Al Gore Finally Loses It

gore_speech.jpgWell that's it, folks. Send the men with the little white coats right on over to Al Gore's house because he could use a little rest at Shady Acres. In spite of his new business venture, Gore still thinks the environment is his key to greatness.

The refusal of the US and Australia to sign the Kyoto pact that Gore helped draft clearly annoys the former US vice-president. He draws parallels between those who dispute global warming, and its investment implications, with Neville Chamberlain and others who wanted to appease the Nazis before World War II.

Why is it that when the left wants to make a point that they compare anyone who disagrees with them to the Nazis? Not only is it incorrect most of the time, but it's such a tired cliche that even if it were true, it loses any meaning that it might have once had.

Winston Churchill warned in the 1930s that a storm was gathering and democratic nations would be forced to "sip from the bitter cup" until they reasserted their moral authority.

"The time of half-measure has passed. We are entering a period of consequences," says Gore, quoting Churchill.

Al Gore quoting Winston Churchill is like Paris Hilton quoting Shakespeare--it doesn't quite work.

"What changed in the US with hurricane Katrina was a feeling that we have entered a period of consequences and that bitter cup will be offered to us again and again until we exert our moral authority and respond appropriately," he says. "I don't want to diminish the threat of terrorism at all, it is extremely serious, but on a long-term global basis, global warming is the most serious problem we are facing."

What exactly does he mean by the term moral authority? It's not clear, but it's one of those feel-good terms that make us all sit up a little taller. "Moral authority?" you may be thinking. "That's right, I need to do something about that." Also, his using the term, "I don't want to diminish the threat of terrorism...but..." means that yes, he does want to diminish it. To Al, the unproven hypothesis of global warming being the fault of humans is definitely more important than terrorism.

This is the man who claims that it's the Republicans who invent phony crises in order to win approval for their agenda. Seems to me there are others out there ready to create phony crises in order to win approval. At least we know the terrorists are real...
