Silly Gore links Iowa floods and tornadoes to climate change

______________________________



6 Oct 08 - Excerpt: Gore attributed the historic floods that devastated Iowa in June to man-made emissions causing more water to evaporate from oceans, increasing average humidity worldwide. "In 66 of your 99 counties, the flood damage was truly historic." Gore told the crowd of 1,000 Democratic donors. "No one has ever seen a flood like this." Gore also blamed climate change for increased tornadoes, including the one that leveled much of Parkersburg earlier this year. "Yes, we've always had tornadoes in Iowa and in Tennessee," he said. "But they're coming more frequently and they're stronger."

Note: Gore has absolutely no scientific backing for these claims: See these inconvenient studies listed below:  

1) Climatologist dismisses extreme weather predictions due to man-made warming as “complete nonsense.” 7 Jul 08 - By Hydro-climatologist Stewart Franks, an Associate Professor of Environmental Engineering at the University of Newcastle in Australia.

2) Midwest Floods and Unjustified Climate Change Fear Mongering
22 June 08 - Another scientist dismisses fearmongers: Mike Smith is a certified consulting meteorologist and a Fellow of the American Meteorological Society He is CEO of WeatherData Services, Inc., an AccuWeather Company, based in Wichita.)

3) U.S. Government Climate Report Called ‘Biased’ - Debunks Itself  
20 Jun 08 - U.S. Climate Change Science Program (CCSP) report shows Hurricanes declining, NO increases in drought, tornados, thunderstorms, heat-waves

5) COLD PERIODS - not warm periods - see INCREASE in floods, droughts, storms, famine  24 Apr 08 –  Analysis in peer-reviewed journal - Quaternary Science Reviews – reinforces skeptical viewpoint.
