Al Gore is a big fat liar

No, really:

Al-Gore.jpg
The former US Vice-President, who became an unlikely figurehead for the green movement after narrating the Oscar-winning documentary An Inconvenient Truth, became entangled in a new climate change "spin" row.

Mr Gore, speaking at the Copenhagen climate change summit, stated the latest research showed that the Arctic could be completely ice-free in five years.

In his speech, Mr Gore told the conference: "These figures are fresh. Some of the models suggest to Dr [Wieslav] Maslowski that there is a 75 per cent chance that the entire north polar ice cap, during the summer months, could be completely ice-free within five to seven years."

However, the climatologist whose work Mr Gore was relying upon dropped the former Vice-President in the water with an icy blast.

"It's unclear to me how this figure was arrived at," Dr Maslowski said. "I would never try to estimate likelihood at anything as exact as this."

Mr Gore's office later admitted that the 75 per cent figure was one used by Dr Maslowksi as a "ballpark figure" several years ago in a conversation with Mr Gore.

The embarrassing error cast another shadow over the conference after the controversy over the hacked e-mails from the University of East Anglia's Climate Research Unit, which appeared to suggest that scientists had manipulated data to strengthen their argument that human activities were causing global warming.

The dude's oilier than a Beluga whale.

Who in his right mind takes him seriously? Who?

I suppose Al will next tell the Canadians that they're full of crap and that their statistics of an increase in the polar bear population is built on lies. Al knows, because he gets his polar bear population stats from tree rings.

Algore is not just borrrrrrring; he's a total loser.

He's always been trying to live up to his deceased father's expectations and thought he had surpassed them.

Now Algore has to face the fact that he's built his reputation not on facts but on a footing that's "melting" beneath his feet ... now that's true justice.
