Gore sinks to a new low....

He's blaming the Burmese cyclone on global warming...
Thirty days after Steve McIntyre caught NASA cooking climate history again - this time in a feeble attempt to somehow conceal the alarmist-embarrassing downward trend since 1998 -- Al Gore shamelessly portrayed Saturday's Myanmar cyclone catastrophe as a ‘consequence' of global warming.

A mere 16 days after NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory confirmed that the Pacific Decadal Oscillation's cool phase shift would likely bring colder temperatures for as many as the next 20-30 years, Gore told NPR that the "trend toward stronger and more destructive storms appears to be linked to global warming and specifically to the impact of global warming on higher ocean temperatures." This just 6 days after a German study also predicted cooler ocean temperatures due to the Meridional Overturning Circulation entering a weak cycle, and in spite of there being absolutely no empirical evidence of a global warming / storm strength link.

Gore's monotonous and baseless account of AGW forced violent cyclones and hurricanes came just two days after McIntyre reported that 4 of the past 5 months were "'all-time' records for Southern Hemisphere sea ice" levels.

I knew it was only going to be a matter of time before someone like the Goreacle or Fruitfly guy made a claim like that.

When one is altruistically driven, facts do not come into play. Although I think Gore is driven more by a personal financial goal than a moral one.

Al Gore talking about the cyclone is a big bag of wind commenting on a big bag of wind. Birds of a feather.

I just don't get where we get off attacking any government's conduct in the face of disaster after the Katrina debacle . . . it must come off as the height of hypocrisy to the rest of the world

From the Associated Press:

YANGON, Myanmar (AP) - Myanmar's junta seized U.N. aid shipments headed for hungry and homeless survivors of last week's devastating cyclone, prompting the world body to suspend further help on Friday.

The U.N. said the aid included 38 tons of high-energy biscuits and arrived in Myanmar on Friday on two flights from Bangladesh and the United Arab Emirates.

"All of the food aid and equipment that we managed to get in has been confiscated," U.N. World Food Program spokesman Paul Risley said. "For the time being, we have no choice but to end further efforts to bring critical needed food aid into Myanmar at this time."

Ryan can be in the "Hate America First" crowd, but his position doesn't hold water. The USA continues to be the most charitable country on the planet, with absolutely no expectation of repayment in any form.

If you're going to compare stealing aid and keeping it from those in need to the failure of Louisiana's city and state government, then you're smoking something.

As Anonymous pointed out, the fiasco during and post Katrina was at the local and state level. The federal response is supposed to be back-up to the other two, not first responder. Incidentally, it's been documented that more whites per capita than blacks died in The Big Easy so the common attempt to make it about racism is fraudulent. There was also a phenomenal and heart-warming effort by private enterprise like Walmart and private out-of-state citizens that got scanty covereage by our biased media.

The dithering white female Democrat state governor was replaced at the first opportunity by a real go-getter, Bobby Jindal (R). However, the inept black mayor who blamed everyone else but himself was re-elected by "chocolate city" as he termed New Orleans. If you elect incompetents, you get continued incompetence.

Ryan's kind of bizarre moral relativism, comparing slightly bruised apples to rotting maggot infested oranges as in the Myanmar junta demonstrates wilful blindness.

Were the American feds blocking and stealing foreign aid after Katrina? Give us a break!
