Poor Al Gore can’t take the heat

Al Gore

The Washington Times rips into the famous Al Gore, he of the warmist persuasion, the alarmist disposition and the iconic, truth-bending book and movie An Inconvenient Truth, for ignoring his long-cultivated good manners and giving vent to a stream of public profanity at sceptical scientists.

It’s clear that the practice of quietly stating the truth and asking pertinent questions does start to unpick the foundations of belief. Poor Al.

Here’s how H. Leighton Steward puts it:

Having already “invented the Internet,” Mr. Gore has moved on to more important things like inventing a new scientific method. Mr. Gore’s pseudo-scientific method must mean politically correct agendas always trump independent peer testing. If your scientific results contradict the politically correct consensus, you are a denier of a higher truth and your proof that his theories are false is bull (to use a more polite version).

Before Mr. Gore’s reliance on make-believe catastrophic climate model results, we were stuck with the good old scientific method, which says if the hypothesis cannot stand up to comparison with real, empirical observations, the hypothesis is false. Albert Einstein championed that test. Mr. Gore is abandoning it now because the test proves his “man-made CO2 is causing global climate change” hypothesis to be false.

Steward goes on to contrast Gore’s apparent horror at climatic changes (brought on, of course, by a wayward humanity) with the self-evident truth that climate has always changed, on all time scales.

Ho, ho, ho.

Sorry, that’s upsetting for Gore, but I find it funny, at all levels.

    The Washington Times has got it for a long time – not so the Washington Post.

    Oops no, I’m thinking of the NY Post has got it a long time (editing function getting a work out again).

  3. This is the audio clip of Gore at the Aspen Institute on climate skeptics

    He uses the “BS” word quite a bit.

    Priceless, definitely one worth bookmarking (maybe even turn it into a ringtone??)

    Definitions……
    Gore……………A bloody mess associated with a Horror Movie.
    HIWTYL………Heads I Win Tails You Lose.
    BS………………Bureaucratic Science.

    The whole mad world of Climate Science is based on the HIWTYL theory of BS.

    We truly live in the age of stupid.
