Gores (Really) Inconvenient Timing Consensus On Man-Made Global Warming Collapses in 2008
UN Warned of 10-Year Climate 'Tipping Point' in 1989
Former Vice-President Al Gore came to Washington on July 17, 2008, to deliver yet another speech warning of the climate crisis.
The leading experts predict that we have less than 10 years to make dramatic changes in our global warming pollution lest we lose our ability to ever recover from this environmental crisis, Gore stated. But the former Vice President, who has been warning of a 10-year tipping point for several years now, appears to be unaware that the United Nations already started the 10 year countdown in 1989!
According to July 5, 1989, article in the Miami Herald, the then-director of the New York office of the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), Noel Brown, warned of a 10-year window of opportunity to solve global warming. According to the 1989 article, A senior U.N. environmental official says entire nations could be wiped off the face of the Earth by rising sea levels if the global warming trend is not reversed by the year 2000. Coastal flooding and crop failures would create an exodus of eco-refugees, threatening political chaos. (LINK) & (LINK)
While Gore repeats his standard stump speech promoting man-made climate fears, much of the international science community is now openly dissenting from human caused global warming fears.
Below is a very small sampling of very inconvenient developments for Gore, the United Nations, and the mainstream media. Peer-reviewed studies, analyses, and prominent scientists continue to speak out to refute climate fears. The vast majority of data presented below is from just the past month.

RUSSIAN SCIENTISTS CHALLENGE CLIMATE CHANGE CONSENSUS - Russian scientists 'reject the very idea that carbon dioxide may be responsible for global warming' - The Hindu Indias National Newspaper: July 10, 2008:
Excerpt: As western nations step up pressure on India and China to curb the emission of greenhouse gases, Russian scientists reject the very idea that carbon dioxide may be responsible for global warming. Russian critics of the Kyoto Protocol, which calls for cuts in CO2 emissions, say that the theory underlying the pact lacks scientific basis. Under the Theory of Anthropogenic Global Warming, it is human-generated greenhouse gases, and mainly CO2, that cause climate change. The Kyoto theorists have put the cart before the horse, says renowned Russian geographer Andrei Kapitsa. It is global warming that triggers higher levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, not the other way round. (LINK)
'Considerable presence' of global warming skeptics exist, science group admits July 16, 2008 Australian Herald
Excerpt: What consensus? The American Physical Society reports: There is a considerable presence within the scientific community of people who do not agree with the IPCC conclusion that anthropogenic CO2 emissions are very probably likely to be primarily responsible for the global warming that has occurred since the Industrial Revolution. - So it has opened a debate, kicked off by Christopher Monckton: The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC, 2007) concluded that anthropogenic CO2 emissions probably caused more than half of the global warming of the past 50 years and would cause further rapid warming. However, global mean surface temperature has not risen since 1998 and may have fallen since late 2001. The present analysis suggests that the failure of the IPCCs models to predict this and many other climatic phenomena arises from defects in its evaluation of the three factors whose product is climate sensitivity More importantly, the conclusion is that, perhaps, there is no climate crisis, and that currently-fashionable efforts by governments to reduce anthropogenic CO2 emissions are pointless, may be ill-conceived, and could even be harmful.

India Issues Report Challenging Global Warming Fears July 9, 2008
Excerpt: India issued its National Action Plan on Climate Change in June 2008 disputing man-made global warming fears and declared the country of one billion people had no intention of stopping its energy growth or cutting back its CO2 emissions. [ ] The report declared: No firm link between the documented [climate] changes described below and warming due to anthropogenic climate change has yet been established. (LINK)

LOL, amazing what very few well placed articles will generate in the way of headlines.
Global Warming hoax goes unchallenged, it’s from God’s mouth to your ears.
A couple of well placed objections and the spell is broken.
LOL, the media, this was a scam from day one.
Ever notice we don’t hear anything about the ozone layer anymore? It’s back to ‘normal’, whatever that is. And it didn’t take decades after all.
EXCELLENT SOURCE! I will save this one!
* Make all carbon credit scams unlawful. Discrediting Algore should have been a slam-dunk a long time ago. Stop electing Reps who buy into the Global Warming / Global Cooling / Climate Change Hoax. CO2 is not our enemy!
And the Sahara Desert was once an ocean! and that was not done by man either!
There was a consensus on global warming?
This is on the order of drumming up hype on some new Hollywood production, for a movie like “Ishtar”. For something to live up to its expectations, there has to be some semblance of reality and plausibility involved.
Humanity is going to be stuck with using carbon-based fuel for well down into the infinite future.
If only because we are carbon-based organisms.
I agree. Man may one day reclaim it though.
And then the left will bitch about that too.
Hey Gore, you charlatan, take your goddam money and run....
..before the lynch mob comes after you.
It appears as though many legitimate scientists are starting to unass Algore’s “global warming” bandwagon. I can’t blame them, they’ve got their reputations to protect. Al! You’re on your own! LOL!
These reports must make Fat Al see red. It makes me sick to see his fat freaking face as he browbeats an audience with his global warming bile. The media should be closed down for propping up lowlife idiots like Fat Al Gore.
Now THAT’s something I’d pay to see!
Wouldn’t you just love to see the Justice Department swoop in and prosecute him for perpetrating a fraud.
Global warming, ethanol, freon FRAUD BTTT.
Bump for signs of SANITY!
Ohh WOE is me... whys everybody pickin on me???
