Gore Criticized by Black Activists for Green Agenda Hurting Poor, Minorities

Press Release from the National Center for Public Policy Research:

Hypocritical Actions, Hysterical Assertions Hurt Gore’s Credibility

Washington, DC – As Al Gore takes his An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Powerdocumentary into theaters nationwide, black activists with the Project 21 leadership network are criticizing the former vice president for being out of touch with the needs of the American people.  In particular, Project 21 members say Gore’s green agenda is harmful to the well-being of poor and minority households and that his actions detract from his message.

On the documentary’s promotional website, people are urged to reduce their “carbon footprint” by using fewer of the plentiful and more economical fossil fuels, to embrace more expensive alternative energy sources and to be politically active in the pursuit of increased environmental regulation.  As energy costs inevitably rise under such an agenda, those who are already at an economic disadvantage will find themselves facing unnecessary new budgetary burdens.

“Al Gore’s comments and actions hammer home the fact that climate change alarmists aren’t taking into account how much their pet project hurts African-Americans, other minorities and low-income families,” said Derrick Hollie, a member of Project 21 and the president of the Reaching America policy organization.  “Energy is the lifeblood of our society.  Any increase in its cost disproportionately affects lower income groups.  Green activists tend to ignore how their agenda affects energy poverty, which keeps disadvantaged populations poor through high energy prices and decreased economic opportunities.”

Additionally, the National Center for Public Policy Research, the parent organization of Project 21, reported this week that Gore’s estate near Nashville, Tennessee used over 21 times more electricity in the past year than the average American household.  This conspicuous consumption of energy from someone who asks others to make do with less – and potentially more expensive – energy raises allegations of hypocrisy.

“Isn’t it cute when someone who has made a living peddling lies about the weather lectures Americans about how they should live?  Actually, it isn’t.  It’s not cute, it doesn’t make sense and it’s downright insulting,” said Project 21 Co-Chairman Stacy Washington, a syndicated talk radio host and U.S. Air Force veteran. “Americans have every right to use all the energy they can afford – just like Al Gore does in a mansion you might be able to see from space at night because of its size and energy use.  Gore simply doesn’t practice what he preaches. His electricity use rivals over 21 American households combined.  We should ignore his climate decrees until he starts walking the walk.”

Another aspect of Gore’s environmental advocacy that angers Project 21 members is his comparison of environmentalism to civil rights.  At the recent EcoCity World Summit in Melbourne, Australia, Gore compared  global warming activism to “all the great moral causes” such as the abolition of slavery and passage of civil rights laws in the United States and the anti-apartheid movement in South Africa.  On comedian Marc Maron’spodcast, he likened the gradual acceptance of civil rights 50 years ago to people now interested in installing solar panels on their homes.

“This is truly rich coming from the son of a segregationist. When his father was filibustering against the civil rights for blacks in the Senate, where was Al Gore, Jr.’s concern?” asked Project 21 Co-Chairman Horace Cooper, a former assistant law professor at the Antonin Scalia Law School at George Mason University, in response to Gore’s Melbourne speech.  “Study after study demonstrate that the radical climate policies advocated by Al Gore, Jr. will hurt blacks and the poor most.  Just as segregation and interracial marriage bans were purported to be for the good of all while clearly done to generate political support, today’s climate alarmism is pushed solely to get the support of a small group of so-called eco-warriors at the expense of blacks.  Please spare us any more of this.”

Al Gore’s “Energy Hog” House Devours up to 34 Times More Energy Than the Typical U.S. Home

Press Release from the National Center for Public Policy Research:

Star of Green Documentary An Inconvenient Sequel “Has Done Little to Prove His Commitment to the Cause in his Own Life”

Power Bills Show Gore Leading Double Life of Preaching Sacrifice to Others While Indulging Himself

Nashville, TN / Washington, D.C. – Al Gore’s Nashville estate devoured more than 21 times the amount of electricity than the average American household over the past year.  A National Center for Public Policy Research report on energy use at the property of the former vice president portrays Gore as a hypocrite who demands others sacrifice for his green zealotry while he enjoys energy without apparent care for cost or capacity.

Gore’s An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power environmental documentary debuts nationwide this Friday.

 Key findings of the National Center’s “Al Gore’s Inconvenient Reality” report, which draws on data obtained from the Nashville Electric Service (NES), include:

  • The 10,070-square-foot 20-room mansion, pool and security gate on Gore’s 2.09-acre estate outside Nashville used 230,889 kilowatt hours (kWh) of electricity during the last 12 months.  According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, the typical American household uses just 10,812 kWh a year.

  • In September of 2016 alone, Gore’s estate guzzled 30,993 kWh of electricity – an amount more than 34 times the national monthly average.

  • Al Gore’s average annual power consumption at his Nashville home was a staggering 21.3 times more than the average American.  He also owns two other homes not included in this report.
  • The former vice president burns through more electricity to heat his pool each year than the average U.S. home uses in six years.

  • The 33 solar panels Gore installed on his home produce only 5.7 percent of the energy his home consumes annually.

  • With an average consumption of 22.9 kWh per square foot over the past year, Gore’s home classifies as an “energy hog” under standards developed by Energy Vanguard – a company specializing in energy efficiency methods.

“Al Gore has attained a near-mythical status for his frenzied efforts to propagandize global warming,” said National Center Senior Fellow Drew Johnson, the author of the report.  “At the same time, Gore has done little to prove his commitment to the cause in his own life. I’m not sure he even believes what he’s saying.”

“While Gore encourages people throughout the world to reduce their carbon footprint and make drastic changes to cut energy consumption, Gore’s own home electricity use has hypocritically increased to more than 21 times the national average the past year with no sign of slowing down,” Johnson said.

Electricity for Gore’s home, pool and security gate comes from NES and is largely derived from coal and nuclear power – with just 3.2 percent generated by wind and solar alternatives.

Gore’s behavior conflicts with behaviors he suggests others follow.  On the website for his documentary, people are urged to “lower your carbon footprint” and advocate for renewable energy use.  It asks people to sign a “ Pledge to #BeInconvenient” that commits them to “switch my home… to 100% renewable energy,” persuade others “to pursue climate solutions” and buy tickets to his documentary.

“Like most sequels, Al Gore’s documentary and his lifestyle choices don’t live up to expectations,” said National Center President David A. Ridenour.  “Al Gore is asking Americans to make expensive and uncomfortable changes to adhere to his green goals, yet his electricity bills show he does not live the way he wants to impose on others.  He can’t just talk the talk – he must walk the walk.  And he has now failed at that twice.”

This is the second time Gore’s conspicuous consumption of power has been exposed.  In 2007, Johnson – then president of the Tennessee Center for Policy Research – reported that Gore used over 220,000 kWh of electricity a year at the same property. This led Gore to install solar panels, a costly geothermal heating system and other alleged energy-saving home improvements.  Despite these renovations, his 2016-2017 electricity consumption is over 10,000 kWh more than a decade ago.

Black Activists Criticize Al Gore for Comparing Climate Activism to Civil Rights, Abolitionist Movements

Press Release from the National Center for Public Policy Research:

Gore Supports Climate Policies Harmful to Poor, Minorities and Silent About Father’s Segregationist History

Washington, DC – Earlier this week, former U.S. Vice President Al Gore, Jr. compared climate activism with moral movements to abolish slavery, end apartheid and promote women’s suffrage.  Black conservatives with the Project 21  leadership network question the accuracy and sincerity of Gore’s wild comparison.

“This is truly rich coming from the son of a segregationist.  When his father was filibustering against the civil rights for blacks in the Senate, where was Al Gore, Jr.’s concern?” asked Project 21 Co-Chairman Horace Cooper, a former assistant law professor at the Antonin Scalia Law School at George Mason University.  “Study after study demonstrate that the radical climate policies advocated by Al Gore, Jr. will hurt blacks and the poor most.  Just as segregation and interracial marriage bans were purported to be for the good of all while clearly done to generate political support, today’s climate alarmism is pushed solely to get the support of a small group of so-called eco-warriors at the expense of blacks.  Please spare us any more of this.”

At the EcoCity World Summit in Melbourne, Australia, Gore asserted global warming activism was “in the tradition of all the great moral causes.”  In the July 13 address, Goreadded : “The abolition of slavery, woman’s suffrage and women’s rights, the civil rights movement and the anti-apartheid movement in South Africa, the movement to stop the toxic phase of nuclear arms race and more recently the gay rights movement. . .  All of these movements have one thing in common.  They all have met with ferocious resistance. . .”

“The abolitionist movement, the suffrage movement, the civil rights movement and the anti-apartheid movement were all unmistakably moral movements.  Each sought social and economic equality and were met with ‘ferocious resistance’ to preserve a status quo of separate and unequal second-class citizenship,” noted Project 21 member Derryck Green , who has earned a doctorate in theology and spiritual leadership.  “When Al Gore, Jr. associates these moral movements of history with one grounded in questionable data, he gives climate change activists unearned moral credibility they haven’t earned and don’t deserve.  Gore trivializes the historical suffering and accomplishments of blacks and women in both the United States and South Africa.  Climate change isn’t and will never be the moral movement Gore and his acolytes want it to be.”

“The hysteria over America’s cancelled participation in the Paris climate accord has the greens’ minister-in-chief, Al Gore, Jr., behind the podium uttering nonsense,” said Project 21 Co-Chairman Stacy Washington, a syndicated talk radio host, columnist and U.S. Air Force veteran.  “Gore’s latest statement comparing efforts to redistribute hard-earned American taxpayer dollars to his cronies and other countries with the abolition of slavery in America, the anti-apartheid campaign in South Africa and other historic efforts is utter nonsense.  Fighting people being owned as property and debased in an entrenched system enshrined in law is akin to worshiping the idea that humans can materially impact the climate?  He cannot be serious!”

Putin Spends 5 Million to “Spike” Clouds With Chemicals So It Wouldn’t Rain on His Parade

Vladimir Putin is preparing to play God and spike clouds with a chemical cocktail to prevent it raining on his vast Red Square military parade on Saturday.

Reports say the Kremlin is ready to splash out £5million to use Soviet technology which should guarantee sunshine for the commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the end of the Second World War in Europe – and Putin’s 15th year as Russia’s head of state.

Ahead of the parade, a fleet of Russian air force planes are on standby from around 6am to fly from an airbase north of Moscow to spray special reactant chemical agents over any thick clouds, causing them to release their rainfall in downpours before reaching the capital.<<<Read More>>>

And while this is going on, AND the U.S. continues it’s decades-long practice of pumping our atmosphere full of toxic chemicals, we hear from the totalitarian tyrant himself, ALGORE.

Al Gore’s $15 trillion carbon tax

While ALGORE burns up more fossil fuels that thousands of citizen slaves, schlepping around the world in his private jet, he stands to rake in trillions of dollars if he can accomplish his Carbon Tax Plan that would destroy the fossil fuel industry and bolster all the non fossil fuel energy companies of which he is heavily invested.

BUT DON’T GO LOOK!

“Al Gore wants to reverse modernity and save the world from itself through an elimination of its fossil-fuel-based energy system. During the final week of April, his newly created Energy Transitions Commission released a document setting forth a fool’s-errand pathway to “decarbonize” the world’s energy system.

If this sounds familiar, it is. Gore’s plan features a new, sophisticated, and expensive public-relations campaign, but it’s all based on his views on carbon dioxide first broached in his 1992 book Earth in the Balance, which he reissued in 2000 for his failed presidential campaign. The subsequent efforts made by Gore during the past 25 years have transformed little from their genesis, and he remains as tragically wrong today as he was when he first surfaced as an opponent of everything linked to carbon-dioxide.>>>Read More>>>

Russians Can’t Collect Weather Data Because Global Warming Bears Ain’t Scared

Or something. To further my afternoon of sharing the insanity of the world, from the fact that idiots are “protecting” a species that doesn’t need protecting, much because George W. Bush is a moron puppet, to scientists unable to protect themselves, to believing the problem with bears is the result of some unproven, lied about climate phenomenon called Climate Change. The level of insanity is growing at rates of speed to fast to control. And by god did you know that because insanity is growing so fast, it’s generating heat and increasing the amount of carbon dioxide….OH GEEZUS! WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE! The trees will save me. I’ll call on the trees.

And if the story isn’t entertaining enough (sorry, if you think the news article is truth there’s no hope for you) and the madness of the world’s leaders and scientists aren’t enough, make sure you pour a cup of coffee, or some other chemical compound that changes the composition of what’s left of your brain, and read the comments to the article.

“The phenomenon may have intensified, though, due to climate change.

Melting sea ice and shifting patterns in the populations of the polar bears’ marine prey stoke the desperation of bears, which are being forced to travel farther for food.”<<<Read More>>>

All hail Algore! There can never be another explanation to anything again…except global warming. Algore and the “All-Seeing Eye.”

Al Gore: A Legend in His Own Tiny Mind

I have a relative who once founded and run a business he called, “Spots Be Gone” – a rug cleaning business. Now it appears that the sun’s spots-be-gone leading many scientists to further think the earth is heading straight into a period of global cooling.

We also are now hearing more and more that those same “scientists,” who ignorantly jumped on board with the unproven theory that the earth was warming and we were all going to die from melting polar ice, are now getting ready to jump on the global cooling bandwagon.

However, Al Gore, wishing to continue his fraud and the making of billions more money, isn’t wavering from his perpetuated lie. Not only does Algore think we all need to do more to prevent “global warming” so he can fly his jet around the world more often, he now, in his feeble, sick, evil and demented tiny little brain, has likened himself to Jackie Robinson in breaking through the race barrier in professional baseball.

Keep it up Al! Someday, like O.J. Simpson, you keep telling yourself you are way too damned cool for this world, and you’ll actually believe it one day. Perhaps you too will end up in jail right alongside Orenthal James Simpson.

Polar Bears Love Global Warming

The scientists found that contrary to claims made by Gore in his 2006 film, polar bears have adapted to past warm periods. This is in line with Cronin’s work which has found that polar bears have been a genetically-distinct species long enough to have survived past periods where the Arctic had little to no ice.

The new study not only finds polar bears survived ice-free periods in the Arctic, but there’s no evidence of any other marine species going extinct over the last 1.5 million years. That even goes for walruses, which have made news lately for massive beachings in the Arctic some say are being driven by global warming.

To Save the Planet, Give All Your Money to Al Gore!

And I thought that we are supposed to believe that the earth is being destroyed by Al Gore’s fake climate change. So KILL THE BASTARDS that don’t believe. Is this sort of like the Inquisition? Is this sort of like Islam? Is this sort of like terrorism? Is this sort of like REALLY WRONG AND YET BLIND, BRAINWASHED PEOPLE CAN’T SEE PAST THE END OF THEIR NOSE?

There is nothing in this statement that indicates anything about saving the planet or the harms of some fake damned climate change nonsense. If you can’t read what’s below and understand what’s really behind it from this lying piece of camel dung, Al Gore, then please, let me sell you a bridge I own in Brooklyn. It’s on sale today. Get it before Al Gore taxes it to save HIS planet bank account.

“Gore said forward-thinking investors are moving away from companies that invest in fossil fuels and towards companies investing in renewable energy. “We need to put a price on carbon to accelerate these market trends,” Gore told the Chicago Tribune, referring to a proposed federal cap-and-trade system that would penalize companies that exceeded their carbon-emission limits. “And in order to do that, we need to put a price on denial in politics.””(emboldening added)<<<Read More>>>

Al Gore: The $90 Trillion Idiot Fascist

It no longer matters whether Al Gore, or any of his com padres are evil fascists, the brainwashing is near complete. People will follow him into the cities and give their cars and free lifestyle because they are convinced the warming planet will kill them if they don’t. Catch me if you can!

From Business Insider:

“Spend $90 trillion (£59 trillion) over the next few years to redesign all the cities — as in all the cities on earth — so people live in more densely packed neighborhoods and don’t need cars.

The $90 trillion proposal came from former US vice president Al Gore, former president of Mexico Felipe Calderon, and their colleagues on The Global Commission on the Economy and Climate. That group hopes to persuade the world’s leaders to do something about humanity’s suicidal effort to heat the earth’s climate.”<<<Read More>>>
