Dy’er Sez: So Al Gore climbed on board the Climategate wagon in a very big way. In a recent interview, when asked about the infamous e-mails, he claimed that the latest one was more than ten years old. In fact, Mr. Gore is so wrong that he’s not just off base, but he has left the stadium, crossed the bridge, jumped on a plane, and apparently still thinks he can catch a shallow fly ball in left field; the dates of the e-mails ranged from 1996 through 2009.
Now, one can say that he simply misspoke and give him benefit of the doubt, but he uttered this falsehood not once but THREE time in the same interview. In effect this means that either he is commenting on something he knows nothing about (even though he claim to have read at least some of the e mails) which is simply moronic, or he is intentionally lying to create a buzz, a mantra if you will, for defenders of the global warming theory to latch on to and parrot to all who would decry their movement.
This is a very old trick: when you claim a lie over and over again it eventually becomes a sort of truth for some. The also causes one to question Gore’s statements about global warming itself. Can a man who would lie to cover up this scandal be trustworthy enough to proclaim a supposedly ‘inconvenient truth’?
According to Lord Christopher Monckton of the Science and Public Policy Institute (SPPI), Gore’s own film which was the banner for the movement is filled with incredible inaccuracies, half-truths, and downright lies that it brings the whole idea that was being purported by proponents of the global warming theory into question.
Let’s ask again: can we trust the statements of a man who not only lied to grow the theory but is now lying to cover it up. I, for one, cannot.

Climategate: Gore falsifies the record

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.
