Al Gore just loves making stuff up.
Last month, on the Conan O’Brien show Gore made this hilarious claim that “the interior of the earth is extremely hot, several million degrees.” Except the temperature at the earth’s core, 4,000 miles down, is usually quoted as 5,000 degrees Celsius! The temperature at the surface of the Sun is around 6,000 degrees Celsius, while at the center, where nuclear fusion is going on, it’s over 10 million degrees. In other words, if the temperature of the earth’s interior were “several million degrees,” our planet would be a star!
Gore is still making stuff up. The latest is a speech he gave at the Copenhagen climate change summit in which he quoted climatologist Dr. Wieslav Maslowski, that “there’s a 75% chance that the entire north polar ice cap, during the summer months, could be completely ice-free within five to seven years.”
The problem is Maslowski denies he ever said that: “It’s unclear to me how this figure was arrived at…. I would never try to estimate likelihood at anything as exact as this.”
Gore’s office later admitted that the 75% figure was one used by Maslowksi as a “ballpark figure” several years ago in a conversation with Gore. Yeah, right….
So, here we have a world spokesman pushing the man-made global warming/climate change agenda who doesn’t know the difference between millions vs. thousands of degrees. How pathetic is that?
