Al and his buddies have taken refuge in a box canyon with the Hole-in-the-Wall Gang. They have posted NYT and WaPo reporters as sentries at the entrance. It will be a fight to the death when the posse arrives.

Oh yeah. You're right. And like this article states, nothing will come from the DOJ while Obama is in office.

WE WILL CREATE GREEN NEW DEAL, SAYS GORE

(The Guardian, 3-14-09)

. . .Gore is in the capital, as he is every few months, to spend a couple of days meeting with his partners at Generation Investment Management, the “sustainability-driven” asset management firm he set up in 2004 with David Blood, who, as the former chief executive of Goldman Sachs Asset Management, once managed investments worth $325bn (£232bn). As is the case everywhere, the numbers are somewhat smaller these days, but the firm they both wanted to call Blood and Gore (sadly, it was overruled by the rest of the board) still manages a pot of investments worth billions, according to Blood. . .

You just KNEW you were going to see THIS for the UNTEENTH time, didn't you. Of course, I never tire of POSTING IT.

Heard that Trump wants Algore sued. I WANT HIM -- AND HIS IPCC AND BUSINESS CRONIES -- JAILED!!

Photobucket

An imbittered former Senator and Vice President Al Gore is seen here en-route back to prison after a federal appeals court refused to review his 20 year sentence for his lead role as spokesman in the “Climategate” fraud conspiracy.

The same court recently rejected the appeals of the lengthy sentences of the 137 alleged UN “scientists” – Gore’s co-conspirators – for falsifying data supporting so-called Cap and Trade legislation that trial testimony disclosed would have virtually destroyed what remained of the U.S. economy while unjustly enriching Gore and a cabal of insiders.

During his trial, Gore was notified by the Nobel Committee that he would have to return the large monetary prize and the gold metal awarded him in 2009. He told reporters that the last of his prize money had gone to the lawyers and Tipper pawned his medal when she left him and filed for divorce after his conviction.

I am going to add the link to an article about Senator Inhofe's statement and demands today.

Al Gore should testify on global warming fraud, says Senator

A ranking U.S. Senator is demanding that former Vice President Al Gore be a part of a comprehensive government investigation into allegations that scientists and special interest groups have perpetrated the "greatest scientific scandal of our generation."

Senator James Inhofe is openly questioning the veracity of those within the scientific and political communities who are using so-called climate change data to push economic and social policy.

Senator Inhofe is asking the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate whether there has been research misconduct or criminal actions by the scientists involved, including Dr. Michael Mann of Pennsylvania State University and Dr. James Hansen of Columbia University and the NASA Goddard Institute of Space Science, who are suspected of manipulating their research to fulfill a political agenda.

"We knew they were cooking the science to support the flawed UN IPCC agenda. As I said on the Senate floor back in 2005 that the IPCC has demonstrated an unreasoning resistance to accepting constructive critiques of its scientific and economic methods, even in the report itself...this is a recipe for de-legitimizing the entire endeavor in terms of providing credible information that is useful to policy makers," said Inhofe.

The rest is at the link.

To: everyone

In his statement, Senator Inhofe said:

What emerges from our review of the emails and documents, which span a 13-year period from 1996 through November 2009, is much more than, as EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson put it, scientists who “lack interpersonal skills.” Rather, the emails show the world’s leading climate scientists discussing, among other things:

Obstructing the release of damaging data and information;
Manipulating data to reach preconceived conclusions;
threatening journal editors who published work questioning the climate science “consensus”; and
Assuming activist roles to influence the political process.

I really don't know how people like Al Gore sleep at night.

The same way that most leftwingers sleep at night - because no matter how severely they are proven wrong, no matter what the consequences to real people of their wrong-headed policies, they never admit to anyone, especially not themselves, that they were wrong. Ever. Even now, as one global warming organization after another is proven to be a fraud, left-wingers are still saying "Well, that doesn't mean that global warming isn't happening". Ol' Al is sitting in his angry chair, telling himself that his house of cards is toppling only because of a vast right-wing conspiracy.

About two years ago Gore and his partner talked the investment board of the Church of England into handing over $250 million to their Generation Investment Management fund. They have talked many other investors out of additional billions. Gore and Blood bought up EU carbon credits in a depressed market. If Congress enacted Cap-and-Trade an official U.S. carbon market would be established and merged with the EU trading scheme. U.S. industry would become a captive market for Gore's carbon coupons which would have inflated with the passage of the energy bill.

Dear Lord. I wonder if the Church of England has demanded the return of their investment? I would think at this point others would also demand returns or sell their stocks or hire lawyers. algore and his partners have pulled off a scam on scale or larger than Maddoff.

I find it interesting that most Nobel Committees in hard science award their prizes most often decades after an actual research finding is published (or patent filed, etc.). Only then can evaluators even begign to see if the finding is really that earth shaking in its impact in the field. The same, of course, holds true for sports hall of fames where there is usually a waiting period (5 years of more) after retirement before a person is even eligible for nomination. That allows time to see if the voters still feel the career effort is among the very best in that sport.

But...But...when it comes to the Nobel Peace Committee, they are more than happy to make politically driven awards before a single game is even played in a career that is often fradulent and embarrassing.

Gore...Obama....are Bernie Madoff kind of hopey-chaney recipients of Nobels.

Al Gore got beat in his run for President.
Al Gore was never any great shakes as a politician, He got his job as Senator because his father had it and he used his father’s connections.

So he got beat, he had the prestige of being a Vice president of this country, of being an ex-Senator, he had plenty of money and a great pension from having served in the Senate. He could have gone aay an lived a good life and had some respect.

But Noooo: That didnt suit Al. He wanted to be a wheel. He wanted to show the voters who didnt want him for President what a brilliant man they had lost.

So he jumped in this phony science scam. Now he didnt know anything about science or Global Warming, but someone showed him the dollar signs, and stroked him.

Somebody is behind Al Gore. Al isnt smart enough to work this scam on his own. Who is the guide behind Gores stupid actions?

Serious article about algore; the hoax he perpetuated that made him a millionaire several times over; and...

According to Senator Inhofe in the interview posted yesterday on Hot Air, he says that the Goracle is the first 'environmental billionaire'... yes, with a 'b' and he wasn't talking about the future, he was talking about now.

Listen to the interview of Senator Inhofe that was posted on Hot Air Yesterday... Inhofe offers his theory about the answer to your exact question about half way through the second piece where he discusses the roots of the scam (the interview is posted in two halves of approximately 7 minutes each.

http://hotair.com/archives/2010/02/23/exclusive-hot-air-interview-inhofe-to-release-report-blasting-ipcc-on-climategate/

Here's the Readers Digest of it...Inhofe figures it was ALL hatched by the UN. Since the biggest funder of the UN is the United States, being able to live off the avails of the climate scam would have let the UN call their own shots on their activities without being beholden or needing to worry about the opinion of the States on anything. He didn't say this but in my view, if the UN hatched the plan and then brought the Goracle in as a partner... and we know that the UN is principally made up of country states that are at complete cross purposes to the US, that means that the Goracle is not only a scam artist, he’s a traitor, no?

It would be a wonderful thing to explore the possibilites of a class action suit against him and “all Algore’s children”, the ones like Jones and Mann, and East Anglia who jumped on the gravy train. A class action suit of course handled by a Country Lawyer, not some enormous firm that splits 900 million, while 100 million of us get a dollar each.

Seems that selling Al_gore's AGW companies short would be a no-lawyer way of making some money off of lies. It warrants a little research to see about this.
