Hump Day Hilarity – Gore: As American as Apple pie

Josh says: Climate Depot reports on Al Gore’s appearence on the David Letterman show, where Letterman asks:

‘You, Al Gore, Are Doing Business With Country That’s Enabling Your Ultimate Foe of Climate Change’

Al tells David ‘There’s a lot of opportunity in this crisis’. From Green tech to Oil funded Al Jazeera to Apple he has certainly done rather well.

    Al’s well that ends well.

  2. Vince Causey says:

    As Arthur Daley (Brits of a certain age will know) might say – Climate Change? There’s a nice little earner in it.

    Management will be unhappy. Start a clock on a new late night lineup.

    Gore on Current TV: “We won every single award in television journalism, . . ,”

    Right, Al. And you also invented the internet . . .

  5. Skiphil says:

    Just an aside, but it points to Mr. Gore’s unreliability for key facts. Gore says about Qatar that it is

    “…the closest ally of the U.S. In the Arab world. Our fleet is there.”

    The former VP (and then almost future President) does not seem to know the difference between Bahrain (where the US 5th Fleet is based), and nearby Qatar which is a different country.

    This may seem only a non-climate quibble, but when one considers how mercilessly some of Mr. Gore’s political opponents would be skewered in the media for any mis-statement, the fact that Mr. Gore is ignorant of the geo-political-military configuration of such a critical region of the world is interesting news indeed.

  6. RockyRoad says:

    From my mining background, the worst thing you can call a guy is a “promoter”.

    Al Gore is a promotor extraordinaire.

  7. Nobody has had the courage yet to ask Gore if he has specific proof of industry money exchanged with skeptic climate scientists for specific demonstratively false, fabricated climate papers, reports, assessments or viewpoints.

  8. garymount says:

    The computer companies Gore is involved with are losing trust by the public:

  9. Bob Tisdale says:

    Wow! It appears as though Al has reached sumo size. He’s gotten very, very large.

  10. Roger Zimmerman says:

    I thought being a “foe of climate change” was a good thing?

  11. pat says:

    Two painfully ignorant frauds.

  12. Doug Proctor says:

    Letterman could have put the boots to him, but that would have angered Gore, and he is too good a guest for that.

    Letterman poked him once. I’ll bet that was all he was allowed. And he probably likes him too.

    Actually, I’ll bet Gore had an agreement about what questions he would be asked. He is always in control, except when getting a masssage.

  14. Robin says:

    The IHDP document I read recently actually explained how helpful it was to have Al Gore as a former US Vice President and Prince Charles as the heir to the British throne and Nelson Mandela revered as a fighter against apartheid globally as Climate Change spokesmen. In fact it identified the why and how it was not about the quality of the movie An Inconvenient Truth.

    It basically recommended trying to turn as many of the high-profile figures that people would be likely to defer to out of reverence for their titles as possible. I’ve always been intrigued by al’s 1990 trip to the USSR. It just reeked of transition planning. Eath in the Balance indeed. How about career advancement? It worked. Just not as far as he wished.

  15. Walt The Physicist says:

    Look at that! May be it means that Mann, Hansen, Gore et al are in the pocket of Big Air(lines)?

    Former CEO of Playboy magazine Christie Hefner appeared on MSNBC this morning to discuss gun control.

    When discussing gun violence in Chicago, Hefner went into a diatribe, explaining how climate change has increased temperatures, therefore leading to heightened levels of violence.

    “Aljazeeragore”?

  18. Don E says:

    I liked that competition between Gore and Letterman on who was doing more for the environment based on how many electric cars they owned. It seems they both own 2 so it was a tie.

    First of all, ARE YOU F*CKING KIDDING ME?! How disgustingly ironic. A First Amendment magnate spewing lies to tear down the Second.

    Second of all, if you pay attention, they’re selling it to the public the same way they did “climate change”, with a lot of the same propaganda techniques and data skewing.
    “It’s for the children. Too many children are dying and will suffer because of this.” Trying to get people whipped up into an emotional frenzy so they’ll go along with whatever obscene measures that are proposed.

    How things have changed…

    I used to watch Letterman daily (many years ago). I remember when the frozen Neanderthal was late-night comedy fodder for a bit…

    Anyway, Letterman did this bit where he said “So you know what Al Gore had to say about this? It’s Global Warming”, followed by his trademarked blinking stare into the camera while the audience laughed. Clearly he was mocking Al Gore AND used to mock the whole “Global Warming” thing too. Now I don’t watch Letterman, since he seems to have climbed onto the whole lefty-greeny bandwagon (which, I assume, is electric and he has TWO of them).

    Too bad. Honestly, there was a time when Letterman was funny and entertaining. Then again, there was also a time when Saturday Night Live was worth watching.

    Doug, Letterman has always ranted on his show against the evils of global warming. A typical entertainer/celebrity take on it without actually looking at the science.

  22. John Trigge (in Oz) says:

    Not only does Al use the power of a small country in his domestic use, it appears he may have swallowed one.

  24. Allen B. Eltor says:

    Al Gore,
    Al Qaeda,
    Al Jazeera -

    who’s countin?

  25. Matt in Houston says:

    Al “Jazeera” Gore is nothing more than a con man. Unfortunately our government has large tracts of our (the People) employees that are complicit in the fraudulent shenanigans. The man is a professional liar like our current President and a whole lot of the rest of our government. Western civilizations candle is growing dim. It is hilarious (not in a good way) that the Gore-acle can sit there with a straight face and spew the absolute pile of bull exhaust in defense of himself and his actions. Disgusting. Like all tyrants he will get his come uppance, hopefully before his agenda comes to fruition. Letterman is just a lacky for the progressive (marxist) agenda, I am sure they had a personal understanding of the particulars that would be under discussion so as to make things look as good as possible for the sheeple.

  26. Random Thoughts says:

    Gore is the poster child for why the Electoral College is a brilliant idea.

    Dude, not even close to a Neanderthal. That was a modern human, approx 5000 years old, if I recall correctly.

  28. R. Shearer says:

    There are probably only a couple of things bigger than Gore’s carbon footprint; his hypocrisy and his ass.

  29. Barbara says:

    ‘There’s a lot of opportunity in this crisis’

    “Never let a crisis go to waste”

    Bleah.

    I stand corrected.

    And I’m pretty sure I meant to put quotes around “Neanderthal”… but I didn’t.

    So anyway, the part still stands that he was mocking al-Gore’s claim that Otzi was found because he thawed out of the ice due to Global Warming…
