Some of my friends will tell you, quite begrudgingly, that one of my favorite sayings is “Life is a double-edged sword.” It looks like Vice President Al Gore has learned this lesson the hard way.
Gore learned that “An Inconvenient Truth” can cut both ways, as the Oscar-winning, titular head of the global warming scam crowd found out while speaking in Copenhagen just the other day.
While attending the climate change summit, Gore postulated that the Arctic could be completely ice-free in five years.
Gore told the conference: "These figures are fresh. Some of the models suggest to Dr. [Wieslav] Maslowski that there is a 75 percent chance that the entire north polar ice cap, during the summer months, could be completely ice-free within five to seven years."
However, the scientist who Gore was relying on for the data, blasted the former V.P. with an icy wind saying: "It's unclear to me how this figure was arrived at... I would never try to estimate likelihood at anything as exact as this."
Forced to admit that the 75 percent figure he used was nothing more than a “ballpark figure” supposedly used in a conversation he had with Dr. Maslowski several years ago, the embarrassed Gore was in spin mode all the rest of the day, trying to back-pedal on his statement.
Coming on the heels of the latest figures, which shows his new book, Our Choice, has sold only 40,000 copies (On the other hand, Sarah Palin’s book Going Rouge was a best seller before it hit the stands, with over 1 million copies sold), there is serious doubt that the public finds Gore’s opinions very credible.
Coupled with facts now emerging from the hacked emails, showing that global warming groups manipulated data to bolster their argument that says climate change is man-made, this whole global warming conspiracy, which is nothing more than the latest power and money grab, is starting to come apart like a cheap suit.
Stay tuned, sports fans…
