Al Gore Quietly Backs Off From a Lie

Posted by Dave Blount at February 25, 2009 7:55 AM

Here's a surprise — it looks like Al Gore is backing off from one of the lies that constitute his lucrative global warming hype fests.

Former Vice President Al Gore is removing a dramatic slide in his global warming presentation. The New York Times reports Gore used a graph from a disaster research center in Brussels to illustrate that human-driven climate change is, "creating weather-related disasters that are completely unprecedented."
But the Center for Research on the Epidemiology of Disasters, which came up with the raw data, says no such direct correlation can be proven: "Justifying the upward trend in hydro-meteorological disaster occurrence and impacts essentially through climate change would be misleading. Climate change is probably an actor in this increase but not the major one… We need to be cautious when interpreting disaster data… and remain objective scientific observers."

But don't expect him to trim out the rest of the documented lies. That would leave him with no props, and nothing to say as he huffs and puffs and waves his arms.

The Goracle will still wear his sandwich board.
