The image is of a rider, intent on arriving at a place, but he’s ridden his horse to death. Still he sits astride the dead animal, whipping its flanks. THINK AL (Inconvenient Truth) GORE.
Climate skeptics, citing recent snowfall in parts of the East Coast, have mocked Gore. Tycoon Donald Trump says Gore should be stripped of his Nobel Peace Prize for warning about climate change. “It’s going to keep snowing in D.C. until Al Gore cries “uncle,”” Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., wrote on Twitter.
Nobody knows where gore picked up his recent data, but he took the pulpit once again. Now, Gore says, “Global data show last month was the second-hottest January since surface temperatures were first measured 130 years ago and the last 10 years were the hottest decade since modern records have been kept.”
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., who’s been working with Democrats to craft a compromise, says the current so-called “cap and trade” bill won’t pass. In an op-ed piece Sunday by The New York Times’ Thomas Friedman, Graham is quoted as saying that Republicans need to support some kind of climate bill even if they don’t believe in global warming.
Really, Sen. Graham. Why don’t you think Cap and Trade will pass? Maybe because it’s based on a completely FALSE premise and now Americans understand that it will further gut their already fragile economy?
