[Gore] did not know, as the others did, that the conference was being streamed…

As reported by the NYT. Oops. Now we know why we heard the real Gore speaking, not just the made for TV version of Al. And… due to this story going viral, we get the “Full Monty” at last.

From AspenJournalism.org

These remarks were recorded in the Doerr-Hosier Center, where the event took place, through the center’s sound board. The reporter who recorded them, Brent Gardner-Smith, had a press pass to the event and was recording what he understood to be remarks that were also being streamed on the Internet and were therefore public.

Here’s the essence of Gore’s “bullshit” remarks in high quality audio, plus other highlights we haven’t heard before.

Below is the audio of his entire talk, nearly 90 minutes.

…and the highlights, with notes below:

:03 on the lack of online business models that can support investigative reporting

:56 On Tahir Square being more literal and metaphorical, including emergence of new consciousness

4:44 does not buy that the Internet is inherently polarizing

6:36 On assumptions regarding free markets

7:23 on the workings of the brain and distraction

8:39 our culture is based on distraction

9:00 on dominance of money in campaigns

9:37 fools errand to try and change campaign finance laws, but Internet can help

10:19 need for public square

11:14 has to be a neutral place to share common information

12:23 on effort to pin 9/11 on Saddam Hussein

14:18 recent debt debate also influenced by propaganda

15:19 on creating a shared reality online

16:18 problem-solving requires “a single reality”

17:11 reason can triumph over wealth and power, but in the TV age, wealth and power triumph

18:37 on the importance of New York and DC to PR efforts

19:39 how the debt ceiling debate was influenced by TV ads

20:19 share reality helped make the U.S. great, now we’re making bad decisions without it

21:05 tobacco interests fighting back on TV in the ’60s

21:47 On “The Merchants of Doubt” and tobacco regulation

  1. Does this guy think everyone, except for him are knuckle dragging morons? He’s been telling lies so long he actually believes them! Virtually everyone of his points is the exact opposite of reality.

  2. Made the Fox Special Report this evening, though Brett Baier regrettably used the term ‘denier’ of the targets of the Goracle’s ire.

    /Mr Lynn

  3. He is the goofy guy sitting on a park bench talking to himself………..why does anyone listen?

  4. This “there is no warming thing”, it’s nonsense. Man-made CO2 traps heat. It’s not — ‘It may be Chinese aerosols.’ Bullshit! ‘It may be low level volcanic aerosols.’ Bullshit! ‘The heat is in the pipeline’ Bullshit! ‘It can’t be sun spots.’ Bullshit! ‘It’s still getting warmer.’ Bullshit!

  5. We are not out of the woods yet. The democrats just names their member of the deficit committee.

    Reid Will Name Sens Murray, Baucus, Kerry To Debt Panel -Source

    [snip]

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) will name Sens. Patty Murray (D., Wash.), Max Baucus (D., Mont.) and John Kerry (D., Mass.) to a panel of lawmakers created as part of last week’s deal to raise the debt ceiling, a Democratic official said.

    Murray, a member of the Senate Democratic leadership team, will be named the co-chairman of the committee, the official said.

    Note: Kerry and Murray supported CAP and TRADE.

    flashback:

    Kerry, Boxer: U.S. ‘Needs’ Cap-and-Trade on Carbon Emissions Even if Energy Costs Rise

    http://www.cnsnews.com/node/45330

    Democratic Sens. John Kerry and Barbara Boxer told CNSNews.com that the nation must adopt the Obama administration’s cap-and-trade proposal to reduce carbon emissions, even if it results in massive increases in gasoline and electricity prices.

    When CNSNews.com asked the Massachusetts Democrat whether the country could afford cap-and-trade during the recession, Kerry responded, “Yes, yes, yes, and yes.” He added: “The cap and trade system is – in fact – going to help us kick our economy back into gear.

    Here is what Murray said….

    Lets see who the republicans put on the committee………………

  6. I can’t thank you enough for posting this. Hearing his tantrum will give me a warm fuzzy feeling for the rest of the week.

  7. You’d think the guy would have released by now that it’s not a good idea to do or say things behind closed doors that he wouldn’t want the news media or public to learn about.

  8. Al Gore’s comments reminded me of “On Bullshit,” in which Princeton professor Harry G. Frankfurt explored the term and defined it to be a declaration made by one who is indifferent to its veracity but intends that it influence the listener.

  9. And this stuttering, unconfident and frequently incoherent shambler was almost the leader of the first nation. I’m more than a tad shocked.
    How come a nation of 200+ individuals got distilled into such an unrepresentative and incapable fraction?
    I love democrasy but, sometimes, just have to say thanks to FLA

  10. Imagine him as president, well imagine him watching Clinton be president, oops. Well we now have a president that does not mention Climate only Carbon tax. Maybe as in carbon tax our way back to the stone age.

  11. OK- for clarification let me replace the words ‘200+ individuals’ with 200 Million+ talented individuals!

  12. At 8:51 PM on 9 August, john goes a bit off-topic about the National Socialists (c’mon, there’s nothing “Democratic” about ‘em any more) selected by Dingy Harry to serve on the wholly unconstitutional “deficit committee,” including two of the more persistently idiotic “Cap-and-Trade” advocates, Kerry (Taxachusetts) and Murray (Washington).

    john finishes up by speculating:

    Lets see who the republicans put on the committee….

    Well, if they don’t select Rand Paul (Kentucky) from the Senate and Ron Paul (Texas) from the House, they’re “just jerking off.”

  13. “They pay pseudo-scientists to pretend to be scientists to put out the message” seems like it would be more accurate used on Gore and his ilk than actual respected scientists simply stating the truth about this crock.

  14. Eisenhower addressed this very point in a rarely-quoted segment of his famous military-industrial complex speech, in 1961:

    “The prospect of domination of the nation’s scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present and is gravely to be regarded. Yet, in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite.”

  15. Plato said in the Republic:
    Either kings must become philosophers or philosophers must become kings. Making scientists into politicians or public icons is something akin to the latter, but begs the question: how does the ethos of understanding the physical world relate to the ethos of understanding people? From my experience, they do not often go hand-in-hand.

  16. RoyFOMR says:

    OK- for clarification let me replace the words ’200+ individuals’ with 200 Million+ talented individuals!

    Try again Roy! I believe the US population passed 200 million sometime in the ’70s. It’s over 300 million now.

  17. When you get found out as a fraud – you rant, you don’t apologise.

    This is a normal human reaction.

  18. Gore can read the tea-leaves as well as anyone. And when his little carbon empire comes crashing down, he’ll activate Plan B. Big Al and some unemployed climate modelers will form a pop music group. It’ll be known as the Al Gore Rhythms. :)

  19. I wonder what this will do to Al Gore’s standing in the corporate speaker business. People can now get a very good idea of what they are going to get before they part with money and they might not be all that impressed by what Gore has to say.

  20. Isn’t the swearing, the passion and the reported knowledge that Al knew nothing about the streaming, and so was off-guard, just a viral campaign by the AGW movement? When an organised movement like this wave its right hand, you should be looking at what is is doing with the left.

  21. “The reporter who recorded them, Brent Gardner-Smith […]”

    I’m going to keep my eyes and ears open for any news reports of a “tragic accident” happening to Mr. Gardner-Smith in the coming months. He did a very big no-no and I don’t think Don Vito Gorelioni was pleased. ;o)

  22. And people pay big money to listen to this idiot? I’ve never heard such a load of absolute crap.

    “I love democrasy but, sometimes, just have to say thanks to FLA”

    Don’t just thank us, it was the great State of Tennessee ( Big Al’s home state) that didn’t vote for him either.

  24. “None of the guys in his unit in Vietnam could stand this fraud.” He was a hero of the journalistic corps, wasn’t he?

  25. This poor fellow is getting more bizarre as time passes.

    So this is what eco-nuts talk like behind closed doors? Hey Al, you need to make sure the door is closed.

  26. In a different time and place, he would make a great dictator. One reality, his. Woe betide anyone refusing to go along with that one reality.

  27. R John Muench says:
    August 9, 2011 at 11:58 pm
    Hey Al, what science training do you have? (Cue crickets please!)

    He got a D- in the subject that launched his ministry. Kind of gives you warm fuzzies to know the man who wants to remake the world in his own image basically flunked science. (not)

  28. Why are y’all so upset? You guys here ARE bullshitting the world. Some of you are probably wondering when the prayers of that Perry guy are finally going to work and will put an end to the unrelenting heat and drought in Texas (to mention one example of the statistically clearly increasing number of record heat). Oh, I forgot, the weather outside is not real, it’s Al Gore with a giant furnace pestering you. Or it’s the devil incarnate tempting you with evidence for arhhgglobal warming. Evidence? Defined as: what FAUX-news tell you is as true as the bible?

    He is the goofy guy sitting on a park bench talking to himself………..why does anyone listen?

    Spot on, Doug. Gore is the LEAST qualified to critique climate “pseudoscientists”. Why, talk about abject stupidity–Gore is the quintisential example. He’s also a prime example of conflict of interest.

    Good one, Larry Fields: (Al Gore Rhythms–for those of you who are a bit slow: “algorithms”). However, his preferred algorithms for climate are as tainted as his language.

  30. a follow-up and a bit of “cover” for gore!

    10 Aug: Tennessean: Karen Lee-Ryan: Al Gore’s expletives make waves on Internet
    Some websites have posted the audio saying Gore is “losing it” or has become “unhinged” or is “irate” during his remarks, but the first reporter to break the story disagrees.
    “Those reports are out of context,” says Brent Gardner-Smith, editor of the non-profit Aspen Journalism. “He wanted to make a point about how false information gets injected into democratic debate.”
    However, Gardner-Smith, who initially reported the story on Thursday and has watched it go viral today, says “I raised my eyebrows at the language…but it was appropriate in the context. Still startling, but appropriate.”

    http://www.tennessean.com/article/20110809/NEWS08/110809019/Al-Gore-s-expletives-make-waves-Internet-audio-

  31. I wonder when Gore will establish his climate-haven, perhaps to be called “Gore-town” where green individuals (we understand the dual meaning and irony involved) would be able to be totally “safe” from the predations of deniers and climate disruption….forever?

    p.s. I suspect that “Gore-town” will remain fictive with a population of exactly 1, unless even he doesn’t believe his utterances.

    He doesn’t seem to realize that he is the “tobacco” salesman who is denying the science. — John M Reynolds

    Didn’t Al used to raise tobacco?

  33. In Australia we have a Prime Minister that blatently lied to gain office. She says she changed her mind. Now there’s nothing wrong with changing your mind, in fact it’s quite healthy to do so if the facts dictate. But I object strongly when someone changes my mind for me. I can’t believe the journalist don’t pick up on the fact that this is a blatent abuse of the democratic process no matter what your beliefs on the subject of climate change. But there again as when ever I email the ABC I always sign off — ABC = ALP

  34. Does this mean that many people can listen without paying for the ‘privilege’?

    Good!

    It also means that the non-believers can listen to the rants and find out what he is really like.

  35. Gorelucious Maximus could actually claim he invented BS.
    He should just go all in, yell BS and and declare that he is the president.

    He’s that far gone.

    Imagine if he tired to have a discussion right here on any topic. He’d be incappable of simple conversation.

  36. Gore really comes over as thinking that he is some sort of demi-god, that what ushers from his overblown ego must be right. What an idiot and to think he could have been president of the USA!

  37. If Big Tobacky were “merchants of doubt” then Gore and his ilk are Merchants of Fear. Mostly, though, I think he really just likes peddling his climate CRP.
    It’s hilarious how he fantasizes that the MSM has been responsible for sowing doubt while the internet will be the salvation of his Warmist ideology, when in fact it is the exact opposite.
    He will remain clueless and delusional to the end, when they put him in a straitjacket.

  38. This is a sad case of a probably uber-high IQ’er without a lick of sense. I would understand, if this is the case, why the marriage did not last. You need a LOT of good sense to stay married till death do you part.

    Among groups like this, swearing is a sign of how strongly they feel about things. Dropping an f-bomb or two is the height of discourse for these people.

    If Gore really wanted to regain his status as a messiah for this movement, he shoulda dropped some f-bombs!

  40. “They pay pseudo-scientists to pretend to be scientists to put out the message”

    And Al, when did you get your science degree? For there are abolutely no scientitifc methods in demonstrating the hypotheses you espouse as “truth”.

    =================================================================
    I added the emphasis.

    I won’t pretend that there’s at least 100 million people in this country with mediocre skills and intelligence. I thought Roy was being a bit generous. We’re suffering from the same problem Europe is. We’re breeding more of our less successful people and less of our more successful. I fear neither will end well if left to continue.

  42. Gore is smart, but tragically misguided – he’s invested himself so deeply in this issue, he’s unable to change his mind – trapped in his own memes – what a waste of his own life, sad, very sad…

  43. Al Gore and his surrogate’s (e.g., NPR, NBC, CBS, ABC, MSNBC, CNN, NYT, LAT) are dishonest and corrupt. Instead of presenting the climate facts to the listeners and viewers, they all take the warming alarmists’ position and propagandize accordingly. However, they are being exposed every single day. Their fraud and corruption and dishonesty are on full display. They can no longer hide as they did decades ago.

  44. Pamela, Pete-
    There is zero evidence that Gore is particularily smart and even less for any high IQ. His academic achievements are ordinary, even below average, despite his advantages of private schooling and tutors during his childhood. While we were subjected to political ads showing him “on the farm”, his formative years were spent living in a Washington, D.C. hotel suite.
    His vaunted book is just “cut and paste” and very similiar to his recent outburst.
    Thanks to the voters of his home state, Fla., and, primarily, Ohio-had he won there the Florida results would not have mattered-the USA was spared from him as POTUS.
    Given that the family wealth and influence that resulted in his initial political sucess was based on oil and tobacco holdings, and his more recent additions to his personal wealth are a result of smoke and mirrors and government policy subsidies,its hard to have any positive feelings or opinons of Mr. Gore.

  45. When is Al going to reduce his carbon footprint to less than that of average human inhabitant of the planet Earth? When he does that, I might start paying attention to what he has to say.

  46. Such tasty poetic justice being served this week– at least something good happened during the worst financial weeks in US history, known forever as the “Obama Downgrade”.

  47. The results of Al’s CAGWist IQ Test

    Test Question #237 – Something walks like a duck, sounds like a duck and looks like a duck. What is it? Pick one of the following.

    a) duck
    b) denier
    c) the end of the world as we know it
    d) millions of degrees
    e) a masseuse

    Al’s answer: Definitely not a). It’s tough to pick from the rest. OK, the answer is probably c) since everything I see is like that. But, if it is Saturday night it could be e).

    John

    PS – anybody else have other examples of Al’s IQ test results?

  48. Al Gore has a right to speak, even to lie and talk about things he knows nothing about. Anyone who listens to him, aside for the comedic value, has been contaminated and may suffer from delusion. He has still not admitted there are any errors in his “Inconvenient Truth”. Even the title is a lie.

  49. You know your Fearless Leader mantra is really in trouble: When you begin to imply that the masses you want to impress are knuckle-dragging morons, because they don’t share your ‘reality’.

  50. Uber-high IQ test results do not automatically translate into school or life success. Some (as in less than most) of these students are very messy, have horrible pensmanship, no or very wooden social skills, and get average to below average grades. They can even become extensively involved in white collar crime as they get older, and may start up several ultimately failed businesses. Marriages are often strained to the breaking point. Gore reminds me of these kinds of students.

  51. Hey MODERATORS!!

    Thanks for the edit from ‘duke’ to ‘duck’.

  53. Yep, it’s always funny to see the alarmist baffled that the skeptics get all the clout.
    Gore just can’t believe that he could not do the spin any more.
    All alarmist have a good cause: save the world!
    To do so they preach: thou have to be modest and humble.
    They take some facts to support their cause and make the spin. They get desperate when they see the spin is not working, because reality comes in their way.

  54. to MikeinAppalachia,

    I was trying to be facetious without appearing to be so – now the truth out – damn!:.))

  55. I listened to the whole 90 minutes, and I thought it was a very interesting discussion of democracy and the media they were having. And my opinion of Al Gore went up several notches.

    I thought that the point where he ‘loses it’ was one which came in his response to a question about tobacco and smoking, and how if the US Surgeon General had said that smoking causes lung cancer in the internet age, a week later there would be somebody else saying that smoking helped people to breathe better (or something like that). Gore sees the global warming debate in the same light, but with Big Oil replacing Big Tobacco as the denier of the climate science authorities.

    Back in 1960, the US Surgeon General was accepted unquestioningly as an authority, and everybody believed him. When the climate scientists tried to come on as authorities in the same way 50 years later, they weren’t readily believed.

    The real question maybe is not so much “Are people wrong today to doubt or disagree with authoritative climate scientists?” but instead, “Should people have believed the Surgeon General so readily 50 years ago?”

  56. Philip Thomas says:

    ====================================================
    Philip, that only makes sense if they are trying to portray him as vulnerable, you know, the poor beat up guy trying to save the world and making an impassioned speech but getting carried away by his emotions. I’m not sure that his speech fits that perception.
    And does it really matter where the left hand is when the right hand is stuck firmly up the bum?

  57. Gore does not have uber-high IQ test results. Significantly lower than GWB, in fact (as is Kerry).
    Oh, I hear also that while he claims to be 6’1″, those who have met him say it’s more like 5’7″ (plus elevator shoes?). Not much height to carry all the lard he’s putting on.

  58. Al Gore fails to understand his failure because he is a politician, not a scientist. In politics you go to the interview/speech/ and spout bullshit, your opponent does not dispute it, he just adds his own pile of bullshit. You cap his CRaP with more of your own until all that is left as time runs out is an interviewer/ audience subsumed by CRaP. Politician goes away happy, audience goes away bemused. However, when science is introduced to the forum, someone inevitably stands up and says,”Hey,that’s CRaP, there is no proof/ no evidence/no logic/no sense to what you are saying”. This is anathema to a politician. We are supposed to clap the CRaP and go away bemused, not argue the point. Politics and science DO NOT MIX because the fundamental rule is different. Bullshit is acceptable in politics, not in science.

  59. I don’t know if this is ethical or allowed but I lifted this comment by “Dave” in its entirety from Jo Novas site on the same topic. It creased me up! Please feel free to snip it out if one cannot do this.

    comment 22 Dave. August 7th, 2011 at 8:54 am
    Halftime:

    Al Gore walks onto the stage at a UN meeting – the crowd jeers & boos, The Pope walks onto the stage and the crowd cheers. The Pope sits next to Al and says:-
    “Do you know that with one little movement of my hand I can make every person in this crowd go wild with joy! This joy will not be a momentary display, like those believers in CAGW, but go deep into their hearts, and they’ll forever speak of this day and rejoice”

    Al Gore replied “Bullshit!”

    So the pope backhanded the self-important rude little upstart and the crowd went wild!

    …Back in 1960, the US Surgeon General was accepted unquestioningly as an authority, and everybody believed him. When the climate scientists tried to come on as authorities in the same way 50 years later, they weren’t readily believed…

    In the ’60s, the Surgeon General had epidemiological studies to bolster his case. And in the beginning, the climate scientists WERE believed. It’s just that as policy decisions started to be made that involved massive disruption to the economy people said “Wait a sec, could we just look at those numbers again?” and that’s when the fun started.

  61. Me thinks tax increases are on the horizon from the special committee. The republican selection does not look too good, especially with the two Michigan reps. Upton has already been on record of supporting tax increases and not too long ago CAP and TAX, and it only takes ONE repub to agree with the 6 liberal dems and the deal is done. Too bad….

  62. Alcheson,

    Did you really expect anything different? This was pure Republican incompetence, which will lead to one of two outcomes: either one R caves and the D faction gets what it wants, or there is no agreement, and our military is gutted – which may happen anyway.

    I suspect the former, since it’s easy enough to buy a vote with enough pork.

  63. “johnB you just created a strawman or you lied. Which is it?”

    Any reason it can’t be both, Phil?

  64. a bit of evolutionary psychology might clarify the Gore syndrome:

    It may well be that social attention rewards are the most important motivating mechanism behind human activities. In our tribal past status indicated by social attention was tied directly to reproductive success, and it is still a major factor in this endeavour.

    It should come as no surprise that this powerful reward mechanism can be taken over by drug-induced rewards, but this is not the only way the brain reward system can be hijacked. Memes (we finally get back to them!), which manifest as cults and related social movements, have “discovered” the brain’s reward system as well. Successful cult memes induce intense social interaction behaviour between cult members. This trips the attention detectors. Tripping the detectors causes the release of reward chemicals without having any more connection to “real world” improvements in reproductive success than abusing addictive drugs. Anyone who has ever had the feeling of being higher than a kite after giving a public speech is well aware of the effects of attention.

  65. A delightful full on irony meme – you should listen to the full 90 mins if you have the chance

    On how information is freedom….until it bites you in the derrière at which point it becomes…well we had better ask the man himself – This truly has made my day :-)

  66. Not sure if the vido link will work, but it is Jimmy Kimmel making fun of Al Gore un censored.

  67. Look Al,
    You’re a likeable guy – you’re rich and handsome – everything going for you.

    Before you lose all credibility, why not gradually just shift your propaganda to real, chemical pollution. I mean, we all know the problem is with the IPCC- not you!

    You can always say, you based your mission on what you thought was the most reliable source of science- but, it turns out the IPCC is corrupt.

    So there – don’t you think that’s a face saving way out?

    Come on Al, there are many real environmental challenges out there that need a high profile spokesman such as yourself – it’s just not climate change.

    best to you.

  68. Now we know why Gpre generally doesn’t allow people in to hear his talks unless they are committed enough to pay the price of admission!!

  69. D.J. Dawkins,

    those epidemiological studies weren’t any better than the studies that claimed DDT was bad for the environment. You do remember that Correlation does not equal Causation?? Most of those epidemiological studies were poorly controlled studies in correlation. It was years before any decent research came out that did more than show correlation. So then they went after second hand smoke. The studies are even WORSE!!!!

    JUNK SCIENCE!!

  70. Ever lean back on your climbing spikes and realize, that the strangest thing about time is that in the Bush/Gore election, the SANE guy won!

    Ever think as well that what you, a person with hundreds of hours’ electronic engineering & years of atmospheric electromagnetic energy transmission, capture and analysis, would lean back and lay a hand on the knobs of your spectrum analyzer to have the thought flash through your mind, that

    CREATIONISTS

    called the SCIENTIFIC BLUFF of the most SOPHISTICATED M.E.N. F.R.O.M. A.R.O.U.N.D. T.H.E. W.O.R.L.D. and WON.

    Ever think how ironic that is, all told? What the CHANCES are that the PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE who LOST the EASIEST to WIN ELECTION in RECENT HISTORY, would GO INSANE upon losing and LAUNCH a C.A.M.P.A.I.G.N. of T.E.R.R.O.R. that WE ALL HAD TO RESORT TO HIS POLITICS IN SPITE of the ELECTION or WE WOULD ALL DIE?

    Gentlemen & ladies, I may put the first part in those sarcastically subjective terms reserved for winners, but parts two and three are D.O.N.E. and S.H.O.W.N. true.

    And people say they just can’t understand the thrill of watching world politics for the laughs of ones’ metaphilosophical life… I sometimes say that kind of thing to my engineering friends and they all laugh, too;

    You LITERALLY, COULDN’T MAKE ALL THIS UP and have it be funnier, if it wasn’t so tragically criminal.

    I’d never have believed the past few years’ American history if I weren’t around to measure it in the electronic wireless telecommunications & controls field. We put instruments on a lotta stuff. Pretty much anything a guy’s got to do, if he wanted to automate, magnify, speed it up or make it steadier, we put the things together that let him either talk to it, control it, or meter it.

    So I know it wasn’t just some perception I had during a sunstroke while sniffing solvents to clean my anti-black-helicopter gun down to the compound there…

    LoL…

  71. I guess we’ll all now be told, that Gore’s speech was a “Big Oil Astroturf Propaganda Campaign against Mr President-of-the-World Gore.”
    LoLoL…

    Sometimes during the unraveling of ClimateGate revelations I’d bait those warmers WITH THE FACT that THE LEADER of THEIR MOVEMENT was a SOUTHERN WHITE MALE EVANGELICAL CREATIONIST.

    They didn’t think that was very funny.
    Course they didn’t think it was Ok to read a thermometer without the government telling them what it REALLY meant when it said X, Y, or Z;

    Wow.
    ZombieLand.
    W.a.y.

  72. I think that when Al received the Nobel Prize, he threw out any doubt he may have had, fully believing that he was fully vindicated and completely correct.

    It may take him a long while to understand that he was had.

  73. I guess we should have just pointed out to them that Al Gore Science was actually, Southern White Creationist Science, and that would have settled the debate, huh..

    LoL at the entire atheistic, ‘we don’t do nuthin but cypher’ uber-slipper-&-sandals establishment in government jobs, FOLLOWING a SOUTHERN CREATIONIST EVANGELICAL piping them all crazy as drunk baboons down Darwin Drive to Full Circle, at the corner of Far Out Avenue and Meltdown Street.

    “Back in 1960, the US Surgeon General was accepted unquestioningly as an authority, and everybody believed him. When the climate scientists tried to come on as authorities in the same way 50 years later, they weren’t readily believed.

    The real question …”
    =================================
    Frank, do you believe the US Surgeon General is still believable today? If so then it isn’t the Internet that is responsible for disbelief in climate science. If not, then what has caused such important people to lose credibility?
    Try googling “does the US surgeon general lie” and you will see a hundred web-sites still trying to make cigarette smoking look good.
    The real questions are:
    1. Why are people not affected by tobacco rhetoric on the Internet today , yet so easily convinced by the AGW denialist nonsense on the Internet?
    2. If the US surgeon general was accepted so unquestioningly 50 years ago, why do so many people still smoke today?
    3. What does smoking have to do with climate change?
    4. Wasn’t it the US surgeon general who told Californians to be prepared for harmful radiation coming from Japan to the point that there was a run on iodine tablets?

    Where you one of those Americans who taped up their houses and stock-piled iodine tablets waiting for the end, eating sea-kelp and rosemary? “You’d have to be a fool not to see it coming, to not be prepared”…

  75. Well if the Goristas can’t rationally convince grownups the science is settled then naturally all that leaves are the kiddies to frighten-

    You remember how it was baby boomers. The Russians are coming to get ya and in the event of a nuclear flash, curl up in the foetal position behind the monkey bars and kiss your asses goodbye. Mind you the Russians actually had some nukes as did our parents and if things got out of hand, then it really could be kaboom! Well liberal progressives can’t have a generation of kids growing up without a bogeyman so it’s Cold War be damned and welcome to their Warm War, retro bogeyman kiddies!

    “The survey found natural disasters were having a particularly big impact on kids with 50 per cent listing natural disasters as their number one worry when it came to climate change.”

    Surprise, surprise eh Big Al? But if the kiddies and parents are poles apart because of the bogeyman vs unsettling science then there’s one thing they can both agree on with the Oz Gummint banging away at the taxpayer lauded benefits of its shiny new carbon tax grab-

    “One things kids and parents agreed on was who should pay for damage to the environment with 87 per cent of both parents and kids believing big polluters should pay for the damage.”

    No surprises there as the kids parrot mum and dad’s view from home eh? Pick on anyone but us with your bogeyman Gummint!

  76. Frank, do you believe the US Surgeon General is still believable today?

    No. But that’s because it’s only become possible to easily get hold of the epidemiological studies in the last 10 years or so – i.e. in the internet era – and realise how weak the science actually was. It’s far, far weaker than any of the AGW climate science.

    1. Why are people not affected by tobacco rhetoric on the Internet today , yet so easily convinced by the AGW denialist nonsense on the Internet?

    I turn the question around, and ask why some people will readily question climate science, but will uncritically accept the far worse science underpinning the Surgeon General’s report of 50 years ago.

    2. If the US surgeon general was accepted so unquestioningly 50 years ago, why do so many people still smoke today?

    Because they enjoy smoking? Like they also enjoy having a few beers and eating pizza.

    3. What does smoking have to do with climate change?

    They’re structurally identical issues. Both entail manufacturing irrational fear of trace amounts of gases in the atmosphere.

    4. Wasn’t it the US surgeon general who told Californians to be prepared for harmful radiation coming from Japan to the point that there was a run on iodine tablets?

    I have no idea. Did he?

  77. You need to have a psychiatrist analyze his remarks; they are basically incoherent and illogical. In the past psychologists had analyzed him as a borderline personality and fundamentally unstable. Its amazing and troubling that he could even have gotten as close as he did to the Presidency.

  78. This Al Gore chap reminds me of side show Bob of Simpson’s fame only with less intelligence. America barely escaped being run by an idiot. Unfortunately for us in Australia we elected an idiot, you only elected an incompetent.

  79. i hate to say this but al gore knew it was streaming. Look at all the attention this has caused. I think al will have the last laugh on this one unfortunatly.

  80. I can only tolerate listening to Gore for at most 5 minutes.
    He is certainly an expert in the field of hot air.
    You get the feeling that he will explode at any time because he is so full of himself.
    Approaching critical mass for sure.

    Actually, no. A malevolent incompetent. Whose party and backers got several 2000-page-plus omnibus bills passes, unexamined, with subversive horrors galore tucked away in them.
    A carbon tax is a mere bagatelle compared to what has been foisted on America.

  82. Indeed Gore has run off at the mouth, once too often with this diatribe,
    but did you know about the dirty, oiley, black, skeleton that still hides
    in Gore’s closet. I am writing about his close, and largely forgotten,
    relationship with Occidental Petroleum (OXY), and the Gore family
    relationship with Armand Hammer and the former oppresive Soviet
    regime of Lenin and beyond.

    Gore sold off the US Navy reserves of crude oil, at a knock-down
    price, in a no-bid contract to the company (Occidental Petroleum),
    in which his family was a major shareholder. This 47,000 arce
    plot, at Elk Hills, still forms the major backbone of that company. Al Gore
    is still involved with Occidental, it is reported.

    Al Gore, the green fraudster, see more at the website linked
    to the name “Axel” above. Many more arcane and climate-related
    videos and audio recordings at that site. Eclectic collection.

    Thank you for reading thus far :)
