Global temperatures 'have plunged .74°F since Gore released 'An Inconvenient Truth'


By Marc Morano  -  Climate Depot


The latest global averaged satellite temperature data for June 2009 reveals yet another drop in the Earth's temperature. This latest drop in global temperatures means despite his dire warnings, the Earth has cooled .74°F since former Vice President Al Gore released "An Inconvenient Truth" in 2006.

According to the latest data courtesy of "For the record, this month's Al Gore / 'An Inconvenient Truth' Index indicates that global temperatures have plunged approximately .74°F (.39°C) since 'An Inconvenient Truth' was released." (see satellite temperature chart here with key dates noted, courtesy of - The global satellite temperature data comes from the University of Alabama in Huntsville. Also see: 8 Year Downtrend Continues in Global Temps)

AIT-Index-7_09.jpgGore has not yet addressed the simple fact that global temperatures have dropped since the release of his global warming film. (Gore has also not addressed this: Another Moonwalker Defies Gore: NASA Astronaut Dr. Buzz Aldrin rejects global warming fears: 'Climate has been changing for billions of years' - Moonwalkers Defy Gore's Claim That Climate Skeptics Are Akin To Those Who Believe Moon Landing was 'Staged')

A record cool summer has descended upon many parts of the U.S. after predictions of the "year without a summer." There has been no significant global warming since 1995, no warming since 1998 and global cooling for the past few years.

In addition, New peer-reviewed scientific studies now predict a continued lack of global warming for up to three decades as natural climate factors dominate. (See: Climate Fears RIP...for 30 years!? - Global Warming could stop 'for up to 30 years! Warming 'On Hold?...'Could go into hiding for decades' study finds - - March 2, 2009 )

This means that today's high school kids being forced to watch Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth" - some of them 4 times in 4 different classes - will be nearly eligible for AARP (age 50) retirement group membership by the time warming resumes if these new studies turn out to be correct. (Editor's Note: Claims that warming will "resume" due to explosive heat in the "pipeline" have also been thoroughly debunked. See: Climatologist Dr. Roger Pielke Sr. 'There is no warming in the pipeline' )


I'm the GORE LIED blogger, and I love your cartoon! Do you mind if I use that on future editions of the Al Gore/AIT Index? - with a link to MFGW, of course.

Go right ahead I'd be honored, I actually did this cartoon a year ago but its even more true today.

and its M4GW

How much are you getting paid by the fossil fuel industry to spout your crap? Any body with a brain who can read KNOWS the reality of the problem. However much you're getting paid isn't worth it if the whole planet goes down the drain from enhanced green house effect (and it will if we don't do something about it--- immediately!) Get a brain; read, and stop running your stupid mouth!!

Nice work on the website elmer keep up the good work.

Cynthia, how much has your brain shrunk from watching Al Gore LIE to both the world and his own Congress. Get a clue. Earth has been around millions of years and simply goes through changes. The lefties tried the "global cooling" crap in the 70's but that didn't work so now they have shifted gears and coined "global warming".

Now why do you think Al Gore is investing heavily in the industries that stand to make a ton of dough off his false claims? Follow the money...honey.

Did you ever wonder why the Artic has frozen Mastodons? Because it was not always that if that is the case, why should the future be any different?

Mother Earth is going to do what ever it does and we have to live with it. Don't pollute the streams and forests and hope the volcanos' don't explode. Man's biggest enemy is what the earth can do to itself without any of our help.

This bit of graph covers from 1979 to 2009, a period of 30 years. We have been recording temperatures all over the world at ground level since the end of the 1800s. I would like to look at a graph that goes back 120 years! We also have some data on temperatures for various areas that goes back three hundred or more years, I would also be interesting in seeing those temperature readings on a graph as well. I am not sure how relavent the satelite recorded temperatures are in terms of surface temperatures, but I see nothing in the article or the referenced research that explains it, making it hard to judge how relavent this imformation is in the global warming controversy.

Unemployment is 9.5% in the US and higher elsewhere. Temps have come way off their highs, are normal on average and BELOW normal in some areas - in Boston we might not see 85 degrees this Summer.

But is the President more focused on the economy or the made-up problem of global warming? Answer: the made-up problem of global warming. Why? Because he has more support to raise taxes using that issue as an excuse. Well, at least for now he does, before people look around them, scratch their heads and wonder "where did global warming go?"

Satellite-measured temperatures have been around since 1979. When I accepted CO2-based global warming, I thought the surface-based temperatures were mostly reliable, but upon investigation, I reject that conclusion and suggest that we must focus on satellite temperatures. To be sure, we would expect temperatures to rise in the last 170 years as the LIA has lost its grip on the world. The retreating glaciers -- whose loss of ice was greater before CO2 concentrations "took off" -- confirm that the LIA is gone. (Physical evidence on every inhabited continent shows that a warmer world preceded the LIA, and vegetation has not yet caught up to MWP latitudes.) So we would expect temperatures to rise in the last 100+ years, independent of CO2 causation. Meanwhile, surface temperatures are contaminated by UHI, local siting issues, and inconsistent measuring devices -- the overwhelming effect has been a warming bias in measurement. (The CET in England stretches back hundreds of years, but in the 20th century was contaiminated by UHI.) Moreover, the methodology to develop surface temperature trends is very incredible -- incredible as in "not believeable." Individuals with known biases have been incredibly opportunistic in chilling historical temperatures and warming current temperatures. Skeptics are very much aware of the surface temperature record and would like everyone to really understand it.

Im sorry cynthia but youve got things backwards. The big industry powers are for cap and trade not against it. Big, established, business can always cope with regulation, taxes and other costs and ultimately regulation costs just get passed onto the consumer.

Smaller, up and coming, business have trouble coping with the regulations as they do not have an army of lawyers, tax consultants and large reserves of capital required to bypass or comply with.

Cap and trade will change the business landscape even more in favor large corporations.

The majority of the scientific community doesn't see any evidence that global warming is man made, this is a fact. Massive television propaganda and corporate reverse psychology do not change that fact.

Enviromental pollution on the other hand does exist and should be delt with. But dont confuse enviromental pollution with global warming.

Elmers webpage is full of verifiable information about this debate. Al gore's an inconveinent truth is not. Does anybody even trust al gore? Wasent he the slick ***hole that sold us nafta on larry king live in that debate against ross perot? Didn't everything that ross perot say would happen happen?

WOW! The more you think about it the more disturbed you will become reading what this Kyle Swanson 'expert'(he's an assistant professor...), said ( ), : "Cooling events since then had firm causes, like eruptions or large-magnitude La Ninas. This current cooling doesn't have one."

"Doesn't have one"? So... that means that in his eyes it must be a MIRACLE! ( )

HOW ARROGANT CAN A PERSON BE? The correct answer Kyle is that YOU DO NOT KNOW!!!!

Your models are WRONG!!! You have a LOT of work left to do because they do NOT explain what is happening. Is your damn EGO so huge that you cannot admit that? How does your head fit through the doorway?

So Kyle, if I may I be so bold so as to suggest a revision for you: "ALL climate events have firm causes, like eruptions or large-magnitude La Ninas or the PDO or the AMO or solar intensity or earth's wobble or earth's orbit or many other factors we have yet to discover. This current cooling has one too but we admit we do not have a clue."

Hey, at least you'll get extra points for rhyming!

It's mildly comical watching the carbonphobes continue their withering international "mind-screw" as data continues to pour in which contradicts their Gore inspired claims. To have originally claimed "the science is settled" did little more than awaken the scientific community, and now we see that no such settlement exists. Quite to the contrary, coarbonphobes have placed themselves on the fast track to "cultist" comparison with their religion inspired tactics, i.e. personal attacks, backs turned on the irrefutably observed... one would think you were discussing Christ with a Jehovahs Witness or Mormon. Carbonphobes should be thankful for the universal ignorance of politicians, for if this were truly a topic for scientists only, the topic would be a rapidly approaching non-issue. One of a hundred points: the earth was warmer 1,000 years ago than it is today. We know this, yet the carbonphobe will either refute these facts, which are supported by written documentation as well as scientific observation, or will simply not address it. Cult tactics. In the end, this is rapidly becoming politicians, activists and the media vs science. And as science becomes more sceptical, look for the slander and name calling to increase. This is the tool of the ignorant.

Cynthia's comment is priceless.

She KNOWS (her emphasis) that the whole planet is going down the drain. You are both stupid (stated) and evil (assumed by your obvious collusion with the fossil fuel industry).

How would one even begin to have a rational discussion with her?

Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense. - Buddha

Reason is what separates man from animal. Do not give up your one and only birth right to regurgitate what you saw on the news.

As for common sense, well I'm afraid that went out of style in the 1960's....

Cynthia Idi, there are a few things you forget in your rude reply to Marc Morano. You write:

"However much you're getting paid isn't worth it if the whole planet goes down the drain from enhanced green house effect (and it will if we don't do something about it--- immediately!) Get a brain; read, and stop running your stupid mouth!!"

As I show in my post here, the world is much more likely to "go down the drain" from not being warmed than the reverse. Am I right? Are you right? Only rational investigation will tell, but frankly, you have to be some sort of climate denialist to deny that our planet has been in a regular cycle of ice ages for 2.5 million years, and one is due or overdue now. As for your pathetic attack on Marc's source of funding, I added up the funding available from the Australian Federal Government alone over the past five years for AGW alarmism: 175 Million dollars. Now you find me that much funding for those trying to investigate the errors in AGW.

You suckers keep believing in Al's version of global warming while he tools around in his 100 foot diesel powered houseboat and roams around the palatial mansion him and his wife share and flys off to far away locations in his private jet. Your paying for it, by the way.

Just wait until this really fucks up and then all of you small headed retards that keep thinking that Global Warming and Environmental issues are not a reality, will be saying "Oops, we did it again." Go ahead and keep dreaming like Britney. Try putting on a gas mask and attach it to your gas-guzzler exhaust pipe and see what happens.(Hope you all do it, by the way) The same thing is happening worldwide! We are starting to choke on our own waste. I just can't wait until Oil is over, and the only thing running will be your blood being shed over water and food.

Great article, public reports and bloggers are definitely changing the landscape for news thats for sure.

Hey sweet blog, just wondering what spam application you use for comments because i get a ton on my blog.

Hey. Great blog. I've been searching around for blogs like this for a while, and I finally found the info I've been looking for!

Hello, I found your blog in a new directory of blogs. I dont know how your blog came up, must have been a typo, Your blog looks good. Have a nice day.

Hey very nice blog!! Man .. Beautiful .. Amazing .. I will bookmark your blog and take the feeds also...

I love Arabian men. They are sooo cute! X

just because al gore is completely wrong about global warming does not mean that there does not need to be a change in what you use for fuel...the fact of the matter is that we need to change our resources but the true cause of any climate change, which happens EVERYDAY by the way, is the sun...the sun which heats the earth is what causes any heat change...sun spots are proven to interfere with even television broadcasts and electrical currents so of course these super hot spots on the sun are what cause any extra heat that seem to be causing "global warming" which in truth is not happening...overall what im trying to say is that saying that fossil fuels are warming the earh is false but it is true that we need to find different means of fuel and energy because the waste is bad for the environment but it has no effect on the climate or how it changes

I use to submit my articles to like 400 places

Thank you for a great post

I’ve been interested by the comments I have read, all of which buying the book. I forgot the name of it, but I'll try to remember it.

Hi! I was surfing the net and found your blog post… nice! I love your blog. :) Cheers! Melissa. G.

Hey I would like to find out where you found this blog template from I like it!

One good book is one exercise for readers. Your site is one exercise for searchs in Internet.
