Has anyone seen Al Gore this winter?

No sign of him anywhere in the mainstream media.

I think after the summer thaw we will find him under some snowbank.

Speaking of things that you aren’t seeing in the mainstream media

Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli has been taking the University of Virginia to court to get information on a climate change researcher who once worked at the school.

Now several members of the State Assembly say they’ve had enough and have introduced legislation to rein in Cuccinelli’s investigation.

Cuccinelli, a global warming skeptic, is looking into whether UVA professor Michael Mann manipulated data to show that there has been a rapid, recent rise in the Earth’s temperature.

Nor have you seen this:

Dr Benny Peiser and Dr David Whitehouse, of the Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF), have written to John Hirst, chief executive of the beleaguered Met Office, asking for an explanation of a press release issued by his organisation on January 20 and headed “2010 – a near record year”. This won headlines by claiming that last year was hotter than any other in the past decade.

When the two men examined the original data from which this claim was derived – compiled by the University of East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit and the Met Office’s Hadley Centre – it clearly showed 2010 as having been cooler than 2005 (and 1998) and equal to 2003. It emerged that, for the purposes of the press release, the data had been significantly adjusted.

Pay no attention to the people behind the curtain.

Or This:

TWO inquiries into claims that scientists manipulated data about global warming were yesterday condemned by MPs as ineffective and too secretive.

Nah nothing to see here.

    Heh….Al’s vanishing act is all the more cowardly when you realize — of course — that if we were having a warm, dry and sunny winter here in the Northeast US or in Europe, as he predicted, he would be aaaaallllllll over the place talking up how right he was….
