This is a new claim from the Reverend Al Gore - the high priest of wacko environmentalism. It now appears that smoking cigarettes is a "significant" contributor to global warming! Gore warned hundreds of U.N. diplomats and staff on Thursday evening about the perils of climate change, claiming: "Cigarette smoking is a "significant contributor to global warming!" Gore, who was introduced by Secretary-General Kofi Annan (Who else?) said the world faces a "full-scale climate emergency that threatens the future of civilization on earth." (And he wasn't just referring to what might happen if the Dem's ever get back into power) He showed projections of ocean water rushing in to submerge the San Francisco Bay Area, New York City, parts of China, India and other nations, should ice shelves in Antarctica or Greenland melt and slip into the sea.
He didn't show what might happen if an asteroid hit Earth, or if the Moon was to wobble out of orbit, or what might happen if the Sun went supernova - but one thing is for certain - smokers would be held to blame!!! More risible unscientific claims from Gore.
