The film argues that the earth's climate is always changing, and that rapid warmings and coolings took place long before the burning of fossil fuels. It argues that the present single-minded focus on reducing carbon emissions not only may have little impact on climate change, it may also have the unintended consequence of stifling development in the third world, prolonging endemic poverty and disease.It should be curious to see how the divinity school dropout counteracts actual scientists, but I'm sure he'll find a bogeyman.
The film features an impressive roll-call of experts, including nine professors – experts in climatology, oceanography, meteorology, environmental science, biogeography and paleoclimatology – from such reputable institutions as MIT, NASA, the International Arctic Research Centre, the Institut Pasteur, the Danish National Space Center and the Universities of London, Ottawa, Jerusalem, Winnipeg, Alabama and Virginia.
Meanwhile, the Riehl World View has the disturbing Gore Funding Plan For "A New World Order". If you think this global warming nonsense was the only thing on Gore's agenda, think again.
If your employer began paying you 80 cents on the dollar, but, not to worry, the other 20 cents was going to support "good causes", thereby giving you value instead of capital, would you be pleased?Excellently sourced and thoroughly linked, take the time to read through it all.
If not, you won't like what Al Gore has been quietly planning along with his Global Warming initiative. He and others are working to achieve that very thing and to bring it about in a manner which doesn't give you a vote in which values your dollars end up supporting.
Gore is quietly funding an assault on Capitalism as we know it, one that begins but doesn't end with Global Warming. That's only the model for what's coming next.
Sans news conferences and Oscar nods, it's a well-funded, grand design to re-shape, not just America, but the global economy in such a manner so as to inculcate Liberal values into the world's system of finance.
Elsewhere, the inimitable Mark Steyn takes on the Reverend Gore today.
Stop me if you've heard this before, but the other day the Rev. Al Gore declared that "climate change" was "the most important moral, ethical, spiritual and political issue humankind has ever faced.'' Ever. I believe that was the same day it was revealed that George W. Bush's ranch in Texas is more environmentally friendly than the Gore mansion in Tennessee. According to the Nashville Electric Service, the Eco-Messiah's house uses 20 times more electricity than the average American home. The average household consumes 10,656 kilowatt-hours. In 2006, the Gores wolfed down nearly 221,000 kilowatt-hours.Naturally, you are required to read the whole thing.
Over at the American thinker, Jack Kemp (no, not that Jack Kemp) takes umbrage with how Eco-Nazis trivialize the Holocaust.
Al Gore lives the lifestyle of a movie star, with limos, private jets, a mansion, and 20 times the average electricity consumption of the ordinary American. It is beyond repugnant that such a man lecture us on the virtues of consuming less, no matter how rich he might get off the sale of carbon credit indulgences.
If Al invokes Kristallnact, it should be spelled "Cristal"nacht - as in the very expensive French champagne favored by movie stars, drug dealers, and Wall Street hotshots as they nightclub away at glamour spots in Hollywood. Or maybe "crystal," as in Baccarat crystal stemware.
Perhaps if the Gestapo had shined fluorescent bulbs while interrogating prisoners, they could have also participated in saving the earth.
Come to think of it, how many carbon credits did the Nazis earn by lowering the electricity usage of 6 million Jews, as well as by getting many of them to travel by freight train instead of private automobile to concentration camps? In Al Gore's Brave New World, removing human beings from the earth is real plus.
