Gore in 24-hour broadcast to convert climate skeptics Photo 8:10am EDT
LONDON (Reuters) - Former President Al Gore will renew his 30-year campaign to convince skeptics of the link between climate change and extreme weather events this week in a 24-hour global multi-media event.
"24 Hours of Reality" will broadcast a presentation by Al Gore every hour for 24 hours across 24 different time zones from Wednesday to Thursday, with the aim of convincing climate change deniers and driving action against global warming among households, schools and businesses.
The campaign also asks people to hand over control of their social networking accounts on Facebook and Twitter to it for 24 hours to deliver Gore's message.
"There will be 200 new slides arguing the connection between more extreme weather and climate change," Trewin Restorick, chief executive of the event's UK partner Global Action Plan, told Reuters on Monday.
"There will be a full-on assault on climate skeptics, exploring where they get their funding from."
FK that scamming SOB!
Ha ha ha!
Greenbacks for carbon credits -all payable to me!
If he only yells louder and more stridently will the slow deniers comprehend his superior knowledge of the science involved.
They embarass themselves. They're all starting to remind me of this guy:
OMG, we're doomed!
What, like a Jerry Lewis telethon?!?!?! I can’t wait to see him at hour 23. Fat, sweaty, his shirt tail out of his pants. Stumbling around like a drunk with his arm around someone, looking direct in the camera begging people to believe. Then telling the story about how believers need to treat non-believers like he treated racists in the old South. “Tell them: you know, people just don’t talk that way any more.”
Gore is operating under the premise that if you tell lies over and over, some people will believe them. He is right. Some will.
Uncorrupted scientists need to counter this guy for scientific—not political—reasons. When the science is right, uncorrupted politicians will follow.
Hilarious. All Gore for 24. Yikes!
This should just about do it. After 24, no more Gore.
Former “President”? Al Gore.
Well despite the fevered fantasy of the “reporters”, we never had to withstand an Al Gore Presidency.
Now he’s reduced to a telethon.
Well. We Tennessee voters tried to keep him from doing more harm in a position of power. I’m sure if we could vote to stop him from rampaging the countryside swinging his hammer of doom we would. But we only have so much control over our citizens.
Is it gonna be on his DOA cable channel? Y’know, the one with about 12 viewers?
LOL...this is like a bratty temper tantrum! OK guys, I’m gonna yell and scream ALL DAY until I get my way.
What’s the “carbon footprint” to create, broadcast and watch this piece of work?
I’ll challenge you to a 1 hour debate on the subject.
I passed 8th grade science.
