Gore Warns Global Warming Will Bring Civilization to a Screeching Halt Thursday, January 29, 2009 By Penny Starr, Senior Staff Writer
(CNSNews.com) Former Vice President Al Gore told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee Wednesday that if action is not taken by the United States to curb greenhouse gas emissions, the world as we know it could disappear.
If we stop global greenhouse gas emissions today, according to some scientists, we will see an increase in temperatures that many scientists believe would be extremely challenging for civilization, Gore testified on Capitol Hill. If we continue at todays levels, some scientists have said it can be an increase (in global temperature) of up to 11 degrees Fahrenheit.
This would bring a screeching halt to human civilization and threaten the fiber of life everywhere on the earth, Gore said. And this is within the century, if we dont change.
Using a power point presentation, Gore showed charts and graphs that, he said, reveal how global warming is causing glaciers to melt around the world, depleting water supplies. He also said rising temperatures already are responsible for natural disasters in the United States, including forest fires, drought, and insect infestations that are killing trees.

will he ever just SHUT UP?
Yeah, about as soon as Blago does...
"I have a Powerpoint presentation. Case closed."
Doesn’t he have stock in a number of companies set to gain if the cap & trade initiatives go thru?
Cap & Trade will bring our economy to a halt, not global warming—world is cooling....
So, there should have been no civilization after the Glaciers melted????????????????????
Well, he's got it almost right. The government policies enacted because of "global warming" will bring civilization to a screeching halt.
..unlike his carbon fill gut that could cause a multi vehicle pile up on open plains of the Sahara.

No. An utter lie and mythology is incapable of doing that.
However, socialism and efforts to radically expand government, disguised as “environmentalism” and “climate science” most certainly will.
Not trying to be a smart a$$, but it occurred to me that I would like to see a lot of what passes for our “advanced” society come to a screeching halt.
Gore has been saying this same BS for how long now?
Let me check...nope...no screeching halt yet.
Rasmussen, April 22, 2009: “Just 34% of U.S. voters now think global warming is caused by human activity, the lowest finding yet in Rasmussen Reports national surveying. The Obama administration’s proposed anti-global warming efforts are predicated on reducing human causes for the problem.”
Al Gore’s breath can bring civilization to a screeching halt.
Man, Gore is a whack job!
Played golf up in Northern Maine last weekend. Still snow on the ground.
So WHY doesn’t AL-GORE come to a SCREECHING HALT???
OMG!.....Will this Asshat ever run out of gas?
Solar bursts might, not Gorebull Warming, Weird Al.
I used to see this guy who went around giving talks for IBM, he was very good and very funny at the same time, and he had a definition for an “expert”. He said that it was anyone giving a talk more than 50 miles from his home and used a flip-chart. I guess today he would update to “power point presentation” instead of flip-chart.
