Regarding Haven Shoemaker's 'Other Voices' article of Nov. 16, Shoemaker uses phrases like "sins like the devil," "the religion of urban atheists," "evil" and "apocalypse" and he calls Al Gore "The Rev. Gore."
Who is Shoemaker trying to reach?
He acts as if a Nobel Prize is won with a coin flip. It is an international award with a large cash award attached, which Gore gave to research for a solution to global warming. That puts him $250,000 ahead of most of us who believe in a cause.
Of course all of these national and international experts must be wrong because Shoemaker knows a fellow Carroll County mayor who disagrees with Gore.
So the score must be Carroll County mayors 1; international experts 0.
Also he uses the word liberal is an adjective to describe Robert Samuelson. Yet Michael Crichton is just described as "author."
I've lived in Carroll County over 50 years. I am a Christian. I believe in environmentalism. I am not an "urban atheist."
I believe it is our duty to our grandchildren, our country and to our God not to let this beautiful earth He gave us go down the tubes so that we can continue to make a buck or not pay taxes. Saying that "Any action we take that stifles economic progress decreases our chances of finding solutions" sounds like the earth can't be saved unless we make money.
Gore is not the hypocrite. He's the guy who had the election stolen from him in 2000. And now it seems certain people want to steal his Nobel Prize too.
Global warming is not an opinion. It is a fact. Closing your eyes won't make it go away. Making fun of Gore won't make it go away. I'm not a preacher, but I know you can't worship God and money too.
Here is a link to the offending column Mr. Rudnick objected to. It appears from his response, that Mr. Rudnick has bought Owl Gore's hype and has annointed Gore himself as the high priest of Gaian goodness and glory.
All one has to do is read Mr Rudnick’s response to easily conclude that the man 1) doesn’t have a clue about science, 2) doesn’t have a clue about the fine art of argument, and 3) really should be careful around electricity.
I don’t doubt climate change. After all the planet has been a molten ball of lava and a totally frozen ball of ice and snow. Both conditions were the result of natural processes long before the first man showed his face.
“He acts as if a Nobel Prize is won with a coin flip.”
No more like, which pockets will the most coins go to if one is awarded the Nobel Prize.
If it were, at least someone with a conservative perspective would have some chance of being awarded one.
So true. The “Peace” Prize has become an anti-American award. The peaceful Arafat won for his humanitarian dealings with Israel. And the peaceful Gorbachov won for bringing about the end of the cold war (not Reagan, not Thatcher, not Pope John Paul).
Well then, explain this FACT... the global temperature record has been showing a cooling trend since 1998. Cooling is the opposite of warming.
And explain this fact... with the corrected GISS data this August, the U.S. temperature record now shows that out of the 11 hottest years in the U.S., 7 of those years occurred before 1955. Explain that!
As the evidence mounts and the opposition grows among world scientists to global warming as a man made phenomenon, the zealots that have bought in to the Algore religion grow ever more desperate to force their deeply flawed agenda upon us.
You can google the evidence against man made global warming all day long...if you want to, or you can just continue to take the Goracle on blind faith.
Funny as it may seem, but that sounds like any letter to the editor in the Austin paper. Give it time and the part about the nobel POS prize will be in the LttE as well.
The guy's a nut. Pay no attention.
Well, we know for sure that's not the way they do it -- no self-respecting coin would ever turn up Yassar Arafat's name for the Peace Prize.
I am a Christian
No you're not. No Christian would tell such whopping lies as the folllowing two:
Gore is not the hypocrite. He's the guy who had the election stolen from him in 2000.
And now it seems certain people want to steal his Nobel Prize too. And even that's wrong -- who the hell would want to steal anything as totally meaningless as those thing have become??? What a joke.
“a large cash award attached, which Gore gave to research for a solution to global warming. That puts him $250,000 ahead of most of us who believe in a cause.”
Didn’t I read that oGre gave the money to a company that he has an ownership interest in?
Global Warming has become more of a mental illness than a physical phenomena.....at least when blamed on humans (or flatulating cows)
The next generation will laugh incessantly at the Global Warming nuts....I guess its this generations “you can get VD [STD] from toilet seats”
“3) really should be careful around electricity.”
They’re trying to eliminate electicity entirely. The tree huggers and their Liberal Demonrat friends object to coal-fired generators, damming rivers for hydroelectric power, windmills and nuclear plants. What’s left? Candles.
A coin flip is far too even handed an option for those that award the prize.

You can’t use candles. They give off heat which also contributes to global warming. Same applies to cooking fires so figure on eating everything raw. Feel free to enter your own restrictions for saving the planet while riding it of us selfish humans. (Sarc)
