Al Gore Rant: Former V.P. Slams Global Warming Skeptics, "Bull$#!t" Theories

by at . Comments

Al Gore does not mince words when it comes to climate.

Speaking in Aspen, Colo., last week, the former Vice President warned of the impacts of global warming and absolutely tore into its persistent skeptics.

Gore told the Aspen Institute's "Networks and Citizenship" panel not to believe those that dismiss global warming. Or as he put it, the "bull$#!t" of those "washing back at you the same crap over and over and over again."

"There's no longer a shared reality," Gore lamented. "It's no longer acceptable in mixed company - bipartisan company - to use the goddamn word 'climate.'"

"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!"

Clearly, something lit a fire under Gore - and it wasn't CO2.

Global warming: Real, humanity-caused problem?

Proven facts backed up by scientific research: Bigfoots existance- visit the Bigfoot tourist center near Mt. St. Helens and see the plaster casts of his feet. The Lock Ness Monster- See the video of Nessie on TV. Space aliens - The Pyramids prove Aliens visit earth. Who else could have levitated the stones into placed? Global Warming- Billions of dollars in federal research grants could never cause an enviornmental scientist to be biased. Al Gore profiting a billion or so from being an enviornmental writer and documentary producer certainly couldn't motivate his opinion.

FYI:
90% of the Conservanuts who think Global Warming is bunk also think that Mary, the Mother of Jesus, was a virgin and that Jesus was not the bastard son of a Roman Soldier as currently documented.
Even the current valid translation says that the original Greek used the term "young woman" instead of the mistranslated Latin word "virgin."

Is this the same Al Gore who admitted he knew ethanol added to gasoline did nothing for air quality,except introduce a new set of pollutants; did nothing for mileage...actually, reduces it ...but was an ethanol champion as it would get him green votes in the 2000 election? Is this the same Al Gore who stands to make beaucoup bucks if all the carbon taxes are enacted as he holds lot of stocks, if not actual ownership, of companies who will deal in buying/sellinng carbon credits?...Who had no declared major in college and who was allowed to withdraw from grad school 2x and has never taken a science course? Yes, folks, that Al Gore. But, for the climate change/global warming cult, facts have no meaning, do they?

At this juncture, it seems Al Gore is more about money than he is about his chosen golden calf. I'm not sure if Global warming is man made, but this planet is going to do as it has done for eons. Perhaps loosing his credibility, having false data exposed, and him losing a bundle in the process is the driving factor here, not concern for his fellow man.

The only global warming and BS comes from this clown. I cant believe we pay to protect this moron still. This idiots footprint is as big as his ego. What a FOOL.

It should also be noted that the scientist that did not agree with the global warming were kicked out and not allowed to speak for a very long time. No second opinions were allowed.

Vice President Al Gore is not quailified to talk about Global Warming, but there a plenty of people who are. 90% of Climent experts (people who make a living doing this) agree that this is a problem and it's caused by humans. Al Gore may be an idiot, but it looks like he's on the right side of this issue.

We should also note that at one time it was too cold in Europe to grow anything and then the climate changed and it warmed up enough to change that. I can't think who could have caused that one.

So, do we believe that the Egyptians caused the climate changes in their day? They used to have grass and be able to grow many things and then the climate changed and their culture fell apart. Must have been the animals and there were no camels at that time.

The world was concerned about Global Warming way before Al Gore came onto the scene. This issue should not be a political football. There is nothing to gain by dismissing it.
