||O'Reilly Ignores Gore Answer To His Question

As usual O'Reilly shoots his stupid mouth off, and when the person he talks about replies to him he ignores it, because the answer from Gore proves that he is an idiot. Here is what Gore said to O'Reilly, in reply to his question about all the snow in winter.
Al Gore to Fox's Bill O'Reilly: Heavy Snow 'Consistent' With Global Warming
Yes, it is snowing a ton this winter: That just proves his point. Former Vice President Al Gore says the record snowfalls across much of the country are "completely consistent" with his argument that the planet is warming.
Gore, an outspoken champion of efforts to combat climate change, offered his comment in response to Bill O'Reilly, who wants to know why southern New York has "turned into a tundra." On his blog, Algore.com, he said he "appreciated" the question from the conservative talk show host.
It's simple, Gore explained: Scientists have warned for the last 20 years or so that global warming could bring more snow. To help make his point he quoted liberally from a column last year by the Chicago Tribune's Clarence Page. "Snow has two ingredients: cold and moisture. Warmer air collects moisture like a sponge until it hits a patch of cold air. When temperatures dip below freezing, a lot of moisture creates a lot of snow."
Get it? Higher temperatures all over the planet can cause "all sorts of havoc," Gore said, continuing from the Page column. It can range from dry spells, to more frigid winters, to increasingly violent storms, flooding, and loss of endangered species.
The scientific community believes "heavy snowfalls are completely consistent with what they have been predicting as a consequence of man-made global warming," Gore told O'Reilly.
Legislation to limit carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases blamed for climate change failed in Congress last year. But Gore's dispute with Fox News is on-going.
In December, he accused the network of a "bias" against evidence that the planet is gradually warming to unacceptable levels. He said Fox News has "consistently delivered false and misleading information" about what Gore regards as a crisis.
