In this thread and others, Al Gore gets a pass: he's not a scientist they say, he's just a promoter they say, or he's a politician they say.

And when questioned as to what Gore says, promotes and demands on the part of global warming compared how he himself lives in his mansions, his jets & travel and his SUV caravans to and from his 'events', he gets another pass.

Stuff like that makes thinking people say, hmmmm....

Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

Al Gore is political so it's his job to sell a message he believes in. He took it on because he believed in what the science was saying & portrayed that message. As for the rest of the scientists selling ability, it only amounts to a handful around the globe as it is total alien territory for them.
Yegads! You think I'm talking about a media campaign for all your 'scientists' to "sell" global warming? How about just a march, a letter to the editor, anything to show they are taking it as seriously as you are. What changes in their lives have they made to thwart global warming, and demonstrate it is indeed a "crisis".

As for Al Gore, if he believes in it, he doesn't abide by it.

Lousy spokesman you have there.

But that's something warmists don't talk about.

btw, your last two posts added at least another 14g CO2 into the atmosphere.

How can you live with your hypocrisy?

A bad move. More 'social change' substituting for science is the wrong way to go. Like entrenching Lysenkoism.. or well supported poltiical positions in contrast to the science.

What should be laughed at is the clueless reasoning that is used by the denial. The LACK of science in their 'message' should be disdained.

Al comes from a political family that understands and serves the American people.

He talked about how people are keeping silent because of the aggressive deniers. Search for his interview with Charlie Rose.

If we could only get Obama to STFU, that would reduce CO2 by about 10 trillion cubic liters per year. Not to mention ending his non-stop lies & BS!

lol...does that include his dad, son? You do know his dad was VP at Occidental Petroleum and also served as Chairman of Island Creek Coal Co., don't you? His dad did serve the people in my opinion. Big Al just served himself. Tipper left because he couldn't serve her! Lol

SpaceBlues didn't have any credibility to lose.

He's been running a deficit for years.
