Open Mouth, Insert Foot… Oh Al Gore

(Dec. 15) — It is an inconvenient time for Al Gore to be fudging numbers on global climate change.

With the specter of the “Climategate” e-mails hanging ominously over the Copenhagen climate change summit, the former vice president told a crowd there on Monday that one scientist had predicted the polar ice cap would have no summer ice in five to seven years.

“These figures are fresh. Some of the models suggest to Dr. Maslowski that there is a 75 percent chance that the entire north polar ice cap, during the summer months, could be completely ice-free within five to seven years,” Gore told the audience.

But the scientist Gore quoted, Dr. Wieslaw Maslowski of the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, Calif., told the Times of London that he never said such a thing.

Look at Gore’s words, ever notice how most, if not all climate change talk centers on ambiguous terms?  Nothing is ever defined in terms that  denote certainty.  Rather  words are used to increase anxiety toward some potential conclusion which may have a chance of occurring one in a trillion times.

Guru Al deludes the adoring climate change zombies with syntax, forgoing truth.
