He is, but he is also pretty amazing. He is a self made Youtube star. That's pretty great. Wasn't that long ago that gifted people like him were locked up in closets.

So I guess it would be considered politically incorrect of me, to suggest that maybe that's where he should be. :biggrin:

But Al Gore told us that after 2013, there would be no snow. Was Al Gore lying, and is global warming a hoax to make him and many others rich at our expense? Is Trudeau's push to tax us into poverty in the name of trying to control Mother Nature's climate just more of Gore's lie?

The science is settled: some days it snows, some days it's warm out.

Frankie knows way more than Al Gore will ever know about the weather and climate.

P.S. The snow storm absolutely hammered the BC coast and spilled over into the dry side of the mountains. My mom had 50 cm at her place, and she lives in one of the driest places in BC. Her neighbours 10 km to the west had over 2 feet. 10 km to the east of her only had 3 inches.

Yup, but it's very close to the mountains, so once in a while you get spill over. This is up the Chilcotin. It's similar to Princeton in that it's one of the driest places in BC, drier on average in fact than Kelowna, but every once in a while Princeton will get spillover, giving it a huge snowfall that Kelowna could never get because it's so close to the Cascade mountains. That's why Princeton can get over 40cm of snow in a single day while Kelowna has never had more than 26cm in a single day.

Similarly, Kleena Kleene, near my mom's place, is drier on average than Osoyoos, and yet can get up to 63cm of snow in a single day. Even though Williams Lake is at the same latitude and elevation and significantly wetter, it's too far east to get these huge spillover events.

Nope you don't understand climate or science. Facts are not clear and the fact that NO Island in the entire world is having any sea level rise is proof the "science" is wrong. The "science" predicted many islands were to be uninhabitable by now. Yet data shows no difference from decades ago when all the lies by the eco terrorists were made about flooded islands, harbours and shorelines. But keep on drinking the eco terrorist koolaid as they are not lying about anything, well except for every prediction that they, the liars, have made. Every prediction has not come to fruition. Not 1 doomsday lie has ever come true. Not 1. Just keep changing the timeline. That is not science. If the predictions do not occur the then the science is wrong. Very simple.
Why use a big word when a diminutive one will suffice.

The facts are equally clear that you don't understand climate or science. The reality is the only sure thing is that climate does change as evidenced by science. To suggest that given the info available, that it is anthro derived is rather naive and narcissistic.
To suggest a change in a miniscule component of our atmosphere such as co2 is going to become an extinction event is a fear mongering tactic.
Instead of fearing a rather benign and very gradual change in climate, that is well documented by ice core samples dating hundreds of thousands of years, and easily adapted to on the timeline it will progress on, people should be far more concerned about what causes an ice age and what precipitates that. That is unknown. It is not even known how fast it comes on.
IMO, when we can definitely understand what has caused ice ages, then and only then will I believe that our miniscule carbon footprint compares to the global output of the energy and co2 output of every forest fire on the planet as well as a cpl of volcanic eruptions.
If you climate change fear mongers want an extinction event to latch onto.......fear ice age and what causes it cuz right now, our co2 output is about as significant to climate change as eating a bean burrito and farting in the middle of a herd of a 1000 methane gas passing cows. The climate is changing as it always has over millenia. Just not for the reasons you have bought into a la the Suzuki Science of Propaganda that jets all over the world selling books to the gullible while buying multi multi million dollar homes that are hardly carbon neutral. Can you folks not realize he is the guy with the flute you are blindly following and the Emperor actually does have clothes?
Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard.

Climate change is what happens over decades. And over decades the climate is getting warmer.
It is difficult nay, impossible for any human to detect .5 degrees range over 10 years but that is what we are looking at. The fact that winter is colder this year than last is meaningless. What you look at is how much warmer it is now than 20 years ago and how much warmer it will be in 30 or 50 years. That is climate.

Al Gore is slowly being proven correct. His timeline might have been incorrect but everything he predicted is happening.
The seas are rising. The ice caps are shrinking. (yes Donald there is less ice year after year. The glaciers are melting. The facts all point to slow and inexorable climate change. And yes,last year was very cold in Kelowna. It was also another global record for heat.

No he's not. Al Gore is a lying *bleep*. But a rich lying *bleep*, thanks to all the suckers that have bought into the AGW hoax he helped create. Congrats suckers!
