    Al Gore in 24-hour broadcast to convert climate skeptics
    (Reuters) - Former President Al Gore will renew his 30-year campaign to convince skeptics of the link between climate change and extreme weather events this week in a 24-hour global multi-media event.

    "24 Hours of Reality" will broadcast a presentation by Al Gore every hour for 24 hours across 24 different time zones from Wednesday to Thursday, with the aim of convincing climate change deniers and driving action against global warming among households, schools and businesses.​

    :rofl::rofl::rofl:

    Unfortunately for Gore, reality steadfastly refuses to back up his claims.

    NOAA: No evidence that weather is becoming more extreme. « Debunk House

    But is it true? To answer that question, you need to understand whether recent weather trends are extreme by historical standards. The Twentieth Century Reanalysis Project is the latest attempt to find out, using super-computers to generate a dataset of global atmospheric circulation from 1871 to the present.

    As it happens, the project’s initial findings, published last month, show no evidence of an intensifying weather trend. “In the climate models, the extremes get more extreme as we move into a doubled CO2 world in 100 years,” atmospheric scientist Gilbert Compo, one of the researchers on the project, tells me from his office at the University of Colorado, Boulder. “So we were surprised that none of the three major indices of climate variability that we used show a trend of increased circulation going back to 1871.”

    In other words, researchers have yet to find evidence of more-extreme weather patterns over the period, contrary to what the models predict. “There’s no data-driven answer yet to the question of how human activity has affected extreme weather,” adds Roger Pielke Jr., another University of Colorado climate researcher.​

    Poor Al's getting desperate. His scheme of getting even richer from Cap & Trade is falling apart.

    rather than a lame pep rally, I would like to see more lectures with credible speakers explaining the warmist and skeptical sides of climate change issues. Lindzen has been in a few and they can be very interesting. mind you the pre and post audience surveys show the skeptical side making more 'converts' so I can understand why the warmists dont like exposing their weaknesses in a forum which they cant control.

    Like father like son.. Gore Sr was an ornament for Armand Hammer and Occidental Petrol. Used to brag that he a US Senator right here (patted his wallet pocket)..

    Anyway ---

    Page 1 of the "Idiot's guide to Global Warming". The main forcing function of temperature rise from CO2concentrations says that the effect of larger concentrations reduces exponentially the warming potential. Guess that could be why the effect has been so dissappointing in terms of KILLER storms and MASS destruction..

    I'd spring for "pay per view" for that grudge match.. But you're right. There would be mass protests about the selection and the moderation and the terms of debate. And probably a lot of "the more popular" AGW advocates would never accept the challenge.
