    This Siberian village's thermometer broke last night because of how cold it was. Oymyakon, in the Siberian region of Yakutia, is the coldest inhabited village on Earth. Each winter, it records some of the world's lowest temperatures and the town seems frozen in time. On 14 January, Oymyakon got so cold, its brand new thermometer broke after reaching a mind numbing -62C, reports the Siberian Times. In comparison, the only other places to get this cold or colder are unpopulated areas of Antarctica. But locals have reported temperatures far colder than the official -62C on their properties, thanks to their...

    WASHINGTON — Once considered a long shot among a dozen or more potential running mates for Al Gore, Sen. Richard Durbin has emerged as one of a few serious contenders, Democratic strategists say. Sen. Durbin confirms meeting once and talking twice by telephone in recent weeks with former Secretary of State Warren Christopher, who is conducting the vice-presidential search process for the Gore campaign. "Is he on the list? Yes," says a senior Democratic Party official from the Midwest with close ties to the campaign. "Is he strong? Absolutely." While he once laughed off the veepstakes speculation, Sen. Durbin now...

    Up to 16 inches of snow has fallen on an town in the Sahara desert after a freak winter storm hit the area on Sunday. This is the third time in 37 years that the town of Ain Sefra in Algeria has seen snow cover the red sand dunes of the desert. Snow started falling in the early hours of Sunday morning and it quickly began settling on the sand. While the town saw an inch or two, the sand dunes on its outskirts were covered in snow.

    I see the debate over precisely how it is that manmade climate change will destroy the planet rages on.All we know for sure is that President Trump, lunatic-at-large, is responsible as he withdrew the U.S. from the planet-saving Paris Agreement on climate change. And since consensus has it that we are all going to die perhaps we should spend a little time contemplating the pros and cons of cooling v. warming. The metaphysics alone make my head spin, but better to be prepared.So I give you Robert Frost’s poem to contemplate the possibilities. Fire and IceSome say the world will...

    Former Vice President Al Gore has weighed in on the record cold and snow in the U.S. “It’s bitter cold in parts of the US, but climate scientist Dr. Michael Mann explains that’s exactly what we should expect from the climate crisis,” Gore wrote on January 4 on Twitter. *snip* Gore’s Oscar-winning documentary An Inconvenient Truth did not warn of record cold and increasing snowfalls as a consequence of man-made global warming.

    It’s true -- you are not dreaming. For the first time in 28 years, snow fell on the streets of Tallahassee, Florida during rush hour Wednesday morning. The conditions are cold enough for the snow to form, but videos show it quickly melting as it hits the ground. The National Weather Service measured 0.1” of snow/sleet on their rooftop. Roughly 50 miles of Interstate 10 have been closed in Tallahassee due to snow an ice. In lieu of the traditional salt, the unusual weather has prompted Florida Highway Patrol to lay down sand to melt the ice, according to ABC...

    It’s over killed by the climate advocates like Al Gore, Tom Steyer and any who see themselves as superior to we peasants? For decades the Democrat championed the “little guy”, the blue collar working class and traditional union households. They were awarded many electoral victories as a result. But has that changed? Yes it has… the Democrat party is now the party of the privileged (mostly white) 1%... the richest among us! With the election of Donald Trump they no longer hide or even advocate for the “little guy”. Their new coalition are the outcasts from what was normal society…...

    NINE YEARS AGO THIS MONTH— Al Gore predicted the North Polar Ice Cap would be completely ice free in five years. Gore made the prediction to a German audience in 2008. He told them that “the entire North ‘polarized’ cap will disappear in 5 years.” “Five Years” This wasn’t the only time Gore made his ice-free prediction. Gore’s been predicting this since 2007. According to Al Gore the North Pole should be completely melted by now.

I give you exhibit A, Al Gore’s “Climate Reality Project”. I got this in my inbox this morning.Of course, when you click on that donate button, Al doubles down:Yes, send money to Al Gore to “end the climate crisis”. Yeah, that’s the ticket. He has quite a payroll to support, just look at all the employees here Anybody stupid enough to fall for this, especially on...

    NEW YORK –– Attorney General Janet Reno has decided not to name a special prosecutor to investigate the 1996 fund-raising activities of Vice President Al Gore, The New York Times reported Wednesday. Reno has rejected the recommendation of the head of the Justice Department's campaign finance unit, Robert J. Conrad Jr., which marks the third time that Reno has rejected such a recommendation to investigate Gore, the newspaper said. The Times reported that Conrad was the only prosecutor in the department who thought there would be a need for an independent counsel. The vice president has repeatedly maintained that he...

    **SNIP** The Oscar buzz comes despite pushback from skeptics, led by University of Alabama in Huntsville climatologist Roy Spencer, a former NASA scientist who accused Mr. Gore of attributing natural phenomena to human-caused climate change. In September, Mr. Spencer published an 84-page e-book, “An Inconvenient Deception,” which blasted the film as “bursting with bad science, bad policy, and some outright falsehoods.” “An Inconvenient Truth” was similarly rebuked by skeptics — Danish academic Bjorn Lomborg challenged it in a book and film called “Cool It”—but the movie earned $24 million at the box office, making it the 11th-highest grossing documentary of...

    Former Vice President Al Gore spoke about the dangers of man-made climate change at the Rice University Tudor Fieldhouse on Monday evening. Gore organized his talk around three big questions: whether society must change climate practices, whether it has the ability, and whether it has has the will. Before the talk got underway, Gore found an opportunity to connect with his Houston audience through his role on the executive board of the Doerr Institute for New Leaders. “I guess I’m kind of a Rice Owl now,” Gore said. Gore began the speech with statistics arguing that the world is trending...

Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh on Tuesday. Gore tucked state-specific stats into a two-hour presentation peppered with images of melting roads, collapsing glaciers, flooded cities and other dramatic weather events scientists have linked to climate change. The presentation was part of a Climate Reality Leadership Corps meeting, the 36th in a series in which Gore trains attendees to advocate for changes that could help slow global warming....

This time, it's two more massage therapists bringing the charges. *** The new allegations are said to have taken place at two hotels - one in Beverly Hills in 2007, when Gore was in Hollywood for the Oscars, the other in Tokyo in 2008. *** Molly Hagerty, the Portland victim, has also recently piped up with some new evidence: a pair of stained black pants and the remains of some candy supposedly gobbled by Gore.

    After more than two decades of study I am convinced that life here on Earth has been getting better and better for the billions of we people who make this little blue marble our beloved home. The “tons and tons of carbon we are spewing into the atmosphere every day” as Al Gore puts it are actually a good thing. In his rants that the Earth will become uninhabitable former Vice President Gore is referring the carbon dioxide gas being released into the atmosphere as we power our civilization with fossil fuels. However, it turns out that as the...

    Americans are becoming only too aware of the financial tricks and deceit in which some of the nation's largest and most respected corporations engaged during the Clinton administration to pump up stock prices with fraudulently inflated profits. When the huge bubble no longer could be sustained the men and women at the top would bail out of their stock and pocket millions, leaving pensioners and other investors holding an empty bag. To market insiders these are known as "pump and dumps." While federal investigators are looking into the corporate malfeasance at Enron, WorldCom, Qwest Communications, AOL Time Warner and...
