Pumped from receiving the Nobel prize and his recent "green speech" in London, England, where he bored attendees at the cost of roughly $6500 Canadian a minute, today Al Gore addressed the delegates at the UN Climate Conference in Bali.
Al Gore savaged the US government’s “obstructing” attitude and urged delegates at the UN conference on climate change to ignore Washington if necessary to pursue the “moral imperative” of a new global regime.Terence Corcoran notes that in addition to the junk science regurgitated from his famous sci-fi flick, Gore - the white elephant in the room that continues to be an obstacle to rational debate - was to present a petition signed by approximately 240,000 "no-name petitioners dragged from the Internet." Compare and contrast this with the Open Letter to the Secretary-General of the United Nations, signed by over 100 scientists and specialists from around the world, including some IPCC representatives.
It is not possible to stop climate change, a natural phenomenon that has affected humanity through the ages. Geological, archaeological, oral and written histories all attest to the dramatic challenges posed to past societies from unanticipated changes in temperature, precipitation, winds and other climatic variables. We therefore need to equip nations to become resilient to the full range of these natural phenomena by promoting economic growth and wealth generation.cp: Dust My Broom
