Al Gore and company, meeting at the World Business Summit in Denmark to hammer out strategy for corporations to live up to their climate obligations may not have solved the world economic crisis, but they did give a boost to the local economy in Copenhagen.

According to local escort agencies and prostitutes, business was booming.

It's good to know that with the future of the world's economy and the survival of the planet weighing heavily on their minds, these guys were still able to kick back and relax. However, reports indicate CO2 levels in the city increased significantly due to heavy breathing.

Al Gore is preaching again, pushing the need for government regulation to stop the runaway global warming. But ahead of the world leaders meeting, he's meeting with the leaders of business, trying to get a jump on the coming changes. There's a couple of things wrong with his campaign, not the least of which is the utter lack of any global warming in the last several years. Today they are calling it "climate change" to avoid those who will point out that obvious fact, but the failure of their predictions to come true still hasn't changed their propaganda.

The predictions were that although global warming had slowed down a bit it was going to return like a house afire in 2009. That hasn't happened and so they pushed it ahead another ten years. That still doesn't look very likely so they are now calling for future dates that many of us will never see (and that Al Gore will never see, either, so he's pretty safe).

The truth is that Al Gore sounds like a televangelist trying to round up donations from believers.

Saying there remained time to act to avoid the direst consequences of global warming, Gore called for rapid action to stem the problem.

"We have to do it this year, not next year. Mother Nature does not do bailouts," the former vice president said.


While he preaches carbon and energy austerity, like the televangelist who is bilking his flock, Gore's house uses 20 times the energy annually of the average American. He jets around the world and travels in limos collecting his huge speaking fees while his company that sells carbon offsets makes him richer every time he gains a convert.

Gore hopes to get business executives of large corporations to push for a global agreement on environmental issues.
As more people become wary of the claims of the global warming alarmists, the term "global warming" itself is being phased out. We have already seen this in the quiet change to the more popular "climate change", used universally without reference to the fact that the change is for the cooler, not the warmer. But now, a marketing firm that specializes in environmental concerns, ecoAmerica, is urging that journalists and proponents adopt a new baffle phrase, "our deteriorating atmosphere".

EcoAmerica has been conducting research for the last several years to find new ways to frame environmental issues and so build public support for climate change legislation and other initiatives. A summary of the group’s latest findings and recommendations was accidentally sent by e-mail to a number of news organizations by someone who sat in this week on a briefing intended for government officials and environmental leaders.

As the environmental groups wage their peculiar war on modern society, they find that the focus of the American people soon shifts from what they perceive as questionable science and media hype to the real problems that they face daily.

The war is won with words, as the scare tactics begin to alienate people, they will lure them back with soft, kind words that promise a bright future. They are still the same policies that they screamed at us yesterday. Those policies will still have the same devastating effects. The climate change, warmer or cooler, is still beyond our control. But with a little doublespeak and help from the media, they still believe they can control us.
Poor Al Gore. He stumps and preaches and spreads the word, but fewer and fewer Americans are coming up for the global warming altar call. In fact, a full 41% of Americans now believe that the media representations of the dangers of global warming are exaggerated.

This is good news, of course, for it indicates a growing sense of distrust amongst Americans for the pre-digested and pre-loaded opinion pieces that are presented as news on major media outlets. Considering all points of view and making up your own mind is once again becoming the norm.

For instance, in an article the other day on the AP, they hyped the certainty of impending global warming disaster. Accompanying the piece was a photograph of an iceberg floating in a sparkling blue ocean. The iceberg, of course had a large hole in the center, indicating its fragility. The caption however, reveals that the photo was taken in August of 2007. Imagine, an Arctic iceberg melting in summer.

It's not really about what they say, and definitely not about the headlines. Often, it's what they don't say. Another article stated that 2005 - 2007 were the hottest years on record according to "some measurements". They didn't tell you that those measurements were later proved to be faulty and that the hottest year on record was actually 1934.

So here's to the growing number of thinking Americans, to those who are tired of the hype and misinformation and prefer to make up their own minds. Without them, we wouldn't have an America today, and without them, we won't have one in the future.
