Prince Albert, Hierophant of the Hypocrites

Yesterday the Goracle gave a major sermon, at which he proclaimed that we must focus our civilization on the objective of totally eliminating the use of the fossil fuels that make it run within 10 years or the earth will suffer irreparable harm from innocuous carbon emissions.

Gore's own Alliance for Climate Protection estimates that this unnecessary task could cost $3 trillion. But if liberals know anything, it's that taxpayers have plenty of money.

Ever the master of understatement, Gore shrieked:

The survival of the United States of America as we know it is at risk. The future of human civilization is at stake.

Americans for Prosperity reports on the event:

Of course, we saw plenty of hypocrisy — especially the fact that Gore didn't ride his bike or take public transportation to the event. He didn't even take his Prius! Instead, he brought a fleet of two Lincoln Town Cars and a Chevy Suburban SUV! Even worse, the driver of the Town Car that eventually whisked away Gore's wife and daughter left the engine idling and the AC cranking for 20 minutes before they finally left!
Check it out in our video from the scene:

Does the Nobel Committee grant prizes for flagrant hypocrisy?

Another example...our Governator wants to pass legislation that will tax the crap out of us to pay for "green" policies to make Cal-eee-fornia the world leader in combatting Global Warming.

Yet the putz takes a private jet to and from his home in Brentwood every day.

"The survival of the United States of America as we know it is at risk. The future of human civilization is at stake." - Al Gore

He's got that right. Carbon hysteria and dhimmitude need to be stopped soon.

God will humble Al Gore and his ilk. These pronouncements of imminent doom will not come to pass. I hope Al Gore and I live long enough to see the folly of his prophesies. God, himself will have the last laugh.

Only the LITTLE PEOPLE are the only ones who are assigned climate combat duty. The Elites at the top can do whatever they want when they want. Its the same way any Communist system works. Like in North Korea - the elites are literally FAT dining on the finest food while most of their people exist on meager rations doled out by Dear Leader. In NK few people other than the elites have cars - this is Al Bores vision of America.

So, if there were a Baptist minister who preached that gambling and adultery would damn you to hell... and he showed up at a casino with a hooker under each arm... would you suspect he doesn't really believe what he's preaching?

So would I.

Remember the family who Gore's daughter married into. Karina Gore-Schiff. Research Jacob Schiff and his dealings with Wall Streeet & WWII.

He said the same thing 10 years ago.

If some whacked out hippeh were to drown Al Gore in a vat of room temperature herbal tea, then I wouild complain.

All you neo-hippies who have posted on this site to threaten war and revolution against people who are not EXACTLY LIKE YOU, I would suggest that you start with Al Gore.

He's one of those RICH, WHITE MEN, you know.

Al Gore proves his environmental hypocrisy every day.
For instance, take this story I heard some months ago:
Last summer, only a week or so after the Goracle's gathering of dirty hippies and pretentious lefty musicians known as Live Earth, he attended his daughter's lavish wedding in Beverly Hills. There, at the reception, Gore and several other guests dined upon a threatened species of fish. That's like something the pig-man villain from 'Captain Planet' would do!
