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.
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.

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.

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.

Have you inherited the same moral outlook?

+++++++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!!!!!!!!!.

Dear Fair Game,

"idiot", "foolish babblings"', "ignorant", "old man"

Interesting what passes for logic, reason, and evidence in this debate on Anthropogenic Carbon Dioxide Driven Climate Change.

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.
