FNC’s 'Hannity' Cites MRC’s Business & Media Institute on Gore Global Warming/Northeast Flooding Claim

In case you missed this one, former Vice President Al Gore is looking for anything - any weather event at all to correlate to so-called anthropogenic global warming.

During a conference call for activist hosted by his group Repower America on March 15, Gore attached blame to the recent windy and rainy weather in the Northeastern United States could be tied to global warming.

"Just look at what has been happening for the last three days," Gore said. "The so-called skeptics haven't noted it because it's not snow. But the downpours and heavy winds are consistent with what the scientists have long warned about."

This caught the attention of Fox News Channel's Sean Hannity. On his March 16 broadcast, Hannity pointed Gore's wisdom out for his viewers.

"Alright, so it has been a long cold winter for the global warming alarmists," Hannity said. "Now, first they told us the record-breaking blizzards that we endured over the past three months were caused by global warming. Now they say climate change behind this weekend's heavy rainstorms in the Northeast. And guess who is leading the charge? Everyone's favorite former vice president, Al Gore."

Hannity cited the conference call reported by the Media Research Center's Business and Media Institute on March 16 and offered the possibility that when the flowers come in May, it meant it probably also rained during the month of April.

"Now, according to BusinessandMedia.org, Gore held a conference call yesterday with some of his fellow alarmist in which he said, quote, ‘Just look at what has been happening the last three days.The so-called skeptics haven't noted it because it is not snow. The downpours and heavy winds are consistent with what the scientists have long warned about," Hannity said. "Yes Al - yes, scientists have also been known to warn that April showers bring May flowers. So, Mr. Vice President, when you see the flowers in May, consider yourself warned."
