Skip to comments.Gore Plans 24 Hours of 'Climate Reality'
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 theres 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.

The science is settled.
We have consensus.
Algore is a raving lunatic.....................
Can’t he just lead his followers off to a compound in Guyana or something?
Then again I'm preaching to the choir. You have to be able to comprehend Al Sharpton on MSNBC to believe Algore.
Let’s call this event a “Day of Hot Air.”
You have turned into one of my favorite posters!!! After an evil FReeper pinged me with a Maddow picture I needed a good laugh :D
There must be a LOT of money to be made in this scam for someone to so shamelessly pursue it.
Gore + “24 hours of reality”??
Stanford’s Woods Institute awards 2011 round of Environmental Venture Projects
Facilitating Pro-Environmental Behavior: The goal of this project is to transform the typical nature-based tourism experience into a platform for motivating and sustaining pro-environmental behaviors among the world’s 70 million-plus ecotourists. Fieldwork will be conducted in California and the Galapagos Islands.
PIs: Nicole Ardoin (School of Education/Woods Institute) and William Durham (Anthropology). Co-PI: Ewart Thomas (Psychology). Investigator: B.J. Fogg (Computer Science).
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!!!
Sex Poodle Alert.
That pose seems to have a touch of “Dr. Evil” to it.
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.
Actually it’s a pretty easy sell when you hold your annual Global Baloney conference in, say, Kauai or Bali.
24 hours of eating different varities of pie? Yes.
24 hours of psychiatric evaluation? Yes.
24 hours of “reality”? Never.
Catastrophic Anthropogenic Climate Alterations: The acronym defines the science.
You’ve got that right.
To induce a shot of true reality a padded cell is needed immediately for Al Gore
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.
He Looks like Chairman Mao in that picture. Is this guy like the false Prophet in Rev. or what?
Cant he just lead his followers off to a compound in Guyana or something?
Or maybe run for President?
****a platform for motivating and sustaining pro-environmental behaviors among the worlds 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!!!!!!!
Chances are where ever he’s at it’s going to snow.
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?
Don't think he got included in Revelation. He even flunked Divinity School.
Some one sees his meal-ticket disappearing
And from the look of that picture, it was one BIG ticket!!
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!!!!
Algore hasn’t been within a million parsecs of reality in a long time.
Sept 14th, huh?
Looks like we have to dig the snow tires out of the garage REALLY EARLY this year.
“In the last year, the reality of the climate crisis has become palpable,” he says. “Weve had 10 billion-dollar-plus events in the US alone. Weve 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!
I think he needs a Peterman reality bus tour.....
He's either a charlatan or he's got too many bats in his bell tower.
