Gore: Climate change ‘deniers’
like ´an alcoholic father’

CNN, by Jake Tapper

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 8/23/2013 4:10:20 PM

Former Vice President Al Gore is optimistic that climate change deniers are falling by the wayside, but the environmental crusader’s recent comments have sparked controversy. In a wide-ranging interview, Gore told the Washington Post that Republicans are growing weary of those who reject the notion of climate change, likening them to “an alcoholic father who flies into a rage every time a subject is mentioned so everyone avoids the elephant in the room to keep the peace.” What impact is Gore’s heated rhetoric having on the climate change debate?

Like other ideologues and fanatics, Al Gore has no place in his private mental universe for simple disagreement about complex and controversial subjects such as climate change and politics. What to normal people is a difference of opinion is to people like Gore heresy, wickedness, or mental illness. People who disagree with Al Gore are not merely expressing different and opposing opinions. There is something morally or intellectually wrong with them. Otherwise they would share his personal beliefs. This mindset is common on the Left. It reflects a grave failure of education and the replacement of thought and reason by fanaticism.

Most Americans have enough common sense to comprehend that computer climate modelling is something new, that its prophecies have frequently proved mistaken, that there is no way to test its hypotheses, and that the pretensions of its practitioners and supporters to the august status and authority of genuine science are, to say the least, premature.

Most Americans also can recognize a snow job when they see one. There are so many hogs rooting at the trough of global warming that they have to stand in line to get their share of the slop. All kinds of agendas are at work in this crusade. It is a kind of religion for some advocates, a political tool for others, and a potential gold mine for others.

The simple and perfectly obvious truth is that we do not yet know enough to embark upon massive, expensive, ambitious and unpredictable remedies for a problem that may or may not exist and for which the remedies may well prove to be worse than the disease.

As was customary when he and Bubba were in the WH, Gore´s epithets and accusations at his political foes end up describing exactly what the Democrat grifters were doing. Any expression of doubt about global warming, er climate change, sends him into an angry, slander-filled tirade sprinkled with paranoid accusations.

If any public figure deserves a pie in his face or a stream of urine all over his shoes, it´s Algore.

A Jacksonville, Florida jury has found Michael Dunn guilty of several counts of attempted murder, but hung on the more serious charges of first and second degree murder, and manslaughter. The facts, very briefly: Dunn pulled into a gas station with his fiancé. Black teenagers in a nearby SUV were playing loud rap music. Dunn asked them to turn it down; they refused. Dunn testified in his own defense, something of a rarity in criminal trials, and told the jury that one of the teenagers, Jordan Davis, then pointed a shotgun at him from a window, threatened to kill Dunn,

Voter ID and Gun Rights

Insofar as it is a case at all, and not merely a political cudgel, the brief against voter ID is simple. Minorities and the poor, advocates charge, disproportionately lack government-issued identification documents, and, as a result of the allegedly arduous process that is required to obtain them, they may struggle in perpetuity to remedy this. In consequence, laws that make presentation of ID the price of exercising a fundamental right are unacceptable — disenfranchising the marginalized, removing their voices from the public square, and imposing obstacles to their equal enjoyment of constitutional protections. Given America’s difficult record on such issues,

This year´s long, harsh winter hasn´t been all bad — the prolonged cold has made incredible ice caves in Wisconsin accessible on foot for the first time in five years, Reuters reports. Thousands of people are walking more than a mile over a frozen Lake Superior to reach the caves, which are carved out of sandstone by waves, according to Reuters. Superior is the world´s largest freshwater lake. Polar vortexes have allowed the ice caves to remain open to visitors because the lake has stayed frozen enough to support people walking across it. People can kayak through the caves in the summer,

Student forced to apologize

A student at McGill University in Montreal, Canada was forced to issue a formal apology for emailing a picture of President Obama kicking open a door–all because some students thought the image was somehow racist. The image was actually an edited .gif, and was shown by Jay Leno on “The Tonight Show” last fall. It humorously suggests that the president may be fed up with press conferences. McGill student Brian Farnan, vice president of the university’s student government, sent out an email with the .gif and the harmless caption, “Honestly midterms get out of here,” according to Legal Insurrection.

The UAW’s Waterloo

The United Auto Workers Union suffered a devastating defeat on Friday, when its attempt to organize the workers at the Volkswagen plant in Chattanooga failed on a vote of 712-626 (53-47 percent). The company had agreed not to resist the organizing effort and gave the union access to the plant and its workers. If the union couldn’t win an election under those conditions, it is a powerful sign of how weak, indeed toxic, unions have become in recent years. If the UAW couldn’t win this election, it seems doubtful it can win any election. To be sure, unions have always been

The golden age of unions is long gone — and for the radio shows that focus on labor and workers’ rights, every day is a struggle just to stay on the airwaves. There are a number of talk radio shows around the country covering - and funded by - organized labor that are still up and running, but like the labor movement as a whole, what remains is a far cry from the time when unions and the concerns of workers were a dominant part of the media landscape. “It’s literally dying on the vine,” former radio host-turned-Democratic candidate for the

Andrew Cuomo (D.) signed the SAFE Gun Control Act, multiple gun companies have left the state. And, now Remington will not build its new plant there.

Water Wars: President Obama visited California´s drought-hit Central Valley Friday, offering handouts and blaming global warming. But the state´s water shortage is due to the left´s refusal to deal with the state´s water needs. Following legislative action last month by Speaker John Boehner and California´s Central Valley Representatives David Valadao, Devin Nunes and Kevin McCarthy, whose Sacramento-San Joaquin Valley Emergency Water Delivery Act was designed to resolve the long-standing problem of environmental water cutbacks that have devastated America´s richest farmland, Obama is grandstanding in California, too. His aim, however, is not a long-term solution for California´s now-constant water shortages that have hit

Americans watching the Affordable Care Act’s implementation are witnessing a government policy debacle that is as large as any in memory. It is hard to imagine a more vivid demonstration of the ruinous consequences of government stepping into a market in which it doesn’t belong. And, sadly, what we are seeing now is only the beginning of the policy’s failure.

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. -- The failure of the United Auto Workers to unionize employees at the Volkswagen plant in Tennessee underscores a cultural disconnect between a labor-friendly German company and anti-union sentiment in the South. The multiyear effort to organize Volkswagen´s only U.S. plant was defeated on a 712-626 vote Friday night amid heavy campaigning on both sides. Workers voting against the union said while they remain open to the creation of a German-style "works council" at the plant, they were unwilling to risk the future of the Volkswagen factory that opened to great fanfare on the site of a former

As recently as two months ago, Senator Mary Landrieu (D-Louisiana) was standing strong behind her vote to pass Obamacare, saying she would do it all again. Fair enough, I thought… when you’re a politician, sometimes you have to take a principled stand – no matter how wrong headed – and ride that horse till it drops. You might be wrong, but at least you’re consistent, and your supporters will likely appreciate that. But as Jim Geraghty noted this week, the Senator’s reelection web site is looking a little spartan these days, and has one very notable omission. For one of the Senate’s

RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. — It’s a day of golf in Southern California for President Barack Obama while the nation’s capital recovers from this week’s snowfall. The White House says Obama teed off Saturday at the nine-hole course at the Sunnylands retreat in Rancho Mirage with childhood friends Bobby Titcomb, Greg Orme and Michael Ramos. Obama is spending the weekend at the estate. It used to be the winter home of the late billionaire philanthropists Walter and Leonore Annenberg.

WASHINGTON — Politics is sometimes the art of choosing the lesser of evils. For Sen. John Cornyn and other GOP leaders, it was better to let Democrats raise the debt ceiling last week than to dig in and risk a federal default. But tamping down a filibuster from Sen. Ted Cruz invited the wrath of the tea party. We’ll find out soon enough whether Cornyn pays a price — or, possibly, emerges stronger and more independent after the March 4 primary.(Snip)To many Republicans, the fight Cruz had picked was the wrong one. Default would have dire implications for the world economy. Even toying

Once again, bitter feelings are being cast in the direction of Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz. With the House passing the “clean” debt ceiling bill and sending it to the Democratic-controlled Senate, it was clear that this particular bill was going to be passed and sent to the president for his signature. But Cruz didn´t want to let Senate Republicans, including Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., off the hook and give President Obama a blank check to once again increase the debt ceiling as we are drowning in red ink. He didn't want Republicans to simply vote against the bill, hiding behind the Democrat majority who were sure to pass it.
