As the whole theory of Man Made Global warming is starting to look like the sham of the century, Al Gore, its High Priest, has been rather hard to find these days. Today the New York Times has finally found him and allowed the High Priest to ramble on in a very long op-ed called “We Can’t Wish Away Climate Change”.
In the op-ed Gore tries to explain away all the recent evidence that Man Made Global Warming is junk science. Gore scolds us that we cannot wish away global warming and that Some news media organizations *COUGH* Fox *COUGH* are to blame.
It would be an enormous relief if the recent attacks on the science of global warming actually indicated that we do not face an unimaginable calamity requiring large-scale, preventive measures to protect human civilization as we know it.
Simultaneously, changes in America’s political system — including the replacement of newspapers and magazines by television as the dominant medium of communication — conferred powerful advantages on wealthy advocates of unrestrained markets and weakened advocates of legal and regulatory reforms. Some news media organizations now present showmen masquerading as political thinkers who package hatred and divisiveness as entertainment. And as in times past, that has proved to be a potent drug in the veins of the body politic. Their most consistent theme is to label as “socialist” any proposal to reform exploitive behavior in the marketplace.
The man is completely shameless. Gore uses his classic fear mongering that the planet will swallow us whole and he even adds a new touch of shame:
...We would no longer have to worry that our grandchildren would one day look back on us as a criminal generation that had selfishly and blithely ignored clear warnings that their fate was in our hands.
Instead we should let our grandchildren look back on as the criminal generation that saddled them with needless debt all in the name of junk science.
I think it is about time we take a page from that Twilight Zone episode where the little boy can wish bad people out to the cornfield. Al Gore, you’re a bad man, you’re a very bad man!
