CLIMATEGATE – Al Gore is either a liar or dumber than a sack of hammers

Al Gore decided to not go to Copenhagen and instead inflicted the Gore Effect on the Continental US. Meanwhile he has givevn an interview where he shows he is either utterly stupid or contemptuous liar. I’m picking the latter.

Q: How damaging to your argument was the disclosure of e-mails from the Climate Research Unit at East Anglia University?

A: To paraphrase Shakespeare, it?s sound and fury signifying nothing. I haven?t read all the e-mails, but the most recent one is more than 10 years old. These private exchanges between these scientists do not in any way cause any question about the scientific consensus.

Really! Oh dear Al, clearly you ether haven’t read them or are deliberately lying as a smokescreen:

Q: There is a sense in these e-mails, though, that data was hidden and hoarded, which is the opposite of the case you make [in your book] about having an open and fair debate.

A: I think it?s been taken wildly out of context. The discussion you?re referring to was about two papers that two of these scientists felt shouldn?t be accepted as part of the IPCC report. Both of them, in fact, were included, referenced, and discussed. So an e-mail exchange more than 10 years ago including somebody?s opinion that a particular study isn?t any good is one thing, but the fact that the study ended up being included and discussed anyway is a more powerful comment on what the result of the scientific process really is.

Oh he just did it again, the smokescreen is getting thicker than his lies.

These people are examining what they can or should do to deal with the P.R. dimensions of this, but where the scientific consensus is concerned, it?s completely unchanged. What we?re seeing is a set of changes worldwide that just make this discussion over 10-year-old e-mails kind of silly.

And again, can the man not tell the truth?

Wattsupwiththat shows just how wrong Al Gore is.

These emails show that the scientist were corrupt, the raw data shows that even that is corrupted and Al Gore’s obfuscations show just how utterly corrupt he is too.
