Gore Effect Impacts Copenhagen Climate

Written by 

Gore effectOver four inches of snow fell in Copenhagen last night as temperatures dipped to below 25°F, not including wind chill. Officials with Denmark's Meteorological Institute said there is a high probability of a white Christmas in Denmark, which has occurred only seven times in the last 100 years. This is what is known as "The Gore Effect," a strange phenomenon involving extreme or unusual cold and blizzards that seems to follow Al Gore and his global-warming crusade.

Politico.com has described the Gore Effect thusly:

For several years now, skeptics have amusedly eyed a phenomenon known as “The Gore Effect” to half-seriously argue their case against global warming.

The so-called Gore Effect happens when a global warming-related event, or appearance by the former vice president and climate-change crusader Al Gore, is marked by exceedingly cold weather or unseasonably winter weather.

To witness this effect in Copenhagen this week, see the video below:
