    Former Vice President Al Gore showed up at the United Nations climate summit in Lima, Peru Wednesday to show creative support for an international global warming treaty. Gore quoted poets from three different languages, according to the news site Responding to Climate Change. Apparently, Gore quoted poetry from China, Spain and the United States ó likely because China, Europe and the U.S. are the worldís top emitters of carbon dioxide emissions.

    ~snip~ The former U. S. Vice President arrived early, but did not start speaking until 1:30. That may be because there werenít many people in the very large room. By the time he began to speak, perhaps half the seats were occupied. More people came as he continued talking. At the end, he got a polite round of applause. Such are the indignities of being a former movie star. Goreís talk was an update of the slide-show immortalized in the sci-fi classic, ďAn Inconvenient Truth.Ē But not an update that replaces its numerous false and misleading claims. For instance, Goreís...

    Was It Too Soon to Be Sustainable? Warren, Vt. ó Dotty Kyle and Eric Brattstrom had an ambitious vision for the home they would build when they sold their bed-and-breakfast here seven years ago and retired. They were environmental and community advocates, so they wanted it to be as sustainable as possible ó ideally net-zero, producing as much energy as it used. And because they would be living on a modest fixed income, they needed to make sure it was inexpensive to maintain. But they didnít want to scrimp on luxury or size, so against their architectís advice they insisted...

    The world is locked into 1.5įC global warming, posing severe risks to lives and livelihoods around the world, according to a new climate report commissioned by the World Bank. The report, which called on a large body of scientific evidence, found that global warming of close to 1.5įC above pre-industrial times Ė up from 0.8įC today Ė is already locked into Earth's atmospheric system by past and predicted greenhouse gas emissions. Such an increase could have potentially catastrophic consequences for mankind, causing the global sea level to rise more than 30 centimeters by 2100, droughts to become more severe and...

    As we speculate about the next election, a fun thing for us Cowboys fans to do on a "bye weekend" is to speculate that 2016 could be the perfect campaign to revive former VP Al Gore. Let's start by saying that Mr. Gore is the perfect alternative to Hillary Clinton. He is liked by the left and can claim to have "won" an election. Furthermore, I think that a lot of the left knows that Senator Warren is charming but unelectable. There is also a real vacuum in the Democrats' bench. Who else is out there? Gov.

    Emily Gosden, The Telegraph August 26, 2014 The "pause" in global warming may last another decade before surface temperatures start rising again, according to scientists who say heat is being stored in the depths of the Atlantic and Southern Oceans. Global average surface temperatures rose rapidly from the 1970s but have been relatively stable since the late 1990s, in a trend that has been seized upon by climate sceptics who question the science of man-made warming. Climate change scientists have proposed more than a dozen theories to explain the "hiatus", which they say is a "distraction" from the widespread consensus...

    The Press vs. Al GoreHow lazy reporting, pack journalism and GOP spin cost him the election One month after formally kicking off his presidential campaign, Vice President Al Gore paddled down the Connecticut River in New Hampshire on July 22nd, 1999, spreading his green theme of protecting the environment and pausing for a photo op. His message was quickly drowned out, though, when the Washington Times' Bill Sammon reported that local authorities had granted Gore a special favor when they released nearly 4 billion gallons of water from a nearby dam into the drought-stricken river in order to keep the ...

    You may not have known it, but there is an infant-mortality crisis sweeping the country. An hour-long documentary from the new cable-news channel Al Jazeera America called attention to the situation, with correspondent Sebastian Walker reporting from Cleveland, Ohio, ďAmericaís infant-mortality capital.Ē There, he spoke with new mothers about why a country that spends so much on health care is ďfailing to ensure the health of its newest citizens.Ē A disproportionate number of African-American babies die in the first year of their lives. ďSo you have this huge, huge disparity, and thatís kind of business as usual. Itís been going...

    This is a worthy topic for continued congressional exploration. In short, the video and accompanying narrative dissect how, at his Friday Capitol Hill appearance touting a scheme to ration energy while in the process rewarding business who helped write the scheme: Al Gore obfuscates, downplays and refuses to discuss the role that CEOs have played in crafting his Cap-and-Trade C02 trading schemes and carbon swapping systems.Al Gore tries to put a lid in Congressional committee testimony on a little reported but vitally important subject in the global warming, carbon-tax ‚Äėdebate‚Äô- the new derivatives bubble in the emerging green-energy credit-swap market‚Ķ.The...

    Between 1989 and 2010, Congress rejected nearly 700 cap-tax-and-trade and similar bills that their proponents claimed would control Earthís perpetually fickle climate and weather. So even as real world crises erupt, President Obama is using executive fiats and regulations to impose his anti-hydrocarbon agenda, slash Americaís fossil fuel use, bankrupt coal and utility companies, make electricity prices skyrocket, and ďfundamentally transformĒ our economic, social, legal and constitutional system. Citing climate concerns, he has refused to permit construction of the Keystone XL pipeline, and blocked or delayed Alaskan, western state and offshore oil and gas leasing and drilling. Heís proud that...

    Honesty, it‚Äôs difficult to know where to begin tracking the irony in this story. Al Gore launched Current TV in large part on the financial and political basis of his global-warming crusade and entrepreneurship, which predictably went nowhere even with high-profile headliners like Keith Olbermann. Gore then improbably convinced Al Jazeera ‚ÄĒ which is owned by the royal family of the oil-pumping emirate of Qatar ‚ÄĒ that the channel was worth a half-billion dollars on the basis of its penetration into cable and satellite-TV systems in the US. That deal, by the way, got cinched only after Gore began...

    Mukhlis Barzaq, head of the research unit of the Association of Palestinian Islamic Scholars Abroad was interviewed recently on a Turkish TV channel. Barzaq claimed the Jews own the largest media outlets in the U.S., infiltrate election campaigns and practiced extortion, using sex and money to gain political and economic control and to destroy the moral values of nation of the country. While the mainstream media has given some coverage to the growing anti-Semitism in Europe, they have largely ignored the widespread hatred in the Muslim world. Unlike the hatred in Europe, the authorities, even in so-called moderate countries...

The lawsuit was filed under seal in the Delaware Court of Chancery, but Gore and Hyattís attorney David Boies said in a statement, ďAl Jazeera America wants to give itself a discount on the purchase price that was agreed to nearly two years ago. We are asking the Court to order Al Jazeera America to...

    Former Vice President Al Gore and business partner Joel Hyatt have filed a lawsuit against Al Jazeera on charges of fraud and material breaches in their acquisition of Current Media, POLITICO has learned.

The lawsuit was filed Friday morning by David Boies, attorney for Al Gore and Joel...
