Still your opinion.
Nope.

Fact.

Al Gore is a global warming hypocrite.

Until you grow up and admit this basic fact, further discussion with you is pointless.

But thanks again for bringing up Gore. I do love holding warmists to at least some measure of standards.

The facts are not at issue.
Opinions are.
Facts presented by an idiot like you may be an issue, because they may not be facts at all, but rather the foolish babblings of an ignorant old man, which in this case they certainly are.

Warmists are incapable of having an intelligent debate if they cannot admit Al Gore is global warming hypocrite.

But if they can pass this seemingly monumental hurdle there's a chance they can have rational discussions.

btw, name calling won't win an points in the 'rational discussion' argument.

One can't have a rational discussion with a vacuous moron.

The only thing to do is to point out he is a vacuous moron.

You are certainly a vacuous moron.

At least you're in good company in this thread.

What's even worse, 200 yrs on still allowed to bump into each other carrying fire arms and not those single shot muskets back when the constitution was drafted. But of course all this makes perfect sense in a crowded 21st century where a government can enforce the wearing of selt belts & no smoking in public buildings in the interest of public safety. But to take my automatic weapon, or force me into healthcare is taking away my freedom & that is something that defies logic.

My great grandfather used to record temperatures for the government from 1911 to 1933. He said they (him and his friends) used to make up numbers all the time because half of the thermometers were broken. He said it was "good enough for government work". He said he could tell within 2 or 3 degrees what the temperature was at any time.

He tended to drink a bit also.

He said the thermometers didn't work very well and were sometimes in the shade as trees and bushes grew. The shaded thermometers were wrong so they just picked a number that sounded good.

No need to worry, these days with technology they can drill into a piece of ice 1000's of years old and determine the temps then anyway.
It makes up for all that poor equipment used in the old days.

Yes this forum is about warming, and it's plain as day no matter what is presented even when you can't understand it you will still dismiss it anyway. However every now and then a post comes in ranting on about big government ruining their lives and we are ready for that too. And the Al Gore obsession just because he is a capitalist as well as a warmist, using the same tools to get his message out as the fossil crowd do. No problems with that either!

The topic is global warming, not Al Gore. Since you apparently have no valid argument against global warming, you must resort to deflection. That is the hurdle over which you so often trip.

The Earth is warming. CO2 is a GHG. Burning fossil fuels increases the CO2 in the atmosphere. Those are facts. Facts that you do not wish to discuss.

Don't worry 'bout the healthcare. No one, who can't afford proper food & heated housing, will be able to pay for the healthcare, either.........specially in the Native Tribal Concentration Camps....... just the way re-pubic-lick-uns rigged it up & wanted it.
