Gore’s Non-science Reality

I just looked in on Al Gore’s 24 hour reality project at:

What I saw is a littany of the droughts, flooding and wildfire problems that are currently going on in the world. The emphasis was on fear. Any science linking them to global warming was totally absent.   For a presentation ostensibly about climate science, there was a lack of climate perspective,  such as comparable events in previous years.

The presenter goes on to project how droughts will be worse in the future, however, he doesn’t note that the models that made the projections have been documented to include less than half the INCREASE in precipitation actually OBSERVED in association with the recent warming. See this article by Wentz published in the journal science:

I highly recommend these sites for getting open discussion of the current climate science controversies and advances:

My favorite site for getting historical perspective on current weather events and seemingly prescient long range projections of the weather based upon historical data from years where the oceans and polar circulation were in a comparable state to today:
