Al Gore found! JunkScience gets exclusive photos of MIA alarmist

February 24, 2010

Missing global warming alarmist Al Gore was captured today in a pre-dawn raid on his remote tropical island hideout.

The former vice president had been missing since the Copenhagen global warming conference last December, when he erroneously dismissed the Climategate scandal as having to do with e-mails that were 10 years old.

Since Gore was last seen in public, Climategate has been followed by glacier-gate, rainforest-gate, sea-level gate, the resignation of UN climate chief Yvo de Boer, revelations of IPCC chief Rajendra  Pachauri’s financial conflicts-of-interest and admissions by Climategate’s Phil Jones of no global warming since 1995 and the existence of a possibly warmer-than-now Medieval Warm Period.

The exclusive images below show an emaciated Al Gore, badly in need of a haircut.

Gore’s capture was eerily reminiscent of the capture of Imperial Japanese Army Sgt. Shoichi Yokoi, who hid in the jungle for 28 years after the 1944 Battle of Guam.

Echoing Sgt. Yokoi’s famous comment upon his return to Japan in 1972, Gore told his capturers that,

“It is with much embarrassment that I have returned alive.”

Like Sgt. Yokoi, Gore apparently knew that the war was over, but he was too humiliated by defeat to be seen in public.

Sgt. Yokoi became a popular television personality upon his return to Japan and an advocate of austere living. There was no immediate word from Al Gore on whether he planned to follow Sgt. Yokoi’s footsteps in austerity, say, by giving up his Nashville estate (with an indoor swimming pool that costs $600 per month to heat), houseboat, frequent private jet and limousine travel, and lucrative business dealings with the Kleiner Perkins venture capital firm, Generation Investment Management, Google, Apple and Current TV.

But since Gore didn’t much care about his own carbon footprint during those pre-Climategate fanatasy days when “the science was settled and the debate was over,” there’s even less point now in sweating his green hypocrisy.

    Rather than being successful or amusing satire that illuminates a larger truth, the cut and paste photos here serve more as a parallel to the type of “reality” production you guys are constantly engaged in.

    “God is not the author of confusion.” That role was seized by Nobel laureates Al Gore (a divinity school drop-out] and the IPCC.

    In March of 2000, the UK Independent ran this headline, “Snowfalls are now just a thing of the past.”

    “Global warming…is now accepted as a reality by the international community.”

    Dr. David Viner of the now infamous Climatic Research Unit (CRU) [home to Climategate and key scientists behind the IPCC curtain] stated that “within a few years winter snowfall will become ‘a very rare and exciting event.’” [ reminds us of the Himalayan Glaciers that were scheduled by the IPCC to disappear in 2035.]

    “’Children just aren’t going to know what snow is.’”

    Fast forward ten years and the UK Express headline for 23 February blares, “UK Braced For Yet More Snow Storms.”

    “Hope for a respite from the wintry weather were dashed yesterday…”

    Sigh. Where is global warming when you want it?

    Of course, the global warming crowd now tells us that all this snow is a sign! They were right! On his blog for 23 February, Al Gore declares this as “Fact. Climate Change [aka Global Warming] causes more frequent and severe snowstorms.”

    A succinct comment on this conundrum was posted on Andrew Revkin’s blog:

    “23. Eva – February 12th, 2010 – 4:25 pm
    In 1899, Washington DC had 54 inches of snow. We are told that was because there was less CO2 and it was cold. In 2010, Washington DC had 55 inches of snow. We are told that is due to global warming.”

    “Why does the global warming community expect the rest of the world to be as neurotic and confused as they are?”

    Snow or no snow, heat wave or none, artic ice decline or increase—none of these affect this key point: Earth has warmed over the last century and that warming is all within the bounds of natural climate change. As Freeman Dyson observed, “Climate change is part of the normal order of things, and we know it was happening before humans came.”

    How much warming? The guess is something on the order of 0. 7 C since about 1880. [The shenanigans by the CRU ‘Hockey Stick Team’ and at NASA:GISS may require some modification of that insignificant number.]

    So, when NASA puts out some headline like “End of Warmest Decade,” you have to ask two questions. 1) How much warming? [Nothing outside the bounds of natural climate change even if NASA’s figures have been manipulated like they were to make 1998 the warmest year on record over 1934.] and 2) Were you expecting cooler as Earth moves away from the last little ice age? [Never mind that NASA cannot count to ten and that the decade is not over.]

    The second key point is summed up by Dr. John Christy, who served as a lead author on the IPCC. The Professor of Atmospheric Science and Director of the Earth System Science Center at the University of Alabama—Huntsville, stated, “Our ignorance about the climate system is enormous, and policy makers need to know that. This is an extremely complex system, and thinking we can control it is hubris.” [THIS is the most important fact of the whole issue.] Ah, man’s ignorance and hubris–who would have guessed?
