There He Goes Again

Al Gore makes another materially false statement:

Gore says, “The heavy snowfalls this month have been used as fodder for ridicule by those who argue that global warming is a myth, yet scientists have long pointed out that warmer global temperatures have been increasing the rate of evaporation from the oceans, putting significantly more moisture into the atmosphere — thus causing heavier downfalls of both rain and snow in particular regions, including the Northeastern United States….”

….In fact, recent research actually contra dicts Gore’s claims about “significantly more water moisture in the atmosphere.”

In late January, Scientific American reported: “A mysterious drop in water vapor in the lower stratosphere might be slowing climate change,” and noted that “an apparent increase in water vapor in this region in the 1980s and 1990s exacerbated global warming.”

Gore has a more than spotty record on telling the truth, as a court in Britain pointed out. Keep in mind that this man has gotten rich off his dire warnings of inevitable doom and stands to make even more by getting more governments to play along with his not exactly true statements.

The folks down in Georgia and the Carolinas are getting hammered with snow right now. I don’t recall that happening very often at all. Where I live, we are running about 10 degrees below the average and have been for some time. It may – just may – warm a bit this weekend during the day, but the nights are still going to bone-chilling temperatures. I’ve about worn out an ice scraper this season.

    I’ve pointed out has several factual errors in Gore’s movie, so I’m not defending his character.

    But let’s not spread our own errors; the SciAm article refers to lack of water in the stratosphere,which is above 60,000 feet.
    Most (99%) of atmospheric water is in the troposphere (everything below 60,000 ft).
    So this article does not falsify Gore’s statement – not this time.
