Much of America suffered a huge snowstorm this week, and former Vice President Al Gore blamed it on global warming. Hmm. Ernest Istook, a distinguished fellow at The Heritage Foundation and former Republican congressman from Oklahoma, took issue with Gore in a humorous vein.
“Blame it on global warming,” Istook writes on Politico. “If you lose your job, blame global warming. If your boyfriend bugs out, blame global warming. If your kids set the house on fire, blame global warming. If the cashier gives you the wrong change, blame global warming.”
In a more serious vein, he writes, “It’s nothing new for Al Gore to claim that global warming (or should we call it global cremation?) is causing cold weather instead of hot. He already admitted that he was wrong to tout ethanol, but did it for political purposes. His latest comments are just as consistent.”
