The gospel of Gore

It didn't take long for Al Gore to blame the cyclone in Myanmar on global warming.

Using tragedy to advance an agenda has been a strategy for many global warming activists, and it was just a matter of time before someone found a way to tie the recent Myanmar cyclone to global warming.

Former Vice President Al Gore in an interview on NPR’s May 6 “Fresh Air” broadcast did just that. He was interviewed by “Fresh Air” host Terry Gross about the release of his book, “The Assault on Reason,” in paperback.

“And as we’re talking today, Terry, the death count in Myanmar from the cyclone that hit there yesterday has been rising from 15,000 to way on up there to much higher numbers now being speculated,” Gore said. “And last year a catastrophic storm from last fall hit Bangladesh. The year before, the strongest cyclone in more than 50 years hit China – and we’re seeing consequences that scientists have long predicted might be associated with continued global warming.”
I'm convinced. Global warming is clearly a reality. And the cyclone he mentions that hit China some 50 years ago, that also occurred because of global warming. As did all previous cyclones on record that led to massive damage and deaths. The solution is to empower the government to control the weather much like it does the economy.

More Gorebots at work:

See the video by MSNBC
Small Dead Animals story title:
March of the Penguins

A must-see video of a brave young Brit at the North Pole - complete with penguins!

Note: MSNBC has updated the video but small dead animals still has the original oopsy moment.

I'm sure that, if you dig deep enough, you will find that Al Gore invented the world about 50 years ago, some time around when he was born. He invented it so he could go on to invent the internet, which would lead to laptop computers on which he could produce a Keynote presentation to advertise his other invention - glowball warming.

For non-Mac users, Keynote is like PowerPoint, only way more cool. I think Al Gore invented it too.

I'm shocked that Big Al hasn't figured out a way to link the recent earthquakes and volcanic eruptions to glowbal warming. Come on Al, just make it up.

Well, I'm sure Al Gore will soon enlighten us all. Just give him a few more days.

Irena Sendler - nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize last year - it was won by the not-so-great Goracle.

Her story here:

Let's see. Gore makes up data, gets other "facts" wrong, uses Hollywood's computer-generated footage of Antarctic ice calving (see The Day After Tomorrow) in order to help create global warming hysteria - and they give him the Nobel "Peace" Prize.

On the other hand, all Irena Sendler did was rescue about 2500 Jewish children from Nazi killers. Nobel people should hang their heads in shame. What a joke of a prize!

Obesity adds to global warming
"Obese and overweight people require more fuel to transport them and the food they eat."

Stay tuned for the Gorebots to announce a cull of fat people...I mean, we have to save the planet, right?
