Skip to comments.Global Warming: Fact, Fiction and Political Endgame (about Al Gore's "Crusade")
Posted on 02/23/2007 11:49:52 AM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Nobel Peace Prize nominee, Albert Arnold Gore, will be the toast of Hollywood at this weekends self-congratulatory soiree known as the Academy Awards.
Gore, whose failure to carry his home state of Tennessee cost him the 2000 presidential election, has recast himself as the populist pope of eco-theology and the titular head of the green movements developmentally arrested legions.
The doughy darling of Leftcoast glitterati has received two Oscar nominations for a junk-science production called An Inconvenient Truth, a pseudo-documentary born of the wildly improbable pop film The Day After Tomorrow. Gores Truth, however, is even stranger than the Hollywood fiction that inspired it.
The celebration of Gores film coincides, not coincidentally, with the much-ballyhooed release of a media summary of a report on global warming by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. These two events will serve as a fine backdrop for the coming cavalcade of dire ecological predictions by Gore and his ilk. Their goal will be to saturate the all-too-sympathetic media outlets with apocalyptic hysterics about a man-made global disaster. Perhaps, too, if all goes according to plan, well see another Gore presidential run.
All the Live Earth road-show talking points will play up an alarming assertion from Bill Clintons former veep: Never before has all of civilization been threatened. We have everything we need to save it, with the possible exception of political will. But political will is a renewable resource.

Global warming is fiction--just a new buzzword for the RATS to hang onto as election rhetoric.
Might as well be called MTV award of the week!
Do you hear that giant sucking sound? It's the so-called carbon exchanges ripping off the unsuspecting the same way they did with the dot.com bubble, after the same algore invented the internet.
No. They're saying we're ending a 40-year period of gradual warming, that continues a longer 150-year period of warming inside a 25,000 year interglacial period during a 43 million-year ice age.
Outside of the ice ages the earth is about 8 degrees warmer on average and has no glaciers.
No one has demonstrated a mechanism where adding another 0.02 % CO2 to the atmosphere has any measureable effect.
Don't worry or feel guilty. You can cheaply buy indulgences, not from the Vatican this time. Offsets are sold for $50/yr for a small home with one car. My daughter's high end homewith 2 cars and heated pool is just $125/yr. When Hannity criticized algore for his airplane use, the Dem babes said no problem. He just buys offsets.
You've got that right. Russia has huge blocks of credits, due to the collapse of it's economy under communism. China gets credits for cleaning up generating stations (something that first world nations did 30 years ago) -- meanwhile it continues to build a new dirty coal fired plant every week.
"Indulgences" -- perfect!
You must have missed the last hour of Rush, cussing, and discussing the nonsense egore puts out...was priceless!
My suspicion is that they use the equipment from the one they "tear down" to build another. Thus, they get valuable "carbon credits" almost at no cost....
Then they exchange the credits for dollars, pounds, euros and what have you.
Pretty neat trick if you can pull it off indefinitely

Prediction: despite all his naysaying, it'll happen before the end of the summer. He will garner the far-left, MoveOn, antiwar, and Hollyweird support, and will soundly defeat the 'Beast and Osama-Obama in the 'Rat primaries.
Algore will be a much more formidable candidate in the general election than anyone else the 'Rats have to offer. The DBM will see to it that all of his insane sore-loser ranting over the last 6 years will conveniently be ignored, flushed down the memory hole and out of sight and minds of the sheeple who don't closely follow politics. If Iraq is still on the table next year, he will win. Mark my words ...
it's = its
I think you are right on the money. Gore is an '08 stealth candidate. He has been traveling the country garnering support for the "global warming" movement from grassroots people up to billionaires like Richard Branson, Ted Turner and others. They have been flooding schools and churches with his movie. His climate movement can be rapidly transformed into a "Gore for president" campaign at the right time--like you say--probably August or September. The problem for him is that if he positions himself to the left of Hillary he is another Howard Dean.
You're right, and that's the scary part. Because of the constant drumbeat of propaganda about Iraq from the MSM that we've endured for the last few years, a Howard Dean-type would probably fare much better this time around. Dean himself was well on his way to the 'Rat nomination until the 'Aaaaarrrrrggghhhhh' incident in Iowa: a mistake that Algore's handlers will make sure that he doesn't repeat.
Yeah, Ann Coulter wrote at the time that the Democrat establishment had decided Dean was not electable, that Kerry was, and communicated this to the news media. When Howard screamed the media flooded the airwaves with it as if he had committed a cardinal sin and lined up behind Kerry. The deal was that all Kerry had to do was act presidential and the media would take care of the rest of the campaign. Of course as soon as Kerry gave that absurd, Vaudevillian salute and said, "Reporting for duty," at the convention he broke his part of the deal and the media was running damage control for him until November.
LOL ... All this time I thought he said, "Reporting for Doody."
Leftists like Algore and John Kennedy are all about taxation of property and government control of property.
Government entrenched elitists see themselves as the government aristocracy. They believe they "rule" over the sheeple as a matter of right.
John Kennedy wants an ADA style of attorney fee generating "mill" where private activists can sue private citizens for court ordered attorney fees without end. Where judges make the environmental rules without the need of legislators.
Never thought of that but makes sense.
