Albert Gore's Junk Science

Albert Gore, Jr., ex-Vice President of the United States has a campaign to save the Earth from you and me. His new movie is based on - - - Predictions 100 years in the future by the same scientists who cannot predict the weather tomorrow. According to the Washington Post, TCSDaily is "the online clearinghouse for anti-global-warming punditry." Dr. Roy Spencer has questions for AlGore, I mean, Albert Gore, Jr. For example:
1) Why did you make it look like hurricanes, tornadoes, wildfires, floods, droughts, and ice calving off of glaciers and falling into the ocean, are only recent phenomena associated with global warming? You surely know that hurricane experts have been warning congress for many years that the natural cycle in hurricanes would return some day, and that our built-up coastlines were ripe for a disaster (like Katrina, which you highlighted in the movie)...
2) Why did you make it sound like all scientists agree that climate change is manmade and not natural? You mentioned a recent literature review study that supposedly found no peer-reviewed articles that attributed climate change to natural causes (a non-repeatable study which has since been refuted....I have a number of such articles in my office!)
See also: Dr. Roy Balling's "An Inconvenient Truth Indeed." Junk Science.com is counting the days since Albert Gore, Jr. offered to facilitate a debate between the environmental scientists who support versus question the conclusions of hunman-caused global warming. 4 months, 3 weeks, 4 days and counting. See The Real Inconvenient Truth there. He has some excellent graphics.
