Al Gore: Earth's Interior 'Extremely Hot, Several Million Degrees'

  1. "For several years as uneducated sycophants in the media gushed and fawned over every utterance from former Vice President Al Gore, NewsBusters has informed readers of just how absurd the junk science he's peddling really is.

    Last Thursday, NBC "Tonight Show" viewers got a perfect example of how the Nobel Laureate basically makes things up, and that his poor grades in college were quite an indicator of just how little he understands about science."

    "O'BRIEN: 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?

    GORE: 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 ..."

    I met Al Whore back when he and slick willie were campaigning the first time. Not only is he stupid, he has the unmistakable stench of arrogance oozing from every orifice of his body.

    Very disgusting.

    Under "resources" It says geothermal gradient in many places is 25-30 degrees celsius per km. Two kilometers below it corresponds to 50-60 degrees celsius which is oh well, 122-140 degrees fahrenheit. That is pretty hot to me.

    It also says existing geothermal wells are rarely more than 3 km deep.

    Can you believe it? SUVs are so bad they are melting the core of the planet! It's hotter than the surface of the Sun, for crying out loud!

  5. We drill 6-8 km down for Oil. Earth's crust averages 40 km thick. Thinner under oceans.

    Millions of degrees. Ya.
  6. He is an inbred hillbilly from the hills of TN.
  7. He went to Harvard fool and not like Dubya did. He was wrong about millions of degrees, he should have said thousands
  8. global warming is a perfect forum for Al Gore, they both have hot air in common.
  9. Gore got into Harvard because of his dick sucking father. He said Millions because he meant it. Another dumbass democrat.

    Bush got an MBA, Gore got a shitty little degree in government.

    As this thead was never intended to be about the utility (or not) of geothermal energy, you could have saved yourself time by just calling it, "Gore sucks! Please affirm."
