Disgraced Democrat And Global Warming Con-Man Al Gore Claims Crust Of Earth Is 'MILLIONS Of Degrees...'

It would be funny except this con man has convinced your ruling masters to raise your taxes to help 'solve' this 'problem'.

Cap and Tax, Suckers.

Innumerate Al

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 …

The geothermal gradient is usually quoted as 25–50 degrees Celsius per mile of depth in normal terrain (not, e.g., in the crater of Kilauea). Two kilometers down, therefore, (that's a mile and a quarter if you're not as science-y as Al) you'll have an average gain of 30–60 degrees — exploitable for things like home heating, though not hot enough to make a nice pot of tea. The temperature at the earth's core, 4,000 miles down, is usually quoted as 5,000 degrees Celsius, though these guys claim it's much less, while some contrarian geophysicists have posted claims up to 9,000 degrees. The temperature at the surface of the Sun is around 6,000 degrees Celsius, while at the center, where nuclear fusion is going on bigtime, things get up over 10 million degrees.

If the temperature anywhere inside the earth was "several million degrees," we'd be a star.

    Don't you know that you are a SuperStar!

  • He didn't claim the earth's crust is millions of degrees, he was talking about the earth's core. Even that is a stretch, but when he goes on to talk about geothermal energy and using it for various purposes.

    "you'll have an average gain of 30%u201360 degrees %u2014 exploitable for things like home heating, though not hot enough to make a nice pot of tea."

    • You FAIL at reading comprehension:

      AlGore "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 %u2026"

    • I was pointing out the mistakes made by both Al Gore and yourself. Of course the inner core temperature isn't several million degrees, and your mistatement that geothermal heat when used in the home cannot boil a pot of water for tea is also incorrect.

  • I wonder how many pounds of carbon this scumbag racks up in his travels spewing this sh!t? Is he paying his "TAX" on this or is his mouth exempt? BTW, research Alturd's business connections with the "carbon credit" industry! If this goes thru, he'll be the new "Bill Gates" in terms of wealth! You libs won't be screaming "down with big oil" anymore, it'll be "down with big carbon" when it hits you in the pocket!!!

  • Listen up, Al Gore invented the Internet, and if he can do that, who are we to question him when he says the earth is amazingly hot at the center?

    I mean, come on, if it weren't for him there would be no Live Leak!

  • he's an idiot....he makes me cringe everytime i se him on tv..

    i do think that in certain areas geothermal is viable, like the comment above talking about iceland..

    • Geothermal energy is a well known issue...where i grew up in Washington State we played in the hot springs all the time.

      Al Gore claiming that the earth interior is several MILLIONS of degrees is something else...and the poster above you is desperately trying to distract and spin to make the goracle look less stupid...as if that would be possible, lol!

  • Well it seems to me that so many people talk about global warming until it starts to take a life of its own.Whatever the warming is not being caused by man.But most likely caused by natural cycles of the sun.We need to drill for oil in america and get away from the environmental bull that has stopped common sense in most of the world.

  • The largest contributor to human induced global warmer is all the hot air coming out of Al Gore's mouth. This guy is a charlatan.
