Did any of you lot hear anything a few days ago? I didn't but surely I should have done, I mean, the world can't just end with a whimper and a sigh! And I've just taken a peek out of my window and, well, everything looks pretty much the same, by which I mean that my 'garden' still needs attention, my patio needs sweeping and the neighbour's old cat is off on another killing mission, so really, it's just the 'same old, same old'. All of which observational data, as we science swots put it, brings me to Mr. Al Capone, oooops sorry, I mean Mr. Al Gore.
I am indebted to Mr. Anthony Watts from WUWT for reminding me that ten years ago Mr. Gore issued a dire warning that we only had ten years to save the world from global warming caused by the outpourings of CO2. So it's a bit embarrassing that over the last 20-odd years the amount of CO2 emissions has gone up and up and yet global temperatures have barely shifted. Mind you, what has gone up and up is the amount of dosh earned by Mr. Gore through his investments in sundry 'anti-global warming' projects backed by zillions of US suckers', ooops sorry, taxpayers' dollars.
The Investors Business Daily has analysed "some inconvenient truths" concerning Mr. Gore's nonsense and offers this sensible advice:
Gore will never apologize for peddling deceit, never admit he was wrong. Best thing to do is ignore him.
I, on the other hand, would urge my American readers to follow the general advice of the late Auberon Waugh that when faced with a politician on a soap-box simply shout, "Show us your willy!" In Mr. Gore's case I would add "Show us your money too!"
