Al Gore Rant
August 9, 2011 by USA Post
Al Gore Rant, Al Gore is back – and he is angry. Former U.S. Vice President recently went on a profanity-laced tirade during a speech at the Aspen Institute, calling for “bulls ** t” climate skeptics said to have “polluted” the public debate on global warming.
The problem, Gore said, is that a small number of vocal skeptics have spread misinformation about climate science – a tactic that in comparison with the efforts of tobacco companies to minimize the dangers of smoking.
“Some people are exactly the same – the name that you can download a list of their names – are involved in this,” Gore said on Thursday. “And what do pseudo-scientific Pagan pretending to be scientists to put the message:” This thing of climate, which is nonsense man-made CO2 does not trap heat that can be volcanoes … “Bullsh ** t!” Maybe the sunspots. Bullsh ** t! “It is getting warmer. Bullsh ** t!”
These skeptics have been so successful, Gore said the public and political debates on climate change have been delegated to a cycle of partisan bickering. “It’s not acceptable in mixed company, ie the company in both parties, to use the word climate Godd ** n,” he said. “It is not acceptable. They have polluted to the point where we can not agree on it.”
The speech is the latest step in a forceful return to the stage for Gore, who had kept a low profile after a series of negative publicity in 2010. Gore and his wife announced last June that they divorced after 40 years of marriage, and Gore then underwent a process in which he was accused of sexually assaulting a masseuse (he was acquitted after the charges). Apart from several states in low-profile appearances, Gore became scarce for most of late 2010 and early 2011 – echoing his self-imposed exile after the 2000 presidential election – but the Nobel Peace and Oscar winner apparently could not stay quiet any longer.
In June, Gore wrote a scathing 7,000 words essay for Rolling Stone, which called Obama not to lead the nation and the world in a battle against climate change. The work attracted international attention for Gore, and helped boost growing anxiety among environmentalists that American politicians have pushed global warming to the background. And now, as his diatribe against the climate skeptics is news around the world – which already “lit up the conservative blogosphere this weekend,” reports ClimateWire – Gore is once again positioned as a leading voice in activism climate, which has struggled to gain traction in his absence.
