An Inconvenient Asshole

The following is an Opinion, and more importantly, it is MY opinion, and since it is my blog I can say anything I want.
If you choose to rebut this opinion, just feel free to start your own blog...
But I won't publish your opinion here. If you don't like it, too damn bad.
Take your dolly and go play elsewhere.

And by the way, sorry about the profanity.

There's a file on my desktop called "FuckAlGore.txt".

I had planned and half-written a scathing link-filled post with details info on why Al Gore and his family are such duplicitous hypocrites. After working on it for hours, I have abandon the effort. He's not worth it, and it would be a disservice to Constant Readers.

But I do want to give you the gist of the thing, because this whole concept of man-induced global climate change catastrophe theory does piss me off.
Let me give you a few facts and links that you can ignore and then you can go on to read your favorite web comics or go look at soft-core porn featuring Jennifer Love Hewitt.

Obligatory attention-getting picture.
(Has nothing to do with this content of the post, but it is needed for the people who read this blog for the pictures.)

I'll try to keep it short. I promise.

Ok, here we go...

I keep getting assailed about Global Warming and the US non-ratification of the Kyoto Protocols... It's like the entire world believes there is this huge pipe that runs from America up to the Arctic Circle and is spewing out steaming hot carbon dioxide, melting the whole place and killing all the polar bears.
So how to explain the increase in the polar bear population from 5,000 in 1950 to 25,000 today, as documented by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service? The ecozealots are noticeably quiet. Could it be that the facts don't fit with their campaign of exaggerations, half-truths and outright lies?
(BTW- Australia didn't ratify the KP either... I guess their pipe is heading to Antarctica and killing all the penguins.)

At the same time I'm getting lots of "Al Gore is a god!" hogwash thrown at me... Seems he's a real hero for alerting everyone to the menace of man-induced global warming.

Constant Readers, Listen to your Uncle Jay, nothing could be further from the truth.

Al & Tipper Gore are loudmouth, publicity-hungry, money grubbing political whores.

Do a little Google searching and find out what kind of flip-floppery went on in 1985 and 1988 when Al & Tipper took on the Music Industry with the PMRC- An attempt at the worst kind of censorship- the government evaluating and rating music and lyrics...
In 1988 the Gores tried to pretend they had no role in the whole thing when they went to Hollywood looking for money to fund Al's brief run at the Presidency.
That's not just a waffel- that's pure pandering to secure funding.

We all know he wound up playing 2nd fiddle to Bill "The Wandering Penis" Clinton in '92 & '96, and all the moonbat nutjobs think he got the shaft from the Supreme Court in 2000, bemoaning the fact he won the popular vote and got screwed by the electoral college.
(That's the reason for the Electoral College, people. If it didn't exist, candidates would only campaign in New York and California and one or two other population centers and all the representative decisions would be made by idiots and Yankees. Knock off all the bitching, losers. Back to topic...)

Now Al has decided to save the world from Global Warming and he would like the world to believe that the entire solution is to throw money at the problem*...
Oh goodie.

So he narrates a piece of speculative fiction called "An Inconvenient Truth" and gets an Oscar and a Nobel Peace Prize... Which to me, amounts about as much bullshit as the Grammy does for the Dixie Chicks. That was more a payoff from the Entertainment Industry for pandering to an international audience and getting their asses handed to them back home for being stupid on a foreign stage.

Al "The Sky Is Falling" Gore and the IPCC (International Panel on Climate Change) got the Nobel Prize jointly... since they are "sharing" the prize, you might think they were singing from the same hymnbook.
Nope. Sorry, they are not in synch at all.

Al is painting a picture of global catastrophe... My favorite, being a Floridian, is the horseshit about the 20' rise in global seal level in the next 100 years.
He ignores the findings of his Nobel co-winners, who conclude that sea levels will rise only 6 inches to two feet over this century, with their absolute worst expectation being about one foot. That's similar to what the world experienced over the past 150 years.

Likewise, Gore agonizes over the accelerated melting of ice in Greenland and what it means for the planet, but overlooks the IPCC's conclusion that, if sustained, the current rate of melting would add just 3 inches to the sea-level rise by the end of the century. Gore also takes no notice of research showing that Greenland's temperatures were higher in 1941 than they are today. There are also navigational charts (Piri Reis and other Portolan Charts) drawn in the 1500's that show an accurate representation of the north coast of Greenland, indicating that during the end of the 1400's and early 1500's that area was free of ice.

The politician-asshole-moviemaker loses sleep over a predicted rise in heat-related deaths. There's another side of the story that's inconvenient for him to mention: rising temperatures will reduce the number of cold spells, which are a much bigger killer than heat. The best study shows that by 2050, heat will claim 400,000 more lives, but 1.8 million fewer will die because of cold. Indeed, according to the first complete survey of the economic effects of climate change for the world, global warming will actually save lives.

This idiot has sounded the alarm and if you swallow the load of bullshit he's feeding you, it makes him look like a fucking hero.
Don't you believe it.
I've had several people lauding him, saying he ought to be the next President...None of these people were voting Americans, and their opinions come from the international media. They are not in touch with reality. Their view of reality is from the Left-centric news and watching a fucking movie. Pathetic.

Go over to Junk Science and look at the data and the reasons that "An Inconvenient Truth" is a steaming pile of carbon-dioxide emitting camel shit. While Al "Bullshit Artist" Gore is getting accolades from his Hollywood friends (and previous enemies) for alerting mankind to the fact that the weather changes from time to time, REAL issues continue to plague mankind...
Issues that are unarguably more serious than Al's self-proclaimed doomsday scenario.
I really like John Stossel's video piece from 20/20 debating the concepts of "An Inconvenient Truth".

Gore calls on world leaders to cut CO2 emissions, yet there are other policy changes and programs that would go much further to improve life for more people on the planet.
For instance:
Over the next hundred years, developing nations will be increasingly dependent on food imports from developed countries.
This is not a result of global warming, but a consequence of more people and less arable land in the developing world, and in my not-so-humble opinion, a by-product of US (mostly Democratic) efforts to throw money and aid at every third-world shithole, encouraging them to breed like little bunnies without actually improving their self-sufficiency... because we will continue to send food and money to them regardless.

The number of hungry mouths to feed depends much less on climate than on demographics
and income and/or foreign aid.
Extremely expensive cuts in carbon emissions (a la the Kyoto Protocols) could mean more malnourished people. If our goal is to fight malnutrition, policies like getting nutrients to those who need them are 5,000 times more effective at saving lives than spending billions of dollars cutting carbon emissions.

Likewise, global warming will probably slightly increase malaria, but CO2 reductions
will be far less effective at fighting this disease than mosquito nets and medication, which can cheaply save 850,000 lives every year. By contrast, the expensive Kyoto Protocol will prevent just 1,400 deaths from malaria each year. Are you doing the math here, kids?
You have to fight the *right* battle, not just the one that sounds best in a 30 second sound bite on the news and makes you look like the savior of the planet.

While we worry about the far-off and most likely imaginary effects of mankind-induced climate change, we do nothing to deal with real, immediate issues facing the planet today.
This year, malnutrition will kill almost 4 million people. Better start making that movie, Al-hole.
About 3 million lives will be lost to HIV/AIDS, and 2 1/2 million people will die because of indoor and outdoor air pollution. A lack of micro-nutrients and clean drinking water will claim 2 million lives each.
Better start making those movies... Or is the science too real?
Can't dress up the computer models to find a way to show that corporate America is responsible for these problems?

Look, don't you think it would be a good idea to first tackle the problems with the best solutions, doing the most good throughout the century? If we focus on solving today's problems, we will leave communities strengthened, national economies stronger, and infrastructures more robust. This is known as "results-oriented problem solving"...
The problem is that Democrats think that any problem can be solved by throwing money at it. Preferably someone else's money. Republican/Conservative money if possible.

Committing to massive cuts in carbon emissions will leave future generations poorer and less able to adapt to challenges.
Some people think Al "Do as I say, not as I do" Gore has passion for his cause and is doing everything in his power to stop global warming.
Sorry, 'taint true.
He would have us believe that everyone on the planet should step up and do their part. Unfortunately, he also thinks it shouldn't apply to him...
His house in Nashville has a $3,000 a month electric bill... He jets about on private planes when he ought to be riding mass transit and thinks that purchased "Carbon Credits", basically purchasing the right emit more CO2, because someone else did the actual sacrifice of resources, is appropriate.
Sorry. I'm not buying it.
You're either doing your part, or you're fucking it up. No middle ground, no buying your way out of the issue.
Oh, and one more thing...Gore buys his carbon off-sets from himself-- from Generation Investment Management LLP, "an independent, private, owner-managed partnership established in 2004 with offices in London and Washington, D.C." of which he is both chairman and founding partner.
Isn't THAT interesting?

Well... Sorry.
This was as short as I could make it. Sorry about all the yelling.

The next motherfucker in a bar who gives me shit about the US role in the global warming fight is going to get an extra-large ground-glass-and-fish-hook enema. Right there in the bar. I am tired tired tired of these motherfuckers.
Asked and answered, you Honor.

TBG, off my soapbox, still suffering from jetlag-

* BTW if you really want to get a chuckle, read this. And this.

Oh, Uncky Jay...that's a lot of words that will ultimately mean nothing. The government-created superviruses will kill us all - or turn us into brain-eating zombies - well before the big climate change happens. ;)

Speaking of malnutrition - what charity do I help out in order to get that JLH girl a sammich?

While visiting friends recently, they put on the video of An Inconvenient Truth so we had to watch to be polite. Besides, you know what they say about knowing the enemy. Anyway ...

The Convenient Inconsistencies floored me! Am I the ONLY one who saw where he contradicted himself more than once??? Are people such SHEEP that they hang on every lie he tells???

Then I fell asleep. Time better spent, I say.

Who the heck do we think we are that we have THAT much effect on this planet? OR that we can change any of it?

All of this doom and gloom is simply a planetary cycle. The human race may not survive it but it is due to nothing more than the fact that the planet is a living, breathing thing and, as such, is in constant flux.

I guess this is a long way of saying I agree with you ...

Yes, Shaniqua, Umbrella Corp is going to buy all corporate entities and move all of us to Raccoon City.

I can't wait!

And if you are really interested in helping that poor starving waif, please make a (large) check out to "United Nations Charitable Legacy Enabling Jennifer's Appetite Yearnings" (Just the initials will suffice if you run out of room on the payee line of your check) and slip it under my door. I'll take care of the rest.

take care-

Thanks, Annie- hope all is well in SC.

BTW, don't you people sleep?

At least I have an excuse for being awake all hours of the night...

No idea what the topic was. Thanks for the picture!

C'mon, Jay, tell us what you really think!

While Mr. Gore gets all the credit, President Bush is walking the walk. His ranch in Crawford is a model of energy and resource conservation.

And Canada wants out of Kyoto and into the Group of 7 (which includes China, the US, India, Australia, Indonesia(?), and two other Asian countries) accord negotiated by Pres. Bush. This accord includes sharing green technology.
