First he claims that opposition to the assertions of Cli-Fi enthusiasts is like racism, and offers this advice:
“There came a time when friends or people you work with or people you were in clubs with… there came a time when racist comments would come up in the course of the conversation and in years past they were just natural. Then there came a time when people would say, ‘Hey, man why do you talk that way, I mean that is wrong. I don’t go for that so don’t talk that way around me. I just don’t believe that.’ That happened in millions of conversations and slowly the conversation was won.”Brilliant! So, if someone challenges anything a Gorean acolyte says about climate change, said acolyte just walks away, or maybe puts his hands over his ears and sings tra-la-la, and victory is assured!
BTW, have you seen photos of the new Martin Luther King statue?
It’s a good thing they left that big chunk of granite on the back. Eventually, a grateful people - or more likely, their government - can subscribe to the sculpting of Al Gore’s image on the reverse with an appropriate sentiment carved into the base: Hero of the Moral Equivalent of the Civil Rights Movement.
But Al’s not finished. He also believes we should reduce our carbon footprint by eating more organic food and less meat.
Oh, pardon me a minute.
Hey, Al! Your lunch is here!
Seriously, though, has anyone seen a recent photo of Al? He looks like a refrigerator with a Man-in-the-Moon cookie jar sitting on top of it. His gothic dimensions do not suggest a diet of lettuce and oatmeal. Why, I bet if he went on a hunger strike for a week, his unconsumed vittles could support an entire Honduran village, leaving the campesinos completely satiated and bursting their rope belts.
The many frustrations attendant upon full-time prophesying notwithstanding, Al continues to profit handsomely from his advocacy of the global warming flapdoodle. When the time comes that his family and friends, after much soul-searching and consultation with eminent psychiatric specialists, must ultimately put him away for his own good, he can rest assured that the institution in which he is to be confined will be solicitous of his every need. Maybe, under ObamaCare, he won’t have to pay anything at all.
