Al Gore at Hampshire College: Global warming is real and needs to be addressed now
The Republican ^

Posted on 04/29/2012 9:04:03 AM PDT by matt04

Former Vice president Al Gore on Friday refuted claims that global warning is a myth, saying that 97 to 98 percent of the worlds’ scientists attest to its veracity.

Gore was the keynote speaker at the inauguration of Hampshire College President Jonathan Lash Friday. The theme of Lash’s inauguration was “Educating for Change: critical thinking in a critical time.”

“Now there are some talk radio show hosts, they say that (global warming is) not (real)," Gore said. "It’s up to you; my point is we must respond. What the scientists tell us is going to take place if we do not is too awful to contemplate.”

Just before Gore spoke, he was he introduced by Hampshire alumnus Gary Hirshberg, co-founder of the New Hampshire-based Stonyfield Farm, who announced a $1 million donation to the college for its commitment to the environment.

...

In 2007, Gore won the Nobel Prize with the U.N Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. “An Inconvenient Truth,” a film about his campaign to educate people about global warming, won two Oscars in 2006. Since then some have contested the veracity of the claims that climate change is caused by humans.

Gore said that some claim environmental change is caused by sunspots or volcanoes. ”That’s not true. It’s an urgent problem that requires urgent attention and must be addressed,” he said.

Gore told students that some doubted the wisdom of President John F. Kennedy saying in the early 1960s that the United State would land on the moon within a decade. “You will have the opportunity to do things greater than you can possibly imagine," Gore said. "And now is the time. We need an American spring this spring. We need to occupy democracy.”

I thank God every day that this moron wasn’t allowed to steal the 2000 election. Yes, I know the Democrat mantra was, “The Supreme Court awarded W the election”, but those were Democrat operatives who were caught with illegal punch card voting devices (used to over punch already-voted ballots) in their cars the morning after the election.

That's not a refutation. I have noticed though that it seems to be the only argument advocates know. At least it's the only one I ever see.

In Livingston in Columbia County, one farmer has gone to some unusual lengths to keep his apple trees from freezing. Russell Bartolotta is using five helicopters to blow warm air down onto the trees. It's costing him between $50,000 and $70,000 for two nights.

With age Al has gotten a bit wiser: he gave this speech in the spring with much less chance of a blizzard making his message more laughable than it already is.

This fool will never give up... And he’ll never live long enough to see his nightmarish visions ‘not’ come true. Thankfully a great deal of his scare tactics have already been proven to be bunk, but he soldiers on regardless with his falsehoods claiming in his speech that 97% of scientist agree with him.

Global climate warming change is not science, it is speculative tripe.

The photograph says it all.

Can someone post a pic of Gore’s giant office with three huge flat screens and his Nashville residence that burns more energy in a month than the average American home does in a year?

By the way, does Al Gore toddle around in a chauffeured SUV and take chartered private jet flights?

Every time algore speaks he hears the "ka-ching" of his investment porfolio rising by another 10%.

But you've gotta feel for the guy...if only he had managed to carry his HOME STATE in 2000 he'd be "Mr President" today.

BWAHAHAHAHA!

The boys at Kleiner Perkins and Byers are heavily invested in the global warming hoax. It is imperative for hucksters like them to maintain the myth until they can cash out.

What I found really odd is that after Gore predicted that the seas will rise by 20 feet, he then went out and bought a $9 million oceanfront villa.

Why would anyone plop that kind of money down on property that, if their predictions were true, would end up being washed out to sea?
