Al Gore unhinged – now even climate change believers are ‘deniers’

Watts Up With That?

Bjorn Lomborg  writes:

Al Gore recently had a telling altercation with a journalist. The Spectator’s Ross Clark wanted to ask him about Miami sea-level rises suggested in the new film, “An Inconvenient Sequel.” The reporter started to explain that he had consulted Florida International University sea-level-rise expert Shimon Wdowinski. Gore’s response: “Never heard of him — is he a denier?” Then he asked the journalist, “Are you a denier?”

When Clark responded that he was sure climate change is a problem but didn’t know how big, Gore declared, “You are a denier.”

I was recently on the receiving end of a similar rebuff from Chile’s environment minister. I’d written an op-ed for a Chilean newspaper that, among other things, quoted UN findings on how little the Paris climate treaty would achieve and argued that vast investment in green energy research and development is a better policy. Marcelo Mena proclaimed…

Preparing for Al Gore’s Lecture at Rice University

Watts Up With That?

By Andy May

I have a ticket to Al Gore’s global warming lecture at Rice University on October 23 and plan to attend, I’m very curious about what he will say. The announcement says he will take questions, so I’ve scoured his web site to get ideas for a question should I have the opportunity.

His scientific credentials are thin, The Washington Times, after viewing Al Gore’s Harvard Transcript as released by the Washington Post, concluded that Al Gore was a slow learner in college, especially in science. Notably, he received a D and C- in his natural science college courses and avoided all math and logic courses. So, it would seem he is poorly prepared to lecture us on climate science, the questions will have to be simple, we cannot get into the weeds.

From Nigerian Scams to DNC Hack Attribution – Part 1

Climate Audit

In Crowdstrike’s original announcement that “Russia” had hacked the DNC, Dmitri Alperovitch said, on the one hand, that the “tradecraft” of the hackers was “superb” and their “operational security second none” and, on the other hand, that Crowdstrike had “immediately identified” the “sophisticated adversaries”.  In contrast, after three years of investigation of Climategate, UK counter-intelligence had been unable to pin down even whether the hacker was a lone motivated individual or organized foreign intelligence service.  Mr FOIA of Climategate subsequently emailed several bloggers, including myself, stating that he was a lone individual outside the UK who was a keen reader of Climate Audit and WUWT – a claim that I accept and which is consistent with my own prior interpretation of Climategate data and metadata.

I draw the contrast to draw attention to the facial absurdity of Crowdstrike’s claim that the tradecraft of the DNC hackers was “superb” – how…

Guccifer 2 Email Time Zone

Climate Audit

One of the major differences between Mr FOIA and Guccifer 2 is the latter’s use of email to correspond to journalists.

G2 contacted Gawker and Smoking Gun on June 15, corresponding further with Smoking Gun on June 21 and June 27. He corresponded with Vocativ on July 4-5 and with the Hill on July 11 and 14.  Both the content and metadata are available for the June 27, July 4-5, July 11 and July 14 emails. Threat Connect has been the most prominent in using email metadata in efforts to link Guccifer 2 to Russia: here, here, here.  Jeffrey Carr has been one of the most prominent critics of these metadata analyses.

In today’s post, I’m going to discuss some timestamp information that, to my knowledge, has not been previously canvassed.  The analysis turns on information from the accumulation of a chain involving different time zones. Readers of…
