It appears Al Gore is going to persist in seeking attention, and in the anti-capitalist environmentalist movement he has found an audience willing to adore him. His desire for some absolute certainty has lead him to embraced a mythological story lacking the spatial and temporal perspective of reality.
SCIENCE: Milankovitch Cycles: Milankovitch cycles are cycles in the Earth's orbit that influence the amount of solar radiation striking different parts of the Earth at different times of year. They are named after a Serbian mathematician, Milutin Milankovitch, who explained how these orbital cycles cause the advance and retreat of the polar ice caps. Although they are named after Milankovitch, he was not the first to link orbital cycles to climate. Adhemar (1842) and Croll (1875) were two of the earliest.
AL GORE: “We must make the rescue of the environment the central organizing principle for civilization.”
SCIENCE: Milankovitch Cycles: Variations in the Earth's eccentricity, axial tilt, and precession comprise the three dominant cycles, .... Taken in unison, variations in these three cycles creates alterations in the seasonality of solar radiation reaching the Earth's surface. These times of increased or decreased solar radiation directly influence the Earth's climate system, thus impacting the advance and retreat of Earth's glaciers.
AL GORE: “Now, I have felt in times past that we were close to a tipping point, and I've been wrong. I don't think I am wrong this time.”
SCIENCE: The Heliosphere Isn't Spherical: As the 28-year-old Voyagers 1 and 2 spacecraft approach the edge of interstellar space, they have found that the heliosphere, the "bubble" within which the sun dominates, bulges outward in the northern hemisphere and is pressed inward in the south. Voyager 1, flying about 34 degrees north of the equator, crossed the termination shock and entered the outermost layer of the heliosphere about 9 billion miles from the sun. Meanwhile Voyager 2, about 26 degrees south of the equator, finds that the shock may be nearly a billion miles closer to the sun.
AL GORE: “The atmosphere is like a coat of varnish around the globe. When it's thin, as it should be, heat naturally escapes. But when it gets thicker, thanks to carbon dioxide emitted by us, it traps in the heat and the world gets warmer. It's cooking and wilting the most vulnerable parts of the eco-system, melting all the mountain glaciers, the north polar ice cap, parts of Antarctica, parts of Greenland.”
SCIENCE: The Trajectory of the Solar System: Another [theory] put forth by Walter Cruttenden of The Binary Research Institute is that local gases are fairly uniform and the shape derives from the trajectory of the solar system through local space – possibly in its orbit around a companion star. While this latter explanation is far more speculative, it is not unlikely that local interstellar gases are relatively homogeneous and therefore the shape of the heliosphere may be at least partially due to motion of the solar system.
AL GORE: "This could literally end civilization."
SCIENCE: Binary Companion Theory: Moreover, a binary orbit motion of our sun provides a solution to a number of solar system formation theory enigmas including angular momentum. For these reasons, BRI has concluded our sun is most likely part of a long cycle binary system.
AL GORE: “We have to act together to solve this global crisis. Our ability to live is what is at stake.”
Man made global warming is a false myth. Catastrophic global warming is a false myth. Al Gore is a mediocre child of privilege, flattered into fronting for individuals using politicized research disguised as science to promote a political agenda. By the way Al, carbon dioxide doesn’t make the atmosphere “thick”. It does, however, make life on Earth possible.
