What’s going on?
Despite the snow and frigid temperatures in much of the U.S., Al Gore can explain why extremely cold weather is just more evidence of climate change. He tweeted an article that describes this winter’s unusually low temperatures as “an example of precisely the sort of extreme winter weather we expect because of climate change.”
What's the climate change activist's theory?
Climate scientist Dr. Michael Mann says this year’s intense winter is an example of “extreme” weather influenced by climate change.
“What we were witnessing play out is in fact very much consistent with our expectations of the response of weather dynamics to human-caused climate change,” the article explained.
Pat and Jeffy were skeptical about this theory on today’s show. It seems pretty, ahem, convenient that Gore can use every kind of weather to prove that climate change is real.
“’It is so hot that it actually circled completely around back to cold,’” Pat jokingly paraphrased Gore’s tweet.
