Al Gore Demands 'Global Warming' TV Meteorologists Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Sun, Jan 29, 2012, 06:29 pm
Green guru, former US Vice President Al Gore, is funding environmental groups that are demanding all local TV weather forecasters broadcast 'climate change' updates to alert viewers on daily greenhouse emissions. Perhaps, warm fronts will soon be labeled as 'carbon footprints high pressure zones.'

The Houston Chronicle reports that, "the fight for hearts and minds when it comes to climate change has moved to a new battleground: your television set."

Al Gore activists have launched a campaign called, 'Forecast the Facts' to blow hot air at television meteorologists who are "deniers" of mainstream climate change science.

According to the Houston Chronicle, "led by several groups, including, the League of conservation Voters, and the Citizens Engagement Lab, the campaign was spurred by recent surveys finding that half or more of TV forecasters hold contrarian climate change views."

Daniel Souweine, director of the Forecast the Facts drive, said, "TV meteorologists have as much, if not more, opportunity to talk to the American public about climate change than anyone."

The latest from NASA suggests we are gone from global warming. So now I guess BIG AL is touting an Ice Age. As usual, BIG AL GORE has his head up there where the sun don't shine. BIG AL is always good for a laugh.

Historically C02 has not been this high in over 15 million years (0ver 393ppm) The last time C02 was this high in the Miocene it was a very different planet climatically- with sea levels 100 feet higher. C02 all during the last 10,000 yrs- up to the start of the Industrial Revolution was at 280ppm. Having a weekly C02 reading seems like common sense.

The global warming hypothesis is rubbish.

In the 1st IPCC report back in the 1990s, they had 2 climate models and 4 scenarios. Now they have dozens of climate models and loads of scenarios and the predictions have got worse rather than better. In order for a hypothesis to become a theory, it needs to produce definite predictions that match obeservations. The science certainly isn't settled which is why Gore et Al. have to engage in politics rather than scientific debate.

Antarctic Sea Ice is more extensive today than it has been since records began:-

The world hasn’t got any warmer since 1998:-

There is no correlation between CO2 emissions and global mean temperature since reliable instrument records were produced:-

Global sea level rise is only 2mm per year:-

UK (country with longest temperature record history) winter’s mean temperature in 2010-11 was the same as it was in 1910-11 and has barely changed in all of the intervening years (select link, choose “Mean Temperature” in “Climate Variable” and “Winter” in “Month/Season/Annual” list boxes:-

Central England Temperature shows a naturally variable climate within a very tight temperature range (+/- 1C) since 1772. We're currently 0.5C above average but on a downward trend.

From an article published by the Wall Street Journal (January 27) and signed by 16 noted scientists:
“Perhaps the most inconvenient fact is the lack of global warming for well over 10 years now. . . . The lack of warming for more than a decade—indeed, the smaller-than-predicted warming over the 22 years since the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) began issuing projections—suggests that computer models have greatly exaggerated how much warming additional CO2 can cause. Faced with this embarrassment, those promoting alarm have shifted their drumbeat from warming to weather extremes, to enable anything unusual that happens in our chaotic climate to be ascribed to CO2.”
