  • US, Saudi, Russia 'insulted' key global warming report: Al Gore

    Former US vice president and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Al Gore on Tuesday slammed the world's top oil producers -- his own country, Saudi Arabia and Russia -- for "insulting" a key and alarming report on climate change. A bloc of 44 small island nations -- many facing an existential threat from storm surges engorged by rising seas -- had called on the UN climate body to "welcome" a UN report on limiting global warming. But the United States, Russia and Saudi Arabia blocked the critical word change in the negotiating text of the COP24 summit in Poland. The text...
  • Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal Is ‘Pretty Much All Fantasy-land’

    Experts decry 'pie in the sky' environmental plan Since sweeping into Congress atop a wave of far-left support, Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) has been very clear what her number one goal is: a Green New Deal for America. The freshman congresswoman first attracted attention to the proposal when she joined more than 200 protesters staging a sit-in in support of a GND in Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's (D., Calif.) office. Since then and with Ocasio-Cortez's backing, the idea has swept through left-leaning media, attracting fawning reviews. It also has the support of a number of prominent left-wing environmental activists:...

    If human-induced climate change continues unchecked, 10 percent of the U.S. economy could evaporate by 2100, a 1,656-page federal report the White House slipped out on Black Friday (Nov. 23) warned — but a nearby world has an even hotter climate problem than ours, and scientists say we could learn some valuable lessons from it. That world is Venus, Earth's "evil twin," which was once nice enough — until something went wrong and the atmosphere began trapping a little too much heat. Scientists aren't positive precisely how events played out, but the runaway greenhouse effect that resulted is beyond debate:...
  • Gore Calls Trump ‘The Face of Climate Denial,’ Predicts 2020 Voters Will Want to Get Back to…

    President Trump has become “the face of climate denial,” global warming activist and former Vice President Al Gore said Wednesday night, telling The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah that the 2020 election will provide the opportunity for voters to “make a statement — that we want to get back on the track to the real America.” After Noah had some fun with Trump’s comment, during a recent Washington Post interview, that U.S. air and water were “at a record clean,” Gore turned serious. “It’s really significant, Trevor, that Donald J. Trump is now the face of climate denial,” he said. “His...

    Former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens plans to release his book, "The Making of a Justice: My First 94 Years,” in May, not long after his 99th birthday. The New York Times interviewed him for a piece about his memoir, at which point he laid out the three Supreme Court decisions he still believes, to this day, were the wrong decision.District of Columbia v. HellerThe 2008 landmark decision, often referred to as Heller, was a 5-4 decision that upheld an individual's right to possess a firearm for self-defense. There is no need to be part of a militia in order...
  • Study of Disputed Florida Ballots Finds Justices Did Not Cast the Deciding Vote [Bush v Gore]

    A comprehensive review of the uncounted Florida ballots from last year's presidential election reveals that George W. Bush would have won even if the United States Supreme Court had allowed the statewide manual recount of the votes that the Florida Supreme Court had ordered to go forward. Contrary to what many partisans of former Vice President Al Gore have charged, the United States Supreme Court did not award an election to Mr. Bush that otherwise would have been won by Mr. Gore. A close examination of the ballots found that Mr. Bush would have retained a slender margin over Mr....

    The Trump administration is, it goes without saying, deeply anti-science. In fact, it’s anti-objective reality. But its control of the government remains limited; it didn’t extend far enough to prevent the release of the latest National Climate Assessment, which details current and expected future impacts of global warming on the United States. True, the report was released on Black Friday, clearly in the hope that it would get lost in the shuffle. The good news is that the ploy didn’t work. The assessment basically confirms, with a great deal of additional detail, what anyone following climate science already knew: Climate...

    The end is near, we’re all going to die. Unless, that is, we empower government to control more of the economy and our lives. It’s a standard trick of the left – predict doom and gloom in the future in an attempt to scare the Hell out of people while promising to avoid it if we let them get their way. While this could apply to nearly anything Democrats are pushing on any given day, this week it’s about global cooling. I mean, global warming. Er, scratch that, climate change…for now, at least.The government issued another climate report on Friday,...

    Former Vice President Al Gore blasted the Trump administration on Friday for choosing to release a major climate change report on the day after Thanksgiving. "Unbelievably deadly and tragic wildfires rage in the west, hurricanes batter our coasts — and the Trump administration chooses the Friday after Thanksgiving to try and bury this critical U.S. assessment of the climate crisis," Gore said in a statement. "The President may try to hide the truth, but his own scientists and experts have made it as stark and clear as possible," the former vice president-turned climate change advocate added. The congressionally mandated federal...

    Time and Donald Trump do interesting things to a man. They make Al Gore glitter. It’s almost impossible not to be thinking of Gore now, with the words “Florida” and “recount” so prominent in the news, and it’s hard not to credit him with virtues absent in Trump and increasingly rare in politics these days. Grace in defeat, for one. For another: a commitment to democracy greater than a concern for self. Sure, the review of ballots that Gore’s campaign demanded in 2000, as he and George W. Bush waited to see who would get the Sunshine State’s electoral votes...

    At this point, Stacey Abrams, Bill Nelson, Andrew Gillum and Hillary Clinton should travel the country as the Sore Losers Tour 2019. “Sore Loserman” was the insult directed at 2000 presidential/vice presidential candidates Al Gore and Joe Lieberman, known on the campaign trail as “Gore Lieberman.” After losing to George W. Bush, Gore challenged the handling of the Florida vote counting, resulting in the closest presidential race in the history of the United States. Gore’s appeals for a recount went unheeded, resulting in Republicans all across America placing ‘Sore Loserman’ bumper stickers on cars.

    WARNING: GRAPHIC IMAGES - The unusual creature was born by cesarean section on a farm in the Philippines earlier this month but locals are worried it's a cursed 'mutant devil' A farmer was left shocked after his goat gave birth to a ‘half-pig half-human' creature. There are now fears the creature was cursed and could bring bad luck to the family. Some have even said the creature could be a ‘mutant devil’. Josephine Repique, 40, said the pregnant goat went into labour earlier this month on November 2 at the small farm in Sultan Kudarat, the Philippines. The two babies...

    As Florida finally wrapped up its contentious recount of the votes tallied in the recent midterm elections, a winner was finally declared: Al Gore is now the president of the United States. The recount process at long last found the "missing votes" that would have handed Gore the presidency back in 2000, making him the official president of the country. "Well, it's about time," Gore said in his acceptance speech. "Thanks to all the fine people that made this happen. It really is too bad that the earth is going to be destroyed by fire by 2015--err, I mean, 2019,...

    Matt Stone and Trey Parker — the “South Park” creators known for their take-no-prisoners mockery of cultural issues from both sides of the sociopolitical aisle — apparently are feeling a little guilty for mocking Al Gore’s climate change evangelism. See, way back in 2006, a “South Park” episode featured the former vice president warning South Park Elementary School students about the “single biggest threat to our planet” — i.e., ManBearPig, a monster representing climate change, NBC News reported. Gore was a month away from releasing “An Inconvenient Truth” when that episode came out — and the network noted that since...

Ocasio-Cortez appeared at a climate change town hall in College Point, a neighborhood in the New York City borough of Queens, where she discussed her "radical" plan to tackle global warming, according to a clip first flagged by the Republican National Committee.

    Former Vice President Al Gore said Friday that the United Nations' new report on climate change demonstrates that the world is experiencing a "global emergency." “We have a global emergency,” Gore said in an interview on PBS NewsHour. "You use a phrase like that and some people immediately say, ‘okay calm down, it can’t be that bad.’ But it it is." "What the scientists have warned us in this recent report is that if we do not take action quickly … then consequences down the road would be far, far worse than what we’re experiencing now," Gore added, stating that...

    Sears Holdings Corp. could file for bankruptcy as early as this week as the company assesses how to manage its more than $130 million in debt, The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday. The news outlet reported that Sears has $134 million in debt due on Monday. While chairman Edward Lampert could make the payment, the company has hired M-III Partners, a boutique advisory firm, to put together a possible bankruptcy filing. The Wall Street Journal reported that Lampert, whose hedgefund owns a majority of Sears' shares, is hoping to secure a restructuring of the company's debt, which would include the...

    Former Vice President Al Gore compared the Trump administration to an experiment that’s “terminated early for ethical reasons,” in an interview with MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell that also touched on the upcoming election and man-made global warming. On global warming, Gore repeated to Mitchell the line he uses in nearly every speech: “Every night on the television news is like a nature hike through the book of Revelation.”

Most tragically, the death toll of Category 1 Hurricane Florence stands at 18, including a 3-month-old baby, nowhere near the thousands predicted by scare-mongering Progressives.
