Al Gore Admits Global Warming Lie [UPDATED x2]

I've said it before and I'll say it again, the left practices situational ethics. Their causes are so noble (to them), that any means to achieve success is okay--lying especially. Al Gore gave further support to this claim when he said the folowing:

Nobody is interested in solutions if they don't think there's a problem. Given that starting point, I believe it is appropriate to have an over-representation of factual presentations on how dangerous (global warming) is, as a predicate for opening up the audience to listen to what the solutions are, and how hopeful it is that we are going to solve this crisis.

He's serial...I mean serious.

Via Maggie's Farm and Free Republic--both with good comments

UPDATE: From comments left at "Free Republic" (with thanks for the borrowing extended to ancient geezer)

"What we've got to do in energy conservation is try to ride the global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, to have approached global warming as if it is real means energy conservation, so we will be doing the right thing anyway in terms of economic policy and environmental policy."
-- Timothy Wirth, former U.S. Senator (D-Colorado)

"On the one hand, as scientists we are ethically bound to the scientific method, in effect promising to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but - which means that we must include all the doubts, the caveats, the ifs, ands, and buts. On the other hand, we are not just scientists but human beings as well. And like most people we'd like to see the world a better place, which in this context translates into our working to reduce the risk of potentially disastrous climatic change. To do that we need to get some broadbased support, to capture the public's imagination. That, of course, entails getting loads of media coverage. So we have to offer up scary scenarios, make simplified, dramatic statements, and make little mention of any doubts we might have. This 'double ethical bind' we frequently find ourselves in cannot be solved by any formula. Each of us has to decide what the right balance is between being effective and being honest. I hope that means being both." (Steven Schneider, Quoted in Discover, pp. 45-48, Oct. 1989; see also (Dixy Lee Ray in 'Trashing the Planet', 1990) and (American Physical Society, APS News August/September 1996).

"Scientists who want to attract attention to themselves, who want to attract great funding to themselves, have to (find a) way to scare the public . . . and this you can achieve only by making things bigger and more dangerous than they really are." (Petr Chylek, Professor of Physics and Atmospheric Science, Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia, commenting on reports that Greenland's glaciers are melting. Halifax Chronicle-Herald, August 22, 2001)

"A global climate treaty must be implemented even if there is no scientific evidence to back the [enhanced] greenhouse effect"
(Richard Benedict, US Conservation Foundation)

"We have wished, we ecofreaks, for a disaster or for a social change to come and bomb us into Stone Age, where we might live like Indians in our valley, with our localism, our appropriate technology, our gardens, our homemade religion -- guilt-free at last!"
-- Stewart Brand (writing in the Whole Earth Catalogue)"


What do you do about a leading climatologist who won't toe the liberal line on global warming? Why you demand that he be fired!

From Drudge Report:

May 31, 2006

SILVER SPRING, MD – Hundreds of concerned citizens and leaders from across the nation will join Hurricane Katrina survivors Wednesday to call for the resignation of the heads of the National Hurricane Center and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration....

(A)dvocates will demand that NOAA stop covering up the growing scientific link between severe hurricanes and global warming while insisting on real solutions to the problem of global warming....

Yet, despite a flurry of peer-reviewed scientific studies linking planetary warming to storms like Katrina, leaders at NOAA and the NHC continue to claim that the recent hurricane devastation is part of a "natural cycle."

Don't tell these same people that the sun is at the center of our solar system. They may want other scientists hung for heresy.


Scientists Say Arctic Once Was Tropical
May 31, 2006

WASHINGTON (AP) - Scientists have found what might have been the ideal ancient vacation hotspot with a 74-degree Fahrenheit average temperature, alligator ancestors and palm trees. It's smack in the middle of the Arctic.

First-of-its-kind core samples dug up from deep beneath the Arctic Ocean floor show that 55 million years ago an area near the North Pole was practically a subtropical paradise, three new studies show.

The scientists say their findings are a glimpse backward into a much warmer-than-thought polar region heated by run-amok greenhouse gases that came about naturally.

Skeptics of man-made causes of global warming have nothing to rejoice over, however. The researchers say their studies appearing in Thursday's issue of Nature also offer a peek at just how bad conditions can get.

"It probably was (a tropical paradise) but the mosquitoes were probably the size of your head," said Yale geology professor Mark Pagani, a study co-author.

Wow! Forget about getting hot and rising sea levels. With mosquitoes that big we're going to have one serious outbreak of the West Nile virus. Can you imagine the itch that bite would cause? But, isn't one thing funny? Rather than seeing the obvious point that global warming is part of natural long-term cycles in our climate, the left tries to tell us that this should be a warning as to how bad that it can get if we don't start solving GW now. Well, what was Bush and mankind doing 55 million years ago that caused this problem?

See. With the worshippers of the Global Warming God, everything proves their case--even the things that refute it.

You know. With the lying, firing your critics, and the cover-ups, I'd think that we would be covering Watergate rather than global warming believers. I guess the left admires Nixon more than we knew.

One More--

Finally, from our buddy and a self-described global warming expert on Gore's (or someone's) penchant to lie:

Environment II by Mark A. York:
(Yes, that Mark A. York aka Jake Elmore whose site gives his purpose: "Dedicated to bashing the myths perpetuated by the untrained conservative mind on environmental and other political issues facing the world at this critical juncture.")

Swift Boating the Planet, By Paul Krugman

"Al Gore and others who hope to turn global warming into a real political issue are going to have to get tougher, because the other side doesn't play by any known rules."

I haven't read it but I know what he said.

What rules? Lying, firing qualified scientists who see otherwise, scaring people, stealing money for research instead of helping people? It seems that the left has a monopoly on cheating rather than playing by the rule book. (You're welcome for the link, Mark, as much as I appreciate your insight.)

For people who lie a lot themselves, the left seems a little over-the-top about "Bush lying." I guess human rights, democracy, and freedom are not as important as getting government grants and winning elections. Say, what does Real Climate have to say about this?

If a cause is truly worthy, then it doesn't need lies to prop it up.

Woody, no way Yorkie is allowed on this blog... his sentence above should indicate why...

I haven't read it but I know what he said.

hasn't read the article, but KNOWS what it says... riiiigggghhhhhttttt!!!!!!!

I plead temporary insanity.

While we haven't read York's comments, we really do know what he would say.

It's been kinka hot in southern Ohio the past week but it's cooling off right now with rain and a cold front. It hit 93 Memorial Day but tomorrow it is predicted to be in the upper 70's. Global warming or not? Just can't figure it out. How much of it is due to heated gases emitting from left wing politicians?

Global warming alarmists would blame earthquakes on global warming if they thought enough people would believe it.

Oops, too late.

Global Warming Causes Earthquakes

Global warming's surprising fallout

The cause of Tsunami is earth’s melting of permafrost in artic circle due to global warming: Indian Scientists – many more global landslides and earthquakes possible

Tsunamis, too, huh? Well, it will be George Bush's fault when there is another San Francisco earthquake and when a tsunami hits the coast of the states of Washington and Oregon.

Do these people have no shame or sense of honor in reporting the truth instead of scaring with lies for their personal goals?

On a slightly different angle, but still speaking of lies from the left:

Iraq veteran sues Moore over 9/11 film

BOSTON - A veteran who lost both arms in the war in Iraq is suing filmmaker Michael Moore for $85 million, alleging that Moore used snippets of a television interview without his permission to falsely portray him as anti-war in "Fahrenheit 9/11."

Well, if Al Franken wants to write another book on "lying liars and their lies," he won't have to leave his house or studio. He can find plenty among his friends--and himself.

Watch who you insult out of shear ignorance. Anyone who doubts the power of altered weather literally lives in a glass house, wait to be smashed into oblivion. Just ask New Orleans folks. As Shismaref Alaskans.

Comment left on my blog by Mark York to a post about children's activities. The guy sounds disturbed.

Well.....I wondered where 'ole Jake Elmore got off to. I did suppose it was too good to be true that he just decided to take his enlightened views off and share them with someone else more deserving. He was good for a laugh however, even if he wouldn't admit his real identity.

I particularly like how 'ole Jake would swear he was never coming back to G M 's Corner and then within 30 minutes there would be another outlandish posting. Even if he wasn't too strong on logic, there was a lot of entertainment value.

Mark aka Jake became persona non gratis after a comment on Marc Cooper's summarized by this reply:

Worthy Off-Topic Response:

Jake Elmore aka Mark A. York wrote above on June 2nd, 2006 at 8:53 pm responding to G.M. Roper, who confirmed Mark York’s hidden identity, created to circumvent his banning by Marc Cooper: "Roper take a flying fig at a rolling donut. You’re the type of stoollie that gets beaten to a pulp in high school. But something else is eating you now."

For those who don’t know, G.M. Roper has been fighting cancer since January. Mark A. York found it amusing to taunt a cancer victim with the statement that “something else eating you now.”

Mark York, G.M. can’t respond to you at this time and asked me if I would. You have lowered the level of discourse here more than it has even been and could likely be again. It’s one thing to disagree with a commenter’s ideas, which really don’t matter if you’re realistic; but, it is quite the lowest thiing to ridicule and attack a commenter over his personal fight with death-threatening cancer. Maybe you might rejoice in his death, but try not to take it too hard when G.M. wins the battle and lives.

So, Jake Elmore aka Mark A. York–G. M. Roper will emerge victorious over cancer with a renewed life, but your bitterness and hatred have already caused your conscience and soul to die. But, we don’t rejoice in that. We pity you.
