Are Algore’s hot air emissions causing global warming? (Updated)

Friends, have you ever had moments when, like Howard Beale, the Mad Prophet of the Airwaves, you just just want to scream that you’ve had it with all the BS around you? I had one of those moments several weeks ago. Just before the start of The Lost City, the trailer for Al Gore’s new “documentary,” An Inconvenient Truth, came on the screen. I actually started talking loudly to the screen — “Just shut up, Al” or “You’re full of it, Al,” etc. My wife, mom, and sister looked at me as though they’d have to call in the thorazine cowboys at any moment. At the end of the trailer, I had the immense pleasure of yelling very loudly “SHUT UP, AL!” Several people laughed and applauded.

Our ex-VP has for many, many years been a moving force in the campaign to convince all of us that the world will come to an end if we don’t stop driving our cars and reduce our CO2 emissions. Well, I didn’t buy the global warming hysteria when Algore and he-that-shall-remain-nameless were in the White House, and I don’t buy it now. This “theory” has been shoved down our throats by leftist groups whose ultimate aim is to enact onerous regulatory and economic measures designed to separate me from my rights, my lifestyle, my goods, and my cash. Despite the lies you hear in the MSM, there is absolutely no proof that human beings are responsible for making poor Gaia sick. None.

Every Saturday for the past seven years, I have listened to Steel on Steel, an independent radio show hosted by John Loeffler. Loeffler is, quite simply, one of the (if not the) most reasoned, intelligent voices on radio. Loeffler, a conservative Christian who at times sounds more like a Jefferson libertarian, has amazed me time and again by being far ahead of the news curve on virtually all of the important issues facing our world. On the show he covers politics, history, religion, economics, and on occasion even philosophy. On the June 3, 2006 show (one of the best he has had in the seven years I’ve listened to him) he interviewed climatologist Tim Ball, Ph.D. (, one of 60 scientists who petitioned the Canadian government for a re-examination of the “science” behind the global warming claims. If you think I’m full of it by not buying into the “global warming” feeding frenzy, download this MP3 and give it a listen. Listen to a climatologist — not an ex Vice President, not an actor, not an overfed has-been singer, not a blogger — tell you the rest of the story.

Mr. Loeffler has graciously permitted me to post the MP3 of the show on this site for download. If you like what you hear, support him and his radio show by subscribing. Your Saturdays will never be the same again.

UPDATE: In today’s Canada Free Press, a group of scientists is contesting the scientific validity of Algore’s hysteria-fest, An Inconvenient Truth. To wit:

Professor Bob Carter of the Marine Geophysical Laboratory at James Cook University, in Australia gives what, for many Canadians, is a surprising assessment: “Gore’s circumstantial arguments are so weak that they are pathetic. It is simply incredible that they, and his film, are commanding public attention.”


Appearing before the Commons Committee on Environment and Sustainable Development last year, Carleton University paleoclimatologist Professor Tim Patterson testified, “There is no meaningful correlation between CO2 levels and Earth’s temperature over this [geologic] time frame. In fact, when CO2 levels were over ten times higher than they are now, about 450 million years ago, the planet was in the depths of the absolute coldest period in the last half billion years.” Patterson asked the committee, “On the basis of this evidence, how could anyone still believe that the recent relatively small increase in CO2 levels would be the major cause of the past century’s modest warming?”

  1. I’ve always considered Al Gore(ithm – he’s got a formula for everything…) “Jr.” a sanctimonious, phony, constipated tight-assed methane-bloated humorless oompa-loompa. This latest production is further proof of the guy’s megalomania and grandiosity. Ain’t gonna waste money on it. Instead, I believe I’ll burn a few more hydrocarbons and fire up the barbie tonite – maybe roast a spotted owl or a couple snail darters…or even Nessie, if I catch him.

  2. …and to this that this …human being… *almost* became President of the United States of America!
    What a frightening thought!
    On the other hand, glad to see that he himself has *shut down* the door on running for the top office in 2008.
    Though him being a politician means that… well, pretty much nothing.
    BUT, if he *ever* rises from the dead and runs again, those of us with “dos dedos de frente (a bit of gray matter)” will have to (cheerfully) vote AGAINST him one more time.
    Or as many times as it takes to keep him on the sidelines. Let him bellyache all he wants… we just don’t want/need him in office.

  3. Climate change, climate change. The sky is falling! Don’t these jackasses know the earth has been warming for thousands of years, since the last ice age, hence we don’t live in an ice age. This trend is a product of nature and not the industrial revolution. By the way these changes occur very slowly. Humans (and other animals) adapt over time to the changing circumstances (or go extinct). This has been happening for 4 billion years. Who the hell are we to think that we can “stop” the world from changing? That we can halt the natural order of things?

    Idiots, all of them.

  4. Several scientists have overwhelmingly concurred with Dr. Tim Ball and Prof. Tim Patterson.

    As usual, Mr. Gore is simply full of HOT AIR. We all know he didn’t “invent” computers and his misguided attempt to frighten us about global warming is ludicrous. Many thanks to Mr. Moneo for this valuable information.

    Need your help translating:

    What does LEENKASO mean? With the help of my Spanish/English dictionary, I’ve been able to find the meanings of most Spanish words, but this one has me stumped. Thank you.

  5. Grammy,

    Leenkaso is my own construct meant to be a Cubanism for “trackback”. A trackback is when another blogger links to your post and sends your blog a ping that is noted in the “trackbacks”.

  6. Val,

    Not only have you provided a “translation”, but also explained what trackback means. Mucho gracias. I learn so very much from your blog.

    My Cuban book collection is growing….”Against All Hope”, “Unvanquished”, and Jorge Reyes’ poignant “Rediscovering Cuba.” At last count, 27 books and keeping Amazon in the red! Any recommendations, other than Luis Garcia?
