Gore Plans 24 Hours of 'Climate Reality'
Discovery News ^ | September 8, 2011 | By Kieran Mulvaney

Posted on 09/08/2011 6:37:00 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

The last time former US Vice President Al Gore discussed the climate change issue with Discovery News, the Copenhagen treaty discussions were in full swing, and Gore expressed at the time that "I choose to be optimistic" about their outcome.

That was a shade under two years ago, and since then, for those concerned that human activities are changing the planet's climate, the outlook seems bleaker. The Copenhagen process failed.

"I think there’s great cause for optimism despite the fact that the US political process has been paralyzed largely by a determined effort by the global warming polluters and their ideological allies in the smother-the-government-in-the-bathtub crowd," he said during a phone conversation with Discovery News.

As part of that effort, Gore's Climate Reality Project is launching a 24-hour event on September 14.

Gore says perhaps "98 percent" of the slideshow is an update of, and different from, the one that formed the basis of the Academy Award-winning An Inconvenient Truth; it will, he says, focus on rebutting the three or four principal assertions made by climate change deniers, and will also focus on the succession of extreme weather events that have occurred globally over the last year.

I'm sure he'll include images I've seen on "The Universe" on History Channel and other shows on Discovery Science and National Geographic Channel of the Earth covered in ice during MANY MANY Ice Ages. Now we got out of those ice ages millions of years before the combustible engine was invented.

Then again I'm preaching to the choir. You have to be able to comprehend Al Sharpton on MSNBC to believe Algore.

There must be a LOT of money to be made in this scam for someone to so shamelessly pursue it.

I refuse to watch Algore's propaganda piece which I forgot the name of.

But I saw part of the "Day After Tomorrow" on one of the movie channels, and there was not one scientific fact included in that show. I mean NYC turning into a climate colder than Pluto in 24 hours and hundreds of giant tornados in Los Angeles in 24 hours?

Read the tagline or hell i'll just state it. Liberalism is a MENTAL DISORDER!!!

Algore is wearing out that “hope” thing trying to keep his hoax and scam alive. Summer is almost over and that pesky winter is on the way. It’s tough to sell global warming in the winter.

Mark Steyn states in his book, “After America” when governments are considering taxing cow flatulence, there is nothing left to tax,....... unless of course you can tax carbon!

Al Gore, Jr is the poster boy for corruption in politics and crony capitalism. I hope he lives to be 100 and never passes gas or his icky middle chakra again!

Harvest the last of your tomatoes and peppers on the 13th. They cannot handle the nationwide hard freeze associated with Al Gore's 24 hour global warmingthon.

****a platform for motivating and sustaining pro-environmental behaviors among the world’s 70 million-plus ecotourists****.

Well, if those 70 million would just stay at home and not traverse the earth in gas guzzling jets, boats, ATVs and scooters - while camping in and trashing the wilderness - we could all breathe easy!!!!!!!

It’s very telling that this fruitcake has to announce 24 hrs of reality. Isn’t that an admission that he doesn’t experience it regularly?

The 1st 11 years of this century far surpasses the 1st 11 yrs. of the last century in the creation of horsesh-t, and they had horses to help out. Besides L. Nemoy says it’s an ice age that’s comming not global warming. Phew!!!!

Sept 14th, huh?

Looks like we have to dig the snow tires out of the garage REALLY EARLY this year.

Gore Says:

“In the last year, the reality of the climate crisis has become palpable,” he says. “We’ve had 10 billion-dollar-plus events in the US alone. We’ve seen flooding in Pakistan, 20 million people displaced from their homes, further destabilizing a nuclear-armed country. In Australia, an area the size of France and Germany combined was inundated. In Russia, the drought and fires killed more than 50,000 people and resulted in all the grain from Russia, Ukraine, and Kazakhstan being taken off the market – which, among other factors, contributed to an all-time record food price spike. The Texas southwestern drought (Texas, New mexico, Oklahoma, Arizona) with no end in sight - of 254 counties in Texas, 252 of them were on fire this summer. And Nashville....”

In 1958, Sheldon Harnick said via The Kingston Trio:

“They’re rioting in Africa
They’re starving in Spain
There’s hurricanes in Florida
And Texas needs rain
the Whole world is festering iwht unhappy souls
The French hate the Germans, the Germans hate the Poles
Italians hate Yugoslavs, South Africans hate the Dutch
And I don’t like Anybody very much.

But we can be tranquil and thankful and proud
For man’s been endowed with a mushroom-shaped cloud
And we know for certain that some lucky day
Someone will set the spark off and we will all be blown away

They’re rioting in Africa
There’s strife in Iran
What nature doesn’t do to us
Will be done by our fellow Man”

Oklahoma has a vast store in Native American Wisdom. My favorite is often sold to tourists as an accurate weather indicator.

The base is a flat piece of wood with a stick poking out at a 45 degree angle. From the upper end of the stick there is tied a leather thong. The bottom of the thong is tied to a rock, which hangs just above the wooden base.

The instructions read: If the rock is wet, it is raining. If the rock is moving, the wind is blowing. There are more instructions, but they all pertain to WEATHER.

So in deference to Algore, I will add an indicator of CLIMATE as follows: If the rock “feels” warmer than YOU feel it should be, then Global Warming has once again been scientifically proven!

Algore has also claimed that the earth's core is "several million degrees" hot, which would make it a few hundred times hotter than the surface of the sun. And he bought about $9 million worth of ocean front property in California after claiming that the sea level would rise by 20 feet.

He's either a charlatan or he's got too many bats in his bell tower.
