Gore: Climate skeptics are peddling ‘bulls–t’

Al Gore is using this hot summer to turn up the heat on climate skeptics.

The former vice president angrily denounced “bulls–t” from climate skeptics whom he accused of emulating the disinformation tactics once used by the tobacco industry.

Real Aspen reported on Gore’s comments at an Aspen Institute forum Thursday and included an audio snippet on its website.

Gore said:

The model they innovated in that effort was transported whole cloth into the climate debate. And some of the exact same people — by name, I can go down a list of their names — are involved in this. And so what do they do? They pay pseudo-scientists, to pretend to be scientists, to put out the message: “This climate thing, it’s nonsense. Man-made CO2 doesn’t trap heat. It may be volcanoes.” Bulls–t! “It may be sun spots.” Bulls–t! “It’s not getting warmer.” Bulls–t!

And there are about 10 other memes that are out there, and when you go and talk to any audience about climate, you hear them washing back at you. The same crap, over and over and over again … There is no longer a shared reality on an issue like climate even though the very existence of our civilization is threatened. People have no idea! And yet our ability to actually come to a shared reality that emphasizes the best evidence … It’s no longer acceptable in mixed company, meaning bipartisan company, to use the goddamn word “climate.”

  1. gore needs to be arrested, put on trial, locked away for fraud,
    all his victims properly compensated, his fraudulent scientists unlicensed,
    and his rothschilds buddies treated the same way.

  2. When Al baby points a finger at climate skeptics, there are 3 fingers pointing at him. What a complete money grubbing bankster FRAUD. This entity is vomitus.

  3. Isn’t Al Gore who consulted with pseudo-scientists and got his “wise answers” from? I think this guy has been sleeping on the wrong end of the bed all this last while. The information I have researched stem from credible scientists with hard evidence, climate change is not man made. But what I do think is, that humans have polluted the earth to the extend that it has become toxic to live on in good portion of it. Maybe he’s getting the logic mixed up in his “noodle”. Poor man,too self centered in his own ambitions that he cannot see straight, but believes he does!!! And those are the nuts, like him, he believes, we should follow. What a twisted dreamer!!!! Well soon he will wake up to his own nightmare,cos we all have to face our demons some day!!!

  4. I mock you every chance I get Al Gore mister there is a carbon problem and my solution is to burn MORE carbon, tax it, and start up a new PONZI cap and trade system. WE ARE NOT THAT STOOPID.

    Maybe you are.

    If there is a problem here are 2 suggestions:

    1) use the solar energy that is FREE
    2) plant more trees to sequester the carbon


    You are a coward and a sub-human goon clone troll mofo clown. And a slave.

    • True! If they want to do something about climate, then stop the wars!

  5. Ben’s post was interesting indeed.

    Also liked what homegrwn said about hypocrisy on Algornone’s part. He wants all this new, toxic, expensive stuff foisted, let’s see him go by such rules. Private jet flights: outlawed for Algore; it’s completely inefficient to expend that kind of fuel on a very few folks, and for what? …

    Algore’s electric bill? I’ll bet he spends in a month what I MAKE in a year. Cut that by 85%, Al, Baby, and maybe we can have a conversation about your fears. Obviously, YOU don’t believe it, so why should WE?

  6. Last week I saw an interesting docu on european TV but I missed the beginning. German and Scandinavian scientists found cosmic rays hitting the top of the atmosphere seed clouds because of the disturbance they make when they strike. To check the finding, they reasoned that if it’s true, the Earth has more clouds each time it crosses the dense arms of the galaxy where more stars shoot cosmic rays.

    The Earth revolves every 260 million years around the Galaxy and it has four arms, so temperatures (inferred from fossils) should have dropped every 65 million years. Then temperatures climbed when our planet travelled space with less stars between the galactic arms. The measurements fit the theory perfectly over the last 400 million years if I recall.

    Now we are between two main arms of the Galaxy, but within a tiny spur of a galactic arm where star density is a bit higher; more cosmic rays seed more clouds. Clouds reflect more sunlight so the planet cools now, it didn’t even have polar caps during most of its past. In conclusion the weather has nearly nothing to do with CO2, but a lot with radiations from the Sun and other stars. Micrometeorites seed clouds, too.

    The scientists had to wait 16 months before their researched was peer-reviewed, without explanation for the delay. What they found scared the others. Now I want to see how Al Gore blames cosmic rays on us, and how he taxes them.

    • The difference in temperature was 5° to 10° Celsius.

      • Great post Ben, very interesting.

        The government through the Department of Education and NASA brainwashed everyone into believing the CO2 myth…. the media and the government completely rewrote history. I am a product of the Clinton/Gore era, and it makes me sick to think I actually listened to these idiots… shame on my teachers for ever teaching me that pseudo-science.

        • Add to that, of course, the UN………

          The sad thing is that climate change is occurring… and its’ effects are hurting third world people… so what do the governments do?? they set up Carbon markets which further hurt the poor and the middle classes, they don’t do a damn thing to solve any problems.

          Carbon market… what a f*cking joke.

  7. I always thought that the sun determined our climate and seasons lol?

  8. This disgusting gasbag is one of the biggest hypocrites around. When asked if he would give up beef because according to his followers it is a big contributing factor to his global warming BS, of course he said no. Al Whore needs to go back to his Calif mansion and stfu.

  9. manbearpig is funny as hel. He shovels out bullshit by the truck load and accuses others of the same thing.

  10. It’s quite simple mr Gore, show us EVIDENCE that humans are contributing to global warming.
