AlGore: ‘They’ Are Adding A Category Six For Climate Change-Enraged Mega ‘Canes

0 Shares

Former Vice President and Earth Defender Al Gore already invented the Internet.

Now he’s inventing a whole new category of megastorm. Gore told The Washington Post Wednesday that “they” – whoever they are – are about to institute a sixth category to accommodate the rogue, steroidal class of apocalyptic hurricanes coming in the future to a shoreline near you.

Blame man-made global warming:

The extreme events are more extreme. The hurricane scale used to be 1-5 and now they’re adding a 6. The fingerprint of man-made global warming is all over these storms and extreme weather events.

Eschatology is the enthralling religious preoccupation of the blame-mankind-for-the-apocalypse set, so Gore is simply hewing close to form. But, as the Post’s Jason Samenow notes, Gore’s climate change sermons have always borne an air of hyperbole.

“Generally, Gore’s characterization of the links between global warming and hurricane intensity is a bit fast and loose,” he wrote Thursday. “…[W]ith his penchant for overstatement, Gore will continue to be a divisive and less than credible voice in climate change discourse.”

Still, Samenow checked with the National Weather Service to be sure Gore’s “Category 6” prophecy had some basis in fact. But, like man-made climate change itself, the answer was disappointing.

“No, we’re not pursuing any such change,” responded NWS public affairs director Chris Vaccaro. “I’m also not sure who VP Gore means by ‘they.’ I’d also point out that the top rating, Category 5, has no ceiling: it includes hurricanes with top sustained winds of 157mph and higher.”

Talk about Inconvenient Truths.

Ben Bullard

Reconciling the concept of individual sovereignty with conscientious participation in the modern American political process is a continuing preoccupation for staff writer Ben Bullard. A former community newspaper writer, Bullard has closely observed the manner in which well-meaning small-town politicians and policy makers often accept, unthinkingly, their increasingly marginal role in shaping the quality of their own lives, as well as those of the people whom they serve. He argues that American public policy is plagued by inscrutable and corrupt motives on a national scale, a fundamental problem which individuals, families and communities must strive to solve. This, he argues, can be achieved only as Americans rediscover the principal role each citizen plays in enriching the welfare of our Republic.

    Ah, the infamous “They”.
    “They” are responsible for so much fallacy.

    Gore relies on “They” for many of his “facts”.
    He created Theyipedia when he invented the internet.

      They is experts didn’t ya know? I have my own definition of an expert: Take X usually used to denote an unknown. A spurt is a drip of water under pressure Therefore: an expert is an unknown drip under pressure! I guess AL Bore qualifies!!!

        It’s like the word “professional”. People think professional means expert. All it means is you are paid to do the job. It doesn’t mean they are any good at it.
        All those professional experts that make up the mighty “they”.
        “They”are legends in their own minds.

        The decline of American ‘s is soon going to be hit pretty hard as Colorado is supporting marijuana and now I see the mushroom heads are celebrating so it won’t be long and everything will be cool man and Al gore dwell be cool while the world falls apart and not by storms and bad weather but by drugs and then the Chinese will move in and take all Americans to an active Volcano and toss them in it.

        • Rob Reiken

          Sounds like you watch too many cartoons. seriously , you are blaming a vegetable called Marijuana for Americas downfall. Something that is one of the best cancer cures in the world & all the while Hemp could replace everything, food, clothing, fuel, paper. bluilding etc that could see an end to all polution on earth. In your ignorance you got no idea about the real truth why they made Cannabis illegal in the first place. If you get tossed into a volcano it is because your hijacked government has sold you out for this to happen under their plan called Agenda 21 depopulation, go look it up. There is no bigger criminal corrupt syndicate than westernized governments conspiring against we the people. About 6 years ago in Portugal all drugs were legalized & guess what? All crime, even habitual drug use went down cause making something illegal is what drives a greedy market for profit greed. The Feds/CIA are the biggest drug dealers in the world same as that big time well known drug dealer ex president Bill Clinton had around 150 murdered to protect his drug business. Know who your enemy is, for you got it so wrong if think it’s weed, chinesse or volcanoes.

          • Peoriaboy

            I think you read what force recon had to say and he is right on and yes I know all about the weed as Henry Ford is probably the first to use it for gas ,sure it has many sensible uses and smoking it isn’t one of them as it has just as many drawbacks as smoking cigarettes and the problem with weed most clowns think they can smoke it all through the day and perform and that my friend is bull for they become completely useless as I know for I work them . I tell them you guys can’t do a dam thing right when your smoking weed save your bull for after work cause everything just isn’t cool

          The more momentum the “mushroom heads” gain the faster the decline of society. When you look at the world through a drug induced stupor everything
          seems rad (I think that’s the term) and everything is fuzzy or mellow and you can be made to do whatever your controller dictates.

          I’ve seen Chinese hopped up on opium charge head long into a fusillade of gunfire oblivious of their surroundings we’d see them fall and try and keep coming at us most of them being dead while their systems being full of dope kept twitching and trying
          to come at us then another wave until the final wave was stone cold sober. A horrifying experience and a sight everyone contemplating using drugs should witness.

          In short drugs control you — you do not control them I don’t care what any dope head says Taking drugs is a cop out because you cannot face or handle reality!

    Gore continues his line of bull. And rakes in the money from gullible low information citizens. And selling his tv station to AlJazeer, an oil producer par excellence. What a hypocrite.

  • Sue Breslin

    I think Mr. Gore needs to change his flavor of kool-aide. Here’s an innovative thought- It is natural for the earth to go through cycles of weather changes, Some are severe, and some are mild; depends on what cycle the climate is in,
    Duh!!!!!!!!

    • Peoriaboy

      The man can’t be that ignorant and has to know this planet has been here for several thousand years and has rejected every thing that has hit it including a dumb ass like Gore,he is just upset that he couldn’t buy the presidency and his lunacy needs to go away .

      • independent thinker

        Al Bore does not care for he is raking in money hand over fist from his “predictions” of global weather catastrophe. Gore uses more energy in a week of globetrotting to spout his nonsense than most of us use in a month in the middle of a record breaking January cold spell.

    Why does the media pay attention to the idiotic things Gore spouts. That’s right he is a liberal so anything he says is right as the elitist left wants to blame mankind for all that is wrong even storms. A quickway to solve the problem is for the leftists to commit suicide less people less polluters.

      You just said it in one word IDIOTIC doesn’t that describe lame stream media?

      I know you rightwingers don’t understand any thinking beyond “black or white,” so you claim Gore is blaming hurricanes on global warming. Since you know there were hurricanes years ago, you know that’s not true. Well, there were home runs before steroids, too. If Barry Bonds hit a home run, there were a lot of reasons including the pitch, his timing and skill, perhaps the wind conditions, the size of the ballpark, etc. Somewhere down the list might be the increased strength derived from steroids. If you or I took the same steroids, we still couldn’t make contact with even a warm up pitch, so the steroids didn’t cause the home run.

      But if you look at the numbers and pre-steroids he hit 40 homers and post-steroids he hit 70, there’s clearly an effect. You couldn’t say any given home run was the result of steroids, but they clearly had an effect. It’s similar with hurricanes. There’s a reason hurricanes have a season. The water has to be warm enough to provide sufficient energy for such storms. As the water gets warmer, the season lengthens and the likelihood of powerful storms increases. We can’t say for certain that Katrina or Sandy were “caused” by global warming, but the warmer the oceans get, the more major storms we’ll likely experience.

      As for adding a “6” to the hurricane scale, it’s been discussed by those who do the rating.

    Gore could create a mega-storm himself with all the hot air that comes from flapping his jaws in excess. I really wish he’d just blow away already.

  • ldazzle

    Damn, my bad, I thoght he was talking about Tipper. in the old days.

  • Timothy Sullivan

    Sounds like a tempest in a teapot to me!

  • dave

    Thank God he was never elected as a president of these United States! He has managed to capitalize on the fear that the low information voters always seem to have, though.
    I suppose from a capitalists standpoint, I should congratulate him for taking something like this and using it to put a lot of cash in his pocket, but then I couldn’t stand to look at myself in the mirror!

    • Jeff

      Gore was elected, but the Brooks Brothers Mob prevented the recount in Florida from being finished. The Supreme Court appointed by Reagan and W’s Daddy made it official. How anyone after the disastrous 8 years of W can say Gore would have done worse – well, it’s beyond me. W was the worst President in American history – a moron who turned the reigns of government over to the most reactionary forces we’ve ever seen in power – Cheney and the Neocons. The result? Iraq and another Stock Market crash. I’m sure you’d vote for the little idiot again, wouldn’t you?

      • dave

        It is always so refreshng to talk to a dyed in the wool democrat, who believes all the propoganda that emerges rom the “party”. Unfortunately, most of you resort to name calling when you cannot come up with facts to back up your starry eyed claims.
        And you all seem to forget that the last 2 years of Bush’s tenure in office was controlled by a democratic house & senate. But Mr. Bush refrained from the pronouncments of OBAMA and tried to stay within the law instead of finding every way possible to bypass it.
        And yes, I would vote for George Junior in a heartbeat if it would remove and reverse the incompetence, complete lack of moral character and socialization of America that we see emanting from D.C. and the OBAMA “adminisration right now and for the past 4 1/2 years.

        • Jeff

          Bully for you. As for name-calling, I call people idiots when they post idiotic things. I don’t do that when someone posts something intelligently I just disagree with.

      • Don in Ohio

        Jeff, maybe you should STOP posting on here, you continue to prove you are a DUMBASS.
        W Bush was far better than your favorites and as for the worst, Carter and Odumbo are 1 and 2 with pleanty of time for Oblamo to cement his position as THE WORST.
        Thank you.

  • peter

    Has Al Gore ever explained what happened to the dinosaurs? Maybe he knows and will include that subject on his next speaking tour. Perhaps they farted themselves out of existence? I am sure he knows!

    • Jeff

      He doesn’t and he won’t, but if he ever says anything on the subject, I’m sure you’ll be there to say he’s claiming to be a dinosaur expert. Gore never claimed he invented the internet, and he didn’t make up the science surrounding global warming. He’s a spokesman for the scientists, those who actually know what they’re talking about, the vast majority of whom are very concerned about the very things Al Gore talks about – rising CO2 levels, the melting of the ice caps, rising sea levels, increasingly powerful storms, etc. As for the hurricane scale, he didn’t invent that either.

  • chuckb

    Gore should get an award for pulling the wool over the eyes of so many people,
    of course the education system should get that same prize.
    To think this man came so close to being president, however, we ended up with a person “Barry” who is even of lesser intellect.
    So let’s give the award to the Democratic (Bolshevik) party the award, they have given us Clinton, Gore and Barry Soetoro. The have ruled our politics with the help of the media and the education system. It’s time we wake up and destroy this dragon before we are totally consumed in the jaws of communism and Islam.

    • Jeff

      Chuckie, just in case your wife forgot to remind you this morning, you are really an idiot. You believe all the right wing nonsense about Al Gore, all the lies about what he “claimed” to have done, and you call Obama stupid while his feces have a higher IQ than you do.

        Jeffy. I see you are out of the funny farm again, “another weekend pass”. Only a tainted progressive like you could defend such a dunce as Gore. You don’t have to say more, you have disclosed yourself for what you are and how to you know Barrys feces has such a high IQ. oh I know, you have your head stuck up there again..
