 Global Warming is Causing This Phenomenal Snowing
Al Gore, the former vice president of the US, has said that the record-breaking snow is not an indication that global warming is a hoax, rather it is just another sign of creeping climate change.

"Just as it's important not to miss the forest for the trees, neither should we miss the climate for the snowstorm," Gore wrote in an Op-Ed for The New York Times.

"The heavy snowfalls this month have been used as fodder for ridicule by those who argue that global warming is a myth," he acknowledged.

"Yet scientists have long pointed out that warmer global temperatures have been increasing the rate of evaporation from the oceans," he wrote.

That puts "significantly more moisture into the atmosphere - thus causing heavier downfalls of both rain and snow," he added.

Gore blames shortsighted politicians and profit-obsessed corporations for the increasing global warming.

Nations spew 90 million tons of global-warming pollution into the air every 24 hours, "as if it were an open sewer," according to Gore.

He argues that the market isn't going fix this problem. "Politicians have to pass tough new laws," he said.

He backed legislation coming up this week in the Senate that would cap carbon emissions.

"It would be an enormous relief if the recent attacks on the science of global warming actually indicated that we do not face an unimaginable calamity requiring large-scale, preventive measures to protect human civilization," he wrote.

"But the evidence says otherwise," he insisted.

wrong. It's Al Gore that is making money off it. for every green job there are 2 in the industry that are lost. 9 of the points in Al Gore's "documentary" an inconvenient truth have been PROVEN to be false. Please don't buy into it so easily. 30,000 sicentists want to sue him. the climate is ALWAYS changing so it's the perfect excuse to set up a global carbon tax and setup a carbon trading derivitives market. WAKEUP! what about climategate? leaked emails
