Al Gore Gets Desperate in Davos
Never mind that instead of the promised onslaught of monster hurricanes, the USA has been hit by none at all in the last two years, so that "experts" have been reduced to bleating that actually, global warming prevents hurricanes.
Never mind that even in politically correct Britain, his sacred video text A Convenient Lie can only be presented in schools with a disclaimer listing a few of its most blatant falsehoods.
Never mind the hundreds of scientists who have come forward to denounce the pernicious global warming hoax.
Never mind that global average temperatures have not risen since the 1990s.
Never mind that scientists are predicting that if there's any climate change coming, it will unfortunately be a change for the cooler.
Despite all this, Al Gore is reacting to the wheels coming off his phony climate change crisis in the only way he knows how: by ratcheting up the hysterical rhetoric still further. A report from Davos, Switzerland, where the liberal elite arrive by private jet to ski and bloviate:
New evidence shows "the climate crisis is significantly worse and unfolding more rapidly than those on the pessimistic side of the IPCC projections had warned us," the former US vice president and climate campaigner told delegates at the annual World Economic Forum in Davos.
There are now forecasts that the North Pole ice cap may disappear entirely during summer months in as little as five years, Gore said.
"This is a planetary emergency. There has never been anything remotely like it in the entire history of human civilisation. We are putting at risk all of human civilisation," he added.
Understatement was never Prince Albert's forte.
Jerome Schmitt offers a mathematical analysis of the likelihood of the ice caps melting anytime within your grandchildren's lifetime. To summarize his findings: ain't gonna happen.
Anyone who thought the Goracle would give up on the exhausted global warming farce and just go away doesn't remember his reaction to losing the election in 2000.
On tips from Charles and Byron.

Watching Gore and friends ratchet up the rhetoric as the wheels spin off the global warming hoax is very entertaining. What's needed now is a team of people who write to Gore et. al. and place comments on blogs, just to egg them on and get them to take their hysteria to a whole new level, e.g.:
- "I guess global warming might be real, but so far, even if it's real, it just doesn't sound that serious."
- "I can live with the moderately warmer climate we keep hearing about. I mean, we're talking about a 1/10th of a degree over the next 20 years, right? It doesn't sound that bad. I wonder if something could happen that would be far more terrible than anything we've heard so far. What would it look like?"
- "Warm weather sounds OK to me. But I'm concerned that it might lead to the death of everything on the planet. Does anyone know more about this?"
- "Some friends told me that my home state of California will NOT disappear under the ocean in the next 10 years. But they are Republicans, and not to be trusted. Can anyone tell me what is really going to happen to California if we don't solve global warming by April?"

There are two fascinating conceits about the Global Warming Alarmists.
1. The Earth has one perfect ideal temperature, and even a tiny variation from this one perfect ideal temperature will have catastrophic consequences.
2. This one perfect ideal temperature occurred during the youth of the baby-boom generation.

He mentions taxing the US to prevent the melting of the North Pole and saving the world's poor from poverty???

the earth is a self regulating machine.to assume human existence has such a limited effect that we cannot change the environment we live in is ignorant.going back to 1990 mean absolutely nothing
human being modern existence has only occurred for a fraction of the time the earth has been.

"2. This one perfect ideal temperature occurred during the youth of the baby-boom generation."
Actually, V the K, the baby boomers believe that the one perfect ideal Everything occurred during the youth of the baby-boom generation.
And every event that's subsequently taken place in history should and will be measured against the period of their youth, when everything was perfect and things were how they should be forever.
In that conceit, they truly demonstrate how they are so very, very different, unique and special from all the old people who came before them. Those previous curmudgeony generations before the boomers stodgily believed everything was perfect when they were young, and that the new young people should just do what they did, because everything's so screwed up these days...
So when do the Boomers just admit at last that they're a bunch of old timers with stale ideas that have already been page-turned by history?
(should be interesting when the boomers hit 80 or so...crackling old voice "Kids these days...they just don't listen. I keeps tellin' 'em when you're doing acid with your gay lover on a commune and haven't showered in two weeks...Baa! The kids don't care. They have no manners! Baa")

Al Gore is the L Ron Hubbard of the 21st Century. The Church of Climatology is taking over where the Church of Scientology left off. Both are based on science fiction, both brutally attack those who criticize them, and both exist primarily to make money for their founders, in L. Ron Gore's case, through carbon off-sets.

How blatantly can he bleat? This Clintonian Gorebasm in Davos sure smells like a setup pointing toward November to me.
For some time now I've been predicting that somehow Algore will find a way to ride to the Beltway on a magnificent steed to claim the White House bedecked in shining armor and murmuring childish rants about his carbon credits. Stay tuned...

Hello. I am hurricane blogger and a skeptic about anthropogenic global warming, but it does our side of the argument no good when people get the facts wrong. Humberto went ashore as a hurricane in SE Texas on the night of September 12, 2007. Check information from National Hurricane Center: http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/2007/HUMBERTO.shtml

Oh yes, Humberto, I almost forgot about him.
Democratic Senator from Minnesota. They named a crappy stadium after him.
Mr.Sullivan, no offense, but Al Gore told us that Indiana would be beach front property with Palm trees, and you cite Humberto.
I guess you're right, Humberto was caused by global warming and George Bush. Thanks for clearing up the facts.
