Hattip and by Aurora of The MidnightSun
Al Gore, the high priest of global warming is not being spoken about so enthusiastically these days. Could it be that some people have discovered he’s not all that? And while those of us not consumed with Gaia, the religion, shake our heads at the gullibility of those of the moonbat persuasion, the more cynical of the world of the Left continue to push for environmental policies which have already taken an economic toll. We’re talking about the jobs and the livelihoods of humans here, people, but somewhere along the line, the Left stopped caring or even the pretense of caring about the working class humans, or any humans at all. If Al Gore is wrong, shouldn’t it follow that maybe, just maybe there are plenty more out there who are wrong as well?
Al Gore no longer gives interviews to the Press except where the interviewer has been carefully pre-selected for his sycophancy and for his lack of elementary knowledge of climate science. Likewise, Gore no longer takes questions from the audience at any public meeting unless he is sure that no one in the audience knows anything of climatology. The interview from which the following list of Gore’s latest scientific errors and exaggerations was compiled appeared in India Today on 17 March 2008.
Error 1: “‘Global warming’ is a planetary emergency. It is a crisis and we have to find ways to come to an agreement to reduce the carbon dioxide.”
The facts: There is no “planetary emergency”. Nor is there a “crisis”. If there is an “emergency” or a “crisis”, it is certainly not caused by “global warming”. The increase in global temperatures between 1980 and 1998, when “global warming” stopped, was only half of the small increase shown in the official temperature records (McKitrick, 2006, 2007 in press). In the decade since 1998 there has been no statistically-significant increase in global temperature (HadCRUt3, 2008; US NCDC, 2008; RSS,2008; UAH MSU, 2008; etc.). In the seven years since early 2001, the trend of global temperature has been downward at a rate equivalent to more than 0.4degrees Celsius (0.75 F) per decade:
Error 2: “Today we the people of this planet would put another 70m tons of global warming-pollution into the earth’s atmosphere.”
The facts: “Global warming pollution” is Gore’s favorite phrase for “carbon dioxide.” However, CO2 is not a pollutant, but a naturally-occurring gas. Together with chlorophyll and sunlight, it is an essential ingredient in photosynthesis and is, accordingly, plant food. The reconstruction of palaeoclimatological CO2 concentrations below, taken from Berner (2001), demonstrates that carbon dioxide concentration today is almost at its lowest level since the Cambrian era 550 million years ago, when there was almost 20 times as much CO2 in the atmosphere as there is today, without any threat to animal or plant life, and without causing the “runaway greenhouse effect” that Gore likes to mention:

Meanwhile, the environmentalist madness goes on, slashing and burning businesses and getting whole countries into billions, trillions of dollars of debt. It’s as if they are deaf and blind, or just plain obtuse.
American Thinker has this to say about the media on global warming news compared with others. You will want to check this out. http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2008/03/american_media_ignores_inconve.html
According to USA Today News, they now know they need to turn up the heat on getting the public support. It seems America’s average citizens are not paying a high enough price, no matter we now are going to pay a tax to the UN. No matter we are nearly bankrupt. No matter good living wage jobs have gone overseas. No matter our expenses have gone through the roof for necessary items. No matter that our ‘free wheeling’ politicians and Hollywood Celebs like to talk it up and fly their jets and just pay a carbon tax. No matter that most of them live far above ‘average Americans’. They still will get us to play along through our children shaming us. They will get us to be as sheep and do ‘what everybody else is doing’ to get a smiley face and play along. Yes, that’s right folks, it seems that the hotels noticed when guests were given a suggestion to reuse the towel for the environment. They did not play along..why they wanted a fresh towel. However, when they said the previous guests did help the environment by reusing their linens, why they complied..It’s like the good ole days of schoolchildren, everybody really wants to be like everyone else. They dress alike, jive alike, and so it goes. So line up for the smiley faces 🙂 they are going to be passing out to everyone who complies. Oh, and don’t forget, your children are watching you use that plastic!
