Submission + - Top forecaster blasts Gore for "alarmism"

wattsup writes: "America's top hurricane forecaster called Al Gore "a gross alarmist" Friday for his activism on global warming.

"He's one of these guys that preaches the end of the world type of things. I think he's doing a great disservice and he doesn't know what he's talking about," Dr. William Gray said in an interview with The Associated Press at the National Hurricane Conference in New Orleans, where he delivered the closing speech.

His comments came the same day as the release of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change approved a report that concludes the world will face dire consequences due to climate change.

After a quiet year in 2006, Gray has predicted a very active hurricane season for 2007, but maintains that there is no connection between hurricane activity and recent temperature trends. Oddly, while many are hailing his hurricane predictions as gospel, many are also ignoring his views on climate change."

Feel disillusioned? I've got some great new illusions, right here!
