Al Gore is right!

01/06/2010

“Al Gore said the other week that climate change is “a principle in physics. It’s like gravity. It exists.” Sarah Palin agreed that “climate change is like gravity,” but added a better conclusion: Each is “a naturally occurring phenomenon that existed long before, and will exist long after, any governmental attempts to affect it.””  “Copenhagen’s Dodged Bullet

Comments to article on Philippine volcano erupting

12/22/2009

” Who is going to pay for all the greenhouse gases this volcano is pouring into the atmosphere? Surely the educated idiots from Copenhagen can talk this thing out of spewing out so much carbon and sulphur.

Say, how much CO2 is that baby pumping out?
Maybe we should raise taxes on the Philippines!

Don’t worry folks: Al Gore will legislate the closure of this source of global warming.

I sure hope that mountain had permission to exhale CO2 or bought carbon credits from Algore.

Quote of the day

12/11/2009

The great truth-monger Al Gore claimed yesterday that 40% of the Artic Ice Cap has already disappered, and that the other 60% will be gone in 5, 10, or 15 years. If almost half of the Artic ice has already melted, then why aren’t London, New York, Miami, Venice, Houston, Singapore, etc., under water?” — Christopher Monckton

"Copenhagen targets not tough enough, says Al Gore"

12/04/2009

“Greenpeace, WWF, and Al Gore have launched a new climate campaign designed to “educate the ignorant public of the necessity to drastically reduce carbon dioxide levels.” “It is absolutely critical for life on the planet that we reduce CO2 to 150 parts per million. Earth hangs in the balance”, said Mr. Gore. “The Copenhagen target of 450 is three times too high,” he said. Their website 150.edu can be accessed for a nominal fee ($1000), all proceeds going to savetheplanet.edu, an Al Gore subsidiary.

When denialists pointed out that 150 ppm is below the threshold required by vegetation to survive and would destroy all plant life, and hence all life, on Earth, Mr. Gore scoffed, “Don’t believe those lying denialists, they’re all funded by Big Oil.”” [The preceding two paragraphs are satire. The following is not.]

“Even if a deal is reached at the UN climate change talks in Copenhagen next week it will only be the first step towards the far more radical cuts that are needed in global carbon emissions, Al Gore, the former US Vice-President, told The Times last night.

Mr Gore said that to avoid the worst ravages of climate change world leaders would have to come together again to set more drastic reductions than those now planned.

“Even a final treaty will have to set the stage for other tougher reductions at a later date,” he said. “We have already overshot the safe levels of CO2 in the atmosphere.”” “Copenhagen targets not tough enough, says Al Gore

“The television news-watching world in America has not learned much about the so-called Climategate scandal because it has not really been mentioned on the air except for a notorious cable news channel named for a three-lettered, wily, wild animal that often seems to revel in debunking liberal shibbeloths.

Network news programs have been far more concerned with the obviously more important White House party-crasher story involving a couple of formally-dressed phonies.” “Take back Al Gore’s Oscar, 2 Academy members demand in light of Climategate

Gore cashes in — again — at your expense

09/25/2009

“A tiny car company backed by former Vice President Al Gore has just gotten a $529 million U.S. government loan to help build a hybrid sports car in Finland that will sell for about $89,000.

The award this week to California startup Fisker Automotive Inc. follows a $465 million government loan to Tesla Motors Inc., purveyors of a $109,000 British-built electric Roadster. Tesla, like Fisker, is a California startup focusing on high-end hybrids, with a number of celebrity endorsements that is backed by investors that have contributed to Democratic campaigns.

The awards to Fisker and Tesla have prompted concern from companies that have had their bids for loans rejected, and criticism from groups that question why vehicles aimed at the wealthiest customers are getting loans subsidized by taxpayers.

“This is not for average Americans,” said Leslie Paige, a spokeswoman for Citizens Against Government Waste, an anti-tax group in Washington. “This is for people to put something in their driveway that is a conversation piece. It’s status symbol thing.” …

Fisker’s top investors include Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, a veteran Silicon Valley venture-capital firm of which Gore is a partner. Employees of KPCB have donated more than $2.2 million to political campaigns, mostly for Democrats, including President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, a nonpartisan group that tracks campaign contributions. …

Asked whether Mr. Gore had any influence on Fisker’s application, the DOE’s Rogers said, “None at all.”” “Gore-Backed Car Firm Gets Large U.S. Loan
