UPDATE: 8/23/13 1:00PM PDT Its seems theres blunders to go around. The Washington Post now says they misquoted Gore. Given his penchant for saying and doing dumb things in the past related to his views on climate, color me skeptical, especially when he makes ugly comparisons about people like he did below. It may be more of a case of some deal was worked out behind the scenes to salvage Gores waning credibility. I suppose well never know, but I have asked WaPo to put the relevant audio of the tape recorded session online so we can verify that Gore was misquoted. Anthony
From the WUWT story yesterday: Al Gore compares climate skeptics to anti abolitionists, racists, homophobes, and alcoholic families
Would there be hurricanes and floods and droughts without man-made global warming? Of course. But theyre stronger now. The extreme events are more extreme. The hurricane scale used to be 1-5 and now theyre adding a 6. The fingerprint of man-made global warming is all over these storms and extreme weather events.
We are used to such feckless bloviations, such as when Gore said on national television the temperature below the Earths crust is millions of degrees. or when he adds reverse rotation airbrushed hurricanes to his book to make the weather look scarier.
Today, the Capital Weather Gang at the Washington Post called out Gore for his nonsense.

But Gores statement about this new breed of hurricanes is patently false. Theres no new hurricane category in the works.
Just to be sure, I contacted Chris Vaccaro, director of the National Weather Services office of public affairs, and asked him whether the National Hurricane Center is about to unveil the doomsday Category 6. In less than 10 minutes, he fired back this response:
No, were not pursuing any such change. Im also not sure who VP Gore means by they. Id also point out that the top rating, Category 5, has no ceiling: it includes hurricanes with top sustained winds of 157mph and higher
But with his penchant for overstatement, Gore will continue to be a divisive and less than credible voice in climate change discourse.

Good for him and kudos for calling out this nonsense. Every time I think of Gore and Cat6, I think of him as the Stay-Puft man in Ghostbusters rampaging on NYC. The only valid question remaining is, why does anybody still listen to him?
lol...I was typing mine...
Yes, but he only did so in a good cause. It is only by happenstance that he makes tens of millions of dollars. He supports "progressives", so it must be so!/S
"Misquoted." Yeah, that's the ticket.
Al Gore is a Cat 6 Butthole.
Just remember, we came **this** close to having him in the White House running things for four to eight years. We’d be a lot further down the line towards socialism with him in there.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
“Wed be a lot further down the line towards socialism with him in there.”
Keep in mind, Gore lost his and my home state, Tennessee.
We always knew him to be a first class jerk.
One other note...Gore has a farm with a zink mine in Tennessee, listed as one of the largest waterway polluters in the state. He is a socialist only by what he can make from it.
Should have contacted NASA instead, they might be the "they" Al heard about and (in typical fashion) garbled, IF they were talking about JUPITER'S winds/storms.
How would you have liked being the TA assigned to read his class papers in any of his college courses? Was that used as a punishment detail? Enquiring minds....
SPINAL TAP BUMP !!!!
The press also continually brought up "no new taxes" and the "sins" of W's father... while ignoring the fact that Senator Al Gore Sr was the #1 voice in Congress opposing the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
The Left cares only for power, nothing else.
LYING....it’s what Democrats do Best!!
