THE CASE for global-warming alarmism is melting faster than those mythical disappearing Himalayan glaciers, but Al Gore isn’t backing down.
 
In a long op-ed piece for The New York Times the other day, Gore cranked up the doomsday rhetoric.
 
Human beings, he warned, “face an unimaginable calamity requiring large-scale, preventive measures to protect human civilization as we know it.’’
 
His 1,900-word essay made no mention of his financial interest in promoting such measures - Gore has invested heavily in carbon-offset markets, electric vehicles, and other ventures that would profit handsomely from legislation curbing the use of fossil fuels, and is reportedly poised to become the world’s first “carbon billionaire.’’
 
However, he did mention “global-warming pollution’’ no fewer than four times, declaring that “our grandchildren would one day look back on us as a criminal generation’’ if we don’t move decisively to reduce it.

PRINCETON, NJ -- Gallup's annual update on Americans' attitudes toward the environment shows a public that over the last two years has become less worried about the threat of global warming, less convinced that its effects are already happening, and more likely to believe that scientists themselves are uncertain about its occurrence. In response to one key question, 48% of Americans now believe that the seriousness of global warming is generally exaggerated, up from 41% in 2009 and 31% in 1997, when Gallup first asked the question.

Climate Change Fraud

 

Bill Maher, who has smoked just one too many joints in his life, once again stuck his hoof in his mouth. On his show "Real Time," which aired March 12, he said Republicans weren't disgusted by cap and trade when Bush Sr. used it to stop acid rain. How he could compare (mix up?) sulfer dioxide with carbon dioxide is on par with comparing skeptical scientists with holocaust deniers. Which he's done. 

 

 

He also said global warming was the ultimate health care issue, and when his guest Amy Holmes fought back with science, Maher did what any alarmist does: Ad hominem attacks. He was also completely unaware about the IPCC's major blunder regarding the Himalayan ice caps melting by 2035, and Ms. Holmes asked the audience to use their iPhones to look it up when Maher scoffed at the notion the IPCC was wrong. 

 

Calling skeptics like Amy as people with their heads in the sand, it couldn't have been more abundantly clear that Maher is the one building sand castles on the beach as the tide comes in.
