"A blizzard of lies" from Al Gore

Tuesday, March 2nd, 2010

Al Gore has a huge financial interest in the myth that human activity causes global warming. Perpetrating the fraud of AGW (Anthropogenic Global Warming) has made him even wealthier than did his family’s tobacco business. And he’s prepared to defend this lie with the same zeal with which he and the tobacco companies defended the lie that cigarette-smoking was not a serious health hazard.

Gore has came out of hiding with an op-ed piece in the New York Times. If the spin makes you dizzy and the fantasy world he inhabits reminds you of Lewis Carroll’s Wonderland, you might regain your footing with a dose of reality from Investor’s Business Daily:

If hyperbole and chutzpah had a child, it would be the opening paragraph of Gore’s op-ed in Sunday’s New York Times. Gore surfaced from the global warming witness-protection program to opine that despite admissions of error and evidence of fraud by various agencies, we still face “an unimaginable calamity requiring large-scale, preventive measures to protect human civilization as we know it.”

Perhaps he’s trying to protect his investments as he knows them, for he is heavily involved in enterprises that deal with carbon offsets and green technology. If the case for climate change is shown to be demonstrably false, a lot of his green evaporates like moisture from the ocean.
