Al Gore Urges 'Civil Disobedience' Toward Coal Plants (Another radical Democrat failure)
fox news ^ | 9/24/2008 | fox news

Posted on 09/24/2008 8:33:17 PM PDT by tobyhill

Al Gore called Wednesday for "civil disobedience" to combat the construction of coal power plants without the ability to store carbon, Reuters reported.

The former vice president, whose efforts to raise awareness of global warming have made him the most prominent voice on that issue, made the comment during a session at the fourth annual Clinton Global Initiative in Manhattan.

For the good of the planet’s atmosphere, I suggest that we gag AlBore and cut down on the hot gas escaping.

The Goracle was later heard to say, “What am I going to do with all these damn “carbon credit certificates? I’ve got a whole boxcar load of them!” LOL!

Where is Al planning his protests? Here in this country?

Has he thought about taking his followers to China and setting up a civil disobedience system there? China is producing far more pollution than we are, and they make no efforts to control pollution from their coal fired power plants. Whereas we do have pollution controls, though not up to the standards of His Holiness Al Gore of the Church of Global Warming.

Those loonie lefties should show that they really mean it by turning off all electrical devices for one full week. Including those powered by batteries.

Seeing how this carbon storage stuff is in fact a lucrative business and in some cases a complete con, someone needs to prosecute AlGore under RICO when the “civil disobedience” crimes start occurring.

That an ex-vice president, one who almost became president, sworn to uphold the law and the Constitution, would encourage civil disobedience, which rarely is civil, is a disgrace.

Gore appears to be trying hard to out do Jimmy Carter as the worst ex.

This issue could seal the deal for McCain in PA. Coal is a big part of their economy there. If Obama and his buddy Algore continues to oppose further exploration into coal, or civil disobedience to it, expect a sizable shift to McCain in PA

Just an aside — go to YouTube and check out the “final trailer” for the new James Bond film, “Quantum of Solace.” The villain looks remarkably like Al Gore, and his name is “Greene.”

Methinks the Bond series is discarding a bit of the PC it has been saddled with of late.

I happen to agree.

Let's all chip in to buy them tickets to China to protest and “civilly disobey” about ‘dirty coal’ plants there.

We wouldn't have to worry about them getting in the way of Clean Coal & nuke plants any more.

I think stoning Al with chunks of coal would be fulfilling his call for civil disobedience.

The problem is most of the younger generation he is trying to foment this kind of reaction from have absolutely NO IDEA what civil disobedience is. Is it that dang course I have to take to get in a college???
We have so dumbed down the younger folks, who have never read “Civil Disobedience” and don’t know what the heck it is. Plus they are too lazy surfing the web, checking out Perez Hilton or TMZ, to even care about carbon credits. Will that get me to graduate on time?? Somebody said credits.

A democrat nominee can not win this election without Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania is one of the leading states in the production of coal. Thank you Al Gore.

ps
If you had won Tennessee (YOUR HOME STATE YOU MORON) you would have been the President of the United States. However it would appear that the good people of Tennessee knew the real Al Gore and voted Republican>

As long as he doesn't dirty his hands.

But he should be arrested as an instigator once violence breaks out...and it will.

So the former Vice President and Presidential candidate now calls for civil disobedience if he doesn’t get his way. We are beginning to resemble the politics of a “banana republic”, because some people insist on getting their way.

This sounds far-fetched but with Biden’s gaffe in Pennsylvania when he said ‘No Clean Coal Plants in an Obama Administration and this recent outpouring from Gore who really knows better, knows he should keep quiet during a presidential election... I think Hillary is pulling Biden and Gore’s strings, they might both be working for her now and trying to derail the Obama campaign.

Gore should stand on the coal pile at the local plant in solidarity with his Luddite friends and try to stop the stacker/reclaimer from doing its business. It'd be just like Rachel Corrie trying to stop the bulldozer. What a sight to behold!

Those kind of things cut deeply into snake oil sales. That's why he is screaming so loudly.

By the way, how many coal fired plants does it take to keep his house in electricity? Two? Three?

But he should be arrested as an instigator once violence breaks out...and it will.

Within the last couple of weeks, a court in the United Kingdom acquitted protesters who had damaged a coal burning electrical power plant. Their defense ... necessity - that it's acceptable to commit a small crime to stop a larger harm or for the common good. The trial had a number of environmental "experts" (all from the left, of course, including one from the USA) testifying about how many residents near the plant would be killed by pollution, how many would be displaced by global warming, etc. etc. etc.

As a side note, "necessity" is a recognized defense in the US as well. For example, you are lost in the woods in the the middle of winter and come upon an uninhabited cabin and break in to save your life. Necessity is a defense against a charge of burglary. What Al Gore seems to be saying is that he would like to see necessity extended to cover sabotage to "environmentally harmful" facilities here. In other words, the ELF burns down a GMC Hummer dealership and is acquitted because they saved future lives.
