Waking up to climate change

I almost thought it was a dream, nightmare actually, but there it was, live on CBC radio. Winner of the Nobel Peace Prize ... Al Gore and the IPCC. They did follow up with a little proviso that the British Courts have stipulated that students cannot view An Inconvenient Truth without guidance owing to the number of scientific flaws contained in the flick.

So the real Inconvenient Truth is that Al Gore, that mainstay of eco-whackism has scored again. How much more needless pollution, both verbal and literal, will his jet-setting cause now?

Please tell me that I dreamt it all.

Do you know who else won the nobel prize? Kary Mullis. Who is he? He is one of over 18,000 scientists who say Al Gore is full of it. See link:

Nope. Your nightmare was real. Winning the Nobel Prize was perfectly orchestrated, as were the Oscar ceremonies.

Al Gore needs one more award: how about 'The Josef Goebbels Big Lie Repeated Until Unthinking Masses Accept It As Reality Award'??
Big Al should be a shoe-in for it.

The only shame is that I was unable to find a bookie with a line on the Nobel Prize so I could bet that AlGore and the IPCC would win months ago.

Still flogging "oism.org", eh? You'd think scientific rigour would require something a little better than that.

Did Kary decide the earth is just fine and dandy while on an acid trip?

In a Q&A interview published in the September 1994 issue of California Monthly, Mullis said, "Back in the 1960s and early '70s I took plenty of LSD. A lot of people were doing that in Berkeley back then. And I found it to be a mind-opening experience. It was certainly much more important than any courses I ever took."

Apparently so.

...and I guess Al Gore made his mind up about the environment on pot?

The only thing a plant cultivated for 10,000 years has in common with a laboratory accident at Sandoz Pharmaceuticals is that they are currently both illegal.

You know what else they have in common? The people that use them usually go on to do constructive things with their lives. For instance, Mullis invents the PCR process and solves a "core problem in genetics". Whereas, Gore just pretends to invent the internet and promotes a global tax just because we breath.

Gee, I wonder who would know more about how the world actually works? A scientist on LSD or a politician on pot?

There is nothing more organic than environMENTAL bull$hit.

The leftie wingnuts really do rule the world if Al Gore gets the Nobel Prize for his little piece of fiction that amounts to nothing more than a fairy tale.

Actually, the effects of LSD are quite similar to peyote and magic mushrooms - some old world favourites. For that matter, it has been found even more effective than pot for disrupting automatic consensus and enabling otherwise uncreative people to see outside the box. Regardless, Al Gore's face reminds me of the time my friend's face morphed into a rubber Ronald Regan mask while talking on a couple of tabs - a rubber facade bubbling from beneath with repressed torment - scary shit!

Did you pull the mask off to see who it was?

Again, see the following link:

Read it. These are real scientists who stand independently from any organization/gatekeepers.

Ah - the fool's overture of the Oregon Petition again. Wipe yourself with it.

Not only will I wipe myself with it I will repeat it over and over until it's centrifugal force of truth breaks through.

How is it that you have been that whipped? Who are you going to listen to? A high school teacher who couldn't make it in the real world as a scientist or real scientists?

Fool's overture? Your uncle Al's the mozart of "fooldom". Not only did he fail at being president (he didn't even know how the electoral system works), he failed again at delivering the truth.

I'll see your 18,0000 scientists and raise you 144,000 (AAAS & NAS).

AAAS & NAS

NAS Membership Numbers:
"The National Academy of Sciences membership is comprised of approximately 2,100 members and 350 foreign associates"

AAAS Membership Numbers:
Hell, almost anyone can join as long as you pay your fees.

Also, if you actually read (http://www.oism.org/pproject/) the petition website you'll see what a former president (Frederick Seitz) of the NAS actually thinks...
