Al Gore Warns of 'Planetary Emergency' Again

by Wynton Hall 21 Nov 2012, 1:09 PM PDT

In a recent interview, former Vice President Al Gore sounded the alarm of an impending "planetary emergency" if the Keystone Pipeline gets approved or if plans for Northwest coal export terminals proceed.

"We have a planetary emergency," said Mr. Gore. "I know it drives some people nuts when I say that, but dammit, that’s what we face."

This is not the first time Mr. Gore has declared the human race to be facing a "planetary emergency": he's made the exact same claim in 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2008.

It seems there's big money to be made in the "planetary emergency" business: since leaving the White House in 2001, Mr. Gore's assets have gone from less than $2 million to an estimated $100 million.

Much of that money was made through green energy deals subsidized by taxpayers. Fourteen of Mr. Gore's green tech companies bagged over "$2.5 billion in loans, grants and tax breaks, part of President Obama’s historic push to seed a U.S. renewable-energy industry with public money."

Still, Mr. Gore says he doesn't personally profit from his work on behalf of Mother Earth:

I have given, and do give, every year, 100 percent of my salary and 100 percent of distributions from Kleiner Perkins [a venture capital investment firm] to the Climate Reality Project. There is absolutely no income of any sort from Kleiner Perkins that I do not give completely and totally to the Climate Reality Project.

In a 2009 congressional hearing, Mr. Gore appeared offended when questioned about the massive money he's made in the green energy business.

It would be so refreshing if Tipper's ex-husband had the integrity to just admit that he and his global-elite ruling-class have decided that 5.5 billion of us smelly peasants have to go so he and his buds can live in a Walden paradise.

Who cares? He's making a mighty stash by sitting on the Apple Computer BOD.

he's been peddling this snake oil since his book Earth in the Balance way back in 1992 or 93. He said then that the internal combustion engine was threatening our survival. The man is certifiably deranged.

Algore's "Planetary Emergency" consists of being stuck with what could be billions of dollars worth of carbon credits if only someone would pass cap and trade and get the carbon exchanges going again.

Of course, last I heard, Soros had a pretty stout position in carbon credits, too.

As for the little guy, if they pass a cap and trade scheme, BOHICA.

The algoreithm is basically this: if he can’t sell his stock, he may have to take a secular job as well.

Come on, Al. You could score with the college girls using that line a decade ago, but it just isn’t going to work any more. Take a look in the mirror. :)

Uncle Al is just trying to scam more millions out of the undereducated lemming class. When Al Gore speaks the envirozombies line up to line his pockets some more. Nobel prize is now another leftist propaganda ploy. Would love to see Al Gore pet a polar bear...

Time Magazine predicted a coming Ice Age in 1974 and claimed it was man-made due to the smog blocking the sun's warming rays.

“The Earth has a fever.”

Let’s see if I can get close with his accent;

“When your buy-by has a feverr, you take it to the dock-tore.”

"We have a planetary emergency," said Mr. Gore. "I know it drives some people nuts when I say that, but dammit, that’s what we face."

Where is Al Gore's "The End is Near" sign? He should be marching on the streets of New York with the other believers.

"Al Gore Warns of "Planetary Emergency" again."

Al Gore must be running low on cash and needs to scam up some more money from the idiots who believe the world is coming to end due to Global Warming.

Charter member of the CHICKEN LITTLE SOCIALIST BRIGADE. These frauds have not even explained the COOKED DATA in the last AGW/IPCC REPORT. Yet once again they are going to try and SHOVEL ANOTHER PILE OF BS onto the american public with the SKY IS FALLING, SKY IS FALLING routine.
