Al Gore may concur that that science is not settled!

This is absolutely unbelievable. It now appears that Mr. Al Gore, former Vice President of the United States and Nobel prize winner for his theories on global warming, may be stepping back from some of his strong beliefs.

Over the years I have been among those who focused most of all on CO2, and I think thats still justified, Gore told Newsweek . But a comprehensive plan to solve the climate crisis has to widen the focus to encompass strategies for all of the greenhouse culprits identified in the Nasa study.

I have not posted on this site for awhile as I was becoming disgruntled at the lack of real conversation that was happening on the subject. Believers in global warming seemed to be unwilling to acknowledge that there were some concerns about using computer model projections to drive massive and expensive changes in our economic and social structure. The worst among them even started to call people that had concerns names such as “Neanderthals” or “criminals” or worse. On the opposite side, those with doubts have not been able to layout a fairly consistent scientific description of the various natural phenomenon that were occurring in the world and offer proactive discussion to remedy changes.

Worse, neither side wants to do the truly difficult things in solving many of the energy problems that are occurring in the world. Everyone seems to have their head in the sand on the realities of energy and its importance in the world economy.

Maybe now that Mr. Gore appears to be pulling back from his “science is settled” hard line, I should re-join the discussion. Look for more posts in the future.

Below are the highlights of the article that I read that discusses this. You can read the entire discussion at Prison Planet.

Before we get too excited, Gore is not backing away from his support for the theory of man-made climate change, but his concession that carbon dioxide only accounted for 40% of warming according to new studies could seriously harm efforts to tax CO2, that evil, life-giving gas that humans exhale and plants absorb.

Gore acknowledged to Newsweek that the findings could complicate efforts to build a political consensus around the need to limit carbon emissions, reports BB News.

Gore now blames soot and methane for the majority of global warming, leaving the door open for a tax on livestock, a tax on meat, a tax on milk, and on and on until he changes his mind again and blames another culprit so that too can be taxed.

In another indictment of Gores accuracy in warning about climate change, he has now virtually abandoned scientific facts in favor of characterizing his Inconvenient Truth presentation in the context of a religious sermon.

Simply laying out the facts wont work, admits Gore.
