"This year's whiteout of a winter has prompted many a global-warming naysayer to crow about buying Al Gore a snow shovel."

I can't understand what the above sentence means. Could you please restate it to understand it clearly?

    Assuming that the source is the global warming article on, the situation is:
    --- Al Gore campaigned to raise awareness of "global warming" which is a misnomer for "climate change" and involves major changes to "normal" weather patterns.
    --- The snowfall was so extensive that some thought it "proved" global warming was a hoax or exaggerated.
    --- So the writer says that some "unbelievers" would take pleasure in sneering at Al Gore and others concerned with "global warming".
