Climate Depot reviews Gore's sequel: 'Stand up and cheer' moment when U.S. exits UN Paris pact - 'Unexpected hero of the film -- Trump!' - 'A tour de force' to see U.S. exit UN Paris pact.
'Who would have thought that a film that featured weather disasters and apocalyptic predictions of climate doom would have a happy ending! The ending has a stand up and cheer moment when President Donald Trump announces the U.S. is exiting the UN climate pact.'
'A tour de force to see the U.S. executive branch under Trump returned to a pro science agenda by rejecting UN treaty and EPA climate regulations!
Gore exploits victims of Typhoon Haiyan in Philippines: 'The most single most disgusting moment of the sequel. The viewer cannot help but feel that Gore is shamelessly exploiting the victims and using their pain to score unscientific political points about Typhoon Haiyan.'
Stossel: In a new e-book responding to Gore's film, climate scientist Roy Spencer points out that flooding in "Miami Beach occurs during high tides called 'king tides,' due to the alignment of the Earth, sun and moon. For decades they have been getting worse in low-lying areas of Miami Beach where buildings were being built on reclaimed swampland."
It's typical Al Gore scaremongering: Pick a place that floods every year and portray it as evidence of calamity.
Climatologist Roy Spencer publishes rebuttal to ‘Inconvenient Sequel’ as weekend box office drops by 59%
Mr. Spencer isn’t new to the warming debate — he’s a well-known climate skeptic — but there’s no disputing his credentials: He’s an award-winning former NASA senior scientist for climate studies who continues to work with NASA on the U.S. Science Team.
Huffington Post: “He is a flawed character,” Stephen Lacey, editor-in-chief of the magazine GreenTechMedia, said on his podcast “The Energy Gang” last month. “We’re in an era of backlash against elites, so Gore, a guy who bought a 6,500-square-foot seafront home in California for $8.8 million, and who hangs around with other celebrities who talk big on climate but who live lavish lifestyles, is the perfect target at this point in time.” ...
“Many people out there simply cannot compartmentalize and say, ‘I loathe and detest Al Gore the politician because of his liberal politics, but when he talks about climate change, he’s got a real point,’” Anthony Leiserowitz, director of the Yale Project on Climate Change Communication, told HuffPost. “As a messenger, he makes it too easy for conservatives to reject the entire concept of climate change, let alone the policies that might address it.” But by not addressing his wealth head-on, Gore does little to assuage critics who may not be partisan but read mendacious motives into his climate gospel.
Climatologist Dr. Roy Spencer: 'After viewing Gore’s most recent movie, An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, and after reading the book version of the movie, I was more than a little astounded. The new movie and book are chock-full of bad science, bad policy, and factual errors. So, I was inspired to do something about it. I’d like to announce my new e-book, entitled An Inconvenient Deception: How Al Gore Distorts Climate Science and Energy Policy, now available on Amazon.com.'
E&E News: Former Vice President Al Gore might have reached the Oval Office if Florida's weather had been just a bit warmer on Election Day in 2000, according to a study published this week. Nearly six decades of data show voter turnout slightly rose on warmer election days, and voters were marginally more inclined to back the party already holding the White House when temperatures were higher, according to a paper published in the open-access journal Frontiers in Psychology..."Based on our model, an increase of only 1 degree Celsius ... may have made Al Gore the 43rd United States President instead of George W. Bush, as Gore would have won in Florida," researchers said.
“I’m just a dumb old skeptic — a denier as they call me — who ought to be jailed or put to death,” he says. “I understand how they feel. But you know something? I know I’m right. So I don’t care.”
What about Sacramento’s cap-and-trade measure — passed with GOP help? “Just pure and total embarrassing nonsense,” Coleman says, “And another darn good reason not to live in California. If I have to get a passport to come see my son in Palm Springs in the future, so be it. That state has gotten so silly. Oh my God, I’m so glad I don’t live there.” He calls efforts to reduce carbon dioxide emissions “an insult to the average American family,” whose energy costs already rise $2,500 a year “because of the threat of so-called global warming. And that cap-and-trade will take it up to probably $4,800 a year.”
