Blowing Hot and Cold

by William Yeatman on April 28, 2008

Claims that global warming causes extreme cold weather are popping up once again.  The British Telegraph reports that, due to greenhouse emissions, we’ll have a wetter Arctic that will produce colder winters.  And in Peru climate change is being blamed for deadly cold temperatures.

The alarmists love these claims, because it makes their predictions even more unverifiable.

But consider what Al Gore said in his film:   “[T]here is one relationship that is more powerful than all the others and it is this. When there is more carbon dioxide, the temperature gets warmer, because it traps more heat from the sun.” 

Suppose Gore had said this instead:  “When there is more carbon dioxide, the temperature gets warmer … or it gets colder.”

Would Gore have been laughed off the world’s stage, or would he have been hailed as an even greater prophet?
