Milken Conference: Al Gore Rocks Crowd With Global Warming Speech
The Hollywood Reporter ^ | April 30, 2013 | Paul Bond

Posted on 05/01/2013 9:48:04 AM PDT by Hojczyk

But he was most animated, his voice pitching higher and lower and the volume steadily increasing, when he spoke of global warming.

"This is for real. It is not made up. The scientists are not in a conspiracy to lie to us," Gore nearly shouted.

"The generation of people alive today will be held accountable," he said. "Our children and grandchildren ... if they exist in a world that has been devastated by these consequences that have been predicted and are beginning to unfold -- they would be well justified in asking of us: 'What in the hell were you thinking? And what in the hell were you doing? And why were you so willfully blind of what was happening on your watch?'"

Gore was speaking at the Milken Institute Global Conference, the same venue where he presented a global-warming slideshow several years ago that led to the film An Inconvenient Truth. Gore said the 2006 movie directed by Davis Guggenheim would not have existed had it not been for a Milken presentation on the subject.

The former vice president also took some non-partisan shots at lobbyists and some partisan shots at the Iraq War, Republicans, and in particular the Tea Party, which he said, "has a lot of astro-turf in it," adding that he thinks "a lot of good people" have been lead astray by the movement.

He may have accidentally found some common ground with the Tea Party, though, when he spoke of an inept government that shouldn't be relied on to solve all problems.

"Since the United States government is so neurotic and dysfunctional and pathetic and paralyzed, we the people have to lift it back up and make it work again," he said.

Sounds like the old hucksters who came to pioneer villages, pushing sales of their magic elixirs that would cure everything from bunions to baldness.

That these supposed leaders of business and finance should be such easy marks for his bombast tells you everything you need to know about the state of our economic soundness.

According to his website he wasn’t really guilty, he just plead guilty to protect his family:

“In 1989, the government charged Milken with securities/reporting violations in a case that continues to engender controversy. He admitted conduct that resulted - during a brief period in his 20 years on Wall Street - in five violations. Although such conduct had never before (nor has since) been prosecuted criminally - a fact rarely mentioned in press reports - he resolved the case without a trial to prevent further impact on his family. After paying a $200 million fine and serving a one-year-and-10-month sentence, he resumed his philanthropic work.”

Big government that gore loves so much can’t even predict a terrorist when the intelligence services of at least two major forces in the war on terror actually point out by name, and in writing, a terrorist on our own soil. Those are concrete facts. How can that government predict and manage something so abstract and uncertain as future weather?

He’s got over 300 mil. How much more does he want? He can’t possibly spend it all in the time he has remaining.

He plea bargained so that he only had to pay $200 million and spend 2 years in the pen. All done to protect his family. :)

BTW, he was, and probably still is, a big fundraiser/contributor for the Democrats. It’s funny that Republicans and Wall Street are linked together and branded as evil. When you look at all the people that helped make the 80s the “decade of greed,” they are all Democrats. Michael Milken, Ivan Boesky, etc.

White boy rocked the crowd who’s short term memory denies them the knowledge that he played on hysteria to demonize music and have minimum wage record store clerks arrested for selling “naughty records” to undercover vice squad cops.

All so that Al Gore Junior could make a 1988 stab the Presidential race.

He doesn’t give a sh!t about naughty language or pro-rape misogyny in lyrics.

and in particular the Tea Party, which he said, "has a lot of astro-turf in it,"

Eliminate Soros' front organizations and the Left would hardly have a voice.

But demonize that tea party again, 'lection season is coming.

It’s a religion.

For some it is a religion.

For others it is a business making money by hoaxing the gullible masses.

It's estimated that Al Gore made a fortune estimated at $300 million dollars or more pushing his Global Warming hysteria.

Gore's 20% stake in Current TV landed him a cool $100 million when it was recently sold to Al Jazeera for $500 million.

It should’ve read:

But he was most animated, his voice pitching higher and lower and the volume steadily increasing, like a lunatic, when he spoke of global warming.
“This is for real. It's really truly really real. Cross my heart and hope to tell the truth! It's a as real as the “millions of degrees” beneath the earth's crust that I told you all about on Conan's show.

It is not made up. Would I make something up just to make a coupla hundred million dollars? The scientists are not in a conspiracy to lie to us, 31,000 of them said that man-made global warming is a hoax. Don't listen to them, listen to ME” Gore nearly shouted.

The environmentalists that gathered to worship High Priest Gore with shorn heads, whom he met in great numbers in the hall, were
very intelligent people (Gore stated), and when he exclaimed, ‘Gentlemen! let us save the moon,
for the earth is going to sit on it’, they all set to work to fulfill his imperial wish, and many of them clambered up the wall in order to take the moon down.

“The generation of people alive today will be held accountable if they destroy civilization with the Cap n’ trade taxes and regulations amounting to $700 Trillion plus the incidental loss of all of your freedoms,” he said. “Our children and grandchildren ... if they exist in a world that has been devastated by these consequences that have been predicted and are beginning to unfold — they would be well justified in asking of us: ‘What in the hell were you thinking? And what in the hell were you doing? And why were you so willfully blind of what was happening on your watch?””

They might also ask, “Why did anyone with an IQ higher than 30 listen to Al Gore after Climategate exposed his lie?’”

Kinda like Nixon saying, “I am not a crook”

Or Obama saying, “I am not a dictator”

Or Mr. Burns on the phone disguising his voice saying, “Hello, this is NOT Mr. Burns”

I was just out for lunch. 60 degrees here in NC, and was colder than that yesterday. Forecast for the next week or so is more of the same.

Should be mid-to-upper 70s. Now, I'm not complaining as I prefer 60-ish.

But, if it were 10-15 degrees WARMER than usual, it would be certain, beyond-a-doubt, proof that Global Warming exists, and the only way to stop it is to pay large amounts of money to unspecified government entities.

However, since it's cooler, then "We're having a cool spring." Go Figure.

For the longest time. I thought AlGore was an idiot. A dammed fool college dropout who couldn't even carry his home state in what should have been a cakewalk of a presidential election.

Now, I'm not so sure. I think that he's a shrewd con man who used his failed presidential campaign to build a sucker list, which he's subsequently bilked out of 10's of millions of dollars.
