Al Gore Continues to Embarrass Himself

As can be expected, Al Gore's "No Tragedy Left Unexploited" policy continues. No sooner had the devastation in Myanmar hit the world press before Big Al was blaming it on global warming.

Unfortunately, as is so often the case, the facts seldom support his assertions. A review of the deadliest cyclones in history compiled at The Weather Underground show this one isn't even in the top ten. More importantly two of the Top Ten occured back in the 1970s, in the throes of the last eco-nut induced scare over global cooling.

Earth to Al: Instead of spending $300M on televised scaremongering, allocate some of it to doing some research so you don't have to continually suck on those size 12 loafers.
