Global Warming Today: Goracle On Myanmar

I hate the phrase “jumped the shark.” It is completely overused, and used for everything. That said, I’d ask if Al Gore has jumped the shark with this one, but, he probably did that long ago

(World Net Daily) Al Gore has made the pronouncement: Tens of thousands were killed by a cyclone in Myanmar because of “global warming.”

During an interview with National Public Radio’s Terry Gross about his new paperback, the appropriately titled “The Assault on Reason,” Gore said: “And as we’re talking today, Terry, the death count in Myanmar from the cyclone that hit there yesterday has been rising from 15,000 to way on up there to much higher numbers now being speculated. And last year a catastrophic storm from last fall hit Bangladesh. The year before, the strongest cyclone in more than 50 years hit China – and we’re seeing consequences that scientists have long predicted might be associated with continued global warming.”

I was going to go and mention the Bangledesh tragedy in 1970 which killed over 500,000, but, World Net Daily beat me too it. Remember, that was a few years prior to Newsweek and Time, along with many newpapers, saying that a new ice age was coming. Also, remember that people around the world banded together and held a huge concert to raise money for those left alive. Nowadays, people will just expect government to give money, and, instead of helping, they will just be hysterical idiots like the Goracle.

Great tits cope well with warming

Only 47% of Americans believe that the Earth is warming because of Man, which is why Groups are working hard to raise awareness about global warming. The Alliance for Climate Protection will spend $300 million over the next three years on a global warming marketing campaign.

At the NY Times Dot Earth Blog, check out the hysterical, and I mean that both ways, comments by liberals who are divorced from facts, but have a good hold on personal attacks. The article is about McCain’s global warming speech, which, of course, many do not like.

    I’m guilty of global warming…

    I put motion lotion on a pair of boobs.


    When Gore said this did he pass a sign saying “Now entering Jerry Fallwell Country”? Can we now call global warning a religion?

  2. Never been anything other a religion, then they will make it about global cooling in a few years.
