  • Climate changers shocked and puzzled by snow in January

    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....
  • Cult of Global Warming Is Losing Influence

    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...

    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.

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.

    "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."

    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.

"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...

    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...

    Is Al Gore nuts? I’m serious. Is it possible that the disappointment of losing the presidential campaign eight years ago destabilized him? If you think about it, since then, he’s been a changed man. First he got fat. He went through a dramatic physical change. He put on a significant amount of weight and grew a beard and got reclusive. Then he lost the weight and found a cause. Manmade global warming. It absolutely became his theme in life. After being largely silent on the issue during eight years as the vice president and a good run in the Senate,...

    I ADMIT IT: I'm no environmentalist. But I like to think I'm something of a conservationist. No doubt for millions of Americans this is a distinction without a difference, as the two words are usually used interchangeably. But they're different things, and the country would be better off if we sharpened the distinctions between both word and concept. At its core, environmentalism is a kind of nature worship. It's a holistic ideology, shot through with religious sentiment. "If you look carefully," author Michael Crichton observed, "you see that environmentalism is in fact a perfect 21st century remapping of traditional Judeo-Christian...

    The former vice president’s new book is itself an assault on reason. The Assault on Reason, by Al Gore (Penguin Press, 320 pp., $25.95) The most surprising thing about The Assault on Reason, Al Gore’s current bestseller, is that for a little while it actually makes some sense. The first few dozen pages, while hyperpartisan, mainly excoriate a dumbed-down, trivia-and-celebrity-obsessed culture, and in the age of Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan who could disagree? But Al Gore is like one of those guys at a party with whom, once you get a few drinks in him, you never know what’s...

    On Thursday’s "Good Morning America," the ABC program touted a liberal New Yorker who is so concerned about the environment that he refuses to use toilet paper. GMA devoted eight and a half minutes of the May 10 show to promoting the cause of Colin Beaven, a man who, in addition to his bathroom stance, refuses to buy anything in packaging, won’t use transportation, even elevators, and insists that all his food be grown within 250 miles. According to liberal weatherman Sam Champion, who admiringly recounted Mr. Beaven’s story, "The rules may seem a little extreme." A little? Co-anchor Diane...
  • Al Gore, Ugly American

    05/03/2007 8:21:42 AM PDT · by presidio9 · 43 replies · 1,492+ views
    Does Al Gore have nothing better to do than butt into other countries' politics? In his grand bid to save the planet, he's damaging real nations and undercutting U.S. ties. He's worse than the Ugly American. Gore flew over to Canada last week and loudly blasted the Canadian government for its rejection of the Kyoto Treaty as "a complete and total fraud." Speaking at a Toronto screening of his movie "An Inconvenient Truth," he announced that the Canadian government's new, more realistic plan to reduce greenhouse gases "is designed to mislead the Canadian people." Not only did he offer an...

    Following are highlights from a speech about global warming and the coal industry delivered by Robert E. Murray, chairman, president and CEO of Cleveland-based Murray Energy Corp. to the New York Coal Trade Association in New York City last Friday. Most participants in the coal industry are very threatened and troubled by the so-called "global warming," or carbon emission constraint, measures that have been introduced into the Congress that will ration the use of coal, with much worse adverse consequences to our American citizens than those that I have already experienced in my lifetime as a result of enactment of...
  • It's Not Easy Being Green (Imhofe skewers Goracle- MSM sleeps on)

    "It's not easy being green. Just ask former Vice President Al Gore," the Fox News Channel's Terry Keenan writes at ????"While the newly anointed Oscar winner has made what Katie Couric called a 'triumphant return' to Capitol Hill on Wednesday, Gore was tripped up by a simple question from Oklahoma Sen. James Inhofe. Late into the hearing, Inhofe showed Gore a clip from his film, 'An Inconvenient Truth.' The clip challenged the audience with this question: 'Are you ready to change the way you live?' ????"Simple enough. But Inhofe took this question a step further, by placing it right...
  • Fat Offsets

    I am offering a breakthrough idea of magnificent proportions. Fat Offsets! No longer do you have to suffer from obesity. No longer do you have to hear jokes about love handles, padunkadunk butts, or other comments or phrases having the word "lard" in it. How does this work, you say? Well, you can buy "Fat Offsets." What does this mean? Offset means “neutralize,” “balance,” or “cancel out.” When we do certain activities like gorge our guts, stuff our faces or eat till our eyes bulge out we produce large amounts of Fat, or Adipose Tissue. Fat offsets counteract these activities...
  • New Yorker Editor David Remnick's Uncritical Idol Worship of Al Gore

    We can get a sneak preview of the MSM worship of Al Gore sure to follow his testimony before Congress tomorrow on the subject of global warming by reading David Remnick's glowing commentary about the former veep in the March 5 edition of the New Yorker. If you suffer at all from tooth decay, I advise you to skip over the rest because Remnick's idolatrous saccharine coated praise for Gore is sure to exacerbate your condition. Without a trace of ironic awareness that a Saturday Night Live skit is mocking people such as himself who believe that a Gore win...

    Climate Change: The former beneficiary of a polluting zinc mine and one of the biggest per capita emitters of greenhouse gases comes before Congress. Will we get the truth and nothing but, no matter how inconvenient? The current Democratic Congress is not much for genuine legislative accomplishment, but it's great theater, albeit the theater of the absurd. We have Valerie Plame's 16th minute of fame and an investigation into whether some U.S. attorneys who are political appointees might have been fired for political reasons by the administration they serve at the pleasure of. But things will really warm up when...

    | March 7, 2007 Al Gore was in Brussels today claiming that the EU was the vehicle which could inspire the world to act on “climate change”. The EU “has such an important role to play,'’ Gore told reporters in Brussels today after speaking at the World Biofuels Markets conference. “I’m trying to get my country to change its policies, but in the meantime, the EU is absolutely key to helping the world make the change it must.'’Gore claimed aside from global warming, there is also a coming water crisis that will lead to mass droughts. “There is a water...

    Al Gore buys carbon offsets as forgiveness for his sin of producing too much carbon dioxide, or something like that. BUT who does he buy these offsets from? According to a story published at Ecotality by Bill Hobbs, he buys them from Generation Investment Management, a company he co-founded, and serves as chairman. Gore helped found Generation Investment Management, through which he and others pay for offsets. The firm invests the money in solar, wind and other projects that reduce energy consumption around the globe… As co-founder and chairman of the firm … he “buys” his “carbon offsets” from himself,...
