Gore Unhinged! Loses it on skeptical claims: ‘It may be volcanoes.’ Bullshit! ‘It may be sun spots.’ Bullshit! ‘It’s not getting warmer.’ Bullshit!’ — Climate Depot Responds!

Former Vice President Al Gore sounded a defeated tone and lamented the utter failure of the man-made global warming movement during a speech to the Aspen Institute in Colorado on August 4, 2011. Gore used multiple curse words in an emotional speech that revealed his deep frustration and all but conceded defeat to global warming skeptics.

Defeated Gore unleashes: ‘It’s no longer acceptable in mixed company, meaning bipartisan company, to use the goddamn word ‘climate’…we cannot possibly come to an agreement on it’ – August 5, 2011Audio highlights here & full audio here.

As Climate Depot has noted, a movement that had Al Gore – one of the most divisive political figures -– as the face of the movement, was bound to fail. And a movement that utilized the scandal ridden United Nations – which is massively distrusted by the American people — as the repository of science, was doomed to fail. The movement Gore helped found, is dying scientifically, politically and economically.

Gore Unhinged! Loses it on skeptical claims: ‘They pay pseudo-scientists to pretend to be scientists to put out the message: ‘This climate thing, it’s nonsense. Man-made CO2 doesn’t trap heat. It may be volcanoes.’ Bullshit! ‘It may be sun spots.’ Bullshit! ‘It’s not getting warmer.’ Bullshit!” Gore exclaimed’

Gore also compared today’s global warming skeptics to the “evil, evil, evil” tobacco promotion campaigns of decades ago.

Climate Depot’s Point-By-Point Rebuttal to Gore’s Highbrow Scientific Arguments:

Gore Claim: ‘It may be volcanoes.’ Bullshit!’

Reality Check: Gore has not been keeping up on the latest data and peer-reviewed studies. Yes, volcanoes can and do have a big impact on global warming. See:

Flashback 2008 Study: ‘Lack of observed [volcanic] dust in atmosphere could be responsible for as much as .18 to .36 degrees F rise (about 1/3rd) in avg. temp since the 1960s’‘Earth’s atmosphere is comparatively free of volcanic dust, and that relatively large amounts of sunlight are being refracted through the Earth’s atmosphere’

New study in PNAS suggests that the volcanic impact on climate may be significantly underestimated

New NASA paper in peer-reviewed Geophysical Research Letters contradicts Kaufmann et al saying it’s volcanoes, not China coal: ‘Observed trend is mainly driven by a series of moderate but increasingly intense volcanic eruptions’


Gore Claim: ‘It may be sun spots.’ Bullshit!’

Reality Check: Gore simply is trapped in
