Want a Good Laugh?

The American Association for the Advancement of Science had Al Gore as Guest.

What an oxymoron! Al Gore and Advancement of Science.

The New York Times DotEarth Column reports that Big Al dropped a slide from his presentation. The slide blamed "global warming" for almost everything.

Now Mr. Gore is dropping the graph, his office said today. Here’s why.

Two days after the talk, Mr. Gore was sharply criticized for using the data to make a point about global warming by Roger A. Pielke, Jr., a political scientist focused on disaster trends and climate policy at the University of Colorado. Mr. Pielke noted that the Center for Research on the Epidemiology of Disasters stressed in reports that a host of factors unrelated to climate caused the enormous rise in reported disasters.

Will Al report back to the The American Association for the Advancement of Science and report that he was actually advancing phantasy - not science?
