Al Gore Really Lets the BS Fly

Speaking at a conference in Aspen on Thursday, Al Gore sounded frustrated — like a man who just found out Standard & Poor’s has downgraded his carbon credits to “junk” status.

This is from an article at the Colorado Independent entitled Al Gore Calls BS on Corporate Polluters (Al, Inc. got to Aspen by hitching a ride from Ed Begley Jr. in the sidecar of his bicycle).

Suffice to say it sounds as if the frustration is catching up:

The model of media manipulation used then [cigarette companies delaying implementation of the surgeon general's report on the hazards of smoking], Gore said, “was transported whole cloth into the climate debate. And some of the exact same people — I can go down a list of their names — are involved in this. And so what do they do? They pay pseudo-scientists to pretend to be scientists to put out the message: ‘This climate thing, it’s nonsense. Man-made CO2 doesn’t trap heat. It may be volcanoes.’ Bullshit! ‘It may be sun spots.’ Bullshit! ‘It’s not getting warmer.’ Bullshit!” Gore exclaimed.

“When you go and talk to any audience about climate, you hear them washing back at you the same crap over and over and over again,” he continued. “There’s no longer a shared reality on an issue like climate even though the very existence of our civilization is threatened. People have no idea! … It’s no longer acceptable in mixed company, meaning bipartisan company, to use the goddamn word climate. It is not acceptable. They have polluted it to the point where we cannot possibly come to an agreement on it.”

Al’s just a quart of missing strawberries and a handful of ball bearings away from turning into Captain Queeg on the witness stand. It’s only a matter of time.
