Al Jazeera America Shutting Down … Flashback: Hillary Clinton, ‘Viewership Of Al Jazeera Is Going Up In The United States’

IMAGINE THAT, AL JAZEERA AMERICA FAILED IN AMERICA, GOING THE WAY OF THE DO DO …

The Al Jazeera America will be closing up shop by April 30, 2016. The channel launched in early 2o13 and hit the airwaves in August 2013 after the purchase of Al Gore’s Current TV. That was a story unto itself when Al “Mr. Global Warming” Gore sold True TV to Al Jazeera, a media entity which was funded mostly by the government of Qatar, which is of course gets most of its money from oil. No hypocrisy there now, is there? As stated at the Daily Caller, Al Jazeera America is shutting down after less than two-and-a-half years of operation, a victim of tanking oil prices that left its owners unable to finance the virtually-unwatched cable channel.Al Jazeera, which made a massive investment in covering the United States less than three years ago, is slamming the brakes on its American operation.

Al Jazeera America, a cable news channel that debuted in August 2013, is shutting down. Employees were informed of the decision during an all-hands staff meeting on Wednesday afternoon.

During the meeting, Al Jazeera America brass said the channel’s business model was “no longer sustainable.” It will shut down by April 30, an Al Jazeera America executive told staff, saying the decision was made by the channel’s board of directors and was not a reflection of the quality of their work.

Employees also were told that Al Jazeera will pursue a new global online strategy with content delivered from the U.S. later this year.

Remember when Hillary praised Al Jazeera News and Al “global warming” Gore Sold his news network to an oil producing country?

Remember when Hillary Clinton called it real news? As secretary of state in 2011 Hillary Clinton touted Al Jazeera as a “really effective” news network with viewership that was “going up in the United States.” More from the Politico on the death of Al Jazeera America.

The Qatar-based Arab-language broadcaster Al Jazeera created an American channel two-and-a-half years ago in a bid to bring its brand to U.S. audiences that were increasingly being exposed to global media.

Al Jazeera made a mission of doing in-depth, enterprising reportage that would eschew what it saw as the frenetic, soundbite-heavy character of U.S. cable news.

But the channel failed to build up a substantial viewership here, and was available only in about 60 million American homes, compared with roughly 100 million households that have cable TV. Its ratings, which approached 28,000 viewers in primetime in 2015 and 19,000 viewers in total day, according to Nielsen, were paltry compared to the big-three cable news channels.

Al Jazeera bought its way into the U.S. market for a reported $500 million in January 2013 when it acquired Current TV, the struggling news channel co-founded by Al Gore in 2005, and took over its slot on the cable dial.

SEVEN YEARS AGO, 12/13/08 … Al Gore Predicted North Pole Would Be Ice Free in Five Years (VIDEO)

HMM, GORE’S NORTH POLE ICE FREE IN 5 YEARS … MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH.

As Barack Obama tries to cram his global warming agenda nonsense down our throats, Remember in 2008 when Al Gore predicted that the North Pole would be ice free within 5 years? How is that working for the North Polar Ice Cap these days? Last time I checked it was still there and growing. Gore made the prediction to a German audience in 2008. He told them that “the entire North ‘polarized’ cap will disappear in 5 years.”

The below VIDEO was more of the Goracle spewing his BS from 20019 … Here is a bit of an inconvenient truth for Al Gore … ITS STILL THERE!!!

All these lies of so-called settled science by those global warming extremists with an agenda and they are still pushing this man made global warming nonsense even after the Goracles predictions have been embarrassing disproved.

Hey Al Gore … Columbia, SC Experienced Earliest Snow in 125 years of Weather Records Yesterday on Halloween Night

MORE GLOBAL WARMING BABY …

Last night on All Hallows’ Eve, Columbia, South Carolina experienced their earliest snow in 125 years of weather records.  According to Accuweather, wet snow and slush brought down trees and power lines around Greenville, South Carolina as of early Saturday morning. Snow was reported as far south as Columbia, South Carolina, making it the earliest snowfall on record. What say you Al Gore? What are the odds that Gore and the rest of the global warming settled science crowd will blame this on climate change as well?

Columbia, SC has just experienced their earliest snow in 125 years of weather records, beating the Nov. 9, 1913 earliest snow record by 8 days. Current South Carolina weather shows it’s still snowing in Greenville, SC.

The Christian Science Monitor is reporting Greenville was especially hard hit with downed trees and power outages. The Smokey Mtns received up to 16 inches overnight. The current U.S. snow cover map shows 18 states with some amount of snow this morning.

The Weather Channel – Record Early Snow In Columbia, South Carolina.

Saturday morning, a record early-in-season snow coated parts of South Carolina to usher in the month of November.

Snow was observed as far south and east as Columbia, the earliest flakes on record in the city, occurring less than three days after a string of four straight days in the mid-upper 80s. Sleet was reported just northwest of Charleston, South Carolina.

A couple inches of snow coated grassy areas and some roads near Greenville and Pelion, South Carolina. Power lines were downed in Greenville, Greenwood, and Lexington Counties due to the combination of strong winds and wet snow accumulations.

Up to six inches of snow was reported around Asheville, North Carolina while 2.5 inches was measured in Boone, North Carolina. Seven inches was measured near Marshall, North Carolina (2280′ elevation). Up to 3 inches blanketed Bluefield, West Virginia.

Mt. LeConte, Tennessee (6400′ elevation) measured 22 inches of snow, with waist-deep drifts. Numerous roads were shut down in Great Smoky Mountains National Park, including U.S. 441. Trees were “cracking and popping” due to the weight of almost 13 inches of snow near Hartford, Tennessee (3400′ elevation).

Global Warming? There is Snow in 49 Out of 50 States in United States

Global warming, eh?

USA Today is reporting that 49 out of 50 US states have snow on the ground. Of course for Barack Obama that would be 49 out of 57 states. Of course some states have more snow cover than other, like areas of Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey that are getting hammered by the latest snowmegeddon. Other areas in the South like Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, North Carolina and South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas were also pounded by snow and ice and from the latest storm.

Chart from NOAA

Snow is on the ground in 49 out of the 50 states — only the Sunshine State of Florida is completely snow-free, according to a map produced Thursday morning by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

(This doesn’t mean that those 49 states are snow-covered, of course, only that some part of each state has snow.)

Although this map doesn’t show it, there is snow in Hawaii, where webcams are showing snow on the high peaks of the mountain volcanoes of Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea.

The map also doesn’t include Alaska, but it’s a given that most of that state is snow-covered this time of year. A quick check with the National Weather Service forecast office in Fairbanks found 19 inches of snow on the ground there.

‘Snow is a four-letter word’: Northeast hit with another storm; South still reeling from ice.

Deadly Storm to Produce Another Round of Snow, Sleet.

Overnight forecast for Northeast: More snow – Massachusetts’ Berkshires could see 14 to 24 more inches.

Another winter storm dumps on US East Coast; more than 6,500 flights grounded.

But of course according to Al Gore and Barack Obama, it is settled science, it’s global warming.

Global Warming? Looks to be Like There is Actually Global Cooling … What Say You Al Gore?

Say it isn’t so …

So much for that settled science that there is global warming, as reported at the UK Telegraph, there actually appears to be global cooling. Hmm, a cold Arctic summer has led to a record 60%  increase in the ice cap, leading experts to predict a period of global cooling. The NRO has the 2012 statement from the BBC with their ridiculous global warming, Arctic sea predictions.

Al_Gore

There has been a 60 per cent increase in the amount of ocean covered with ice compared to this time last year, they equivalent of almost a million square miles.

In a rebound from 2012′s record low an unbroken ice sheet more than half the size of Europe already stretches from the Canadian islands to Russia’s northern shores, days before the annual re-freeze is even set to begin.

The Northwest Passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific has remained blocked by pack-ice all year, forcing some ships to change their routes.

A leaked report to the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) seen by the Mail on Sunday, has led some scientists to claim that the world is heading for a period of cooling that will not end until the middle of this century.

If correct, it would contradict computer forecasts of imminent catastrophic warming. The news comes several years after the BBC predicted that the arctic would be ice-free by 2013.

Al Gore was unavailable for comment.

  • Al Gore told the crowd at the Milken Conference.I can tell you looking out the window there is no global warming at my house. 8-10 inches of snow in May!

Al Gore Blames The Barack Obama Poor Presidential Debate Performance on the Rocky Mountain High Denver Altitude

Ever wonder why Al Gore never ran again for President after the close 2000 Presidential election with against GWB and why he is now so irrelevant? It is because of comments like the following …

Just when you thought you had heard it all … Good grief, Al Gore blamed Barack Obama’s pathetic Presidential debate performance on Denver’s Mile high altitude. Huh? This is what libs are coming up with to make excuses for Obama’s disastrous debate performance last night that saw GOP challenger Mitt Romney shred the incumbent president up one side of the arena and down the other. At debates end, Obama was reduced to an “empty” podium. When Obama loses next time, Gore will blame it on global warming.

I’m going to say something controversial here,” Gore said on Current TV. “Obama arrived in Denver at 2 p.m. today, just a few hours before the debate started. Romney did his debate prep in Denver. When you go to 5,000 feet and you only have a few hours to adjust — I don’t know.”

Let’s face it, last night was just a microcosm of Obama’s presidency … a disengaged President who appears that he could care less as to what is going on around him.
