Goracle: 8.6 Million Fellow Warmists Followed My ManBearPig Marathon …Actual Number More Like 17,000
Al Gore announced that 8.6 million fellow global warmists tuned into his ManBearPig marathon last week. Unfortunately, once again, the the real number is closer to 17,000. It’s a consensus.
The Telegraph reported:
Not content with having invented the internet, the great Climate Science communicator Al Gore appears to have developed still more miraculous skills of late: the ability to turn 17,000 into 8.6 million – just like that.
The figures refer to the number of “views” for Gore’s special “24 Hours Of ManBearPig” which this column helped celebrate the other day. Gore claims that as many as 8.6 million flocked to his thrilling festival of climate fear; but a nasty cruel man called Charles the Moderator at Watts Up With That? has “done the math” and reckons the figure is probably more like 17,000. And that, he believes, is a generous estimate. (H/T John from CA).
So whom are we to trust? An evil climate denying website run by evil climate deniers? Or a loving family man who has selflessly made it his mission to travel the world acquiring as large a carbon footprint as possible in order to spread the word that we should all drastically reduce our carbon footprints?
I’m with Gore, obviously.
