Myanmar’s deadly cyclone is global warming’s fault, Gore says. How the heck does he know?

Här kommer ytterligare en intressant artikel av Lorrie Goldstein (Toronto Sun) om mäster hycklaren Al Gore och hans uttalande om cyklonen som drabbade Burma.

Som sagt, liken var fortfarande bokstavligen varma när Al Gore skyndsamt kom rusande med standard förklaring 1 A (Det finns bara en förklaring) – Det var naturligtvis Global Warmings fel (surprise! surprise!).

Och så tackfullt av denne VÄRDIGE vinnare av Nobels fredspris!

(Citat:

”We’re seeing consequences that scientists have long predicted might be associated with continued global warming,” he told National Public Radio in reference to the tragedy.

Gee, wouldn’t it be nice if he could have waited until after they’d finish digging out the bodies, before blaming it on his favourite (only?) subject?

And didn’t climate hysterics just finish telling us that the record and near-record cold and snow experienced in many parts of the world this past winter didn’t disprove man-made global warming?

Didn’t they just insist no single weather event — or one winter’s worth of data — disproves (or proves) global warming?

Actually, they’re right, although that would admittedly be more impressive if these weren’t the same folks who screeched throughout the mild winter of 2006/2007 that that was proof of global warming.

Then again, consistency has never been the strong suit of folks who are seriously into ”climate porn.”

Goreacle’s complicated truth

Myanmar’s deadly cyclone is global warming’s fault, Gore says. How the heck does he know?

By LORRIE GOLDSTEIN, TORONTO SUN

Well, here’s a surprise. Al Gore last week linked the deadly cyclone in Myanmar to global warming.

”We’re seeing consequences that scientists have long predicted might be associated with continued global warming,” he told National Public Radio in reference to the tragedy.

Gee, wouldn’t it be nice if he could have waited until after they’d finish digging out the bodies, before blaming it on his favourite (only?) subject?

And didn’t climate hysterics just finish telling us that the record and near-record cold and snow experienced in many parts of the world this past winter didn’t disprove man-made global warming?

Didn’t they just insist no single weather event — or one winter’s worth of data — disproves (or proves) global warming?

Actually, they’re right, although that would admittedly be more impressive if these weren’t the same folks who screeched throughout the mild winter of 2006/2007 that that was proof of global warming.

Then again, consistency has never been the strong suit of folks who are seriously into ”climate porn.”

Remember how thrilled they were when some climate scientists predicted 2007 would be the ”hottest year” ever — meaning the hottest year in the last 150 or so since we started keeping reliable records — not the hottest in the Earth’s 4.5 billion-year history?

Never mind that 2007 turned out to be the … uh … seventh, fifth or tied for second-hottest year on record, depending on which climate-monitoring agency you believe.

Never mind that many climate scientists say there hasn’t been any global warming since 1998 and a recent study suggests it may have stopped — offset by ocean currents — and won’t resume until after 2015.

The hilarious thing about media reporting of that study suggesting global warming is on hiatus, was all the frantic assurances by ”green” journalists emphasizing that this didn’t disprove man-made global warming, odd, since the scientists who did the research never claimed it did.

Nonetheless, we were patronizingly told, while it might surprise the great unwashed (us) to learn global temperatures aren’t actually rising steadily year after year in lockstep with rising greenhouse gas (GHG) concentrations in the atmosphere, it didn’t surprise climate scientists.

Actually, it didn’t surprise anyone who has done any research on the subject and thus already knows global warming (and cooling) don’t go up (or down) in steadily rising (or falling) lines year after year.

So where did the public get the nutty idea that global temperatures are rising relentlessly year after year in lockstep with rising GHG concentrations? Hmmm?

Gee, could it have been from the Goreacle, who said in his climate porn film An Inconvenient Truth ”there is one relationship that is far more powerful than all the others and it is this: When there is more carbon dixoide, the temperature gets warmer, because it traps more heat from the sun inside”?

Or this: ”In any given year it might look (my italics) like it’s going down, but the overall trend is extremely clear and in recent years it is uninterrupted and it is intensifying. In fact, if you look at the 10 hottest years ever measured in this atmospheric record, they’ve all occurred in the last 14 years and the hottest of all was 2005”?

Actually, that ”atmospheric record” only goes back to 1846 — the blink of an eye in terms of climate change — global temperatures aren’t rising in concert with increasing GHG concentrations at the moment, and, as previously noted, many scientists say 1998, not 2005 was the hottest year ”on record,” suggesting what a relatively new field taking the Earth’s temperature is.

I guess Gore figured he covered all that when he said in his film it was ”very complicated,” without explaining the complications.

From there, Gore used a couple of year’s worth of selective temperature data about summer heat waves and hurricane activity, especially 2005 (Hurricane Katrina) to suggest this was all evidence of man-made global warming.

Actually, while 2005 was the most active year on record for Atlantic hurricanes, 2006 was dramatically quieter, with not one hurricane making landfall in the U.S.

Perhaps Gore will explain all this ”very complicated” stuff in An Inconvenient Truth, Part II.

Then again, perhaps not.
