Al Gore Bad for Your Environment

While you get an endless dose of Al Gore stories, be it for his silly documentary, getting awards for his silly documentary, or fawning media praise every time he opens his mouth, we prefer to bring you stories poking fun at this moron.

Is Al Gore Bad For Your Mental Health? from Newsbusters discusses a Toronto Star report which relates the feelings of terror from the nonstop global warming hype.
Al Gore bad for your mental health? Think about it.

The message of environmental destruction being delivered by Gore – and a host of others in recent months – is proving too much to handle for some who feel helpless controlling the forces of nature.

Tears. Sleepless nights. Rage. They're all part of a thought-provoking anxiety over the environment that's being likened to the feeling many had a half-century ago when nuclear war appeared imminent.

"Sometimes I do cry and I don't think I'm the only one," said Jenny Greenop, 23, an environmental studies and biology major at the University of Toronto, when asked about her views on the state of the planet.
It gets better.
"I think it's more than anxiety. I think it's terror."

O'Neill finds similarities between the way people feel today about global warming and the threat of nuclear war back in the 1950s and early '60s "because it's a human threat to life and the environment."
Meanwhile, Al Gore's Recycled Doom traces history back to the late 1980's, when all sorts of apocalyptic predictions were made, none of which have come true.

So why should we believe the hysteria now?
Now comes another warm wave of media smooches and applause with the news of his plan for an international set of “Live Earth” concerts to promote massive government action to curb humanity’s excessive reliance on energy. Impending global doom has become such a hip cause it’s now pushed by Cameron Diaz, Jon Bon Jovi, and a flock of other Hollywood astrophysicists, the homelessness issue having become passe.

Ever since the whole planet-panic kicked in around Earth Day 1970, there have been repeated predictions of impending doom, which didn’t exactly work out. When will someone in the media ever admit this?

Go back to 1989 and 1990. Instead of NBC’s Katie Couric handing the microphone over to Al Gore to lament how Manhattan’s about to go underwater, the same NBC network handed its microphone and camera crew directly to left-wing “Population Bomb” author Paul Ehrlich, awarding him large chunks of air time to imagine America losing the nation’s capital and the entire state of Florida.

In May of 1989, Ehrlich claimed, global warming was going to melt the polar ice caps, causing a flood in which "we could expect to lose all of Florida, Washington D.C., and the Los Angeles basin...we'll be in rising waters with no ark in sight." Ehrlich didn’t give a time frame, but his panicked report clearly suggested doom around the corner.
Don't expect the alarmists to ever admit they're wrong.
Skeptics of global warming are even being compared to Holocaust deniers. It seems that climate science isn’t the only thing leftists monstrously exaggerate.

Don’t expect that in 2027, NBC will challenge Al Gore to explain why his “climate crisis” talk of Manhattan under water never occurred, it being assumed that NBC will still be broadcasting out of New York. By then, the torch of panic will be passed on to a new generation, which will no doubt also ignore the collapsed predictions of yesteryear as they pat themselves on the back as the vanguard of planetary compassion.
Yes, in 2027, we'll have a bunch of very tired people who haven't slept in 20 years babbling incoherently about the next ice age. Or maybe freaking out that in nine more years, we'll get hit by an asteroid.
