Video: Global warming skeptics not unlike flat-earthers, muses Goracle

posted at 9:04 pm on March 27, 2008 by Allahpundit

Via JWF. Once again we’re treated to the special charm Gore brings in spreading the gospel of conservation to conservatives. I’ve said my piece on that subject more than once before so I won’t run through it again, but is it too much to ask him to at least spare us the condescension until his guys work out the kinks in their temperature models? Click the image to watch.

Update: I’ve imported the comments from the Headline item on this.

Wow…. I believe the Earth is flat?

News to me…

Nice try Al, but your reverse psychology and Jedi mind trick only work on the weak minded.

Tony737 on March 27, 2008 at 6:48 PM

I just wish someone would challenge Obamessiah or Her Thighness that if elected would they investigate and prosecute those who fed the global warming hysteria to drive up the prices of food and fuel with the same intensity they go after oil companies for “gouging”.

I’d also be interested in knowing if either administration would vigorously prosecute carbon credit scams.

…And Al Gore is not unlike a turd-in-an-outhouse.

NTWR on March 27, 2008 at 6:52 PM

The earth stopped warming somewhere between 1998 and 2002 according to the IPCC - who could not be more unhappy needless to say.

Apparently that giant fusion reaction which provides all the heat on earth (other than the core) may be a factor in the heating and cooling cycles we experience. Crazy talk, I know.

Beagle on March 27, 2008 at 7:03 PM

Global Warming? Oh, that’s different.

I thought you said “GoreBull Warning.”

Al Gore has done more damage to the world not being the president than Boosh. Imagine the damage he would have done if he was elected or was successful at stealing the presidency.

Wade on March 27, 2008 at 7:19 PM

I don’t believe the Earth is flat, but I do believe Mr Gore invented the internet. I do, I do, I do believe.

jgapinoy on March 27, 2008 at 7:23 PM

Yeah, well, The Goracle may have to start looking for new work if news gets out of the new climate data.

Maybe but Global Warming believers are like those folks who believe those “Nigerian” 419 emails. Just think of AlGore as the barrister.

Global warming skeptics proponents not unlike flat-earthers.

I’m waiting for someone to start a class action suit against Gore.

INC on March 27, 2008 at 7:30 PM

If you’re not already familiar with Anthony Watts, he has lots of items at Watts Up With That? and Steve McIntyre at Climate Audit is also good.

From Watts Up With That? (my emphasis)

Evidence of a Significant Solar Imprint in Annual Globally Averaged Temperature Trends – Part 1 Part 2 is still to come.

…There is a growing body of literature pointing to bidecadal periodicity in climate records that point to a solar origin. See, for instance, Rasporov, et al, (2004). A 65-70 year climate cycle may simply be a terrestrial driven harmonic of bidecadal rhythms that are solar in origin.

In terms of the underlying rates of change, the warming of the late 20th century appears to be no more

INC on March 27, 2008 at 7:31 PM

Al Gore not unlike Charles Dawson.

INC on March 27, 2008 at 7:38 PM

And the High Goracle spoke all these words, saying: I am the Goracle thy Oracle.

ONE: You shall have no other Oracles before Me.

TWO: You shall not make for yourself any carbon images–any likeness of anything carbon that is in heaven above, or of anything carbon that is in the earth beneath, or anything carbon that is in the water under the earth.

THREE: You shall not ever take the name of the Goracle your Oracle in vain.

FOUR: Remember my birthday, and keep it carbon free unless you have credits that you bought from me.

FIVE: Honor Me instead of your father and your mother especially if they don’t believe in global warming.

SIX: You shall not ever malign Me or else you be heretics.

SEVEN: You shall not commit adultery with my wife, but I can with your wife.

EIGHT: You shall not ever steal my carbon credits.

NINE: You shall not raise any challenges to My most holy doctrine of global warming.

TEN: You shall not covet any of My mansions; you shall not covet My private jets, nor My SUV’s, nor My pizza, nor My Krispe Kreame donuts, nor My Biggie Fries, nor My hot fudge sundaes.

MB4 on March 27, 2008 at 7:40 PM

The leader of the idiot party is back. And just in time for warmer summer temperatures. Duh.

bluestater on March 27, 2008 at 7:58 PM

Gore responds: “I think that those people are in such a tiny, tiny minority now with their point of view…”

So Al Gore believes that not just a minority; or even a tiny minority, but a tiny tiny minority of people believe that the world won’t end in precisely 20-200 years unless we return to a Medieval technology base. And, mind you, he considers THOSE people to be the “kooks” of the world he inhabits.

But who’s to say he’s wrong about any of that? And why should we take any of this personally?

I mean, in all these questions about Global Warming, has anyone ever asked him WHICH planet earth he’s talking about? ‘Cause I’m pretty sure it’s not this one.

And now following in the tradition of other great men such as Jimmy Carter and Yasir Arafat, he is the proud recipient of a Nobel Prize!!!

CarbonMan, strange visitor from an alternate reality who came to Earth with claims and scary predictions far beyond those of mortal men, disguised as Fat Albert, and now joined by other members of the Royal GreenLeague such as BioFuelHummerMan, EcoCleaningWoman and JuanTheHeatMcSurgo, they all fight a never ending battle for Science-fiction, hypocrisy and the Hollywood way!

Why don’t they challenge to debate a real expert?

One site (can’t remember the name) has been challenging Algore to a debate with real scientists for a while now.

Natcherly, no word from the Goracle.

Rush said last year that Algore wouldn’t run for President because he was afraid to debate ‘global warming’. Though Lord knows he’d have no trouble with John McCain, who seems to have bought into the hoax.

A quote from the link I pasted above:

“It’s not only that it’s not discussed. We never hear it, do we? Whenever there’s any sort of weather event that can be linked into the global warming orthodoxy, it’s put on the front page. But a fact like that, which is that global warming stopped a decade ago, is virtually never reported, which is extraordinary.”

Priceless.

flipflop on March 27, 2008 at 9:14 PM

How about a more accurate analogy?

GoreBull Warning enthusiasts are far more successful than medieval alchemists. The alchemists never found a way to turn lead into gold — but these frauds have found a way to empty the taxpayers pockets, and fill their own, with government research grants.

My collie says:

A pox on them.

Gee. Stahl really did her homework. You know, the Vice President and “others.” She could have mentioned the Congressional Report where 400 scientists disputed man-made global warming or at the very least that it’s WAY over-hyped as a problem. We haven’t seen the whole piece yet, but this little snippet doesn’t instill confidence that it will be a balanced report.

Grow Fins on March 27, 2008 at 9:23 PM

I honestly think historians looking back a few centuries from now are going to be fascinated by the Global Warming Hoax.

It’s not that large populations haven’t fallen for bad science and silly snakeoil propaganda before – its happened routinely – but this has to be the first time I highly technologically advanced society has so willfully ignored its own science.

I don’t know what it all means. Maybe its all a good thing, and this is the last gasp of irrational stupidity. Or maybe its a harbinger of a disastrous future where political expediency trumps basic science.

Whatever. All I know is sociologists and psychologists and historians in the year 2525 (if we’re still alive) … will just be fascinated.

It’s all so weirdly wacky.

The best part is that the VERY SAME people who denounce religion – especially creationism – because they insist on scientific evidence … are now swallowing the Kool-Aid and insisting we don’t ask scientific questions.

How do they do that, exactly? Doesn’t the irony give them headaches?

Professor Blather on March 27, 2008 at 9:24 PM

Did Bore mention his 2007-8 heating bill for his goddamn mansion?

It’s snowing outside here in Michigan.

Bore looks a little tan, where the hell did HE spend winter? Somewhere warm? Maybe Al wants his little vacation palces to be just right for Al.

I can picture him taking two hours to adjust his chaise lounge just to his liking…

Getting up, sitting down, fidgeting, getting up, sitting down, fidgeting, then smiling contentedly…then fidgeting, getting up, adjusting, sitting down, sighing, fidgeting, getting up, stamping his feet, shuffling, getting a drink of water, sighing, sitting down, fidgeting, getting up…

Exactly…the data from Aqua show that temperatures have been flat since 2000, and have declined since 1998. Given that CO2 levels have increased substantially over the same period, it puts a bit of a kink in the computational models, doesn’t it?

By the way…has Al profited AT ALL from his ponderous pushing of this ridiculous idea?

How about that ditzy Dr. Heidi Cullen, the little scientist who wanted to remove accreditations from meteorologists who didn’t agree with her? Did she profit?

Might want to think your argument through a little bit better.

benrand on March 27, 2008 at 9:31 PM

It might help if the reporter, er excuse me journalist, knew a little bit about the subject before throwing puff balls. Here is a question she could have asked him. Why do all of the past warming cycles have an increase in CO2 in the atmosphere after the warm period? This CO2, “Greenhouse gas” Global warming caused by humans nonsense, is agenda driven. He should go to China and India and try to sell his silly notion. They would laugh him out of their country.

sheriff246 on March 27, 2008 at 9:38 PM

Leadership by example has always far and away been the best form of leadership.

As usual I think extremists on both sides of the arguement are usually the most wrong.

However, if I believed carbon emissions would end the world, I wouldn’t spend my time producing more carbon emissions than a rural city somewhere out in the middle of nowhere.

Al Gore uses energy and pollutes 24x7x365 like there is no tomorrow and yet he lectures Joe and Sally Six pack about energy consumption. The man has got to be the worlds biggest hypocrite. I do not care how many “carbon credits” the man buys, if everyone guzzled like he did, the oceans would rise 30 feet.

He owns multiple SUVs and flies around on private jets, just like his friends in the global-warming movement, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Laurie David, producer of An Inconvenient truth. No hypocrisy here, say those committed environmentalists. They’ve bought “carbon offsets”, such as paying for tress to be planted in Africa to magically erase the pollution they generate here in the U.S. What a joke.

Like prostitute visiting preachers lecturing their flock against sin, Gore and his Hollywood sycophants find it far easier to scold the rest of us for our piggish energy consumption than to put a crimp in their own lavish lifestyles. So spare us the sanctimony, Mr. Gore: He who lives in a massive, electricity-devouring house should not be throwing stones.

Of course its all a pile of fetid dingos kidneys, but if I strain myself to look at their situation through their eyes……how the hell do all these nitwits extricate themselves from their untenable position? Seriously. They have incoherently blundered into an absurdly quasi-religious luddite stupor, and have so cemented their absolute endorsement of the cult, that they have no room to manoeuver.

The only options are (a) carry on until the wheels fall off in classic keystone cops fashion, or (b) suffer a brooder house full of egg-on-face.

In the meantime, many scientists – acutely aware that the nature of their positions is far more perilous than a hollywood nitwits fashionable cause du jour – are starting to turn with the actual scientific tide.

Gore and his window-licking amoeba-clan are screwed.

Jaibones on March 27, 2008 at 10:22 PM

Why can’t the global warmists admit that they are part of a religion? Their religion has a human at the top position, of course, just like all other humanist religions, but their faith in things unproven and unseen sounds very much like dogma to me. Now, if somebody does not agree with them, they must be flat-earth believers? Give me a break.

Truly, can these folks be any more egotistical? We cannot predict the weather three days out, and huddle in fear when a hurricane approaches. It is the height of hubris to believe we control the weather, when any child can tell you the opposite is true.

As a professional geologist, I can say with authority that Gore is a lying bastard who is deeply involved in the multibillion-dollar carbon credit shakedown scam.

Follow the money….

He buys extra carbon credits before the massage..
