(National Sentinel)Â Climate ‘Change’: Former Vice President Al Gore, better known in recent years for his climate activism, has endorsed the view of a scientist who believes that bitter cold temperatures the country is experiencing this year is part of the “climate crisis.”
Weighing in on theÂ record cold and snow in the U.S. â€œItâ€™s bitter cold in parts of the US, but climate scientist Dr. Michael Mann explains thatâ€™s exactly what we should expect from the climate crisis,â€ Gore wrote on January 4 on Twitter.

As noted byÂ Climate Depot, GoreÂ linked to one of his organizationsâ€™ articles on the brutal winter weather written by Climategate professor Michael Mann: The Climate Reality Project:Â A â€˜PERFECT STORMâ€™: EXTREME WINTER WEATHER, BITTER COLD, AND CLIMATE CHANGE.
In the article, Mann linked the cold and â€œlotsÂ of snowâ€ to â€œclimate change.â€
The Gore-endorsed article and research differs greatly from the former vice president’s recent views on climate, snowfall, and bitter cold temperatures.
In his 2006 Oscar-winning documentary, “An Inconvenient Truth,” he didn’t warn of record cold temperatures and increasing snowfalls as a consequence of human-caused global warming/climate change.
As recently as 2009, Gore hyped the lack of snow as further evidence of human-caused global warming.
Goreâ€™s Oscar-winning documentaryÂ An Inconvenient Truth did not warn of record cold and increasing snowfalls as a consequence of man-made global warming. And as recently as 2009, Gore was hyping the lack of snow as evidence for man-made global warming.
“The Arctic ecosystem, the world’s glaciers, indeed the entire cryosphere is at risk if we don’t cut the pollution that causes global warming,” warned Gore.
The cryosphere refers toÂ the Earth’s ice and snow cover.
“This is disturbing news,” added Norwegian Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr StÃ¸re.Â “The world’s leaders must reach an agreement that ensures dramatic cuts in emissions of greenhouse gases.”
Other climatologists and meteorologists criticized Gore’s hype.
“This is flat out insanity and deception now to tell the public that events that have occurred countless times before with no climate change attribution, is now just that, is not science, its witchcraft. NO PROOF AT ALL. Its climate ambulance chasing, nothing more,” saidÂ WeatherBell Meteorologist Joe Bastardi on Twitter.

He added: “This has happened countless times before and it wasnâ€™t global warming then and is not now. Solid use of past patterns predicted major early cold from OCTOBER! I have tweeted that dozens of times showing the analog years I used, No co2 then.â€
Climatologist Dr. Roger Pielke Sr. further explained on Twitter,Â â€œFor those who claim USA/Canada norâ€™easter is stronger because of â€˜global warmingâ€™, they apparently do not realize that itâ€™s so strong because of especially strong horizontal temperature gradient in troposphere. It â€˜bombedâ€™ because of usually cold air!â€
For those who claim USA/Canada nor'easter is stronger because of "global warming", they apparently do not realize that its so strong because of especially strong horizontal temperature gradient in troposphere. It "bombed" because of usually cold air! https://t.co/Lor2i47fC0
