ASPEN He may have been preaching to the choir, but former Vice President Al Gore stirred an Aspen audience Friday with a passionate speech about the effects of global warming, at one point pounding his fist on the podium and declaring it a moral issue.
It didn't help, Gore said, that the scientific community committed some self-inflicted wounds. That was a reference to mistakes and misstatements in an IPCC report four years ago that led to a large amount of political debate and media attention.
I think the mistakes were blown way way out of proportion, Gore said. One reason for the mistakes, he said, was that a defensive culture developed among some scientists because they were harassed on a regular basis by opponents of the concept of global warming.
But the general consensus (recognizing global warming) is so strong and so firm and so widely shared now, that it is clearly the basis for action that the rest of us ought to take, Gore said.
He was asked about the popular confusion surrounding the topic. For instance, when winter weather turns extremely cold, many people question the concept of global warming.
With global warming, since the manifestations are distributed globally, it masquerades as an illusion, Gore said. It could be a cold winter in one geography while the world as a whole is continuing to get warmer. There can be more extremes of both heat and cold. There can be more volatility in weather patterns.

He probably have 4 or 5 limos waiting. He's such a celebrity that he has to try to fool his waiting fans.
Although, not so much as when he had more people fooled 5 or 10 years ago....
Yes, Al, it IS a moral issue. And your immorality is transparent.
Who are you gonna believe, the 4 foot of snow outside, or the learned Cancunian scientists that prayed to a false deity from a culture that no longer exists about a problem that is a hoax. Trust them, they want to ban dihydrogen monoxide. We can get by without it according to the Climate Alarmists
When Al Gore talks morals in Aspen then you know his medications are being abused.
He is gone.
The only people following his actions now are parents that advise what he is, a nut ball.
Lloyd: So, where you headed?
Lloyd: Mmm, California... beautiful.
Lloyd: Some place warm, a place where the beer flows like wine, where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano. I’m talking about a little place called Aspen.
Harry: I don’t know Lloyd, the French are a$$holes.

A moral issue? You mean like asking a woman other than your wife to touch your "special purpose"?
Obamacrats moving to Colorado now?
Mr. Gore and morality have never met. Hit the road, Al, not buying your BS.
