Al Gore never once claimed he was a scientist of any sort. You people made that delusion in your own heads.
Al is the spokesperson for the Global Group On Climate Change. That is all he has ever been since him leaving public service.
When you reference Al you are referring to the worlds top climatologists. He speaks for them. No different than the Presidents press secretary.
Lord Mockton isn't a scientist but is a paid shill for big energy. So when you stand by him you stand with Exxon Mobil and company.
I would rather stand by the thousands of the worlds scientists.
They do: it's called the backing of the fossil fuel industry

The reason it has been so cold lately is because the HAARP installation in Alaska is being used to "push" the jet stream to the south across North America. This is what it was built for. The rest of the garbage about HAARP, like mind control or it being a doomsday weapon is mostly disinformation deliberately put out to confuse people. I believe HAARP is being used in conjunction with the atmospheric spraying program (chemtrails) in order to try to alleviate MMGW. Looks to me like it is working. If you don't believe HAARP can move the jet stream, I suggest you read Bernard Eastlund's patent on it. I have, several times and the physics make sense. Heat up a patch of the ionosphere and the air underneath will move to fill in the void. The upper level air is where the jet stream is. Push the jet stream south and the cold arctic air will follow it. The same thing is being done in Europe using the ionospheric heater in Norway.

Al Gore Sr. left the farm and got into bed heavily with Occidental. He made a fortune through kickbacks. That much is common knowledge around these parts, even by those who still support Al Gore.
Yeah great - and Luke Skywalker's father was Darth Vader. So for anyone who hasn't seen the movie just save yourself the trouble because this clearly means Luke ultimately joined the dark side. The End.

The history of the Gore family and Occidental Petroleum have been intertwined for generations. Al Gore Sr. was such a loyal political ally that Occidental’s founder and longtime CEO, Armand Hammer, liked to say that he had Gore “in my back pocket.” When Gore Sr. left the Senate in 1970, Hammer gave him a half a million dollar a year job at an Occidental subsidiary and a seat on the company’s board of directors. Money from Occidental and its subsidiaries formed the basis of the Gore family fortune.
Occidental, the world's largest CO2 operator, is successfully injecting more than one billion cubic feet of CO2 per day
CO2 flooding is a proven enhanced oil recovery technique in which the CO2 is injected deep into oil reservoirs with minimal environmental impact to reduce the viscosity of the trapped oil so it flows more easily to the well bores, increasing production and extending the economic life of mature oil fields
Upon completion of the project, the CO2 would be permanently stored, or geologically sequestered, in the reservoir. CO2 injection is a tertiary (third) recovery method applied in mature oil fields after primary methods have run their course.
In late 1997, Al Gore supported the federal government’s three and a half billion dollar sale of the Elk Hills oil field in Bakersfield, California, to Occidental Petroleum. This was the largest privatization of federal property in US history.
