Internet ‘Creator’ Gore’s website crashed by Drudge — Gore now claims ‘increased heavy snowfalls are completely consistent with… man-made global warming’

Former Vice President Al Gore’s website was crashed by Matt Drudge’s website on Tuesday afternoon. Gore’s site was down from approximately 4:30 PM ET until about 6PM ET.

The linked to Gore’s claim that “heavy snowfalls are completely consistent with what they (scientists) have been predicting as a consequence of man-made global warming” at exactly 4:29pm ET.

Gore’s website crashed almost immediately following Drudge’s link. The irony for Gore is that he has touted his role of “creating the Internet.”

“During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet,” Gore said during a March 9, 1999 CNN interview.

Gore has been joined by many proponents of man-made global warming in now claiming that record cold and snow is either “consistent with” or caused by global warming. The problem for Gore and others who make these claims, is they are on record claiming decreasing snow and cold are caused by global warming.

Even more bad news for Al Gore is the fact that his claim that heavy snows being “completely consistent” with “man-made global warming” is being ridiculed by scientists and the claims are at odds with the UN climate panel that Gore shared a 2007 Nobel Prize with.

See: Climate ‘Bible’, the IPCC in 2007 ‘told us that winters would be WARMER and LESS extreme’ — UN IPCC 2007: ‘More warm and fewer cold nights…fewer frost days…fewer cold outbreaks; fewer, shorter, less intense cold spells/cold extremes in winter’

Gore’s claim of snow being “consistent” with global warming is also at odds with is Oscar Winning 2006 film “An Inconvenient Truth.” Gore never once warned of record cold and increasing snowfalls as a consequence of man-made global warming in that film. But Gore has hyped the lack of snow as “evidence” for man-made global warming. See: Flashback 2009:
