We Cant Wish Away Climate Change By AL GORE
It would be an enormous relief if the recent attacks on the science of global warming actually indicated that we do not face an unimaginable calamity requiring large-scale, preventive measures to protect human civilization as we know it.
Of course, we would still need to deal with the national security risks of our growing dependence on a global oil market dominated by dwindling reserves in the most unstable region of the world, and the economic risks of sending hundreds of billions of dollars a year overseas in return for that oil. And we would still trail China in the race to develop smart grids, fast trains, solar power, wind, geothermal and other renewable sources of energy the most important sources of new jobs in the 21st century.
But what a burden would be lifted! We would no longer have to worry that our grandchildren would one day look back on us as a criminal generation that had selfishly and blithely ignored clear warnings that their fate was in our hands. We could instead celebrate the naysayers who had doggedly persisted in proving that every major National Academy of Sciences report on climate change had simply made a huge mistake.
I, for one, genuinely wish that the climate crisis were an illusion. But unfortunately, the reality of the danger we are courting has not been changed by the discovery of at least two mistakes in the thousands of pages of careful scientific work over the last 22 years by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. In fact, the crisis is still growing because we are continuing to dump 90 million tons of global-warming pollution every 24 hours into the atmosphere as if it were an open sewer.

Oh Owlgore shut up. Go drink some tea.
Algore is one of those “****ing ‘R’ words” that Rahm Emanuel is always telling us about. Sorry Al, “wish” all you want, your 15 minutes are over.
Translation: You can’t wish it into existence, no matter how badly you want to use it to enslave the world.
We wished away another ice age....see...it worked!!!
Like Obama and the congress does with the national debt?
Can we wish Albore away?
He’s just trying to protect the millions he’s got tied up in carbon credits.
Wish him into the corn field...
From the op-ed, “Later this week, Senators John Kerry, Lindsey Graham and Joe Lieberman are expected to present for consideration similar cap-and-trade legislation.”
So Lindsey Graham has sold out and is getting cap-and-trade in through the back door?
I'm sure that THE dork has a point. What it might be is a whole other question.
You can't wish away the monsters under the bed.
You can't wish away trolls.
You can't wish away vampires.
You can't wish away killer clowns.
You can't wish away boogey men.
You can't wish away honest politicians.
You can't wish away ghosts.
You can't wish away the Bermuda Triangle.
Nothing imaginary can be wished away.
He might be more believable if he would actually put his fat ass where his mouth is and say all of this under oath, say in a court room or in front of congress.
Yep, back door for Lindsey.
The theory and proof of AGW fails every test of what defines "science." Every one.
Everything that follows, thus, is clearly nonsense.
Why don't you debate Lord Monckton, Dummy? You can bring your ventriloquist James Hansen, even.
We can’t wish away Al Gore. More’s the pity.
Attacks? I don’t remember any attacks. Honest intellectual questioning, routine requests for data, alternative scientific explanations, some derisive laughter and satire, but no attacks.
Don’t tell me he’s paranoid, too.
Drill here, drill now, and use domestic natural gas. Develop small nuclear power plants for use by individual towns and cities.
The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly - it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over
The climate gets warmer or colder and there is nothing that mankind can do to change that fact. We can not undo the industrial revolution. Who are we to tell developing countries that they can’t have electricity or burn coal because Venice might flood or Al Gore might lose millions. It is unethical to allow third world countries to keep burning dung for heat and light while they could have access to electricity.
Globull warming is a socialist scam.
Hey, Al! Wanna buy a hockey stick?
[. . . requiring large-scale, preventive measures to protect human civilization as we know it.]
Translation: turn over trillions of dollars to AlGore and his buddies and they will try to keep the Earth from frying.
Feeling guilty yet, Algore?
nor do we want to wish away climate change. Climate change is part of nature, and nature provides us with all we need to sustain physical life.
No you don't you big fat liar. You have made money and gotten media recognition after your political career went into the toilet and you demanded a recount in Florida like the over-indulged brat that you have been your entire life.
"But unfortunately, the reality of the danger we are courting has not been changed by the discovery of at least two mistakes in the thousands of pages of careful scientific work over the last 22 years by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change."
No, you liar, we found out that people were lying. They used "tricks" - their word, not mine - to hide the fact the planet is not warming, as you claimed in your book. You screamed that the "consensus of scientists is clear" and that, "the science is settled." You were pushing a bigger load of crap than you did in your first Senate campaign when you told the tobacco farmers how you had raised tobacco on your farm in Tennessee. Fast forward to the Democratic National Convention when you gave a tearful speech about your sister who died from cancer. You have spend your entire life lying Mr. Gore.
"In fact, the crisis is still growing because we are continuing to dump 90 million tons of global-warming pollution every 24 hours into the atmosphere as if it were an open sewer."
Mr. Gore, one more time, the numbers were cooked. There is not an issue with the planet warming. The "90-million tons" figure is just a complete and utter lie in a long life filled with lies. I swear, I don't know who was worse, your racist pig of a father who got his money from land speculation back in Tennessee or you, a man who has never done one honest day's work in his entire life. You climbed into bed with Bill Clinton, arguably the sleaziest man to ever soil the White House, and you acted as if God himself had anointed you to run the world.
If you are not going to shut up about the world heating up, if you are going to continue to run around like a climate Henny Penney claiming that the "sky is falling", then I hope that you will finally just start walking every where you go. Reduce your carbon footprint and finally drop some pounds you fat, lying pig.
I guess when you stand to become a carbon credit billionaire, you fight to the bitter end.
How much has he made off this hoax now....$500,000,000?????
jeez, you can’t wish away hellbent control freaks either but it doesn’t hurt to ignore their idiotic means. Take all of your liberal “bans” and shove them up your A$$ spotted owl.
No we can’t wish away climate change or any other part of GOD’s plan for the universe. Further, why should we?
gore’s watching his dreams of money grabbing at taxpayers expense, drift away. And all his investments into the global warming green companies aren’t looking as good as they were before the big lie was exposed!
So who's right?
The godlike 0bama
or the Buddha like Gore?
AlGore hires someone to write this drek. He’s too lazy
We can’t wish away climate change. We can’t do anything about it, either. It has always been with us, and will always exist. It’s criminal to take a fact of nature and use it to try to hoodwink people into giving you money, Al Gore. You’re already rich enough, and have done little enough honest work to show us that you actually deserve your riches.
“I, for one, genuinely wish that the climate crisis were an illusion.”
What a lie—he would lose millions and millions if it were not so.
Oh hell yes.
Gramnesty and Frenchy Kerry (served in Nam) are now occupied trying to establish a price for 'carbon'.

Can we wish algore away?
True then but covered over by the algore hysterics.
U.S. Data Since 1895 Fail To Show Warming Trend

Hey Al if what your saying is true (its not if you understand basic science), then how come you guys had to cook all books for over 10 years?? How come they could not just use the data if what you are saying is true?
Your con man Al, and you belong in a jail cell. Shame on you for what you have done to our great nation.
“From the standpoint of governance, what is at stake is our ability to use the rule of law as an instrument of human redemption.” Al Gore
Isn’t that sad. So really at risk here is the power for the whacked out greenie statists to bludgeon the unenlightened into redemption and save Gaia.
CO2 is plant food not a farking pollutant.
Increased warming will lead to increased clouds which will lead to more reflected sun. It is a self regulating system that works much better than Al Gores brain.
But Al Gore is still a putz.
