While pushing his Science Fiction propaganda piece, An Inconvenient Truth, Al Gore appeared at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah, on Wednesday, Jan. 25, 2006. At the time, CBS News reported:
The former vice president came to town for the premiere of "An Inconvenient Truth," a documentary chronicling what has become his crusade since losing the 2000 presidential election: Educating the masses that global warming is about to toast our ecology and our way of life.
Gore has been saying it for decades, since a college class in the 1960s convinced him that greenhouse gases from oil, coal and other carbon emissions were trapping the sun's heat in the atmosphere, resulting in a glacial meltdown that could flood much of the planet.Same old stuff that the alarmists have been pushing, year in, year out and as the AGW hoax gets revealed brick by brick, they become shriller and shriller. But how's this for shrill? Al Gore predicted that, unless action was taken, we would reach the point of no return; the tipping point.
And politicians and corporations have been ignoring the issue for decades, to the point that unless drastic measures to reduce greenhouse gases are taken within the next 10 years, the world will reach a point of no return, Gore said.Well, Al, we have passed that point. Why were you so stupid as to mention a decade. Others among the shrill use terms like "at the end of the century" Still stupid, but not as stupid as just a decade.
Have we hit the tipping point? According to SS - UNSkeptical UNScience's trend calculator there has been less than one tenth of a degree of warming (with odd error bars)
And yet, CO2 has risen from about 380ppm to 400 ppm in that period. This can be explained by the Logarithmic effect of CO2 which shows that the first 50ppm does the most warming (Source)
As Bob Carter explained in Taxing Air, the concept of a tipping point is unscientific:
....the extra warming caused by adding carbon dioxide to the atmosphere diminishes in magnitude with increasing gas concentration, less warming is caused by each successive increment in carbon dioxide. Therefore, most of the impact of carbon dioxide on Earth’s global temperature was produced by the first 50 ppm of concentration of the gas in the Earth’s atmosphere, and further increases in concentration beyond that have exercised, and will continue to exercise in future, a diminishing incremental increase in global temperature. The concept of a ‘tipping point’, beyond which global warming accelerates, is not supported by any known science.
So, Al, your theory that CO2 would cause a "tipping point" has been busted. CO2, instead of roasting the planet, has been greening it.
Apologise and give the money back!
