Al Gore got a D grade in Natural Sciences at Harvard:
For all of Gore’s later fascination with science and technology, he often struggled academically in those subjects. The political champion of the natural world received that sophomore D in Natural Sciences 6 (Man’s Place in Nature) and then got a C-plus in Natural Sciences 118 his senior year.
When John C. Davis, a retired teacher and assistant headmaster at St. Albans, was recently shown his illustrious former pupil’s college board achievement test scores, he inspected them closely with a magnifier and shook his head, chuckling quietly at the science results.
“Four eighty-eight! Terrible” Davis declared upon inspecting the future vice president’s 488 score (out of a possible 800) in physics.
“Hmmmm. Chemistry. Five-nineteen. He didn’t do too well in chemistry.”
But that was then. This is now: He thinks that the Earth’s interior temperature is several million degrees:
Al Gore: It definitely is, and it’s a relatively new one. People think about geothermal energy — when they think about it at all — in terms of the hot water bubbling up in some places, but two kilometers or so down in most places there are these incredibly hot rocks, ’cause the interior of the earth is extremely hot, several million degrees, and the crust of the earth is hot …
FYI, the Earth’s core is about 5400 degrees Celsius or 9800 degrees Fahrenheit, neither of which approaches even 1% of Gore’s Bizarro World figure. But it’s okay, he’s only off by about 990,000 degrees or more. Say’s a lot about his grasp of global temperature fluctuations, hmm?
Our Sun, however, is 13.6 million Celsius or 24.5 million degrees Fahrenheit at its hottest. With a grasp of temperature measurements like this, maybe that’s why Gore keeps thinking the planet is catching fire even though even the BBC admits there has been no warming in 11 years!
But remember, global warming that will doom humanity is real and factual. Real I tell you, factual!!!
We must all stop global warming now!!!! (Or backdated to 11 years before we start trying to stop it now.)
