Al Gore is nothing but a two-bit charlatan, but he is treated by the press establishment like a prophet, a courageous leader, a selfless crusader, a man of vision and ideals.
Which are you going to believe: Al Gore or your own eyes?
Forget what we in the United States and many around the world have experienced this winter, he writes in a New York Times op-ed. It may seem colder, but this is exactly what should be expected in a global-warming scenario, he claims. Just as a snowless winter in Washington a few years ago was also exactly what we should expect.
If it’s hot, blame global warming. If it’s cold, blame climate change.
Al Gore is not a serious person. He’s a get-rich-quick artist who is peddling the biggest con game in the history of man.
He once famously accused George W. Bush of “playing on our fears.” But listen to Gore’s voice of “reason” in his latest screed:
- We’re facing “an unimaginable calamity requiring large-scale, preventive measures to protect human civilization as we know it.”
- Our grandchildren will “one day look back on us as a criminal generation that … selfishly and blithely ignored clear warnings that their fate was in our hands.” (And, by the way, he’s not talking about the national debt his friends in power are placing on those grandchildren.)
- “The crisis is still growing because we are continuing to dump 90 million tons of global-warming pollution every 24 hours into the atmosphere – as if it were an open sewer.”
- Scientists “probably underestimated the range of sea-level rise in this century, the speed with which the Arctic ice cap is disappearing and the speed with which some of the large glacial flows in Antarctica and Greenland are melting and racing to the sea.”
- What’s coming next? “The displacement of hundreds of millions of climate refugees, civil unrest, chaos and the collapse of governance in many developing countries, large-scale crop failures and the spread of deadly diseases.”
I don’t know about you, but I never heard Bush speak in such apocalyptic hyperbole.
Al Gore once claimed credit for inventing the Internet. That, of course, was not true. But, as I have said before, give credit where credit is due. Al Gore did invent global warming – and he has profited mightily from that invention ever since.
He’s nothing but a two-bit charlatan, but he is treated by the press establishment like a prophet, a courageous leader, a selfless crusader, a man of vision and ideals.
He won’t debate anyone on the topic of global warming, because he is woefully short on facts, evidence, data. So he makes it up, and the New York Times eats it up with a spoon.
If it’s warm out, it’s confirmation of the approaching doomsday. If it’s cold out, it’s likewise confirmation of the approaching doomsday.
What a racket!
That anyone believes him at this point is astonishing.
But not so much when you consider the coercive, government-promoted hysteria and propaganda that paves the way for this false prophet – from elementary school through the academy, from the press to the entertainment industry, from the foundations to the other powerful cultural institutions.
Why do you suppose so many foster this paranoia?
The answer is simple: It empowers the powerful and dis-empowers the powerless. It promotes big government and globalism and moves us away from individual and state sovereignty accountable to the people and the rule of law.
I’ll tell you how we combat this: Al Gore needs to be the punch-line of more jokes.
And, later on this year, we have to throw out all of the bums who have partnered with him on selling this scam of manmade catastrophic climate change.
The day of reckoning is coming.
