Propagandist Al Gore Needs a New Shtick

Another Algore-promoted Scam Hurting Millions

Leave it to "Über-bright" Al Gore (yes, that was sarcasm) to step in it again, in his attempt to transport the treasury of the world into his and his friends' piggy banks.

The global warming hoax (read about its fallacies and LIES HERE) and the Algore Carbon Offset Credit Union and Supermarket apparently isn't a big enough or profitable enough scam, swindle, or fraud (take your pick of terms) for the defeated (but award-winning, don't forget award-winning!) 2000 presidential candidate. Oh, no. Besides trying to force expensive (and environmentally harmful and poisonous, if they break) compact-fluorescent light bulbs onto the national "Thou shalt buy..." directives, His Impotence is wildly supportive of the ethanol scam as a nation-saving alternative to the big bad Arabs (read about its fallacies and LIES in a good article from Slate HERE).

Au contraire, Big Al.

People (whom you are trying to save from themselves with all the self-created dangers from global warming and combusting all that petroleum) are actually, how shall I out this?... in danger of STARVING or going bankrupt trying to just put food on the table.

GREAT article HERE, excerpts below:

Food Crisis Starts Eclipsing Climate Change Worries

Gore Ducks, as a Backlash Builds Against Biofuels

By JOSH GERSTEIN, Staff Reporter of the Sun | April 25, 2008

The campaign against climate change could be set back by the global food crisis, as foreign populations turn against measures to use foodstuffs as substitutes for fossil fuels.

With prices for rice, wheat, and corn soaring, food-related unrest has broken out in places such as Haiti, Indonesia, and Afghanistan. Several countries have blocked the export of grain. There is even talk that governments could fall if they cannot bring food costs down.

One factor being blamed for the price hikes is the use of government subsidies to promote the use of corn for ethanol production. An estimated 30% of America’s corn crop now goes to fuel, not food.

“I don’t think anybody knows precisely how much ethanol contributes to the run-up in food prices, but the contribution is clearly substantial,” a professor of applied economics and law at the University of Minnesota, C. Ford Runge, said. A study by a Washington think tank, the International Food Policy Research Institute, indicated that between a quarter and a third of the recent hike in commodities prices is attributable to biofuels.

Ethanol was initially promoted as a vehicle for America to cut back on foreign oil…but the food crisis does not augur well for ethanol’s prospects.

It takes around 400 pounds of corn to make 25 gallons of ethanol,” Mr. Senauer, also an applied economics professor at Minnesota, said. “It’s not going to be a very good diet but that’s roughly enough to keep an adult person alive for a year.”

Mr. Senauer said, “Crop-based biofuels are not part of the solution. They, in fact, add to the problem. Whether Al Gore has caught up with that, somebody ought to ask him.
Mr. Gore was not available for an interview yesterday on the food crisis, according to his spokeswoman. A spokesman for Mr. Gore’s public campaign to address climate change, the Alliance for Climate Protection, declined to comment for this article. (Wave comment: Not available for comment? I'm SHOCKED!)

However, the scientist who shared the Nobel Peace Prize with Mr. Gore, Rajendra Pachauri of the United Nations’s Intergovernmental Panel of Climate Change, has warned that climate campaigners are unwise to promote biofuels in a way that risks food supplies.

In an interview last year, Mr. Gore expressed his support for corn-based ethanol, but endorsed moving to what he called a “third generation” of so-called cellulosic ethanol production, which is still in laboratory research. “It doesn’t compete with food crops, so it doesn’t put pressure on food prices,” the former vice president told Popular Mechanics magazine.

A Harvard professor of environmental studies who has advised Mr. Gore, Michael McElroy, warned in a November-December 2006 article in Harvard Magazine that “the production of ethanol from either corn or sugar cane presents a new dilemma: whether the feedstock should be devoted to food or fuel. With increasing use of corn and sugar cane for fuel, a rise in related food prices would seem inevitable.” The article, “The Ethanol Illusion” went so far as to praise Senator McCain for summing up the corn-ethanol energy initiative launched in the United States in 2003 as “highway robbery perpetrated on the American public by Congress.”

The most obvious impact the food crisis has had in America, aside from higher prices, is the imposition of rationing at some warehouse stores to deal with a spike in demand for large quantities of rice, oil, and flour.

Robin Hood would steal from the rich and give to the poor. What's it called when the rich steal from the poor and middle-class to share with their rich friends, and keep the poor people poor, and make the middle-class poorer? Oh, yeah... LIBERALISM


Al Gore Ministries Continues Indoctrination

Al Gore is planning a sequel to his mockumentary, An Inconvenient Truth. I’m sure Gore will clear up all the misconceptions and half- truths in this one. Or, maybe it’ll be called “An Inconvenient Truth II: The Search For Truths In The First One”. In any case, I’m sure it’ll be comprised of more global warming nonsense, lots of slides, more yawn-inducing lectur….zzzzzzzzzzzzzz…
