Al Gore Photoshops Hurricanes Into New Book's Cover
Newsbusters.org ^ | 11-19-09 | Noel Sheppard

Posted on 11/19/2009 12:47:26 PM PST by Justaham

The cover of Nobel Laureate Al Gore's new book "Our Choice: A Plan to Solve the Climate Crisis" was intentionally doctored to exaggerate the appearance of hurricanes in the northern hemisphere as well as reduce the amount of ice present in the Arctic.

Maybe even more ominously, Florida was so diminished it's almost totally gone.

As reported by Florida State University hurricane expert Ryan Maue at the website Watts Up With That, the truth was apparently inconvenient for the Global Warmingist-in-Chief (h/t NBer Blonde):

The cover opens and closes half and half - so you only see one hurricane...as in the press release photo or the one on Amazon.

But this is the real picture sequence from the book which I looked at Borders today and took cell-phone pictures, original (before the retouching by some "artist") Note all of the Arctic ice and the size of the Florida Peninsula...

Did Al Gore hire photographers from Reuters?

Funny how all those hurricanes depicted on the cover seem to have no affect on the clouds in their vacinity.

I want to start a community organization to take all of Al Gores’s money - empty his bank accounts and sell off his assets - to then apply toward our Carbon footprint and to help us be carbon neutral.

The one off Florida is spinning clockwise? I guess a southern hemisphere hurricane is just doing destruction that the northern hemispere hurricanes don't want to do.

About the only thing missing is the Beruit "Bomb Magnet" woman who had many houses destroyed by Israeli bombing.

I'm impressed that any of it is still there. It's highest point is 345 feet above sea level, while Cuba's Pico Turquino with a height of 6476 feet is completely under water along with Costa Rica's 12412 foot high Mount Chirripo. I guess Disney sprung for a two mile high sandbag wall.

Why is Florida still above water when Cuba is covered by it. The Sierra Madre Mountains are 6,000 feet tall, thus the water level should have risen 6,000 feet, leaving the entire US east of the rockies under water and europe too.

Obama needs to thank AlGore for finally getting rid of Gitmo. See AGW does have an upside for some.

Just as the doomsday footage in An Inconvenient Truth and Ted Danson ranting 25 years ago that our oceans would be dead within 20 years were just mere hyperbole.

They LIE. LIE LIE LIE.

He has Panama completely flooded out. Do these idiots have any idea how tall those mountains are. If the sea was tall enough to over top the mountains in Panama the whole Mississippi valley would be flooded. Denver would be beach front property.

Not only are these people ignorant of climate, thermodynamics, and geology. It now turns out they can't read a topographical map.

...as well as reduce the amount of ice present in the Arctic.

What's ironic is that the amount of Arctic ice (sea ice) has absolutely no effect on sea levels, because it's already floating. When it melts, it is exactly the same amount of water as the amount displaced while it is frozen.

Archimedes figured this out over 2,000 years ago, but our current generation of AGW idiots still doesn't understand it.

Looks like North America got a whole lot more brown too. So we are to expect that there will be more storms, more water, and less rain? Which one is it Al, you thinking man you?

He did not even edit the coastlines based on elevation. Ain’t no way Baja california is going to be gone but SE TX and most of LA will be mostly intact.

Florida is shown as above water although Cuba is covered by it because whoever falsified the picture didn’t know anything about sea levels — or hurricanes.

What a laugh this photo is. The storm offshore Florida is rotating backwards.
