Big Chill Hits Gore Global Warming Movie

- NewsMax - Monday May 22nd, 2006  In just two days, former Vice President Al Gore's blockbuster global warming movie, "An Inconvenient Truth," hits theaters nationwide. But the weather doesn't seem to be cooperating.

Instead of the sweltering late-May temperatures that might give the impression there was something to Gore's claims that the planet is melting, New Yorkers turned up their thermostats Sunday night to fend off an unusual pre-Memorial Day chill.

In the lower Hudson Valley, frost warnings were issued, as the overnight temperature dipped to a chilly 38 degrees Fahrenheit.

The rest of the country was enjoying unseasonably cool weather as well, with Dallas and Atlanta - where the temperature often tops 90 degrees by late-May - coming in 10 degrees below seasonal norms. 

 Chicago's temperature had climbed to just 55 degrees by mid-morning.

Still, the late-spring cold snap has done nothing to chill Mr. Gore's overheated rhetoric.

"We face a planetary emergency," he claimed over the weekend. His film's promotional Web site declares:

"Humanity is sitting on a time bomb. If the vast majority of the world's scientists are right, we have just 10 years to avert a major catastrophe that could send our entire planet's climate system into a tail-spin of epic destruction involving extreme weather, floods, droughts, epidemics and killer heat waves beyond anything we have ever experienced - a catastrophe of our own making."  - NewsMax, Monday May 22nd, 2006

 

 The Al Gore theory of global warming is a scam to promote nuclear power, expand the scope of government, increase academic welfare, tax every bit of energy productive people use, derail third world development and create unearned fortunes via a government-mandated carbon credits market… all based on the bizarre notion that reducing man-made CO2 content from 16 parts per million down to say 12 parts per million is going to counteract the power of the sun.

Yes, P.T., there really is a sucker born every minute.

What's the point of reposting 6-year old news today? And how does this affect our investing?

Ok 5 years to go and we're all dead.  When you see hysterical claims like these you know that no respected scientists were involved. Scientists humbly test hypotheses and suggest follow up experiments to potentially disprove their claims, they don't scare monger. They know that complex systems such as climate cannot be accurately mapped or predicted with any certainty.

leohaas we're all dead real soon since we didn't elect the green party so Steven's trying to tell us to not bother with investing.

Leohaas, 

 Hopefully six year old news will remind you that the scientists Gore spoke for then, were and still are correct in their analysis of CO2's warming impact on climate and it is getting hotter, faster than the conservative predictions made 5 years ago. Your investing should account for the problems and expense that our failure to address climate change will cost you. Ice melting, rainy seasons wetter, dry seasons dryer, etc.

Franky,

"Five years to go and we are all dead" is a hysterical  misinterpreattion of the statement that "we have ten years to avert a major catastrophe", especially when climate scientists are well known for predicting that the problems of climate change are decades off. 

They were overly conservative in their predictions. You should trust the climate scientists they are more honest than Libertarians.

Best wishes,

Steven
