Did Al Gore get Frozen Out when Presenting His Speech on Global Warming at Harvard University?

Did Al Gore plan on the freezing temperatures at Harvard this week as he presents his speech on Global Warming? Note, the speech was presented on Wednesday night, the coldest night in zip code 02138 so far this week.

Was snow forcasted on Wednesday night? The forecast for Greater Boston from Sunday looked even more dramatic. Al Gore’s speech was on Wednesday. Click Here to see that on Sunday, they actually predicted snow for Wednesday. That didn’t happen, after all.

From the Reference Frame:

A reader using the “trademark” of the Office of the President of Harvard University informed us about a hilarious event in Cambridge, MA, namely the Harvard Sustainability Celebration: green is the new crimson

If they can change the color of the Harvard logo so easily, maybe their planet is also green, not blue, after all.
The Harvard College Democrats ask why the “reduce reuse recycle rethink” posters are 4 times larger than the previous record holders.

But they are kind of obliged to be happy about the keynote speaker, Mr Al Gore, who is famous for his big house, jet, and the so-called Gore effect. Dictionaries explain the term as:

The phenomenon that leads to unseasonably cold temperatures, driving rain, hail, or snow whenever Al Gore visits an area to discuss global warming. Hence, the Gore Effect.

It seems to be working again: see Weather Underground (no, it is not the leftist militant group that may have inspired Barack Obama: the name of the weather service is just a good joke).

In Cambridge, the warmest October 22nd occurred in 1979 when the temperature climbed to 83 °F. Well, it doesn’t look like what they see today. Even the average high temperature for this day is 60 °F which is still far too high. After high noon, the temperature in Cambridge is 44.5 °F. Tonight, it is predicted to drop to 34 °F, close to the record low of 28 °F measured in 1940.

For Thursday night (the day after … the speech), the temperature in Cambridge is forecast to drop below the freezing point to 28 °F which, if true, will beat the record low temperature set in 1883, which means exactly 125 years ago, when it was 29 °F. Not bad! (Sorry, during Thursday, the prediction of 28 °F for tonight was raised to 31 °F; not quite a record but still below freezing.)

Moreover, the phenomenon present in Cambridge in order to discuss global warming seems to be driving rain and hail, with the probability of rain indicated as 60%. 😉 At 1 p.m. local time, they report a cloudy weather with isolated showers.

What is going on? A record cold temperature on the night a speech is given on Global Warming?

From Yahoo Finance:

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Al Gore returned to his alma mater to help Harvard University launch its new greenhouse gas reduction effort.The former vice president and 1969 Harvard graduate, told a campus audience on Wednesday that it’s time to find ways to make better use of knowledge to save the global environment.

Riffing off Harvard’s Latin motto of “truth,” he said the challenge is to find truth in the climate crisis and “use that as a basis of a new concept of who we are.”

Can Mr. Gore find the truth in the climate crisis or will he keep delaying the truth with his current position on the subject?

    Too funny. Maybe we should clone Al, place him all over the world and stop all the Global Warming.

    You have to respect how passionate Gore is about this cause. That is random about the weather, I wonder if we can track more stats if this occurs wherever he travels.

    @Is Al Gore in S.C.? Thanks for the comments. You guys don’t get it. Al Gore even had a cold front follow him into Florida last year when he was campaigning for Obama for president. It seems cold fronts follow Al right before he gives opinion on global warming. Wonder why Al does not want to debate the issues?

    The figures you see in this post have been verified and the temperatures are accurate.

    Not to question his motives but Mr. has made millions (about 100M in seven years) and, with his investments in green technology, stands to make hundreds of millions more from his global warming campain.

    i still follow everything Al Gore does, everything he does is something useful and very interesting.

    Carl@Harvard Application:Thanks for your comments. Al Gore is going to be speaking to the Philippines on the pitfalls of global warming later this spring. U can make a study, but just about every time he has gone to a conference or is speaking, cold weather has arrived just before he gets to his destination.

    @Brian: Thanks for your comments. U are right Al Gore is and will make tons of money on the global warming scam that he, the IPCC and UN started when they shared the Nobel Peace Prize. What a scam and if cap and trade passes in the US, he will make billions. Gore owns 25% of a carbon trading company.
    What I hate is to see money waste to get nothing in return expect a lot of debt and future taxes for the U.S. that I grand children will have to pay.
