    If ANY of the "environmentalist" whackos predictions over the years had come true, I might be inclined to take them more seriously. They've been making 10-20 year predictions for 40-50 years (at least)...and NOT ONE has ever come true.

    Al Gore isn't a scientist. Climate scientists have a very good track record.

    So going with your claim of a power grab, what is the end game of it? Nobody can deny how fossil fuels changed the world but to use the phrase 'wacky science' as you did, well it takes a large amount of cognitive dissonance to say it's wacky while using what it has given us.

    For some weather data.

    Not even refering to Al Gore. In the 70's they were scared of a coming ice age (that never happened). When the Alaska pipeline was being built, they were saying it would decimate the caribou population (which has flourished). There hasn't been one single prediction that has come true. If that's your idea of "a very good track record", I'd hate to see what an abject failure looks like.

    I know quite a bit about weather. You guys told me it's different than climate. Could you dispute my real life observations instead of linking me to more propaganda.

    I'm saying the pole fluctuations aren't causing climate change
    Here's some info on the moving pole.
    Why does the North Pole move?

    Weather is short term, climate is long term. Anecdotes are not evidence. If you consider something that conflicts with your own beliefs to be propaganda, then I have nothing more to say to you

    There's a short animation that shows the predictions and dates vs the actual data.

    Well, the ice caps are melting, and they are also growing in other areas. I could look at only the area that's melting and claim we are in trouble.
