Save the planet! Stop breathing

Victor Joecks

Save the planet. Do not exhale. Didn’t you get the EPA’s memo? CO2 is now a “pollutant.” So global warming true believers – it’s time you stop exhaling and polluting this precious planet of ours.

In other news, Al Gore has been caught lying about the ClimateGate e-mails.

Al Gore has studied the Climategate emails with his typically rigorous eye and dismissed them as mere piffle:

Q: How damaging to your argument was the disclosure of e-mails from the Climate Research Unit at East Anglia University?
A: To paraphrase Shakespeare, it’s sound and fury signifying nothing. I haven’t read all the e-mails, but the most recent one is more than 10 years old. These private exchanges between these scientists do not in any way cause any question about the scientific consensus.

And in case you think that was a mere slip of the tongue:

Q: There is a sense in these e-mails, though, that data was hidden and hoarded, which is the opposite of the case you make [in your book] about having an open and fair debate.
A: I think it’s been taken wildly out of context. The discussion you’re referring to was about two papers that two of these scientists felt shouldn’t be accepted as part of the IPCC report. Both of them, in fact, were included, referenced, and discussed. So an e-mail exchange more than 10 years ago including somebody’s opinion that a particular study isn’t any good is one thing, but the fact that the study ended up being included and discussed anyway is a more powerful comment on what the result of the scientific process really is…

In fact, as Watts Up With That shows, one Climategate e-mail was from just two months ago. The most recent was sent on November 12 – just a month ago. The e-mails featuring Tom Wigley seeming (to me) to choke on the deceit are all from this year. Phil Jones’ infamous e-mail urging other Climategate scientists to delete e-mails is from last year.

Oh well, don’t let a few (hundred) inconvenient truths get in the way of your hypocritical lifestyle. Gore’s probably still exhaling and flying on private jets.
