Dr F, thought what he had, was a pretty good idea, in this blog entry, but the bloom is somewhat off the rose, as they say. NBC in their infinite wisdom, probably at the bequest of their lawyers, pulled the Al Gore interview off YouTube. Add to that, Conan’s sudden departure from the late-night television stage and well, as I said the bloom is off the rose.    

In his recent  appearance on ‘The Tonight Show With Conan O’Brien,’ our ex. VP, made some scientifically ludicrous and very naïve statements about the Earth’s core and energy production, which his detractors, mined for gold.   Frankensteam, too, believed there was mileage in this material, but for now the threads that I/he am/is/was/were following, seem to have come unraveled.  

Al Gore on Conan O’Brien’s show the other day:  

Conan: Now, what about … you talk in the book about geothermal energy …  

Al: Yeah, yeah.  

Conan: and that is, as I understand it, using the heat that’s generated from the core of the earth …  

Al: Yeah.  

Conan: … to create energy, and it sounds to me like an evil plan by Lex Luthor to defeat Superman. Can you, can you tell me, is this a viable solution, geothermal energy?  

Al: 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 …  

Now, if the learned ex-VPOTUS, had just said–thousands of degrees…  

The fact is, deep geo-thermal, does have historical president (no pun intended), as the below links to ‘The Deepest Hole,’ prove. Both the defunct Soviet Union, and the Western Block scientific communities, were actively involved in research into this futuristic technology, and dear children, they still are!   

All the links with the exception of the ‘goddess Gaia and Al Gore is her prophet,’ still work, and more my follow, but for now, this has turned into a dry hole.  Sorry Charlie.

A developing story.  Maybe.       

Giai, Goddess of the Earth with her Consort, Aion and their four children

How come the Arctic’s melting, and how hot ‘is’ the center of the Earth, and are polar bears [really] in peril, and why ‘is’ Al Gore saying all those terrible things about our mother, Gaia ?          

Speeking of which, why did the Russians… er-ah, Soviet Union, ex-of, try ta dig a hole to the center of the Earth, and what did they find there?          

Round and round she goes and where she stops, nobody knows. Frankensteam’s on a roll.          

…stay tuned, kids!

The supposed “global cooling” consensus among scientists in the 1970s — frequently offered by global-warming skeptics as proof that climatologists can’t make up their minds — is a myth, according to a survey of the scientific literature of the era

“I was surprised that global warming was so dominant in the peer-reviewed literature of the time,” (1970’s) says Peterson, who was also a contributor to the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change 2007 report.

Scandal in academia — yet evidence still compelling for climate change.

Graphic images that reveal the devastating impact of global warming in the Arctic have been released by the US military. The photographs, taken by spy satellites over the past decade, confirm that in recent years vast areas in high latitudes have lost their ice cover in summer months.

Arctic sea ice, was believed to be experiencing a recovery of late based on satellite data, but sea surface observations, by researcher’s using ice breaker ships, revealed multiyear ice to be much thinner than climatologists thought.   

…ice conditions are even worse than feared after a survey found that ice detected as older and thicker by satellites is actually thin and fragile.

The loss of sea-ice habitat is considered the greatest threat to polar bear populations. 2008 Summer melting was equal in size to the states of Alaska, Texas and Washington combined — a shrinkage not predicted to happen until 2040.

Experts shocked by findings…

…ice is unable to withstand battering waves and storms because global warming is rapidly melting it…

The sea ice findings, will be published in the peer-reviewed journal, Geophysical Research Letters.

Hopefully, these ‘letters‘ are not the same ones hacked from the University of East Anglia, Climatic Research Unit, currently muddy the waters in the debate on how to deal with the challenges facing civilization in the face of sudden climate change.

…developing.

Thanks to all the new visitors who commented on this blog entry, when Coast To Coast Am linked over to FrankenSteams’ Log.

As an amateur weather observer, one of the first things I do in the morning after I turning on the computer, is check the East Conus Water Vapor Loop and today, this is what I saw.Summer_from_Hell-ECWV

Demons fiery breath roasts Texas -- Summer from Hell

Demon's fiery breath roasts Texas, in the "Summer from Hell," a phrase recently popularized by George Ure of urbansurvival.com fame.

As if it were ripped straight from the front page of a supermarket tabloid, this morning’s satellite image shows what we’ve all been thinking:  namely, there must be some exceptional reason it’s so damn hot in Texas and now we know. Demons! The fiery-hot breath of flaming demons, stoke “The Summer from Hell, ” roasting Texans in their own juices.

Austin-Camp Mabry weather records go back to 1898 and show that no other 30 day period has been hotter than what we’ve just endured!  —Burton Fitzsimmons

Hottest 30 Days in Austin Weather History!

“THE 30 DAY PERIOD FROM JUNE 15 TO JULY 14 AND AGAIN JUNE 16 TO JULY 15 THIS YEAR IS SO FAR THE WARMEST 30 DAY PERIOD OF RECORD AT AUSTIN MABRY SINCE 1898 AND AT SAN ANTONIO SINCE 1885.” — National Weather Service

San Antonio residents encouraged to ‘rat-out‘ water wasters. Deep in the heart of Texas, cattle are not king.
