Al Gore has written a 7,000-word essay for Rolling Stone in which he criticizes President Obama for not completely sharing his climate-change monomania.
"President Obama has never presented to the American people the magnitude of the climate crisis," Gore says. "He has not defended the science against the ongoing withering and dishonest attacks. Nor has he provided a presidential venue for the scientific community ... to bring the reality of the science before the public."
I cannot imagine wading through 7,000 words of Gore’s sanctimonious, leaden prose on any subject – not even on his late-night experiences with comely masseuses – without the fortification of massive amounts of alcoholic refreshment. And since I am only a very occasional drinker, other pathologists of the Cli-Fi hysteria, suitably hollow-legged, will have to do the honors.

But even the snippets in the Fox News piece linked above are sufficient to plausibly suggest the utter worthlessness of Gore’s latest pronouncements as pontifex maximus of the global warming religion: more cries of “Hi-yo, Kyoto!” and the same old mulish resistance to scientific points of view that don’t fit the narrative to which he has permanently harnessed his energies; mere ideological leftovers that have acquired a coat of fungus and begun to stink up the refrigerator. Seven thousand words worth.

Update: Haw! Steven Hayward at Powerline rounds up some of the pithy observations appearing in the comment thread at Rolling Stone.

Update II: An Australian acolyte of the Gorean flapdoodle writes one of the stupidest articles in history. Upside? It's far less than 7,000 words.

Update III: Looks like Al is entering a new line of business.

I might be just a little concerned about AGW if AlBore didn't just buy a $9 million house on the coast in Kalifornia.

I lived in a dorm in college, and there were a couple of guys on my floor that were real jerks. It was with great pleasure that I watched them argue one night, and almost come to blows.

Kind of like the pleasure I feel after reading this about Al do-as-I-say Gore and Barry whatever-it-takes Obama.

Personally, I like his 100-ft bio-diesel powered houseboat, which is docked in a lake with no access to bio-diesel. It also has a couple of jet skis that I suppose are solar-powered, or perhaps run on unicorn farts.

WV: potsych -- Algore's monomania is a result of a potsych episode dating back to the late 1960s.

7000 words represents one heckuva lot of carbon output. No doubt Gorezilla punished himself by purchasing offsets from himself.

I could believe Al Gore is just delusional about global warming, if it weren't for the millions of dollars he's raked in from various energy corporations and carbon offset scams. He continues to harp on globalwarmingclimatechange because it makes him money, and yet more money. The only conclusion possible is that he is a lying, cheating, greedy POS.

Which doesn't absolve the gullible idiots who keep believing him.

I think there should have been at least one mention of the "Al Gore Rhythm Method" of production.

How many children does Al Gore have?
"Save the Planet! Say no to babies".
Good comment RebeccaH.
