Gore clears carbon dioxide of most blame

by Andrew Bolt

This is big. Al Gore is now saying carbon dioxide isn’t actually to blame for most of the warming we saw until 2001:

Gore explored new studies – published only last week – that show methane and black carbon or soot had a far greater impact on global warming than previously thought. Carbon dioxide – while the focus of the politics of climate change – produces around 40% of the actual warming. Gore acknowledged to Newsweek that the findings could complicate efforts to build a political consensus around the need to limit carbon emissions.

Which suggests not only that was Gore wrong to claim the science was “settled”, but that the hugely expensive schemes to “stop” warming by slashing carbon dixoide emissions will be less than half as effective as claimed.

Tim Blair isn’t surprised that Gore now says he’s switching from appealing to facts to appealing to faith. Well, actually, Tim is surprised, since facts actually have never been Gore’s thing.

I don’t know if you will see this in any American papers, this is from the Herald Sun in Australia. Earlier this week Gore was interviewed by Diane Sawyer on GMA and he professed to not know about any methane studies, perhaps he CAN learn.

Go read it all.
