Ok, let's assume for a moment that humans cause global warming. Not by making God angry, the way the evangelists claim that the gays and lesbians in New Orleans made God angry prior to hurricane Katrina. Not by offending Allah, the way the Iranian mullahs claim that women exposing too much of their breasts causes earthquakes.
Let's assume that humans cause global warming in the way that Al Gore - The Goracle Of Music City Tennessee - claims that we cause global warming: our "carbon footprints" are too big. Our homes require too much heat and air conditioning. We waste water.
Next, let's assume that this article in The L.A. Times is not filled with typos. Let's assume that the person who wrote it wasn't drunk.
Former Vice President Al Gore and his wife, Tipper, have added a Montecito-area property to their real estate holdings, reports the Montecito Journal.I have no idea how many square feet of house are required to accomodate 6 fireplaces. I don't know why Al and Tipper need five bedrooms. But I do have theories about Big Al's biological composition, and why nine bathrooms are a requirement. The man is full of more shit than the latrines at Fort Pemberton.
The couple spent $8,875,000 on an ocean-view villa on 1.5 acres with a swimming pool, spa and fountains, a real estate source familiar with the deal confirms. The Italian-style house has six fireplaces, five bedrooms and nine bathrooms.
My online friend in Korea, Cedric Katesby, recently mailed me a treasure-trove of good books. The one I'm currently reading is called "Why People Believe Weird Things".
I don't have a copy in front of me right now, but one of the great chapter headings goes something like this: "Smart people often believe weird things, because they're so good (smart) at defending beliefs they adopted for non-smart reasons".
A lot of people side with The Goracle on global warming simply because he's a Democrat. To oppose him is to give aid and comfort to the enemy. Well, whatever floats your boat. Yeah, we should protect the environment. But we can safely discount Gore's claims that unless we give him money, the oceans will boil.
He. Does. Not. Believe. It.
You can hit the "Al Gore" label at the bottom of this post and see that Gore doesn't believe any of this mess. Not a word.
He's all set to become the world's first carbon-control billionaire.
He calls his investments "putting his money where his mouth is".
He wants to require YOU to put YOUR money where his mouth is.
The scale and magnitude of the scam he's trying to execute is beyond anything we've ever seen before.
He's the most hypocritical son of a bitch that God put guts in.
The smart people who continue to defend him should admit that they do so for non-smart reasons.
