Winter Storm 2014: On The Coldest Day In America In 20 Years, Here Are Al Gore’s Stupidest Global Warming Quotes


America could actually use some global warming right about now. It is being projected that low temperatures across the Midwest could be 30 to 50 degrees below average on Monday morning. On Sunday, fans that attempted to tailgate before the playoff game between the 49ers and the Packers at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin were discovering that their beers were actually turning to ice before they could drink them. That is cold. But things are going to get really chilly when nightfall arrives. In fact, it is being projected that much of the nation will experience wind chill temperatures of more than 40 degrees below zero, and wind chill temperatures of more than 50 degrees below zero are expected in parts of North Dakota and Minnesota. The weather is expected to be so cold that the governor of Minnesota has actually decided to close public schools statewide on Monday. The last time that happened was back in 1997. The reason why the governor of Minnesota did this is because when temperatures get this low they can literally be life threatening. When wind chill temperatures get down to about 50 below zero, if your skin is exposed you can literally develop frostbite in about five minutes. This is being called the coldest day in America in 20 years, and these cold temperatures have many Americans wondering what ever happened to all of that “global warming” that Al Gore and other “climate scientists” have been warning us about for so many years.

If the planet really is getting significantly warmer, our winters should not be like this. Back in the year 2000, one prominent “climate scientist” boldly declared that future generations of children “just aren’t going to know what snow is.

Oh really?

The truth is that you don’t have to be a “climate scientist” to understand what is happening to the weather. All you need is a little common sense.

Back in September, I warned that this was going to be “an extremely bitterly cold winter“. I wrote another article that warned about how cold this winter would be in early December.

Right now we are witnessing cold temperatures that we have not seen in decades. The following is the way that one meteorologist put it…

“If you’re under 40 (years old), you’ve not seen this stuff before.”

Another meteorologist wanted people to understand just how dangerous this kind of cold weather can be…

“A person not properly dressed could die easily in those conditions.”

To get an idea of just how cold it is up in Minnesota today, just check out the following anecdote that was reported by the BBC

Firemen tackling a blaze in Minneapolis, where temperatures have been below -20C, saw the spray from their hoses turn to ice as it hit the building.

And it is even colder up in Canada. Things are so cold up in Ontario that “frost quakes” have become very common…

While America collectively freaks out over their impending ‘polar vortex’, Canada is changing the game when it comes to cold weather phenomenon as reports of ‘frost quakes’ emerge from around Toronto and Ontario.

Indeed, as temperatures drop overnight to around -4f around the city hundreds of people are being startled by hearing large booms – causing them to think their homes are being broken into or gunshots are being fired.

In fact, they are merely hearing the after-effects of the frost quakes – or cryoseism – which are more commonly found on a glacier in the polar regions.

So are we really experiencing “global warming”?

Of course not.

If anything, things are actually getting colder.

What the United States and Canada are experiencing right now is making global warming alarmists such as Al Gore look quite foolish. The following are 10 of Al Gore’s stupidest global warming quotes…

#1 In 2008, Al Gore boldly declared to a German audience that “the entire North ‘polarized’ cap will disappear in 5 years.” (Needless to say, that did not happen. In fact, the ice cap in the Arctic actually got larger this year.)

#2 “CO2 is the exhaling breath of our civilization, literally. … Changing that pattern requires a scope, a scale, a speed of change that is beyond what we have done in the past.” (Actually, without carbon dioxide life on earth would not exist.)

#3 “The planet has a fever. If your baby has a fever, you go to the doctor. If the doctor says you need to intervene here, you don’t say, ‘Well, I read a science fiction novel that told me it’s not a problem.’ If the crib’s on fire, you don’t speculate that the baby is flame retardant. You take action.” (It sounds like what Al Gore really needs is more cowbell.)

#4 During a speech at NYU Law School in 2006, Al Gore made the following statement: “Many scientists are now warning that we are moving closer to several “tipping points” that could — within as little as 10 years — make it impossible for us to avoid irretrievable damage to the planet’s habitability for human civilization.”

#5 “Here is the truth: The Earth is round; Saddam Hussein did not attack us on 9/11; Elvis is dead; Obama was born in the United States; and the climate crisis is real.”

#6 “The interior of the earth is extremely hot – several million degrees.” (It actually peaks out at about 11,000 degrees.)

#7 “There is an air of unreality in debating these arcane points when the world is changing in such dramatic ways right in front of our eyes because of global warming.”

#8 “It would be an enormous relief if the recent attacks on the science of global warming actually indicated that we do not face an unimaginable calamity requiring large-scale, preventive measures to protect human civilization as we know it.”

#9 “The survival of the United States of America as we know it is at risk. And even more — if more should be required — the future of human civilization is at stake.”

#10 “We ought to approach this challenge [of global warming] with a sense of profound joy and gratitude: that we are the generation about which, a thousand years from now, philharmonic orchestras and poets and singers will celebrate by saying, they were the ones that found it within themselves to solve this crisis and lay the basis for a bright and optimistic human future.”

As time goes by, the scientific evidence continues to mount. It is becoming painfully evident that the theory of man-made global warming simply is not true. The following is from a recent New American article

Well, 2013 is almost over, and contrary to the alarmist “predictions” by Gore and what critics refer to as his “doomsday cult,” the latest satellite data show that Arctic ice cover has actually expanded 50 percent over 2012 levels. In fact, during October, sea-ice levels grew at the fastest pace since records began in 1979. Experts predict the expansion to continue in the years to come, leaving global-warming alarmists scrambling fiendishly for explanations to save face — and to revive the rapidly melting climate hysteria.

In September, meanwhile, data also showed that sea ice levels in Antarctica had expanded to record levels for the second year in a row. Of course, by now, virtually everyone who has been following news about “global warming” — now more often referred to as “climate change” owing to public-relations concerns — also knows that global temperatures have not risen for some 17 years. The spectacular lack of warming demolished all 73 of the “climate models” used by the United Nations to push its controversial theories.

Sadly, most of the governments of the planet still consider “man-made global warming” to be one of the greatest threats facing us, and the U.S. government is leading the charge. In fact, the U.S. government has been giving other nations billions of dollars to help them cope with “climate change”…

American taxpayers spent $7.45 billion to help developing countries cope with climate change in fiscal years 2010 through 2012, according to a federal government report submitted to the United Nations on a subject that Secretary of State John Kerry described as “a truly life-and-death challenge.”

And it appears that Barack Obama plans to make the fight against global warming a major point of emphasis for the rest of his time in office…

When President Obama leaves office three years from now, the major policy story of his second term — barring some kind of unforeseen invasion — is likely to be climate change. I made this argument at feature length last year, and the evidence continues to mount. Coral Davenport reports today about Secretary of State John Kerry’s “systematic, top-down push to create an agencywide focus on global warming.”

Considering the host of other major problems that this country is facing, it truly is ironic that the federal government is spending so much time and energy fighting a problem that doesn’t even exist.

Speaking of ironic, a team of “climate change scientists” that had recently gone down to the Antarctic to study “global warming” had to be rescued by helicopter when their ship got stranded in the ice…

A group of climate change scientists were rescued by helicopter Jan. 2, after being stranded in the ice since Christmas morning. But the majority of the broadcast networks’ reports about the ice-locked climate researchers never mentioned climate change.

The Russian ship, Akademic Shokalskiy, was stranded in the ice while on a climate change research expedition, yet nearly 98 percent of network news reports about the stranded researchers failed to mention their mission at all. Forty out of 41 stories (97.5 percent) on the network morning and evening news shows since Dec. 25 failed to mention climate change had anything to do with the expedition.

In fact, rather than point out the mission was to find evidence of climate change, the networks often referred to the stranded people as “passengers,” “trackers” and even “tourists,” without a word about climate change or global warming.

Yes, the climate of the earth is changing. Throughout history it has always been changing. Most of that change is due to fluctuations in the gigantic ball of fire that our planet is revolving around.

But the idea that carbon dioxide is going to “destroy the planet” is ludicrous. Without carbon dioxide we would all die.

And the notion that “man-made global warming” is the “greatest threat” that humanity is facing is absolutely laughable.

Sadly, nothing seems to dissuade the true believers. Not even days like today.

    The largest problem here isn't the lies, the hidden truths, or who is right or wrong. The problem is, we are being desensitized to future scientific warnings that actually could be truthful and relevant to everyone on the planet.
    We see it now in our weather forecasting: forecasts of a blizzard that never arrives, estimates of high snowfalls, rains, storms, and tornadoes. We are becoming desensitized as the majority of these 'predictions' (warnings, if you prefer) do not come to pass. Before long, warnings will go unheeded and a true disaster may happen, and thousands of people will be unprepared for an impending tragedy.
    We must implore our scientific communities to either scale back their dire warnings and predictions, or at the least, quantify them with accurate probabilities, holding them as accountable for inaccuracies as much as they profit from the predictions themselves.

    Can't outsmart mother nature.

    Meanwhile, here where it's summer, we have recorded our hottest year on record, and the highest daily temperature in 15 years. It's warm alright...

  • disqus_cSJkcimyEb

    I agree with the article, but the picture has to go...I used that on a marketing piece over 10 years ago!

  • Thermal Reboot

    CO2 represents about 5% of total greenhouse gases on earth. Human activity represents about 3% of CO2. That means all human activity represents 0.15% of total greenhouse gases. With such a tiny number, how is human activity responsible for climate change? Even if all activity ceased any change in temperature would be immeasurable and well within the margin of error.

    • Vince Weaver

      In the simplest of terms: the butterfly effect COULD affect climate change, along with the cumulative effect of other human-caused global problems. Don't get me wrong- I do not believe that global warming is the dire issue that alarmists make it out to be- but neither can we completely ignore that the earth can only restore equilibrium at it's own pace, and the effect we are having on our planet IS growing exponentially. As a species, we've only been doing serious damage to our planet for decades, not centuries.

  • merleliz

    I firmly believe in climate change. But my generation just called it "the weather".
    End sarcasm.
    I'm also sure that humanity has caused damage to the environment and will continue to do so in generations to come. The only way to reverse that damage and be sure we don't cause any more is to eradicate the vast majority of humans and the technology they have created and go back to living in caves. And considering that Al Gore's "carbon footprint" is a lot bigger than most individuals...he should volunteer to be first.

  • ICCC1978

    Yeah! Global warming is Here! Break out the shorts and T-shirts. Starts the grills! We here in Iowa are EXCITED that global warming has finally arrived! Oops! Sub-zero temps is just a little too cold for us. Can someone sent Al Gore to Iowa this week to provide hot air for us- he has plenty to spread around for everyone.

  • Joseph Scubelek

    Gore. & the rest of his stupid bunch in Washington should move to Siberia &take. the rest of Obama flunkies with them.

    • Andrea

      Na, they do much better hanging around the freedom land...enjoying their non-green energy mansions, SUV's, and Al Jazeera ownerships that profit off of oil...na, not hypocritical at all!

      I don't care who has a mansion, as long as they have earned the money to pay for it...I only care when they tell the remaining Americans that they aren't allowed to make a "carbon footprint", assert that not making mythical carbon footprints will "save the planet", invent a false religion that forces Americans to bow to it, and then force the regulations, penalties, high prices and dependence on foreign oil rather than domestic reserves, on all of us.

  • USMC 64-68

    I find humor in the "faith" of those who are worshipers of "The Inconvenient Truth" who regularly mock those who believe in The Way, The Truth and The Life. The church of the Darwinian, Marxist, radical environmental crises bravely soldiers on in the face of the reality of icebreakers frozen in ice, record-breaking cold, etc. Not to worry - their prophets will be able to come up with an answer that's easy enough to swallow along with the kool aid as they celebrate communion.

  • DixieAngel_76

    Re quote #5 I guess if you think 2 out of 5 is good performance then you're doing ok.

  • John Patriot

    I noticed that the commies don't want us to say GLOBAL WARMING anymore; the word is CLIMATE CHANGE now. We could sure use some CLIMATE CHANGE today.

  • disqus_vJ35swo22n

    I have commented previously on this post and I am pleased to see the majority of like minded individuals here! Plain and simple progressive democrats since Woodroe Wilson have consistently steered our country down the wrong path!!! Now you have the Criminal Usurper in the people's house just jacking crap up beyond repair by design! I say by design because no one with any sort of education is THAT STUPID!!! All he has done is prove what kind of Fraud, criminal, racist, communist ( progressive dem) that he really is, break our laws, subvert our constitution, taken federal agencies now under his control that he appointed his commie ilk to run in order to further destroy this country from with in!!! If you don't see this then your either in on it, support it, or you cannot be helped even with coma inducing medication! All he has done is taken the reall problems of this country and made them worse!!! He has totally mismanaged the nation to the point of uncrontrolled hemoraging within his entire scope and then some!!! I challenge anyone to give me one good thing they think he's done and I will give you three that he has done to hurt it if not give also an example of cronyism to why he might be PERCEIVED to have done a marginally, unselfish thing that benefits someone other than himself or his POS partners in crime!!!

    • al92lt1

      Is he related to Woodrow Wilson?

    • disqus_vJ35swo22n

      Maybe his mother was lol!

    • Jude O'Connor

      What roasts me are the 435 in our Congress watching all this happen along with the FBI, NSA, and the military and doing NOTHING.

    • disqus_vJ35swo22n

      I am with you!!! There are a few good men in the House but political pressure from the senate, democratic lying and commie MSM has rendered the few good representatives impotent! All we can do now is educate, vote, every individual get involved and not rely on someone else to do it, support true patriots Like Gen Vallely and Col. West and those that stand with them!!! DHS is hiring SECRET SERVICE now! We don't have money to pay our military what they deserve but we are hiring more people under direct control of the president along with arms and armament? I haven't heard of a pending invasion have you? Our president selling our land to China as economic zones, sure I heard about that! His agenda is so blatant it makes me ill!!!

  • vicki

    Al Gore is an idiot. He is not a scientist yet pretends he is an expert in environmental issues. (Sort of like Michelle Obama is an expert in nutrition.) Al Gore is about Al Gore and lining his pockets with money. He claims he is so worried about the environment yet how much electricity does he use on his very huge house? He flies about the world in his private jet burning how much fuel? I'm sure he isn't driving about in one of these little tin can cars or that his house is very comfortably cooled in hot weather. Al Gore is a hypocrite like all the other liberals...

    • Andrea

      Yeah, good point..Michelle is an expert in nutrition, ha!!

    • Jude O'Connor

      Al still has some convinced he invented the inter net.
