Looks like little Al's trying to misdirect the world public on the age of the Climategate emails. Or is he just as ignorant on this as he is on global climate change science?

Climategate: Gore falsifies the record

Al Gore has studied the Climategate emails with his typically rigorous eye and dismissed them as mere piffle:

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.

And in case you think that was a mere slip of the tongue:

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.

In fact, thrice denied:

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.

In fact, as Watts Up With That shows, one Climategate email was from just two months ago. The most recent was sent on November 12 - just a month ago. The emails which have Tom Wigley seeming (to me) to choke on the deceit are all from this year. Phil Jones’ infamous email urging other Climategate scientists to delete emails is from last year.

How closely did Gore read these emails? Did he actually read any at all? Was he lying or just terribly mistaken? What else has he got wrong?

He knows just say it on tv, and people will believe it.

Thats life, and most will accept his version, unfortunately.

This also comes from the same guy that said the earth is millions of degrees:

When in actuality, we know its much less:

Another Earth Temp site

So...I wonder what else he makes up?

Imagine that... Al Gore lying about something.

It was Vice President Dan Quayle who got caught dropping and misspelling the hot potato. It is actually a common mistake with many people because when they buy potatoes that's how they see them spelled. The plural of potato is potatoes. Dan Quayle was universally seen as a moron, especially by the main stream media, however Al Gore actually spoke highly of Quayle which is hardly a ringing endorsement but Gore did seem to respect the man more than most did.

you fools, how dare you question the inventor of the internet!

This poor guy is just not very good at lying. You would think being a politician, he would have picked up a bit more skill by now.

He has an agenda and a mission. He will not be deterred. He will preach his man made climate change message because there is a lot at stake. He is a snake. Very subtle. His extravagant lifestyle is offset by buying carbon credits elsewhere. Look into this. It's a total scam on us all.
