Al Gore has turned the Global Warming scam into a very lucrative venture.. Since his failure to win the White House in 2000 he has turned his net worth from about $1 Million to about $100 Million. This Newsweek Article proclaims him as the wealthiest Vice President in American History.  Richer than Nelson Rockefeller.

If you think that AL is rolling in cash now, wait until the Carbon Credits Scam fully takes effect. You can bet that Gore like the rest of the Global Warming elitists will find a way to profit from the wealth redistribution system.  

John Coleman The Founder of The Weather Channel has written a very good article on Global Warming that everyone should read. The whole article can be found at ICECAP, but here are are a few excerpts that I found relevent.

It is the greatest scam in history. I am amazed, appalled and highly offended by it. Global Warming; It is a SCAM. Some dastardly scientists with environmental and political motives manipulated long term scientific data to create in allusion of rapid global warming. Other scientists of the same environmental whacko type jumped into the circle to support and broaden the “research” to further enhance the totally slanted, bogus global warming claims. Their friends in government steered huge research grants their way to keep the movement going. Soon they claimed to be a consensus.

The Global Warming activists need the hype to keep those research grants coming their way… The movement is less about the environment than it is about keeping the enviromental Fat Cats fully funded.

I do not oppose environmentalism. I do not oppose the political positions of either party. However, Global Warming, ie Climate Change, is not about environmentalism or politics. It is not a religion. It is not something you “believe in.” It is science; the science of meteorology. This is my field of life-long expertise. And I am telling you Global Warming is a non-event, a manufactured crisis and a total scam. I say this knowing you probably won’t believe a me, a mere TV weatherman, challenging a Nobel Prize, Academy Award and Emmy Award winning former Vice President of United States. So be it.

Again Read the whole article it is well worth it.

Hillary Clinton, jumping on the Al Gore nobel prize winning band wagon is campaigning for Green… and not just illegal contributions from chinese donors.

From the NY Times

Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton on Monday released her plan to combat climate change and to increase energy efficiency, which includes raising fuel standards to 55 miles per gallon by 2030 and creating five million jobs through renewable energy advancements.

The article in the Times is actually a very poor description of Hillary’s energy policiy. For a more detailed description you can check out Hillary’s Campaign Website.

Centered on a cap and trade system for carbon emissions, stronger energy and auto efficiency standards and a significant increase in green research funding, Hillary’s plan will reduce America’s reliance on foreign oil and address the looming climate crisis.

The “looming Climate Crisis” is little more than hype to generate big $$ for Enviromental Fat Cat’s by useing a Cap & Trade System. I would also bet that those same enviromental fat cats are major contributors to Hillary’s campaign, her Political Action Committees, the Clinton legal defense fund, as well as the Clinton Presidential Library.  

Recognizing that transportation accounts for 70 percent of U.S. oil consumption, Hillary would increase fuel efficiency standards to 55 miles per gallon by 2030, but would help automakers retool their production facilities through $20 billion in “Green Vehicle Bonds.”

If auto makers can affordably produce a vehicle that is energy efficient and still delivers the power and utility that Americans need or want in thier vehicles they will sell. There will be no need to subsidize anything through Green Vehicle Bonds or other bailouts. 

Hillary would transform our economy from carbon-based to clean and energy efficient,…

Sounds just like centralized economic planning… where did she get this from the Joseph Stalin handbook on economic planning?

To take the steps necessary to transition to a clean and renewable energy future, Hillary will urge all of the nation’s stakeholders to contribute to the effort.

Read this as higher taxes, and in all likelyhood this tax revenue will not go into research for alternative energy sources but instead be used to increase dependency on the Federal government for all our basic needs. Her energy plan will reduce our energy consumption, but it will also essentially destroy our economy in the process.

I am the first to admit that we as a nation need to move towards energy independence.  But we are not going to get there by Conservation alone. We also need to expand the use of our own energy resources like Coal, Nuclear power, Windfarms, and Solar Power and include expanded exploration and drilling for untapped oil reserves.  

 al-gore.jpgWill the Nobel Prize compel Al to throw his hat into the Presidential ring?

 Some think it will

From MSNBC 

Grass-roots Gore loyalists have been buzzing for weeks about the Nobel Prize announcement scheduled for Oct. 12 in Oslo, Norway. Gore was nominated for his work on global warming, and several longtime Nobel observers believe this could be the year that a champion of climate change gets the prize. “We feel that if [Gore] wins the Nobel Prize … then he can’t not run for president,” says Roy Gayhart, a San Diego-based organizer of a California draft Gore group.

There is nothing that Inconvienient Al could add to the the debate, and if he does jump in all it will do is force an early exit for some of the other candidates… Chris Dodd, John Edwards, and Dennis Kucinich…. On the bright side those candidates could be home for Christmas…

The Iranian Terrorist in Chief will address the General Assembly today at 1:30PM EST but What else does the UN have on the agenda today?

Global Warming 

Rising global temperatures that are melting the Arctic and expanding the oceans are now drawing more than 80 world leaders to the U.N. podium for an unprecedented summit Monday on how to combat climate change.

From California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, a champion of climate-saving legislation, the presidents and premiers will hear that even an often-reluctant United States is pitching in.

“California is moving the United States beyond debate and doubt to action,” he says in remarks prepared for the meeting’s morning kickoff.

Fellow opening speaker Rajendra Pachauri, chief U.N. climate scientist, says there’s now “much greater evidence of human influence on climate change,” and therefore “it’s time for action.”

Of course you can not have a discussion on Global Warming without Al Gore being present to ensure that no other views are presented.

The one-day meeting, with more than 150 nations participating, also was scheduled to hear from such international figures as German Chancellor Angela Merkel and France’s President Nicolas Sarkozy, and from former U.S. vice president and climate campaigner Al Gore.

I have below the only Photographic evidence of the reality of global warming… Maybe Al should have used this in his Inconvienient Half Truth

This could give Hillary fits…

First an upstart Senator with no Experience takes her Hollywood $$$ and now an honest to goodness Academy Award Winning charlatan  is being recruited as potential third Party candidate… By Ralph Nader no less…

Soap-Opera Politics at its best:

From Insight.com

al-gore2.jpgSen. Hillary Rodham Clinton faces a possible new threat to her presidential ambitions.

Former Vice President Al Gore has again been entertaining offers to run for president. Gore has been discussing a run for a third party nomination with family and close aides.

“Al Gore has been energized by the attention he’s been receiving as America’s leading ralph-nader.jpgenvironmentalist,” a political source close to Gore said. “He believes this might present an opportunity to become president or at least try again.”

Sources close to Gore said Ralph Nader has sought to recruit the former vice president to run as the candidate for the Green Party. They said Gore has not rejected the offer and was consulting with family and friends to determine the feasibility of such a candidacy.

It seems the Global Whiners are not only a religious cult but they are also apparently fanatics who will resort to violence or at least the threats of violence to squelch out any dissent of their position.

From the Telegraph

Scientists who questioned mankind’s impact on climate change have received death threats and claim to have been shunned by the scientific community.

They say the debate on global warming has been “hijacked” by a powerful alliance of politicians, scientists and environmentalists who have stifled all questioning about the true environmental impact of carbon dioxide emissions.

Timothy Ball, a former climatology professor at the University of Winnipeg in Canada, has received five deaths threats by email since raising concerns about the degree to which man was affecting climate change.

The President of the Czech Republic is absolutely right, the Doomsday Global Whining crowd is not in the least bit interested in protecting the environment. Instead their interest seems to be in the redistribution of wealth from people, corporations, and nations that are successful (generally Democratic with economies based on Capitalism) to those countries that are not successful (generally despotic regimes attempting to prop up failing socialist economies)…

al-gore.jpgWASHINGTON, March 9 (UPI) — Environmentalism is a religion that is based more on political ambitions than science, the president of the Czech Republic warned Friday.Speaking at the Cato Institute, a public policy think-tank,

President Vaclav Klaus said that environmentalists who clamor for policy change to combat global warming “only pretend” to be promoting environmental protection, and are actually being driven by a political agenda.

“Environmentalism should belong in the social sciences,” much like the idea of communism or other “-isms” such as feminism, Klaus said, adding that “environmentalism is a religion” that seeks to reorganize the world order as well as social behavior and value systems worldwide.

So I guess you could say that this makes Al Gore their Prophet, and Inconvenient Half-Truths the holy tome of the Church of Global Whining.

The Great Global Warming Swindle

HEARING ON ‘WARMING OF PLANET’ CANCELED BECAUSE OF ICE STORM

The Subcommittee on Energy and Air Quality hearing scheduled for Wednesday, February 14, 2007, at 10:00 a.m. in room 2123 Rayburn House Office Building has been postponed due to inclement weather. The hearing is entitled “Climate Change: Are Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Human Activities Contributing to a Warming of the Planet?”

The hearing will be rescheduled to a date and time to be announced later.

DC WEATHER REPORT:

Wednesday: Freezing rain in the morning. Total ice accumulation between one half to three quarters of an inch. Brisk with highs in the mid 30s. North winds 10 to 15 mph…increasing to northwest 20 to 25 mph in the afternoon. Chance of precipitation near 100 percent.

Wednesday Night: Partly cloudy. Lows around 18. Northwest winds around 20 mph.

Cosmic rays blamed for global warming

Man-made climate change may be happening at a far slower rate than has been claimed, according to controversial new research.

Scientists say that cosmic rays from outer space play a far greater role in changing the Earth’s climate than global warming experts previously thought.

In a book, to be published this week, they claim that fluctuations in the number of cosmic rays hitting the atmosphere directly alter the amount of cloud covering the planet.

Meanwhile Some are speculating that Al may announce his intention to run for President in 2008 at the Oscars… Turning an already boring awards show into an event that a bottle of No Doze and three pots of coffee couldn’t cure.
