The phenomenon that leads to unseasonably cold temperatures, driving rain, hail, or snow whenever Al Gore visits an area to discuss global warming. Hence, the Gore Effect.
- Australia, November 2006: Al Gore is visiting two weeks before summer begins. The Gore Effect strikes: "Ski resort operators gazed at the snow in amazement. Parents took children out of school and headed for the mountains. Cricketers scurried amid bullets of hail as Melburnians traded lunchtime tales of the incredible cold." (The Age)

- New York, March 2004: "Gore chose January 15, 2004, one of the coldest days in New York City's history, to rail against the Bush administration and global warming skeptics... Global warming, Gore told a startled audience, is causing record cold temperatures." (NY Environment News)

2. Refusal of an audience to grasp even the most basic model of climate change, even after it is explained, preferring to smirk at its absurdity.
Hey, we may have a tragic, unnecessary war, an exploding deficit, and overseas torture chambers, but at least we don't have to pay attention to the Gore effect.

The phenomenon whereby right-wing climate change denialists grasp onto any weather event not involving wildfire occurring in the same hemisphere that Al Gore is visiting and use it to "prove" that climate change is a myth.
Al Gore visited Brisbane, Australia last week. Brisbane's average temperature at this time of year is 23.4 degrees Celsius. During Gore's visit the temperature peaked at 23.3 degrees Celsius. Groupthinking right-wing bloggers have declared the Gore Effect active in Brisbane, Australia.
