    Hope you're all staying warm this Ides of March? A bit chilly where you are? I suspect Algore is becoming a tad frosty AND grumpy since his Globalist, NWO GLOBALONEY WARMING SCAM is falling apart before his eyes. Not to worry about old Al. The $500 million or so he's scammed over the years will allow him to stay snug - not to mention crazy - as the proverbial bedbug he's become. (Am I the only voter who believes that Trump has understood all that from the get go and why he pulled out of the Paris Accord and will...

    The U.S. is still on schedule to meet its obligations under the Paris Climate Agreement despite its decision to pull out of the accord, Gore said Thursday"Several governors of our largest states, hundreds of cities and thousands of U.S. businesses are now ensuring that the U.S. will not only meet but exceed the commitments it made under the Paris Agreement," Gore, who was speaking on a panel at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, said Thursday. Under the agreement, reached at the end of 2015, world leaders committed to making sure global warming stays "well below" two degrees Celsius...

    Is climate change losing its luster as an issue for the Hollywood left? Or have so many "Inconvenient Truths" about global warming been debunked that it has forced Hollywood into an embarrassed silence? The sequel to Al Gore's 2006 documentary An Inconvenient Truth released in 2017 and titled An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, failed to pick up a single Oscar nomination. The 2006 film won "Best Documentary" and "Best Song."

    WASHINGTON — Once considered a long shot among a dozen or more potential running mates for Al Gore, Sen. Richard Durbin has emerged as one of a few serious contenders, Democratic strategists say. Sen. Durbin confirms meeting once and talking twice by telephone in recent weeks with former Secretary of State Warren Christopher, who is conducting the vice-presidential search process for the Gore campaign. "Is he on the list? Yes," says a senior Democratic Party official from the Midwest with close ties to the campaign. "Is he strong? Absolutely." While he once laughed off the veepstakes speculation, Sen. Durbin now...

    Former Vice-President Al Gore confidently brushed aside the possibility that this past week's bitter cold across much of North America might indicate that the global warming he has profitably been hyping for the last 15+ years could be mistaken. "The theory of global warming, or climate crisis that I now like to call it, postulates that any change in the weather merely confirms the global warming hypothesis," Gore declared. "The most important action anyone can take at this time is to continue to buy copies of my books and movies explaining how it all fits together." Meanwhile, observations of solar...

    Former Vice President Al Gore has weighed in on the record cold and snow in the U.S. “It’s bitter cold in parts of the US, but climate scientist Dr. Michael Mann explains that’s exactly what we should expect from the climate crisis,” Gore wrote on January 4 on Twitter. *snip* Gore’s Oscar-winning documentary An Inconvenient Truth did not warn of record cold and increasing snowfalls as a consequence of man-made global warming.

    NEW YORK –– Attorney General Janet Reno has decided not to name a special prosecutor to investigate the 1996 fund-raising activities of Vice President Al Gore, The New York Times reported Wednesday. Reno has rejected the recommendation of the head of the Justice Department's campaign finance unit, Robert J. Conrad Jr., which marks the third time that Reno has rejected such a recommendation to investigate Gore, the newspaper said. The Times reported that Conrad was the only prosecutor in the department who thought there would be a need for an independent counsel. The vice president has repeatedly maintained that he...

    **SNIP** The Oscar buzz comes despite pushback from skeptics, led by University of Alabama in Huntsville climatologist Roy Spencer, a former NASA scientist who accused Mr. Gore of attributing natural phenomena to human-caused climate change. In September, Mr. Spencer published an 84-page e-book, “An Inconvenient Deception,” which blasted the film as “bursting with bad science, bad policy, and some outright falsehoods.” “An Inconvenient Truth” was similarly rebuked by skeptics — Danish academic Bjorn Lomborg challenged it in a book and film called “Cool It”—but the movie earned $24 million at the box office, making it the 11th-highest grossing documentary of...

    Al Gore recently had a telling altercation with a journalist. The Spectator’s Ross Clark wanted to ask him about Miami sea-level rises suggested in the new film, “An Inconvenient Sequel.” The reporter started to explain that he had consulted Florida International University sea-level-rise expert Shimon Wdowinski. Gore’s response: “Never heard of him — is he a denier?” Then he asked the journalist, “Are you a denier?” When Clark responded that he was sure climate change is a problem but didn’t know how big, Gore declared, “You are a denier.” I was recently on the receiving end of a similar rebuff...

    Former Vice President Al Gore (D) was asked what advice he had for President Trump. The former Tennessee senator had only one word for the New York Republican: "Resign." Gore said Americans must take a look at the "climate crisis and how we can solve it." "Global warming is by far and away the most serious crisis we face," he said. Gore said there are 100 million tons of man-made pollution released into the atmosphere daily.

    BERLIN (REUTERS) - Former US vice-president Al Gore suggested on Tuesday that the presidency of Mr Donald Trump could end prematurely for "ethical reasons", drawing laughter from a packed movie theatre at the European premiere of his latest film on climate change. "We're only six months into the experiment with Trump. Some experiments are ended early for ethical reasons," Mr Gore said, acknowledging the "provocative" nature of his comment. Mr Gore said he was convinced that US cities, states and business executives would meet US obligations under the 2015 Paris agreement to fight climate change, despite Mr Trump's decision in...

    Donald Trump may have pulled the United States out of the Paris Agreement to combat climate change, but if former US vice president Al Gore is to be believed, Americans will fulfill its terms nonetheless. The 69-year-old environmental activist was in Berlin to preview “An Inconvenient Sequel,” a follow-up to his Oscar-winning 2006 film “An Inconvenient Truth” about global warming. Citing the axiom from physics that “for every action there is an equal counter-reaction,” Gore said that Trump’s election had galvanized and energized environmentalists in the US. “The good news is that we are working around [Trump],” Gore said. “The...

    As many of you will recall, Obama made a trip to Pakistan when he was at Occidental College. I am seeing indicators that this relates to the Awans' network and to Iraq and Iran's nuclear programs, which I'm putting out here for others to help fill the missing pieces in and to get this to the right people. First, a recap of Obama's Pakistan trip:Obama’s Russia Problem: Obama's Links to Soviet-era Spy Rings and Terrorist NetworksAt Occidental College, Obama became involved in radical student politics, deliberately networking with activist students and professors, as he mentions in his autobiography.

    RUSH: I went out to Los Angeles for the weekend. I had to go out there to play golf. Everybody I play golf with is gone, out of town here in Palm Beach. So I went out and, you know, it was a fabulous time. I played Bel-Air yesterday, and Jack Wagner was in the foursome, the famous actor. The guy is a scratch golfer, maybe plus one, knocks the ball 325 yards. Just the nicest guy, and he plays so well it’s intimidating. But I had a fine last three holes and our team pulled even and broke even....

The cool weather has been welcoming and there are signs that we'll see even cooler weather track into the region.p Thanks to a series of rare cold fronts this summer, temperatures have struggled to climb back to average in Mid-Missouri. That changes as we head into Wednesday, as temperatures will moderate back towards seasonable averages. Average...

    Ten years ago Al Gore took his global warming crusade to the movies with his documentary film An Inconvenient Truth, which Hollywood honored with an Oscar. The award was granted by the Academy of Motion Pictures, not by the Academy of Science. It would be difficult to justify a scientific award for a documentary film with outlandish predictions that never materialized, and which schools in Britain were only allowed to show if accompanied by “guidance” that contradicted many of the film’s unsubstantiated claims. Of course every award winning film needs a sequel, so this weekend Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Sequel:...

    Former vice president and Democratic presidential nominee Al Gore told HBO's Bill Maher he thinks he carried the state of Florida in 2000, a state that would have given Gore the presidency over George W. Bush. Gore, 69, visited Maher on HBO's "Real Time" on Friday to discuss his follow-up climate change documentary "An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power" when the host broached the issue of rising sea levels. .... “So when the sea levels rise, obviously we could lose Venice. We could lose Florida. And who would know better about losing Florida?” Maher joked, leading to some groans from the live...
