The inevitable has happened. Al Gore adds his two cents on the cyclone (hurricane) in Myanmar, formerly known as Burma. It was caused by global warming. No doubt aided and abetted by his global jet travel. Hawking his latest book ‘The Assault on Reason,’ Gore tells Terry Gross on NPR’s ‘Fresh Air’ show yesterday. . .
“And as we’re talking today, Terry, the death count in Myanmar from the cyclone that hit there yesterday has been rising from 15,000 to way on up there to much higher numbers now being speculated,” Gore said. “And last year a catastrophic storm from last fall hit Bangladesh. The year before, the strongest cyclone in more than 50 years hit China – and we’re seeing consequences that scientists have long predicted might be associated with continued global warming.”
The self-proclaimed inventor of the Internet supports his assertion with facts like ‘might be associated with’ and ’emerging consensus.’ No word from Gore on the emerging consensus surrounding the fact that global ocean temperature has actually dropped in the last 12 months by nearly one degree or its association with a decrease in solar activity.
Today’s Most Ridiculous Item Of The Day Award goes to Al Gore.
afterthought: Wait, I’ve seen this before. First it was Rita Cosby with her book, ‘Blonde Ambition.’ Now it’s Al Gore with his book, ‘The Assault on Reason.’ Just too funny.
