  • Limbaugh’s Al Gore Armageddon Clock About To Hit Zero After Ten Years

    01/04/2016 7:34:56 AM PST · by servo1969 · 62 replies ^ | 1-2-2015 | KERRY PICKET
    Former Vice President Al Gore made a prediction for the earth's point of no return 10 years ago and talk radio host Rush Limbaugh held him to it since that day in 2006. The countdown clock on Limbaugh's site has been running for nearly 10 years since Gore's apocalyptic prediction about the earth as a result of greenhouse emissions. Less than a month remains in the countdown. Gore predicted, when his film "An Inconvenient Truth" was first released at the Sundance Film Festival, that the earth would be in "a true planetary emergency" within the next ten years unless drastic...

Appearing on Meet the Press, Todd first said the Administration regrets President Obama's claim that this would be a "red line" adding "They didn't want to go public last week that they had this early evidence" and only did so because "they knew Congress was going to get this briefing and it was all going to get out" (video follows with transcript and commentary): Chuck Todd: Obama Didn't Want To Go Public With Syrian Chemical Weapons Evidence CHUCK TODD: I...

    Green-minded campaigner Al Gore has been left red-faced after being accused of leaving his car running for almost an hour while he gave a lecture on sustainable development. It is alleged that Gore made the gaffe while he spoke at the School of Business, Economics and Law in Gothenburg, Sweden on Wednesday. His mistake was compounded further by the fact that he had asked his distinguished guests to attend the event by public transport in order to minimize CO2 emissions. However, environmental website Climate Depot alleges that he arrived in a rental car from the airport and did not shut...

    In fact, I shouldn’t have been here for most of my life. Friday is June 18. On June 18 exactly 50 years ago, I was returning home from two weeks’ annual active duty in the Army Reserve. It was peacetime, so I never heard a shot fired in anger − unless you count people at the rifle range who were irritated by their low scores. But I still came within inches of being killed in the line of duty. I was driving north on U.S. 101 near Camp Roberts, when an elderly couple entered the freeway driving south. The problem...

    The key players are now all in place in Washington and in state governments across America to officially label carbon dioxide as a pollutant and enact laws that tax we citizens for our carbon footprints. Only two details stand in the way, the faltering economic times and a dramatic turn toward a colder climate. The last two bitter winters have lead to a rise in public awareness that CO2 is not a pollutant and is not a significant greenhouse gas that is triggering runaway global warming.

The Nobel Peace Prize winner urged the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to push for a U.S.-brokered treaty in December in Copenhagen, Denmark, where the United Nations will host a climate change conference. Only the United States can lead such an effort, he said. “This is the one challenge that could completely end human civilization, and it is rushing at us with such speed and force,” said Gore, who won an Oscar for the...

He can also supposedly identify what specific variables we can and should manipulate now so as to favorably change the outcome of countless diverse interactions of innumerable variables for an assured and beneficial outcome.

    They just don't make Nobel Prizes the way they used to. That's the feeling we get after hearing that Al Gore was named co-winner of the Nobel Peace Prize yesterday for his global warming alarmism. The other co-winner was the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations group of scientists. It was easy enough to understand how Hollywood awarded Gore an Oscar for his climate movie ''An Inconvenient Truth.'' The Academy Award judges live in the land of make-believe. But the Nobel is a serious prize and its judges are supposed to do better work than the movie crowd....

    Few politicians can resist the urge to exploit consumer angst over gasoline prices, and thereby deflect where the blame certainly lies — with them. Here are 10 things the politicians won’t tell you: 1. At over $3.00 a gallon, the U.S. inflation-adjusted price for gasoline in May 2007 is now less than it was in 1981, a remarkable decrease in price over a 25 year period during which real prices in other sectors, such as health and education have tripled and quadrupled. 2. This decline in the price of gasoline since 1981 is enjoyed almost exclusively in the U.S. In...
