"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.
