  • 'Resign!': Al Gore Suggests Trump Should Step Aside

    Fox News ^ | August 17, 2017
    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.

    From the pages of the San Francisco Chronicle (political kissing cousin to the New York Times and Washington Post): Before jetting off to Paris for this week's star-studded global warming conference, Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf and her staff finally hit upon a plan to solve her first local environmental crisis — how to stop coal from being shipped through the Port of Oakland. The answer: Declare coal a health hazard.

    The Undercurrent posted a clip of Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush taking question while walking through the hall at the Road to Majority Conference sponsored by the Faith and Freedom Coalition in which he said he embraces the current reduction of carbon emissions. When asked about his climate change position Jeb said, I continue to embrace the reduction of carbon emissions that have taken place.

    The Right Scoop ^ | 1/28/2014 | Caleb Howe
    Africas projected to have more people than China or India by mid-century. More than China and India combined by the end of the century. And this is one of the causal factors that must be addressed. At the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland last week, Al Gore participated in a forum on climate change and how it affects the economy, and vice versa. In response to a question about whether he was happy to see increased willingness to act on global warming, Gore offered a rambling response that included the above eye-popper. Gore, like many other warmers, and in...

    Via the Daily Caller. Pro tip: The “you’re so wrong that you deserve to be shunned for your wrongness” approach works better when the number of people who agree with you is growing, not shrinking. That said, I do prefer this strategy to listening to him shriek with rage. If we’re going to go this route, though, should we really stop at shunning? It took more than scolding during personal conversations to turn the tide against racism; men and women had to march and Congress had to act. I wonder how far the Goracle would be willing to go legislatively...

    IBD Editorials ^ | June 28, 2011 | Staff
    Demographics: Former Vice President Al Gore has a new idea for saving us from global warming: fewer babies. It's scary to think this man was a heartbeat away from the presidency. 'One of the things we could do about (global warming)," Gore said recently, "is to change the technologies, to put out less of this pollution, to stabilize the population, and one of the principle ways of doing that is to empower and educate girls and women." That, he said, would cause population "to stabilize and societies begin to make better choices and more balanced choices." The logic is inescapable:...

    Al Gore has a new argument for why carbon dioxide is the global warming boogeyman -- and its simply out of this world. Testifying before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Wednesday with yet another one of his infamous slide shows, Gore observed that the carbon dioxide (CO2) in Venus atmosphere supercharges the second-planet-from-the-suns greenhouse effect, resulting in surface temperatures of about 870 degrees Fahrenheit. Gore added that its not Venus proximity to the Sun that makes the planet much warmer than the Earth, because Mercury, which is even closer to the Sun, is cooler than Venus. Based on this...

    Rapid City mayor Alan Hanks is telling residents to stay home and be safe today, and authorities in the Northern Hills and Rapid City closed off traffic completely except for emergencies. Please, stay off the roads until the weather clears. The wind is still gusting to 50 mph with heavy snow, he said. There are very few businesses that are going to open, so take a day off and enjoy it. Meanwhile, police said they would cite any motorists who got stuck in the numerous drifts citywide and were traveling on any non-essential business. Wind gusts in Rapid City were...

    Former Vice President Al Gore is harshly critical of President Bush in his new book, "The Assault on Reason," in which he claims that "the current White House has engaged in an unprecedented and sustained campaign of mass deception." In an interview with ABC News, Gore goes one step further on the war in Iraq, calling it "the worst strategic mistake in the whole history of the United States." However, Gore refuses to place the blame squarely on Bush. "When our country made a decision to invade Iraq, it's too partisan to simply blame that on the current president," he...

    Check out the weather charts for today in Texas. Global warming has hit hard, pounding the area with streams solidified humidity, and temperatures in the double digits. Temperatures in Texas continue to be higher than those in Alaska. Al Gore must have been buying a hell of a lot of "carbon credits" recently to have this incredible impact on Global Warming. I wish he could have received hi Nobel Peace Prize today in Dallas.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Al Gore -- star of an Oscar-winning movie, former U.S. vice president and the object of 2008 presidential speculation -- on Wednesday took his crusade against global warming to Capitol Hill. Glad-handing like the lifelong politician he was until losing the 2000 presidential race to George W. Bush, Gore called his return to Congress "an emotional occasion." But he did not mince words on what he termed the current climate crisis: "Our world faces a true planetary emergency." Before a joint House panel dealing with energy, air quality and the environment and the Senate Environment and Public...

    Al Gore is trying to resurrect his environmentalist crusade--and, perhaps, his political career--with a new film that depicts him as a courageous voice in the wilderness, speaking up for "an inconvenient truth" that challenges the entrenched political establishment. This is, of course, laughable. Everyone knows that the global warming theory is the dogma of the entrenched establishment. We know this because we are relentlessly barraged with global warming hysteria from political leaders, the mainstream media, and the government-scientific complex. We are constantly told that we are in imminent danger of dying from everything as catastrophic as massive flooding or as...

    Who knew Al Gore could be such fun? He's the toast of Cannes and was hilarious on Saturday Night Live. He's also Topic A in political conversation. A lot of Democrats start to sound a bit giddy when the subject of a Gore presidential run in 2008 comes up. Even with recent troubles in the GOP, many of them have been preoccupied with the weakness of their leaders and the party's uncertain future. When discussion turns to Gore, everyone gets excited.At the center of the Gore boomlet is the New Al Gore. He's full of the vision and ass-kicking clarity...

I've shaken my head in wonderment over what could have caused Gore to go so far over the top. Money, sure: the Saudis paid him more than a quarter of a million dollars. But they would have paid him even if he hadn't betrayed his country. To the extent that he did, anyway. For what it's worth, I was doing an internet search and ran across (this post)...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Former Vice President Al Gore called on Monday for an independent counsel to investigate whether President George W. Bush broke the law in authorizing domestic eavesdropping without court approval. U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales plans to testify in Senate hearings, expected next month, to give the administration's legal justification for the secret domestic eavesdropping operation. "A special counsel should be immediately appointed by the attorney general to remedy the obvious conflict of interest that prevents him from investigating what many believe are serious violations of law by the president," Gore said in a speech to The American...
