    So, how are the settled science climate changers, global warmers, global coolers going to explain last weekend's "snowmageddon" "snowcalypse" (not my words), where several more inches than normal of the white stuff temporarily buried a large section of the eastern United States? But...but...snow in January, snow in winter wasn't supposed to happen anymore, according to the Great Minds of Science who have built a nice money-making racket on denying reality. For instance, take Nobel Peace Prize winner (read, and try not to laugh, his climate change acceptance speech here and old male white Oscar winner (listen to his acceptance speech...
  • Gore to visit Nova's coral reef research center [$15 Million Fed Stimulus Grant]

    HOLLYWOOD, Fla. (AP) -- Former Vice President Al Gore is slated to speak at the opening of Nova Southeastern University's $50 million coral reef research center. The South Florida center will focus on protecting coral reefs around the world and will cultivate coral species in nurseries for re-introduction to the ocean. Florida is home to most of the nation's coral reefs. Nova received a $15 million dollar federal stimulus grant to help fund the center. University officials said the center has created 22 new academic jobs, 300 construction jobs and will employ 50 graduate students....

    Religious faith is a source of strength in many people's lives. But religious faith when taken too far can prove ludicrous -- or disastrous. On Oct. 22, 1844, thousand of Millerites, having sold all their possessions, climbed to the top of hills in Upstate New York to await the return of Jesus and the end of the world. They suffered "the great disappointment" when it didn't happen. In 1212, or so the legends go, thousands of Children's Crusaders set off from France and Germany expecting the sea to part so they could march peaceably and convert Muslims in the Holy...
  • The Ethanol Idiocy that Will Not Die(even Goracle can't kill it)

    December 14, 2010 12:00 A.M. The Ethanol Idiocy that Will Not Die Bipartisan common sense is no match for the inertia of a government subsidy. When Al Gore drops an environmental fad, it has truly reached its expiration date. In his wisdom, the Goracle recently acknowledged what almost all disinterested observers concluded long ago: Ethanol is a fraud. It has no environmental benefits, and harmful side effects. The subsidies that support its use are an object lesson in the incorrigibility of Washington’s gross special-interest politics. It is the monster that ate America’s corn crop.

    Gore calls for major protests on climate change inaction By Russell Berman - 08/17/10 04:54 PM ET Former Vice President Gore is calling for major rallies to protest congressional inaction on climate change. In a post on his personal blog headlined “The Movement We Need,” Gore linked to and quoted from an Australian wire service report that “tens of thousands of protesters … have taken to the streets across Australia to urge the major political parties to take action on climate change.” “Across the world, when politicians fail to take action to solve the climate crisis, people are taking action,”...

    Climate Fraud: Al Gore resurfaces in an op-ed to say that nobody's perfect, everybody makes mistakes and climate change is still real. And he has some oceanfront property in the Himalayas to sell you. If hyperbole and chutzpah had a child, it would be the opening paragraph of Gore's op-ed in Sunday's New York Times. Gore surfaced from the global warming witness-protection program to opine that despite admissions of error and evidence of fraud by various agencies, we still face "an unimaginable calamity requiring large-scale, preventive measures to protect human civilization as we know it." Perhaps he's trying to protect...

    Hoaxes: Instead of having his Nobel Prize rescinded for espousing climate fraud, the prophet of doom is set to receive an honorary doctorate of laws and humane letters from the University of Tennessee for his work. (snip) Gore has not changed the planet for the better. He has pushed policies that have stunted economic growth and increased joblessness, poverty and hunger around the world. He's a climate charlatan, the Elmer Gantry of global warming, and it matters not if his latest undeserved award is printed on recycled paper.

    A lot has happened since Newsweek's Nov. 9 cover story -- mostrecently the retraction of Al Gore's rising-seas scenario. Climate Fraud: The godfather of climate hysteria is in hiding as another of his wild claims unravels — this one about global warming causing seas to swallow us up. We've not seen or heard much of the former vice president, Oscar winner and Nobel Prize recipient recently as the case for disastrous man-made climate change collapses. Perhaps he's off reading how scientists were forced to withdraw a study on a projected sea level rise due to global warming after finding two...

'Vice President Gore's career has been marked by visionary leadership, and his work has quite literally changed our planet for the better," UT Knoxville Chancellor Jimmy G. Cheek said in a prepared statement. We are not making this up, though we will not dispute Gore's having had visions.

    "One cause of the blunders that have made the Met Office a laughing stock is less widely appreciated, however. It is that the multi-million pound computer it uses to assist its short-term forecasting for Britain is also one of the four main official sources of data used by the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to predict global warming. In this respect the IPCC's computer models have proved just as wrong in predicting global temperatures as the Met Office has been in forecasting those mild winters and heatwave summers." "In recent months, in fact, a curious little drama has...
  • Zero rate of VAT on carbon credits amid fraud fears (UK)

    Financial Times ^ | 07/31/09 | Vanessa Houlder
    Drastic action to stop a potential multi-billion fraud was taken by the Treasury yesterday when it imposed a zero rate of value added tax on carbon credits, the allowances issued as part of a scheme to help curb greenhouse gas emissions. Losses to the exchequer so far are unlikely to have exceeded a few hundred millions pounds but the Treasury said in a statement that "there now exists a substantiated and increasing risk of the UK becoming a major target for the fraudsters during the next few months". The move is highly unusual because changes to VAT need to be...

    Texas oil billionaire T. Boone Pickens said on Wednesday he has delayed his plan to build the world's largest wind farm in the Texas Panhandle, blaming financing problems and transmission limitations. "I didn't cancel it," Pickens said after a press conference on Capitol Hill. "Financing is tough right now and so it's going to be delayed a year or two.""I had hoped that Pampa would be the starting point, but transmission issues and the problem with the capital markets make that unfeasible at this point," Pickens said in a statement. "I expect to continue development of the Pampa project, but...

    Speaking in Oxford at the Smith School World Forum on Enterprise and the Environment , sponsored by The Times, Mr Gore said: “Winston Churchill aroused this nation in heroic fashion to save civilisation in World War II.” He added: “We have everything we need except political will but political will is a renewable resource.” Gore admitted that it was difficult to persuade the public that the threat from climate change was as urgent as the threat from Nazi Germany.

    "House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) slowed Democrats’ attempt to pass a sweeping climate-change legislation Friday evening, reading page-by-page through a 300-page Democratic amendment before allowing a roll call vote." "Boehner, whose move threatened to postpone a vote well into the evening – on a day that has already seen hours of contentious debate. House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Henry Waxman (D-Calif.), one of the bill’s sponsors, interrupted Boehner’s filibuster with a parliamentary inquiry as to whether there was any limit to how long the Ohio Republican could speak – and suggested that he was hoping to talk so...

    "Energy bills will soar to more than £5,000 a year within the next decade, experts warned last night. Prices are expected to rise by 42 per cent annually forcing thousands of families into fuel poverty. Analysists at uSwitch.com said that the average annual bills have doubled from £580 five years ago to £1,243 today. By 2020 they are expected to quadruple as Britain increasingly relies on outdated infrastructure and green energy policies. Last night experts warned that we were entering a 'new era' of high cost fuel charges." "Ann Robinson policy director at uSwitch.com said: 'This is a wake-up call...

    The coal industry is pushing back against a climate change bill that would likely curb coal use by circulating a map that shows which states would see their electric bills increase the most under the legislation. But supporters of the bill say the industry’s figures are off the mark and don’t factor in ways the bill will offset rising energy costs or the jobs that it will create. Lobbying has intensified, with Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Henry Waxman (D-Calif.) pressing for a floor vote next week. Waxman reported progress on Thursday in talks with Democrats from rural states who...

    A mysterious trip to L.A. by Al Gore now makes sense since TMZ broke the news of his daughter Kristin Gore's divorce. Here's what we know: The former veep made a covert trip to LAX last weekend. Sources told TMZ details of Gore's Saturday arrival. He blew out of town early Monday. We're told Gore made some sort of detour to L.A. He flew into the Southwest Airlines terminal -- which typically has regional flights -- picked up four bags of luggage, and left by limo. This was puzzling since the Nobel Prize winner rarely makes a move without alerting...

    Evidently, it pays to tell people that the Arctic is melting into slush. Al Gore told a German audience in December that the North Pole will disappear in 5 years: Chief climate change pimp Al Gore is making millions off of his fear-mongering. Pro Patria discovered that while Al Gore is scaring the daylights out of young children he is making millions from his green investments. So what has Al Gore gained from his Big Green escapades? According to public disclosure information, Gore was worth somewhere between $1 million and $2 million in 2000. Not quite eight years later, Gore...
