Pope Gore gathers religious leaders for help; Ring kissing optional

From Climate Change Fraud, October 12, 2008

Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore says he gathered more than 130 pastors and other religious figures in Nashville to enlist them in his global warming fight.

The outspoken environmentalist said in a statement that the faith-based volunteers who traveled to Nashville to hear him speak will be invaluable additions to his ongoing efforts to combat global warming and its impact on the planet, The (Nashville) Tennessean reported Sunday.

“People of faith are vital to the effort to combat the climate crisis and represent all walks of life,” Gore said regarding Thursday’s gathering at the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel in Nashville.

Gore spoke to members of 18 religious denominations at the gathering, ranging from Presbyterian leaders to Roman Catholic officials.

The Nobel laureate said in his statement that the religious volunteers would help spread information regarding his Climate Project to their congregations in 37 U.S. states, The Tennessean reported.

“This new group of trainees is absolutely amazing. I am certain that they will have a tremendous impact as they return home to their congregations and communities all across the United States,” the “An Inconvenient Truth” creator said.

Climate change more threatening than credit crisis: Greens

By the blogowner, honestclimate, October 13, 2008

The Greens have warned that ignoring the threat of climate change will send the world into an economic tailspin far greater than that of the global financial meltdown. Here’s what the Greens Leader Bob Brown has to say:

“I would say to Kevin Rudd, listen to the people of Australia,” he said.

“I think you’ll find more ecological wisdom in our average primary school than you’ll find round your Cabinet table.”

I’d have to agree with you there Mr Brown, school kids are smart as has been witnessed by the following blog set up by a 14 year old school girl: Kids against AGW.

Green denies tree murder

From the Andrew Bolt Blog, October 13, 2008

How we laughed:

THE wife of a convener of the Australian Conservation Foundation is being charged with the alleged removal of 150 trees on the couple’s Blue Mountains property.

But the convenor, Ross Tzannes, denies he or his wife are hypocrites:

Mr Tzannes, who isalso a lawyer and a former president of the Sydney Film Festival, said he and his wife were overseas when the contractor was working on the property.

Overseas? Did Tzannes at least offset that dangerously gassy travel? By planting, say, trees?

(Warning to readers wishing to comment: there is a court case pending. Tzannes and his wife deny the allegations.)

Extreme Weather Alert: Meteorologists predict intensely brisk autumn. Will it be blamed on global warming?

From the Gore Lied Blogspot, October 10, 2008

You’ve been warned:

“Cool air is streaming down from the North, pounding the entire eastern seaboard with intensely moderate weather…It’s whipping up severe 10 to 15 mile per hour breezes…Stay alert for elevated squirrel activity, and if you’re driving be aware of the danger posed by orangey rays of autumnal sunlight glinting off duck ponds – they can blind you…..”

Economic woes may give planet a breather

By Michele Kambas

From Reuters, October 7, 2008

NICOSIA (Reuters) – A slowdown in the world economy may give the planet a breather from the excessively high carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions responsible for climate change, a Nobel Prize winning scientist said on Tuesday.

Atmospheric scientist Paul J Crutzen, who has in the past floated the possibility of blitzing the stratosphere with sulfur particles to cool the earth, said clouds gathering over the world economy could ease the earth’s environmental burden.

Slower economic growth worldwide could help slow growth of carbon dioxide emissions and trigger more careful use of energy resources, though the global economic turmoil may also divert focus from efforts to counter climate change, said Crutzen, winner of the 1995 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his work on the depletion of the ozone layer.

“It’s a cruel thing to say … but if we are looking at a slowdown in the economy, there will be less fossil fuels burning, so for the climate it could be an advantage,” Crutzen told Reuters in an interview.

Mobile phones to track carbon footprinty

By Alok Jha

From Gaurdian, September 29, 2008

Carbon Diem's mobile phone carbon calculator Carbon Diem’s mobile phone carbon calculator

Keeping track of your carbon footprint could become as simple as slipping a mobile phone in your pocket: a London-based start-up company has developed software for mobile phones that uses global positioning satellites to work out automatically whether you are walking, driving or flying and then calculate your impact on the environment.

Carbon Diem’s inventors claim that, by using GPS to measure the speed and pattern of movement, their algorithm can identify the mode of transport being used. It can therefore calculate the amount of carbon dioxide that a journey has emitted into the atmosphere – without any need for input from the traveller.

Gore demonstrates he doesn’t understand basic meteorology, much less climate

From Watts Up with That?, October 5, 2008

Gore links Iowa floods and tornadoes to climate change, but makes a basic error on global temperature to evaporation linkage, plus he misses the real reason behind imagined tornado increases.

Former Vice President Al Gore, right, gives hearty greetings to John Davis, left, of Hamburg at the Iowa Democratic Party’s Jefferson Jackson Dinner, the state party’s annual fundraiser, at Hy-Vee Hall in Des Moines on Saturday night. Gore was guest speaker.

[Excerpt: In a recent article in the Des Moines Register, Al ] Gore attributed the historic floods that devastated Iowa in June to man-made emissions causing more water to evaporate from oceans, increasing average humidity worldwide. “In 66 of your 99 counties, the flood damage was truly historic.” Gore told the crowd of 1,000 Democratic donors. “No one has ever seen a flood like this.” Gore also blamed climate change for increased tornadoes, including the one that leveled much of Parkersburg earlier this year. “Yes, we’ve always had tornadoes in Iowa and in Tennessee,” he said. “But they’re coming more frequently and they’re stronger.”

In my opinion, the biggest error Gore makes is that water vapor in the atmosphere (and water cycle) has a much shorter residence time than his worrisome CO2; days to weeks from evaporation to precipitation, and thus would not be linked to “warming” now, since warming has subsided globally.
And, as all four global temperature metrics (UAH, RSS, HadCRUT, GISS) have demonstrated, we are cooler globally now than in 2005 than when his An Inconvenient Truth movie came out, and the current global temperature anomaly is hovering close to the zero line:

FART tax will save the planet? October 6, 2008

What do you mean my farts cause global warming?

What do you mean my farts cause global warming? The globe hasn't warmed since 1998. And they have the cheek to call us sheep stupid!

FART tax will save the planet?

From Gore Lied, October 5, 2008

New Zealand has a lot of sheep and cows. They belch and fart a lot. Massive carbon footprint that must be dealt with in this day and age to meet Kyoto goals. Fart tax is the answer. Farmers not happy. Read it all here.

Maybe they could just use a few million of these.
