    From Drudge:

    Al Gore is scheduled before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Wednesday morning to once again testify on the ‘urgent need’ to combat global warming.

    But Mother Nature seems ready to freeze the proceedings.

    A ‘Winter Storm Watch’ has been posted for the nation’s capitol and there is a potential for significant snow… sleet… or ice accumulations.”

    Interestingly, this isn’t the first time something like this has happened to the former VP:

    With a near-record low temperature and single-digit wind chill in New York City, former Vice President Al Gore took to the podium in Manhattan’s Beacon Theater today to blasted President Bush for contributing to ‘global warming’”

      The problem with Al Gore is people are still listening to him! As I have stated before, Al Gore is a politician, not a scientist. He claims scientific consensus but scientists do not work with consensus, they work with theories and facts. Most of the things that Al Gore claims cannot be scientifically proved, either.

      Al Gore's entire campaign against Global Warming is simply a way to get money, nothing more – nothing less!

      I've lived in the Southern U. S. all of my 48 years.– {Tx./1960-1983} {La./1983-1987} {Fla./1987-2002}.I currently reside in Oklahoma. I can honestly say that the temperature cycles appear to be about the same in length, if not getting longer, and the temperature seems to be lower during the "peak/middle" of winter months. I find difficult to understand how someone can agree with all that the environmentalist's are claiming.

      This amazing place we call "Earth" has experienced some extremely harsh winters since I been on it.

      We need to ask ourselves, is this about money and control{tax dollars}. Have we really damaged this Great World we live on, let alone, this Great Country?

      I doubt it!!!!!

      God Bless,

      For one thing, global warming does not exist. It is clear the president is aware or he would've considered the findings and results of reputable, renown, HONEST scientists. For another, it doesn't take a scientist, although it may be unknown to Al Gore, to know wind and solar are intermittent as man cannot control nature, which makes wind and solar inefficient. A waste to consider, period. But as this government of this country continues to waste our money purchasing IMPORTS of these materials with any and all costs for these inefficient, with little effect at its best, energy source is just one out of how much more wasted in the hands of the incompetent, inept, dangerous intellect of this government? Drill, baby drill! = Jobs, baby jobs! PRODUCTIVITY AND PROSPERITY. Any employment to do with global warming is make-work.

      1st line- For one thing, MAN-MADE global warming does not exist.

      Last sentence- Any employment to do with MAN-MADE global warming is make-work.
