Global Warming: The Alaskan governor who knew polar bears weren't endangered says the planet isn't either and challenges the oracle of climate change. Al Gore says despite the CRU e-mails, the situation is of the utmost gravity.
In a Dec. 9 Washington Post op-ed, Sarah Palin noted that the Climate-gate e-mails from the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia "reveal that leading climate 'experts' deliberately destroyed records, manipulated data to 'hide the decline' in global temperatures and tried to silence their critics from publishing in peer-reviewed journals."
This did not sit well with Gore. "The entire North Polar ice cap is disappearing before our eyes," he said on MSNBC. "What do they think is happening?" He added: "That is a principle in physics. It's not a question of debate. It's like gravity; it exists."
Palin, called a "denier" by Gore, says she denies nothing, responding on Facebook: "Climate change is like gravity a naturally occurring phenomenon that existed long before, and will exist long after, any governmental attempts to affect it. It is man-caused global warming and Gore's doomsday scenarios that (are) at issue."
So fact-challenged is Gore on the subject that when he criticized Palin's position on global warming, he claimed: "I haven't read all the e-mails, but the most recent one is more than 10 years old. These private exchanges between these scientists do not in any way cause any question about the scientific consensus." Oh, yes they do, Al, and the word is "conspiracy," not "consensus."

Gore..... what a idiot...
C’mon, Sarah. If you take away Al-boy’s Mann-made Glowbull Warming, how’s he gonna pay the huge energy bills in his mansion?
Surely you’re not suggesting he live in a little house like us LITTLE PEOPLE, are you?
Gore is completely unraveling.
There is a God.
Palin handed him his ass. What a joke.
The Alaskan governor who knew polar bears weren't endangered says the planet isn't either and challenges the oracle of climate change.
I’m waiting for Al to say to Sarah “Don’t get snippy with me!”
Palin can kick his fat butt with the absolute FACT that the GLOBE IS COOLING and his whore
“scientists”lied about it and got caught in their own emails covering their lies!!! Global warming is DEAD!!! absolutely DEAD!!! YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS. Thank you JESUS. This is God’s Earth — not these environmental idolators.
DRILL DRILL DRILL baby and MORE NATURAL GAS and where is my new SUV??(no GM communist vehicles). Merry CHRISTX
These papers are the equivalent of the Constantine Donations, which were forgeries that supported papal claims to its territories in central Italy., but were shown to be false in the 15th Century. by philologists.
I think her point is that our activities don’t have nearly as much effect as the “warmists” claim. She knows what a mess can be made from her experience with the Valdez, but pollution is one thing, and what the warmists are saying is another.
I remember when Gore was an old-school Democrat.
“I think Gore is certifiable. Losing the 2000 election must have rattled him emotionally.”
I agree. He was simply an annoying turd before the 2000 election; he’s now an annoying turd with a god-complex. Must be some good drugs he’s sampling there. I’m sure they’re organic.
No wonder Algore wet his pants at the very thought of debating climate change. With anybody.
Catarac sounds an awful lot like caricature. Why don’t you take a little break from posting for a while, you sound like you can use one.
Chalk up yet another win for Gov. Palin. I saw on BOR tonignht that a new polls shows that over 50 percent of people don’t believe in Global Warming and only 38 percent do, that’s great. Gov. Palin’s op/ed will be well received by over half the population, but you wouldn’t know that from the MSM which is trying to paint her as being on the fringe.
Where are the kitties?
You must be a cooling denier.
