My, my, my… (h/t – GP Reader Peter Hughes)
Want to know why Nobel Laureate Al Gore likely doesn’t want to debate any of the myriad of scientists and politicians that have challenged him to such a tête-à-tête regarding his manmade global warming theories?
Could it possibly be because Gore was a terrible science student, and clearly never excelled at anything relating to what folks in Norway and in the media consider him to be so expert at?
The following was reported by the Washington Post on March 18, 2000 — and conveniently ignored by media ever since Gore began lecturing the world about subjects he practically flunked as a student! — in an article  marvelously titled “Gore’s Grades Belie Image of Studiousness” (h/t NBer dscott, and tangentially Greenie Watch ):
For all of Gore’s later fascination with science and technology, he often struggled academically in those subjects. The political champion of the natural world received that sophomore D in Natural Sciences 6 (Man’s Place in Nature) and then got a C-plus in Natural Sciences 118 his senior year.
Yet, this is the man liberals and dolts in the media are willing to bet their very lives on when it comes to complex scientific issues surrounding meteorology and climatology. On a regular basis, such folk have the nerve to suggest that Gore is more knowledgeable when it comes to these matters than scientists who have spent their entire lives studying and educating others at the finest colleges and universities around the world.
And just why should we believe Gore’s wild-eyed message of doom on
global warming climate change now? After all, it was Gore that said this too in 1998:
[T]his is a man [Saddam Hussein] who has used poison gas on his own people and on his neighbors repeatedly. He’s trying to get ballistic missiles, nuclear weapons, chemical and biological weapons. He could be a mass murderer of the first order of magnitude. We are not going to allow that to happen. We are going to win this confrontation.”
Why did Gore’s view change after he lost the 2000 Presidential Campaign and after 3,000 Americans died as the result of eight years of Gore-Clinton inaction against the growing worldwide Islamic terror threat?
Gore lied, trees will die.
