Shamelessly ripped off, From Dave in boca
The funniest quote of the Nineteen-Nineties may have been uttered by Algo-rhythm Gorebot
"Only an insignificant fraction of scientists deny the global warming crisis. The time for debate is over. The science is settled."No, the simpleton with the elitist claque behind him didn't say that to push his incredibly factitious imbecilic movie---Michael Moore with less slapstick. The droning boring intoningly anxious student of climate, the information superhighway, and lockboxes actually said this far earlier.
So said Al Gore ... in 1992. Amazingly, he made his claims despite much evidence of their falsity. A Gallup poll at the time reported that 53% of scientists actively involved in global climate research did not believe global warming had occurred; 30% weren't sure; and only 17% believed global warming had begun. Even a Greenpeace poll showed 47% of climatologists didn't think a runaway greenhouse effect was imminent; only 36% thought it possible & a mere 13% thought it probable.Now anyone with a brain has long ago figured out that Lyin' Al just can't tell the truth without gilding the lily, exaggerating, or just plain spewing his own brand of "Happy Horsesh*t." His fans in Tennessee knew him well, and his lost his native state in the 2000 election because they know he is a specious phony baloney boy from decades of watching him disgrace himself in public life. Where do the Dems come up with specimens like The Goracle and Airy-Hairy-Kerry? Just lyin' flip-floppers from breakfast to bedtime---and lots of help from a double-digit IQ peanut gallery of leftardos and females with second-rate minds and first-rate libidos. [John-Boy Edwards in this case]Here's a recent article from the respected British publication The Telegraph with an update on Al's little joke on all of us undereducated skeptics.The National Post is perhaps one of the few outposts of sanity in Eastern Canada. A few recent articles from this Ottawa-based publication have some of those benighted skepticsraising their objections as in the case of a Professor Svensmark.The paper has had other skeptical articles hereand another article here by Nigel Weiss.Not only the frozen Canadians, but The Australians are not buying the Goracle's Pied Piper tune to the lemmings on AGW. And the eminent respected dean of Canadian climatologists, a professor named Tim Ball has pointed out some of the shortcomings of the "scientific" community.Betsy's Page has some good links on the continuing depantsing and factual spanking of the continuously silly ex-VP and all-time biggest US election loser Al Gore, who also doubles as the morally superior Gore, the zinc magnate who parades his lame excuses in the WSJ. Al also had lots of oil industry connections besides his Occidental ties. Just a short list of the most recent skeptical scientific and political links to anyone who wants to investigate more than the received wisdom of the airhead hairy-headed "climatologists." Couldn't find the link of the NASA Chief, but will update when found.
Many thanks to dave in boca for doing the leg work.
The "Consensus" has never been over 50%. That's what a majority is. Consensus IMO should be 90% plus.
