If he were anything but a darling of the liberal elite, Al Gore would have been pounded long ago about the con man he is. Like any good con, though, he keeps it on for as long as his dupes allow.
How can he go wrong, after all, when he can attribute every major weather event - cold or hot - to climate change (aka global warming)?
"As it turns out, the scientific community has been addressing this particular question for some time now, and they say increased heavy snowfalls are completely consistent with what they have been predicting as a consequence of man-made global warming," Gore writes in a blog post.
Not even Bernie Matoff could boast a scam like that.
At least there are those who are willing to inject counter claims to climate change hysteria:
"If one actually studies the history of weather over the last 2,000 years, you see massive storms, amazing heat, brutal cold waves, devastating droughts, terrible floods and disastrous hurricanes -- none caused by global warming," [meteorologist Art horn] told FoxNews.com.
Some scientists continue to point out that the longer long-term trend found in ice core data shows that the Earth has already undergone several cycles of warming more extreme than at present (perhaps as recently as the ninth century).
With Al Gore around, though, the con is still on.
