AGW Today: Stay Married, Another Hypocrite, Goracle Pulls A Slide

AGW is part of everything!

Staying married is better for the planet because divorce leads the newly single to live more wasteful lifestyles, an Australian lawmaker said Tuesday.

Senator Steve Fielding told a Senate hearing in the Australian capital Canberra that divorce only made climate change worse. 

Seriously, are you Believers ever embarrassed by these pronouncements?

This week, the City Insider spotted an almost empty case of bottled waterin the back of Mayor Gavin Newsom’s hybrid sport utility vehicle as it was parked in front of City Hall. At least one full bottle of Crystal Geyser Alpine Spring Water remained under the plastic covering.

This from the mayor who in June 2007 issued an executive order directing city government to no longer purchase bottled water, saying the containers clog landfills while the city owns a pristine reservoir in the Sierra Nevada that produces some of the country’s best-rated tap water.

But Newsome didn’t issue the order just about landfills getting filled, but, to stop global warming (which, in all honesty, I agree with. Landfills create lots of methane.) But, Newsome is apparently just another hypocrite.

Now, the Goracle

In the effort to shape the public’s views on global climate change, hyperbole is an ever-present temptation on all sides of the debate.

Earlier this month, former Vice President Al Gore and the Washington Post columnist George Will made strong public statements about global warning — from starkly divergent viewpoints.

Mr. Gore, addressing a hall filled with scientists in Chicago, showed a slide that illustrated a sharp spike in fires, floods and other calamities around the world and warned the audience that global warming “is creating weather-related disasters that are completely unprecedented.”

Mr. Gore removed the slide from his presentation after the Belgian research group that assembled the disaster data said he had misrepresented what was driving the upward trend. The group said a host of factors contributed to the trend, with climate change possibly being one of them. A spokeswoman for Mr. Gore said he planned to switch to using data on disasters compiled by insurance companies.

Oops. Remember, though, Gore has saidit is “appropriate to have an over-representation of factual presentations on how dangerous it is, as a predicate for opening up the audience to listen to what the solutions are,” in other words, lie. And we know that a British court didn’t appreciate the exaggerations in An Inconvenient Truth. But, no worries, the AGW hypocrite of all hypocrites will find another way to scare-monger.

    certainly he is an imperfect human being. Teach no one (except perhaps you?) expects perfection. Do you lead a perfect life according to your own standards ?

  2. John Ryan says:

    And Teach is it hypocritical of you not to criticize our militray for oiing in with the “climahysterical” side ?
