had anything to do with the expedition.

In fact, rather than point out the mission was to find evidence of climate change, the networks often referred to the stranded people as “passengers,” “trackers” and even “tourists,” without a word about climate change or global warming.

Yes, the climate of the earth is changing. Throughout history it has always been changing. Most of that change is due to fluctuations in the gigantic ball of fire that our planet is revolving around.
But the idea that carbon dioxide is going to “destroy the planet” is ludicrous.  Without carbon dioxide we would all die.
And the notion that “man-made global warming” is the “greatest threat” that humanity is facing is absolutely laughable.
Sadly, nothing seems to dissuade the true believers.  Not even days like today.

  1. “Global warming is a hoax. Because it is cold. Today. Where I live.”
    You really have no idea what global warming is do you

    • Climate scientists are caused by a CO2 chemical imbalance and the possibility of Grant Funding and a global tax system. Unfortunaetly the chemical imbalance is spread by contagion and can infect others, even those with no scientific background can become instant experts with no science background at all. IN fact, it is non scientists of this freshly hatched field that talk the most about it without getting paid.
      In healthy people, all chemical emissions are taken into account. The damge caused by these would incur hefty taxes on those who emit depleted uranium or any other harmful emission during wars or in normal life
      They have the ability to respect all chemicals and so instead of a chemical imbalance, they have all their chemicals in balance. These people are just as interested in herbicide, and heavy metals as they are in talking about the weather.
      justkiddingnobutseriously

        • He knows better than you. Have you seen satellite images of both Poles lately – especially of the stranded ship Akademik Schokalskiy – off the coast of Antarctica, along with about three icebreakers? Take a look at them; then, see if you’ve changed your views.

          • Anecdotal evidence does not make for compelling arguments. Views not changed. Again, ‘global warming’ is a misnomer. The term is climate change and it concerns both warming and cooling.

          • ‘Global Warming’ was the marketing term until it was obvious that Gore’s doomsday scenarios weren’t happening. So now they call it ‘Climate Change’ to make the theory critic-proof. Things are warmer now? CLIMATE CHANGE! No wait, things are cooling a little? CLIMATE CHANGE! Both are happening in different places at the same time? CLIMATE CHANGE! It’s whatever you want it to be!
            The term itself means absolutely nothing. Long-term warming and cooling have both been happening for the entire 4.54 billion years that the Earth has been around. With extremes of both heat and cold far in excess of what we currently consider ‘normal’. Most of it cyclical, caused by solar/electrical/other forces that we barely understand.
            So what proof do you have that humankind has: 1) Meaningfully affected the long-term temperature cycle of the planet, AND… 2) That this meddling, if significant, hasn’t been to our own long-term benefit? Such as staving off an Ice Age? We’re overdue for one, after all.
            Create a climate simulation that accurately predicts global weather every day for at least a year out, and I might begin paying attention. Otherwise I’m going to ignore what seems to be nothing more than a dogmatic banker enrichment scheme, and focus on the real environmental problems that the media ignores. Fukushima. Frakking. The legacy of the BP (and other) oil spills. Decaying Infrastructure. Fresh water depletion. All of which cause real environmental problems that deserve far more attention than Al Gore’s doomsday fantasies.

          • Jesus Christ. Yes the Earth naturally goes through periods of warming and cooling. I do not personally have any proof that it’s happening. All I can do is listen to both sides and interpret it to the best of my ability. Any time I argue with a climate denier however it seems the arguments are anecdotal and it’s Gore this and Gore that. None of that is my concern and I can’t really take any person who uses that as the basis of their argument seriously. What I do care about is our survival.
            The term climate change DOES have meaning. Don’t know what you’re on about there. The climate. It changes. Global warming however is not far off as a term as current observations and models predict there will be a very large net positive in global temperatures. Just b/c the US is experiencing a polar vortex doesn’t mean it’s not real. Just b/c it’s extremely cold somewhere on Earth doesn’t mean it’s not real.
            The climate simulation you want doesn’t yet exist but with more powerful supercomputers, it may just happen. Be patient! Just b/c it doesn’t exist yet doesn’t mean its impossible. Your views on the matter are akin to those who thought the world was flat and that the universe revolved around the Earth. Keep an open mind is all I ask.
            Until I see the evidence to support that global warming is not at all occurring, then my views will have changed but the evidence to the contrary, again, are weak variations of govt conspiracy and Al Gore. Things I actually take into consideration but personally are not compelling enough arguments to make me disprove of climate change entirely.

          • You can ‘Believe’ whatever you want, and so can others. I could really care less. Just keep your hands out of our pockets and grow some damn trees with whatever YOU want to spend. But many of us don’t buy it, and for good reason. There are much bigger fish to fry, like the radiation time bomb making its way over from Japan to North America — Barely a peep for 3 years coming this March from the MSM, or the ‘Scientific Community’. Shows you where their bread is buttered. If there was no Global Carbon Tax, none of us would care. But lets face it, this is ALL ABOUT MONEY

          • If you’re really so worried about money, your priority should be the military and American imperialism.
            Really striking how ALL of you believe so strongly about Fukushima. All of the information about it thus far has come from alternative media, which I do not discount, and ZERO scientific research to back it up (I’ll wait till there is some to pass judgment) and yet ALL of you absolutely abhor the reality of climate change which has been scientifically verified.

          • No, it’s not been verified. Because it’s not happening. Verification is the act of observing something that proves a theory. No observation, no verification.
            You’re mistaking politics for science. A small group of scientists has agreed that this theory is probably correct. But that does not ‘prove’ or ‘verify’ anything at all. It’s simply a political act.
            Fukushima, on the other hand, IS happening. Tepco itself has confirmed that is has no idea where the 3 cores from its reactors are. The radioactive steam emissions from the ground, the sorry condition of the holding tanks, and the releases into the ocean are also confirmed by them. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out what’s probably heating water to the boiling point several hundred feet below the damaged reactors. Or do I need to explain the China Syndrome to you?
            The tsunami debris (with its own contaminants) also exists, and has started washing ashore on the west coast of the US. These are facts. Animals are behaving strangely and dying in various places along the coast, which has been widely reported in local media outlets.
            But its much easier to believe in a fantasy crisis than a real one, I guess.

  2. Freaking morons, As Arctic temperature rises the ice shelf shrinks and the Arctic region becomes a better collector of the Sun’s energy, speeding up the warming effect and creating an even wider solar collector from the exposed sea. As the ocean gets warmer from the radiative force of the Sun’s rays, it is in marked contrast with the polar air above it. The heat from the warmed ocean flows upward into the polar air, creating a high pressure system. This high pressure forces the polar air to move, and soon we have a clockwise swirl that pushes frigid air downwards into Europe and across the globe. This newly formed “Arctic Corridor” pushes the frigid air from Europe into Eastern China and the Americas, dropping temperatures and making winter conditions more extreme than usual.

    • That’s right, CO2, which comprises 0.038% of our atmosphere (only 3% of which can generously be considered Mankind’s contribution) is responsible for all this “global warming” – a model blown out of the water, btw, since the Earth has been stable or cooler since 1997. The convoluted excuses put forth by the shrill liberal apologists have been laughingly pathetic for some time now. As if a carbon tax would fix any of this, even if it were true. Even a caveman can look into the sky and realize that Winter comes when the days are shorter, and Summer arrives when the days are longer and the sun is closer. Or are the seasons caused by Man-made CO2 seasonal driving fluctuations? Only the hopelessly ‘clever’ look under mattress cushions for explanations that don’t make sense, and somehow miss the giant fire ball in the sky that greets them every morning. I know its hard being wrong, but at this point, its time to bow in deference to the truth and take your lumps. Hint: Sunspot activity is way down

      • Just because the percentage of carbon dioxide in the air is very small, (small compared to what?) you argue that it could not possibly cause global warming??!?!? What a scientific argument. First of all, global warming is a misnomer. The term is ‘climate change’. The world’s oceans ARE warming up. By how much? Only a couple degrees over the next few decades. ONLY a couple degrees. Do you know how much energy it takes to heat up the world’s oceans just one degree celsius? More than a a billion atomic bombs for every one deg C.
        ‘Global warming’ or ‘climate change’ rather, has not been blown out of water. It is verifiable fact. It takes decades for the changes to occur. I’d rather humanity play it safe and curb emissions than have it gamble its existence away over a couple more dollars and an utter lack of responsibility.
        Secondly, no one said the seasons are caused by CO2, the Earth’s axis does that by itself just fine. Clearly, you know nothing about science and can’t even make relevant comparisons to prove your point.

        • So you admit the ‘climate change’, be it warming or cooling, is a natural cycle with only a small possibility of being affected by human behavior. Yet you probably believe that throwing unknown amounts of money at the federal government, a corporatist entity, will solve it? “A couple more dollars” is an extreme underestimation of how much the federal government, and numerous politicians, profit off of this.

          • No I never said that in those words nor did I imply that. I admit that ‘global warming’ is not the correct term. I simply said ‘climate change’ is the correct term and is a real issue. Granted, Earth has experienced natural and cyclical cooling and warming in its history. However, I’m just saying that human pollution and CO2 emissions have exacerbated the warming AND cooling cycles. The planet is already taking in more of the Sun’s energy than it is releasing that I think the damage we’ve done is already irreversible unless we think up a crazy solution to drastically reduce our carbon footprint.
            Also, no, I don’t believe throwing more money at the govt will help. It would if we had an effective govt that actually regulated….anything! And disasters are always opportunities. Someone will always profit from good and bad things thanks to the free market. Most administrations including this one, and its politicians, not all of them though, certainly profit from it but they are only a part of the problem. What about the corporations who profit from little oversight and operate with reckless abandon and are pretty much accountable to no one? Leave them be? Because of ‘freedom’? How naive.

          • That I’ve read as well. If you’re saying thorium reactors would solve all of this, you’re also saying there’s a problem my friend.

          • Yeah, the problem is radiation, and all the UN bastards trying to funnel money out of us for this global warming scam. Thorium has like a 3 billion year half life, or something, meaning its not very radioactive. Its 99% efficient with very little waste, and will shut itself down if temperatures raise too high. No cooling towers are necessary. Makes just enough heat to create steam to drive the turbines.The technology has been around since the 50’s, and there is enough thorium to last hundreds if not thousands of years (meaning its cheap).
            So, no, the problem is not one of Global Warming, but of Global Warmists who want to repurpose other peoples money. The higher issues are one of cheap and plentiful energy, and putting an end to the scarcity meme that Enviro-nazis cling to. It’s about removing any further excuse to tax the working man for socialist pipe dreams.

          • Enviro-nazis? Sorry, did you mean the Knights Templar Order of Global Warming Illuminati Tree Huggers?! B/c if that’s who you meant, whoa, they ARE nuts! Those fckng bastards. If I hide my gold and money in the forest, would that be repurposing my money or making a donation to the Enviro-nazis for Ecotyranny Everywhere Fund?

          • give it up, you’re trying to convince close minded fools to open their minds to possibilities that hannity hasn’t told them are possible, when ocean levels rise to the point where the water is spashing up against their homes they’ll still be saying what an idiot Al gore is. It’s not worth the effort trying to convince these bafoons that climate change is a real thing happening at a rate never before experienced on earth and much of it cause by the activities of man. It’s clear you understand this. Leave it at that

          • I will leave it at that. Thanks for the heads up though. I felt obligated to be provide some commentary that was something other than confusing pollyanna.

        • No shit Sherlock. I guess you didn’t understand my ridiculous metaphor pointing out the real culprit to Earth’s variable temperature swings. But you continue to make the argument that a trace gas is responsible for … what again exactly? The earth is no longer warming. Your proven CO2 ‘Fact’, sir, is a theory. One based on computer models that have failed miserably. You can talk until you’re green in the face, but all that CO2 you’re putting into the atmosphere isn’t going to make the globe any warmer. It will however contribute to the Earth’s ‘Life Cycle’, where plants can take it in to grow and thrive, and in turn give off oxygen for us mammals to survive. In your world, CO2 is a poison. Hahahahaha

          • Oh I see, we don’t need to worry about CO2 b/c the plants need it. Theories are by definition, unfactual! I did not know that thank you for lifting the veil from my eyes. Fck science, yeah!!
            *Slowly walks away. Cue sad Charlie Brown music.*

          • Uhm, you, or your butt buddy said, ‘Global Warming’ was a FACT, not a theory. Maybe Lucy can help you over at her Psych booth for a nickel. Perhaps she can explain how trace gasses are not going to bring the world to an end … but I doubt it.

          • Right. ‘Trace’ gases can in no way be the culprit, you definitely know that, but you’re pretty sure the Fukushima radiation is the worst thing there is. And it very well could be but I’ll only believe that when a reputable source reports on it.
            The ONLY reason you all can’t even comprehend the possibility of climate change is b/c the right has made it a lefty issue. That’s the main reason. Don’t even try to deny it.

        • So where did you get your science degree? How long have you spent in first-hand study of the problem? How much computer programming (and debugging) of computer simulations have you done?
          Oh, you’re just repeating someone else’s BS? Thought so.
          Think about this bit of logic for a few seconds at least:
          We ‘know’ that Global Warm… er… Climate Change is happening because a few people who call themselves scientists cooked up some theories, and backed those theories up with some climate simulations programmed (with their human assumptions) into a computer. Which all (because it gets attention) predict dire consequences 5 or 10 years down the line if we don’t give a banker some money right now. RIGHT NOW!
          Well, if these simulations of the earth’s climate are so accurate, how come our day-to-day weather forcasts aren’t accurate worth a damn more than 3-4 days out? Wouldn’t accurate simulations of the earth’s weather be very valuable for such a purpose? Wouldn’t that technology get commercialized quick? Sold to every TV and Radio station on the planet?
          Since they’re not accurate more than a week out, everything derived from them is BS for the purposes of backing up public policy decisions. They’re automated thought experiments and nothing more.
          The truth is that mankind (including scientists) still has little to no understanding of how the Earth’s weather works. Hell, we don’t even really know how tornadoes form. Or how lightening propagates from the ionosphere down to the surface of the Earth. Much less how Ice or Warming Ages actually come about. All we have is theories and guesswork that are treated as unassailable dogma.
          So why should we give a banker money, and potentially make things worse with climate engineering projects, based on some unverifiable theories? Why not focus on REAL, known problems like Fukushima or the legacy of the Gulf oil spill? There’s real environmental problems all around us, but since a banker can’t profit from them, they might as well not exist.

          • I do not have a science degree but that doesn’t mean I can’t have a rational discussion about climate change or speak knowledgeably about it. Most of what anyone ever says has been said by someone else. That is how knowledge is transferred.
            Climate change is not backed up by just computer simulations. The evidence is there. The observations have been recorded and they’re still being recorded. Computer simulations give us a model of what is likely to happen. Forecasting global climate change is entirely different than forecasting localized weather. We need quantum computers to get to the level of accuracy you’re talking about. And still, these quantum models can be wrong, but they provide a guide as to what can happen to a high degree of accuracy. As of now, they are our best tools. Just b/c they do not do exactly what we expect or hope doesn’t mean they are entirely useless. Unless you have any better alternatives to discern what is actually going on, I will stick with the best tools we have.
            I will grant you we do not understand a lot about Mother Nature but that doesn’t mean we throw away theories, which are, by the way, rooted in observations that give us the ability to make predictions. Theories are not equivalent to guesswork. Concepts like gravity and evolution are theories but we know enough about both, with a great degree of certainty, about how each works and predict what can or will happen. These theories are verifiable.
            Just b/c a model is not accurate more than a week out, you disprove it entirely? Great scientific method you have there. All I’m saying is I trust the evidence. And I agree that REAL problems won’t be getting any real solutions any time soon if there is no incentive.
            I don’t know enough about Fukushima or radiation to say that it has a large environmental impact. Of course, reports that hundreds of tons of contaminated water polluting our oceans is certainly something to investigate and must have some sort of impact. But just b/c the amount of water is shocking, you cannot conclude that its environmental impact is large or that it is the main culprit. That line of reasoning is faulty. The dead zones in the Pacific that have been attributed to Fukushima could also be attributed to climate change. To pinpoint the cause of these dead zones to Fukushima I think is premature unless the evidence is there to support it. I am definitely surprised it hasn’t received more global attention.

          • Stop working yourself into a lather mate. No amount of blather will change the fact that the climate changes and the causes are many – CO2 being one of the more insignificant causes

          • I’m not a professional scientist either, although I have known and worked with enough of them to know how their ‘business’ works. I’m also a computer programmer who specializes in information visualization.
            Yes, both of us have to rely to some extent on the words of others when discussing this topic. But don’t mistake a meme or a marketing slogan for actual knowledge. We can read a report, listen to a lecture, or watch a presentation. But unless we dig down, learn the lowest-level facts available, seek out dissenting opinions, and consider the money/political interests involved, we’re nothing more than parrots spitting out talking points written by a marketing agency.
            Climate change is real. It’s been happening for billions of years, and it will keep happening long after our species is dead and gone. We have measurements of these historical temperatures, which we THINK are accurate. But we have to be skeptical even of the raw data. Because there’s not yet enough of it, from enough different sources, to rule out mistakes, political bias etc.
            Computer simulations are nothing more than a rapidly calculated mathematical model of what we think might happen *IF* all of the assumptions that underpin that model are accurate. ‘Quantum Computing’ doesn’t change that. It’s not even a technology that’s gone beyond a few proof-of-concept tests. Which means that, for most people, it’s just a marketing buzzword. A magic phrase that means nothing. An excuse to hide behind and confuse skeptics.
            In fact, we have all the computing power required, right now, to calculate an accurate global climate model. What we don’t have is the proper inputs to that model. Without proper starting inputs, no computer is going to give you an accurate calculation of anything. Faulty thinking and insufficient data is the problem, not a lack of processing power.
            Now, you do have to start somewhere, and you’re right that these are currently the best tools that we have to try and understand how the climate works. But if a particular model doesn’t even have the ability to predict the weather to 95% accuracy 14 days out, how can it possibly be considered accurate enough to base wide-ranging political decisions on? Based on scary things that *might* happen 5, 10, or 20 years down the line?
            Answer: They aren’t accurate enough. It’s all an elaborate fantasy.
            Most of these models weren’t built to properly assess the state of the climate. They were built as tools to convince the public (via flashy doomsday scenarios) to support an array of taxes and ‘carbon credits’. Because those can be used to prop up and increase the profits of the banking sector and the big corporations that will be paid to ‘fix’ the ‘problem’ they created.
            “Oh, the climate is still changing? We need more money. Oh, the climate is stable? It’s working! Keep giving us money!”
            See how that works? It’s a perpetual ‘problem’ that we have to keep paying corporations and banks to ‘fix’ forever. When is the problem solved? When do we stop paying? Never.
            I suggest that you stop reading climate change nonsense and start researching Fukushima. It’s a triple-Chernobyl that hasn’t stopped for nearly 3 years now. The cores of 3 reactors are out of their containment, are still active, are sinking into the earth, and are contaminating both the local water table AND the Pacific Ocean with huge amounts of radiation.
            Start reading about the real, measurable die-offs of sea life occurring along the American Pacific coast (and nowhere else). Read what’s going on in Monterey Bay right now.
            Then ask yourself a question: What is the simplest answer?
            1) These die-off are due to ‘climate change’. An abstraction that no 2 climate change scientists can agree on the effects/timetable of?
            Or…
            2) These die-offs are due to radioactive and/or chemical contamination caused by the well-known earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear meltdowns that occurred in Japan in March of 2011. Which are all happening along well-known (and computer modeled) Pacific Ocean currents, just as the first physical tsunami debris is finally reaching the Pacific Coast of the US.
            Answer #1 is nonsense that enriches someone. Answer #2 is the most likely, but there’s no money to be made in cleaning up a real mess. So the story is ignored.

      • I guess this makes it ok to just continue spewing co2 and any other man made chemicals into the atmosphere. As long as we keep it under 3-5% what can go wrong? Does anyone understand how thin the atmosphere around our planet is and without a clean air supply we all die. But it’s ok we exhale co2 so it has to be ok to put millions of tons into the atmosphere. Lack of critical thinking in these comments is astounding

  3. ‘Climate Science’ is caused by a CO2 chemical imbalance.
    The victim presents with an obscession attached to the chemical Carbon Dioxide followed by heated discussions, foaming at the mouth and so on.
    Usually, the victim has no other chemicals in their awareness that cause extinction on that ill fated planet, like pesticides, herbicides, and a plethora of their other emissions that they themselves emit there on a daily basis, in spite of the fact that these ‘other’ chemicals and harmful emissions have been extremely sucessfull at eliminating most of the species on that planet at an accelrating rate.
    If the afflicted has a huge chemical imbalance, then the other anthropomorphic emissions aforementioned, and others like their famous depleted Uranium emissions that are vastly more deadly are simply ignored and talking about the weather is pushed psychopathically (as is usual on that planet) to top of the list.
    At least in this field, their famous ‘psychiatry’ could actually be used to measure the degree of Psychopathy using this sciences famous theory about ‘chemical imbalances’ as a tool.

    • Actually my theory is, that the “warmistas” are schizophrenics & hearing in their head Mother Gaia talking. “Global warming” “Global warming” “Global warming” “Global warming”!

  4. DO YOU SEE, we where rigth all along, despite the insane rethoric and insuinasisations, acuated of even murder, to bee Evil, even some have stated that We should be internated and cept in isolate, sensured have I been exposed to for a decade and stil, mrorons, and why should then I be humble, no f…. I will not be humble, I will slamm this into your faces to the day I die.
    To argue against Faith is equally moronic as the fundamentalistic belife in a teaching in Religion(incl the moronic Atheism), thats why AGWistas/carboNazis, is a cult, and havent the slightest credibility to be anything else.
    We dont understand, huh, I have lived long anouf to not even bother waist a chalori, to rise an eyebrow of this kinds of wether conditions, but after 2 decades of mild winters, people simply forgett what a real winther is.
    There is NO where, signs of global warming, the facts of local fluctuations, and since the north american continent is downoing in snow, we in the scandinavians have had a mild winter so far, by the coast line as I live, we dont have snow at all, they the wether ssystems right now, grows in the american cont, and its oath leads it to the north atletic basin, and when they reatch us, its simple mild winterstorms, nothing new, or anything else, its never static, shittheads, its dynamic, and cant be localised and that local is by no means the truth about the system as hole.
    How many times must we write this to people blinded by faith.
    No, boy, the AGW is a lie, and even thoe the facts goes in the opositt directions, and people cant remeber anything, the debate is fruitless and simple waist of time. CO2 is food, and thats it.
    The greates danger we humans face to day isnt CO2, buddyboy, but the killing of Oxygen producing algea/bactieria, this flora, all thoe invisible to idiots and people without basic knowledge on pretty mutch everything, in the Pasific, is so far I can judge, sceary.
    I am not joking.
    Thats what Fukushima is doing, that alone is my ONLY great consern, the reasent wether iant in my minds at all, other than to shuffle snow.
    You stupid shittheads think Trees are vitale, the seas are the sole fundament of everything living, morons.
    Plaction/microflora, is producing aprox 70% of the air we breathl.
    Jupp, why debate with people blinded by faith.
    I ask my self that to.
    peace

  5. Al Gored knows he is full of crap, but his carbon trading firm stands to make him a billionaire, and that is really all that matters to him. Anyone who studied Chemistry II knows that CO2 concentration is a function of temperature and not the other way around. Besides, the number one “warming” gas is actually water vapor, so are we going to tax steam next?

  6. ultimately is there any harm in is? What’s the worst that could happen to people could start living a greener life recycling more using less plastic? Really what is the harm in being more green or helping make the planet a better place.

    • It’s not that we’re against greening up our lifestyles. The concern is what leftist ‘eco-fascists’ look to do with the new-found power of enforcing “green” laws. To them, it’s about control and not about helping the planet.

      • Eco-fascists are an extreme, a minority. Of course there will be greedy people who take advantage of a situation. That is certainly not a good enough reason to not care about pollution and its consequences (ie.Tea Party). Sea levels are rising. China can’t stop producing toxic city blanketing smog. These are things we can control. I doubt ‘eco-fascists’, whatever that even means, factor into either of those.

        • Pollution is not the same as climate change. They’re separate concepts that cannot be used interchangeably. Some pollution has the potential to affect the climate, but most of it just kills things and gives us cancer. Without affecting the weather one bit.

  7. To borrow a line from Bruce Banner in the Avengers, Al Gore’s “brain is a bag full of cats. You can smell crazy on him.”

  8. I’ve heard reports that Al Gore has made 200 million dollars from this scam! C’mon people, wake up and wise up. This whole thing is nothing more than a vote buying scheme for greedy politicians, government control of the people and money. There are many good, very informative books on the subject like “Unstoppable Global Warming” and “Eco-Tyranny”. Do yourself a favor and check them out.

  9. Here in Northern California, we have been having daytime temps running 10-15 degrees above normal for the past couple of weeks. Go figure.

  10. Al is such a rich idiot.
    He proves money doesn’t make you smarter…it makes you more oblivious to the facts because you can afford to be.
    He is actually more “out there” (circling Uranus I believe) about Global Warming since he’s made 10’s of millions talking stupid about it! When you see a privileged child like Al who, has a golden spoon shoved up his ass by his daddy…will never fail. Even when he lies, he succeeds! So, we have a moron who doesn’t know anything and can charge big bucks to idiot audiences who sit there and will listen to a stream of bullshit and lies about nothing…..America, land of the mostly lost.

    • I really don’t get all this vitriol on Gore. Who cares if he’s rich. You care about rich idiots? Care about the Sauds, Dimon, and the Kochs. Where was all this when Bush was president and invaded a country for no fckng reason at all. Obama is no better, for sure, it seems but if you’re going to pretend to be offended by rich idiots then broaden your scope.

  11. Whatever..deny climate change all you want. Summer is in the Southern Hemisphere and Australia is have 120 F plus temps and it was 108 in Rio yesterday.

  12. I say let the Al Gore’s of the world spout all their mobo jumbo, I support their freedom of speech to do so. I however do NOT support government/taxpayer funded environmental studies of any kind. I also do not support tax payer/government funded anything but that is another topic altogether. If there was no money flushed into the climate studies then you would see an exodus of scientists and green technology. It’s all BS anyways.
