Junk Science: Al Gore blames the Burma tragedy on global warming despite growing evidence to the contrary. Could the hype be related to his financial interests?
AL GORE SHAMELESSLY EXPLOITS BURMA'S CASUALTIES TO ADVANCE HIS PER$ONAL AGENDA
BMI: Al Gore Calls Myanmar Cyclone a 'Consequence' of Global WarmingFormer vice president tells NPR's 'Fresh Air' cyclone is example of 'consequences that scientists have long predicted might be associated with continued global warming.'
... Using tragedy to advance an agenda has been a strategy for many global warming activists, and it was just a matter of time before someone found a way to tie the recent Myanmar cyclone to global warming.
Former Vice President Al Gore in an interview on NPR’s May 6 “Fresh Air” broadcast did just that. He was interviewed by “Fresh Air” host Terry Gross about the release of his book, “The Assault on Reason,” in paperback.
“And as we’re talking today, Terry, the death count in Myanmar from the cyclone that hit there yesterday has been rising from 15,000 to way on up there to much higher numbers now being speculated,” Gore said. “And last year a catastrophic storm from last fall hit Bangladesh. The year before, the strongest cyclone in more than 50 years hit China – and we’re seeing consequences that scientists have long predicted might be associated with continued global warming.”
Gore claimed global warming is forcing ocean temperatures to rise, which is causing storms, including cyclones and hurricanes, to intensify.
BOTTOM-LINE: AGW IS BS AND AL GORE IS A SLIMY, GREEDY LYING SACK OF SH*T.
- PROBLEM #1: THE OCEANS ARE NOT GETTING WARMER; (NPR LINK!).
- PROBLEM #2: THE EARTH HAS BEEN COOLING SINCE 2001, AND MAY BE ENTERING A DECADE OF CONTINUOUS COOLING.
- PROBLEM #3: THERE IS NOT A CORRELATION BETWEEN GLOBAL WARMING AND STORMS.
- PROBLEM #4: GORE HAS A HUGE CONFLICT OF INTEREST: HE PROFITS PERSONALLY FROM THE CARBON TRADING SCHEMES HE PROMOTES AS THE ANTIDOTE FOR AGW. (MORE HERE.)
