The Goracle: Global Warming 'Deniers' are Flat Earthers

Despite mounting evidence contrary to his hysterical proclamations, bloated former politician Al Gore, he of the massive carbon footprint and $30,000 utility bills, is still clinging to his discredited theory of global warming.

Now this embittered clown has the temerity to give an interview to 60 Minutes where he declares those who don't buy his nonsense are akin to those who believe the earth is flat and don't believe man landed on the moon in 1969.
Self-avowed "P.R. agent for the planet" Al Gore says those who still doubt that global warming is caused by man - among them, Vice President Dick Cheney - are acting like the fringe groups who think the 1969 moon landing never really happened, or who once believed the world is flat.

The former vice president and former presidential candidate talks to 60 Minutes correspondent Lesley Stahl in an interview to be broadcast this Sunday, March 30, at 7 p.m. ET/PT.

Confronted by Stahl with the fact some prominent people, including the nation’s vice president, are not convinced that global warming is manmade, Gore responds: "You're talking about Dick Cheney. I think that those people are in such a tiny, tiny minority now with their point of view, they’re almost like the ones who still believe that the moon landing was staged in a movie lot in Arizona and those who believe the world is flat,” says Gore. "That demeans them a little bit, but it's not that far off," he tells Stahl.
What a pious, smug, condescending prick.

The reason people don't believe you is that you have no proven scientific evidence to back up your wild claims. This guy lives in a fantasy world of his own and has become very wealthy peddling misinformation.
