The Al Gore /AIT Index returns!

The index is calculated from Dr. Roy Spencer’s UAH Globally Averaged Satellite-Based Tropospheric Temperatures that are released each month.  The GORE LIED graphics department simply whips out a magenta crayon, and marks up Dr. Spencer’s graph to show the temperature change since Al Gore released his fantasy/sci-fi movie, An Inconvenient Truth.

Through February, 2012 globally averaged temperatures have plunged .56°°F (.31°C) since An Inconvenient Truth was released at the Sundance Film Festival on January 24, 2006 – truly an inconvenient truth.

Snowmaggedon notwithstanding, file this volume of the monthly index under “Even a Blind Squirrel (Al Gore) Can Find a Nut Once in a While”.

Each month, upon the release of Dr. Roy Spencer’s UAH Globally Averaged Satellite-Based Temperatures of the Lower Atmosphere, the GORE LIED graphics department takes out a purple crayon, and marks up the good doctor’s graph to show the temperature change Al Gore since Al Gore released his fantasy/sci-fi movie, An Inconvenient Truth:

For the record, through December, 2009, globally averaged temperatures have risen .641°F (.368°C) since An Inconvenient Truth was released at the Sundance Film Festival on January 24, 2006. Despite the rise, this month marks the 40th out of the 48 months since An Inconvenient Truth was released that globally averaged temperatures have been less than they were when AIT was released – truly an inconvenient truth.

So, what’s to explain the spike in temperatures? Not the much hyped “warming in the pipeline“, but the strongest El Niño in a decade.

A letter to Canada’s Financial Post:

There has been one formal debate at the University of Western Ontario between myself, Prof. Graham Smith, and Prof. Gordon McBean, both of the geography deptartment. I myself was on the skeptical side and McBean, as an Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change participant, argued in favour of anthropogenic global warming (AGW).  As with all such debates, the skeptical side won, but did little to alter the prevailing mindset.

Most of my students have seen Gore’s movie at least three times by the time they get to 2nd year university. Until my course, they are unaware of any counter arguments and have not seen any films other than Gore’s, not the Great Global Warming Swindle nor Not Evil Just Wrong. The record was one poor student who had been shown Gore’s film seven times.

The overwhelming mantra remains AGW and the implications of Climategate and the data scandals revealed by the audit activities of Climate Audit and Watts Up With That are dismissed as irrelevancies. It is not possible to overstate the level with which the dogma of AGW is all pervasive and stifling. In 2008, after I gave a talk to alumni dismissing AGW as an eco-myth, I was publicly castigated in the campus newspaper and McBean reacted with a letter (for which he had signed support) calling for censure of both mine and any future contrary perspectives on campus.

My reaction has been to publish my blog, ecomyths, to continue to talk to all groups who do have open minds and to teach ever increasing numbers of undergraduates who vote with their feet and do search out perspectives and different ideologies. My teaching ratings remain the highest in my department and I have received multiple awards for teaching excellence.

The problem is not with inquiring, young minds but with atrophied, closed-minded incumbents of ivory towers (who would never, ever read the Post!).

Graham Smith, professor of geography, University of Western Ontario.

What’s amazing is that even with this absurd level of indoctrination, polls consistently show waning belief in man-made global warming.

AIT Index 12_2009

Each month, upon the release of Dr. Roy Spencer’s UAH Globally Averaged Satellite-Based Temperatures of the Lower Atmosphere, the GORE LIED graphics department takes out a purple crayon, and marks up the good doctor’s graph. We do this to illustrate Al Gore’s personal inconvenient truth, that globally averaged temperatures have gone down since Al Gore released his fantasy/sci-fi movie, An Inconvenient Truth (AIT) at the Sundance Film Festival on January 24, 2006.

For the record, through October, 2009, globally averaged temperatures have risen .230°F (.128°C) since An Inconvenient Truth was released at the Sundance Film Festival on January 24, 2006. The larger trend shows that 39 out of the 48 months since An Inconvenient Truth was released globally averaged temperatures have been less than they were when AIT was released. Truly inconvenient.

Not Evil, Just Wrong filmmaker Phelim McAleer made the media rounds yesterday, including this appearance on Neil Cavuto’s show, Your World.

McAleer is the journalist who asked Al Gore an inconvenient question about the errors in Gore’s science fiction movie, An Inconvenient Truth.

John Fund, writing in The Wall Street Journal comments on Not Evil, Just Wrong filmmaker Phelim McAleer’s encounter with Al Gore which ended with McAleer’s microphone being turned off as McAleer pressed Gore to answer an inconvenient question about the errors in Al Gore’s science fiction movie, An Inconvenient Truth:

Mr. Gore swatted away the question by claiming the judge had found in favor of his film. He also briefly addressed one of the objections to his film by scoffing at claims that polar bears weren’t an endangered species. Mr. McAleer tried to follow up by pointing out that polar bear populations were increasing, but his microphone was quickly cut off. Organizers insisted that several other people were waiting with questions and they had to move on.

In fact, Mr. Gore didn’t answer Mr. McAleer’s question and was wrong on the facts. The British court found that An Inconvenient Truth “is a political film” riddled with scientific errors. The judge also held that requiring the film to be shown in schools would be a violation of law, unless accompanied by “guidance” pointing out its errors. The judge concluded that the claimant who objected to the film “substantially won this case by virtue of my finding that, but for the new guidance note, the film would have been distributed in breach of sections 406 and 407 of the 1996 Education Act.”

As for polar bears, Mr. McAleer was correct: Surveys show their numbers are increasing.

Mr. McAleer, whose film premiers this weekend, says he’s more disappointed in the environmental journalists who give Mr. Gore cover than in the former vice president. Mr. Gore is simply doing what any propagandist with a weak case would do — avoiding serious debate or exchange. To quote the late William F. Buckley, “There is a reason that baloney rejects the grinder.”
