Eco-Hypocrisy

As Al Gore's new movie tunnels its way into your brain, remember the "action" he actually takes about his own "carbon footprint"...

Every single time Algore self proclaimed president of the world name comes up all I can do is think about this and smile.... http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/northamerica/7852300/Al-Gore-b... Gore behaved like 'crazed sex poodle' with masseuse
A masseuse has accused Al Gore, the former US vice president, of sexually assaulting her at an Oregon hotel during a global warming lecture tour in 2006.

Al Gore’s swimming pool uses the same electricity as six US homes

The National Center for Public Policy Research released a report that tells us Al Gore’s swimming pool uses the same electricity as six average US homes. In kilowatt hours, his house draws a total annual load equivalent to 21 homes — averages 19,241 kWh per month. He probably lives alone now that Tipper and the kids have moved out. This is after he paid $60,000 to add solar panels which provide about 5% of his domestic electricity (Why doesn’t he just go solar, that’d be only $720k, plus batteries).

He owns two other homes.

How Al Gore Fooled The World Into Paying For His Giant Carbon Footprint
Jeff Dunetz …The real reason Al Gore wants you to read his books and go see his movies and even see his lectures isn’t because he is trying to save the Earth from global warming and climate change, but because he’s invested in products that will be successful as long as people are convinced by the climate change scare tactics.

The former vice president’s global warming activism has helped increase his net worth from $700,000 in 2000 to an estimated net worth of $172.5 million by 2015. Gore and the former chief of Goldman Sachs Asset Management made nearly $218 million in profits between 2008 and 2011 from a carbon trading company they co-founded. By 2008, Gore was able to put a whopping $35 million into hedge funds and other investments.

Gore also has a remarkable record of investing in companies right before they get huge grants from the government.

I got into a little passing

I got into a little pissing contest on another site with a "global climate disruption " adherent. I simply asked him to name me ten serious things he had PERSONALLY done to combat global climate disruption.....you know like stop driving your car, given up using plastic,shut off your electricity..etc....His response was that I was attacking the messenger...."geez.....I will tell,you this ,asking them face to face just exactly what they have personally sacrificed for the cause of saving the world is one effective tool.....Try it.......Watching the stuttering cluster f*** response if nothing more is worth the laugh........

Al Gore's an idiot. I've hated him ever since I read Earth in Balance as an atmospheric sciences grad student and realized he was full of shit.

Global warming is most certainly real but his deceptive bullshit has set everything back by a decade because he cut so many corners trying to convince people.

At this point it's just easier to let it happen and then say, "haha told you so" and levy a huge national tax to build a wall to keep the seawater out.

AC....... The thing that I find most amusing is that 99% of the people who are so insanely up in arms about global climate disruption personally do absolutely nothing to combat it ,make not even the most trivial sacrifice for the cause........."What me give up driving my car?" "Huh ,live in an unheated or uncooled home?"
Let's face it the vast majority of these people are on serious disconnect ...... global climate disruption is just something they can feel self righteous angst about.
Algore, sex crazed poocdleman is plain and simply a fraud......and a hypocrite.

Eh, that shouldn't bother you

Eh, that shouldn't bother you.

As much as liberals like to say, "everyone needs to do their part", the reality is that one person really doesn't make a difference - what makes a difference is a change in policy.

I personally hate it when I see people composting their food scraps (as if you can't buy quality compost from Home Depot for a few bucks a bag), because it's a waste of time and energy just to feel good about yourself.

Same goes for carbon production. If I switch from a gas powered lawn mower to an electric mower to pat myself on the back, it isn't going to do a goddamn thing for the planet, except make me look like a smug asshole.

If it becomes more expensive to run a gas powered mower than an electric one because of a carbon tax (or because renewables produce cheaper electricity), then *everyone* will switch and an actual difference will be made.

Change *has* to be systematic to matter. One persons actions are totally irrelevant.

NOW, with that all said, if you're an Al Gore or some figurehead, then yeah, you should try to make an effort to appear at least like you're trying, because of optics. But at the individual level it really makes no difference.

I read a_c straight faced. Like Rev. Algore preaches: Do as I say, not as I do. Leadership by example is way too uncomfortable.

In the meantime, I'll wait for the City of Portland, because it would be so like the City of Portland, to resolve to confront the immanency of the evolving climate's dire consequences by condemning all property within an imaginary, projected flood plain. Sound crazy? They already condemned the waterfront once. The crusaders who preserved the waterfront for fishermen then turned around and chased away the fishermen.

Somehow . . SOMEHOW . . the lawyers ended up with the waterfront. Go figure. With all of it's crystal ball devined wisdom, the City never saw it coming.

DOOMED PORTLAND PENINSULA

Now, keep in mind a_c, there is a former sciences grad student being paid to produce these images. And by now, he's probably realized that he won't sell many more if he stops selling the myth. Don't sell the steak, sell the sizzle. Ever hear that before?

Government Data Show U.S. in Decade-Long Cooling
June 25, 2014
By James M. Taylor

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s most accurate, up-to-date temperature data confirm the United States has been cooling for at least the past decade.

Responding to widespread criticism that its temperature station readings were corrupted by poor siting issues and suspect adjustments, NOAA established a network of 114 pristinely sited temperature stations spread out fairly uniformly throughout the United States. Because the network, known as the U.S. Climate Reference Network (USCRN), is so uniformly and pristinely situated, the temperature data require no adjustments to provide an accurate nationwide temperature record. USCRN began compiling temperature data in January 2005.

Now, nearly a decade later, NOAA has finally made the USCRN temperature readings available.

According to the USCRN temperature readings, U.S. temperatures are not rising at all – at least not since the network became operational 10 years ago.

Not tongue in cheek, and I'm totally serious.

You have to actually understand how many people and how much carbon is being produced.

Once you have an idea of magnitudes, you'll understand that a single person really doesn't make a difference.

If I am on the beach and see a piece of trash, I'll pick it up and throw it away, because if there are 100 pieces of trash, and I pick up one, that's 1%. While that may seem small, it's a pretty significant change. You can make a difference here.

The amount of carbon I save by switching a lawnmower from gas to electric, considering I only mow once a week and that the electricity is also produced by fossil fuels (albeit more efficiently) is negligible in the overall global carbon budget.

Especially when you consider Al Gore's flights back and forth for his own vanity contribute 1000's of times more carbon.

An inconvenient truth: Global temps were warmer when Al Gore won the 2007 Nobel Prize than today, even after the 2015/16 super El Nino.

Meteorologist Joe Bastardi explains: “Al Gore was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize based on warnings of future events — the same future events that have not happened. The fact is that global temperatures from 2006-2007 while Gore was basking in the glory of his apocalypse-driven fame were warmer than they are now, and we are still falling off the Super El Niño peak. Additionally, much of the time in-between was lower than what it was in the run-up to ‘An Inconvenient Truth.'”

Bastardi added: “I am glad Al Gore has his new movie out. It reminded me of Irena Sendler, who he beat out for the Nobel Prize. Because it gave me a chance to write on someone whose story should be known and once again expose someone who has gotten rich off something that can’t hold a candle to the bravery of people in the era that Irena Sendler exemplified…Just what did she do? From this link: “Irena Sendlerowa was a Polish woman who, along with her underground network, rescued 2,500 Jewish children in Poland during World War II. Many of this number were already outside of the Ghetto and in hiding.”

[Climate Depot Note: The graph uses the the global 2m temperature anomaly. There are several different temperature datasets, two satellite datasets (UAH & RSS) and several surface datasets that may show somewhat different temperature anomalies.

Global warming is a hoax. There is no "global warming". That is why it is now called "climate change".

Once you have an idea of magnitudes, you’ll understand that a single person really can make a LOT of money participating in the global warming/carbon credit scam.

Follow the money……..at a

Follow the money……..at a place right close to you somebody is putting up solar panels at YOUR expense and claiming they are saving the earth from.....'global warming'...(which is not happening) ....now known as climate change....and taking your taxpayer dollars.....gladly.

Feds Take Down A $1.4 Million Solar Subsidy Scheme

The owner of a rooftop solar company pleaded guilty Tuesday to conspiracy charges and making false claims to further a solar scheme to fraudulently get $1.4 million from taxpayers.

In the plea agreement to the U.S. District Court in Kansas City, U.S. Solar owner Trevor Dryden admitted he was involved in three fraud schemes, including one to collect state and federal tax credits for solar panels they never actually installed. Dryden’s company was also pocketing rebate checks which were supposed to go to its customers.

Prosecutors claim the government’s losses from the schemes totaled $1,396,956. Dryden, however, only admits to causing $993,506 in losses. A judge is set to determine how much restitution Dryden must pay at a sentencing hearing in June. Federal prosecutors will recommend a five-year prison sentence as part of the plea agreement.

Last September, another one of the U.S. Solar’s owners pleaded guilty to similar charges. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has been investigating U.S. Solar since August of 2013. The Missouri Public Services Commission attempted to audit U.S. Solar’s payment as early as July of 2013.

Even the progressive magazine Mother Jones recognizes that taxpayer support for rooftop solar has become a problem. Mother Jones argues tax credits and subsidies ensure rooftop solar companies aren’t actually helping fight global warming and are just enriching themselves

The magazine claims taxpayer support for rooftop solar is “just helping the utility meet a goal it was already mandated to meet—thus helping excuse it from building more solar capacity itself. In other words, your direct net contribution to reducing greenhouse gas pollution is nil.”

The rooftop solar company Sunnova agrees, saying subsidies and tax credits are “hobbling the industry” by distorting the market and should be allowed to expire at the end of 2016.
Rooftop solar is heavily subsidized by a 30 percent federal and state tax credits for home solar panels as well as rebates. Rooftop solar companies regularly install $10,000 or even more expensive systems at no upfront cost to the consumer, in exchange for simply collecting the profitable tax credits, rebates, and other subsidies. Solar power receives 326 times more subsidies than conventional energy sources, according to Department of Energy data.

Presently, utility companies are forced by law to purchase rooftop solar power at two to three times the rate it would cost to buy electricity from an industrial solar farm.

This is in addition to 47 already known about and eruption would melt more ice in region affected by climate change.

No…..see …it’s the 0.04% of CO2 that will cause the ice melt which will raise the sea level and threaten all of humanity. We really better spend more taxpayer taxmoney to study this stuff….soon!
