Gore ejects Fox as Climate Reality Project support wanes

From Breitbart:

Gore-loses-Fox

Confirmed. Maggie L. Fox is on the out at Gore’s CRP. Here is the “resignation” letter sent to the mailing list. Name of recipient redacted.

The Climate Reality Project

Dear XXXXXX,

As a member of the Climate Reality family, I wanted to share with you some recent personal news.

I was honored to join The Alliance for Climate Protection’s efforts to fight for comprehensive climate legislation five years ago. And thrilled to then lead the organization through an important transformation to The Climate Reality Project. Faced with the realization that the well-funded and pervasive climate denial industry was winning the broader cultural battle, The Climate Reality Project took up the mantle to dispel doubt and spread the immediate reality of climate change with innovative organizing and communication initiatives designed to transform the cultural conversation. This spring, after an exceptional tenure at the helm of this burgeoning organization, I will be stepping down as President and CEO.

Over the past three years, we have operated with a start-up mentality as climate entrepreneurs, calling out deniers, while also connecting the dots for individuals seeking to understand the reality of climate change and its impact on their everyday lives. We have developed global online events including the annual 24 Hours of Reality, released cutting-edge digital tools such as Reality Drop and What I Love and formed new and effective partnerships with communities affected by climate change – from winter sports lovers to mothers to young people with the critical help of tech enthusiasts and the marketing and advertising industry. We have also invested in growing and empowering a powerful group of 6000 global leaders in over 100 countries acting as change agents and members of The Climate Reality Leadership Corps.

This has been one of the most energizing and exciting portions of my career. I am inspired every day by the talent, diligence and passion our staff brings to this important work. And, I also feel it is the right time in the organization’s growth for me to help Chairman Gore and the Board find a new leader to take the cultural conversation to the next level.

I’d like to thank Chairman Gore for his incredible, visionary leadership on climate change and the Climate Reality staff and Board as well as our supporters for all that they do every day to make a difference. I am looking forward to carrying all I have learned from this fascinating journey onto creating a sustainable world that keeps faith with our children, grandchildren and all future generations.

It has been an honor and a pleasure to work alongside you. In March, I will be in Johannesburg to train another class of Climate Reality Leaders to join the Climate Reality family. I look forward to following their great work and continuing to see the impact that all of you will have towards destroying denial worldwide and finding solutions to the climate crisis.

All the best in the New Year,

Maggie L. Fox

President and CEO, The Climate Reality Project

Maybe she is going to join the real reality project.

Chairman Gore made me immediately think of Chairman Mao.

Puke.

Crosspatch, you have to be able to recognize reality to join it.
She gave no indication of recognizing the boot on her posterior.

Amazing.
It must be infuriating that not only do sceptics receive negligible funding, but green funding for projects like the $1.5m Spirit Of Mawson comedy only serve to fuel the sceptical argument.
Are green dollars the sceptics biggest, albeit indirect, source of accidental funding?

“Chairman Gore made me immediately think of Chairman Mao.”
I, too, immediately thought of Chairman Mao as did Alan Robertson (9:26 am). I thought these guys had all engaged top notch image, PR and communications consultants to wage the war against the mighty(?) denial machine. They must select them from the lefty side of the spectrum.

Heh, time to step down indeed.

“Faced with the realization that the well-funded and pervasive climate denial industry”. I would love to know where this industry is? The fact is that other than on this blog, and a few other blogs, I hear vurtualy no “climate denial”. The MSM is firmly on the CAGW side. If there was all these funds to be had, why are people like Anthony not very wealthy (like the CAGW crowd).

“Destroying denial”
What a pleasant bunch of folks.

“Chairman Gore ” , love it.
As soon as someone describes their views as “reality” or calls themself a “realist” (ie I must be right) , smell a small putrid rat.
Would you trust a newspaper that called itself “Truth” ? (Pravda for example)

John Greenfraud

Thanks for your service comrade, now please step in front of the bus.

Al Gore the climate whore. Scumbag…

Think she wrote it or just signed it? “… look forward to following your GREAT work …”
I never use the word “great” anymore except in sarcasm because it is so universally used by politicians with their limited vocabulary …. likely not true but why do they overuse that word?

Greg Goodman

I suspect the “Chairman Gore ” bit is a knife in the back after a less than voluntary “resignation”.

Not a word about bringing forth facts and science. Cultural conversation? Is this a travel agency or a yogurt club?

“impact that all of you will have towards destroying denial worldwide”
The face of cult hate, 2014. I was thinking more of Jonestown as well as Emmanuel Goldstein;
“with the realization that the well-funded and pervasive climate denial industry was winning the broader cultural battle, The Climate Reality Project took up the mantle to dispel doubt and spread the immediate reality of climate change with innovative organizing and communication initiatives designed to transform the cultural conversation.”
About “science” right?

It is unclear exactly why many climate change organizations are installing new executives, but it appears they are following the professional sports paradigm: When a team loses more than it wins, you can’t fire all the players, but you can fire the coach.

Yeah, it all depends on whose Fox is Gored.

Memo to Maggie: I’m Spartacus and I’m not well funded. Also, you can swap out denier with science to help see the fallacy of this anti-science diatribe. Science might survive in the long run, but I’M not so sure about the middle class that ultimately funds the overlapping layers of carbon policy fraud, like direct and indirect carbon tax, transfers of wealth schemes, and fraud-based budget items from already chronic deficit spending regimes.

Faced with the realization that the well-funded and pervasive climate denial industry was winning the broader cultural battle, [Now isn’t that nice to hear]
The Climate Reality Project took up the mantle to dispel doubt… empowering a powerful group of 6000 global leaders in over 100 countries acting as change agents and members of The Climate Reality Leadership Corps.

What that really means is the real goal is to train manipulators to take away the freedom to make our own decisions. I am surprised she used such a key prhase

What The Heck Is The Alinsky Method?
In the book, “Educating For The New World Order,” the author, Bev Eakman points out repeatedly the necessity of the educationists to preserve the ILLUSION that there is: “Lay, or community, participation in the decision making process, while in fact lay citizens are being squeezed out.”
It is interesting, and EXTREMELY important to Americans, both as parents and as citizens, to clearly understand just HOW the “squeezing out” process takes place. It is a well defined, if not well perceived, process known as the “Alinsky Method” (which was derived from a procedure named as “The Delphi Technique.”) This method of manipulating people is based on the fact that people in groups tend to share a common knowledge base and display certain identifiable characteristics known as “group dynamics.”
“Change Agents” or “Facilitators” appear to be acting as organizers, “allowing” each person in the group to express their concerns about some program or policy under consideration. While this process is going on, people are urged to make lists or form into task forces. The Facilitator carefully notes which members of the group are leaders, which are “loud mouths” and which may be easily swayed to different viewpoints.
At a certain point, the previously friendly Change Agent begins to act as “devil’s advocate,” becoming an agitator. The process involves playing one part of the group against another, the “divide and conquer” technique.….
The “targets” of such manipulation rarely, if ever, realize how they are being manipulated. If they do suspect, they generally have no idea how to defeat the process.
This method is being used at all levels of government to force meetings toward PRESET conclusions. There are three steps to defeating this process….

Thank goodness more and more people are figuring it out. Farmers/livestock owners, many of whom are considered to be solidly in the left’s pocket figured it out in 2009 Prepare to be Delphi’d!
So have other groups. Building Consensus AKA You’ve Been “Delphi’d” ! …School, city or county public meetings are led by so-called “facilitators” who have been trained to turn the public to a pre-determined outcome and marginalize the final few they haven’t ‘rolled’ to their position.
I am reminded of an alleged David Rockefeller Quote

This present window of opportunity, during which a truly peaceful and interdependent world order might be built, will not be open for too long – We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order.

Looks like that “window of opportunity” is closing in as fast as the ice did on the Ship of Fools.
This does not mean they are by any means defeated, it just means the soft pedal approach, getting us to “buy in” to our own enslavement has not worked. I am not looking forward to the next installment.

“The Climate Reality Project took up the mantle to dispel doubt and spread the immediate reality of climate change with innovative organizing and communication initiatives designed to transform the cultural conversation.”
Scientific or evangelical? You decide.

John Boles

What a crazy and vague notion, “climate change” and that somehow CO2 can cause climate to change in a bad way without an intermediate warming step. And then the warmists always blame those sinister “deniers” with making their noble efforts unravel. The language and terms they use are chilling, and so is the cold weather here in the USA.

I could not read it all I was getting ready to jump up and yell yes YES lead me to the LIGHT!!!!.

albertalad

Hhmm – let’s see – here in the climate denial industry it cost a lot to bring down that Polar Vortex from the North Pole. But those of us in the oil sands, or climate denial industry, sorta thought it was time y’all south of the border had an intimate understanding of regular Alberta weather. You’re welcome! Don’t mess with Canada. We have the pole and are prepared to use it – Lol!

davidmhoffer

Anthony;
In consideration of her need to obtain future employment, and her vow to continue to fight the climate crisis, I think it would be a most gracious gesture on your part to allow her to promote her skills and pursue her objectives by appearing on the number 1 science site in the world as a guest author.
What better way could she have to both invigorate her career and educate thousands upon thousands of skeptics at the same time?

cnxtim

Hi sweetheart, on the trip to Jo’burg, don’t forget your tinfoil hat.

albertalad: considering the controversy about the pole this year, that was a great comment.
I wonder how many others realize that Santa was officially granted Canadian citizenship last month? Because, like, that’s just as urgent and real as any climate issues…

Steve from Rockwood

I loved this part:

This spring, after an exceptional tenure at the helm of this burgeoning organization, I will be stepping down as President and CEO.

This sentence should be written by the Chairman (no, not Mao) and not in first person singular. She is really saying “boy was I great, and now I’m leaving”.

George Lawson

She forgot to add that with no global warming for 17 years; record ice at the poles, the polar bear scam having been sussed, and with record cold in the US northern states, the bogus fears put out by The Climate Reality Leadership Corps which has made us so much wonderful money over recent years is now no longer sustainable.

Doesn’t scare me at all. Not at all. Really.

The rats are deserting the sinking ship. It is only the start but do not let those who depart forget the damage they have inflicted on our economies and lifstyles.

It was -26 deg C at my house in Southern Ontario this morning. You’ve got to focus that pole a bit better. Nice job on Florida though. I think they’re feeling the full effect of Global Warming now 😉

They just won’t give up on that “well funded” nonsense, will they? Normally if you repeat a lie often and long enough it becomes the truth but this may be an exception.

Heh, time to step down indeed.
Site Info: climaterealityproject.org

I’m only casually acquainted with evaluating website metrics, but I found several interesting things comparing the reference above with with the Alexa ranking for wattsupwiththat.com:
climaterealityproject.org (henceforth “CRP”) since mid-2013 gets a huge percentage bump in visits via search engines (from basically zero up to 35%). Wattsupwiththat.com (henceforth “WUWT”) by contrast bumps along at around 5% with peaks to around 10%. I conclude from this that WUWT is much more a “destination” site than CRP — most people end up at WUWT because they start out to go there, rather than casually follow a link off Google.
68.2% of CRP’s visitors are from the United States, compared with 40.9% for WUWT — WUWT has more worldwide appeal and reach than CRP. This is interesting in light of the claim that CO2-induced warming is a global problem about which there is a 97% consensus among scientists all over the world. You’d think a site created with the personal imprimatur of the world’s best-known proponent of global warming theory would attract a little more attention outside the US.
CRP has both fewer daily page views per visitor (2.0) and less daily time on site (2:32) than WUWT (3.18 and 9:43 respectively). Also both figures for CRP are down considerably (23.7% and 17%) from the previous 3 months; WUWT page views are down slightly but time on site is up a bit (4.8% and 4%).
There was too much missing data in the visitor demographics section to make any meaningful comparisons, plus “medium” was the best confidence claimed for any demographic stat.
1013 other sites linked to CRP vs. 5,196 sites linking to WUWT.

C’mon guys, you must spot the irony from her?
Not only the Chairman Mao, sorry Gore, part but much of the rest (loosing the Cultural Battle against the well funded denial machine, I switched back and forth between WUWTV and 24 Hours of Reality and you would have to be blind not to see who was well funded) certainly must be read as a low and well-aimed kick at the guy who oversold, cashed in and then refuse to fund what he reperatedly said was really, really, really, very , very, very important. All the way up there with life and death.
Short of telling the stary eyed volonteers we were all fooled (which would cost her the severance bonus) this is about as clear as it can get. She is probably still a AGW- worrier if no longer a warior.

Stephanie Clague

“and spread the immediate reality of climate change with innovative organizing and communication initiatives designed to transform the cultural conversation”
These whack jobs dont do ‘self awareness’ do they? “cultural conversation” Where do they get these people from? The very last thing these babble merchants want is a genuine conversation unless it is a one way indoctrination and goes 100% their way, these people would fit very nicely into the Maoist cultural revolution. The same fanaticism and pseudo intellectualism poorly covered by 1984 newspeak. One of the good things to come out of the collapse on the man made global warming fraud is people like her are becoming an object of derision.

Sean

The need to fire Mother Nature. She’s not a team player. She refused to sign off on the mission statement to support the growth objectives of upper management.

She left out a word – Assignment – Climate reality Assignment project,
And yes it is.

KNR

While now we can look forward to her being ‘deleted ‘ from official photographs, shortly followed a quick history rewrite so in fact they never worked for CRP in the first place, to claim otherwise is to be in ‘denial ‘

RockyRoad

You know they’re in trouble when they re-name their meme to “Climate Change”, the status quo, and STILL can’t gain any traction.
People aren’t stupid, Mr. Gore.
At least, the “Deniers” aren’t!

Finland is part of Russia. It just refuses to recognize it. The Russians tried to explain it during the Winter War but the Fins refused to listen.

@DirkH – Those Finns can be obstinate! 😉
