Al Gore: Can I buy the rights to your firestorm footage to use in my global warming presentations? Filmmaker: Nah, it’d be deliberately deceptive

But… doesn’t this guy realize that everything is caused by climate change and therefore it is absolutely impossible for Al Gore to be deceptive on any level? I guess not:

A WEATHER expert has backed the stance of an Alice Springs filmmaker who refused to sell footage of a firestorm to former US vice-president Al Gore — to use in Mr Gore’s climate presentations — because the event was unrelated to climate change.

Chris Tangey from Alice Springs Film and Television recorded the phenomenon on Curtin Springs Station, 360km southwest of Alice Springs, while scouting locations for a film.

The footage has been an international sensation, reported widely in global media.

In an email exchange with Mr Gore’s office, Tangey said using the footage in a climate-change framework would be “deliberately deceptive”.

“I am aware that you may have missed the reporting on the very localised nature of this firestorm,” Tangey wrote. “However, in any case, I am confused as to why you would offer to buy a licence to use it at all unless you had conducted even elementary research which might indicate that this Mt Conner event had direct linkage to global warming/climate change.”

Now we can only speculate what specifically Gore planned to claim was the cause of this firestorm in Australia — probably some guy’s gas powered leaf blower in Paducah. Instead the Goracle will have to settle for the “climate change is causing filmmakers to go into deep denial” angle.

The Dirty Weather Report will have to find its dirt elsewhere.
