An Inconvenient Award
Posted by Nancy on March 7, 2009
Al Gore received the first Roger Revelle Award yesterday, for leaders whose outstanding contributions “advance or promote research in ocean, climate, and earth sciences.”
John Coleman, founder of the Weather Channel and big global warming skeptic, prepared a video for the occasion. It can be found at Coleman’s Corner. (It’s more than worth following the link to see the Goracle once again held up to the light of day.)
To celebrate the 100th birthday of the late Dr. Roger Revelle, the oceanography institute he once directed is today presenting an award in his name to his most famous disciple – Al Gore. And, while this charlatan should never seriously be considered for any scientific tribute, the specific intent of this one makes Gore a particularly unworthy maiden recipient, and he knows it.

What could make Al Gore so undeserving of an award in honor of his mentor?
Revelle recanted his belief in CO2 as a source of global warming and publicly apologized for sending so many people in the wrong direction several years before he died.
Of course, that didn’t matter to Gore, who promptly declared Revelle senile. He later went to great efforts to discredit Revelle, to claim he had been coerced, and even to file a defamation lawsuit against another scientist who co-authored an article denouncing CO2 as a cause of AGW with Revelle.
Enjoy your ill-deserved award, Mr. Gore, and may it continue to snow and sleet on days your followers hold rallies.
