    “Africa’s 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...

    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 it’s 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-sun’s greenhouse effect, resulting in surface temperatures of about 870 degrees Fahrenheit. Gore added that it’s 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...

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.

    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...

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...

    HE'S BEEN CRAZY FOR A WHILE NOW As we and others have repeatedly noted, one of the major unreported stories of the last week was Al Gore's anti-American speech in Saudi Arabia. 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...

    The tragedy of Al Gore isn't that he lost the presidency in a fluke--but that he was never really suited for the job in the first place. EVERY DAY, it becomes more and more obvious that a dreadful wrong has been done to Al Gore. No, not the outcome of the 2000 election, though that would have been gruesome for anyone. The election was a tie, each side had grounds to complain about one court or another, and each had reason to believe that some fluke had cost it an unknowable number of votes. In the end, the bad luck...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Democrat Al Gore, criticizing President Bush as he tests the waters for another possible presidential bid, accused the administration Thursday of an "attack on civil liberties" and ignoring signs that Osama bin Laden had been planning a terrorist attack on U.S. soil. It was the former vice president's second scathing attack on Bush in a week. Speaking at a Democratic fund-raising breakfast in Wilmington, Del., Gore took issue with the administration's handling of intelligence information prior to the Sept. 11 attacks and for its treatment of some terrorism suspects since then.

    Al Gore. State election officials ultimately declared George W. Bush the winner by a margin of 537 votes, but during and after the election dispute, questions remained about the uncounted ballots of 175,010 voters, ballots that had been rejected by error-prone tabulating machines employed in many Florida counties. Confusion and conflict, much of it generated by partisan intrigue, prevented these ballots from being counted during the election controversy. However, in 2001 every uncounted ballot was carefully examined in a scientific study by the University of Chicago, which concluded that when all the votes were counted, more votes had been cast...
