Gore is grossly careless or a barefaced liar

AL Gore has studied the Climategate emails with his typically rigorous eye and dismissed them as mere piffle.

No way did these leaked emails discredit his global warming crusade, he assured Slate magazine.

And you’d trust him, wouldn’t you? Like you trust our own doom-preaching Tim Flannery, for all his false predictions, dodgy memory, vested interests and frequent flying hypocrisy.

Yes, you trust Gore, this Nobel Prize laureate and Oscar winner, when he tells you that the leaked emails from the University of East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit don’t in fact show that the world’s most influential climate scientists used “tricks” to “hide the decline” in temperatures.

You trust him when he also denies that they show this powerful clique of scientists destroying inconvenient data, committing fraud, censoring sceptical scientists and privately admitting to doubts about the warming theory they publicly scream is settled.

No way would Gore cover up such stuff in defending his warmist cause, right?

No way, even if a British judge did rule that his film An Inconvenient Truth contained at least nine very convenient untruths. No way, even if he’s now the first man to reportedly make $1 billion from the global warming scare he did so much to create.

So you would believe Gore when he now gives his word – his considered opinion – that the Climategate emails are “sound and fury signifying nothing”.

As he explained: “I haven’t read all the emails, but the most recent one is more than 10 years old.

“These private exchanges between these scientists do not in any way cause any question about the scientific consensus.”

Huh? Just in case you think that was a mere slip of the tongue, here’s Gore again, dismissing the very idea of warmist scientists hiding data, as the emails actually revealed:

“I think it’s been taken wildly out of context … An email exchange more than 10 years ago including somebody’s opinion that a particular study isn’t any good is one thing, but the fact that the study ended up being included and discussed anyway (in IPCC reports) is a more powerful comment on what the result of the scientific process really is.”

In fact, three times did Gore claim these 4000 Climategate emails and documents – leaked by a whistleblower – were of no account, being a decade old: “What we’re seeing is a set of changes worldwide that just make this discussion over 10-year-old emails kind of silly.” (Four times now: see video above.)

Fact-check time. Let’s see whether Gore’s word is worth a dime.

The truth is that the most recent Climategate email is from November 12, 2009 – just a month ago.

The email in which IPCC leader author Kevin Trenberth privately admits “we cannot account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can’t” is dated October 12, 2009. Only two months ago.

The infamous email sent by CRU chief Phil Jones, ordering four other Climategate scientists to “delete any emails” that sceptics had asked to check, dates from just last year.

THEN there are the damning emails from Australian Climategate scientist Tom Wigley, in which he seems to me to choke on the deceit he’s witnessing. (He now denies this.)

In these emails Wigley privately blasts his colleagues and the IPCC for “dishonest presentations”, rightly suggests a university covered up an apparent fraud by a Climategate scientist, accuses another Climategate scientist of using “very deceptive” evidence, demands to know why dodgy data was used to falsely “prove” recent warming, and warns the Climategate conspiracy that “withholding data is still a hot potato” and “looks like hiding something”.

Every one of those Wigley emails was sent this year, and most within the past two months.

This is not stale correspondence but a lividly fresh scandal with devastating implications.

So now the questions.

How closely did Gore read these emails? Did he actually read any at all?

Was he lying or just grossly mistaken in telling you they were old news of no account?

What else has he got wrong – deliberately or otherwise – while terrifying the world about a warming that actually stopped, or paused, in 2001?

The fact is you have been lied to by many people for a long time, and the media has betrayed you by not holding the liars to account.

Too much is now at stake for us to tolerate the stifling of debate for an instant longer.

    It is not that Gore was cheated by that idiot Bush and the CFR out of being President in 2000. Now y’all trying to ruin his reputation also. This man was way ahead of everybody and his time in regards to global warming. Gore was the lone voice to advise all of the coming catastrophe if we don’t change our ways. He was ridiculed and made out to be an eccentric idiot. Yet all the while he was way ahead of the now proven science.
    Who is laughing now??

  2. Wanderant Says:

    We’re all laughing now….at Gore the idiot who has been exposed as a liar and a cheat.

    We should put him in a LOCKBOX and throw it into a lake….

    Whoever made this blowhard politician an expert in such a highly technical field? How did his education ever prepare him to perform such highly technical analyses? What studies or peer-reviewd papers has he written on the topic? How did growing tobacco or running for political office provide the technical expertise to identify him as a climate expert?

    His involvement in this complicated issue as a corrupt politician who has exponentially increased his own personal wealth on the back of this topic should open anyone’s eyes to his mission: to acquire more personal wealth.

    What’s he doing with all this ill-gotten fortune, anyway- how much has he contributed to charity or environmental causes?
