Welcome to the weekly round-up. This week I’ve got almost 100 links to skeptical salaciousness, inconvenient truths and junk science; and one sizzling link for the hottie. I spoil you.Get caffeinated and jump in.
Al Gore’s ‘we‘ campaign is unique. In the history of the world, no crisis has ever required a $300 million advertising spend, but I digress. Al’s ‘we’-bots are encouraged to use his, ahem, simple tool, to write to the media to encourage things like clean energy, less CO2 and free unicorns. Or something.
On his blog, Saint Al of Gore hearts Barack; in a second post, Al hearts Barack even more. Big Al is afraid that scarey chi-Coms are going to steal America’s manufacturing business. Inconveniently for Al, the green movement’s push for CFL bulbs means that ALL light bulbs sold in America will be made in China. Nice play, Shakespeare.
The 4th Annual carbon offset sale.Al’s in a new movie; he’s not going to like ‘Not Evil, Just Wrong’.Al Gore spoke at East Tennesse U and declared that global warming increases the chance of deaths from heat waves and shellfish poisoning, and an increase in cholera and kidney stones. Because Al’s all about the science, not the scare.
Al Gore’s BFF and global warming muppet, Jim Hansen, declared that the the world faces catastrophe if CO2 isn’t reduced. Hanson’s colleagues say he overstated the case, but what did they expect from a man that calls coal deliveries ‘death trains’?David Suzuki, Canada’s own Gore-lite, catches some heat for blatantly exaggerating the effects of global warming. In another article, Suzuki’s totalitarian mask slips as he demands a single overseer of the eco-management of BC. He’s advocating a dictator model, which I find unsurprising, just look at the people that think just like him.
