Lord Christopher Monckton of Brenchley, chief policy adviser to the Science and Public Policy Institute, told The Daily Caller that since the IPCC is considered the “holy writ” by a majority of global warming alarmists, the IPCC is the place to look to see if predictions sync with data.
“Al Gore is not a scientist … He’s made a lot of money by whipping up scares and frightening children, but he is no longer heeded by anyone who takes this matter seriously. The IPCC is the scientific authority of his side of the case, and it says very plainly you get fewer extreme cold and fewer heavy snow events. That’s what the IPCC says, and if that’s what the IPCC says, then Al Gore has no business trying to say the opposite.”
Which is not to say that the IPCC has a sterling reputation in this issue. It was they that issued the now infamous and totally debunked “hockey stick” graph in 1998. It was also the IPCC that worked hard to “hide the decline” as exposed by the “Climate Gate” emails and documents.
Still, this just shows that Al Gore’s interest in greening seems to be limited greening his bank account, not so much as saving the plan. Gore is just like any other prostitute, he’ll do anything for the right amount of money.
I like this quote because it sums up the difference between climate and weather quite nicely,
“Weather is what we wake up to everyday. Climate is the average of weather over a long period of time … So it makes no sense to try to say that a storm, or storms, or hurricanes are from global warming. You cannot say that because what we have seen through history is that the variability of weather is so enormous that there is no comparison.”
