No matter how many politically-motivated, lying, liberal "climate scientists" he has on his "side" I'll never buy into his lies. I'm a little hard-headed, too, Al. Oh, and I was blessed by God with common sense. Sorry you weren't, Al.
Gore is now embarking on a last ditch effort to attempt to resurrect and re-new his faltering life's mission.
(Reuters) - Former Vice President Al Gore will renew his 30-year campaign to convince skeptics of the link between climate change and extreme weather events this week in a 24-hour global multi-media event.
"24 Hours of Reality" will broadcast a presentation by Al Gore every hour for 24 hours across 24 different time zones from Wednesday to Thursday, with the aim of convincing climate change deniers and driving action against global warming among households, schools and businesses.
The campaign also asks people to hand over control of their social networking accounts on Facebook and Twitter to it for 24 hours to deliver Gore's message.
"There will be 200 new slides arguing the connection between more extreme weather and climate change," Trewin Restorick, chief executive of the event's UK partner Global Action Plan, told Reuters on Monday.
"There will be a full-on assault on climate skeptics, exploring where they get their funding from."
Gore tried to raise awareness about global warming in the 2006 documentary film "An Inconvenient Truth," which earned $49 million at the box office worldwide. The film was criticized by some climate change skeptics for being one-sided.
Concern about climate change in the United States, the world's second biggest emitter, has fallen steadily to 48 percent in 2011, from 62 percent in 2007, an opinion poll showed in August.
Gore's presentation will be available at: climaterealityproject.org/

I can only imagine that as every tornado season rearranges lives and cities (as has been the case since the beginning of time), and as new hurricanes form (as has been the case since the beginning of time), or when record rainfall is received (as has been the case since the beginning of time) that Algore is sitting in his carbon-emitting lair rubbing his evil hands together thinking how great each catastrophe is for him and the preponderance of his money-making lie. For it is only extreme weather events like those I listed with which Algore seems to be concerned. Never mind the many weather records that have stood since weather record-keeping began.
One of Algore's biggest hypocrisies is to deny (deny, deny, deny) the correlation between fair weather and "climate change." If there is a mild winter, for example, this can not be used as evidence that "climate change" does NOT exist. Only record snowfall and extreme temperatures, for example, may be used to PROVE his case. The opposite can never be used to DISPROVE his fraudulent claims. I suppose it is his aforementioned lack of common sense that permits this, as well as the astounding level of hypocrisy that encapsulates this squalid movement and those at the forefront of it.
The climate has always changed and will always change...no matter what humans do...or what they don't do. Prior to the invention of the combustion engine, the number one "carbon emitter," tornadoes, hurricanes, massive snowfall, record high and low temperatures, tropical storms and depressions, floods, severe drought, and severe storms and weather of all types existed.
Take a look at this "top-ten list" of deadliest natural disasters:
10. Aleppo Earthquake – 1138, Syria [Deaths: 230,000]
9. Indian Ocean Earthquake – 2004, Indian Ocean [Deaths: 230,000]
8. Banqiao Dam Failure – 1975, China [Deaths: 231,000]
7. Tangshan Earthquake – 1976, China [Deaths: 242,000]
6. Kaifeng Flood – 1642, China [Deaths: 300,000]
5. India Cyclone – 1839, India [Deaths: 300,000+]
4. Shaanxi Earthquake – 1556, China [Deaths: 830,000]
3. Bhola Cyclone – 1970, Bangladesh [Deaths: 500,000 - 1,000,000]
2. Yellow River Flood – 1887, China [Deaths: 900,000 - 2,000,000]
1. Yellow River Flood – 1931, China [Deaths: 1,000,000 - 4,000,000]
If you remove the four earthquakes and the dam failure in 1975 from the above list, what is left to prove that "global warming" or "climate change" has affected our weather? Nothing. (For the record, there are members of the global warming cult that DO believe that "climate change" affects earthquakes and volcanoes.)
Actually, if Algore was really concerned about the future of mankind, he'd be welcoming of warmer temperatures because EXTREME COLD is the number one killer in the United States. Shame on you, Al.
Due to his lies about the negative effect of carbon dioxide on our environment, I must also suppose that Algore knows nothing of photosynthesis. Something we all learned about in the 7th grade. The video below shows the effects of carbon dioxide (CO2) on plant life.
Seems to me, when it comes to carbon dioxide, more is better. But, why let a little PROVEN and ACCEPTED science get in the way of an agenda and massive profit, right Al?
Algore's climate lie has the potential to change the way you live. Politicians that buy into his bullcrap are in a position to change the American way of life by placing restrictions on carbon emissions by "carbon producers" all over the country. (As soon as they figure out a way to tax cow farts, I'm certain they will.) Once energy producers in this country are forced to pay for their "excessive carbon emissions" (deemed as such by the EPA) the price of EVERY SINGLE THING we buy via the "cap and trade" scheme will increase. It won't be the energy producers' pockets that these new "taxes" come out of, it will be ours.
I suggest, that this week, while Algore is asking us to "hand over control of (our) social networking accounts on Facebook and Twitter to it for 24 hours to deliver Gore's message" that we, instead, dedicate that 24-hour period to ELIMINATING Algore's LIE by sharing the videos I've included in this post. Of course, you could just repeatedly re-post this article and kill all birds
In the meantime, while Algore's lie is languishing before us...we have this: The full-length movie "The Great Global Warming Swindle." I highly recommend watching AND sharing it with your friends...especially on Wednesday and Thursday of this week. Let's help Algore "spread the word." Isn't "social networking" fun? :)
Rather than provide a complete explanation of the following videos, I'm just going to post them and their titles as important videos that if you haven't seen already, and you are on the fence about the whole "man-made global warming" subject, you should see. If you have relatives, friends or neighbors that aren't quite sure whether or not "global warming" or "climate change" is man-made or man-caused, forward this post to them for them to see. This is the side of the debate that doesn't get any coverage from the mainstream media. It is up to us to spread the other side and let people make up their own minds. This is one reason I don't want to provide any commentary about the following videos; I've made my position clear on where I stand on the whole debate.
"Updated with Slides - Lord Christopher Monckton Speaking in St. Paul" (This original video had none of the "slides" from Lord Monckton's speech. The original video only showed him speaking from the lectern and never cut to the "slides" to which he refers to quite often in the video.)
"Lord Monckton Totally Destroys Global Warming & Greenpeace!"
(Lord Monckton discusses the theory of global warming with a Greenpeace activist on the street outside of a Greenpeace function.)
"Lord Monckton: Global Warming big scientific fad"
"Glenn Beck-Lord Monckton Debate Global Warming"
In this video, Lord Monckton challenges Algore AGAIN to a debate. The video was posted to YouTube on October 30, 2009. Algore still has not taken Lord Monckton up on his challenge. Nor will he. Ever.
Yes, I'm a big fan of Lord Monckton. But, he's not the only naysayer of the global warming/climate change scam. There's this guy, Patrick Moore, co-founder of the environmental organization Greenpeace. Yes, Greenpeace.
You can buy Patrick Moore's e-book "Confessions of a Greenpeace Dropout: The Making of a Sensible Environmentalist" here from Amazon for $9.99. The real, physical, hardbound book costs around of $34.00.
You can also find a little more information about Patrick Moore from this post on TheBlaze.com where the two videos above from FOX News are embedded.
Or, I'm sure you can use Google the same as I. When searching either Lord Christopher Monckton or Patrick Moore please keep in mind the overwhelming liberal agenda of the "believers" of the global warming movement. These two good men have been smeared by the left in almost every possible way. Listen to and read their OWN words IN CONTEXT and decide for yourself how you choose to interpret the information they offer. For example, searching for "debunking Lord Monckton" will result in 80 videos. Listen to the evidence and decide for yourself.
I'm also going to include links to several other videos and articles below. All of them are worth a look for anyone who remains a skeptic.
"Gore: Scientists Wouldn't Lie About Global Warming for Money, Skeptics Would"
"Global Warming Hoax"
"Global Warming: A Convenient Lie"
(John Coleman, the founder of The Weather Channel appears in this video, and in 2008 on Glenn Beck's show on CNN Headline News, offered a look into the future about the "Climategate" scandal that had yet to break.)
"Al Gore, fraud and hoax of Global Warming- Weather Channel"
Video (:47) (For the record, Algore's movie "An Inconvenient Truth" is still allowed in British schools...with a disclaimer on the beginning of it as the article beneath this video addresses.):
"CNN: Al Gore Lied About Global Warming"
"Al Gore's 'nine Inconvenient Untruths'"
"Climategate: 'Scientists would rather change facts than their theories'"
"Hot 'Climategate' debate: Scientists clash LIVE on RT"
"'Climategate' shadow looms over Copenhagen summit"

Video (15:06) (Video posted to YouTube on September 5, 2011. The "ABC" in this video is the "Australian Broadcasting Corporation." MAKE SURE YOU READ THE DESCRIPTION OF THIS VIDEO ON YOUTUBE, which is posted under the video on YouTube.)
"GOTCHA! The ABC Caught Lying about Climate Change! The ABC attack Lord Monckton with LIES!!!"
Lord Monckton gets to debate! Not with Algore, but with Dr. Richard Denniss the Executive Director of the Australia Institute and an adjunct professor with the Australian National University and a self-described "economist."
"National Press Club Debate Christopher Monckton v Richard Denniss 2011 Address"
I think that's enough. I feel like I've done my part for today. I've been working on this post for about 8 hours total to provide you with MORE information than you should need. Will you PLEASE forward this article and re-post on Facebook and Twitter for your friends to see? Thank you.
