GOP should seek fraud charges against Al Gore

Al Gore -- Cashing in on climate fear for 25 years

goreiceAs reported by Michael Bastasch in The Daily Caller, Democratic operatives responsible for creating their party’s platform are calling for the Department of Justice to investigate companies who have misled shareholders and the public about global warming science.

The draft will be submitted to the full platform committee for approval later this month.

The platform position follows legal actions against ExxonMobil by attorneys general from California, Massachusetts, New York, and the Virgin Islands which demand that the company turn over decades of correspondence with a lengthy fishing trip listing of other suspected climate crisis skeptics including various conservative think tanks.

Some Republican lawmakers and attorney generals are pushing back, warning in writing that “If it is possible to minimize the risks of climate change, then the same goes for exaggeration” . . . “If minimization is fraud, exaggeration is fraud.”

So yes, what about Al Gore? According to Bloomberg his net worth of about $1.7 million after leaving Congress now likely exceeds $200 million, a fortune gained by manufacturing and cashing in on man-made climate fright.

Ten years ago, the Goracle told an AP reporter during the 2006 premiere of his “An Inconvenient Truth” science fiction horror movie, “unless drastic measures to reduce greenhouse gases are taken within the next 10 years, the world will reach a point of no return.”

Yet despite “record high” atmospheric CO2 concentrations, other than entirely natural 1998 and 2015 El Nino ocean spikes, satellites goreliedhave recorded no statistically significant global warming in nearly two decades.

Gore’s 2012 prediction that “dirty fossil fuel” is causing “dirty weather” that “is happening all over the world with increasing frequency” is inconveniently false as well.

No category 3-5 hurricanes have struck the U.S. coast since 2005, setting a record lull since 1900. And both NOAA and even the UN’s alarmist IPCC have admitted that there has been no increase in the severity or frequency of droughts, floods, thunderstorms, or tornadoes in decades.

Al repeatedly predicted during the mid-to-late 2000s that Arctic Ocean would be ice-free by around 2013. Yet by 2014 that ice was even thicker and covered a larger area than when he originated that prophesy. Meanwhile, the Antarctic ice mass has been steadily growing since first recorded by NASA satellites in 1979, and 2013-2014 expanses exceeded all previous measurements.

In 2007, British high court Judge Michael Burton ruled that Gore’s film could only be shown to students on the condition that the presentations included guidance notes pointing out errors “in the context of alarmism and exaggeration.”

The judge entered several examples on the record to illustrate why the movie’s “apocalyptic vision” was political, and did not represent an impartial scientific analysis of climate change.

Regarding alarm about disastrous flooding due to melting of either West Antarctica or Greenland, the judge observed: “The Armageddon scenario he [Gore] predicts, insofar as it suggests that sea level rises of seven meters might occur in the immediate future, is not in line with the scientific consensus.”

As for the “documentary” warning that global warming would shut down the “ocean conveyor” process by which the Gulf Stream is carried over the North Atlantic to Western Europe, the judge cited an IPCC assessment finding that this scenario is “very unlikely”.

While there was general scientific agreement that there is “some connection” between rises in CO2 and temperatures over a period of 650,000 years, this did not establish “an exact fit” asserted by Gore.

The judge found direct attributions of a disappearance of snow on Mt Kilimanjaro, the drying up of Lake Chad, or Hurricane KatrinamountK devastation of New Orleans to human-induced climate change have not been scientifically established.

These events are more likely tied to natural regional climate variability and other factors.

Photographs of polar bears drowning from “swimming long distances — up to 60 miles —to find ice” were subsequently determined to be results of a severe storm, “but it plainly does not support Mr. Gore’s description.”

Yes, this is the same very wealthy former Senator and Vice President Al Gore who has lobbied Congress for carbon cap-and-trade legislation which would have provided huge windfall benefits to his London-based hedge fund called Generation Investment Management (GIM) that he co-founded with former chief of Goldman Sachs Asset Management David Blood.

GIM, in turn, was a large shareholder in the Chicago Climate Exchange, another company poised to make enormous profits selling CO2 lucreoffsets if cap-and-trade passed.

Both organizations worked hard to persuade governments to block new fossil-fueled power plants.

Gore exuberantly testified at a March 2007 Joint House hearing of the Energy and Science Committee, “as soon as carbon has a price, you’re going to see a wave [of investment] in it  . . . There will be unchained investment.”

Oh, so you seriously imagined this was all about science and saving the planet?

    Al Gore can escape being charged with fraud because his lacks sufficient intellectual acumen to know the difference between fact and fiction. He jumped on the warmist’s bandwagon for financial gain. The manipulation of science for gain by the dishonest “scientists” have easily fooled Mr. Gore. Now you all know!

    • Brin Jenkins

      Oh I think we understand, but escape after he has used his influence to cause so much economic damage?

      You made that up. You can’t show it is true.

      Sounds just like what Director Comey said about Hillary Clinton?

    • Schizophrenic, by definition.

  • The only worthwhile renewable energy scheme is traditional hydroelectric power. Biofuels, solar, and wind power do far more harm than good, and even the United States own National Research Council found that wind and solar reduce CO2 emissions to such a tiny extent that they are not worth subsidizing. The NRC also found that biofuel farming increases greenhouse gas emissions rather than decreasing them. Biofuel farming has raised the cost of fertilizer, farmland, and food all over the world, and is needlessly eroding away our irreplaceable topsoil while increasing water pollution and deforestation. Biofuels damage engines, lower gas mileage, and are energy inefficient because large amounts of fossil fuels are required to manufacture them.

    The renewable energy fad has increased the cost of energy and food with a very high death toll. Malnutrition is the number one cause of premature death worldwide, not war and terrorism, and the number one cause of avoidable mental retardation in children. It is impossible to replace the high energy density of fossil fuels with solar schemes, windmills, and Earth starving biofuels.

    To satisfy 100% of New York City’s electricity needs with wind power would require impossible around-the-clock winds within a limited speed range, and a wind farm the size of the entire state of Connecticut. Solar photovoltaic cells are so inefficient that it would take about 60 square miles of expensive solar panels to generate just one gigawatt of electricity. Even if we used “every piece of wood on the planet, every piece of grass eaten by livestock, and all food crops, that much biomass could only provide about 30 percent of the world’s total energy needs.” — Dr. Timothy Searchinger, Princeton University

    The only authentic replacement for fossil fuels is some form of safe nuclear power, which has the highest energy density of all. The three most promising types of safe nuclear energy are simplified hot fusion technology that does not use expensive lasers, and half a dozen private companies, including aerospace giant Lockheed Martin, have designs they think they can get to work at reasonable cost. The second alternative is Low Energy Nuclear Reaction (a.k.a. cold fusion), which is now proven in laboratories to produce energy, but is as yet unproven as a reliable marketable device. The third alternative is molten salt thorium reactor technology, which is a inherently much safer form of fission technology from the 1970s that does not produce large amounts of nuclear waste. President Richard Nixon abandoned thorium reactor research because they are of no use for making nuclear weapons.

    Governments should end all subsidies and mandates for every energy source across the board and let free market forces come up with an affordable alternative to fossil fuels. Relatively small amounts of money should be spent on fusion power research instead of wasting billions on subsidies and mandates that harm our economy and increase unemployment. Efficient products never require subsidies and mandates. You only have to force and bribe people to buy products that don’t work in a cost effective way.

    Fossil fuels are keeping us all alive, and we should stop demonizing that gift of nature that is feeding us, clothing us, sheltering us, and allowing all of us, our children, and our beloved pets and farm animals to live another day. Without fossil fuels we would not have even been born, and there would be no human civilization for radical environmentalists to complain about. You cannot replace a three course meal (fossil fuels) with a single potato chip (wind, solar, biofuels). That is the basic mathematical truth our politicians are not telling us.

    Despite what the politically motivated IPCC tells us, global warming due to increases in atmospheric CO2 levels is not proven by the measurable facts. Carbon dioxide is a trace gas that makes up less than .04% of Earth’s atmosphere. Variations in solar radiation and water vapor and water droplets (clouds) in the atmosphere are the proven controllers of Earth temperatures. Ancient ice core records and the thermometer measured historic climate record do not show that increases in atmospheric CO2 levels cause increases in Earth temperatures. CO2 is too weak a greenhouse agent, and there is not enough of it to make a recognizable difference in Earth temperatures.

    Man made air pollution, including particulate pollution and a host of airborne chemicals, is a proven cause of global cooling, as air pollution blocks solar radiation. Air pollution created by volcanic eruptions is a major cause of cooling, and massive volcanic eruptions have occasionally been so severe that they caused devastating crop failures worldwide.

    Carbon dioxide is the most essential plant fertilizer, and all of our food and our own bodies are constructed of carbon, oxygen, hydrogen, and chemical elements from the soil. When creatures made of carbon, who are part of the carbon cycle, and who eat carbon (in food), and who expel carbon dioxide with every breath start claiming that carbon is an evil pollutant, then science is pushed aside in favor of yet another false religion, this one called “Climate Change.” A jihad against carbon will not save us; it will by very definition destroy us.

    The only proven form of man made global warming is caused by land use change. Replacing forests with concrete increases ground level temperatures locally. Thus, increases in population due to uncontrolled illegal human invasion will increase warming, as well as increasing water pollution, air pollution, deforestation, and topsoil erosion on top of collapsing our standard of living and the sustainability of all our social safety net programs.

    There is no such thing as “illegal immigration,” but there is massive illegal invasion. By definition, anyone who enters a foreign nation without permission is a criminal. Authentic immigrants fill out forms, wait in line, and respect the laws of the country they want to immigrate to. Invaders just barge in and take what they want. In this overpopulated world, no nation can survive for long unless they have secure borders. Anarchy brings economic, environmental, and societal collapse, not prosperity.

    The destruction of the United States and Europe in favor of corporate globalism has become the political platform of the Left and the big business corporate establishment. They are seeking cheap labor and short term corporate profits and short term political gain. The short term thinkers want to make the West part of the Third World. That idea is “politically correct,” but will make the developed Western countries so poor, overcrowded, ugly, and crime ridden that they are not worth living in. The Third World is an endless baby factory that cannot be shut down. Only a fool would argue that open border anarchy is a positive policy for the survival of our children and our grandchildren.

      The whole make little sense unless the C02 is explained in detail, how is it the driving force when it follows temperature and is not leading it? Building a whole green movement on what is an untruth is morally wrong, I would even say evil as opposition to it is being closed down and threatened even on here.

    • Dano2

      solar, and wind power do far more harm than good,

      [citation needed]

      The renewable energy fad has increased the cost of energy and food with a very high death toll

      In the USA, the opposite is true.

      global warming due to increases in atmospheric CO2 levels is not proven by the measurable facts

      Science doesn’t prove aside, the opposite is true.

      • Google my website, *The Renewable Energy Disaster* for all the facts and figures and the BIG PICTURE on energy production. The bottom line is that diffuse and inherently intermittent energy schemes do not work efficiently. A lack of efficiency causes high prices which we cannot afford. High energy prices = high food prices, more unemployment, lower tax revenues, bigger budget deficits, and more rapid economic and societal collapse. The USA is collapsing and the renewable energy fad only makes that collapse go faster.
        The only authentic replacement for fossil fuels is some form of safe nuclear power because only nuclear power has a high enough energy density and can be reliable 24-7-365. Google *The Fusion Revolution* for the latest in safe nuclear energy schemes that do not produce large amounts of toxic nuclear waste.

    Here is Al the chief faker of GW data and E=green grants?

  • 4TimesAYear

    Yes they should – and not just Al Gore. Those in Congress that want to go after skeptics should be included, and every tv broadcaster that went right along pushing the fraud. The media is supposed to keep these people honest and they not only failed to do their job, they pushed the fraud, too. http://www.cfact.org/2016/07/12/gop-should-seek-fraud-charges-against-al-gore/

  • .04% – The only number you need to know to debate alarmists.

  • stmichrick

    Seems that the evidence for fraud against Gore et al. would be much easier to prove than the specious case against Exxon.
