This is Part 1 of a two-part article on eight inconvenient truths about global warming, a rebuttal of Al Gore’s 2006 film “An Inconvenient Truth.”
“Within the next ten years, the world will reach a point of no return.”
Al Gore uttered the sensationalist claims above 12 years ago, setting the stage for the current international all-out War on Carbon by insisting that our planet is heating up because we foolish, anti-Earth consumers done went and polluted it by driving cars that burn petroleum products.
The former U.S. Vice President of the United States under Bill Clinton claimed he was convinced that all life on Earth would perish in ten years if we continued polluting the atmosphere with fossil fuel emissions.
Fortunately, that didn’t happen and a heated debate is still raging over whether or not our planet is, in fact, heating up, in terms of its averages temperatures? If so, what that might mean to human life on Earth?
In June 2006, Gore released his award-winning film, “An Inconvenient Truth,” in which director Davis Guggenheim “follows Al Gore on the lecture circuit, as the former presidential candidate campaigns to raise public awareness of the dangers of global warming and calls for immediate action to curb its destructive effects on the environment.”
Gore became a rabble-rouser for global warming. In his zeal, as many politicians do, he made up facts along the way. Well, heck, he wasn’t under oath, after all.
Gore was heavily invested in carbon tax stock options, creating a conflict of interest. His alarmist (and false) cries of doom and gloom – which he termed an extinction-level event, no less – continue to sway public opinion with bad science and political rhetoric.
Twelve years later, eight scientific predictions from “An Inconvenient Truth” have proved to be wrong.
- Sea levels are rising at an alarming rate
Yes, sea levels are rising – but no, not at an alarming rate. A study from the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) Global Sea Level Budget Group was published in the journal, Earth System Science Data on August 28, 2018. These dedicated analysts determined that, since 1993, global sea level has been rising by an average 3.1 millimeters (a whopping 1/10 of an inch) per year, with the rise accelerating by 0.1 millimeter per year.
The South Pole is actually gaining ice mass. In October 2015, NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center announced that, based on “new analysis of satellite data, the Antarctic ice sheet showed a net gain of 112 billion tons of ice a year from 1992 to 2001. That net gain slowed to 82 billion tons of ice per year between 2003 and 2008.”
- CO2 is the control knob for temperature
Satellite data show no increase in temperature for nearly 19 years despite a constant increase in CO2 – so we can chuck that conjecture out the window. In fact, the Sun is a much more likely cause for climactic changes here on Earth.
Some scientists are forecasting a mini-Ice Age between 2020 and 2030 when solar cycles will cancel each other out in a phenomenon known as the “Maunder minimum.”
The last Maunder minimum coincided with a mini ice age from 1646 to 1715 which caused temperatures low enough to freeze over the River Thames in London, England.
- Hurricane Katrina was man-made
Maybe. But by HAARP.
In 2014, many people believed that the devastating Hurricane Katrina that flattened and flooded New Orleans was the first to establish a “new normal” for such epic weather events – because of global warming.
Before Katrina, no Cat 3 hurricane had landed on U.S. soil since Hurricane Wilma in October 2005. Then, in October 2016, Hurricane Matthew passed close enough along the southeastern Florida coastline with Cat 4 strength before weakening to Cat 1 as it made landfall in South Carolina. The next year, with Cat 4 winds, Hurricane Irma scoured the Florida Keys before rampaging up the western Gulf Coast of the Sunshine State.
After a long “drought” period with no high-intensity hurricanes, the U.S. was pummeled by three storms of Cat 3 or higher force. Many people have observed that the classified U.S. military program HAARP is manufacturing climate catastrophes as weapons.
- Severe tornadoes are increasing
“The frequency of violent tornadoes fell to a record low in 2017,” according to Carpe Diem.
The Weather Channel (TWC) reported that U.S. tornadoes were near a 13-year low in 2018.
What caused this dip in the number of severe tornadoes in 2018? Here is the scientific explanation given by TWC:
“The reason for the dearth of tornadic activity in 2018 is an unfavorable jet stream pattern, which persisted through most of March and April, when the ingredients for severe weather typically begin to come together.”
Jet stream, you say? Tell us more:
“A southward dip in the jet stream, or upper-level trough of low pressure, persistently set up across the central and eastern states and dug all the way into the Deep South.”
Is there anything else you can add to our understanding of what caused a reduction in the number of devastating tornadoes in 2018?
“Moisture was trapped near the Gulf Coast in that setup, unable to surge northward into the Midwest and Plains. Additionally, that pattern prevented jet stream disturbances from punching out of the Rockies and into the Plains – a common severe weather setup in the spring months.” [emphasis added]
You’ll notice that there was no mention of “global warming” or even “rising temperatures” – instead, tornado incidence is related to what the jet stream is doing that year.
We can thank Al Gore’s capitalistic greed in marketing his propaganda film masterpiece, all laced with pseudo-science and bald-faced lies, for giving us the opportunity to expose the real “inconvenient truths,” that the American people – and the world – are being led astray by the wild and unfounded claims pouring forth from bad scientists who continue to holler the end of the world, despite the facts.
