The Earth is warming. CO2 is a GHG. Burning fossil fuels is increasing the CO2 in the atmosphere. Those are facts. Dispute them is you can. Quit whining about Al Gore.
Once again, oh thick one, I'm starting at the basics.

Al Gore is a global warming hypocrite.

That is such a simple admission and it's been well documented.

When you manage the simple, I'll wade into the complex.

WON, LOL. You did win but the SC gave it to bw.

Remember the nobel, though... the SC cannot touch the Swedes!

"APS argued that net metering allows solar customers to avoid paying their fair share of the cost to maintain the electric grid - thereby passing $18 million in annual costs onto non-solar customers." [ibid]

The electricity you sell from your solar panels is subsidized by other ratepayers.

I have a roof full of solar panels & my neighbour, the other neighbour who doesn't just whines about it like you.
Just think if everyone got them, you would have nothing to whine about & everyone is sharing the burden.

If your selling it to the power company at the retail rate, your getting a subsidy from every other ratepayer. You aren't paying for the electrical infrastructure you're using, but the rest of us are.

Well that's going to be life in the new green economy. Of course we get paid a higher rate than what we buy in. It was the incentive to spend the $$$ in the first place. But that's ok, we need the ignorant to keep on being that way and they will always be the losers once carbon reduction is compulsory. That is going to happen as sure as night follows day, whether you like it or not. So you either get onboard or dig deeper in your pockets for your denial.

Al Gore and David Black also invested in green energy companies who received special grants and loan guarantees and made millions from now defunct green energy companies. Al Gore, Mr. Green Jeans himself, has along with his business partner, David Black invested in pharma directly related to the recently enforced ACA law starting in 10/01/2013.....

How convenient wouldn't you say?

SEC has rules on insider trading but look at Congress. We have a cesspool of insider trading and law making from our Congress. Portfolio's of Obama, Clinton, Pelosi, Reid and the rest of the Democratic Party should be reviewed!

OFF WITH THEIR HEADS!

And you have to report it as income on your taxes.

I wonder if local regulatory agencies will get involved. Seems that there's an untapped source for taxing 'mini utility companies'. Not for revenue (of course) but to ensure that the grid is up to snuff for everyone.

Tax increase & not reducing gov't comes from a capitalist. Must mean there are businesses that "motheaten" doesn't like, to break its philosophy.

Al Gore is like Canada's enviro champ David Suzuki.

David is always preaching anti-oil, we should curb back industry, be more enviro friendly, global warming etc.....yet he owns 4 homes.

I have no prob with someone owning 4 homes, don't care if he owns 7, 8 or whatever. But he is a hypocrite to be preaching restraint to everyone else, preaching to stop overusing energy and resources etc, while living in luxury himself. He has also built his empire by fear mongering and doing the opposites himself.

Gee Wiz, now David Suzuki's assets are questioned. Well how about this, all you fossil fueler's better come home covered in coal dust or oil plus live in a 4ft x 10ft wooden shack to have any credibility in anything you have to say.

Like I said, you can't admit a basic point.

Thus more advanced discussion is pointless.

Al Gore is a global warming hypocrite.

Deal with it.
