Al Gore uses more electricity in a week than 28 million Ugandans together use in a year

Al Gore's Nashville home

Africa’s real climate crisis

By Fiona Kobusingye

Life in Africa is often nasty, impoverished and short. AIDS kills 2.2 million Africans every year according to WHO (World Health Organization) reports. Lung infections cause 1.4 million deaths, malaria 1 million more, intestinal diseases 700,000. Diseases that could be prevented with simple vaccines kill an additional 600,000 annually, while war, malnutrition and life in filthy slums send countless more parents and children to early graves.

And yet, day after day, Africans are told the biggest threat we face is – global warming.

However, the real problem isn’t questionable or fake science, hysterical claims and worthless computer models that predict global warming disasters. It’s that they’re being used to justify telling Africans that we shouldn’t build coal or natural gas electrical power plants. It’s the almost total absence of electricity keeping us from creating jobs and becoming modern societies. It’s that these policies KILL.

The average African life span is lower than it was in the United States and Europe 100 years ago. But Africans are being told we shouldn’t develop, or have electricity or cars because, now that those countries are rich beyond anything Africans can imagine, they’re worried about global warming.

Al Gore and UN climate boss Yvo de Boer tell us the world needs to go on an energy diet. Well, I have news for them. Africans are already on an energy diet. We’re starving!

Al Gore uses more electricity in a week than 28 million Ugandans together use in a year. And those anti-electricity policies are keeping us impoverished.

Al Gore’s house runs entirely on solar power so it is zero emissions.

However Al Gore’s house runs entirely on solar power so it is zero emissions.

And also he has solar powered limos and jets.

And his yacht is powered by wind turbines!

Wow, this stuff is so heart breaking. That is the most disturbing thing I have ever seen.

Kate, put the Kool Aid down.
AlGore’s compound can’t be totally run by solar.
You are so wrong.
Google is a good place to start.

It is amazing to see how wealthy Al Gore has become from the man-caused global warming myth. In fact, my opinion is that he doesn’t believe it himself. If he did he would be eating only organic plant sources in moderation. He obviously is not doing that. Second, he would have made electronic versions of his book available for free. Maybe the computers used to read the book could be solar-powered. Another idea would be to lead by example. Move out of the mansion and live like he’s telling the rest of us to.

The only reason that there is so much scientific study on the subject is that that is where the grants are. In other words, the government will give you all kinds of money to study something that shows that we’re destroying the planet. Try getting a grant to show that there’s global cooling and you’ll be flat broke. Interestingly enough, in the mid seventies it was widely believed that we were starting into an era of global cooling.

To sum it up; Al Gore is a liar and a hypocrite.
