In Climate Change Debate, Al Gore Plays the Race Card

Former Vice President Al Gore has officially become a permanent resident in the land of kooks and nuts.  Gore, a former Southern Baptist who used to oppose the murder of innocent pre-born children until he (like other former Southern Baptists Bill Clinton and Richard Gephardt) realized he would not have a future in the pro-abortion Democrat Party, has played the race card in support of his pet cult cause, global warming (k/n/a “Climate Change”).

Gore, in an interview broadcast on UStream on August 26, 2011, emphatically stated:

“We have to win the conversation on climate,”

How might one “win” the conversation on an increasingly debated theory?  You would think that scientific evidence would be enough to convince climate change skeptics that this phenomenon is real.  However, when science cannot conclusively prove the validity of your new-age religious belief, then why not try to “win” by resorting to one of the oldest (and most clichéd) plays in the leftist handbook — call your opponents racists.

Next to calling those who disagree with you “Nazis,” the racist label is the most tried-and-true weapon in a liberal’s arsenal.  By this point in his life, having apparently abandoned any semblance of Biblically orthodox faith, Gore is left with a “win at all costs” mentality.  It does not matter whether or not what he says is true (I think there is a Big 10 Commandment prohibiting bearing false witness), Gore is intent on the world converting to his environmental religion.  We should not be surprised at the fervor with which some, including the former Vice President, believe in Climate Change.  The Bible warns of those who will worship the creation instead of the Creator.

Gore, by labeling Climate Change opponents as akin to the Bull Connors in the segregated south, has not only cheapened the fight for Civil Rights in this country, but has shown the world just how deeply he has drunk at the well of the environmental gods.  Too bad for Mr. Gore that he no longer realizes that the well from which he drinks is poisoned.

    Based on your comments in this blog posting, it seems that you do not feel there is a basis for thinking that there is any climate change caused by the significant increase in the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere that is caused by burning fossil fuels.

    It is absolutely certain is that carbon dioxide is being added to the atmosphere at a steady (and measurable) rate by our oxidizing of “ancient carbon” that was out of the system. It is absolutely certain that carbon dioxide is a “greenhouse gas.” It increases the amount of heat energy that stays on the earth as compared to the energy that would stay here if the carbon dioxide levels were lower. It seems reasonable that this should increase the temperatures. I have some doubts about the models that are being used to predict what may happen, but they may actually be wrong in either direction. We are making changes in a few hundred years in the amount of carbon dioxide that apparently took hundreds of thousands of years in times past.

    There may be feedback loops that help control temperatures on the surface of earth that we are not aware of, but any feedback loop will require some deviation from the old point for it to come into play. It is uncertain what this deviation will do to the earth, but there should be no doubt that it will do something.

    Another absolute certainty is that we are going to do the experiment. I find it reasonable to doubt the models, but the change in the earth’s surface energy is certain and there will be results.

    But what are a few hundreds of millions people lost to starvation—as long as they are somewhere else. People should not live where “starvers” have chosen to live anyway. It is almost certainly cheaper to throw a few tons of corn or wheat at the problem than to work on any long-term solution. This is especially the case since changing the way we do things in the US would only slow the progress of carbon dioxide increase by a few years—even if we implemented change.

    Have you noticed the number of windmills between you and Dallas? Every little bit helps.

      Bennett,

      On our drives to Dallas, we have seen the windmills. I always want to stop and take pictures, but alas, I get vetoed. 😉 I don’t think there is any question that climate change is happening. I think the point open for discussion is to what extent is this from man-made causes. I think that climate change proponents would have a much stronger argument if they did not try to “oversell” the science. And, for Gore to resort to playing the racist card shows me that he has lost any moral high ground that he may have had, not that I think he had much to begin with. I do agree that we can do our part, but changing lightbulbs and charging an arm and a leg for them is not my idea of doing our part. Just changed one in my sons’ bedroom a few weeks ago and the think is arleady out. So much for my $5! 🙂 Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Hope you have a great week and God bless,

        I went to Lubbock a couple of years ago. About Sweet Water the windmills started. There were thousands of them over the next many miles. I have no idea how many of them there are in western and northwestern Texas. Between the clear air and the huge size of the equipment, you can’t tell how far away most of them are. (I know that clear air is not a novelty for you, but it for us who live along the Gulf Coast.)

        The Port of Freeport is a major entry point for the blades and other parts that make up the machines. We see them moving out to the north from here regularly.

        Some of the CFL’s last a long time and some don’t. They have expected lifetimes on the box. I have complained to some manufacturers about the life and received replacement bulbs. I think that we should write a date on the base of the bulbs when we install them and them complain if they clearly provide us with less than expected service.

        Do you have any firm ideas about what is causing climate change? It seems to me that if you read carefully the other proposals, they are usually short on data (and logic). My comment emphasized that the CO2 is bound to have an effect and that change is painful–sometimes even deadly for some.

    A few things I’ve found amusing this week on the subject of “climate change.”

    While scientist have not been successful in their search for the “God Particle” they have found evidence that the great big fiery ball in the sky does contribute to the heat on the planet. I’m assuming these will be accepted as “real” scientists.

    And this video shows how ridiculous Al Gore is when talking about civil rights:

      Jenn,

      Thanks for the links. The one from the Glenn Beck show is hilarious. I almost put in my post that Al Gore, Sr. voted against the 1964 Civil Rights act, but that would have been like shooting fish in a barrel — much too easy and the man is no longer here to defend himself. That his son is so obtuse is really quite astounding. Thanks for stopping by. God bless,

      Howell

        The son is not just obtuse but desparate I think. It’s one thing to try to hijack the Civil Rights movement for the sake of “gay civil rights” , but I would think trying to higjack Civil Rights for “climate change” might be a bridge too far.

    Jenn, LOL! Those are hilarious. But why oh why does the chick have to be the liberal? Playing the dumb woman card? (tee hee)

      Lydia, we’ve made that same observation about the liberal chick! LOL! “oh no! Why?” get’s me every time.
