Bizzarothink in Goreville

Here’s a bizzare juxtaposition. Thanks to Tom Nelson for spotting this.
Al Gore writes:

This behavior is completely unacceptable. Access by reporters should be as unfettered as possible. This de facto form of censorship needs to stop.

It seems that Mr. Gore is applying a double standard. Note the placard advising members of the press placed outside his own global warming presentation:

Flashback: Gore to press: Stay Out! | Watts Up With That?

First you have to wonder what global warming has to do with a computer security conference (RSA) in the first place, but then the real surprise comes when you find that Al Gore did not allow any members of the press to attend.

Flashback: Gore Bans Press (Again) From CTIA Speech | News & Opinion | PCMag.com

In a highly ironic move, Al Gore has barred the press from even attending his speech at the upcoming CTIA Wireless 2009 conference, the nation’s largest gathering of the wireless communications industry.

Given Al’s behaviour in general, it isn’t all that bizarre. This is someone who thinks it is OK to lie and scare the pants off of people in order to get one’s point across, and that the Earth’s core is millions of degrees.
In this instance, Al is either oblivious to his own behaviour, or thinks people are too dumb to work out that he has double standards; either way it is an insult to the rest of the world.

Gore was instrumental in getting security guidelines passed that allow for such things as “lawful intercept” in data networks. He also spoke at VoiceCon 2008 and many other computer security gatherings. Network security, or better, legislating ways to ensure government has access to all forms of communications, has been a Gore specialty over the years. His working group anticipated, for example, the movement of voice communications to data networks and put legislation in place to ensure government had the authority to monitor such communications and the equipment vendors incorporated mechanisms to facilitate it in their gear.

Actually, the hardest problem with flying over the Deep Horizon oil spill area is the ADIZ. Aircraft flying over that area will cross the ADIZ.
Our aircraft have been mapping that area daily, and air traffic control was a “challenge” until they got used to our requirements. They are used to airliners flying specified and straight courses as they cross the ADIZ.
An air defense identification zone (ADIZ) is an area of airspace defined by a nation within which “the ready identification, the location, and the control of aircraft are required in the interest of national security”[1]. Typically, an aircraft entering an ADIZ is required to radio its planned course, destination, and any additional details about its trip through the ADIZ to a higher authority, typically an air traffic controller.

Now as to this comment on his blog…
First: it’s apparent why he has no comments allowed on his blog… 🙂
Second: Everyone will be excited to know that I sent an email to his office in Nashville via the Climate Project website and I know any day now that Mr. Gore will be sending me a communique regarding this situation. I’ll be sitting next to my keyboard and screen 24/7 waiting to send you all the exciting news of his correspondence to this humble American citizen.

Psychic Larry says that it’s all about money. The Gores’ strategic divorce will be a hedge against the probable collapse of Al’s carbon-trading empire in the near future. If a newly-divorced Tipper dumps her half, ‘on the advise of her financial manager’, it would not send as many ripples through the funny-money market as would an identical transaction on the part of the Gores, as a couple.

Something is amiss with Algore’s original information, or he is as big an idiot as I fear he is.

The FAA has posted a notice to airmen regarding flight restrictions in the area. The pilot should have known full well this was controlled airspace and made an effort to schedule and get clearance to fly ahead of time, not just popping up on the air net and asking for a fly by.
I would like to hear the full back story on this attempt.
When I worked in Emergency Management the “I’m the Press I want to fly over your emergency” attitude was always a problem. They never could understand that they were putting other peoples lives at risk by encroaching on formally closed airspace or even just using common sense in uncontrolled areas.
A responsible news organization would have gotten clearance for the flight ahead of time. It is not as if this is “breaking news” where there was a legitimate question of urgency to get the news out. This has been going on for some time.
There were a rare small number of news chopper pilots we could trust. They usually had prior military experience (ie Vietnam) and understood the concept of air control. They were a pleasure to work with and would even offer help to the emergency services agencies when they were in a position to contribute to the response.
One of them dropped military food rations to my search team and the lost family we had just discovered. Another helped our search team confirm and locate a dead body on a 14,000 ft mountain top as I talked him into the area we had spotted what looked like a man down through a high power telescope. In other cases they have at our request taken specific video or a disaster scene or even on occasion given a third party a quick aerial view of the situation and contributed to the response and recovery operation rather than been a thorn in the side, seeking special access just because they work for some media outlet.
Unfortunately those news organizations are a distinct minority in the industry.
I suspect something has been left out of this tale!

It seems that Mr. Gore is applying a double standard.
Uncle Al is the gold standard for double standard.
“When the operators of Southern Seaplane in Belle Chasse, La., called the local Coast Guard-Federal Aviation Administration command center for permission to fly over restricted airspace in Gulf of Mexico, they made what they thought was a simple and routine request.”
FAA consistently prohibits unauthorized access to the airspace over and around disaster relief areas. In this instance, entry into the no-fly area around the rig is limited to “routine flights supporting offshore oil operations; federal, state, local and military flight operations supporting oil spill recovery and reconstitution efforts; and air medical and law enforcement operations.” There’s a *reason* for doing that — aerial sightseers and media don’t play well with aircraft involved in relief operations. The last thing a helicopter pilot flying relief crews out to a barge or a rig needs to worry about is another helicopter maneuvering in his blind spot, then darting into his flight path so Sky Cam can get an exciting 10-second video clip for the six o’clock news…

In the 70’s I worked in the Libyan Oil Fields in the Sirte Basin. No aircraft, not even company owned aircraft were allowed to fly over or near any oil installation or rig.
Have they no idea of just how dangerous it is? The Gas plant at Dahra in the 70’s used to spontaneously pop and bang regularly without any help from us, and most of the piping and vessels were pyrophoric.
Occasionally, the Libyan Air Force would fly over very low (target practise?) and the company got really mad about it, but were powerless to act. Beleive me, you don’t want to fly over an oil slick to take pictures.

Here’s what I posted on another Blog, earlier. Btw, Hotrod is 100% accurate…:
“Prohibited Airspace is not unusual. Happens all the time around project fires.
Every now and then it becomes a “media event” and news choppers MAY
be allowed. But not without special and I mean special- permission.
Too much stuff to get in the road of.
The last thing they need s some klown trying to get a scoop and the front page of National Geographic..
Back in my Airtanker days, I wanted a Martin upper turret more than once, when there was a News chopper getting in the road at the last second. Imagine coming out of the smoke with a Hughes 500 on your wingtip….” I also this bit:
That 500 driver was on us before we even saw him and he stayed with us through the drop. didn’t get much as most of it was obscured by smoke from the Forest fire.
Shall we say we had a little talk with him at Prescott Airport….

The former biggest mystery in life (How many angels can dance on the head of a pin?) has been knocked off the top of the charts. It has been replaced by: Who’s dumber: Al Gore or Barbara Boxer?
Inquiring minds want to know.

Someone told me that not everyone at WUWT is a right wing crank. I’m still looking for the evidence.”
Maybe that should tell you something about *your* position.

She’s probably already said as much as she is capable of.
Where are the moderators? I get chased for less.

Dont worry. Bio-Diversity is soon taking over, and this CO2 nonsense will be forgotten.
They have sucked a lot of money out of this scare. Time for the next one.
The Norwegian Mr.Solheim, minister of “Department of Silly Talks” is at it already.
(They guy with the smile unsuccessfully imitating mr Aerosmith)
Probably to be rewarded by some “big job” in the UN when enough Billions is given away.
Will he be the next Gore? Lets vote on who will be Gore 2.0!

Here’s another politician making hay over “Climate Change” (and wouldn’t you know it–she’s up for election again)!

Whether it happens to be Gore, Boxer, or Schwarzenegger, they’re all over the cliff on this topic.

Pamela said;
“As to the separation – its gotta be fueled by the cost of living with a zealot.”
Nope! It’s fueled by the fact that Tipper caught manbearpig screwin’ around! Apparently with the ex-wife of the Seinfeld show’s producer.

Are Al-Gore’s solar supercomputers or what? Have they been included in his carbon trade? And my mama used to tell me I was an Internet-addict.
