Al Gore arrives in Copenhagen
Politico ^ | Dec 14, 2009 | LOUISE ROUG

Posted on 12/14/2009 5:36:40 AM PST by rdl6989

COPENHAGEN — As international climate talks appeared in danger of disintegrating, Al Gore arrived to a rock star’s welcome in Copenhagen today.

If Copenhagen is the enviros' Woodstock, then Gore is The Who, the Grateful Dead and Creedence Clearwater Revival as a one-man band. The former vice president drew such a big crowd that security had to shut down access, with hundreds of unhappy activists left outside.

Inside the mobbed room, Gore watched as Danish and Norwegian officials presented a new scientific report that the sea levels are rising much faster than previous estimates. snip

The former vice president has scrapped a $1,200-a-head fundraiser for 3,000 guests scheduled for later in the week, to the dismay of Danish organizers.

Copenhagen will break records for low temperatures this week. The correlation with Gore’s travels are uncanny.

Dear Mr. Gore...you have given your children an inheritance the likes of which they will not be able to overcome. Shame on you for all eternity.

Priceless!! Especially this:

Moeller also quoted the 19th century conservative British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli, saying that “to be conscious that you are ignorant is a great step to knowledge,” drawing a chuckle from Gore who, last week, traded barbs with Sarah Palin, describing her as a global warming “denier.”

Gore doesn't realize how that aphorism applies to him!! on the march to knowledge, he's hasn't taken the first step!!

Gore arrives in triumph like Bernie Madoff arrives at an investors’ conference (before he got caught). Algore is the Bernie Madoff of Carbon Credits. If we cut down CO2, we starve the beloved ‘rain forest’ which thrives on CO2. The vaunted Hydrogen Car emits water vapor, the leading offensive ‘greenhouse gas’. He is truly a conflicted man.

“Gore arrives in triumph like Bernie Madoff arrives at an investors’ conference (before he got caught)”

Bingo. It would be interesting to investigate Gore for insider trading. He has profited from government policies.

If Bernie got 150 years for 50 billion. algore should get 2000 years. The irony is that he’d get out as the next naturally occurring global warming cycle happens.

I had always heard that Ken Lay of the hated Enron was the founder or inventor of the carbon credit. If true, I wonder if these people would even care, Also if true, It should be hung right around Gores neck like a piece of rotting meat.

Yes, CCR was at Woodstock but got bumped to @ 3am after the Grateful Dead overplayed their set. By that time, most of the attendees were in a likely “haze”

LOL

In the early 70s, I sat on a panel that previewed new tv shows and commercials. One of the things we previewed was this very skit. (The original, of course).

It was funny then and still funny now (no matter who does it).

Thanks for this.

No way. His kids will be filthy rich. That is the problem with our Congress and President. They are all filthy rich, get superior healthcare and will never suffer from their corruption.

Think about anyone on a salary/fixed income salarie. When massive inflation hits (which it will given our 14 trillion debt which will grow to over 100 trillion with SS and Medicare, seriously), these people will suffer horribly. And most of these people are the poor and middle class.

I have lived here on the west coast by the beach for the last 54 years. There has been not sea level rise other than the two high tides we get everyday ( we get two lows also). The shoreline is the same, it’s not higher, not lower, it’s where it has always been. I know this is not a very scientific observation but just as the boy in The Emperor Has No Clothes I can only comment on what I see.

He is truly a conflicted man.

No, not even a little. Sociopaths know little of conscience, empathy or honesty. Guilt is a tool they use, not something that they experience.

WARMERFUL COPENHAGEN
Tune: "Wonderful Copenhagen"

Warmerful, warmerful Copenhagen
Climate gatekeepers in town
We will say it's hot
Even when it's not
We will pass the gas around

In warmerful, warmerful Copenhagen
Putting the foolish in fuel
Now I'm turning green
Getting sick, I mean
Singing Copenhagen
Warmerful, warmerful
Copenhagen is cool!

I flew on my private jet
To pay off my climate debt
Meeting Algore for cocktails today
And there he stands, waiting for me
With a welcome so warm if I pay

Warmerful, warmerful Copenhagen . . .

Warmerful, warmerful Copenhagen
Climate gatekeepers in town
We will say it's hot
Even when it's not
We will pass the gas around

In warmerful, warmerful Copenhagen
Putting the foolish in fuel
Now I'm turning green
Getting sick, I mean
Singing Copenhagen
Warmerful, warmerful
Copenhagen is cool!

WHY IT'S GETTING WARM
Tune: "Riders on the Storm"

Why it's getting warm
Why it's getting warm
Is it hotter than the norm
Or just turning back to form
Gore would sound the warning horn
And make cars that run on corn
Why it's getting warm

There's an inconsistent flaw
In his scientific law
There's not one single cause
For why an iceberg thaws
The conclusion that he draws
Is giving us guffaws
An inconsistent flaw

Gore, you incoherent goof
Gore, you incoherent goof
It doesn't take a sleuth
To see your lack of proof
Here's an inconvenient truth
It's still freezing in Duluth
You incoherent goof

Why it's getting warm
Why it's getting warm
Is it hotter than the norm
Or just turning back to form
Gore would sound the warning horn
And make cars that run on corn
Why it's getting warm

Why it's getting warm
Why it's getting warm . . .

Wouldn’t it be great to have a jihadist blow up the building when they are all inside? That’s global warming I can relate to. Plus it helps with their Marxist population control desires. Win-win as I see it.

Gore who, last week, traded barbs with Sarah Palin, describing her as a global warming “denier.”

If Sarah is a "denier" of Global Warming (count me in), then Gore is a "supplier" of Global Warming.

algore is perfect as the leader of the warmer-crats. He is so clearly a Flim-flam man in his mannerisms and his standard “baffle ‘em with BS” retoric.

Noting today that the 3rd worlder’s have walked out of hopenhage following over the weekend a major recant by a major warmer-scientist, Drip, Drip, Drip. The next thing you know they’ll all be as gone as their old rally-cry term “Global Warming”.

[[awwwwwwwwwww they are sad they could not pay the biggest schemer of carbon crap $1200?]]

you know? I just had a htought- instead of requiring everyone to contribute funds to this scam- perhaps we should just require ONLY those ignorant fools who support Gore to pay for cap and trade- let’s start out with a test run- make htem carry the burden since they are the ones so horny to ‘fix the planet’- then, after 20 or so years, we’ll look at the data again- and IF there is ANY evidence showing we are able to affect the climate, then perhaps start requiring the fence-sitters to carrythe tax burden.

IF these peopel are so desperate to throw their money away by handing it over to Al Gore and his criminal empire- then I say let them do so- just leave the rest of us out of their madness
