Gore's Nobel Peace Prize Getting Cool Reception

The best line out of this article about the facts of global warming is from Dr. William Gray, a hurricane forecast scientist, to meteorology professionals and students at the University of North Carolina:

"We'll look back on all of this in 10 or 15 years and realise how foolish it was."

Considering how the big scare in the 70's and 80's was global cooling and the coming ice age, I'd say Dr. Gray is correct.

ONE of the world's foremost meteorologists has called the theory that helped Al Gore share the Nobel Peace Prize "ridiculous" and the product of "people who don't understand how the atmosphere works".

Dr William Gray, a pioneer in the science of seasonal hurricane forecasts, told a packed lecture hall at the University of North Carolina that humans were not responsible for the warming of the earth.

His comments came on the same day that the Nobel committee honoured Mr Gore for his work in support of the link between humans and global warming.

"We're brainwashing our children," said Dr Gray, 78, a long-time professor at Colorado State University. "They're going to the Gore movie [An Inconvenient Truth] and being fed all this. It's ridiculous."

Dr. Gray also spoke about the pressure meteorologists are getting to talk up the impact of global warming:

He said his beliefs had made him an outsider in popular science.

"It bothers me that my fellow scientists are not speaking out against something they know is wrong," he said. "But they also know that they'd never get any grants if they spoke out. I don't care about grants."

The Lorain Morning Journal also weighs in on Gore's prize:

They just don't make Nobel Prizes the way they used to. That's the feeling we get after hearing that Al Gore was named co-winner of the Nobel Peace Prize yesterday for his global warming alarmism. The other co-winner was the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations group of scientists.

It was easy enough to understand how Hollywood awarded Gore an Oscar for his climate movie ''An Inconvenient Truth.'' The Academy Award judges live in the land of make-believe. But the Nobel is a serious prize and its judges are supposed to do better work than the movie crowd.


Al Gore may have won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007, but so did Yassar Arafat, back in 1994. Just look at today's headlines from the Mideast to see how much peace Arafat produced. That's about what to expect from Gore's efforts in the way of rescuing us from his self-described ''planetary emergency.''

All you have to do is look up at that big ball of light in the sky to figure out we have very little to do with the activity of the earth. Unless some Monty Burns type wants to contruct a sun blocker...

Some of decided to bypass the waiting process and realized it was a colossal hoax perpetrated by a Left-wing fraud years ago.

Dave W:

i would ask of all the lefties that believe in this garbage, where is the concrete proof that humans cause warming, or cooling, or even have any significant impact on the climate of this planet.

No concrete proof can be provided because we don't even understand exactly how the climate even works.

Sure we have theories and ideas etc...but nothing out there can explain how climate works on this planet. Can any lefties tell me how clouds form exactly? Can any lefties out there tell me exactly how much precipitation this planet has recieved over the last 5 years? 10 years? If not then quit trying to predict the future with your liberal-minded fear tactics.

Jeez, hopefully it won't take that long. Around that time, we could be just on the verge of another ice age scare.

That's highly unlikely. China's and other third world countries' emission increases are outstripping our cuts in emissions by far.

There aren't enough Carbon Indulgences in the world to offset what their C02 production is likely to be in 10 years.

This year was the first time that a Chinese smog induced storm was caused in N.America. In a couple years maybe we'll have typhoons and twisters meeting head on on the plains..?
Are there KarbonKult plans in China?

The Gore Nobel is delicious payback to the clintons for 2000. For his entire presidency, bill clinton shamelessly lobbied for the Nobel, seditiously traded our national security for the Nobel. bill clinton hungers for it still. His every move is calculated to curry favor with the Nobel Committee.

Rarely does one taste such delicious irony, such sweet revenge. Now if Gore could only parlay the Prize into a total clinton rout, he would, in fact, save the planet and earn the Prize, albeit retroactively.

Big Dan:

You know I am not a scientist, but i find it pretty telling that in all of gray's writinig on global warming he has not ONE time submitted his work for peer review. Not once.

If he is so confident that global warming is a fraud why not present his work to other scientist to check?

I suppose if you just distrust scientist you could dismiss that. But you are pretty hypocrtical if you then turn to science when you are sick, or in any of its other uses.

I read recently in Discover magazine about a scientist who has studied and done research on cloud formation and the suns effects on it. He points out that the activity of the sun,which has its cycles,can determin the amount of cloud cover we have on the planet. This makes the climate hotter or colder. His research has been shunned by the global warming crowd because it is not included in their calculations. Everything they have is based on Carbon Dioxide and mankinds abuses. Interesting article..wish I could remember what month or who the scientist was at the moment.

Rich, that was probably Henrik Svensmark. He and colleagues are conducting experiments at CERN to validate the cosmic ray hypothesis, which claims cosmic rays create cloud forming units in the troposphere. By this theory, which I believe, the earth's temperature is determined most by cloud cover, determined by cosmic rays, determined by the strength or weakness of the earth's magnetic field, determined by the sun's magnetic field, determined by the wobble of the sun around the center of gravity of the solar system. It has taken so long to figure out this mechanism because it is so Rube Goldbergian.

We cooled from the thirties to the seventies, warmed to the late nineties, have held static since, and are starting to cool. I don't have to prove this. Time will.

Big Dan, it is science that is debunking the huckstering about man's guilt in global warming.
