WUWT-TV To Counter Al Gore's 'Dirty Weather Report' With Live webcast

24 Hour Live Webcast Will Air Starting Nov 14 at 8PM EST

CHICO, Calif., Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/

WUWT-TV to debut on November 14th to counter Al Gore's "Dirty Weather Telethon" on November 14th and 15th starting at 8PM EST (5PM PST)

Al Gore is forming another 24 hour media event on November 14th, focusing on "dirty energy=dirty weather", which you can read about here.

WUWT Editor Anthony Watts says:

"It is yet another example of what has been called 'Tabloid Climatology' trying to use the once forbidden 'weather is not climate' meme. Now almost any weather event seems to be used as 'proof' of a global warming influence where just a few years ago the idea was laughed at by climate activists."

Journalists should take note that the largest and most prestigious scientific journal in the world, Nature, has come down squarely against the kind of claims Mr. Gore is making in his previews saying:


"Better models are needed before exceptional events can be reliably linked to global warming."

Mr. Gore's program is yet another transparent politically based attempt to link climate and weather, and to make people fearful of common weather events that we've seen all throughout history. WUWT hosted a 24 hour counter event last year, thanks to the talents of our contributing cartoonist, Josh.  You can review that here.

Last year, during his "24 Hours of Climate Reality", Mr. Gore created a video called "Climate 101" in which he purported to show a laboratory experiment showing the warming effects of CO2. Unfortunately it was discovered that Mr. Gore fabricated the experimental results using video post production techniques. You can read about it and see the evidence here:

Video analysis and scene replication suggests that Al Gore's Climate Reality Project fabricated their Climate 101 video "Simple Experiment"

and

Replicating Al Gore's Climate 101 video experiment shows that his "high school physics" could never work as advertised

Due to Mr. Gore broadcasting fabricated and impossible to replicate science experiments, and then failing to correct the video even when glaringly obvious falsifications were pointed out, and partly due to WUWT's founder Anthony Watts recent interview (and backlash) on PBS Newshour, a donor has stepped forward and offered to equip WUWT for professional Live TV over the Internet and has purchased a complete web enabled TV studio setup for use this year, seen here.

It includes two cameras, live video over net input, and live graphics/slideshow input.

It has been tested and has succeeded a 24 hour live web broadcast burn in period. When in production, the WUWT-TV web channel will have all of the elements of a professional TV production. While it won't match the well-funded technical quality of Mr. Gore's CurrentTV operations, it will offer a wide variety of viewpoints to counter the claims that "weather is now climate" that Mr. Gore is making.

During the live event Wednesday and Thursday, WUWT-TV will be able to conduct live video interviews via Skype online video, plus will feature simultaneous PowerPoint presentations run in high quality HD to go with the live interview, while the guest narrates. These can be full screen or split screen depending on the setting.

Guest presentations will be pre-loaded into the live on-air system, and to facilitate remote control, WUWT has engineered a remote 'web clicker' that allows guest presenters to control their presentation from their end, using a web page with a forward and back button on it.

WUWT-TV has invited a number of individuals to give presentations. A list follows.

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets?

Further, serverless computing, cl...
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
