Compare & Contrast

Al Gore appearing on Friday's Oprah Winfrey show:
Temperature increases are taking place all over the world, including in the oceans. Gore warns that when the oceans get warmer, storms get stronger.

[P]eople should expect more Category 4 and 5 hurricanes if the ocean waters continue to warm.

"Ocean-based storms [get] stronger because when the top layer of the water gets warmer, the wind speed in these hurricanes goes up and the moisture content goes up," Gore says.

In the past few years, many big hurricanes have blown ashore.

I presume Oprah will be clueless in perpetuity. How much nonsense will it take before America realizes Gore lies?

BTW, NOAA's official report on the Atlantic hurricane season is not inconsistent with a decline in the severity of the storms.

No, he's a Democrat. He can be "mistaken".

It's only the GOP that tells lies all the time. ("Bush lied, idiots salivated"... you know, that kind of thing)

So, hey!! Get with the program, Carl!!

:oP

You're probably right. Still, I'm betting that, so long as China and India aren't part of Kyoto II, Americans--Democrats included--will reject carbon caps.

If you modify that to "enough Democrats included" I'll concur. There's lots of Dems already sniffing the methane.

"Hey! Where's that methane coming from?!? There's no methane tanks here!?!? .... Oh. .... OH! .... Ewwwwwwwww!!!"
