It’s been a couple of weeks since you were rounded-up, so pay attention. The climate crisis is the only crisis in history to have an identity crisis – find out the new and improved official name for Gaia’s impending fiery death and much, much more in this week’s round-up.
Part One: Al Gore & Friends
Al Gore was recently in Australia, the land down under. He took time to meet with 1,000 activists, business leaders and scientists to launch something he likes to call Safe Climate Australia. Frankly, on a continent that has as many natural deadly creatures as Australia, the climate is pretty much a non-issue. Seriously, A Taipan snake, or some warm weather? You figure it out.
Al failed to meet with Aussie Senator Fielding, a recent convert to the skeptic camp, but he did have time to meet Gimli from the Lord of the Rings, which was nice (you’ll need to click to get the jape). The Goreacle was so excited by a magazine article that he blogged about it. Unfortunately the article that Al found so stimulating didn’t start “Dear Penthouse..”, but it did contain alarmist pr0n:
“Picture the scene: in downtown New York City, all-electric cars glide through streets in a zero-emission transport revolution. Polluting, inefficient gasoline and diesel vehicles are nowhere to be seen – or heard. The only things getting in the way of these smooth, noiseless vehicles are the horse-drawn trams.”
Any skeptical scientist knows that their work will be discredited by Al Gore and his acolytes if they so much as accept a free glass with a tank of gas from an oil company, but green lobby money is no problem. Just ask Al. We’ll wrap this section with some of my favorite red meat: green on green action. The folks at Treehugger are upset because perennial hippie and totalitarian tool David Suzuki doesn’t give reforestation a big enough bong hit of lurve as a carbon offset program. Poor things.
Part Two: AGW Scaremongers
Hippies all over the western world are gnashing their teeth at the news that their beloved organic foods are no better for you than regular old pesticide-sprayed produce. So, everyone that felt good about buying a free range carrot for an extra $1 now has the right to feel entirely ripped off. It’s the green way, don’t blame yourself.CLICK HERE to read the rest and see this weeks Global Hottie!
