Al Gore Articles Archive

That Al Gore is quite a guy! He takes faked global warming, er, sorry, climate change data, data from Penn State and the University of East Anglia, then wows people with the now discredited Hockey Stick, parlays that into a book, a movie and a sham Academy Award, and then when he’s got the entire world thinking the sky is falling, gets himself a politically-motivated Nobel Peace Prize. All this on something that isn’t even real, pure junk science.

Well, if you dislike Al Gore as much as we do, you’ll enjoy the scores of articles below.

According to Al Gore, the creation of a carbon offset market is the magical solution to all our global warming problems. Create an American market similar to Europe’s and global warming will be halted in its tracks. And if a billion or two extra dollars should happen to end up in the Goracle’s pocket, well, that’s something that just can’t be avoided.


What we need more than a carbon offset market is a bullshit offset market

Just one thing: The European market doesn’t work any better than the crystal ball Gore used to predict global warming.

Reuters has the details:

Carbon offsets neared all-time lows Friday, confirming their status as the world’s worst performing commodity, as slumping demand meets rising supply of the U.N. instrument traded under the Kyoto Protocol.

Rising supply amid slumping demand? This sounds like the United States dollar under Geithner, Bernanke and Obama.

Carbon offsets have fared uniquely badly because a U.N. climate panel continues to print new offsets, regardless of a widening glut in emissions permits in the main demand market, the European Union’s carbon market.

Put the printing presses in high gear. More dollars. More carbon offsets. More opinions from Al Gore. More of everything no one wants.

The Aspen Institute held a media forum and Al Gore showed up to speak. The Goracle put on one of his patented “I’m so angry I could spit” performances and even threw in a few special words to show just how angry he is.


The robot that breathes has developed emotions

The Colorado Independent was there to record them for posterity:

“They pay pseudo-scientists to pretend to be scientists to put out the message: ‘This climate thing, it’s nonsense. Man-made CO2 doesn’t trap heat. It may be volcanoes.’ Bullshit! ‘It may be sun spots.’ Bullshit! ‘It’s not getting warmer.’ Bullshit!” Gore exclaimed.

And he wasn’t done. No, he was just getting warmed up about global warming deniers:

“When you go and talk to any audience about climate, you hear them washing back at you the same crap over and over and over again,” he continued. “There’s no longer a shared reality on an issue like climate even though the very existence of our civilization is threatened. People have no idea! … It’s no longer acceptable in mixed company, meaning bipartisan company, to use the goddamn word climate. It is not acceptable. They have polluted it to the point where we cannot possibly come to an agreement on it.”

What caused Al to get so het up? No one knows for sure, but we can imagine the following scene:

Laurie David is curled up next to the Goracle in bed in their luxurious suite after the speech. Little beads of sweat are forming on her brow. She gives out an involuntary gasp and says, “Oh, Albert. I know I’m just contributing to global warming and that’s against everything we believe in, but it makes me sooooo hot when you talk all manly-like during your speeches.”

And Al smiles and thinks to himself, “Imagine that. I’m doing Larry David’s wife and saving the planet simultaneously. I am a global warming stud.”

Living On Earth is one of those wacky eco-blogs that calls what it does “Sound Journalism for the Whole Planet.” No, seriously, that’s what it says on the website’s masthead.

LOE recently interviewed Maggie Fox, President and CEO of the Climate Reality Project, Al Gore’s latest scam and she came up with something that raised the eyebrows of even an eco-wacko journalist who specializes in sound journalism for the whole planet:


Al Gore doesn't make a good prophet, but he does make a good profit

FOX: I think the notion of Vice President Gore as a divisive figure is a bit of a hoax, just like the people who are denying climate change. It’s a pre-frame, it’s a fabrication that suits those who want to keep the status quo. So if you have a prophet, if you have someone who has woken up to a particular challenge in the world and that person speaks, if that disrupts things, who is going to be and what are the voices going to be that say that person doesn’t have credibility? Those voices that don’t want that change … There are so many more voices clamoring to hear what he has to say that his right to speak and need to speak is more than made clear virtually every day.
YOUNG: Did you just refer to him as a prophet?
FOX: I think he is a prophet on climate change. I think he woke up to this issue in his earliest years, expected as other people learned about it that they would also wake up to its significance … His presumption as a young man was that once you heard the information the world would shift and start getting its act together, and that hasn’t happened.

There must have been an error in the transcript. Based on his history, we’re pretty sure Fox meant to say, “Al Gore expects to make a profit”, not that he is a prophet.

Panic is setting in at Al Gore’s posh seaside mansion near Santa Barbara. Sea levels and public support for the Goracle’s scam have both stubbornly refused to rise as predicted.

We imagine that Laurie David rolled over in bed one morning, looked into the former Vice President’s puffy eyes and whined, “My ex-husband is on television. Why aren’t you on television.”


Al Gore reveals how many squares of toilet paper Laurie David allowed him to use this morning

Environment & Energy Publishing has Gore’s response:

Former Vice President Al Gore today will announce a new 24-hour global campaign aimed at recharging the climate change debate.

Dubbed “24 Hours of Reality,” the Sept. 14-15 event will feature messages from more than 3,000 scientists, celebrities, activists and Gore himself on the dangers of rising global temperatures. Speaking in dozens of countries in every time zone, they will be live-streamed worldwide, and their messages will be translated into several languages.

3,000 scientists in 24 hours? That’s less than 30 seconds per scientist if the idiotic program included nothing but the scientists. But you know it will include hour after hour of desperate pleas for money and plenty of Al Gore facetime. So we estimate that each scientist is going to get about two seconds to present his or her case.

You may say that’s not much time. But it’s actually two seconds more than they’ve ever given any scientists on the other side of the argument.

To launch the 24 Hours of Reality program, Gore renamed his nonprofit advocacy group from the Alliance for Climate Protection to the Climate Reality Project. The daylong live and online event will focus largely on the connection between extreme weather events and rising global temperatures.

It will, of course, ignore the connection between global warming hysteria and the money in Al Gore’s bank account.

Hard to believe, but it was a mere six years ago the Goracle descended from on high to warn mankind that global warming would inevitably lead to more hurricanes and stronger hurricanes.

He foresaw nothing but death and destruction and a little more jingly in his pocket.


Al Gore descended to earth to warn mankind. And to make a few bucks in the process. quotes the Goracle back in 2005:

… the science is extremely clear now, that warmer oceans make the average hurricane stronger, not only makes the winds stronger, but dramatically increases the moisture from the oceans evaporating into the storm – thus magnifying its destructive power – makes the duration, as well as the intensity of the hurricane, stronger.

Last year we had a lot of hurricanes. Last year, Japan set an all-time record for typhoons: ten, the previous record was seven. Last year the science textbooks had to be re-written. They said, “It’s impossible to have a hurricane in the south Atlantic.” We had the first one last year, in Brazil. We had an all-time record last year for tornadoes in the United States, 1,717 – largely because hurricanes spawned tornadoes.

Don’t look now, Al, but Anthony Watts reports that your prediction was about 180 degrees off. Hurricane activity is now near an all-time low.

During the past 6-years since Hurricane Katrina, global tropical cyclone frequency and energy have decreased dramatically, and are currently at near-historical record lows. According to a new peer-reviewed research paper accepted to be published, only 69 tropical storms were observed globally during 2010, the fewest in almost 40-years of reliable records.

Furthermore, when each storm’s intensity and duration were taken into account, the total global tropical cyclone accumulated energy (ACE) was found to have fallen by half to the lowest level since 1977.

Paging Al Gore. Paging Al Gore. The 2011 hurricane season started June 1. Has anyone seen Al Gore lately?

If there were ever three kindred spirits, they would have to be Keith Olbermann, Anthony Weiner and Al Gore. Dickhead, dick, and dickless.

Olbermann, making the rounds of the media to promote the premiere of his new show on Gore’s failed Current TV, responded when Jimmy Fallon asked if Weiner might eventually end up on CNN.


Don't worry, Keith. No one will be listening, no one will be watching.

CBS News reports the former MSNBC host’s supposedly witty riposte:

“Well, you know, I’ve got a nine o’clock show that I am probably going to hire somebody for,” Olbermann told Fallon, referring to the space immediately after his upcoming new show, Countdown with Keith Olbermann on Current TV.
Fallon asked Olbermann if would hire Weiner.

“Eliot Spitzer is doing okay on CNN at eight o’clock,” Olbermann replied with a smile.

Spitzer’s doing OK? Looks like Olbermann is playing as fast and loose with the truth as ever.

Friday, the night that Olbermann uttered these words, Bill O’Reilly had over 3,000,000 viewers. Nancy Grace wrangled in 1,677,000 on HLN. Lawrence O’Donnell attracted 903,000 to MSNBC. And Spitzer drew a mere 541,000.

So now we know what Current considers the benchmark of success: Half the viewers of the number three show in the time slot.

Oh, these wacky religious fanatics and their competing visions of the end of the world as we know it. Whose version of the Rapture is correct? presents the first religious fanatic’s vision of the Rapture:


Two hucksters present their competing visions of the apocalypse

Outside Harold Camping’s Alameda house at 6:01 p.m. on Sunday, very little (save a cloud of shame and regret) hung over the false prophet’s abode where he and his family waited for the rapture. Camping had used numerology and The Bible to make a proclamation that he and his Family Radio followers would be beamed to heaven at 6:00 p.m. on May 21.

CNS News presents the other religious fanatic’s vision:

In his commencement speech at Hamilton College on Sunday, former Vice President Al Gore told the graduates that global warming is “the most serious challenge our civilization has ever faced.”

Far as we’re concerned, one religious wacko is just as bad as another. We vote for “None of the above.”

What are the odds of finding one story that includes Al Gore, Keith Olbermann and Rupert Murdoch? Well, this is your lucky day.

In short, Rupert Murdoch hates Keith Olbermann. Al Gore hired Olbermann to work at Current TV. Murdoch-owned Sky Italia TV dropped Current TV from its programming roster. In Gore’s mind, A equals B and B equals C, therefore A equals C.


Does anyone know how to say "pompous asses" in Italian?

The Guardian UK reports on the Vice President’s paranoia:

He [Gore] added that the decision reflected how News Corporation operated worldwide. “News Corporation is an international conglomerate with an ideological agenda. It seeks political power in every nation they operate. They wield that power to shut down voices that disagree with the agenda of Rupert Murdoch,” Gore said.

The decision, he added, was “a complete shock” but Current TV executives were told “off the record that the decision was taken on News Corp instructions from New York”. The primary reason, he said, was “because Current is launching Keith Olbermann next month”.

Olbermann – who styles himself as a leftwing alternative to the rightwing shock jock journalism of Fox News – worked at rival cable news network MSNBC until he left abruptly in January. This came after he was briefly suspended by MSNBC in November for making donations to three Democratic candidates in the midterm elections without seeking prior approval, in breach of company rules. “Olbermann has often been critical of News Corporation,” Gore added.

It’s always someone else’s fault with liberals. Why can’t Gore just accept that no one in Italy wants to watch an American network that even Americans don’t want to watch?

Al Gore now compares his global warming battle to the civil rights battle, If that’s the case, we can only assume that he pictures himself filling the role of Dr. Martin Luther King, the fiery preacher who moved the masses with his religious loquacity.

saint al gore

Saint Al Gore compares the civil rights battle to his global warming battle has the details of Gore’s historical allusion illusion:

Al Gore told young green energy advocates Friday that progress on global warming must come from a strong grassroots movement that can counter the oil and coal lobbies, which he alleged have “paralyzed” governments.

Gore – who compared action on global warming to the Civil Rights movement – was the keynote speaker at Power Shift 2011, a Washington, D.C. conference attended largely by college students.

“It’s true that governments by and large have been politically paralyzed because the energy companies, the coal companies, the oil companies, the coal-burning utilities, they have spent enormous amounts of money and they have succeeded in many countries in paralyzing the political process,” the former vice president said.

… Gore said the Civil Rights movement was fueled by youth questioning their parents about legal discrimination, and he drew a link to climate change.

“When they could not answer that moral question coming straight from the conscience of young people, that is when the laws began to change,” Gore said. “You need to ask, ‘tell me again why its al right to put 90 million tons of global warming pollution into the atmosphere every 24 hours, 20 percent of it will still be there in 20,000 years.’”

As we recall our 1960s history, the civil rights movement was marked by a series of marches. Seems to us that Gore’s fat, flabby, flaccid body could benefit immensely from some marching.

So it is strictly with Gore’s health in mind that we say, “Hit the road, Al.”

Bad news for Al Gore. The environment has turned hostile for environmentalists at Wal-Mart. Former Gore senior aide Leslie Dach’s attempt to turn the retail giant into a Gore store has succeeded about as well as the Gore presidency.


Imagine an elitist Al Gore acolyte trying to figure out the minds of Wal-Mart customers reports the retail heartbreak:

In July 2006, Dach was installed as the public relations chief for Wal-Mart. He drafted a number of other progressives into the company, seeking to change the company’s way of doing business: its culture, its politics, and most importantly its products.

Out went drab, inexpensive merchandise so dear to low-income Americans. In came upscale organic foods, “green” products, trendy jeans, and political correctness. In other words, Dach sought to expose poor working Americans to the “good life” of the wealthy, environmentally conscious Prius driver.

Turns out green put Wal-Mart in the red:

After suffering seven straight quarters of losses, today the merchandise giant Wal-Mart will announce that it is “going back to basics,” ending its era of high-end organic foods, going “green,” and the remainder of its appeal to the upscale market. Next month the company will launch an “It’s Back” campaign to woo the millions of customers who have fled the store.

Fear not. The Wall Street Journal reports that Wal-Mart’s brief excursion into environmental activism has come to an end and rational retail is back in style:

Starting in May, Wal-Mart shoppers in the U.S. will see signs in stores heralding the return of fishing tackle, bolts of fabric and other ‘heritage’ merchandise that Wal-Mart reduced or cut out altogether as it attempted to spruce up its stores …

Do you think Al Gore has ever set foot in a Wal-Mart?

Al Gore loves ethanol. In fact, on the Al Gore Love-O-Meter, ethanol ranks just ahead of pork ribs and happy ending massages. And while Bill Clinton is equally fond of both guilty pleasures, he has finally figured out that diverting corn to ethanol reduces the amount of corn available for food and drives up prices.

So we’re pretty confident that Gore is not happy with Clinton’s comments. Not happy at all.

al gore

Al Gore tries to get a little chunk of corn-fed pork rib from between his front teeth

The Associated Press has details of Clinton’s corny comments:

Former President Bill Clinton is warning farmers not to use so much corn for ethanol fuel that it raises food prices and causes riots in other countries.

Clinton told farmers and Agriculture Department employees that he believes producing biofuels such as corn-based ethanol is important for reducing U.S. dependence on foreign oil. But he says farmers also should look beyond domestic production and consider the needs of developing countries.

Clinton spoke Thursday at the department’s annual Agricultural Outlook Forum. His foundation has worked to develop agribusiness in African countries such as Malawi and Rwanda.

Al Gore just called to correct this story. He said he likes pork ribs much more than ethanol.

Just when you thought it was impossible for Keith Olbermann to attract an audience smaller than the one he had at MSNBC, he proves you wrong. He’s moving to Al Gore’s unwatched and unwatchable Current TV.


Together again: Keith Olbermann joins Al Gore's unwatched and unwatchable Current TV

The New York Times has the details:

Neither Mr. Olbermann, his representatives, or executives from Current TV would comment on the move, but they did not deny that the channel, which counts former Vice President Al Gore as one of its founders, will become at least one partner in Mr. Olbermann’s future media plans.

One of the people with knowledge of the plans said Mr. Olbermann would have an equity stake in Current TV. The people insisted on anonymity because they were not authorized by their employers to comment in advance of the official announcement. …

Current TV has set up a presentation with advertisers for Wednesday afternoon in Manhattan to announce its future plans. The channel may be betting on Mr. Olbermann to put it on the cable map. The low-rated five-year-old channel needs the help. Targeting young people, it originally subsisted on YouTube-style submissions and video journalists. More recently it started producing and acquiring traditional television series, like repeats of “This American Life.” …

A move to Current TV would challenge Mr. Olbermann’s fans of his MSNBC show — where he drew about a million viewers a night — to follow him to a channel that is considerably less accessible. Current TV is available in only about 60 million homes, and is usually available only on the digital tier of cable television systems, which requires a separate receiver. MSNBC, which is owned by NBC Universal, is available in 85 million homes and is almost always available as a basic cable entry.

We are, of course, television programming experts here at So with all due respect we humbly suggest that Gore and Olbermann team up to do a Hannity & Colmes style show.

Unfortunately, the name Dumb & Dumber has already been taken. How about Pompous & Pompouser?

Al Gore is a lot like Punxsutawney Phil, the groundhog. He disappears every winter and reappears again when it’s nice and warm again and the snow is starting to melt.

Gore may wish he could do something else like Punxsutawney Phil – take this embarrassing 2009 prediction down a hole and bury it. has the details from a mere 13 months ago:

Snow and ice across the planet are melting much faster than anticipated, and the cryosphere – the Earth’s ice and snow cover – is very vulnerable to climate change, finds a new report presented today at the United Nations Climate Summit by former U.S. Vice President Al Gore and Norwegian Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Støre.

Snow cover is diminishing, and glaciers from the Himalayas to the Alps are melting rapidly, with the greatest reductions in the Andes and the Rockies, the report shows.

The study was commissioned by Gore and Støre as they co-chaired the conference Melting Ice: Regional Dramas, Global Wake-Up Call on April 28 in the town of Tromsø in northern Norway. A group of the world’s most knowledgeable climate researchers produced the report, coordinated by the Norwegian Polar Institute.

Your choice is clear, ladies and gentlemen. You can believe Al Gore or you can believe your lyin’ eyes.


Uh-oh, Al. Record snowfall in New York.


Uh-oh, Al. Record snowfall in Paris.


Uh-oh, Al. Summer snowfall in Australia.

Al Gore earned the nickname “The Goracle” for his frightening global warming prognostications. Sea levels were supposed to rise and engulf cities and low-lying regions around the world.

Oops. Never mind.

The American Thinker takes a closer look at predictions vs reality:

Gore, Schwarzenegger, and the IPCC made their mark through their dramatic predictions of catastrophic sea level rise due to increased carbon dioxide in the atmosphere causing global warming. Gore once predicted that sea levels would rise by twenty feet over the century. Last year, Schwarzenegger unveiled a map showing world sea levels rising by 1.5 meters over the next century. In 2001, the IPCC predicted that sea level would rise by three feet over the next century. Their past predictions and the accurate satellite measurements are shown in the chart below:


The actual sea level rise over the last eighteen years is 1.85 inches, which works out to 10.4 inches per century. This is similar to the 20th century’s rise of 8 inches, but much less than the average rise of 4 feet per century for the last 10,000 years as glaciers left by the last ice age continue to melt.

Think of the right hand side of the graph as a cliff in tony Montecito, California. Imagine a lovely estate sitting at the top of that cliff. It belongs to Al Gore.

According to Gore’s predictions, sea levels would suddenly and apocalyptically rise (see the black line) until his hillside estate became ocean front property. Unfortunately for Al, he can still peer over the edge of the abyss and barely see the ocean waaaaaay down there at the bottom of the cliff (see the red line).

Al Gore, real estate genius.

The global warming scam is on life support. And so is Al Gore’s Alliance for Climate Propaganda Protection. has the details:

saint al gore

"Do not burneth me at the stake," Saint Albert of Nashville said, "for that would releaseth too much carbon into the atmosphere."

One of Al Gore’s campaigns to save the planet has scaled back its field operations since climate legislation failed earlier this year in Congress.

The Alliance for Climate Protection was operating in about 25 states at its peak, including Florida, Michigan, Missouri, New Hampshire, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
But the group now has field offices in just seven states.

“We’ve always believed it’s a mobile and nimble operation,” said Sean Sarah, the non-profit group’s spokesman. “We move to areas where it’s most effective. Of course the situation in Congress has changed. So our strategies and tactics have changed along with it.”

The organization’s new strategy is simple: Survive long enough to protect the boss’ investments in global warming nonsense.

After all, the future of the world may not hang in the balance, but the future of Gore’s fortune does.

We love this story. The current United Nations’ Cancun global warming conference is an embarrassing failure. Instead of the world’s leaders gathering as they did last year in Copenhagen, this year’s waste-a-thon attracted nothing but lower level flunkies. People who built their reputations on global warming are now avoiding it like it has herpes.

Oklahoma Senator Jim Inhofe, who has been one of the most vocal critics of the entire global warming scam, is dancing on its grave. He started by doing the Watusi, followed that by doing the Twist, then did the Hully Gully, and finished up with a wild rendition of the Monkey.

Dance, Jimmy, dance. You were right all along and never gave an inch when you were standing out there fighting the good fight all alone.

We have come a long way since the last UN Climate meeting last year when President Obama, Hillary Clinton, Lisa Jackson, Nancy Pelosi, John Kerry and dozens of lawmakers made their way to Copenhagen to tell the world that cap-and-trade was going to pass the United States Senate. Yet the truth was it had no chance of passing. To deliver that message, I traveled to Copenhagen as a one-man truth squad. I was only on the ground for about 2 hours, perhaps the most enjoyable 2 hours of my life, but the message I delivered was clear; under no circumstances will Global Warming Cap and Trade legislation ever pass the United States Senate. The reporters and diplomats didn’t like it. They hated me for telling the truth. But here we are: I was right and they were wrong.

The fact is, nothing is going to happen in Cancun this year and everyone knows it. I couldn’t be happier and poor Al Gore couldn’t be more upset: it has been widely reported that he is “depressed” about Cancun.
But let me be clear: despite our success over the past year, global warming alarmists will continue to push their agenda. For example, some leaders in Cancun are stepping up their attacks on capitalism and United Nations officials are saying they need to do more to “spread the wealth around.” All of this is more of the same.

Remember it was French President Jacques Chirac, who said in 2000 that Kyoto Protocol was the “first component of an authentic global governance.” And Margot Wallstrom, the European Union’s former Environment Commissioner, who said in 2001 that Kyoto is about “trying to create a level playing field for big businesses throughout the world.”

Good work, Senator Inhofe. To paraphrase Barack Obama, “You won.”

We are sad to report the sudden, unexpected demise of the Chicago Climate Exchange.

al gore chicago climate exchange

Al Gore points at the person responsible for the death of the CCX has the obituary:

Global warming-inspired cap and trade has been one of the most stridently debated public policy controversies of the past 15 years. But it is dying a quiet death. In a little reported move, the Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX) announced on Oct. 21 that it will be ending carbon trading — the only purpose for which it was founded — this year.

Although the trading in carbon emissions credits was voluntary, the CCX was intended to be the hub of the mandatory carbon trading established by a cap-and-trade law, like the Waxman-Markey scheme passed by the House in June 2009.

At its founding in November 2000, it was estimated that the size of CCX’s carbon trading market could reach $500 billion. That estimate ballooned over the years to $10 trillion.

In lieu of flowers, please make a contribution to the Al Gore Retirement Fund.

It’s been several weeks since Al Gore was in the news and he must have read about James Cameron’s global warming hypocrisy and felt jealous.

al gore hypocrisy

"I think I'm getting a canker sore," Gore said. "They're caused by global warming, you know." has the latest Gore hypocrisy update:

Recently, Nobel Peace Prize winner Al Gore toured again. Or maybe he does that all the time. This time, he turned up in Gothenburg (Sweden) for the usual alarmist talk. In advance, all distinguished guests were politely advised to – if possible – use any form of public transportation to go to the event, in order to minimize CO2 emissions.

Intriguingly, the Master of World Climate himself arrived in a rental car (with or without driver is unclear), from the airport, and subsequently left the engine running for the entire lecture. That is to say, about one hour. Incidentally, local legislation prohibits – for very good environmental reasons, i e pollution – any car engine running on empty for more than 60 seconds. Fines are severe. As far as I know, he was not fined.

Ahhhh, but if you thought Gore’s global warming hypocrisy was done for the day, you’d be wrong. He was just getting warmed up, so to speak.

After the ceremony in the Norwegian capital Oslo, it is customary that the laureate is invited to the Swedish capital Stockholm, for a cordial visit. The train ride, supposedly the environmental choice according to Mr. Gore, is approximately four hours. However, he opted for the cosier ride with one of the Swedish government aircrafts. As these can, according to the rules, only be used when a cabinet member is on board – and as the Swedish government after a short ceremonial visit – offered to fly him to Frankfurt (Germany) for his flight to the US, you can calculate both the manpower and the fuel used for this grand tour against man’s destruction of the planet.

Take that, James Cameron. Al Gore is still the king of global warming hypocrisy.

Albert Gore, Jr., the so-called Goracle, predicted that global warming would make the record 2005 hurricane season seem like the good ol’ days. Hurricanes, according to Gore, were going to get more powerful and more frequent.

As Florida State University reports, Gore couldn’t have been more wrong:

Update: Current Year-to-Date analysis of Northern Hemisphere and Global Tropical Cyclone Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE) AND Power Dissipation Index (PDI) has fallen even further than during the previous 3-years. The global inactivity is at 33-year lows and historical where Typhoons form in the Western Pacific.

While the North Atlantic has seen 15 tropical storms/hurricanes of various intensity, the Pacific basin as a whole is at historical lows! In the Western North Pacific stretching from Guam to Japan and the Philippines and China, the current ACE value of 48 is the lowest seen since reliable records became available (1945) and is 78% below normal*. The next lowest was an ACE of 78 in 1998. See figure below for visual evidence of the past 40-years of tropical cyclone activity.

Far be it from us to be skeptical, but has even one of Gore’s Inconvenient Truth predictions come true?

Simple fact is, there only one thing right now showing less energy than worldwide hurricanes – Democrat voters.
