Sea Levels Are Rising at an Alarming Rate
Gore predicted that sea levels could rise six meters (20 feet) with the melting of the Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets.
Sea level has been increasing… at a steady level since we started recording them.
CO2 Is the Control Knob for Temperature
Like most climate cultists, Al Gore firmly believes that carbon dioxide is what controls temperature.
Unfortunately, “it’s the sun, stupid” to paraphrase Bill Clinton. Indeed satellite data show no increase in temperature for nearly 19 years despite a constant increase in CO2. The Sun, on the other hand, might have a much larger role in the Earth’s climate. So much that some scientists are talking about a significant cooling because the Sun is “quieter.”
And of course, climate models have miserably failed even compared to the (very probably) tampered NASA data.
Hurricane Katrina Was Man Made
New Orleans had been devastated by Hurricane Katrina and many people believed that this would be the new norm because of global warming.
As for Katrina being the new norm, Gore is wrong once more. No F3+ hurricane has landed on U.S. soil since Wilma in October 2005, the longest such “drought” ever recorded.
Severe Tornadoes Are Increasing
Along with hurricanes, climate cultist logic teaches us that other extreme wind events like tornadoes will be on the rise.
However, it’s not blowing very strong. F3+ tornadoes have been declining for over 60 years. Also, the overall number of tornadoes has been unusually low in the past three years.
Polar Bears Are Dying
The North’s favorite mascot in going extinct according to America’s green pope. Because the ice is getting thinner because of global warming, they can’t reproduce.
Of course, this is hot air too. There are more polar bears now than when Al Gore was born. The government of Nunavut, along with Inuit hunters, have also noticed that the polar bear is doing quite well.
The Arctic Is Melting
The polar bears are disappearing because their playground, the Arctic, is melting fast. Gore even predicted its complete melting for 2014.
Now that we know it’s not true, here is one more inconvenient truth about the North Pole. It’s gaining ice, and 2015 saw the largest refreezing in over a decade.
The Sahel Is Drying Up
The region south of the Sahara desert is one of the poorest places on the planet. And because of global warming, it’s getting drier and drier according to the Goreacle.
This is not true. As shown by satellite images, the Sahel is in fact one of the regions that gained the most flora density since satellites exist. All of that is due to the reviled CO2, which acts as a fertilizer.
CO2 Is Pollution
Finally, no climate cultist nonsense would be complete without uttering their favorite lie, CO2 is carbon “pollution.”
But as shown above, more CO2 is desirable. In fact, agriculture seems to profit greatly from increased carbon “pollution” as shown by yields. But if CO2 does need to be controlled, then liberals might think twice about organic farming.
