Global Scamming: Chapter 2
Posted by cann0nba11 on March 31, 2008
Al Gore is at it again. First the Oscar and the Nobel Prize for a two hour walk through his mind-numbing presentation and his book. Now he is taking his crusade to an entirely new level. Last night on 60 Minutes we learned that he will be spending $300 million over the next three years on a nationwide ad campaign to spread the message about global warming.
Where the hell is this money coming from? When asked he danced around the answer and said that all of the profits from his book were going toward this, plus the cash from the Nobel Peace Prize. Great. If we are hugely generous perhaps this totals $10M. Where is the other $290M coming from? We won’t know anytime soon because the softball 60 minutes interviewer failed to follow up with the obvious question. (Of course, why should I expect any real questioning of the Goracle by CBS?)
Once upon a time everyone on earth thought that the world was flat. There was no debating this obvious fact. We are now reaching a similar scenario via the rantings of Al Gore and the global warming activist radicals (GWARs). Science usually requires debate, yet if anyone dares to counter Gore’s ‘facts’ they are considered loony, crazy, wacko. So let’s set the tone of this blog entry:
I believe the Earth is getting slightly warmer. Slightly.
I believe that human contribution to this increase is statistically insignificant.
I believe that the billions that Gore and his followers are suggesting be spent will be a huge waste that borders on criminal negligence.
I believe that if every suggested remedy to global warming was enacted today that we would alter the temperature of Earth enough to, well, to not do a damned thing we could notice.
I believe that countries like India and China, who are responsible for two thirds of industrial carbon emissions, couldn’t care less about enacting change.
I believe that global warming activists are unwilling to engage in debate because they are more concerned about standing for something than they are about facts.
Here are some facts that the press or Al Gore won’t report on:
That big arctic glacier the size of Connecticut that GWARs are screaming about hasn’t floated away. In fact, it was “in danger” of separating,” it never actually separated. Furthermore, the crack was most likely caused by the combination of increased underwater volcanic activity in the area combined with an earthquake. But really, this point is moot since the winter freeze came and the whole area froze back together.
- 96.5% of all carbon dioxide emissions are from natural sources, mankind is responsible for only 3.5%, with 0.6% coming from fuel to move vehicles, and about 1% from fuel to heat buildings. Even if humans stopped emitting carbon dioxide entirely effect on the world would be negligible.
- For the past 10,000 years, the Earth has actually been cooling.
Science shows us that arctic ice is actually expanding. Here’s a picture:
“Al Gore stands to make a ton of money from the hysteria he is creating. Gore buys his carbon offsets through Generation Investment Management. It may be interesting to note that Gore helped found Generation Investment Management, through which he and others pay for offsets. The firm invests the money in solar, wind and other projects that reduce energy consumption around the globe. Gore is chairman of the firm and, presumably, draws an income or will make money as its investments prosper. In other words, he “buys” his “carbon offsets” from himself, through a transaction designed to boost his own investments and return a profit to himself. To be blunt, Gore doesn’t buy “carbon offsets” through Generation Investment Management – he buys stocks.”
“According to their own documents, GIM intends to invest in, or buy companies poised to cash in on Global Warming concerns. Putting this in perspective, for years the left and their media minions have posited that George W. Bush started war with Iraq to benefit the company Vice President Dick Cheney used to run, Halliburton, as well as Bush’s oil tycoon friends. In fact, there have been times when you couldn’t swing a dead cat in any pressroom in this nation without hitting a reporter working on such a story.
Yet, as the former Vice President continues to plug global warming as a coming crisis in need of immediate attention, the same media completely ignore his obvious financial conflicts of interest. No liberal media bias there”
The main point of my rant is that Al Gore is pushing junk science on a gullible world that is willing to spend billions to make themselves feel better. There are so many other things this money could be spent on, yet the lemmings don’t care. Yet Gore alone is about to spend $300M to advertise and brainwash the masses on what could be considered the greatest scam in recent history. I wonder how he can sleep at night.
