Welcome to Al Gore's Doomsday

By Douglas V. Gibbs

Ten years ago, Al Gore made a bold prediction.  He didn't predict that the Seattle Seahawks would have won a Super Bowl by now (though, that would have been nearly as bold), nor did he see a near perfect season for the Carolina Panthers in his crystal ball.  Former Vice President Al Gore, ten years ago, in his film "An Inconvenient Truth," made the prophetic statement that if humanity didn't take some pretty drastic actions, coastal cities would be partially underwater, a new ice age would be descending upon Europe, and Bruce Jenner would start dressing like a woman and win the Woman of the Year Award.

Okay, I made the last one up, but based on the reality of our planet's situation, it seems like Mr. Gore may have made up the other two.  As the global warming trend has come and gone, not just here, but on Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn, too, the ice around the poles is thicker, the sea levels have actually dropped a teeny bit, and the language used has changed from "global warming" to "climate change" because the Earth didn't follow the predictions of flawed models, and snowy blizzards kept bothering the global warming meetings.

Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh, when Gore first made his prediction about ecological disaster, decided to hold Gore to his words, and put into action a countdown clock.  The time left is less than a month.  With roughly eighteen days to go, Gore’s apocalyptic prediction about the earth as a result of greenhouse emissions has not come to pass.

Gore said that in 2016 the planet would be in “a true planetary emergency.”  Media leftists and political elites swarmed around Gore's snake oil wagon, clamoring to learn more about the doom and gloom the former V.P. was pandering.  People cheered, and cried, and demanded that action be taken, and be taken fast, before we all die from fire and ice.

Quarreling governments, and a high-pollutin' Chinese middle class revolution, has made sure that little action has been taken.  Nonetheless, when the weather is weird, leftists blame "climate change deniers" for standing in the way of government achieving the radical things they need to accomplish to save the planet from its human parasite.

Rush said, ten years ago, "Al Gore says we’ve got ten years. Ten years left to save the planet from a scorching.  Okay, we’re going to start counting. This is January 27th, 2006. We will begin the count, ladies and gentlemen. This is just… You have to love these people — from afar, and from a purely observational point of view.”

Scientists now labeled "deniers" have discovered the models used by global warming hysteria scientists over-projected the warming rates.  CATO scientists Patrick Michaels and Chip Knappenberger claim, “During all periods from 10 years (2006-2015) to 65 (1951-2015) years in length, the observed temperature trend lies in the lower half of the collection of climate model simulations, and for several periods it lies very close (or even below) the 2.5th percentile of all the model runs.”

In other words, the liberal leftists fudged the numbers, manipulated the models, paid off a bunch of now very comfortable leftist scientists, and tried to create a panic when there was no need for one.

Of course, to know the truth, all one has to do is look back into history.  The planet warms and cools in cycles, and if anything, we are cooler than you often see in our past.  After all, I know it's a shocker, but Greenland use to be partially 'green.'  When it comes to warming and cooling, one of the primary factors, some scientists have discovered, is solar storm activity.

I know, it's a shocker that the sun might have anything to do with the planet warming up.
