What Al Gore Doesn't Want You To Know...AGAIN

The more Al Gore talks, the dumber he gets. Should we really believe that he just doesn't know that:

  • the Arctic was as warm or warmer in 1940 than it is today;
  • that icebergs have been falling off the polar ice sheets since time immemorial;
  • that the evidence so far suggests that the Greenland ice sheet is actually growing on average;
  • Alpine glaciers have been retreating since the early 19th century, and were advancing for several centuries before that.
  • Since about 1970, many of the glaciers have stopped retreating and some are now advancing again.
  • And, frankly, we don't know why.
Or could it be that he knows all these things, but they won't help re-invigorate his political career the same way that irrational alarmism will? Could it be he also knows the mainstream press will never fact-check his story?

A dummy, or a liar--which one is it, Al?
