Gore’s Non-science Reality 2

I just checked in on the live video stream again.  This time there was color pallete deceit.   A map showing levels of drought this summer had the Pacific Northwest in hot red, even though this was a wetter than normal summer due to La Nina.   Al Gore spoke about the signature of CO2 warming in the stratosphere, without disclosing that the signature doesn’t indicate what percentage of the warming CO2 is responsible for.  The signature would be present even if the warming was mostly natural and CO2 responsible for less than a third of the warming.   Of course, he leaps from that to the assumption we should swallow the model projections of future warming.

It reminds me of those Christian door to door proselytizers,  who assume that if they can get you to believe in God with various arguments and “proofs” that you will then accept the whole pantheon of supernatural beings including Christ, Satan, angels, etc.    They don’t seem to realize that we might also demand proofs for the existence of Satan.
