Al Gore Op/Ed on nytimes.com

Al seems to have been rather quiet lately, then I ran across this op-ed on nytimes.com

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/02/28/opinion/28gore.html

Its also worth reading this which is linked to in the article:

http://www.giss.nasa.gov/research/news/20100121/

I find it interesting in the Goddard piece they state:

Quote:
"That's the important number to keep in mind," said Gavin Schmidt, another GISS climatologist. "In contrast, the difference between, say, the second and sixth warmest years is trivial since the known uncertainty — or noise — in the temperature measurement is larger than some of the differences between the warmest years."

They put this disclaimer in the article, but have no problem trumpeting that 2009 was definitely the second warmest on record and of course this is the take home message that Al brings up.

Pat Robertson will be a roadie for Marilyn Manson before Al Gore alters his position on global warming. Gore has created an industry behind his particular religion, and has become an extremely wealth man by profiting off the hysteria he creates. He has no option but to keep it up regardless of how much it's debunked, because his business depends on it. Besides, think of the lawuits he'd have.

Yup, Gore has too much on the line to back off from his lame theories. The whole earth could freeze over, and he would still claim it's due to global warming!! lol

I agree that it is blown out of proportion in a lot of cases especially by the media. However do your part in conservation as you see fit therefore you don't need to worry about how envirofriendly you are.

Let us not forget just how smart Mr. Gore really is, after all he DID create the Internet.
