Former Vice President Al Gore's website was crashed when Matt Drudge's website
linked to it on Tuesday afternoon. Gore's site was down from approximately 4:30 PM ET until about 6PM ET.
The DrudgeReport.com linked to Gore's claim
that "heavy snowfalls are completely consistent with what scientists have been predicting as a consequence of man-made global warming" at exactly 4:29pm ET
Gore's website crashed almost immediately following Drudge's link. The irony for Gore is that he has touted his role of “creating the Internet.”
It now appears the creator of the Internet's website is not able to handle traffic from the DrudgeReport.com. Drudge has a long history of overwhelming websites with heavy readership traffic.
Gore has been joined by many proponents of man-made global warming in now claiming that record cold and snow is either “consistent with” or caused by global warming. The problem for Gore and others who make these claims, is they are on record claiming decreasing snow and cold are caused by global warming.
Even more bad news for Al Gore is the fact that his claim that heavy snows being “completely consistent” with “man-made global warming” is being ridiculed by scientists and the claims are at odds with the U.N. climate panel that Gore shared a 2007 Nobel Prize with.
Gore's claim of snow being "consistent" with global warming is also at odds with is Oscar Winning 2006 film “An Inconvenient Truth.” Gore never once warned of record cold and increasing snowfalls as a consequence of man-made global warming in that film. But Gore has hyped the lack of snow as "evidence" for man-made global warming.
The evidence Gore provided in his February 1, 2011 article for his claim that "heavy snowfalls" are consistent with global warming, came from a newspaper columnist.
