Al Gore, in a desperate attempt to save his wacko climate change/global warming claims in the midst of one of the coldest winters ever, stated:

Science: “the intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment.”

Every winter there are crazy fools who try to claim that colder is caused by warmer. Technically climate ‘change’ is real because the weather is cyclical. But using it as a weapon to force people to an agenda, trying to scare people, is wrong.

The Daily Caller reported,

“Kevin Trenberth, a scientist with the National Center for Atmospheric Research, said “winter storms are a manifestation of winter, not climate change.”

“The Arctic is greatly affected by climate change and it has a feedback effect – but not in winter,” Trenberth told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “It is not a cause but a part of climate change.”

“Such claims make no sense and are inconsistent with observations and the best science,” University of Washington climatologist Cliff Mass said of claims made by Mann and others. “The frequency of cold waves have decreased during the past fifty years, not increased. That alone shows that such claims are baseless.”

“And on a personal note, it is very disappointing that members of my profession are making such obviously bogus claims,” Mass said. “It hurts the science, it hurts the credibility of climate scientists, and weakens our ability to be taken seriously by society.”

Al Gore’s “Inconvenient Truth” Documentary claimed that “global warming would destroy snow from our lives.”  It claimed that coastal cities would be inundated by water from melting ice caps by 2013 – hasn’t happened. That’s not “science,” that’s fear-mongering and not based on fact. His ridiculous claims fueled the agenda of Obama to ratchet down regulations on everything in America, even to naming “climate change” as the number 1 security threat to the nation.

Thank goodness for President Trump, who pulled the plug on that garbage and even withdrew from the Paris Climate Accord.

“The media is intent on featuring every flood, hurricane, drought, tornado, heatwave — and now cold snaps and snowstorms — as proof of ‘global warming,’” said Climate Depot’s Marc Morano, author of “The Politically Incorrect Guide to Climate Change” (Regnery, 2018).

“Never mind that the media used to claim that the polar vortex was a sign of global cooling back in the 1970s,” Mr. Morano said in an email. “Never mind that climate activists warned repeatedly that snow would be a thing of the past due to ‘global warming.’”

It was ignorant of Al Gore and his cronies to push that the sky was falling because of a warming trend in the cycle…or it was an agenda to control and had nothing whatever to do with science. In January of 1892, dandelions bloomed in Pittsburgh parks. On December 31, 2017, there was record heat in Europe. And the East Coast is in the grip of record cold as of this writing.
