Self-proclaimed climate expert Al Gore says the scientific community believes the extreme weather is Â“completely consistentÂ” with their global warming predictions. He also believes that a global rise in temperature is responsible for hotter dry spells, colder winters, and more violent storms.
The Nobel Prize winner is not convincing climate-change skeptics, though. Dr. William Briggs, a statistician and climate scientist, takes issue with GoreÂ’s statement. He says, Â“HeÂ’s saying that anything bad that happens must be because global warming caused it. Activists like Gore are great at identifying events after the fact as being caused by global warming, but terrible at predicting them beforehand.Â” Â Meteorologist Art Horn agrees, saying that Â“Gore has no appreciation for large natural variability in weather.Â”
Â Meteorologist told Fox News that Â“ItÂ’s not hard at all to get temperatures cold enough for snow in a world experiencing global warming. There will still be colder than average winters in a world that is experiencing warming with plenty of opportunities for snow.Â”
Remember the warnings about entering an ice-age in the 1970s? It seems that dire global predictions of cooling and warming of this planet do support one theory. Climate changes.
