Al Gore photoshops fake climate change catastrophe

If your present career is based on a phony theory, and the earth does not cooperate by continuing to get warmer while the CO2 levels continue to rise, what do you do to make a visual impression on people, whom you wish to stampede in favor of your theory?

You doctor up a fake photo that shows the world as you imagine it will be.

In Gore's face version, a typhoon from the Southern hemisphere is put in the Northern hemisphere. There is a problem with that--it is rotating in the wrong direction! No such storm ever rotated that way in the Northern hemisphere in real life.

Gore's fake picture locates another one on the Equator. No, that never happens, either. The forces that cause storm rotation north or south are at equilibrium at the Equator. Perhaps you've heard of the doldrums: wind-sail ships used to sometimes stall near the Equator, where there might not be enough wind energy to move them for days at a time.

Notice that Cuba vanishes entirely on Planet Gore. He is imagining that the oceans have risen to the point that Cuba is underwater. The highest point in Cuba is Pico Turquino at 2,005 meters above sea level. So, in Gore's picture, the oceans have risen over 6000 feet!shocked_yellowshocked_yellowshocked_yellow

Should anyone listen to this man?

Is it OK to use "artistic license" in exaggerating the imagined effects? Or is it wrong? Or does the problem lie only in the exaggerations being done so badly as to be impossible?

Clutching at straws, I'd say.
