Gore: ´Our Very Way
of Life´ Is at Stake

Cybercast News Service, by Elizabeth Harrington

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 5/14/2013 10:16:26 AM

Former Vice President and environmental activist Al Gore said “our very way of life” is at stake because of “our recklessness” on climate change. Gore blogged on Friday that concentrations of carbon dioxide hit 400 parts per million in the Earth’s atmosphere, a warning that if Americans don’t change there will be dire consequences. “Now more than ever before, we are reaping the consequences of our recklessness,” Gore wrote. “From Superstorm Sandy, which crippled New York City and large areas of New Jersey, to a drought, which parched more than half of our nation;

Comments:
Oh puhleeze!! He needs to just shut up and go away. There are a few things going on right now that are a bit more pressing than his fraudulent global warming tripe.

I accidentally left the garage light on last night. If I send Al Gore some money, will I be forgiven for my excessive behavior?

So, in order to protect our way of life, we have to change the way we live our lives. Is that what Gore is trying to say? In other words it isn´t our way of life that Gore and the enviro-nuts think is relevant. It´s who gets to decide what that way of life is.

This idiot has no shame and is one greedy man. How much is enough? He who never has given up one of his polluting things such as his jetting around the globe every day and his mansions which use more energy than some cities. He is not only boring but is a major hypocrite. But he continues to laugh all the way to the bank. No wonder his wife left him. She had standards.

This is rich, coming from a guy who owns a 10,000 square foot house in Tennessee, a 4000 square foot apartment in D.C., a few other chunks of prime real estate, a fleet of SUVs, and a private plane.

Get back to me Al, when you´re living in an 800 square foot apartment and you get around on foot, on a bicycle, and by bus and subway. In the meantime, what do you want me to do--unplug my refrigerator?

Liberals always run a back door challenge to the ultimate power of God. The liberal environmentalists would like us to believe man holds the power to destroy the earth I.e, God´s creation. Kinda makes one believe there´s a battle between good and evil goin on in the world, doesn´t it?

He continues to enrich himself while advocating that we take drastic, unnecessary, economically damaging, and ineffective action to attempt to control the weather. I firmly believe that beyond further adding to his large fortune ("At some point you have made enough"), I think this is his way of punishing us ungrateful slobs for not electing him POTUS.

Gore is a one-trick-pony and this is the only song and dance routine he knows. But it gets him a paying audience and notoriety as there are more than enough gullible dupes out there to keep him fat and happy. Truth schmooth, he be global warming all the way to the bank. I notice when he says we´ve just GOT to change our ways, RIGHT NOW!! he doesn´t say exactly how. Those little details just might get folks to actually THINKING.

Notice how this is 400 million particles on Earth, not just the United States?

America has some of the cleanest air and water on earth.
We´ve been doing our part.

We can stop feeling guilty, and enjoy the fruits of our efforts.

We now also sit on some of the largest oil and natural gasoline deposits on Earth, along with massive amounts of coal. All good energy sources which we need to develop for our benefit.
We also should be developing the ability to burn the oil and coal cleaner so we can use it more responsibily not just simply stop using it because it currently isn´t as clean-burning as we´d like.
I´m sure a few billion thrown at the universities around the country would find solutions instead of the failed solar scandal which didn´t use "buy american".

Challenge the scientific community to find the solutions within the next 10 years.

Trust me, we´re not doomed in the next 10 years so that will buy some time.

What a detestable Marxist propagandist. Every word out of his hypocritical mouth is a deception. I can not think of a more loathsome human than Al Gore, for he would push us all into horrid poverty while he reaps huge economic benefits from our misery.

His way of life, not ours.

When a quacksalver individual of no especial creativity, talent, or social graces parlays political connections into rapid unimaginable wealth, he defines corruption. As the most egregious participant in the worldwide hoax of anthropogenic global warming/ climate change/ climate disruption, Gore is one of human history´s most infamous criminals.

Bernie Madoff, the private sector´s most productive thief, made off with some $17 billion, and has a "pinebox" 150 year sentence at Butner, NC. Gore, whose 2001 net worth of between one and two million dollars has increased several hundred times, envisioned an international trading exchange of paper carbon credits with "assets" of $15 trillion that would ultimately dwarf the world´s securities markets (which, after all, trade in tangible and useful things). Carbon credits would be mandatory purchases by anyone whose presence on earth left a "carbon footprint"; that is to say, everyone, whether the charge is direct or indirect. Gore and other properly situated individuals would sit back and have their house boats floated Everest high on a tsunami of money based on nothing. What a racket!

Not only is carbon dioxide not a pollutant or a poison--it´s necessary for all of earth´s life forms, and the more of it that is in the atmosphere, the healthier everything and everybody will be. The EU bit the AGW apple before the USA did, and are living to regret their impetuosity. Zapatero´s green Spain just hit 27.2% unemployment. It will happen here, too. Gore belongs in Butner with Madoff.

Our way of life is threatened by an enemy that lives in Washington D.C. It is a bigger threat than any foreign power. It is the concentration of wealth and power whose seat lies there. It´s name is Mammon. The demon rules there and corrupts all who go and sit at its feet in that place. It blinds all who look upon it. It perverts all who dwell near it. It shall be the doom of the U.S.A.

Conservative talk radio host and scholar Mark Levin appeared on a taping of Breitbart News Sunday and said that the permanent political class should fear the Tea Party movement, which will only gain in strength in the years ahead. Speaking with Breitbart News Executive Chairman and host Stephen K. Bannon after he keynoted an event honoring the five-year anniversary of the movement, Levin said that the Tea Party has already rocked the political system in just five years because those in it want to clear out the crony capitalists on both sides of the aisle.

House Pressures Obama to Dismantle
Iran’s Enrichment Program
Washington Free Beacon, by Adam Kredo    Original Article

Two top House lawmakers called on the Obama administration Monday to ensure that any final agreement with Iran requires it to dismantle all “weapons-related infrastructure,” including its uranium enrichment program. Reps. Eric Cantor (R., Va.) and Steny Hoyer (D., Md.) authored a letter to President Barack Obama on Monday asking him to ensure that Iran shut down nearly all of its nuclear-related facilities under a final deal. The letter comes as top Senate leaders push a similar letter to the president that was initiated by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), which is holding its annual policy conference this week in

Will conservatives give

Politico reports that Marco Rubio is “seeking to rehabilitate his image with much of the GOP base” by falling back on “staunch conservative positions” such as a “more aggressive U.S. response to Russia in the Ukraine crisis.” I hope that denouncing passivity in response to aggression by our adversaries remains a staunch conservative position. Rubio explained that “many of my supporters maybe disagreed with me on immigration — and disagreed strongly — but they understand that I’ve been involved in other issues that are important for the country.” The concern, though, is not lack of involvement by Rubio on the right

Keystone is a proposed 1,179-mile 36-inch diameter pipeline that will transport crude oil from Hardisty, Alberta,

The Senate will soon vote on President Obama´s nomination of former NAACP Legal Defense Fund official Debo Adegbile to head the Justice Department´s Civil Rights Division. There are a number of reasons many Republicans oppose the nomination, most prominent among them Adegbile´s passionate and continued advocacy on behalf of Philadelphia cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal. But one objection to the nomination has received little public notice, and it involves a quiet but growing controversy over the issue of criminal background checks. It´s not unusual for businesses to conduct a check before hiring new employees. If the check uncovers that the applicant has, say,

Bob Costas joined Bill O’Reilly Monday night to defend his coverage of Vladimir Putin and Russia during the Sochi Olympics from conservative critics. Costas dismissed the whole thing as a “non-issue” and a “flimsy pretext for a controversy.” He said that he was “repeatedly” critical of Putin’s regime and human rights record on a number of occasions during the Olympics. O’Reilly, who defended Costas from those aforementioned critics last month, asked why they would bring up politics at all. Costas argued it was important for the framing of the games, because if they were successful, “it would burnish the image of

She found a sparring partner in the American Enterprise Institute’s Danielle Pletka, who defended the conservative criticism of the president. “Republicans are practically cheering for Vladimir Putin today,” Kohn said at the top of the show’s second segment. “He’s given them a new excuse to bash President Obama.” She went on to describe how Republicans are all over the media arguing that Putin would not be trying to invade Ukraine if Obama was

A new and comprehensive comparison of health insurance options offered by Obamacare versus private websites finds that President Obama´s program offers less choice and higher prices than promised by the White House and leading Democrats. Adding to the list of broken health care promises, the study from the National Center for Public Policy Research found that there were more and cheaper options available on websites outside the health insurance exchange in 2013 than on healthcare.gov and state Obamacare exchanges. The report, "Obamacare Exchanges: Less Choice, Higher Prices,” looked at options available for a 27-year-old single person and a 57-year-old couple in metropolitan

U.S. Supreme Court declines
German home-school case

The Supreme Court has declined to hear a case about a German home-schooling family who is seeking asylum status in the United States. The court rejected the case Monday without comment. Devout Christians Uwe and Hannelore Romeike have been seeking asylum because German law does not permit home-schooling and requires children to attend state-approved schools. The Romeikes and their six children moved to Tennessee in 2008 to avoid hefty fines and possible jail time. The family initially was granted asylum by a U.S. immigration judge. That judgment was overturned by an immigration panel, which said the family was not persecuted and was not eligible

President Obama’s foreign

FOR FIVE YEARS, President Obama has led a foreign policy based more on how he thinks the world should operate than on reality. It was a world in which “the tide of war is receding” and the United States could, without much risk, radically reduce the size of its armed forces. Other leaders, in this vision, would behave rationally and in the interest of their people and the world. Invasions, brute force, great-power games and shifting alliances — these were things of the past. Secretary of State John F. Kerry displayed this mindset on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday when he
