Transcript: Al Gore Got ‘D’ in ‘Natural Sciences’ at Harvard
Cybercast News Service ^ | 5/24/11

Posted on 05/24/2011 10:43:30 AM PDT by markomalley

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.” But as an undergraduate at Harvard University in the late 1960s, Gore--one of the most prominent spokesmen on climate change today--earned a “D” in Natural Sciences.

Gore’s transcript documents that during his sophomore year at Harvard he earned a "D" in Natural Sciences 6 (Man’s Place in Nature). Also, as a senior at Harvard, he earned a C-plus in Natural Sciences 118.

Gore, along with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007 for his work on global warming.

Gore got a 'D' in 'Natural Sciences' at Harvard

That means he'll fit in just fine with the rest of the global warming professors.

This is what a 'D' from Harvard will get you.

In 2000, when discussing the candidates with a hardcore feminazi, I brought up Algore’s economic failings.

She didn’t care one bit, because Algore “was on the right side of the issues”, by which she meant he was pro-abortion. He also had the “ruling class mindset”, so that countered any actual lack of merit.

We see this with ‘bammers as well. Since he has the ruling class mindset, he is superior, regardless of evidence to the contrary.

He DID get an A+ in “Unnatural” Science. I think he went on for a Ph.D. in Historical Pseudoclimatology.

It sounds like it was one of those bird courses that they don’t let science majors take. The ones where no scary math is involved.

For all of Gore's later fascination with science and technology, he often struggled academically in those subjects. The political champion of the natural world received that sophomore D in Natural Sciences 6 (Man's Place in Nature) and then got a C-plus in Natural Sciences 118 his senior year. The self-proclaimed inventor of the Internet avoided all courses in mathematics and logic throughout college, despite his outstanding score on the math portion of the SAT. As was the case with many of his classmates, his high school math grades had dropped from A's to C's as he advanced from trigonometry to calculus in his senior year.

When John C. Davis, a retired teacher and assistant headmaster at St. Albans, was recently shown his illustrious former pupil's college board achievement test scores, he inspected them closely with a magnifier and shook his head, chuckling quietly at the science results.

"Four eighty-eight! Terrible" Davis declared upon inspecting the future vice president's 488 score (out of a possible 800) in physics.

"Hmmmm. Chemistry. Five-nineteen. He didn't do too well in chemistry."

Glad to see that the ManBearPig is making progress.

He now gets an F (absolute zero) in Natural Science.

But he got an A in Elmer Gantry Screaming and Sweating 101. He also did very well in Advamced Snake Oil Salesman.

Plus, as a woman, my take is that he wouldn’t ever come close to an A or a B in sex. C minus maybe...YUCK!

Natural Sciences 6 at Harvard is, no doubt, one of those classes specifically created to fulfill the science requirement of liberal arts majors. Like "Rocks for Jocks" or "Is It Raining Today?", these classes are not very challenging. To get a D in a gut like that, you have to concentrate...

To the Goreacle that just means those courses didn’t provide the correct (his) answers.

Of course Gore got terrible grades. Einstein flunked math. Gore is just a man way ahead of his time.

“Einstein flunked math.”

I can't let that one go by. It's an enduring myth (like the one about Sarah Palin seeing Russia from her doorstep). Actually, Einstein was actually very advanced in math.

Next you are going to tell me Gore and Tipper were not the couple that Eric Segal’s Love Story was based on?

They just didn’t understand Al. He never lets the facts get in the way of new theories.

Actually, Einstein was actually very advanced in math.

Einstein shucked math in college. He had mastered integral and differential calculus by age 15, but found college math boring and irrelevant. One of his math professors, Minkowski, blocked his appointment to a teaching position at his alma mater, Uni Zurich. Einstein more or less did not attend Minkowski's lectures and would have gotten an F if that's how European universities graded. (Students take general exams, not course specific.)

Minkowski later became one of Einstein's greatest promoters, but he was amazed such an indifferent student became such a fine physicist. Einstein himself admitted that he did not think that higher mathematics would be useful to a theoretical physicist. Actually, the mathematics of special relativity are not very daunting, unknown to Einstein, Poincare and Lorentz had already worked it out. They differed from Einstein in that they were unable to abandon the concept of absolute time and space.

General relativity is another matter altogether. Einstein realized that he needed to learn non-Euclidean geometry to make it work. He actually consulted David Hilbert for help with some problems in non-Euclidean geometry shortly before he published GR and Hilbert published his results before Einstein. The Nazis later latched on to this to claim that General Relativity (when they were not denouncing it as "Jewish Science") was actually discovered by an 'Aryan'. The ever gracious, pious and generous Hilbert said that in Goettingen, every schoolboy knows four-dimensional non-Euclidean geometry, but Relativity was Einstein's discovery alone.

Sorry man-bear-pig. We don’t take anything you say seriously anymore. Try a new lie.

98% of scientists say AGW is BS. The other 2% have carbon credits that they are hoping to get 2 cents on the dollar return on their foolish investment. The rest are government grant addicts. Any remaining are wanting to help promote a totalitarian socialist government that would control your every move because everything causes CO2.

*They just didn’t understand Al. He never lets the facts get in the way of new theories.*

I will not be surprised in the least if Al Gore says that “facts get in the way of science” or if he admonishes grade school children not to listen to facts “because that is how adults trip you up. Listen to me, the facts are not as important as Climate Science!”

"Professor Smith, Natural Sciences 101, Room 3D: Why I believe planets can actually have fevers. I believe each planet has a set temperature and if people abuse their resources on this planet, or maybe the planet doesn't have people, but some kind of humanoid creatures, then that planet can get an influenza which will mean that the planet will get hot, sicken and die. One day I will find a discovery that will bring millions of dollars to me, no, to the world, and I will save this planet. Or else I might one day be President, which my father tells me I could be, every night. OK, back to the subject. I believe you should raise my grade because I have proven herewith that a planet CAN have a fever..."

It’s amazing how much political awards are used so much like music awards today isn’t it? Utter moronic shiet draped in gold rather than taking the easier route and supporting non-shiet.

Gore is a buffoon of the highest order. Still, at least he released his college transcripts. And he maybe didn’t try to rape that masseuse, to boot.
