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.
Once again, you can't face facts.

Al Gore is a global warming hypocrite.

As I've said, over and over (and over and over), if you can demonstrate some critical thinking skills and admit this FACT you'll show you can handle more complex issues.

Until then... enjoy Al's hypocrisy.

Al Gore is fat?

Does that demonstrate critical thinking skills?

No, it demonstrates your infantile intellect "over and over (and over and over)".

And just for you...

If one attempts to debate a controversial issue, it's important to know if both parties can have the intellectual honesty and integrity to admit error.

I've been using "Al Gore is a global warming hypocrite" to demonstrate that some here have not the fortitude to admit that simple fact, regardless of how much evidence is provided.

It's amazing that no warmist has ever addresses Gore's hypocrisy. They obfuscate, name call, and engage in all kinds of diversionary tactics to avoid and criticism of "one of their own".

Care to step up to the plate or like the others, get all huffy, and take your ball and go home?

Look at yourself! What a foolish and transparently dishonest spectacle!

You approach to debate and discussion is to take your trousers down and take a dump.

You wouldn't recognise intellectual honesty and integrity if somebody smacked you round the face with them.

You are the hypocrite!

Your intention is to stifle debate, pollute discussion, to shirk honesty and integrity.

Well, thank you: we know your grandfather was derelict in his duty, and thought nothing of fraud if it lined his pocket and served his comfort.

+++++++GOD NOW APPROVES OF SAME-SEX-MARRIAGE!!!+++++++ God has changed His mind on Homosexuality!. God can change His mind on matters if He wants to, there are instances in the Bible where God does just that!. This time is no different. God has certainly been answering the big Gays prayers lately!, with their recent Supreme Court victories and all. God wouldn't answer me, a Straight guy!. You know, I once asked God for a wife, 5 months later, He gave me a wh**e!. I do admit, I did used to blaspheme God a couple years on down before this, but I stopped this. I figured this was the reason God raped me. If God didn't want to give me a wife, He sure as Hell didn't have to give me that rotten wh**e!!!. Because God bestowed this evil upon me, my blaspheming Him returned with a vengeance!!!. I lay it on old God now and I don't care if I do go burn forever, HAHAHAHAHA!!!. I blaspheme God real good now. I do it more then I ever did and I am a might proud of that fact, HAHAHAHAHA!!!...GIVE ME ANOTHER WH**E GOD!!!!!!!!!.

First, Mothra, let me congratulate you on a well executed plan to effectively prove your point.

To those who may have missed this thread's development:
Mothra conducted an experiment on this thread to test the integrity of those promoting the unequivocal consensus of CAGW.
He successfully proved that when faced with an indisputable fact the faithful believers in AGW refuse to acknowledge it's existence.

For those of us who favor logic and reason over irrational fear and personal attacks... Good job Mothra.

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!

Just for Mothra & other Al Gore fans:

So who is telling the truth, cut & pasting celebrity homes on right wing blogs claiming they are all Al Gore's. Probably the same for David Suzuki as well.

Former Vice President and climate change crusader, Al Gore, was in Los Angeles recently for “24 Hours of Reality: The Cost of Carbon,” an annual live-streamed multimedia show dedicated to sparking action on climate change.

He took a break from the action to answer some questions on Reddit AMA, where he was asked:

“What specific things are you doing in life to lower your personal carbon footprint? And what is the biggest one specific thing I as an individual can do to reduce mine?”

Gore responded by saying,“I use only carbon-free electricity. Have 33 solar panels on my roof, seven deep geothermal wells under my driveway, LED lights and highest-grade energy-saving windows, max insulation, hybrid plug-in car, etc. No fountains, btw. What you can do? Make smart choices for low-carbon options in the marketplace, make sure you divest from carbon-intensive stocks; be a smart and active citizen! Let politicians know the climate crisis MATTERS to you — A LOT — that you will WORK and contribute to candidates who really champion solutions — and that you will seriously work hard to DEFEAT candidates who ignore climate or take the wrong positions on climate. Help put a price on carbon in the market and put a price on denial in the political system.”

He also urged everyone to assess the carbon pollution risks they’re exposed to by visiting www.thecostofcarbon.org .
