RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, I have something, we’re going to post this at RushLimbaugh.com immediately. The webmaster is waiting on it. Algore has a new book out. It’s called Our Choice: A Plan to Solve the Climate Crisis. And this book, according to our official climatologist here, Dr. Roy Spencer, University of Alabama at Huntsville, formerly of NASA, Dr. Spencer tells me that this Gore book is a metaphor for his twisting of reality to suit his needs. He took some NASA imagery of the earth and Photoshopped the following into it. And we’ve got a website here with both pictures: the original snapshot of the earth from NASA, and then the way Gore Photoshopped it. And here’s what’s on the picture that’s Photoshopped: four hurricanes that were not there. The hurricane closest to Florida is spinning in the wrong direction. The hurricane off of South America is almost on the equator, which is physically impossible for hurricanes. All of the sea ice in the Arctic Ocean is removed, but snow cover over Canada and Alaska remains. Cuba, in Gore’s Photoshopped picture of the earth, Cuba doesn’t exist. It is not there. Cuba is totally underwater, which would require a sea level rise of over 6,000 feet, which means Denver would be underwater as well. If Cuber is under water, so would be Denver! Now, half of the Greenland ice sheet is gone, but it’s out of the center; the thickest part, rather than around the edges, where it’s the thinnest. It’s a joke! This man is an absolute joke! He’s Photoshopped a picture of the earth.
RUSH: This is hilarious. This is from Der Spiegel. ‘Climatologists Baffled by Global Warming Time-Out.’ Right on the heels of Gore’s latest fraudulent… By the way, I wonder if the AP is going to assign 11 crackerjack reporters to fact-check Algore’s latest book, as they fact-checked Sarah Palin’s book. ‘Global warming appears to have stalled. Climatologists are puzzled as to why average global temperatures have stopped rising over the last 10 years. Some attribute the trend to a lack of sunspots, while others explain it through ocean currents.’ In other words, folks, they don’t know crap. None of their computer models predict this, did it? Their computers models all said: Oh, no, we’re all going to boil! Now there’s been a ten-year time-out, and they don’t know why. They are baffled. ‘At least the weather in Copenhagen is likely to be cooperating.
‘The Danish Meteorological Institute predicts that temperatures in December, when the city will host the United Nations Climate Change Conference, will be one degree above the long-term average. Otherwise, however, not much is happening with global warming at the moment. The Earth’s average temperatures have stopped climbing since the beginning of the millennium, and it even looks as though global warming could come to a standstill this year. Ironically, climate change appears to have stalled in the run-up to the upcoming world summit in the Danish capital, where thousands of politicians, bureaucrats, scientists, business leaders and environmental activists plan to negotiate a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. Billions of euros are at stake in the negotiations.’ Yes. Billions of euros are at stake, meaning who is going to get what from the slush fund that has been created ostensibly for cap and trade and to stop global warming. They’re all a bunch of crooks! No. I mean, Der Spiegel, they’re disappointed. This is not good news. It’s not good news to the crooks. Billions of euros hang in the balance!
