Audio: Al Gore screams about global-warming skeptics

posted at 9:00 pm on August 8, 2011 by Allahpundit

Via Fox Nation. Four years ago, when he won the Nobel, 71 percent said they believed that carbon emissions were causing global warming. Four years later, after a crushing recession, Climategate, and an epic failure at Copenhagen, only 44 percent say they believe it. Meanwhile, 69 percent say it’s likely that global-warming scientists have falsified climate research. What you’re hearing here, in other words, is the voice of a man who’s very, very frustrated, not merely because the science is being questioned but because the dream of a global agreement to limit industrial growth isn’t a priority in a world frantic for economic growth of any sort, industrial or otherwise. To that end, if you missed it in June, read Walter Russell Mead’s three-part series (one, two, and three) on Gore’s green travails. Part one deals with the eternal “do as I say, not as I do” problem; part three tries to contextualize him within the tradition of southern liberalism. Part two gets to the heart of it:

The dream that the menace of global warming will cause humanity to overcome its ancient divisions and unite in a grand global coalition is sophomoric. Rising CO2 levels will not cause the world’s governments to accept and enforce international policing of the most intimate details of their economic lives. If the menace of nuclear war can’t create world government, the menace of global warming won’t do it either…

Mr. Gore’s work up to and including his latest Rolling Stone essay has taken a demagogic rather than intellectual approach. His method of arguing is to trumpet the science of climate change and to make ad hominem arguments against its opponents. The science is clear, it is settled, and the opposition against it is funded by people with an economic stake in denial. I am right about the science and my opponents are a bunch of evil opportunists in it only for the money…

The green movement’s core tactic is not to “hide the decline” or otherwise to cook the books of science. Its core tactic to cloak a comically absurd, impossibly complex and obviously impractical political program in the authority of science. Let anyone attack the cretinous and rickety construct of policies, trade-offs, offsets and bribes by which the greens plan to govern the world economy in the twenty first century, and they attack you as an anti-science bigot.

To argue with these people about science is to miss the core point. Even if the science is exactly as Mr. Gore claims, his policies are still useless.

Could be. Or maybe if he rants just loudly and long enough, with lots of personal derision towards those who question this scheme, the skeptics will start to see the light. No? Content warning.

How far off base do you have to get before some one throws you out? This dolt needs to be shown for the charlatan he obviously is. If the oceans are raising, why would you buy an expensive home on the coast? He is trying, if he has not already, to commit fraud on the public.

Zelsdorf Ragshaft on August 8, 2011 at 9:08 PM

That’s because he can’t. Fat Al is not a scientist, he doesn’t even do a decent job of pretending to be a scientist. The man flunked out of two bible schools. He’s at the same intellectual level as little Bammie. There’s no ‘there’ there when you are talking about brains.

slickwillie2001 on August 8, 2011 at 9:09 PM

This is why he’ll never debate anyone on this topic.

He is sure sputtering it and full of it.

islandman78 on August 8, 2011 at 9:10 PM

Al Gore is a Fraud.

Here are some facts about oil.

Since the dawn of the oil age (1870) to today, the world has consumed about 1100 billion barrels of oil. This quantity is roughly 42 cubic miles of oil or 42 containers that measure 1 mile on each side.

If all that oil were spread over the entire surface of the Earth (like the atmosphere is for instance), it would be an oil film thinner than 4 sheets of copier paper. Copier paper is typically 0.004 inch thick, and the oil film would only be 0.014 inch. Take that sheet of paper laying on your desk and fold in half twice and place it between your fingers. Thinner than that. All the oil used in the last 140 plus years.

Now the atmosphere above weighs 14.7 pounds per square inch when you are at sea level (which 70% of the planet is covered with). A square inch of this oil film that is 0.014 in weighs at a fraction of a gram. You could burn the entire amount in an single minute and not see the effects an hour later. That is the myth of global warming due to oil consumption.

Last I heard, Gore listed his religion as Southern Baptist.
With language like that, he ought to switch to Jeremiah Wright’s church group.

Just think how close Al Gore came to being President.

Are Obama, Gore, Biden, Carter, Clinton B&H, Kerry, Dukakis, Mondale really the best leaders that the Democrats have to offer?

I have to wonder what the hell happens to Democratic politicans after they leave office.

John Edwards, Al Gore, Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter….

It is if the oval office or the senate drives them crazy.

Cant wait till Pelosi and Barney Frank and Obama leave office. The number of insane lefties will dramatically rise.

call it “Liberal warming”

Dodged another in 1999, when the Senate acquitted Clinton on impeachment charges. If Gore had become president then, he would easily have won in 2000.

I once spoke to David Schippers, impeachment counsel for the House Judiciary Committee, and author of “Sellout,” and Schippers agreed they were lucky they weren’t successful in removing Clinton, particularly in light of 9/11.

The Global Warming movement held that their theory was The Truth, and the purity and power of their Truth was such that it would change how people lived, how economies worked, and how the planet was run.

And yet everything they did undermined the truth of their own message:

They threw expensive conferences where attendees had to jet from all corners of the globe.

They lived lavish lifestyles with carbon footprints the size of Sasquatch.

They refused to accept proven ways to mitigate CO2 such as forestation and nuclear power.

They used ad hominem attacks and black lists to answer their scientific critic’s arguments.

They never even attempted to cleanse their own movement of incompetents, charlatans, cheats, and researchers who hid their analysis, models, and data from the public, and instead defended them and showered them with grant money and positions of prestige.

All this subterfuge, corruption and hypocrisy and they wonder why nobody wanted to remake their way of life and turn over the reigns of global power to the warmists on just their assertions of righteousness.
