For all of Al Gore’s alarming rhetoric as he jets around the planet warning about “a true planetary emergency” that leaves the fate of the earth “hanging in the balance” Gore’s blog posts are not only infrequent, but pretty bland (wooden?) as well.  Not today.  Right out of the gate, Gore was mighty cranky about “deniers spreading lies” as he spun the cold and snowy weather to fit his apocalyptic narrative:

With all the climate deniers spreading lies about the climate crisis in the media, it’s vital we arm ourselves with the facts. Thankfully, Repower America put together a great fact sheet explaining the relationship between the climate crisis and extreme weather:

“Fact: Climate change causes more frequent and severe snowstorms
Record snowstorms need two things: temperatures below freezing, and very high humidity. On a planet warmer by a few degrees on average, the Northeast US will still have plenty of days below freezing; the big difference will be warmer seas producing higher levels of moisture in the air — and therefore more severe cold-season storms.”

“Fact: We can expect more extreme weather
Scientists tell us that climate change has already led to more extreme weather in the United States and we can expect stronger hurricanes, more wildfires, heatwaves and droughts, to name a few.”

“Fact: The world is warming at a quickening pace
Weather in one region over days or months should not be confused with climate or the patterns of weather over decades and centuries. And the science is clear here: the last decade was the hottest on record. And to put this year’s weather in perspective, January was warmer than average for the continental United States”

So we are to believe that more snow equals global warming? This, of course, is not the first time this alarmist sleight-of-hand has been attempted, and it’s just as ridiculous now as it was after 1998 when global temperatures began leveling off and falling a bit.  It goes without saying that if this had been an unseasonably warm winter with little snow that it would have been cited as just more evidence that global warming is happening even faster than the models had predicted. But there’s another reason that every type of weather imaginable is indeed evidence of global warming – greed. Gore and his fellow climate lobbyists aren’t just going to stand by and watch as the profits that were almost within their grasp are yanked off of the table via Climategate, Glaciergate et al. Using poker lingo, they are “all in” on this scam, so they don’t have a choice. Want some evidence? Let’s take a walk down memory lane:

This has been posted here before, but it’s well worth taking a look at a re-run. Al Gore at his 2008 TED sermon:

Gore:

“I have a stake in these (showing slides of green companies he’s invested in), so I’ll have disclaimer there”

And then there is Gore’s April, 2009 Congressional testimony.

Gore:

“I’ve been willing to put my money where my mouth is. Do you thing that there is something wrong with being active in business in this country? I’m proud of it! I’m proud of it!”

Yes, I do have a problem with that. Al Gore criticizes the “deniers” for supposedly being funded by Big Oil (this blog is not), and yet his personal investments in Big Green are are to be ignored? That’s hypocrisy.

Furthermore, this is the man who is set to become the world’s first “Carbon Billionaire”, and he’s not going to kiss all that money away without a fight.
