Fact Checking Al Gore's NYT Op-Ed
National Review/Planet Gore ^ | March 2, 2010 | Greg Pollowitz

Posted on 03/02/2010 10:17:48 AM PST by raptor22

Al Gore resurfaces in an op-ed to say that nobody's perfect, everybody makes mistakes and climate change is still real. And he has some oceanfront property in the Himalayas to sell you.

If hyperbole and chutzpah had a child, it would be the opening paragraph of Gore's op-ed in Sunday's New York Times. Gore surfaced from the global warming witness-protection program to opine that despite admissions of error and evidence of fraud by various agencies, we still face "an unimaginable calamity requiring large-scale, preventive measures to protect human civilization as we know it."

Perhaps he's trying to protect his investments as he knows them, for he is heavily involved in enterprises that deal with carbon offsets and green technology. If the case for climate change is shown to be demonstrably false, a lot of his green evaporates like moisture from the ocean.

Al, not only do you have a right to remain silent, you should exercise that right often...like from today until you freeze to death on your Himalayan beach front property.

What a maroon. Even the “global warming” defenders are carefully stepping away from Algore.

The climate “scientists” made mistakes in exactly the same way Tiger did. They did exactly what they meant to do - and then got caught.

algore is seeing his perceived importance fade before his very eyes, as always befalls those hawking “snake oil”.

“Al, you have the right to remain silent.”

But not the good sense to.

Texans can express their support for Al Gore today by voting for his presidential campaign manager, Gov. Rick Perry (who was a Democrat back then).

Give it up, Gore......your hoax and scam has been and is revealed. Ironically, some people who engage in such are smart enough to realize such and move on...into hiding...you....are apparently a zealot who does not suspect nor perceive of such. The ultimate question: When Gore falls in the middle of the forrest, will his cries and whines be heard? I certainly hope not. =.=

The interesting thing about The Goracle is that he doesn’t seem to be indignant about the dishonesty of the scientists one bit!!

Instead, he calls them “mistakes.” No they’re not “mistakes!!” They’re lies!

He has zero integrity (just like someone else we know whose first name is “Zero”)

Saw this on the sidebar, coincidentally as my freshman kid (high school) was talking to me about what they are learning in Biology; Global Warming.

No contradictory information. All ALGORE, inconvenient truth stuff. I took about 10 minutes to discuss with my daughter the GLARING FLAWS in GW, the number of scientists that disagree, the omissions of differentiating data, the scandals erupting with GW and some good old fashioned science.

So, armed with other sources of information and facts, my daughter will go back to class tomorrow. She’s doesn’t want to speak up or have me call the teacher. I still can’t believe that this is in the curriculum.

My problem with Gore is that he does not even pretend that he really believes his self-serving corrupt lies.
