  • Al Gore doctored a video that’s supposed to prove his global warming theories

    The Daily Caller ^ | 09-29-2011 | Anthony Watts
    It has been over a week now since the Gore-a-thon, a.k.a. “24 hours of climate reality,” where Al Gore sent his latest message of global warming doom to the world. The front page of the Climate Reality Project has changed from “live mode” to offering clips of videos shown during the 24-hour presentation. One of the video clips there, “Climate 101,” tells the story of how to do a “simple experiment” at home to prove carbon dioxide causes global warming. But if you watch closely, you’ll see an “inconvenient truth” of the worst kind. Watch the portion of the video...

    Fox News reports the latest blow to the global-warming fraud: Dr. Ivar Giaever, a former professor with Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and the 1973 winner of the Nobel Prize in physics, abruptly announced his resignation Tuesday, Sept. 13, from the premier physics society in disgust over its officially stated policy that "global warming is occurring." The distinguished scientist has a long, slow fuse that has been burning for a while: Giaever earned his Nobel for his experimental discoveries regarding tunneling phenomena in superconductors. He has since become a vocal dissenter from the alleged “consensus” regarding man-made climate fears, Climate Depot reported,...

    Vice president Joe Biden and Department of Energy Secretary Stephen Chu joined forces this morning to officially bestow the $535 million loan guarantee on Fremont, Calif.-based Solyndra, one of the leading makers of cylindrical solar panels. The company plans to build a photovoltaic equipment plant large enough to employ 1,000 people permanently. Talk of the guarantee isn’t new — in fact, the DOE extended it to the company back in March and then waited for it to raise a requisite amount of funding. The loan is expected to cover 73 percent of the cost of the plant, which is slated...

    Al Gore: climate science "reality" versus Republicans Photo 4:00pm EDT By Deborah Zabarenko, Environment Correspondent WASHINGTON (Reuters) - For Al Gore, the choice is obvious: Either accept scientific reality about climate change or believe what the fossil fuel industry is paying some Republican candidates to say. "Anti-climate lobbyists ... give massive campaign contributions and they're not shy about making it clear to the candidates they support that there's a quid pro quo. In return for getting their money, these candidates have to pretend that they really believe this nonsense," the longtime climate change campaigner said on Wednesday in a telephone...

    An effort to "expose" climate change skeptics will instead show that Gore is a charlatan. Unfortunately for Al Gore, but fortunately for the rest of us, much of what we will hear in his 24 Hours of Reality extravaganza starting Wednesday evening is pure fantasy. Gore is completely wrong when he tells us that the science of climate change is settled. If his “Climate Reality Project” actually did promote climate realism, he would tell us that the science is in a period of negative discovery — the more we learn, the more we realize we do not understand about this,...

And judging by his recent remarks to a liberal gathering in Colorado, it appears he is feeling like a loser these days. Speaking Aug. 4 at the Aspen Institute, Gore claimed global warming critics have used the same tactics allegedly used by the tobacco industry to prevent needed anti-smoking regulations for four decades, according to The Colorado Independent, a liberal website.

    Climate change forecasts have for years predicted that carbon dioxide would trap heat on Earth, and increases in the gas would lead to a planetwide rise in temperatures, with devastating consequences for the environment. But long-term data from NASA satellites seems to contradict the predictions dramatically, according to a new study. There is a huge discrepancy between the data and the forecasts that is especially big over the oceans, said Dr. Roy Spencer, a research scientist at the University of Alabama in Huntsville and U.S. science team leader for the Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer -- basically a big thermometer flying...

Rep.

That is, if they are talking about the natural cooling effects of La Nina and the tendency for tornado outbreaks to be associated with cooler (not warmer) climate conditions. But I suspect that’s just the opposite of the message they will be preaching. So, let’s look...

    The media has been having a prolonged belly laugh at a group that had the temerity to suggest that the world would end today. Of course it's ridiculous when Harold Camping predicted that the world will be over today, but not when Al Gore predicted that the North Pole would melt in five years. True believers in Gore would say that's the difference between science and eschatology. But when bogus science warns us of an apocalypse if we don't follow the tenets of their ideology, then how much difference is there anyway? Of course no one expects MSNBC to do...

    Political Wives' 'Tipper Point' Is Way Too LateBy Sandra Kobrin WeNews commentator Thursday, May 19, 2011 Maria Shriver asked for privacy this week in the matter of her breakup with Schwarzenegger over his "love child." Sandra Kobrin says sorry, but when a woman stays married to a powerful womanizer, the personal turns deeply public and political. Tipper Gore is the woman now divorced from her husband, former Vice President Al Gore, a prominent social activist, after 40 years. In June 2010, she gave notice just three weeks before allegations of sexual abuse by her husband against a massage therapist in...

    Al Gore Denounces Rupert Murdoch's 'Abuse of Power'By Adam Martin 01:03 PM ET Al Gore and Rupert Murdoch have never been best friends, but now they're locked in a very public clash, at the root of which sits Keith Olbermann, who recently joined Gore's Current TV. Gore took a swipe at Murdoch in the press today, telling the Guardian that it was an "abuse of power" for the News Corporation magnate to force his left-leaning Current TV off the air in Italy because it didn't fit his "idealogical agenda." Current got the abrupt word three weeks ago that the digital...
  • Would you buy the Unabomber's copy of Al Gore's book?

    Earlier today I heard a news flash that the Unabomber's possessions were being auctioned off and that was the first thing that came to mind. I've since looked at some of the things that're being auctioned, but I didn't see that book among the things listed.(though it seems reasonable that if Gore's book is among the items, the media wouldn't mention it)

    It’s like watching the same train wreck — twice. Our politicians are starting to commit the same wasteful blunders, resulting in the same perverse consequences, as the Europeans have in pricing carbon dioxide emissions, ostensibly to fight climate change. The harbinger of many bad things to come for us is now happening in B.C. There, the provincial government is forcing the transfer of millions of tax dollars from cash-strapped schools, hospitals and other public institutions, by requiring them to buy carbon offsets. Money which then benefits hugely profitable energy companies like Encana. This is eerily reminiscent of what happened in...

    Remember the trailer for Sacred Science Gore’s “documentary” An Inconvenient Truth? Many were swept up. Emotional sentences and trigger words flashed before our eyes: AT SUNDANCE IT RECEIVED THREE STANDING OVATIONS. (Translation: If left-liberals clap hysterically in groupthink settings then it must be compellingly complex.) IT WILL SHAKE YOU TO YOUR CORE. (Translation: You, the viewer need to be shaken from your intellectual slumber.) IF YOU LOVE YOUR PLANET… IF YOU LOVE YOUR CHILDREN… YOU HAVE TO SEE THIS FILM. (Translation: Abandon critical-thinking skills. The leftwing Democrat has decided that we need to show love to our planet. Also your...

    I just bumped into a Greenpeace activist on my lunch break. My question du jour was this: "So do you honestly think that man can't stop nature from suddenly wiping out 25,000 Japanese people in under 15 minutes, but he can control the climate?" "Well, not so much control...er, ah, eh, ummmm....."
