I have predicted that same thing for a while now.  Al Gore is raking in the bucks on this hoax and idiots are willing to let him do it. Do facts matter to these people??

Al Gore And Climate Ka-Ching

Junk Science: Al Gore blames the Burma tragedy on global warming despite growing evidence to the contrary. Could the hype be related to his financial interests?

Gore’s reaction to the death and destruction caused by a cyclone ravaging Burma was to utter an emphatic “I told you so” Tuesday on National Public Radio. In an interview on NPR’s “Fresh Air” broadcast, the jolly green giant made the charge while talking about the paperback release of his ironically named book, “The Assault on Reason.”

Ignoring the fact that the rising death toll is due in part to an incompetent, isolationist and authoritarian government that allows most of its people to live in shanty towns of tin and bamboo, Gore claimed that “we’re seeing consequences that scientists have long predicted might be associated with continued global warming.”
In other words, people die in Rangoon because of an SUV in Richmond, Va.

There’s a “trend toward more Category 5 storms,” Gore claimed, and this trend “appears to be linked to global warming and specifically to the impact of global warming on higher ocean temperatures in the top couple of hundred feet in the ocean, which drives convection energy and moisture into these storms and makes them more powerful.”

Except, as we recently noted, the trend in the world’s oceans – as shown by measurements taken by a fleet of 3,000 high-tech ocean buoys first deployed in 2003 – is toward cooling. As Dr. Josh Willis, of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, noted in a separate interview with National Public Radio, “there has been a very slight cooling” over the buoys’ five years of observation.

As Joseph D’Aleo, the Weather Channel’s first director of meteorology, told National Review Online’s Deroy Murdock that the slight warming trend “peaked in 1998, and the temperature trend the last decade has been flat, even as CO2 has increased 5.5%. Cooling began in 2002.” He added: “Ocean buoys have echoed that slight cooling since the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration deployed them in 2003.”

In fact, Ryan Maue of Florida State University’s Center for Ocean-Atmosphere Prediction Studies says 2007 “will rank as a historically inactive tropical cyclone year for the Northern Hemisphere as a whole.”
In the past 30 years, Maue adds, only 1977 had less hurricane activity from January through October. Last September had the lowest activity since 1977 while the Octobers of 2006 and 2007 had the lowest activity since 1976 and 1977, respectively.

So why the hype? Well, global warming is a growth industry designed to keep Earth and some bank accounts green.
Gore himself joined the venture capital group, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers just last September. On May 1, the firm announced a $500 million investment in maturing green technology firms called the Green Growth Fund.
The group announced another $700 million to be invested over the next three years in green-tech startup firms. But if the green technology business, uh, cools down, there will be no return on that investment.

There would be no need for such investments if global warming wasn’t a threat. So Gore just launched, among other things, a $300 million on an ad campaign to convince us it is so.

Speaking at a conference in Monterey, Calif., on March 1, the former vice president admitted to having “a stake” in a number of green investments into which he recommended attendees put money rather than “subprime carbon assets” such as tar sands and shale oil. He also is co-founder and chairman of Generation Investment Management, which sells carbon offsets that allow rich polluters to continue polluting with a clear conscience.
We have a prediction all our own – that disastrous global warming will not occur. Then the greenies will take credit for preventing it and ask us if we’re glad we spent trillions in fighting it. Al Gore will be laughing all the way to the bank.
