Prolonged Drought Before Record Snowfall – Gaia Herself Debunks Gore’s Ridiculous Claims

February 12, 11

During the Snowpocalype that hit most of the Northern Hemisphere with massive snowfall and shattering cold, Al Gore had this to say by way of explanation:

In fact, scientists have been warning for at least two decades that global warming could make snowstorms more severe. Snow has two simple ingredients: cold and moisture. Warmer air collects moisture like a sponge until it hits a patch of cold air. When temperatures dip below freezing, a lot of moisture creates a lot of snow

Gore is saying that warmer weather causes more evaporation of water, and thus more moisture in the air, which leads to greater precipitation (in the form of record-breaking snow).

But anyone can Google “snowfall despite drought” and find the following:

——————————

North China – Snowfall after drought since October

Alabama – Ice and snow after persistent drought

North Carolina – Record snowfall in December after below-normal rainfall since last July

Missouri – Record making snowfall following 2-year drought

California – Massive snowfall after 3 years drought

Oklahoma – Snow and freezing rain after dry months

Arizona – Plenty of snow after 14 year drought!

Kansas – Trio of snowstorms after chronic drought

Georgia – Crippling snow after months of drought

——————————

There hasn’t been precipitation for months or years despite ‘highest temperatures in recorded history’, so where did all the water go? Did it hang out in the upper atmosphere all the way until 2010/11’s Snowmageddon?

Or maybe there hasn’t been excess evaporation at all… After all, there has not been any real warming for the past decade. That would explain why there has been a drought recently, yes?

But that would be akin to calling Al Gore a liar, a liar, and a liar. And we can’t have that, now can we?

Al Gore’s New Book – Yet More Scaremongering (and Photoshopped) Fakery

November 19, 09

Al Gore is a pathological liar. He has now apparently even resorted to Photoshopping out the Arctic, Photoshopping oceans over coasts, and Photoshopping in several hurricanes onto a photo of the Earth.

From Watts Up With That and Moonbattery via Prison Planet:

A midget Southern Hemisphere cyclone is off the coast of Florida, another hurricane is sitting on the equator off the coast of Peru — and the Arctic Ice is gone (perhaps it is summer) and the Florida Peninsula is half gone

There are other differences I am sure you can find — but the hurricanes are just nonsense…

Maybe it’s Gore’s vision of what the future world will look like if global warming continues unabated. But even that theory fails.

The Arctic ice is at the same levels as 1979, meaning there is no net melting.

Similarly, Antarctic ice is at the highest levels ever recorded.

Hurricanes are at a 30 year low.

The oceans have actually been getting cooler since 2003.

And as the BBC admits, there has been no warming in 11 years.

All this while concentrations of CO2 – the gas that supposedly causes world-ending global warming – continue to increase.

Many more facts, graphs and photos with citations at my collection, Global Warming is Unfactual, and excellent overview for those uninitiated into serious global warming debate.

What can we expect, really, from a guy who barely passed his science papers in university and thinks the Earth’s interior is millions of degrees hot?

No wonder he was greeted with a protest in Portland.

Al Gore really is a pathological liar (much like that other guy he supported for President).

He lies tons in his film. (Which most people actually ignored.)

He lies 180 degrees about the relationship between carbon dioxide and temperature.

He lies about drowning polar bears.

He lies about reducing his massive energy use and carbon footprint.

He lies about his true motives for scaring us about global warming.

So to wit: This is the man who is at the forefront of the global warming fearmongering movement. How do you think this reflects on other supporters/salesmen of the global warming farce, like lying NASA head James Hansen, blindo NASA scientists and researchers who intentionally skew data?

Al Gore Fails on Sciences Other Than Global Warming Too

November 19, 09

Al Gore got a D grade in Natural Sciences at Harvard:

For all of Gore’s later fascination with science and technology, he often struggled academically in those subjects. The political champion of the natural world received that sophomore D in Natural Sciences 6 (Man’s Place in Nature) and then got a C-plus in Natural Sciences 118 his senior year.

When John C. Davis, a retired teacher and assistant headmaster at St. Albans, was recently shown his illustrious former pupil’s college board achievement test scores, he inspected them closely with a magnifier and shook his head, chuckling quietly at the science results.

“Four eighty-eight! Terrible” Davis declared upon inspecting the future vice president’s 488 score (out of a possible 800) in physics.

“Hmmmm. Chemistry. Five-nineteen. He didn’t do too well in chemistry.”

But that was then. This is now: He thinks that the Earth’s interior temperature is several million degrees:

Al Gore: It definitely is, and it’s a relatively new one. People think about geothermal energy — when they think about it at all — in terms of the hot water bubbling up in some places, but two kilometers or so down in most places there are these incredibly hot rocks, ’cause the interior of the earth is extremely hot, several million degrees, and the crust of the earth is hot …

FYI, the Earth’s core is about 5400 degrees Celsius or 9800 degrees Fahrenheit, neither of which approaches even 1% of Gore’s Bizarro World figure. But it’s okay, he’s only off by about 990,000 degrees or more. Say’s a lot about his grasp of global temperature fluctuations, hmm?

Our Sun, however, is 13.6 million Celsius or 24.5 million degrees Fahrenheit at its hottest. With a grasp of temperature measurements like this, maybe that’s why Gore keeps thinking the planet is catching fire even though even the BBC admits there has been no warming in 11 years!

But remember, global warming that will doom humanity is real and factual. Real I tell you, factual!!!

We must all stop global warming now!!!! (Or backdated to 11 years before we start trying to stop it now.)

Malaysiakini Letters – Global Warming: Don’t Naively Believe Everything

April 21, 09

Hah! I got it in at last. Eat this, global warming hysterians!

I re-added the links to news and science sites in the citations (in non-bolded links below), as Malaysiakini removed them. They left in some of the links as they saw fit, however (in bolded links below).

Or just head on over to Global Warming is Unfactual for more facts. Malaysiakini had removed some of them.

From Malaysiakini letters 20 April 2009:

Global warming is unfactual don't naively believe

Global warming is unfactual don't naively believe

Global warming is unfactual don't naively believe

Global warming: Don’t naively believe everything

Scott Thong | Apr 20, 09 4:52pm

I refer to the letter Global warming – getting the facts right.

Allow me to respond by citing five simple facts about global warming that are seldom heard.

1. According to the National Center for Policy Analysis [pages 5-8], only 1~2% of the atmosphere is made up of greenhouse gases. Of that amount of greenhouse gases, only 3.62 percent of it is carbon dioxide.

And most significantly for proponents of anthropogenic global warming, only 3.4% of that carbon dioxide is emitted by human activity. That is to say, even if all human activities were immediately shut down tomorrow, 96.6% of the carbon dioxide would not be affected.

[Which also means that only 0.28% of the greenhouse effect is human-caused.]

2. The wavelength of radiation that carbon dioxide absorbs is not only very narrow, it is also already mostly absorbed by other gases – such as the water vapour the writer mentions.

And this is also affected by the law of diminishing returns – once carbon dioxide and other gases absorb all this radiation, then adding more carbon dioxide does not have any effect – the radiation is already being absorbed in full. (Source: Page 13 of this PDF)

3. Historical data shows that temperature always rises first, followed 800 years later by carbon dioxide levels. This is the reverse of what global warming theory claims.

4. How is temperature measured, anyway? Nasa relies mostly on ground-based measuring instruments. However, many of them are placed in really stupid locations where they are exposed to a lot of temporary heat.

You should really take a look at the hilarious photos of temperature sensors placed in hot car parking lots, next to air-conditioner exhaust vents, inches from exposed light bulbs, and near flaming barbeque grills.

Don’t you think this biases the temperature measurements towards the hotter end of the scale?

5. Global warming? What global warming? Where? Where? Does anybody even read the news anymore, or are they content to parrot decades-old talking points about melting ice caps and rising oceans? Extra credit to you if you know that:

The oceans have been cooling since 2003. (Source: Nasa)

Sea ice is growing at the fastest rate ever recorded. (Source: Arctic Research Center)

Arctic ice is back to 1979 levels, meaning no net melting has occurred in 30 years. (Source: Daily Tech)

The melting scare in recent years might have been caused by scientists having undermeasured the amount of ice by 500,000 square kilometers due to a sensor glitch, as they now bashfully admit. (Source: Bloomberg)

Antarctic ice is at the highest levels ever recorded. (Source: Heartland Institute)

[And it is proven that the ice is expanding! (Source: The Australian)]

The year 2008 saw colder temperatures across the United States. (Source: National Climatic Data Center)

It snowed in Saudi Arabia during their coldest winter in 30 years. (Yes, it snowed in the Desert Kingdom!) (Source: Arabian Business.com)

It snowed in Iraq for the first time in 100 years. (Source: Reuters)

In 2009, it snowed in the United Arab Emirates for the second time in history. When was the first time? In 2004. (Source: Associated Free Press and Terra Daily)

China had its coldest winter in 100 years. (Source: Reuters)

Pakistan had its coldest temperatures in 70 years. (Source: The Indian Express)

Australia had its coldest summer in 50 years. (Source: Bloomberg)

Mumbai, India had its coldest winter in 40 years. (Source: India News)

Takijistan, formerly part of the Soviet Union, had its coldest winter in more than 25 years. (Source: npr)

There was record cold in Vietnam. (Source: Earth Times)

A rare snowfall occurred in Jerusalem. (Source: BBC)

All this chill is probably why the fearmongers’ language has gradually been shifted to ‘climate change’ instead of ‘global warming’. So do tell me, how does the alleged carbon dioxide heating up the planet cause all this cooling climate change?

Finally, the writer insinuates that there are ‘forces bent on denying the scientific evidence related to climate change’, that is, ‘businesses whose profits depends on humankind continuing unabated on this downward path, and the politicians funded by these businesses.’

Tell that to Al Gore, head cheerleader of global warming doom-saying – whose film ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ was officially ruled by the British High Court to be unscientific and one-sidedly political.

He whose house uses 22 times the electricity as the average American family and who has earned more than US$35 million in profits from his company Generation Investment Management LLP that sells carbon offsets.

Maybe that is why more and more people have felt that global warming is exaggerated since around the time ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ was released and why global warming is the currently the lowest concern on people’s minds.

[Addition: Two thirds of people no longer believe that global warming is human caused!]

Don’t naively believe everything a pundit claims. Heck, don’t even believe what I am saying – go and check it all out for yourselves. All the above facts are backed up by citations from legitimate news sources that can be viewed here.

Quick Facts That Debunk Hysterical Global Warming Claims

March 26, 09

Join the Global Warming is Unfactual group on Facebook!

Take the quick poll question!

————————————–

WHAT IS ANTHROPOGENIC GLOBAL WARMING?

Anthropogenic global warming theory is the idea that human activities that release carbon dioxide are causing the Earth’s temperature to rise drastically.

Anthropogenic global warming theory has the following assumptions:

1) Carbon dioxide is the main cause of rising global temperatures
2) The main source of this carbon dioxide is from human activities
3) The temperature rise will be quick and large
4) The temperature rise will cause massive devastation and disaster
5) We must act now to stop the release of carbon dioxide

But that is only one side of the story. Have you ever heard, seen or read the other side?

The following collection of facts all come with citations and links. They are but the tip of the not-melting iceberg of data that refutes global warming junk-science.

Read on and ask yourself:

What do the following FACTS mean for purported human-caused global warming?

——————————————

WORLDWIDE WEATHER

– Meanwhile, on planet Earth, the oceans have been cooling since 2003. (Source: NASA)

– Sea ice is growing at the fastest rate ever recorded. (Source: Arctic Research Center)

– Arctic ice is back to 1979 levels, meaning no net melting has occurred in 30 years. The graph below is resized smaller, but see the jagged lines? That’s the levels of ice – fluctuating a bit, but always around the same amount over 30 years. (Source and full size graph: Daily Tech)

– Perhaps the recent fears that the Arctic was melting is due to the fact that scientists undermeasured the amount of ice by 500,000 square kilometers (the size of California!) because of a satellite sensor glitch. So much for careful and accurate science! What else have they miscalculated thus far? (Hint: See the SCIENCE AND SCIENTISTS section later on) (Source: Bloomberg)

– Antarctic ice is at highest levels ever recorded and still expanding. The purple shaded area shows the record ice cap growth this year in Antarctica. (Source: The Australian, Heartland Institute)

– Here’s some visuals of just how much more ice and snow there is in Antarctica over 20 years. The structures below were on ground level in the mid-1960s; by the time the photos were taken in the late 1980s, they are already almost completely buried by the additional snow! And Antarctic ice is at record high levels today, 30 years onwards. (See the very purple picture on this page.) (Source: The Next Ice Age – Now!)

The electrical transmission towers above are 115 feet tall. Of that, 85 feet of height has been buried.

The above construction crane was used to build those tall towers!

– The year 2008 saw colder temperatures across the United States. (Source: National Climatic Data Center)

CARBON DIOXIDE

It is claimed that the more carbon dioxide is put into the atmosphere, the hotter the planet gets. But is this what the data shows?

– Historical data shows that temperature always rises first, followed 800 years LATER by carbon dioxide levels. This is the REVERSE of what global warming theory claims. (Source: Six respected climate and environment scientists)

– Carbon dioxide, for all the hype and panic, forms only 0.0383% of the entire atmosphere. That is to say, in every 2611 buckets of air you collect, you will only collect 1 bucket of carbon dioxide. (Source: Wikipedia on carbon dioxide concentration)

– Meanwhile, how much carbon dioxide is released in a year? The amount of CO2 being released by humans is only 3.4% of all CO2 emissions!

According to the National Center for Policy Analysis, only 1~2% of the atmosphere is made up of greenhouse gases. Of that amount of greenhouse gases, only 3.62 percent of it is carbon dioxide. Of that amount of carbon dioxide, only 3.4% is emitted by human activity.

So humans contribute only 0.28% of the greenhouse effect. What does this tiny little number actually mean? To put it another way, in every 40,624 buckets of atmosphere, human activities will only add 1 single bucket of carbon dioxide every year.

And we are supposed to ‘save the planet from global warming’ by halting this 3.4% of 3.62% of 2% of the atmosphere of human carbon dioxide emissions? Even if all human activities were immediately stopped tomorrow, 96.6% of the carbon dioxide would be totally unaffected! (Source: National Center for Policy Analysis, pages 5-8)

– How does this tiny amount of carbon dioxide claimed to cause global warming? Supporters of global warming scaremongering say that carbon dioxide absorbs a particular wavelength of radiation from the surface of the Earth, which would otherwise escape off into space. Thus, carbon dioxide traps this radiation and heats up the planet.

However, the wavelength of radiation carbon dioxide has been shown to absorb is actually so narrow, it is already mostly absorbed by other gases such as water vapor! (Source: Page 13 of this PDF or first graph here)

What is more, once carbon dioxide and other gases absorb this radiation, then adding more carbon dioxide does not have any effect – the radiation is already being absorbed in full. (To visualize this, imagine a flashlight beam being blocked by pieces of black paper. Once there is are enough pieces of black paper to block the beam totally, adding more pieces does nothing. All the light is already being absorbed.)

SCIENCE AND SCIENTISTS

The IPCC (International Panel on Climate Change) claims that a ‘consensus’ of scientists agree that global warming is a real and urgent danger. They are basically saying that ‘all’ serious scientists believe in global warming.

But what does the science actually show?

100 + 400 + 650 + 31000 prominent scientists DENY global warming claims. (Sources: Science and Public Policy Institute, Senate Minority Report, Telegraph Newspaper UK)

– The American Physical Society offers mathematical proof that the IPCC’s calculations on global warming are WRONG. (Source: Christopher Monckton, former advisor to Margaret Thatcher)

– How is temperature measured, anyway? NASA uses ground-based measuring instruments. However, many of them are placed in REALLY STUPID LOCATIONS where they are exposed to a lot of temporary heat. Examples: Hot car parking lot, air-conditioner hot air vent, barbeque grill! Don’t you think this affects the temperature measurements? (Source and more photos: here, here and here)

AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH AND PUBLIC OPINION

Al Gore’s film An Inconvenient Truth has been a major influence in getting people to believe that global warming is destroying our world.

– But did you know that this film has been found to have at least 35 major scientific errors? (Source: Science and Public Policy Institute)

– This caused the British High Court to officially rule that the film was unscientific, and may only be shown to schoolchildren if the film’s one-sided political slant is clearly stated to them. (Source: Investors Business Daily)

– An Inconvenient Truth portrays the Antarctic as warming up, with the Larsen Ice Shelf melting away. However, it does not deem to mention that this part is only 2% of the Antarctic, while the rest is COOLING. (Source: Wall Street Journal)

– What about the ‘poor, drowning polar bears that are going extinct’ that Al Gore and others love to bring up in order to pull at our heart-strings? The truth is, there are 5 times more polar bears today than 70 years ago (25,000 today versus 5,000 in 1940). And the polar bears featured in the photo below? Not in any fear, suffering or danger of drowning! Basically, Al Gore either lied or was ignorant. (Source and citations: This article, and polar bear numbers from Polar Bears International)

– In fact, more and more people began thinking that global warming is OVER-EXAGGERATED since around the time An Inconvenient Truth was released! (Source: Gallup poll)

– With an entire two thirds of those polled not believing it is caused by humans! (Source: Rasmussen Reports)

– While global warming is currently the UTTER LOWEST AND LEAST IMPORTANT concern on people’s minds! (Source: Pew Research Center)

——————————————

AL GORE

Maybe global warming panic is losing momentum because Al Gore – the foremost outspoken champion of stopping global warming – has proven to be a huge hypocrite when it comes to not releasing carbon dioxide.

– His home uses 20 times the energy as a standard American home, even while he tells us to conserve energy for the sake of the planet. (Source: Tenessee Center for Policy Research)

– Sorry! That information is outdated. His home now uses 22 times the energy as a standard American home! (Source: Tenessee Center for Policy Research)

But don’t worry! Al Gore tells us to slow the advance of global warming by reducing our carbon output, but if we cannot do so personally, we can still buy carbon offsets – pay money to plant trees, support solar power, etc. So he too buys carbon offsets to make up for his polluting lifestyle.

– Guess who owns a carbon offsets company? Al Gore himself. He is the founding partner and chairman of Generation Investment Management LLP. (Wikipedia entry here)

– And where does he buy his carbon offsets from? From his own company. (Source: WorldNet Daily)

– Thanks to this marvellous scam, Al Gore has earned $35 million in profits at our expense. (Source: Bloomberg)

IN CLOSING

And remember: 34 years ago, the world was panicking about GLOBAL COOLING! (Source: Newsweek from 1975)

DO YOU STILL BELIEVE THAT GLOBAL WARMING IS HAPPENING AND THAT HUMAN-RELEASED CARBON DIOXIDE CAUSES IT?

Al Gore is Back With His Patented Brand of Hypocritical Hot Air

November 7, 08

Okay, these days, it’s hard for me to decide who I dislike more.

New kid crash-the-market Barack Obama who wants to take your hard-earned money and give it to other people whom he himself won’t give any money to

Or bad old do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do Al Gore who just wants to take your money and give it to himself.

Here he is preaching down his Pharisee nose at us commoners again:

Forty years ago, Robert F. Kennedy reminded Americans that the Dow Jones Industrial Average and Gross National Product measure neither our national spirit nor our national achievement. Both metrics fail to consider the integrity of our environment, the health of our families and the quality of our education. As he put it, “the Gross National Product measures neither our wit nor our courage, neither our wisdom nor our learning, neither our compassion nor our devotion to country. It measures everything, in short, except that which makes life worthwhile.”

Uh huh. Income is not worthwhile. Yeah.

Says the guy who’s made obscene amounts of Gross Personal Product from the global warming hysteria he spouts:

Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore left the White House seven years ago with less than $2 million in assets, including a Virginia home and the family farm in Tennessee. Now he’s making enough to put $35 million in hedge funds and other private partnerships.

Gore invested the money with Capricorn Investment Group LLC, a Palo Alto, California, firm that selects the private funds for clients and invests in makers of environmentally friendly products, according to a Feb. 1 securities filing. Capricorn was founded by billionaire Jeffrey Skoll, former president of EBay Inc. and an executive producer of Gore’s Oscar-winning documentary film on global warming.

Which he could earn, of course, through scare-mongering and propagandizing the global warming hoax, which he tells us can be alleviated by purchasing lots and lots of carbon credits. And he just happens to own a carbon credit company, what a coincidence!

And once again, it’s almost insultingly blatant what his real motives are. From the rest of the article:

For example, by challenging America to generate 100% carbon-free electricity within 10 years — with the building of a 21st century Unified National Smart Grid, and the electrification of our automobile fleet — we can encourage investment in our economy, secure domestic energy supplies, and create millions of jobs across the country.

We also need to internalize externalities — starting with a price on carbon. The longer we delay the internalization of this obviously material cost, the greater risk the economy faces from investing in high carbon content, “sub-prime” assets.

Mr. Gore, chairman of Generation Investment Management, is a former vice president of the United States.

If you’re wondering what this Generation Investment Management is, from the official website:

Generation Investment Management

Sustainability and Investing
“Integrating issues such as climate change into investment analysis is simply common sense.” —Al Gore, Chairman

Sustainability research integrated into a rigorous traditional investment process will deliver superior long term results.

Sustainable development will be a primary driver of industrial and economic change over the next 25 years.

Shareholders will be best served by companies who maximize their financial return by strategically managing their performance in this new economic, social, environmental and ethical context.

Yup, clear as day, by its own admission, Generation Investment Management makes money from climate change fearmongering which leads to investment in alternative energy.

Alternative energy is currently still too inefficient and unprofitable to survive in a free market without massive government subsidies and totalitarian laws that punish competing energy production methods like coal. And – surprise! – here is Al Gore telling us that free market capitalism is bad and laws must be passed to kill off all competitors to alternative energy.

The only Green in Al Gore is the reflection in his shifty eyes of the millions of U.S. greenbacks filling his massive mansion.

Don’t worry, Al… Barack is well on the way to making your highly-self-profiting dream of skyrocketing energy prices and bankrupted traditional energy industry a reality.

—————–

For readers who are new to the scene, here are brief lessons on how Al Gore lives in a mansion that uses 20 times the energy, then fixed it to use even more energy, then leaves his car running with A/C on, and flying in artistes in private jets.

Yet, he tells us we must use less energy and release less carbon dioxide. Or he’ll send people to use violence on you. You deserve it for making Mother Gaia cry.

Why is it that it’s always the RICHEST liberals telling us poor working class proles to give away more of our money to the masses?

DO AS WE SAY, NOT AS WE DO!!!

Eco-Messiah of Hypocrisy Al Gore Now Guzzles Even More Energy Than Ever Before

June 18, 08

It used to be that Al Gore, the champion of stopping global warming, endlessly railed at us commoners for using energy and emitting carbon – while himself using 20 times the energy as ordinary people.

But no more!

Aware of the hypocrisy of telling us to stop giving Gaia a fever even as he forced smallpox down her throat, Gore no longer uses 20 times the energy of an average home.

He now uses 22 times more energy.

Via Moonbattery, taken whole from Tennessee Center For Policy Research:

Energy Guzzled by Al Gore’s Home in Past Year Could Power 232 U.S. Homes for a Month

Gore’s personal electricity consumption up 10%, despite “energy-efficient” home renovations

NASHVILLE – In the year since Al Gore took steps to make his home more energy-efficient, the former Vice President’s home energy use surged more than 10%, according to the Tennessee Center for Policy Research.

“A man’s commitment to his beliefs is best measured by what he does behind the closed doors of his own home,” said Drew Johnson, President of the Tennessee Center for Policy Research. “Al Gore is a hypocrite and a fraud when it comes to his commitment to the environment, judging by his home energy consumption.”

In the past year, Gore’s home burned through 213,210 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity, enough to power 232 average American households for a month.

In February 2007, An Inconvenient Truth, a film based on a climate change speech developed by Gore, won an Academy Award for best documentary feature. The next day, the Tennessee Center for Policy Research uncovered that Gore’s Nashville home guzzled 20 times more electricity than the average American household.

After the Tennessee Center for Policy Research exposed Gore’s massive home energy use, the former Vice President scurried to make his home more energy-efficient. Despite adding solar panels, installing a geothermal system, replacing existing light bulbs with more efficient models, and overhauling the home’s windows and ductwork, Gore now consumes more electricity than before the “green” overhaul.

Since taking steps to make his home more environmentally-friendly last June, Gore devours an average of 17,768 kWh per month –1,638 kWh more energy per month than before the renovations – at a cost of $16,533. By comparison, the average American household consumes 11,040 kWh in an entire year, according to the Energy Information Administration.

In the wake of becoming the most well-known global warming alarmist, Gore won an Oscar, a Grammy and the Nobel Peace Prize. In addition, Gore saw his personal wealth increase by an estimated $100 million thanks largely to speaking fees and investments related to global warming hysteria.

“Actions speak louder than words, and Gore’s actions prove that he views climate change not as a serious problem, but as a money-making opportunity,” Johnson said. “Gore is exploiting the public’s concern about the environment to line his pockets and enhance his profile.”

The Tennessee Center for Policy Research, a Nashville-based free market think tank and watchdog organization, obtained information about Gore’s home energy use through a public records request to the Nashville Electric Service.

————————

Amazing. How does he, one man (albeit very big, fat and greedy) manage to use 1.6 times more energy per month than an ordinary family uses in a year?!

The Omega Reason Not to Support Obama – Gore Gives Endorsement

If support and endoresement from Communist mass murderer fans, convicted local terrorists, radical anti-white militants, extremist terrorist groups, and men who think America should go to hell wasn’t telling enough…

You know that something is seriously super-liberally retarded about Obama’s policies when the Megasaurus of Greed & Carbon Hypocrisy himself, Al Gore, officially endorses Obama.

From Townhall.com:

Gore endorses Obama and attacks Bush in Detroit

Al Gore is making his debut on the 2008 presidential campaign trail in support of Barack Obama. Gore appeared with the Democratic presidential candidate Monday night at a raucous rally at Detroit’s Joe Lewis Arena. His speech was part endorsement, part blistering attack on President Bush.

Gore said Obama can lead the country past “eight years of incompetence, neglect and failure.” He said Bush, who defeated him in the 2000 election, dishonored and disrespected the Constitution and made the worst foreign policy mistakes in the nation’s history.

Gore won the popular vote in the 2000 race, but lost the presidency after the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Bush in the disputed Florida election. Gore said, “Take it from me, elections matter.”

———————————-

Excerpts from Fox Embeds:

Gore Steps into the ‘08 Fray

Al Gore and Barack Obama walked onto the stage tonight in Detroit, Michigan, to big cheers from some 20,000 who had gathered to see the presumptive Democratic nominee.

The former veep and presidential candidate Gore began by introducing himself as “a citizen of the United States,” and a “citizen of the world.” He continued, “The outcome of this election will affect the future of our planet. For America to lead the world through the dangers we’re facing to seize the opportunities before us, we’ve got to have new leadership; not only a new president, but new policies; not only a new head of state, but a new vision for America’s future.”

The Democrat who won the popular vote and lost the election to George W. Bush then joked, “Take it from me, elections matter.” Ticking off ills that face the country today, such as the debacle in New Orleans, a bad economy, the war in Iraq, and the environment, Gore punctuated the problems with, “You know that elections matter.”

He praised Obama for speaking out against the war in 2002 and spoke about the urgency with which we need to deal with global climate change – his signature issue.

He concluded by observing that the nation has been waiting for a candidate like Barack Obama, who “in response to those doubting our ability to solve the climate crisis and create a bright future, inspired millions to say, ‘Yes, we can.’ We have such a nominee. We have such a leader.”

———————————-

Carbon & Emissions Fatty Gore is still sore over losing to Bush in the 2000 Elections… Something which was perfectly within the Constitution and the laws of America.

And btw, Bush has an excellent 7 year track record in protecting America and his foreign policy has made America even more friends in the world.

New Orleans? Debunked myths and lies meant to smear Bush’s administration. And no, Hurricane Katrina was NOT caused by Gore’s demons of global warming. In fact, global warming reduces tornadoes and hurricanes!

Bad economy? It’s only ever bad when the Lie-beral media dislikes the President for not being Moonbatty enough. To wit, it’s doing better than when Clinton was too busy pulling his pants down to manage the nation. Proof from Red Planet Cartoons links:

HopingForRecession

The environment? You should talk, High King of Carbon Polluters whose global warming paranoia-spawned ‘Green policies’ are causing more environmental damage and leading REAL environmentalists to condemn the Gorean lunacy.

And as for ‘speaking out about the Iraq War’… Warmonger Gore should know, as long before he took to scolding Bush Jr. over invading Iraq, Gore himself supported attacking Iraq when it suited him politically (VIDEO PROOF), even going so far as to chide Bush Sr. for not annihilating Saddam Hussein! Just like all his fellow flip-flop Democrats.

In contrast to Bush’s country honesty and good naturedness, Al Gore has used outright lies, intentional misrepresentation and dishonest obfuscation to accomplish convincing the world to bankrupt itself through boondoggles that perform nothing to fight a nonexistant phantom hoax

In the meantime, he is making tens of millions for himself through his underhanded get-rich scam, all while using 20x the energy and massively spewing out the carbon he curses us commoners for doing.

Wait, did I say 20 times? News flash, it’s now 22 times!!!

So, yes… And endorsement from the worlds biggest, fattest, most selfish and dishonest, self-serving person just might make me even less supportive of Obama and his moronic policies.

If Bill Clinton was the anchor tied to Hillary’s feet, then Al Gore will be the private plane hung around Obama’s neck… All the way down to the carbon-trapping depths of the deepest, darkest ocean.
