Welcome to the hippie-head popping round-up of all things inconvenient and skeptical from the wacky world of global warming. This will be the last round-up for a few weeks, The Daily Bayonet is headed to the sceptered isle of his birth for a visit, so you’re on your own. Unless of course you choose to visit the many examples of blog excellence represented in the Blogroll. That was a hint, in case you missed it.
Part One: Al Gore & Friends
Was this the week that Al Gore finally jumped the shark? While it comes as no surprise that the global warming profiteer prophet has a flair for the dramatic, he outdid himself when he compared the global warming threat to the Nazi threat of WWII. This is what Al said, out loud, to a paying audience (emphasis mine):
‘Winston Churchill aroused this nation in heroic fashion to save civilisation in World War Two,’ Mr Gore said. ‘We have everything we need except political will but political will is a renewable resource.’ Mr Gore, who won the Nobel Peace Prize for the climate change film An Inconvenient Truth, said the greatest challenge would be to convince people that the threat from climate change was as urgent as the threat from Nazi Germany.
Global warming alarmists have always been dismissive of history, the use of the word ‘denier’ to label skeptics is an attempt to conflate people who prefer that science be scientific with those that deny Hitler’s genocide of the Jews. Al has taken this skewed version of history and taken it up a notch. A word to Al and his credulous minion hordes, it’s not comparable, not even close. Perhaps it was fortunate that few members of government showed up for the speech, as one of the organizers noted:
Sir David, director of the Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment at Oxford University, which organised the three-day forum, said he was ‘disappointed’ by the poor turnout from members of the Government. He said he had hoped ministers, including the Prime Minister, would attend. ‘That did not transpire. We need to work much harder with the Government.’
After Al’s Godwin moment at the forum, I imagine it will be hard to get any politician in the same zip code, let alone the same room. The Goreacle wasn’t finished with his special version of crazy, he went on to say this:
Climate change, he said, is “ultimately a problem of consciousness”. He went on: “What is being tested is the proposition of whether or not the combination of an opposable thumb and a neocortex is a viable construct on this planet”.
Gore’s handlers were seen removing sharp objects from the vicinity of their man and are seeking a carbon-neutral helmet as we speak.
Before his mini-meltdown in Oxford, Al had blogged earlier about the passage of the cap and bend-over bill, calling it ‘bi-partisan’. And by bipartisan he meant thanks to the 8 GOP quislings that provided political cover for the Goreapelosi tax hike. And yes, that was me using an old term to describe Nazi enablers. Goose sauce, meet gander. Weather warming for Melbourne, Australia. Monday 13th July will see the city blanketed in deep snow with windchills and certain death if you venture outside. It’s the Gore Effect, and it’s real. Public service announcement ends. It would be fair to ask why Al is becoming so desperate in his attempts to sell the global warming hoax, and I have the answer, right here. There is no global warming. Inconvenient, no? To wrap this section, let’s look a bunch of well-meaning people who are deeply concerned for the world’s poor. They have put together a video that begs Al Gore to make a movie to publicize the plight of the world’s starving. Have a look: .. The problem is, the good people at Action Against Hunger failed to show Al how he can monetize their issue, so he’s just not going to return their calls. Also, Al has a lot to do with why Africans are starving.
