(AP) - Former vice president Al Gore used
the success of his documentary, "An Inconvenient Truth" to expand his efforts to
educate people about global warming and to tell a few jokes.
(ap) - "Educate"?... That's rich. This from the "Do
as I say, not as I do" Left in Washington and Hollywood. From the looks of
Algore Junior last night, he needs to put down the bottle of Beefeater and get
on a bicycle himself! The problem with Algore, the AP and the Left in general,
is that they are being selective when presenting "evidence" about "global
warming", and that's neither complete nor honest Science. You will not hear them
speak about the warming on Mars, assumed to be the product of the Sun, and not
American Emissions of "Green House Gases" as every other ill in man's existence
is. They will not discuss the "Heat Island Affect", and they certainly don't
want to acknowledge the rate of increase in temperature from 1900 to 1950, as it
compares with 1950 to 2000. Hell, last night we were reminded of "Katrina"
again, as if the last historically MILD hurricane season, last season, never
happened, or the record cold and snow we are seeing currently isn't happening.
No, this will be the last you see of Algore Junior until the predictably hot
days of Summer. He kicks off his "Ignorate a New Generation Tour" in July... I
wonder why? I have a question for Algorites from George Will... Why did the
Vikings stop farming in Greenland? - tha malcontent)
The film turned Gore's road show about climate change into a film that won
Academy Awards for best documentary and best song.
(Didn't "road shows" of old have a lot of "snake oil
salesmen"?... As for the "Best Song"... PAH-LEEEEASE... That was lame even by
her "standards". Not only was that a token nomination, it was a abjectly
political "win" for "her". - tha malcontent)
Gore also teased a bit Sunday night about his plans to possibly make another
presidential run, although backstage, he said he was not a candidate.
(I smell the bitterness of the 2000 (If only Algore
carried his own home state) loss coming up... - tha malcontent)
The win was a triumph for Gore, who has kept a sense of humor about the 2000
election, where he won the popular vote, but lost the election to George W.
(Ah... There it is. He lost, AP... Get over it. By
the way, the AP was all too happy to call the Election for Algore before the
Conservative panhandle of Florida was finished voting, and then after most
honest outlets had called the election for (43) after the recounts, the AP held
out hope for their Candidate, and to this day remind "the people" regularly that
Algore got more "popular votes"... As if that matters AT ALL. - tha malcontent)
"My fellow Americans," Gore said Sunday. "People all over the world, we need to
solve the climate crisis. It's not a political issue, it's a moral issue. We
have everything we need to get started with the possible will to act. That's a
renewable resource. Let's renew it."
(Maybe Algore and the rest of the
Washington/Hollywood Left could lead by example... Yeah, right. - tha
Earlier in the evening, Gore and Leonardo DiCaprio took the stage to unveil a
series of efforts the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences took to make
this year's awards more environmentally friendly.
(Get this in your minds... "Senator DiCaprio"...
Yep, it will happen. - tha malcontent)
Pressed by DiCaprio about any other major announcement he might like to make,
the former vice president pulled out a statement.
"My fellow Americans, I'm going to take this opportunity right here and now, to
formally announce my intentions to ..." Gore said before the orchestra broke in
and he walked off, laughing arm-in-arm with DiCaprio.
("Arm-in-arm"... Sure this isn't political, it's
"moral"... So now if we question, or add evidence to the debate, we are being
"political" and "immoral"?... Classic Stalinistic tactics, if I've ever seen
them! - tha malcontent)
Backstage, Gore put speculation to rest, saying "I do not have plans to become a
candidate for office again."
(It's too bad, because I would enjoy watching him
run again... And so would the AP, but for entirely different reasons. The AP
would like to get him into that Office they tried so hard to back in 2000, and
lament his absence from daily, as they are again in this piece of Newspeak tripe
masquerading as "news". - tha malcontent)
Instead, Gore said he was dedicating all his efforts to pressuring governments
to act on climate-crisis issues.
("Pressuring governments"... Yeah, how about a
little honesty here. Algore is only about punishing the US on this issue and his
actions reflect that. Kyoto punishes the US and let's off much larger populace
countries that are in need of some standards, and definitely will be as they
continue to progress. China and India come to mind. - tha malcontent)
"It is the overriding world challenge of our time," Gore said.
(Yeah, and back on the first Earth Day, and for
years after, a "New Ice Age" was the "overriding world challenge"... Some of
Algore's "colleagues" were claiming that if we didn't do something to stop
"global cooling", that we could be gone in 15 years. Well, as it happened, we
weren't gone by 1985... 1990... 1995... 2000... 2005... And now the thing that
will end Mankind as we know it, just thirty-some years later is the exact
opposite of what it was then. Maybe if we over-regulate and tax ourselves here
in America, the Sun will be pleased and it will stop having an affect on us and
Mars at the same time... It could be a two-for-one! Ask yourself
honestly... Were scientists really that ignorant of fact just 30 years ago, or
is this a guessing game and claims of finality in this debate are not only
dishonest, but dangerous? - tha malcontent)
"I really hope the decision by the academy to honor the work by director Davis
Guggenheim and these producers will convince people who did not go see it before
to see the movie and learn about the climate crisis and become a part of the
(The "alleged climate crisis", if you're
Regardless of what these snake oil salesmen say, this is NOT "settled science".
- tha malcontent)
Guggenheim also thanked Gore for inspiring his film.
"All of us were inspired by his fight for 30 years to tell this truth to all of
us," Guggenheim said.
(They must have been inspired by Algore's C+ and D
in his Natural Sciences courses. - tha malcontent)
The win was especially pleasing to Gore because it came during a year when the
academy had taken steps to save energy and preserve the environment.
(Like not flying on private jets?... Uh, probably
not! - tha malcontent)
Oscar ballots were made from partially recycled paper and organic produce was
served at the Governor's Ball. The academy joined with the Natural Resources
Defense Council to reduce energy usage and increase recycling.
(Oscar ballots... Seriously?... These people are
beyond delusional. - tha malcontent)
"For the first time in the history of the Oscars, this show has officially gone
green," DiCaprio said.
(What in the hell does that mean, Arnie Grape?...
Can't you just picture "Leo" in the back at the Oscars panting to Algore, "I
played an Arnold in a movie once, President Gore, really I did!" - tha
Other initiatives included rides for presenters and stars in hybrid vehicles.
The academy said it had explored hydrogen-powered fuel cell buses to transport
crew and other workers, but did not have enough time to do it this year.
(What about the private jets?... - tha malcontent)
Meals for the hundreds of crew and cast members were served on reusable plates
and biodegradable dishware.
(Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawn... - tha malcontent)
Food left over from the post Oscars Governor's Ball was to be donated to a local
(I have been reading and commenting on the AP for at
least a decade, and I am into my 7th year on my Blog, and I am very used to them
giving the other side when "reporting" on the Rights claims... I am also used to
them not doing the same when it's reversed... This is yet another example. To
read this, there is no debate on the issue of "global warming" and it's causes.
That's beyond poor "journalism, but the AP already knows this. - tha malcontent)
