Al Gore: Loser

Gore has the Midas touch in reverse; objects of great value (Nobel prizes, Oscars) turn dull and leaden at his touch.  Few celebrity cause leaders have had more or better publicity than Gore has had for his climate advocacy.  Hailed by the world press, lionized by the entertainment community and the Global Assemblage of the Great and the Good as incarnated in the Nobel Peace Prize committee, he has nevertheless seen the movement he led flounder from one inglorious defeat to the next.  The most recent,failed global climate meeting passed almost unnoticed last week in Bonn; the world has turned its eyes away from the expiring anguish of the Copenhagen agenda.
The state of the global green movement is shambolic.  The Kyoto Protocol is withering on the vine; it will almost certainly die with no successor in place.  There is no chance of cap and trade legislation in the US under Obama, and even the EPA’s regulatory authority over carbon dioxide is under threat.  Brazil is debating aforestry law that critics charge will open the floodgates to a new round of deforestation in the Amazon.  China is taking the green lobby head on, suspending a multibillion dollar Airbus order to protest EU carbon cutting plans.
It is hard to think of any recent failure in international politics this comprehensive, this swift, this humiliating.  Two years ago almost every head of state in the world was engaged with Al Gore’s issue; today the abolition of nuclear weapons looks like a more hopeful cause than the drafting of an effective international treaty that will curb carbon emissions even a little bit.

Read the whole thing. It's so good, it'll bring tears to your eyes.

  1. So we are cheering on the destruction of the environment? I got no love for Al but I don't see why should be happy about this stuff

    Enjoy the Outer Banks while you can because when the Gulf Stream flames out the water there won't go above 60 degrees.

  4. Czabe isn't it funny how all these climate changers come out of the wood work when you dare to call them on the bullshit that is global warming? In the 70s I remember "experts" of Gore's I'll telling us that we were entering a new Ice Age and that we would have a population explosion that would result in us living on every inch of usable space on the planet.

    These climate changers also are great at conveniently ignoring all if the science that disproves their point, of which there is plenty. First it was Global Cooling, than Global Warming, then Climate Change. The experts have their hands full predicting the weather, and yet we are supposed to believe they can show humans are affecting our climate. Please.

    They are no different then the people who keep calling for the end of the world, every time they are wrong they come up with a new reason to change the date.

  5. +1 Sal!

    It's a fact that Gore's "data" was manipulated to achieve the desired result. Hundreds of reputable scientists have refuted Gore's "research" as green propaganda.

    A Pox on on Gore who's been feeding at the public trough his entire life.

  6. great points, Sal. The fact that the planet has had warming and cooling trends over millions of years means nothing to the green "experts". the planet has been around for millions of years and we are going to ruin it by driving cars to work?

  7. First, everyone should read BOTH parts of the post. They are great.

    What the greens have always failed to understand is that the countries that have vibrant economies and disposable income are the ones who can most afford to set aside land for parks, recycle, and do all of these other environmental activities. Bankrupting the world will destroy the environment, not save it, as people will be too busy trying to survive to worry about the fish and the birds...

  8. ha ha, what the hell are you guys talking about? It's a worldwide scientific CONSENSUS that human activity is causing global warming. Check out the well-referenced Wikipedia article, or countless sites such as

    climate.nasa.gov

    Oh I know, it's all a conspiracy. Everyone's in on it, across the world. NASA, NOAA, the Russian space agency, the American Meteorological Society, they're all in on it! Al Gore has hypnotized the world's scientists!

    ReplyDelete
  9. It is NOT a worldwide concensus. If it were, why would Dr. Heidi Cullen of The Weather Channel try to get scientists excommunicated from their professional societies if they didn't proclaim her views to be the correct views?

    That's not honest science, that's your run of the mill racketeering going on...

    Follow the money, Gore is very, very rich now and flies all over hell's half acre in huge private jets...and many many millions are given to universities for nice professors to study the effects of the technologically advanced male society on the planet.

    If this is such a problem, Gore would be biking everywhere and not be 400lbs. If this is such a problem, these scolds would be focusing on the serious polluters in the third world, they just go there to party and get laid.

    This whole thing is a criminal racket. Only an absolutely stupid ass can't see it.

    And lastly, a question...

    Was the earth ever at any point in time too warm for human life?

  10. Amen to E Buzz and Sal.

    Do your research to the others...the UN and IPCC reports have been debunked. Why do you think there is no extension of the Kyoto?

    If you read the not-so-fine print in the article, the true crux of the matter is apparent. It's just another TAX. The EU doesn't give a crap about the environment, it's just another way to TAX the CRAP out of everyone.

  12. Let's be clear: there is no major scientific organization on earth, governmental or nongovernmental, that rejects manmade global warming. So, for your hoax theory to be true, it has to cast a very wide net. Hundreds of thousands of scientists are corrupt and/or stupid and/or have guns to their heads.

    There are plenty of pieces that won't fit -- bits of contradictory evidence, scientists falsifying data, some Nazi at the weather channel firing people, etc. But you have to weigh the whole picture. On the one hand you have tons of research and researchers suggesting carbon dioxide is increasing surface temperatures, versus a massive conspiracy theory where Al Gore, like a James Bond supervillian hiding in his undersea fortress, is pulling the strings on governments everywhere.

  13. "Bits" of contradictory evidence? That's a convenient, charitable spin.

  14. "Let's be clear: there is no major scientific organization on earth, governmental or nongovernmental, that rejects manmade global warming. "

    Thank for the education Obama...piss off.

    Was the earth ever at any point in time too warm for human life?

    Does CO2 lag or lead temperature rise?

    C'mon brainiac, don't tell me you are as stupid as the dummy Obama.

    Did the CRU fake and/or massage data to achieve a result?

    Yes they did...and why? For money.

    Simple greed.

    I have never met anyone as greedy as the people I encounter who are lefties...greedy and extremely selfish.

    And look at Gore...greedy and selfish.

    What is the basis, in years, for judging whether or not big SUVs are damaging the earth?

    Governments have lied in the past, governments like the US government, USSR government, Cuban government, maybe all of them!

    So piss off.

  15. oh millerer... has the planet gone thru multiple global warming and cooling events throughout geologic history? ut oh, yes it has and humans had nothing to do with any of them...

    there's a couple major problems with you chicken littles who claim that humans ARE THE CAUSE of any spike in tempertures thanks to the fact we use systems for day-to-day living that produce CO2...

    so far NONE of you BCS Global Warming honks have been able to predict THE NUMBER ONE FACTOR in what heats-up the planet: you know, that big firey glowing thing in the sky? THE SUN! None of you are able to predict what the Sun will do and it very obviously goes through hotter and cooler cycles.

    And then there's that little INCONVENIENT TRUTH that man does not produce the most CO2... Volcanos do. You should be focused on reducing all volcanic emissions if you want to have any control of global warming/cooling.

    Now go back to spanking your monkey while watching those wusses on Whale Wars get their asses punked yet-again by a buncha Japanese whale murderers.

  16. Lance, I'm immediately forwarding your post to NASA, because I'm sure all those rocket scientists forgot to consider geologic history, the sun, and volcanic activity.

    Once again, main point: if you believe global warming is a hoax, you believe the world scientific community is part of a vast conspiracy.

    I see E Buzz has no problem with that, but personally I find it ridiculous. File it with the faked moon landing, the grassy knoll, and the demolition charges that brought down the twin towers.

  17. It is my understanding that Gore completely IGNORED sun activity in compiling his "data".

  18. Genius, Czabe. I love more how now it's "climate change" not "global warming" because now, "climate change" is responsible for EVERYTHING. Cooling AND warming. It's like no matter the counter argument, it's climate change because "it just does it all". Reminds me of a kitchen cleaner. Additionally, why is it that when records fall somewhere, it beats a record from the 1800s or early 1900s; was climate change the "in" thing then too? Lastly, where was Mr Al Gore when he was Veep? Essentially NO climate change legislation introduced by Gore or Billy C. Joke. Keep up the sane and logical fight, Czabe. Don't let the lemmings throw you off the cliff and bring you down with them.

  19. Additionally, after manipulating his "data" to achieve his desired result, Gore and his minions declared that the issue was "closed" and no longer subject to debate. How convenient.
    "Here's our case. BZZT! Time's up! We win!"

    Is there a Nobel prize for chicanery?
    Step right up, Algore!

  20. "Once again, main point: if you believe global warming is a hoax, you believe the world scientific community is part of a vast conspiracy."

    I'd like to know, since you and your scientists are experts (are they ALL climate scientists?), what is the exact temperature the world should be?

    Any idea? Should we not have seasons, and every year be very cold, very warm, or just right?

    Or should we have seasons, but they should be as predictable as Fat Al's son going out and getting hammered and driving drunk on a Friday night. Simple cycles that never change.

    Ah, but you say we're adding to the extremes! But you and your scientists base this on what? A few hundred years of recorded temps, with the older years not nearly quite as exact as the closer years. Or do you use ice cores? Is that the sole measure?

    When Gore makes millions off his movie, selling his movie, on plastic DVDs, made of oil, this immediately tells me, because I think, that he is completely, absolutely, totally, one hunnerd percent full of shit. He lives pretty high on the hog, huh? Lots of jet rides, lots of homes, lots of energy being used.

    I just read a story where Britain will be building gas powerplants to supplement the wind farms they are building.

    Now, is this because someone lobbied for the wind turbines, so that someone would get a contract to build these NEW plants?

    It is starting to make a little more sense.

  21. I don't know if Al Gore is full of crap or not, but it seems pretty naive to me to just completely dismiss the notion that humans have an influence on the overall climate. Especially when the period in question coincides with the population of the planet growing exponentially, by billions. Naive or stupid.

    I'm willing to bet that all the smug people who are quick to point out how they won't be spoonfed by liberals or Obama or whoever would embrace this issue if it happened to be promoted by Republicans. It's become a matter of pure politics at this point.

  22. Ice age. Earth was covered in ice and now isn't. I theorize the neanderthals had secret coal plants back then. It's not a conspiracy, it's that the data the other 'scientists' use is flawed and vastly skewed to fit the result desired.

    Check the 650 actual SCIENTISTS, to include Nobel winners for ACTUAL science, that 100% refute man-made global warming here: http://tinyurl.com/5laabm

    You can't find these guys trolling the shadow of a POLITICIAN.
