Gore training 1,000 volunteers to spread global warming message

NASHVILLE — Former vice-president Al Gore, the unexpected film star of a documentary derived from a slide show, is about to begin training 1,000 "Climate Project" volunteers to help spread his global-warming message around the globe.

Gore has been promoting his documentary and book "An Inconvenient Truth" and encouraging volunteers to apply for his training sessions to learn how to give a shorter version of his PowerPoint-style presentations.

<A TARGET="_blank" HREF="http://adsremote.scripps.com/event.ng/Type=click&FlightID=2035536&AdID=2044432&TargetID=2019127&Targets=2011020,2003385,2020041,2011361,2022424,2011448,2019991,2017830,2011669,2019127&RawValues=&Redirect=http:%2f%2fwww.advertisersite.com"><IMG SRC="http://images.scripps.com/1x1.gif" WIDTH=336 HEIGHT=280 BORDER=0></A> Several thousand have already applied to be among the 1,000 volunteers Gore expects to train within the next six months, said spokeswoman Kalee Kreider. The first session with about 50 volunteers begins this weekend in Nashville, Gore's hometown.

Gore, a Democrat who lost the 2000 presidential election to George W. Bush, has criticized the lack of action on global warming by politicians across the ideological spectrum.

Gore's film has become one of the highest-grossing documentaries, while a companion book on the topic has become a national best-seller.

The wave of publicity about his initiative has raised questions about whether Gore will run for president again in 2008. Gore has said he has no plans to become a candidate, but he hasn't ruled it out either.

Gore plans to participate in the instruction at the sessions but will also have scientists and other experts help train the activists, Kreider said. There are no plans to hold any sessions outside Nashville.

Activists will have to pay their own airfare and accommodations, but the training sessions — which are expected to run Sundays through Tuesdays — are free. Scholarships will be available for some participants, Kreider said.

Kreider said there are no immediate plans to release the names of the volunteers, and the first session will not be open to the media.

"People need to be able to ask all these questions about basic science ... and we really want people to feel comfortable to ask any questions they need to ask," Kreider said.

Annapolis, Md., Mayor Ellen O. Moyer is among the initial group of activists heading to Nashville.

"I'm honored to be a part of this first training program," she told The (Baltimore) Sun. "There comes a point in time when we have to say, 'Enough is enough.'"

Oh, I would love to watch that.

"Stand up straighter and stiffer. You want them to think you're really a tree. Hey, stop using inflection in your voice. And I think I saw you cracking a facial expression. Double your botox injections if you have to. Your face must be totally bland...

Shalom.

What about all the jet fuel that'll be burned?

What about all the energy the air conditioning in the hotel rooms will use?

What about all those poor, poor trees that will have to be cut down to produce all that paper money?

"People need to be able to ask all these questions about basic science ... and we really want people to feel comfortable to ask any questions they need to ask," Kreider said.

Somebody ask me about the basic science! The science these wackos use is Toon Science. It is imaginary. You might as well be telling people that based on all we know about biology, if a dolphin mated with an elephant, dolphins would be exist on land and interact with civilization.

Here it the first part of the class:

"Before we start today, everyone please take the pill you were given on your way in."

And Branson just promised $3 Billion. The "warming" thing is their excuse to try to tyrannize over us in a thousand different ways, and dream up new ways to seize our property and make us miserable. This was the guy who gave us the "Al Gore Four-flusher"--the toilets that don't work.

Gore (and Clinton) revealed the extent of their commitment to the Kyoto Protocol in 1997 -- when they failed to deliver a single Senate vote for it. Clinton/Gore never submitted the Protocol to the Senate for ratification.

What, Al's starting his own cult now? There is an empty campsite down in Guyana he can use. Former home of the original Kool Aid drinkers. There was about 1000 of them too, so the size is perfect for Al Gore an his volunteers.
