Furthermore, the genuinely peer-reviewed material cited by the IPCC amounts to several thousand studies. Simple arithmetic indicates that only a fraction could possibly have appeared in the world’s leading journals.

The inability of power companies to meet demand is almost exclusively a consequence of the Obama administration’s publicly stated goal to bankrupt the coal industry and in turn ram through the de-industrialization of America under the guise of the phony global warming mantra.
Gore also indicated that he believes a rise in global temperatures is creating “all sorts of havoc,” from hotter dry spells to colder winters and ever more violent storms. This is even endangering certain species of animals and leading to forest fires and floods.
