If anyone needed more proof showing that former US Vice President Al Gore is a pathological serial exaggerator, look no further. He has proven it yet again, this time at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, a location where dozens of world economic leaders have flown with private jets.
The Guardian reports here, quoting Mr Gore:
I think that these extreme weather events which are now a hundred times more common than 30 years ago are really waking people’s awareness all over the world [on climate change], and I think that is a gamechanger.”
This gaffe is even worse than his remark claiming that the core of the earth is 1 million degrees hot. It’s truly embarrassing that a vice president of the United States could say such a dumb thing.
In Gore’s view we can only assume that a 100-fold increase in extreme weather events is what it would take to get policymakers to take real action. The reality, however, is that there has been no detectable increase at all. Thus it all means we are light years away from “the climate crisis” Gore likes to hysterically bellow about.
And let us recall what the last IPCC report concluded on the subject of extreme weather event trends: No data exist showing extreme weather events have become more frequent. That’s from the IPCC itself.
Gore is obviously a very desparate man trying to get attention. He’s beginning to appear like the village marketplace fool.
Now responsible journalists are shaking their heads at Gore’s doozy of an exaggeration.
For example Spiegel science journalist Axel Bojanowski has reacted in a head-shaking way at Gore’s mega-whopper, calling “curious” and sarcastically commenting at Twitter:
Why have there been 5 IPCC reports?
Gore delivers another blow to the global warming science. Let him keep talking.

Quite right. It is the President who gets to make foolish statements about Climate.
“Now responsible journalists are shaking their heads at Gore’s doozy of an exaggeration.”
Is that 1 journalist, or have we found a second ?
“He’s beginning to appear like the village marketplace fool”
As Hultquist commented here yesterday, citing Napoleon, “Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake.” Al Gore is our best Merchant of Doubt and he cannot be impeached in this function. Has he already been in the Vatican? (As far as I remember he said that the earth below us was millions of degrees).
time to put Gore in a straight jacket and thrown in a rubber room
Don’t worry, the real economic leaders are not caring one with:
Sadly, severe climate events SHOULD be increasing. Cooling occurs mainly at the poles. Higher temperature differential between equator and poles equals stronger winds and so on. Gore and co are expecting these extreme weather events. All part of the PLAN. Problem is Mother Nature moves more slowly than the plans of man.
“And let us recall what the last IPCC report concluded on the subject of extreme weather event trends: No data exist showing extreme weather events have become more frequent.”
Could you provide a cite to the WG and Chapter where this IPCC observation appears?
A 10-min. quick search yields:
Any other requests?
Thanks. I wanted to cite that quote, but I could not find it in the reports. I saw many of these other conclusions regarding no support for many specific phenomena — it is helpful to see them compiled in one place.
A pizza and a couple of beers, please!
we haven’t had a single hurricane here in florida for TEN YEARS. but one year we an abnormally high amount. this was explained by global warming heating up the ocean water. if that were true we would have more every year. global warming is bunk. as for al gore, he does not know or care about science. he is a politician. all he cares about in power and money and how to use the global warming fraud to get them. sadly, he has done an excellent job doing so.
“we haven’t had a single hurricane here in florida for TEN YEARS.”
See? Every single day that this EXTREMEly long pause continues is an EXTREME event.
Talking about Davos:
1700 private jets expected to Davos in Switzerland to discuss climate change at World Economic Forum.
