The Goracle, speaking at the UN Copenhagen Climate Change Farce Conference:
And he urged the world to complete a global deal by July, assuming the Copenhagen summit ends this week with a political agreement by all the countries.
Describing a “runaway melt” of the Earth’s ice, rising tree mortality and prospects of severe water scarcities, Gore told a UN audience: “In the face of effects like these, clear evidence that only reckless fools would ignore, I feel a sense of frustration” at the lack of agreement so far.
“Rising tree mortality?” Really? Should I go hug my favorite oak before it dies from drought, gets blown over by gale-force storms created by Man’s folly, and then floats away on the rising seas?
Umm… No. Nope. Not at all.
Satellite data for the real world (not the one Mr. Gore lives in) can help give us an idea.
Globally net primary productivity (NPP) has increased. As the IPCC’s WG II report (p. 106) says:
Satellite-derived estimates of global net primary production from satellite data of vegetation indexes indicate a 6% increase from 1982 to 1999, with large increases in tropical ecosystems (Nemani et al., 2003) [Figure 1]. The study by Zhou et al. (2003), also using satellite data, confirm that the Northern Hemisphere vegetation activity has increased in magnitude by 12% in Eurasia and by 8% in NorthAmerica from 1981 to 1999
Tell me again why anyone takes bombastic fraud seriously?
