Al Gore Contributes to Global Warming!!

Even More About “An Inconvenient Truth”

Okay, for the last time…

Enough already! It seems like every week, I get email spouting propaganda that “I got right from ‘An Inconvenient Truth,'” like Al Gore had suddenly become Moses!

C’mon, people… gimme a break, okay?

I’ve made reference to this “movie” before. I don’t consider it a “documentary.” Documentaries are, by definition, based on “facts.” Al Gore’s spin on Global Warming isn’t the TRUTH. He uses twisted facts and bad science to stir the pot, because lemmings throw money at him, to appease them. We all know that the excesses of mankind have repercussions, but only an examination of the real facts will help us find the answers we need, to save our kids, and their kids.

And Gore isn’t doing it for “free,” he’s making millions of dollars to be the “carny barker” at the circus that he’s created. And don’t get me started on his “investments” into carbon trading companies. If the reports are true, Al Gore can actually buy carbon set-offs, and line his own pockets, at the same time! He actually  has a monetary interest in engaging in his B.S. laden alarmism.

“An Inconvenient Truth” is simply a very emotional series of “Convenient Lies,” that I truly believe was crafted by a guy who was tired of being out of the limelight, and was seeing his cash reserves dwindle down to near nothing. After all, Al Gore’s life of excess must be pretty pricey, what with his energy-glut of a mansion, his fleet of SUVs, and his private Gulfstream Jet!

al-gore-comic

Folks, Gore ain’t in this out of the goodness of his little calcified heart. Al Gore charges thousands (that’s right… thousands) of dollars a minute (I repeat, a MINUTE), for his tired old speech, that goes on and on like a well-rehearsed dog and pony show.

Goggle it! I’m not kidding!

Most of his “facts” have been proven to be based on scientific errors, bad science, conjectures, and generalizations, aimed at making him some kind of “lie-spouting energy messiah.” Al Gore KNOWS that most of his propaganda is not “factually based.” He’d be a fool not to. After all, if you really pay attention to Al Gore, he’ll go out of his way to use his “I’m so smart” speech. After all, “he” created the Internet. Remember? So, surely he must have researched his stageplay, before putting his neck in the noose by spouting his own “hot gases” about the globe’s predicament, right?

al-gore-inspirational-poster

Nope. Al knows that the media defines “fact” in this generation. All you have to do is trot yourself out, and say what people want to hear, and do the “puppet dance,” and they’ll embrace you like “turkey on Thanksgiving…”

(Don’t even get me started on that one. I’m part American Indian, and so is my wife. I got yer “Thanksgiving” right here…)

So, I have a few suggestions for Al, in his next “I spent all the “A-I-T” money, and I need more…” sequel.

Only a jackass talks about saving energy, while globetrotting around in a private jet, sipping on imported champagne.

(One of his staffers recounted a “huge hissy-fit” Gore threw when “his favorite drink” wasn’t available. They actually landed the plane to get Gore his beverage of choice.)

And, implying that you’re richer than G_d by talking about your family’s big-assed cattle ranch is bone-headed.

Wow, Gore, you’re just one of us! Yeah, we all feel bad for you. Boo-hoo, you moron! Wait, I bet that Al Gore learned to belch his own special brand of methane from those cows… Hmmmm…

al-gore

And I’ve got news for you, Georgie boy… A true “Energy Messiah” would NEVER deplane from his private jet, and then plant his butt in a fuel-guzzling SUV, or a huge battle-taxi of a limousine.

Not even if the world was on fire, and the flames were headed right for him. What, they don’t have Prius’s where you do your little dance number?

al-gore-plane

I think his arrival at his events in a “compact hybrid” would make pretty good press, don’t you?

And, last but not least, take some acting lessons. Hell, you’re surrounded by talent. DeCaprio seems to be connected to you at the hip, these days. Get Leonardo to give you a few pointers, so that you aren’t so damned boring. I hate to be the one to tell you this, but you’re about as interesting as watching paint dry.

Don’t get me wrong…

There is some merit to the “Global Warming” controversy. It made us all take a long hard look at what we were doing, and now, we’re finally motivated to make peace with Mother Earth, so she’ll play nice with our children and grandchildren.

But, nothing we can do in America, is going to even offset all the coal-fired power stations the Chinese are bringing on line, this decade. So, stop telling us lies about “Global Recovery,” okay?

More importantly, I have a real problem with Al Gore lining his pockets while he “single-handedly” saves the planet. To listen to him, he’s a modern-day Mahatma Gandhi! He’s a lying hypocrite.

This jerk spouts his “Green rhetoric” and asks us to sacrifice trillions of dollars, while he munches on cheeseburger after cheeseburger, high in the sky, ala his private luxury jet. Gore, the only thing that sucks more gas than you, is the jet engines on your Gulfstream.

When Al Gore sells his mansion, gives up that private jet, sends his SUVs (Escalades that he reportedly got for free from Cadillac for being such a “Green Guy” according to one of his own staffers) into retirement, and ponies up some of his own money (he can start with that purse he got from the Nobel Prize committee he bamboozled) to actually do something besides gas belching… um… er… talking about saving the Earth, I’ll start listening.

Until then: “When Al Gore speaks… Ronin changes the channel.”

If you’ve been paying attention to my blog at all, you already know that I am all for “recycling.” I love reclaiming stuff to use in another manner, to save it from becoming waste or landfill material. I applaud the guys and gals who toil tirelessly to make energy savings a reality, and help provide a more affordable, environmentally friendly, and comfortable life for my family.

But that’s gonna take hard work and a considerable amount of sweat on my part. It’s not gonna happen because I wasted time and money listening to “pipe dreams and blown smoke” from a guy who dresses like a tele-evangelist, and gets richer by the minute, spouting fiction painted as “truth.”

Maybe THIS get-up would work better…

gore-color-f-2

And stop sending me “Al Gore says so-and-so” email, okay? I’m tired of it. It’s not funny anymore. Wake up! Hello… You’re being lied to. Don’t believe me?

For crying out loud, pick up a newspaper…

Stay tuned!

    I get the irony, I do. But the science isn’t wrong. Or let me put it another way, 99% of the world’s scientists can’t be wrong.

    The thing about scientific studies is they are peer reviewed. That means, any time a study is published, it’s open-season on the scientist, the methodology and the data in question. It is perhaps one the most grueling processes of attrition know to man. Many hypotheses are shot down in a ball of fire. And I of course admit many once accepted theories are later proven wrong.

    When those that survive, from diverse and dissimilar fields of study, corroborate each other to point towards an alarming and unprecedented event in many millions of years, the odds of them —all— being wrong begin to resemble you putting on a blindfold, aiming a .22 cal straight up, waiting 5 minutes, taking a shot, and having a duck land at your feet.

    The press and various writers would make it seem different. But if you check out the scientific journals, or even popular journals such as “Science” and “Nature”, you’ll see the scientific consensus is pretty solid on this.
    As for Gore with his jets and suv’s. If that’s what it takes to get the message out, I don’t begrudge him the tools to do that. It’d be nicer if he led by example, but the marathon of dates and appointments he must meet, well, I choose to cut him some slack, personally.

    Yours respectfully,
    M. Uribe

    To listen to him, he’s a modern-day Mahatma Gandhi! He’s a lying hypocrite.

    Hey, what do you mean? YoOu think Gambhi was a hypocrite? Whatever your answer maybe, I am just curious to know what you think.

    There is also a counter view point to this Al Gore ‘ inconvenient truth’ is that the reserves of earth are not diminishing as fast as it is exagerrated, but there is a strategy of promotionof alternative technologies in fuel and environmental technologies like CNG, Coral fuels etc, in which U.S and Japan and all leading nations are investing to thier counterparts – relatively rich in crude and other resources.

    Now looking at present scenario in U.S, Carbon credits has lost its importance looking at present economic conditions worldwide.

    First off, thanks for your comments, gang! I REALLY appreciate your input!

    I know this is a controversial topic, but frankly, I’m just getting tired of all the hoopla that is being created by the “Al Gore Circus.”

    (I apologize in advance, for the length of this comment!)

    “Scientists have an independent obligation to respect and present the truth as they see it…”

    Al Gore actually said this in his film “An Inconvenient Truth.” First, since when is Al Gore a scientist? And second, it smacks of hypocrisy to say that, and then twist almost every single fact, to suit his “aim.”

    With that “outlook” in mind, let’s take a look at what world climate experts actually think about the science of his movie;

    Professor Bob Carter of the Marine Geophysical Laboratory at James Cook University, in Australia gives what, for many Canadians, is a surprising assessment: “Gore’s circumstantial arguments are so weak that they are pathetic. It is simply incredible that they, and his film, are commanding public attention.”

    And Professor Carter is just one of HUNDREDS of highly qualified non-governmental, non-industry, non-lobby group climate experts who contest the hypothesis that human emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) are causing significant global climate change. “Climate experts” is the operative term here. Why? Because what Gore’s “majority of scientists” think is immaterial when only a very small fraction of them actually work in the climate field.

    Appearing before the Commons Committee on Environment and Sustainable Development last year, Carleton University Paleoclimatologist Professor Tim Patterson testified, “There is no meaningful correlation between CO2 levels and Earth’s temperature over this [geologic] time frame. In fact, when CO2 levels were over ten times higher than they are now, about 450 million years ago, the planet was in the depths of the absolute coldest period in the last half billion years.”

    Patterson asked the committee, “On the basis of this evidence, how could anyone still believe that the recent relatively small increase in CO2 levels would be the major cause of the past century’s modest warming?”

    Dr. Wibjörn Karlén, emeritus professor, Dept. of Physical Geography and Quaternary Geology, Stockholm University, Sweden, admits, “Some small areas in the Antarctic Peninsula have broken up recently, just like it has done back in time. The temperature in this part of Antarctica has increased recently, probably because of a small change in the position of the low pressure systems.”

    But Karlén clarifies that the ‘mass balance’ of Antarctica is positive – more snow is accumulating than melting off. As a result, Ball explains, there is an increase in the ‘calving’ of icebergs as the ice dome of Antarctica is growing and flowing to the oceans. When Greenland and Antarctica are assessed together, “their mass balance is considered to possibly increase the sea level by 0.03 mm/year – not much of an effect,” Karlén concludes.

    The Antarctica has survived warm and cold events over millions of years. A meltdown is simply not a realistic scenario in the foreseeable future.

    Karlén explains that a paper published in 2003 by University of Alaska professor Igor Polyakov shows that, the region of the Arctic where rising temperature is supposedly endangering polar bears showed fluctuations since 1940 but no overall temperature rise. “For several published records it is a decrease for the last 50 years,” says Karlén.

    Gore’s point that 200 cities and towns in the American West set all time high temperature records is also misleading according to Dr. Roy Spencer, Principal Research Scientist at The University of Alabama in Huntsville. “It is not unusual for some locations, out of the thousands of cities and towns in the U.S., to set all-time records,” he says.

    “The actual data shows that overall, recent temperatures in the U.S. were not unusual.”

    When you examine the fine print of the scientific reports that Gore spouts, you’ll find the same deceptions. Al Gore foresees a 20-foot rise in sea level — 240 inches. The IPCC panel report foresees a maximum of 23 inches. Gore says that “our civilization has never experienced any environmental shift remotely similar to this.” Geologist Don Easterbrook says there have been shifts up to “20 times greater than the warming in the past century.”

    The most prominent characteristic of a dynamic planetary system is chaos and constant change. That is simply beyond human intervention, and perhaps even beyond human understanding. But if you can turn it into a “slideshow,” you can make a bundle of cash, eh Gore?

    I could go on for hours, literally. Hundreds of scientists who actually work in Gore’s maelstrom have published, trying to tell the world that Gore is wrong. The one thing that Al Gore has accomplished is that many incredibly bright and diligent scientists are now getting notice, as they dispute Gore’s ridiculous claims.

    Don’t get me wrong… I am really, really interested in making Mother Earth a happy camper, so that she is nice to us. Anybody reading my blog knows that. I am one crafty guy, when it comes to being resourceful, and stretching assets and resources, in order to make my family, and yours, more comfortable. I diligently recycle, reclaim, and even restore, everything I possibly can. You’d be amazed at how far my family stretches a buck, to get where we need to be. LOL! I am the first guy in line on the “reduce, reuse, recycle” bus. It’s important. And I know that I’m teaching my kids the same thing.

    But, I am not fond of guys who stir up controversy for the sake of lining their own pockets, while they scare the hell out of the planet with their “the sky is falling” crap. Nuh-uh!

    Al Gore reminds me of the News Broadcasts in South Florida that told us we were all going to die, every time a big tropical storm blew in. It’s just a “dance in front of cameras” to get ratings.

    And, that’s exactly what Gore is doing. And he’s actually doing more harm than good, in my book. When the “truth” comes out resoundingly against him, and “the Oracle” is proven to be just another “Orifice,” it’s gonna do a lot of damage.

    But, at least he’ll still be rich… huh?

    Al Gore’s tireless efforts to promote global warming alarmism, backed by millions of dollars, have undoubtedly changed public opinion. It means only that Al Gore has a bigger megaphone to use as he manipulates public opinion, than do those of us who actually go on record to oppose global warming alarmism.

    In summary; many claims have been made for the scientific accuracy of his presentation. However, when accredited and noteworthy scientists analyzed the scientific accuracy of “An Inconvenient Truth,” many of them were astonished to find that nearly every “fact” was either misleading, exaggerated or wrong.

    Yet these groups and others speaking out against Al’s “truth” are casually maligned as being untruthful because we base our case on the best science available, while Mr. Gore is applauded for his “The Sky is Falling” antics.

    That just burns my butt…

    And to M. Uribe, who said;…begin to resemble you putting on a blindfold, aiming a .22 cal straight up, waiting 5 minutes, taking a shot, and having a duck land at your feet.

    That would be my Mom. An old-school Marine who could kill a charging junkyard pitbull with a single look… I don’t agree with you, when you look at the body of the investigations by scientists actually in the climatology field, but… But it was a great analogy! And, thank you for your comment. Sincerely.

    And Poonam; Mahatma Gandhi was just a man, but he was the closest thing to a saint that we’ve seen in many, many years. His outlook on life, and his code of conduct were an example to all of us. Al Gore, in his “I’m just trying to save the Earth” guise is a pitiful attempt at trying to emulate Gandhi’s goals, goals that asked all men to work together in peace, to accomplish world change. Even an idiot like Ronin knows that Gandhi defined “greatness.” Al Gore isn’t fit to shine Gandhi’s sandals. Nice to see you again!

    Somebody recently said:

    “I have yet to see anything that suggests Gore’s bonafides in the area of climatological research that qualifies him as an “authority” in this area.

    Of course, I have yet to see anything that suggests Gore’s bonafides to do ANYTHING.

    If GW is such a major disaster in the works that we are, as Gore puts it, past the point of recovery, why didn’t he do anything about it when he was VP? This question never seems to get answered and never seems to go away.”

    I agree, completely.

    Gore’s just another “sideshow barker,” trying to line his pockets while the money is floating in front of his eyes, as he deceives anybody who wiill pony up his fee, to listen to him lie…

    Enough said.
