Read the craziness here


From The New York Times's Nicholas Kristof:

I ran into Al Gore at a climate/energy conference this month, and he vibrates with passion about this issue -- recognizing that we should confront mortal threats even when they don't emanate from Al Qaeda.

"We are now treating the Earth's atmosphere as an open sewer," he said, and (perhaps because my teenage son was beside me) he encouraged young people to engage in peaceful protests to block major new carbon sources.

"I can't understand why there aren't rings of young people blocking bulldozers," Mr. Gore said, "and preventing them from constructing coal-fired power plants."

Say it, Al! But it's not just young people who need to do it -- everyone needs to join in, starting with you. Shutting down coal plants, blockading palm-oil importers like Imperium Renewables and other rainforest destroyers, and stopping work at oil refineries could move the climate debate beyond just personal action and put the spotlight squarely on the big polluters who are the real culprits behind the problem.

This could be Al Gore's Gandhi moment (especially appropriate for a Nobel Peace Prize nominee). It would be great if you (in conjunction with say, Greenpeace, Rainforest Action Network, and other civil disobedience-oriented environmental groups) announced a day of civil disobedience to confront polluters -- and were the first one to get arrested. You'll find thousands of people, myself included, to back you up.

If you're interested in being one of those people, click here to send Al Gore a fax letting him know you're ready to participate in civil disobedience on behalf of the planet.



When faced with new discoveries (1930s were actually hotter than the 1990s) strike back with emotion.

Typical Socialist playbook

The former Vice-President of the USA is calling for Civil Disobedience??

Is Al Gore, Jr., really urging people to BREAK THE LAW??!!!

Read the book "State of Fear" by Michael Crichton. Al Gore is perpetuating
the level of hysteria and fear. And profitting quite nicely from it I might add.

Maybe because they like video games and air conditioning.

Gore and people like him act like companies build power plants for the hell of it. They are being built because there is a demand for electricity and environmental rules make nuclear plants nearly impossible to build.

But, imagine what the hippies would do if they got told a city like New York or Los Angeles would have to do without any electricity for a summer because of Al Gore. He would get lynched.

And this from a man who burns more fossil fuels in a day than I do in a year. Maybe the protestors should blockade Al Gore’s private jets or his SUV motorcades. Wonder how he would take that?

Major New Theory Proposed to Explain Global Warming
Satellite imagery of El Nino currents in 2006 (Source: NASA)
Carbon-dioxide out; "synchronized chaos" in

"Arctic Ocean Getting Warm; Seals Vanish and Icebergs Melt" --Washington Post headline, November 2, 1922.

If there was any doubt that fear-mongering has long been cherished by the media, the above headline should put the question to bed. But that 80-year old news story also illustrates two of the great problems for the global warming theory -- its inability to explain sudden climate shifts in the Earth's past, and to explain why the Northern and Southern Hemispheres are so unequally affected by warming.

A team of mathematicians have come forth with a startling new theory that solves both these problems. Led by Dr. Anastasios Tsonis, their model says the known cycles of the Earth's oceans -- the Pacific Decadal Oscillation, the North Atlantic Oscillation, El Nino (Southern Oscillation) and the North Pacific Oscillation -- all tend to try to synchronize with each other.

The theory is based on a branch of mathematics known as Sychronized Chaos. The math predicts the degree of coupling to increase over time, causing the solution to "bifurcate," or split. Then, the synchronization vanishes. The result is a climate shift.

Eventually the cycles begin to sync up again, causing a repeating pattern of warming and cooling, along with sudden changes in the frequency and strength of El Nino events.

Better yet, their theory has predictive power. The model predicts past shifts in the year 1913 (explaining the strong warming of the 20s and 30s), 1942 (resolving the post-WW2 cooling trend) and 1978 (covering our current warming). The model predicts another shift to occur around the year 2033. Most shocking of all is their prediction for the year 2100 to be slightly cooler than present day, despite the assumption of a doubling of atmospheric CO2 levels. Eye-popping indeed.

Is carbon-dioxide really so ineffective at warming? A new study by Belgium's Royal Meteorological Institute seems to think so. Its conclusion is that, while CO2 does have some effect, that "it can never play the decisive role attributed to it" in global warming, and that its effects have been grossly overstated.

+1

All these hippies love their electricity but are too stupid to relize there are things called wires, and they go from these power plants to their houses and coffee shops so they can sit around all day bitching (while sitting in a circle indian style) about how evil power plants are.

Or the numerous SUV's I see a week with "no war for oil" stickers...hehe War is was brought you that oil. Realistically GW1 was partially about oil, and stabilizing the area so the flow could continue. We can come up with a 500k man coalition for that but when over a million Hutu and Tutsies die in Rwanda Gores father (Clinton) sat there with his thumb up his ass and his dick in Monica.

Stupid liberals...

I would like to see Gore and Family go without electricity for a month. Make it a reality TV show called "Practice What You Preach".

Well, I sorta agree with the former Vice President on the point about using the kids to form rings around bulldozers that are building coal fired power plants.

I think where we might disagree is that I would use them to stop them from working on coal fired plants so that we could START them on nuke plants instead.

Well, yes there are certainly morons in this world but I think even more so it shows that this movement is not about the environment but about politics, more specifically about attacking capitalism through the excuse of caring about the environment. They really don't give a rat's ass about the environment, it is simply expedient to attack capitalism this way because socialism and communism had been thoroughly discredited, so they had to find another angle.

This just in!!!

Scientists discover very large, flaming, hot, orb shaped object in the center of our solar system. They speculate that it could be the source of warming on earth!

Wonder what this thing could be? I say we destroy it before it causes more global warming!

Oh, and BAN dihydrogen monoxide while they're at it!!!

The previews could show Gore sitting in his living room whining about how his candles are emitting carbon into the air since he doesn't have electric light any more, him taking the bus to work (does he even have a job?) instead of a limo or SUV caravan, him hitch-hiking to get to events across the country instead of taking his plane, him giving CPR to a dead houseplant, etc.
