On Saturday I wrote a little about an Al Gore diatribe from a conference in Aspen that was quoted in an article in the Colorado Independent. The partial transcript suggests that Gore is becoming even more frustrated than he was during the Great Dimpled Chad Hunt of 2000.
If you missed it, here was some of what Gore was quoted as saying:
“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.”
Thanks to the miracle of poor quality recording equipment, Al’s words can now be heard in all of their “I’ve got one foot in the cuckoo’s nest and the other on a carbon neutral banana peel” glory. It’s the sound of a level of frustration that only a man who recently bought a seaside mansion but who nevertheless expects everybody to believe the oceans are this close to rising and killing everything within 50 miles of the coast can muster.
Here’s the recording, with a h/t to Hot Air’s Allahpundit by way of Fox Nation. The sound is a little tinny — sort of like Al’s calling in from Mars — which might not be far from the truth (the Red Planet is battling global warming too):
Update: There’s a better quality audio on YouTube.
