MCA Forum on Effects of Global Warming – Making You Stupider Than Before

January 14, 08


Few people understand the contemporary global warming phenomenon, and fewer still realise the seriousness of its effect on the Earth.

But if you get suckered into listening to this MCA talk, you’re going to be worse off than an ignoramus as they fill your head with utter falsehoods, outright inaccuracies and blatant lies.

On a tip from Soon.

Forum on effects of global warming

FEW people understand the contemporary global warming phenomenon, and fewer still realise the seriousness of its effect on the Earth. 

Hence, the MCA life-long learning reading club is holding a forum on the issue at the MCA 9-point party platform exhibition at the Putra World Trade Centre in Kuala Lumpur during the Jan 19-20 weekend.  

The forum is conceptualised around the book “An Inconvenient Truth” by former US vice-president Al Gore, who is now a world ambassador for environmental matters.  

Tzu-Chi Foundation volunteers who have been actively involved in recycling campaigns have been invited to share their experience at the forum. 

For self-enhancement: MCA life-long learning secretariat director Quek Ngee Meng (right) and Tan looking at books recommended by the MCA’s lifelong learning reading club.

Tan Chee Wei, an administrative executive of the KL branch of Taiwan Buddhist Tzu-Chi Foundation Malaysia, will be speaking at the Mandarin session from 4.30pm to 6pm on Jan 20. 

He will also present a video clip on the Tzu-Chi recycling work. 

Two other volunteers – senior bank manager Wong Mun Heng and construction company executive director Robert Chong – will speak at the English session from 5.30pm to 7pm on Jan 19. 

“Reading can lead one to a lot of things, including awareness and actions to be taken but real action is another matter,” said Chong, a volunteer in the Tzu-Chi recycling work. 

“We encourage people to take simple action – such as using buckets of water to wash cars instead of using big water pipes. These are simple effects and efforts to use our resources and all of us share the responsibility to saving the mother earth,” he said.  

Wong, a volunteer with Tzu-Chi since 1999, said that people needed to simplify their lifestyle to reduce pollution to lead a better life. 

“Everyone knows the world has changed but have not realised that it is changing at a faster pace lately. Time is not on our side,” he said. 

The two-session forum is one of the events in the MCA 9-point party platform exhibition held in conjunction with the National Youth Entrepreneur Convention.  

The exhibition covers life-long learning, revitalising education, Chinese language education, economic competitiveness, development and promotion of culture, new villages development, a just and caring society and the concept of rakyat Malaysia.

Effects of global warming? I’ll tell you the effects of global warming. Snow, ice, blizzards, frost and freezing to death, that’s what global warming does.

What? Didn’t they get the memo? It was in the news, locally and worldwide, if they even bother to read it except to see their own smiling faces in there.

The world is changing at a faster pace? Since when  does everything’s the same as before count as an acceleration towards doomsday? ‘The fact is that the global temperature of 2007 is statistically the same as 2006 and every year since 2001’. 

As for recycling, yes it’s a good thing to do and all. But if the aim is solely to stop (non-existant) global warming, recycling will make things worse as it recycling uses up more carbon-emitting energy than fresh manufacture! (Except for steel and aluminium.)

The extreme end result of focusing on removing all carbon from the atmosphere? Burying the etntire world’s forests for the sake of Mother Gaia.

If the MCA is recommending trash like An Inconvenient Truth – which is wholly debunked, 35 times over – its reading club members better double check how good their book recommendatiosn really are.

Or as Soon says: If these MCA folks are serious truth seekers, they best search twice and know what they havee been fed.

Utter total uneducated and gullible idiocy. But then, what do we expect from politicians?

Cuh. I’d write to The Star to set them straight, but then the lower-ranking, Gore-washed editors in charge of filtering the letters would likely throw it out, or worse – edit it.

Can someone attend the MCA talk in KL and spread the real truth?

Not to disrupt the activities or anything, just raise some pertinent questions about the statistical no-rise-in-temperature, the historic 400-year lag where temperatures rise then CO2 levels rise, the spate of cold and snow wordlwide, Al Gore’s massive hypocritical use of resources while telling us our miniscule use is dooming the planet…

With info-filled print outs for all attendees.

Talk not disrupted, per se, but hijacked.

An Inconvenient Truth 2: Suggested Film Titles

January 5, 08

Learned of via Tom Nelson.

From Newsbusters:

Sequel to Al Gore’s ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ Announced: ‘The Path to Survival’

You knew it was coming. It was only a matter of time. Al Gore is working on a sequel to his 2006 eco-ganda film “An Inconvenient Truth,” which will be called “The Path to Survival” and released on April 22, 2008, otherwise known as Earth Day.

Global warming “deniers” may begin thinking of it as “An Inconvenient Truth 2: Non-Electric Boogaloo.”

But based on a September 5 AP article, it’s not what you expect. It isn’t even a film. It won’t even be a hardback. Publisher Rodale Books said it will be released as a paperback original that is “(p)art-scientific manual, part expose, part visionary call for a new planet-wide political movement” and will offer “a visionary blueprint for the changes we should make as a world community.”

Does that mean Gore will teach “a new generation” to stay green his way, by jetting around the world on private planes, owning big houses, throwing carbon-spewing concerts and eating red meat, which the UN said is a bigger contributor to anthropogenic global warming than SUVs?

Look for a giant carbon-emitting promotional tour to accompany the release.


So, what might be some suitable titles for a sequel to An Inconvenient Tru… Oh, who are we kidding? The film is actually A Convenient Pack of 35 Lies and Errors.

Anyway, suggested sequel titles (even though it won’t be released as a film):

Please Cite Me the Evidence for Evolution and Global Warming

December 17, 07

So anyone, please tell me:

What evidence is there that firmly demonstrates the occurrence of evolution in the past or present?


What evidence is there that firmly links rising levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere to the increase in global temperature?

Can anyone actually cite some worthwhile evidence, apart from the easy-to-debunk, endlessly rehashed fallacies and disproven non-facts?

What I’m looking for is definitive, conclusive evidence that completely excludes all other explanations… Not piles of circumstantial evidence that can be equally well explained by other theories.

In short: I want proof that DIRECTLY AND UNCONTESTABLY PROVES that evolution or global warming is a fact, not CONJECTURES BASED ON (HIGHLY) CORROBORATIVE DATA that it is a fact.

Also, clarification: I’m looking for proof of macro-evolution, i.e. evolution from one species or even Class into a whole other type of life form. Micro-evolution, i.e. adaptation within a recognizable kind of life form, is a given.

The bet: That you cannot quote or link me any evidence that proves beyond reasonable doubt that evolution has happened, or that global warming is caused by human produced carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere.

The stake: If you present an argument that I actually find compelling, I will believe in evolution and/or global warming. I will publicly admit as much from now on, including the fact that I was wrong about the subject before.

Note: I’ll keep a very open mind, but good luck trying. I was once a strong believer in both evolution and global warming, until I actually LOOKED AT THE EVIDENCE AND ARGUMENTS MYSELF instead of just accepting what the evolution textbooks and An Inconvenient Truth say.

So you might have a hard time re-convincing me of all the old arguments that I had debunked for me to turn me from proponent to skeptic.

Video: Refuting Al Gore on CO2 Levels and Temperature

December 14, 07

If you guys are here from the US Politics discussion board, see this massive collection of evidence refuting global warming claims, including the ignorant claim that Earth is still warming and the polar ice caps are melting.


Since Al Gore refuses to debate reputable skeptics of global warming, preferring instead to spread his propaganda unchallenged in the mass media, Demand Debate decided to splice together their own ‘debate with Al Gore’ by comparing his claims with their factually-based science.

The result: The Al Gore Debates Global Warming Video. Click the link to see the video on Youtube, or embedded below:

It’s a short but very informative 9 minute video, comparing the claims made by Al Gore in his (thoroughly debunked) film An Inconvenient Truth with the REAL facts of the matter.

Below I take you through the highlights (i.e. parts that work well as screen-captured graphics), with explanation, but I highly encourage you to spend the 9 minutes to patiently sit through Al Bore’s outright and knowing lies and then find out the truth behind the CO2 smokescreen.

Comments follow pics. Most pics of graphs can be enlarged:



It starts off with Al Gore (yes, I intentionally chose the least flattering moment to screen-capture)…


Showing off his CO2-levels and temperature graph.


Notice something? If you look closely, does the temperature line (above) actually start moving after the CO2 line (below)? More on that later…

But first off, the skeptical scientists immediately debunk Gore’s claim that CO2 levels have never been as high as now by revealing that in the past, CO2 levels have been 3 to 10 times higher (3rd paragraph of link) than today’s measly 0.0383% of the atmosphere!


The global temperature record shows a very curious trend – the warming of the world occured before 1940, when industry was nowhere near the capacity of modern times. Yet, during the post WWII industrial boom when massive amounts of CO2 were being spewed into the atmosphere, temperatures actually decreased!


Here it is closer up again.


The temperature record for the Arctic shows it even more clearly. Again, most of the temperature rise occurs before 1940. But when industry (and carbon emissions) masively boomed, the temperature dropped until 1975!


Stunning. This is why Al Gore spends so little time on the supposedly grand-indicting temperature/CO2 chart, and doesn’t allow us a close look at it. Even when he made An Inconvenient Truth, he knew that the data showed CO2 levels following temperature levels, not the other way round as he falsely and dishonestly claims!


A close up, showing the clear 800 year lag where temperature goes up and down, then CO2 levels follow by going up and down 800 years later. The AGW crowd cannot satisfactorily explain away with their illogical claims of positive feedback, which would have resulted in temperatrues shooting upwards nonstop until the Earth became like Venus.


Super close up. In short, on the matter of the temperature-CO2 relationship, Al Gore is trying to sell us a totally reversed cause-and-effect, like claiming that someone getting shot in the head is caused by that person dying of brain trauma.

And to finish, I present the credentials of the array of respectable scientists who flatly contradict and reject Al Gore’s shamster junk science. Global warming fearmongering hysterians, I dare you to accuse every one of these men of being on the payroll of ExxonMobil or G.W. Bush.

So much for ‘scientific consensus on global warming’ and ‘no reputable scientists deny the reality of CO2’s role in causing global warming’. If the 99.95% of the whole world’s scientists rejected global warming, its proponents would still portray it as having the support of the majority.

The Star Opinion: More Than Meets the Eye

November 6, 07

Another of my strides in breaking up the brainwashed-consensus with hard-edged scientific skepticism – that is woefully lacking here in Malaysia. Sigh. Long battle to go… But I’ll keep fighting it.

The Star carried the Reuters report “Nordic nations sound alarm over melting Arctic” on 1 Nov 2007 actually, not 10 Nov. Here are the screen captures below:

   NordicAlarm1   NordicAlarm2

(Actually, I read the news report that will come four days from today, which is but a small demonstration of my Hiro Nakamura-ish time-bending powers. But who’d believe me?)


From The Star Opinion 6 Nov 2007:

   GWMoreThanMeetsEye1   GWMoreThanMeetsEye2

More than meets the eye

I NOTED with interest the article “Nordic nations sound alarm over melting Arctic.” It was among the top ten most viewed news links on TheStar Online (Nov 10), showing the interest that Malaysians have in the issue.

The report states that the Arctic ice has been shrinking and is now at its lowest level since 1979, a clear sign of global warming caused by greenhouse gases. Among the list of worries is the predicted rising of sea levels, which will threaten coastal areas.

However, like most global warming alarmist reports about melting ice, the news piece neglects to mention that Antarctic ice levels are currently at the highest levels since 1979!

This will come as a surprise to most people as Al Gore’s film on global warming, An Inconvenient Truth, claims that the Larsen ice shelf in the Antarctic is breaking up due to it becoming warmer. This happens to be true.

However, the area that Gore chooses to focus on represents 2% of Antarctica’s area. The other 98% has actually been cooling for the past 50 years! So where is the global effect of global warming?

Melting Arctic ice is used to cause panic and rally support for anti-emissions legislature, but increasing Antarctic ice levels is carefully kept out of the camera’s sights. 

If ice melts in one area but water is deposited as landbound snow in another area, where will the rising seas get their water from?

In fact, in stark contrast to paranoid global warming claims, sea levels haven’t risen around low-lying coastal islands such as Vanuatu and the Maldives in more than 1,250 years!

The global warming campaign of facts is one where heat waves are trumpeted as proof of global warming, but record blizzards are swept under the carpet as anomalies; where deaths from hotter summers are avidly included in the IPCC reports as a predicted human cost of global warming, but lives saved due to less cold winters are not taken into account.

Then again, global warming is increasingly blamed for everything on either end of the climate spectrum – both higher and lower ocean salinity, flooding and drought, hot and cold weather. 

If anything happens in the natural world, it must be the fault of global warming. 

So I suppose that with politically-coloured sensationalist science like this, blaming both the thinning of Arctic ice and the thickening of Antarctic ice on global warming would make perfect sense.



The editors left out my full letter’s most amusing parts about ais kacang and cougar attacks:

However, the area that Gore carefully chooses to focus on represents a mere 2% of Antarctica’s area. The other 98% has actually been cooling for the past 50 years! So where is the ‘global’ effect of global warming?
If you had two bowls of ais kacang and scooped all the ice from the first bowl into the second bowl, the first bowl would have less ice and the second bowl more ice. But by focusing only on the first bowl, you could report that the total amount of ice you have is now less.
This is similar to the situation with global warming propaganda, where melting Arctic ice is used to cause panic and rally support for anti-emissions legislature, but increasing Antarctic is carefully kept out of the camera’s sights.

Then again, global warming is increasingly blamed for everything on either end of the climate spectrum – both higher and lower ocean salinity, both flooding and drought, both hot and cold weather. If anything happens in the natural world, it must be the fault of global warming.

It’s gotten to the point where even children’s fevers, allergies to maple syrup, duller autumn colours, and even the occasional cougar attack on people are blamed on global warming!
So I suppose that with politically-coloured sensationalist ‘science’ like this, blaming both the thinning of Arctic ice and the thickening of Antarctic ice on global warming would make perfect sense.

NST Letters: Global warming: Inconvenient Truths of Another Kind

November 1, 07

My letter to the NST on global warming fallacies has arrived.  Coming after they printed my letter NST: Nobel Peace Prize: Another Side to Gore’s Efforts to Combat Global Warming, it seems the NST editors may not care much for Al Gore and global warming fermongering either! Kekekeke!

Unlike The Star which used a photo and caption that seemingly contradicted the gist of my message in The Star Opinions: Kyoto will Creep Up on Us, the NST used a photo that seems contradictory, until you read the decidedly (and surprisingly frank) supportive caption!

Full letter below.


From NST Letters 1 Nov 2007 (NST removes links after about a week):

InconvenientTruthAnotherkind1   InconvenientTruthAnotherkind2   InconvenientTruthAnotherkind3

Global warming: Inconvenient truths of another kind


A dried-up pond in Hubei province, China. Situations like this have been blamed on global warming. However, the fact is the actual recorded temperature rise over the past 100 years has only been 0.5 degree Celsius.
A dried-up pond in Hubei province, China. Situations like this have been blamed on global warming. However, the fact is the actual recorded temperature rise over the past 100 years has only been 0.5 degree Celsius.

FOR all who believe that global warming is caused primarily by humans and is an undeniable threat to our way of life, I would like to clarify three prime misconceptions about global warming and climate change.

Firstly, whatever you may hear about wildly rising temperatures, the actual recorded rise over the past 100 years has only been 0.5 degree Celsius. This amount is inconsistent with the much vaunted — and yet unproven — computer models that predict a rise of 1.5 degrees due to increased greenhouse gas emissions.

Doubly inconsistent with the global warming theory is that most of the recorded warming took place before 1940. Clearly, industrial and vehicular emissions were greater in the latter half of the 20th century. So why does the data not show an even greater temperature rise from 1940 onwards?

In fact, highly accurate satellite temperature measurements show a warming of only 0.04oC per decade, while grounded stations show an increase of around 0.17oC per decade.

Why such a discrepancy? Could it be because surface stations are often placed in absurd locations, such as in a blisteringly hot parking lot?

Secondly, of the greenhouse gases blamed for global warming, carbon dioxide comprises just 0.0383 per cent of the entire atmosphere. In 2003, the top 20 carbon-emitting nations produced a scant 0.00034147 per cent of atmosphere in carbon emissions.

Such a tiny percentage seems unlikely to increase the greenhouse effect in any meaningful way. Global- warming proponents contend that the carbon dioxide absorbs infrared (heat) waves of a certain wavelength that would otherwise escape into space.

Sceptics counter that once that tiny fraction of infrared waves is absorbed, carbon dioxide ceases to play any meaningful role in the greenhouse effect — particularly when all of the other wavelengths of energy it can absorb overlap with other gases, including the ever-abundant water vapour.

More likely, other non-human factors such as the solar cycle are the drivers for climate change. Global temperatures rise and fall for the most part independently of human carbon emissions — as they have for the thousands of years before human industry, and for the eons before human civilisation even existed.

Thirdly, I find it astounding that many people unquestioningly concur when the main proponents of anthropogenic (human-caused) global warming theory, such as Al Gore and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), advocate taking drastic measures to cut carbon dioxide emissions.

I am not saying that we should not wean ourselves off fossil fuels and polluting lifestyles. I simply want everyone to get the facts straight on the matter of global warming.

The Kyoto Protocol has already cost Europe multiple billions of euros in higher energy expenses. Yet it has totally failed to curb rising emission levels. Can the developing nations with their fledgling economies afford such ineffective luxuries?

If the threat of climate change is not nearly as impending or dire as the alarmists claim, we would be far better off developing new technologies, building clean wind and solar farms, and gradually shifting to a carbon-neutral lifestyle.

And need I reveal that although Al Gore and the IPCC recently won the Nobel Peace Prize for their efforts in increasing the hysteria about climate change, the outcome was decided by a panel comprising a mere four politicians and one historian — not scientists?

Meanwhile, after much research and deliberation, the United Kingdom High Court ruled that nine major scientific errors were present in An Inconvenient Truth (Al Gore’s influential film on global warming), which it also found to be political and partisan in portraying only one side of the global warming debate.

In conclusion, let me remind you that there are always many sides to each story. Even as some nod their heads in agreement with An Inconvenient Truth’s portrayal of Antarctic ice melting, others shake their heads at the fact that the film focuses on the mere two per cent of Antarctica that is warming, while the other 98 per cent not portrayed has actually been cooling — with more ice today than has ever been recorded!

For those who get their “facts” solely from the IPCC, I would suggest that you give a fair hearing to the sceptic’s point of view.

A quick browsing online will turn up many such sites. Some of them are obviously leaning towards strong scepticism, but many of them are well balanced and researched, such as Climate Audit run by Steve McIntyre, the man who recently exposed Nasa’s data on rising temperatures as skewed by the Y2K bug!

UPDATE 13 MARCH 2008: The global warming scam has made Al Gore more than $35 million already


(For a condensed version, see also NST: Nobel Peace Prize: Another Side to Gore’s Efforts to Combat Global Warming)

Clue #1: Al Gore is one of the most recognizable and outspoken proponents of combating anthoropogenic global warming

Al Gore constantly enlightens the masses and rallies them against global warming, which he claims is caused by human activities and will soon result in tragic and devastating changes to our planet. To them, he is the True Hero of Mother Earth.

To that end, Al Gore is the chairman of the Alliance for Climate Protection, produced a movie documentary on global warming called An Inconvenient Truth, is a major partner of eco-group Save Our Selves, organized and supported the Live Earth climate change awareness concerts, supports the Virgin Earth Challenge to remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere, pushed for the Kyoto Treaty in 1990, and has plenty of lectures and books on global warming too.

And horror of horrors, Al Gore has won the Nobel Peace Prize for his fearmongering, money-draining, hoax-spreading efforts! Though his solutions for global warming involve bankrupting the economy and keeping the Thrid World in poverty, his efforts are celebrated as ‘peace’.

Then again, remember that the Nobel Peace Prize is given to works-in-progress, which explains why he can be nominated even though practically zilcho is being accomplished to stop global warming. Other great examples of Nobel Peace Prize peaceful-efforts effectiveness: Henry Kissinger, Yasser Arafat and Jimmy Carter.

Clearly, Al Gore is strongly supportive of ordinary citizens and national governments taking real action to combat global warming.

So how does Al Gore himself take real action to mitigate the impending climate disaster? Move on to clue number two.


Clue #2: Al Gore refuses to take a Personal Energy Ethics Pledge

Back in March of 2007, Al Gore said before various assembled policians that global warming is a moral, not a political issue.

In his Oscar winning, but highly inaccurate film An Inconvenient Truth, Al Gore asked every viewer: “Are you ready to change the way you live?” in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and thus, global warming?

And in his Oscar acceptance speech, Al Gore said: “My fellow Americans, people all over the world, we need to solve the climate crisis. It’s not a political issue; it’s a moral issue. We have everything we need to get started, with the possible exception of the will to act. That’s a renewable resource. Let’s renew it.”

Well, Republican Senator James Inhofe responded to Al Gore’s call to ethical morality, lifestyle change, and the will to act by asking Al Gore himself:

“There are hundreds of thousands of people who adore you and would follow your example by reducing their energy usage if you did. Don’t give us the run-around on carbon offsets or the gimmicks the wealthy do.”

“Are you willing to make a commitment here today by taking this pledge to consume no more energy for use in your residence than the average American household by one year from today?”

Inhofe then invite Gore to take the following ‘Personal Energy Ethics Pledge’:


Predictably, Al Gore refused. – From Newsbusters: Al Gore Refuses to Take Personal Energy Ethics Pledge During Global Warming Hearing

But why? Wouldn’t it be an excellent example, a briliant piece of motivation to all his followers, if Al Gore – the MAN himself – reduced his greenhouse gas output ion order to save the earth?

Move on to clue number three to find out why…


Clue #3: Al Gore consumes huge amounts of energy and emits massive amounts of greenhouse gases

When you take a look at Al Gore’s consumption and emission habits, you’ll realize why he and all other celebrity global warming proponents are so loathe to reduce their carbon footprints…

It’s basically impossible to cut down their resource use and waste output without cutting down their level of comfort and decadence!

The average household in America consumes 10,656 kilowatt-hours (kWh) per year. In 2006, Gore devoured nearly 221,000 kWh. That’s more than 20 times the national average.

In August 2006 alone, Gore burned through 22,619 kWh, guzzling more than twice the electricity in one month than an average American family uses in an entire year.

Since the release of ‘An Inconvenient Truth’, Gore’s energy consumption has increased from an average of 16,200 kWh per month in 2005 to 18,400 kWh per month in 2006.

Natural gas bills for Gore’s mansion and guest house averaged $1,080 per month last year. – From Al Gore: High Priest of Global Warming Hypocrisy

Ah, but Al Gore and his ilk have a readied defense of their lavish and wasteful lifestyles… They simply buy carbon credits and offsets.


Clue #4: Al Gore purchases carbon emission offsets

Gore purchased 108 blocks of “green power” for each of the past three months up to Feb 2007, according to a summary of his power bills. That’s a total of $432 a month Gore paid extra for solar or other renewable energy sources.

The green power Gore purchased is equivalent to recycling 2.48 million aluminum cans or 286,092 pounds of newspaper, according to comparison figures on NES’s Web site. – From Detroit Free Press: Critics question how green Gore really is

Meanwhile, in order to mitigate the obscene amounts of energy sucked up and carbon dioxide spewed out by Al Gore’s Live Trash – I mean, Live Earth, the organizers and jet-across-the-world-to-perform-at-Live-Earth music artistes also buy some carbon offsets, spending a fraction of the vast riches at their disposal.

So the next investigative question is: Where does Al Gore get all his money to purchase carbon offsets with? And what mysterious source might he buy those offsets from?


Clue #5: Al Gore purchases his carbon offsets from companies he himself founded, owns, controls and profits from!

Al buys his carbon offsets from Generation Investment Management LLP, which is “an independent, private, owner-managed partnership established in 2004 and with offices in London and Washington, D.C.,” that, for a fee, will invest your money in “high-quality companies at attractive prices that will deliver superior long-term investment returns.” Generation is a tax-exempt U.S. 501(c)3. And who’s the chairman and founding partner? Al Gore.

So Al can buy his carbon offsets from himself. Better yet, he can buy them with the money he gets from his long-time relationship with Occidental Petroleum. See how easy it is to be carbon-neutral? All you have do is own a gazillion stocks in Big Oil, start an eco-stockbroking firm to make eco-friendly investments, use a small portion of your oil company’s profits to buy some tax-deductible carbon offsets from your own investment firm. – From Chicago Sun-Times: How Gore’s massive energy consumption saves the world (a well satirizing read)

See also WorldNet Daily: Gore’s ‘carbon offsets’ paid to firm he owns (Critics say justification for energy-rich lifestyle serves as way for former VP to profit)

So, after all the fact finding on motive and ability, here are the deductive steps and the conclusion…



Al Gore stirs up paranoid fears about global warming through concerts, speeches, books and a film.

Al Gore strongly urges listeners and viewers to cut down their carbon footprint, or if they are unable to, to purchase carbon offsets.

Al Gore pushes for mandatory, government enforced carbon emissions caps to limit carbon dioxide output from industry. If they cannot do so, they may instead purchase carbon credits as a form of trade with less CO2-emitting companies and carbon trade brokers.

Al Gore founded and chairs a carbon trading company which – completely by coincidence of course – provides the required guilt-assuaging, carbon penalty-avoiding carbon offsets and credits.

Al Gore meanwhile lives and splurges extravagantly, consuming obscene amounts of resources and energy while polluting the atmosphere with much more carbon dioxide than ordinary folk. He justifies this by purchasing carbon offsets from himself. (This is like eating at your own restaurant.)

The above shows how Al Gore doesn’t seem to follow his own heartfelt call to live change the way we live in order to stop global warming. Neither does he act as if global warming is really the dire and impending doom he publicly and loudly warns it is. (This is like warning everyone that the water tank is nearly empty while taking an hour-long shower…every few hours.)



Al Gore is using global warming hysteria – which he himself doesn’t really believe in – to rake in huge profits through his carbon traing company, at the expense of individuals, businesses, industries and government.



So is spreading global warming paranoia and promoting carbon dioxide carbon dioxide cap-and-trade REALLY merely a huge money-making scam? A latter day Charles Ponzi, only on a global scale?

Or am I being a smear-tactic using, attack the messenger ad hominem, religiously motivated global warming denier?

In answer to this query, you might be shocked to find out how the Kyoto Protocol was born, and just who helped give birth to it…


From Investigate Magazine, 5 Oct 2006, The Kyoto Conspiracy (which has references at bottom of original site):

About 20 years ago Enron was owner and operator of an interstate network of natural gas pipelines, and had transformed itself into a billion-dollar-a-day commodity trader, buying and selling contracts and their derivatives to deliver natural gas, electricity, internet bandwidth, whatever.

The 1990 Clean Air Act amendments authorized the Environmental Protection Agency to put a cap on how much pollutant the operator of a fossil-fueled plant was allowed to emit. In the early 1990s Enron had helped establish the market for, and became the major trader in, EPA’s $20 billion-per-year sulphur dioxide cap-and-trade program, the forerunner of today’s proposed carbon credit trade. This commodity exchange of emission allowances caused Enron’s stock to rapidly rise.

Then came the inevitable question, what next? How about a carbon dioxide cap-and-trade program? The problem was that CO2 is not a pollutant, and therefore the EPA had no authority to cap its emission.

Al Gore took office in 1993 and almost immediately became infatuated with the idea of an international environmental regulatory regime. He led a U.S. initiative to review new projects around the world and issue ‘credits’ of so many tons of annual CO2 emission reduction. Under law a tradeable system was required, which was exactly what Enron also wanted because they were already trading pollutant credits. Thence Enron vigorously lobbied Clinton and Congress, seeking EPA regulatory authority over CO2.

From 1994 to 1996, the Enron Foundation contributed nearly $1 million dollars – $990,000 – to the Nature Conservancy, whose Climate Change Project promotes global warming theories. Enron philanthropists lavished almost $1.5 million on environmental groups that support international energy controls to “reduce” global warming.

Enron then started to finance everything related to the global warming hype, including grants to scientists – but asking for results favorable to their interest – “proof” that humans were responsible for the excessive emissions of CO2 through fossil fuel burning.

Enron CEO Ken Lay realised that as the main if not the only international and domestic trader in the new barter world of carbon credits, Enron could realise hitherto unimagined wealth. Such credits, of course, would only become bankable pieces of paper if governments, particularly the US Government, established and policed a global policy of decarbonisation under which a global tax on carbon was to be enforced.

The gargantuan rents which Enron energetically sought could be realized only if the Kyoto Protocol became established as part of US and international law.

As the movement to establish the Kyoto Protocol developed momentum, it was necessary for Ken Lay to build up alliances with the green movement including Greenpeace. A 1998 letter, signed by Lay and a few other bigwigs asked President Clinton, in essence, to harm the reputations and credibility of scientists who argued that global warming was an overblown issue, because these individuals were standing in Enron’s way. The letter, dated Sept. 1, asked the president to shut off the public scientific debate on global warming, which continues to this date.

Enron commissioned its own internal study of global warming science. It turned out to be largely in agreement with the same scientists that Enron was trying to shut up. After considering all of the inconsistencies in climate science, the report concluded: “The very real possibility is that the great climate alarm could be a false alarm. The anthropogenic warming could well be less than thought and favorably distributed.”

One of Enron’s major consultants in that study was NASA scientist James Hansen, who started the whole global warming mess in 1988 with his bombastic congressional testimony.

If the Kyoto Protocol were ratified and in full force, experts estimated that Americans would lose between $100 billion and $400 billion each year. Additionally, between 1 and 3.5 million jobs could be lost. That means that each household could lose an average of up to $6,000 each year.

That is a lot to ask of Americans just so large energy companies can pocket millions from a regulatory scheme. Moreover, a cost of $400 billion annually makes Enron’s current one-time loss of $6 billion look like pocket change. Little wonder Americans and the incoming Bush administration did not want a bar of it.



So am I, kitty. So am I.

Official British Court Finds 11 Inaccuracies in Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth, Labels It As Political Propaganda

October 10, 07

UPDATE: Just 9 errors.


Bwah ha ha ha ha ha! Take that in your face, Gorezilla!

If this keeps up, Al Gore and his hypocrite cronies could be conclusively debunked as utterly wrong and disowned as dishonest swindlers within my lifetime!

Before allowing it to be shown in schools Britain-wide, the British government has officially tried AL Gore’s global warming propa-scam-da film, An Inconvenient Truth, in court… And have reached the following conclusions (bolding is mine):


…the Court found that the film was misleading in 11 respects and that the Guidance Notes drafted by the Education Secretary’s advisors served only to exacerbate the political propaganda in the film.

In order for the film to be shown, the Government must first amend their Guidance Notes to Teachers to make clear that 1.) The Film is a political work and promotes only one side of the argument. 2.) If teachers present the Film without making this plain they may be in breach of section 406 of the Education Act 1996 and guilty of political indoctrination. 3.) Eleven inaccuracies have to be specifically drawn to the attention of school children.

The inaccuracies are:

  • The film claims that melting snows on Mount Kilimanjaro evidence global warming. The Government’s expert was forced to concede that this is not correct.
  • The film suggests that evidence from ice cores proves that rising CO2 causes temperature increases over 650,000 years. The Court found that the film was misleading: over that period the rises in CO2 lagged behind the temperature rises by 800-2000 years.

[See Climate Skeptic where you can find this outright lie to school children to spread global warming propaganda graph:


And the actual facts graph:


Teaching blatant, 180-degrees turned around untruths to kids… Can global warming fearmongers get any more intentionally, ethicslessly dishonest? Unfortunately, being comprised mostly of LIE-berals, I’m sure they can.]

  • The film uses emotive images of Hurricane Katrina and suggests that this has been caused by global warming. The Government’s expert had to accept that it was “not possible” to attribute one-off events to global warming.
  • The film shows the drying up of Lake Chad and claims that this was caused by global warming. The Government’s expert had to accept that this was not the case.
  • The film claims that a study showed that polar bears had drowned due to disappearing arctic ice. It turned out that Mr Gore had misread the study: in fact four polar bears drowned and this was because of a particularly violent storm.
  • The film threatens that global warming could stop the Gulf Stream throwing Europe into an ice age: the Claimant’s evidence was that this was a scientific impossibility.
  • The film blames global warming for species losses including coral reef bleaching. The Government could not find any evidence to support this claim.
  • The film suggests that the Greenland ice covering could melt causing sea levels to rise dangerously. The evidence is that Greenland will not melt for millennia.
  • The film suggests that the Antarctic ice covering is melting, the evidence was that it is in fact increasing.

[See Irrefutable, It-Is-A-Fact Global Warming Causes ‘All-Time’ High Antarctic Ice.]

  • The film suggests that sea levels could rise by 7m causing the displacement of millions of people. In fact the evidence is that sea levels are expected to rise by about 40cm over the next hundred years and that there is no such threat of massive migration.
  • The film claims that rising sea levels has caused the evacuation of certain Pacific islands to New Zealand. The Government are unable to substantiate this and the Court observed that this appears to be a false claim.

Irrefutable, It-Is-A-Fact Global Warming Causes ‘All-Time’ High Antarctic Ice

September 13, 07

An article that made me go: “Stoopid half-truth storytelling manipulating global warming propagandists, DOH!

Climate Skeptic: Antarctic Sea Ice at Record High reports that while National Geographic trumpets that Arctic ice is at an ‘all-time low’, the ‘all-time’ mentioned is from 1979 to present. Wow, like, less than 30 years ‘all-time’.

That’s like, I dunno, 0.00000006667 of ‘all time of the Earth’s existence’. Or even 0.00000002189 of ‘all time of the Universe’s existence.’

Kinda small for ‘all time’, don’t you think? It’s actually ‘all time since measurements of the ice started being taken by satellite.’ Or perhaps even more accurately, ‘all time’ as far back as is convenient for GW proponents’ arguments.

Misleading global warming zombie-speak aside, while the Arctic ice may be at its lowest in the mere past 28 years, Antarctic ice is at its highest in these 28 years!

In fact, it appears that there has been no measured warming in Antractica for the past 50 years

Explain that away, Al Gore and your film an Inconvenient Truth! The real inconvenient truth in this case is that Gore most likely knew about the fact that Antarctic ice has NOT been melting.

But in order to bolster his film and dupe us gullible viewers, he cherry-picked the location and portrayed only the tiny 2% of the Antarctic that was actually showing some slight warming.

Let me guess, 2% is enough to make a consensus, right? After all, it works for scientific papers on climate change, where only 45% of the papers agreeing with global warming fears is enough to be a ‘consensus of ALL scientists’.

And as for the Arctic ice all melting and the polar bears disappearing… Someone actually took the fairy tales for real and got stuck in the thick Arctic ice!

Oh, but wait… If global warming can be blamed for both oceans getting saltier and oceans less salty, I suppose it can cause both more ice and less ice. And both higher temperatures and lower temperatures. And both more rain and less rain. Which are, of course, both bad for us somehow.

Global warming really has this win-win-win-win obfuscation all planned out.


Al Gore: High Priest of Global Warming Hypocrisy

March 23, 07


UPDATE 18 JUNE 2008: Al Gore’s energy use has INCREASED!!!!

Al Gore has been promoting himself as a champion of environmentalism who is leading the good fight against global warming. With his Academy Award For Best Documentary for ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ (which has been debunked by British government court!), he has suceeded in becoming the most prominent of the Kyoto-loving club members.

He’s also the most self-righteous hypocrite of the whole lot.

According to this report, the average household in America consumes 10,656 kilowatt-hours (kWh) per year. In 2006, Gore devoured nearly 221,000 kWh. That’s more than 20 times the national average.

In August 2006 alone, Gore burned through 22,619 kWh, guzzling more than twice the electricity in one month than an average American family uses in an entire year.

And since the release of ‘An Inconvenient Truth’, Gore’s energy consumption has increased from an average of 16,200 kWh per month in 2005 to 18,400 kWh per month in 2006.

See a 2008 video slamming Al Gore’s massively selfish and hypocritical energy use at this link.

Gore’s extravagant energy use does not stop at his electric bill. Natural gas bills for Gore’s mansion and guest house averaged $1,080 per month last year. Natural gas burns in air to produce… You guessed it, the evil temperature-raising pollutant carbon dioxide!


And compare this lavish energy expenditure by ‘Friend of the environment’ Gore to ‘We don’t need Kyoto’ Bush:

So who’s the real champion of Green here? I guess Bush is an environmental hypocrite too, but the reverse of Gore – he downplays environmentalist concerns about global warming, but has an energy saving home!


The smokestack of the left represents the pollution caused by Al Gore’s energy-guzzling living and travelling habits. The one on the right, the pollution caused by all the hot air that he’s so full off. (It gives me perverse pleasure in using a Greenpeace anti-pollution picture here.)

Gore defends himself by saying that much of his energy use comes from ‘green power’, as readable here. It is claimed that that is ‘equivalent’ to recycling 2.48 million aluminum cans or 286,092 pounds of newspaper.

But seriously, energy from renewable resources (the so-called ‘green power’) provides but a fraction of what is currently needed to run cities, vehicles and industries – whatmore with global warming-phobic environmentalists opposing the alternative energy source that provides the most power, i.e. nuclear energy.

If every ‘green’ supporter were to use energy as carelessly as Al Gore does, green power will be even more woefully inadequate for everyone’s needs!

And as I’d stated in a comment earlier on: Note too that every time ‘Save the environment’ celebrity flies off in his/her private jet to attend an anti-global warming function, they emit more CO2 than most of us can emit in our entire lives.

And how many, many times they fly around the world to attend their social gatherings and self-promoting concerts where they denounce CO2 emissions! (Case in point: John Travolta)


Live Earth? More Like Live Trash!

Not to mention their resource-and-energy guzzling luxury cars, luxury mega-mansions, luxury goods flown in from halfway across the world, luxury holidays jet-hopping around Europe…


Al Gore himself is a major CO2 emitter. This article says he and his entourage flew from Atlanta to Hollywood then to Washington to attend preview screenings of ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ in 3 days. Then used 5 gas-guzzling SUVs to travel 500 yards at the Cannes film festival, all the way over in France.

CEI even produced a (rather jerky) video reminding the wastersaurus that his frequent private flights do not fall in line with his advice in ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ to ‘telecommute from home’ and ‘reduce air travel’. Visit the source at this site , or view the Youtube at this link.

Jesus would have called them all “HYPOCRITES!” and told them to first remove the coal-fired power plant from their own eyes, so that they can see clearly to remove the speck of pencil lead in our eyes.

And if such haughty celebrities are the Environmental Pharisees, then Al Gore is their High Priest of Global Warming Hypocrisy. If anyone can Photoshop his face into a Pharisee outfit, please send it to me for inclusion.

And Al Gore isn’t just a lieing, convenient truths hypocrite when it comes to global warming…


But with anything else that suits his agenda as well, such as the Iraq War.


Video evidence here! Will Gore suddenly shift to blaming the next Republican President for being the one who scares us with global warming hysteria in a decade’s time?

It is a clear example of how he is willing to lie about anything in order to benefit himself… Including the environment. See Al Gore: High Commander of War & Peace Hypocrisy for more.
